I'm extremely disappointed in the poor discipline shown by May (which is not unusual for him).  Regardless of whether the decision is right or wrong, he should never have put himself in that position.  It wasn't a show of strength, but rather a show of stupidity, which is likely to cost the team.  Grrr.

The opposition player was not watching where he was going. I think May probably thought that the player would look up and avoid May - but he didn't till it was too late.

Mind you, if May missed his chin and only collected as far up as his upper chest, the players chin would have gone forward initially, then back. If he struck the chin at all the head would have gone back straight away. judge for yourselves

But "Berry walked off the ground unassisted and was not concussedSo how is it 'medium impact'?  Must appeal on that alone!!

Spot on.  If it's medium impact then you would expect him to have some sort of concussion, blood nose etc.  He didn't.  He walked off the ground and, being a JLT game, kept him off as a precaution.  I'm hoping they challenge as I think they have a chance of winning it.

Seriously though, if that's medium impact to the head, then every single high tackle should be considered extreme contact and we would be left with no players.

I think the neck is considered high though isn't it? Mays shoulder goes right in under his chin into his neck. but if there's no injury to the neck could you say it was medium impact?

also we could possibly argue that what else was he supposed to do besides brace for contact, as you cant tackle a bloke without the ball.

So it’s careless and medium impact but Whateley stated on 360 it was judged as intentional and low. Good to see everyone in the media is on the same page.

time to lawyer up.......but not richter, please

Burnside maybe?? :-)

The MRP (or whatever the chumps choose to cal it this year) has gotten off to a great start consistency wise.

Still, Mumford is important to the AFL's pet GW$$$, May plays for Melbourne, the AFL's whipping boy.  Therein lies the difference.

Just for good measure:  Clayton Oliver ($1500- Striking Lyons) and Aaron vandenBerg ($3000 Stiking Neale and making contact with umpire).  

Clearly, wearing red and blue means incidents are judged more severely than others!!

It’s not appropriate to grade the severity based on the fact he took no further part in the game, because it’s a practice match.

he Didn’t have concussion either.

bit of a joke frankly.

Meanwhile, May's team-mate Aaron vandenBerg was slapped with two fines totalling $3000 ($2000 for striking Lachie Neale, which was seen as intentional conduct with low impact to the body, and $1000 for making careless contact with umpire David Harris in the final quarter).

And gun Melbourne midfielder Clayton Oliver was charged with striking Brisbane onballer Jarryd Lyons and can accept a $1500 fine.

my patriotic mfc heart tells me to challenge the bs 

my brain tells me that he won't get off and that instead he should just cop the ban.

However, even if this specific incident is not willing of a suspension, it does not bode well that he is doing this stupid stuff in a practice match let alone what might happen in the real deal. although he is new, he should still be leading by example.  

the labrador and o'mac can hold down the backline in the meantime.

Sigh.

I hate the stupid off the ball bumps and sniping, but this was a 20-times-a-game shephard that just happend to hit awkwardly.

I don't see how a near-stationary player turning their body to receive the contact of someone running right at them (even if the opponent was just running stupidly rather than intentionally) can be a suspension offence.

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.
