"Carlton coach David Teague has implemented a team-wide anti-taunting policy, as debate rages over on-field player behaviour across the AFL" 

John Ralph reports  “...Cain Liddle (CEO Carlton)...said ‘I think Teaguey’s one of those coaches who says toughness and courage is putting your head over the footy and getting it done for your mates, as opposed to banging into people when they’re not looking or slamming people’s heads into the ground". 

A nice little backhander for Dimmawit and Lynch. 

I wouldn't be surprised if he got a 'please explain' from management at the Tigers, after all someone there removed his insults to Ox from the interview on their website.

Tom Lynch, Richmond, has been charged with Striking Michael Hurley, Essendon, during the fourth quarter of the Round 13 match between Essendon and Richmond, played at TIO Stadium on Saturday August 22.The incident was classified as a direct referral to the Tribunal and the player cannot be offered an early plea.

Meanwhile, they have quietly swept under the carpet that Dahlhaus was only given a week for his sling tackle.

Spot the difference...

Main difference? No concussion, which was pure luck. This time the player put his hand out to protect the fall, Nibbler’s didn’t. 

I also thought ANB was done in by the medical staff saying he would be on reduced duties for at least a week before returning, but the injured player had battled concussion issues earlier in the year so of course they were going to do that.

Of course the other obvious difference is that it’s a name player who doesn’t play for Melbourne. The MRO/Tribunal is the most biased piece of ? involved with the AFL.

[censored] I’d be [censored] if I were nibbler. What is the difference in the action that makes its 3 weeks more??  - surely not the outcome if the player ended up more concussed than the other  , I thought they were supposed to judge the action or does that only apply or not apply if they want to get a star hawthorn or cats player off on a technicality?

the logical part of my brain says that this isn’t all comprised,  but it I’m really struggling atm to see how it’s not 

Lynch decision , we’ll I’m not surprised either

Posted this in the Non-MFC thread, Nibbler should take the AFL to court for loss of match payments:

This was what Gil said after Burgoyne got away with the first tackle this year:

AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan said the change would ensure the potential injury of a hazardous tackle would be taken into account by the match review officer when grading an incident.

“We want to be clear; protection of the head is our highest priority and we want all players at all levels and age groups to better understand that these tackles shouldn’t be part of our game.

“Dangerous tackles have the potential to cause head injuries, and it is essential that this is taken into account when assessing an incident under the AFL Tribunal guidelines.”

What an absolute load of bull?!

Corrupt is the only word

Lynch cleared by the tribunal for his throat punch on Hurley. Another fine by the MRP would have seen him suspended under the three fines and you’re suspended policy. Was he sent directly to the tribunal to be cleared and avoid another fine, therefore avoiding a mandatory suspension?

I'm still wondering how he wasn't already suspended.

He had the fine from earlier in the season after pushing Witherdens head in the ground, then got two $1000 fines for striking Witts & Collins.

Witherden, Witts, Collins = three.

Did they only count the latter two as a single offence 'cause it happened in the same game? ?

It was an open hand. Move on.

Lynch is now a proven recidivist so will get his come uppance eventually. 

And Dimma is wrecking the Tiges brand of inclusion and enlightenment carefully nutured by Gale, , Paggy O'neil and the Board by his reversion to type when under pressure.

This is a bloody joke. The MFC should be taking this up with the AFL demanding an answer as to why there is such a disparity in the penalties. 

Should ........ won’t.

You missed my point, it wasn’t that he didn’t get suspended by the tribunal for that incident. 

Got it and well made.

Was it a convoluted method by Christian to avoid the suspension but appear to be 'doing something', which was likely to be challenged by the tiges and redacted following a successful appeal due to to type of action. Maybe?

A lifetime's experience tells me that whenever you have a choice between a conspiracy or a [censored]-up, choose the [censored]-up every time.

I don't think the AFL is clever enough to organise this conspiracy. It is, however, perfectly capable of this type of mistake.

(As an aside, lots of AFL staff got the chop yesterday. I wonder how close Steven Hocking was to the Gil-otine blade? Seems to me there's a lot in his job description that isn't going the way that it should.)

 

Edit: for "censored" read "rooster", or at least the derivative or nickname often used inoffensively as in "Coq au Vin" (Let's see if that passes the officious auto-censor. I had used a zero instead of the letter o, but that didn't work)

Someone needs to actually have a serious word to the Tigers. We've seen the stuff happening onfield with staging and punching etc, then we had Dimma's poor comments about Schwarz (particularly poor given it's the same club involved with Shane Tuck, Danny Frawley and Reece McKenzie) and now their CEO has made an appalling comment comparing Lynch's treatment to that of serial killer Ivan Milat.

Imagine being the family of one of Milat's victims and being reminded of the horror and tragedy because an [censored] CEO thought his undisciplined forward was being victimized like a murderer. Absolutely pathetic coming from someone spoken about as a potential replacement for Gil.

Read here:

“Tom plays it pretty hard and he cops a lot, he plays a physical brand of footy, but the scrutiny and the attention he’s received, it’s outrageous,” he told 3AW Sportsday.

“I can’t believe it, it’s like he’s Ivan Milat,” Gale quipped, referring to the serial killer who took the lives of seven backpackers in the early 1990s.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
