Crowd incident - Hawks Dees

Recommended Posts

Anyone that finds it necessary to engage in physical and/or verbal violence at a football game is somewhat intellectually challenged or disabled IMO. I can’t tell much difference between the two.

For those advocating that the Hawthorn supporter got what he deserved I say an intelligent human would assess the situation and walk away knowing that there is no benefit in escalating the situation.

An intelligent person would not have been anywhere near that situation in the first place.

Are you suggesting that an intelligent person would not barrack for Melbourne? You may have a point.

Touche. My wife questions my intelligence constantly.

I make up for it by keeping the kitchen clear and clean and cooking all the meals. She settles for that sometimes.

When I was a younger man a Spanish floor cleaner at the State Bank told me that with women you never win.

At the risk of being labelled a misogynist, I am beginning to see he may have had a point.

I always feel uncomfortable sitting among supporters who are drinking, something which is hard to avoid when attending our replacement games because of the large crowds. Alcohol free areas should be increased at the ground, no matter how unpopular that move may be. Alcohol leads to these unsavoury and dangerous incidents. Going to the football should be about watching the football and supporting your team, not drinking all day and becoming agitated and turning violent because of opposition supporters . If someone is being unsociable report them to security. There is a number which is advertised on the scoreboard to report unacceptable behaviour, or find the nearest ground staff or security worker to deal with the problem. They are there to do a job, which is security. Make them earn their pay. Violence is not the answer, even if provoked. 

On another note, this year I have noticed a slip in the keeping out of opposition supporters in our reserved seats. The workers at the gates seem to be more relaxed in their observation of this. We have had to call them to move on various opp. supporters who were causing trouble in our area, and some even waltzed in carrying beers and sat down in what was obviously a Melbourne only area. The attendants used to be much more strict. Even when I left to go to the ladies I was asked to show my membership card when I wanted to return to my seat. Now it seems fairly slack. This is disappointing, because this can lead to confrontations. Everyone needs to lift their standards in their jobs. In the first quarters of games, two security guards do a little patrol of our area and then you never see them again. In past years they would pass through frequently. Perhaps there has been cutbacks. If so, this is an area where there should not be.

Alcohol is the only thing that got me through the last ten years of watching melbourne.

Only a fool would try to win. 

"I am sorry you were right." Works a treat, regardless of the facts.

A pyrrhic victory is not worth it.

Never said anything about trying to win. Lost that urge in 1989 when I met her. It's just that, Yes, dear, doesn't cut it either. Please remember, my wife IS Polish.

Get what your saying, but it would appear there is too much separation between incidents for that to be relevant. Even with the Hawk's guy being the aggressor in this, the video clearly shows him walking in the other the direction and the Melbourne supporter catching up with him to punch him. Probably no chance of a self-defense argument in this context. 

Old mate deserved a punch in the head from all reports and I have little problem with it given the Melbourne bloke squared up to his face, gave him an opportunity to defend himself and didn't continue after the guy went down. That's about as civilized as a fight gets these days. 

I was going down the lines of Provocation.

Came across a food stand at Eumundie Market  a few years ago. Somebody walked past with a dish that looked like Bigosz, a sauerkraut and sausage dish, one of the proofs there is a God, and it turned out there was actually a food stand run by a Polish Couple in their late fifties. I told the woman my wife was Polish and she produced a Tea Shirt - Pray for me, My wife is Polish. There is a male version as well. Another time at the Europa Cake shop in Carnegie I told the Polish woman the same thing. She replied, Polish girls keep you on your toes. I replied, Unfortunately I'm not a ballerina.

I like that Demonland allows Melbourne supporters to express their views (apart from extremist, defamatory and derogatory comments). But this thread is the most aggressive I've ever seen. I'm both amazed and dismayed by some of the arguments. Mostly, though, I'm disappointed that anyone can defend a man punching another person. It doesn't matter whether that person was intellectually disabled or not. It doesn't matter that the Hawks supporter caused the attacker to lose his beer. What does matter is that a single punch can kill or maim someone for life.

Everyone, do yourselves a favour and have a look at the James Macready-Bryan Foundation. I don't know him or anyone around him, but his story should remind us all of what's really important. And while you're there, think about making a donation.

Either way, your post is quite confusing. You've said he has a reasonable defence for the charges, but also stated he won't be charged at all. Provocation is a partial defence that will be considered by the courts with respect to sentencing, not by the police in determining whether a criminal offence has occurred.

Just say what you think... do you think it is OK, to slap another person to the face?

yes or no ?

No, I don’t think that’s okay either, but obviously there’s a much lower chance of doing serious damage with an open handed slap. Like anything, there are degrees of seriousness in assaults. I’ve never heard one anyone being killed by a one-slap, have you?

It's not necessarily the result of the punch or slap in itself. A powerful slap can easily knock someone to the ground, and the damage in these cases is often caused by the impact of the head hitting the ground, and not the strike itself.

Yeah, I know that. Although I’d still say it’s much less likely on balance of probabilities to skittle someone with a slap. I was just trying to answer DV8’s seemingly inane question.

So if you guys over there arrest a suspect for common assault (or whatever the equivalent is) and in interview they bring up provocation would you consider it when deciding to charge or always charge and let the courts decide? You’ve sort of answered it above but just want to clarify. Over here we’d consider it when deciding whether or not charge. I suppose that’s where some of the confusion came from.

I guess I'll preface this by saying (lest I offend anyone) that it is never ok to hit someone in the head in retaliation unless in self defence. However something doesn't sit right with the quoted interview (minutes?) after the incident and the terrified lad the next day.

Provacation won't come into it when deciding if charges are laid. It wasn't really self defence given the victim was walking away..

I'm curious whether the victim will in fact sign up to a statement however, because of the lead up events.

The "offender" could well request unlawful assault charges be laid for the beer slap...it "could" be argued the beer slap itself was done intending fear...

Disabled... very difficult to tell he's disabled,  if your saw him at the footy being interviewed.  especially if he'd been drinking.?

Don't condone what has taken place. Judging by all the attention he's getting, this might have been a publicity stunt for more viewership for Arsenal FanTV. Sorry i mean Hawks FanTV.

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar
