Ablett wins appeal. System is broken

Recommended Posts

Haven't seen the incident but let me paraphrase the verdict, save everyone a heap of time. 

" low impact, not intentional, impact caused by the Suns player ( who will get a week for it if he apologises to Gary and says 3 Hail Marys). Alleged impact was in play and caused no harm to Suns player.

No further correspondence will be entered into. Leave Gary alone !!!!! He's just a human being like anyone else. 

Amen

He will have to go for that 

Miles hammed up the impact, but it's still a fist to the head.

This is what happens when you let guys off the hook just because they're a "champion of the game" and a "ball player". They think they can do whatever they want. He needs to be suspended, like he should have been the last 2 times he hit blokes in the head. Everyone should be be judged under the rules the same, no bending the rules just for the elite.

He actually has a go with his left first and then gets him with the right. Obviously, the impact was not severe, but the action is undoubtedly there.

Ablett seems very confident he has nothing to worry about. Post game he claimed it was just clumsy and the undisciplined act only deserved a free kick. Wonder if Mr MRO heard that and gave it a nod of approval.

Aw, gee, do we really want to see the best players on the sidelines just because they deliberately break the rules of the game? This could cost someone a Brownlow! Do we really want to see a star player miss out on a Brownlow just because they repeatedly show they can't conform to the rules? What's the game coming to?

Well thats Gaz.

The AFL helped him get back to the Cattery,  just as they helped him get to QLD,  a$ a Millionaire.

... and they are still helping him every step.

 

Well AFL howz about a little help with us Dees,  finding another home Base and facilities ?... within Melbourne,  that is Gill.

Trump is rightly approaching impeachment. Gill is wrongly fiddling the books, rules, interpretations, outcomes of decisions and totally adjusting any concept of an even and honourable field of play - with no impeachment.

He must be the worse example of those who sit in the Chair, and at a time in the course of the game when it is possibly most important and necessary to have integrity than ever.

When big business see $$$$$$,  morals go out th highest window...  and those important things Lose.  Morals,  Environment,  Social Health.

Today there are suggestions the AFL is dealing in double standards to star players, and these players are receiving preferential treatment from the MRO and the tribunal. Ha ha ha ha ha. Thank you Paul Johnson and Andrew McMurtry of news.com.au for your insight. What gave you that idea?  The school of stating the bleeding obvious also thanks you.

Geelong will save the $10,000 by not challenging; they were going to rest him anyway.

Nonetheless, its good he was suspended, he was acting like Mr Teflon by throwing 'clumsy' punches every other week, then pouting to escape penalty.

punched him in the jaw ffs

Low impact and to be fair the GC seemed to channel Oliver's flop from last year. I feel like if that had been the first offence in the run he would've got away with it, I still feel like the reprimand system (not so much the left over points) wasn't the worst idea, two reprimands equals a suspension. He should've been gone after his second elbow. 

This one he had to go, I think a week was right.

He should have been on suspended penalties for the past two recent incidents... so now he could be serving 3 or 4 matches concurrently, for this latest uncharacteristic fail.

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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

    COOKED by The Oracle

    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 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.

    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

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    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
