Sadly Durdin bumped a Cats player. Lucky to only get a week under the Hocking system.

He doesn’t have a Brownlow medal and not in consideration to win one this season.

The spirit of our game is dispirited tonight.

How can a player doing no more than shepherding a team mate and who does not leave the ground or raise an arm be offered a week while a player who deliberately raised both arms, leaves the ground and makes contact with the head of an opposition player get off. Degree of damage should not be part of the consideration on guilt, only on penalty if considered deliberate.

It is a great miscarriage of justice and a sad indictment of the depth to which the administration and adjudication of our great game has sunk. 

And the Rampe non-decision discussion is also troubling. The original intent of the 50m penalty was to prevent time wasting. How can time be wasted after the siren? Can you imagine the outcry and embarrassment if the result had been changed due to a innocuous action like this?

Games should be won, free kicks should be earned and 50m penalties should be awarded from a contest, not some silly little strict liability nonsense like this.

The shaking the post prohibition is meant to prevent players from deliberately and vigorously shaking the post to disturb the player shooting for goal (remember this goes back to the time of shorter, timber posts). In this case, the only umpire intervention should have been to reset the game. Pedantic, pathetic and puerile decisions should be avoided for the good of the game.

Gil, go. MC, go with him. You are both dragging our game down. Footy is our game, not yours.

I was thinking exactly the very same words,  'DubD'.

When Rohan ran straight into Durdin.  They met together, yes Durdin new where Rohan was but he was going in to block.  They collided.  Durdin was not running at Rohan...  but a line that put him in front of Rohan.

Rohan surely has to be more aware, than that.?

 

And Christian drops his dacks for Gill,  so Gaz gets off again.

I knew a guy who was connected, had a top lawyer through family in the Serbian Mafia.

He reckoned he had been let off for a 'first offense' driving about six times.

I wonder if Ablett's perfect record might be a little similar.

Judd's record was remarkably clean, two time brownlow and all that, considering he was actually a pretty dirty player all things considered.

Systematically going through each AFL Club, week by week, taking out, in head high tackles, with arms, fingers and elbows a young player, walking away unscathed.......remarkable

That’s ridiculous... Rohan is intent on stopping the player with the ball; that is what he is rightly focused on. It is the person trying to spoil that has to be aware... in this case it was a fair attempt at a bump and unfortunately their heads clashed. It should not have been a chargeable offence, I agree...  but I will never agree that Rohan was somehow at fault for not being aware enough.

He was aware,  'ht'.    He ran to be in front of Rohan, coming from the side.  They met side on, and Rohan had no awareness at all .  Fixated on the North player with the ball.  Durdin made no effort to get him high.  No intent at all

What,  is Durdin supposed to sit back and let Rohan do as he wants.     I don't think so.

Accidents, are going to happen frequently in this game.

..............................

Durdin possibly could have set himself to receive from the ball carrier...  But I don't think he did anything wrong at all.

 

Rohan has to be more aware, generally than that.  On a footy field.

So you’re putting the blame on Rohan? Ooookay.  I’m sure Rohan was aware of Durdin’s presence, but he should not have to back off as a result.   I already agreed that it was an unfortunate accident... I just think it’s ridiculous to lay the blame at Rohan’s feet.

No,  I'm not...  I'm putting No blame,  on either player.

One of the players had no awareness,  so was not as diligent as I would expect,  from an AFL footballer.

 

I think you should check the Vid again...  I am sure Rohans head did not turn to...  or away from Durdin's.

No case to answer, imv...   Simply an accident.   it happens.

No one to blame,  but plenty to learn from.  As we all do.

It’s a 360 degree game. Cross the white line then you have to be aware of what’s around you, if your within 5m of the ball. 

Just an unfortunate accident.

Wonder if this is going to be an ongoing thing with Ablett ,see how many times he can whack someone in the back of the head and get away with it?

Gil orchestrated this nicely. Didn't like the backlash from Ablett receiving a lighter sentence at the tribunal- so told the MRP not to charge him this time. Bloke makes head contact from a fair bump and gets a week- Make sense.

I had a squiz on the Norf big footy forum and of course they were [censored] off.

The mentioned another rule change this year I wasn't aware of. Even if it's an accidental head clash, you're liable for suspension. 

That's what has happened.

See this great article from Nathan Burke. 

https://thenewdaily.com.au/sport/afl/2018/12/14/afl-rules-changes-footy/

It almost seems like the best tactic now would be if you're involved in a head clash and you're opponent is dazed and needs help from the ground....

 Feign concussion and wobble off with them because you're gunna get a week at least.

If both players are concussed do both players get suspended? Wtf

Just imagine how this rule could play out at finals time.

Geez they're wrecking the game so quickly at the moment.

The obvious bias that we see in cases like this will remain a factor whilst humans are running the MRP.

When machine learning (AI) eventually takes over and uses algorithms we will see consistency. Never trust a human to do a computers job. While we’re at it, a 3rd party medical officer at each game to confirm diagnosis would be handy as well. 

Too much inconsistency in this post. Surely you want a robot rather than an independent human doctor to confirm the diagnosis.

No, I don't, given the technology, legislation and insurance isn't where it needs to be for this application of machine learning yet, but thanks for thinking and speaking for me on a topic you probably do not understand yourself.

well just to be a pedant, it's not really "machine learning" but "software written by humans" learning and thus has the same weaknesses embedded in it as it is based on human logic (albeit hopefully those of superior intellect)

Do you understand the term machine learning as a subset of artificial intelligence? 

I engineer systems of this nature for a living and what you just said makes absolutely zero sense.

I admit to not knowing the difference between AI and machine learning, and I don't care to. All I really want to say is that if you're located in Canberra and working in AI...please tell me you don't mind people wondering whether you're doing something to improve our system of Government.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.
