Anyone else think it is very poor for Adelaide Crows Director (and good mate of Dangerfield) Mark Ricutto to come out and support Danger over the welfare of one of his own very young players.  What me

The guy had gotten rid of the ball and was looking downfield. Danger came in from the side. He could have grabbed him, pushed him or done nothing as he didn't have the ball and wasn't expecting b

Where was Nibbler's "bad luck"? A tackle, a legal execution of a skill of the game ended with bad luck where the victim hit his head on the ground. No instead the Adelaide medical staff threw Nibbler

They can’t let their little darling off a week after changing the concussion rules to protect players because they’re concerned about player welfare.

Remember that May got a week for a bump and he wasn’t even moving. He has to get scrubbed.

Should have received weeks after the grand final for raising his forearm on Vlastuin.

They might give him a week  but Cats will appeal to try and have it overtuned.

As an aside, Danger (and family) have many influential mates in the media.

When deciding to bump, you have to keep all parts of the body away from the opponents head.

He rammed his head into the blokes nose and broke it, as well as causing concussion. 

Why are they saying it wasn't intentional or with malice? It was a "Brixton kiss".

Geelong are a ruthless team. They hate being beaten, will try anything to unsettle the other side.

No sympathy should be shown. Intentional and went in to hurt Kelly.

I can’t see how the MRP can do anything but make a statement early in the season. If they do, and he gets at least three, he will have been backed over by the karma bus after the three card trick that  he and the crows pulled to get Jack Trengove suspended for three. And he played the next week! Sorry, my personal dislike for the man showing.

Danger should get 4, but will get 3.

I actually want him to play against us though, one of my favorite moments in football was seeing Dangerflog trudge off the MCG with his head down after the 2018 Elimination final.  I can't stand the [censored].

Agree with much that's been said. Elected to bump (and bumped late), broke Kelly's nose and concussed him. That's 3 to 4 weeks (4 if making a statement).

It iritates me listening to Chris Scott trying to jawbone the tribunal... Dangerfield "did everything he could to protect Kelly"

Complete rubbish! He didn't slow at all dropped the shoulder angling his body towards Kelly and bumped him late - and was clear the hit would be late so could have slowed or pulled out

Its time the AFL made an example of a 'name' player like Danger and not just the ANB's of the world.

In both cases the concussion occurred when the player's head hit the ground, after the infringement.  In both cases the optics were very bad.  In both cases the infringement was sent directly to the Tribunal.  ANB got 4 weeks.  Appeal rejected. 

Commentators said at the time that if ANB was  'name' player he wouldn't get the same treatment. 

Concussion is taken far more seriously now than as it should be.  Time for the AFL to set down the law.

i can definitely see danger getting this downgraded to 1

nah .... he'll get off, and be given an award or a 'get out of gaol' card he can use later in the season.

It’s different rules for players like Danger. I’d be blown away if this doesn’t get thrown out.

All the more reason Danger should have the book thrown at him.  ANB got 4 weeks in a 17 week season.

Sorry Kev he DID NOT LEAD the tackle   with his head. That was the accidental part so no malice was intended.

Your comment re Brixton is entirely erroneous as many AFL  tackles and completely accidental collisions end up with head clashes with / without Blood/ etc or concussion.

As he Decided  to bump Like Williams of Carlton did and some damage  occurred then he has to defend the reason why he bumped as aggressively as he did ( That's Danger  always at top pace) 

The differences in my opinion with Willisms  is that he DID NOT NEED  to bump was late and with less Damage occurring but we want to cut that out of our  game.

With  the Danger bump it's legal in the play but if he scores any head damage he has to accept the consequences but no malice intended! 

And for that he may get 2/3 weeks but unlike Williams who did bump IMO with intent (malice) late and more "dangerously".

"MELBOURNE forward Alex Neal-Bullen has been rubbed out for four games, with the AFL Tribunal coming down hard on a sling tackle that concussed Adelaide youngster Will Hamill on Wednesday night.

Neal-Bullen pinned one of Hamill's arms while slinging him into the turf, with the first-year Crows player groggily coming from the field where he was unable to return to the game after suffering a concussion.

The incident was referred directly to the AFL Tribunal by the Match Review Officer, who deemed the impact of the tackle as 'severe' in a grading that normally determines a minimum penalty of a three-match ban."

So "severe" is a 3 week minimum.  ANB only pinned one arm and the player got up and walked off. Ask Kelly if he would have preferred the ANB tackle and result, to the one he suffered and we know the answer. As Lucifer's Hero said above ANB got 4 weeks in a 17 game season which equates to 5 games this year.

Dangerfield is an esteemed member of the AFL boys club. Can see him getting off the entire charge.

Even my cynical brain can't see him getting off entirely, but I'm prepared to bet he will get less than might be expected for many other players.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
