AFL will use the “we didn’t get the medical report back in time” excuse again

It's really a disgrace how they bend over backwards not to suspend big name players. It's beyond time where the media should be calling them out on it.

"I've seen the (Hawkins) incident, what I will say is what I think in recent weeks in the AFL is moving away from suspensions.

"I agree with the AFL's approach, you want the best players out there playing so I'd hope there's consistency in that."

Seems that way doesn’t it.

Dangerfield is absolutely trying to influence the AFL.  UNBELIEVABLE ARROGANCE. 

Hawkins deserves 2 weeks minimum.  Head high. Off the ball. Medium impact.

I am overseas at the moment and planned my trip around being home for the GF and watching the Dees win a flag - seriously what was I thinking?😭

Clearly, you're stark raving mad like all the rest of us.

Seriously, if you weren't, we'd think there was something wrong with you.

An aside

just turned on to watch the Storm who play in an hour and caught the last half of the NRL women's match.

Excellent quality. As a sport it it appears to be far more transferable quality wise between the genders.

1 week.  Doubtless will win no-risk appeal.  Staged.

In fairness to my mental state, my husband is a Pies supporter so there was no chance I can extend my holiday even if I want to. I have told him he can go home and I will linger in Italy a bit longer but he was not too impressed with that idea 😀🇮🇹

EAD Hawkins. You might kick lots of goals but you’ve always been a staging and sniping piece of [censored]. 

 

Clearly I’m a fan.

That would explain a fair bit. What a double whammy. I have no such excuse, being the only football follower in my family. Locked in a prison of my own making. Which may be worse? Even contemplating that could drive me mad(der).

Hawkins should have been rubbed out for 4 to 6 with his record of brutality and shifty behind play incidents and i wouldn't have him at MFC either. This game was set up for Sooky and his team to win no matter what,  with the phone calls flying between the AFL and the cats saying things like.........how much off ball interference can we get away with, "Christo" and his (ex cat) mate, and then along comes dopey..

 A pathetic umpiring performance wher the maggots had been instructed to not allow a Team to proceed further that had dared to make a laughing stock of the AFL.......no votes from me!!!!

Graded as intentional, high contact with a low impact 

If it were a boxing match it would be a KO punch. Schofield was down for at least the full 10 count. Low impact is a joke.

I wonder if the lions got into the finals a year to early. So far they aren't really handling the start gws have got off to and when you see Hodgey kicking it out on the full it's not a great start. 

I just wonder if the giants if they get through next week have the guts to apply the same tactics against the pies.

Dangerfield is happy for one of the ‘best’ players to clean him up.  So Lachie Neale is welcome to punch him in the face, without any recriminations.

Best quarter of footy I’ve watched all year. Had it all. Cameron is a dead set champ playing through the pain. I though he had busted his arm. Carn the bears!

Fabulous quarter... there's a few GWS players who don't like to work hard the other way too often.  Hard working teams who can maintain possession  reasonably well will find them out

No quarter given by either team....both playing socially unfriendly footy.

Robertson's little back slap on Whitfield right in the small of the back where he'd just taken a hit to put him down again.  Classic

    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. 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

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    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
