Sssooooo my assumption was that if you were suspended by the AFL tribunal you were not allowed to play footy... how silly was I. Dangerdiver played in the VFL, I’m glad he was able to get over his murder trial so quickly.

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

The AFL, after the #spud game, suspends a f l o g who deliberately knocked out an opponent,  and then allows him to play in a lesser comp days later... wow that is bush league at its finest. #@carowilson

No whispers yet from Geelong re appealing Rohan's 2 week suspension.

Gone to ground after last week's 4-day pro Danger media campaign failed spectacularly.

They should read the writing on the wall and know that any head high contact that results in concussion will be shown no mercy.  See Sam Reid's 2 match suspension for bump on Fye.

 

Edit:  Fox are reporting that Geelong have accepted Rohan's 2 week suspension.  Wise.

What a joke the AFL administration (or maladministration) have become.

Make up rules on the run, then allow a favourite to play whilst suspended.  (Remind me, what is SHockings team affiliation?)

High farce.

I believe this week was still in the pre-season for VFL so it doesn't get registered as an official game. Shouldn't be able to play after this week.

I don't think this is favouritism, just a little stroke of luck for Danger. 

EDIT Just to add, I don't agree with it. If you're suspended it should be suspended from playing any competitive footy.

Reid accepts his two week suspension reid-accepts-suspension

An interesting bit of info:  “Once the incident was classified as a bump rather than a brace, our advice was that there were limited options for us to challenge the suspension successfully".

As long as the MRP is consistent (yeah, I know, it is unlikely) clubs know the rules and less likely to challenge suspensions which result in concussion.

**** really? Why are they starting so late? Ok I’m flipping completely for a couple of reasons, first off it’s a really bad look for a player with a 3 game suspension still able to be out on a footy field, secondly it’s plainly unfair to the rest of the competition that players suspended now are given that opportunity to maintain match fitness while players suspended later have to sit on the sidelines. 

Rule needs to change, does not pass the sniff test.

no idea why they start so late

the vfl (or whatever they call is SE Aust) seems a shambles this year. not only start late but like other years will have bye rounds because of odd number teams. there are standalone and afl-linked clubs. How they will handle travel and covid with low budgets is anyone's guess. As well they are playing modified experimental rules (e.g. dynamic zones at ball-ups)

hardly a professional second tier suitable for developing afl list players

AFL under Gil and SHocking only seem interested in the 'elite' grade .... however, supporting at very least the 'seconds' is surely an integral part of maintaining quality at the top level.

How to tell if a particular league or competition is worthy of notice or attention: is there a clause in your employment contract linking bonuses to TV ratings of that competition? No = it's not worthy.

Did Caleb Daniel not get weeks for his pile drive  of a players head into the ground? Most dangerous tackle so far this year. If he escaped it is unbelievable.

Totally agree with you on the danger of his tackle, one of those classic cases where the fact the player wasn’t injured got him a pass. For me that’s more dangerous than any of the concussion related tackles I’ve seen including Nibbler’s. Could’ve broken the guys neck. 

As for Nev, that is one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen. Genuinely think we should consider appealing, I’m not sure there was much else he could do to mitigate the impact and he didn’t slam him into the ground. 

I mean Nev gets done for that, and Hawkins gets nothing. I’m not saying Hawkins should get suspended but if we’re looking at severity of incidents Nev’s was barely worth a free kick.

Keeping it personal for our Number 1. He gets 1 week for the practice match tackle in his debut year down at Casey. No one injured, significant debate about the MRP...... In May 2021, May hospitalised with a fractured eye socket to miss 4 weeks due to elbow contact, accidental or not. No 26 (with 7 citations in 5 years - thanks Titus), gets the benefit of the doubt! My god, Gill’s organisation is corrupt.....or have I missed something???

Just disgraceful. Typical AFL. Rules for some Rules for others.

Of those cited:  2 striking charges for a total of 2 weeks,  2 striking charges for total fines of $3500,  2 rough conduct & a tripping charge for total fines of $5000 and not one injury or blood split.

Hawkins throws a reckless elbow and fractures a players eye socket and not even a discussion. Might be a different story if he had hit him in the temple.   I wonder??

    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
