No tribunal was ever finding Hawkins guilty. Too much doubt.

Daniel easily worth a week. Jetta maybe not a fine but whatever.

Cunnington the same as Zac Williams. A week for stupidity.

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

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???

Don't forget his antics last year.  Got a week suspension for a deliberate elbow to the head of an opponent, appealed and had it downgraded to careless and a fine.  Played the next match, elbowed someone in the head and got a week again. 

Once again the AFL is demonstrating to the world that they have NFI how to run a league and their self-proclaimed integrity as an absolute joke.

Mitch Lewis suspended for a week so won't line up against us on Sunday.

He’ll likely get it downgraded to a fine but it’s a clearly unnecessary bump and from the other angle it’s high.

Making it a week is the only way to stamp it out.

There would be no doubt if a no-name Melbourne player like Trengove or ANB were involved.

How strange that Hawkins doesn't get cited for his errant elbow yesterday that caused major damage to his opponent's face but gets 3 separate suspensions for puny jumper punches causing no damage whatsoever. And Dangerfield doesn't get cited for his errant elbow in last year's GF but instead gets 3 weeks suspension for an accidental clash of heads.

Perhaps errant elbowing has become a thing again in footy.

It’s the most unnatural arm movement as if he was searching for him.

And I thought the AFL regarded the head now as sacrosanct? If Dangerfield gets 3 weeks for an accidental clash of heads, Hawkins should get 3 weeks for an accidental elbow to someone's head

Did you see the incident? I haven’t, just wondering if they’ll appeal 

no Lewis or Gunston - we might bring in a Hibberd this week for May. No need for another tall perhaps?

Probably jinxing us but it is really nice to see that we’ve been tough but disciplined so we aren’t seeing our players face tribunal scrutiny.

It’s because in the Danger one, he chose to bump so you take the consequences. 

there is zero basis for Hawkins getting suspended. It was a pure accident

Exactly.

It was never going to fly as the expert panel on channel 7 had already deemed it unanimously as accidental.

I wouldn't say it was careless as he was quite careful on swinging that Elbow back with the intention to connect.

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??

 

Is anyone really surprised.

I didn't see the incident.  From what Clarkson said last night I doubt they will appeal.

Anyone reckon Mitch Brown could be in trouble for his "dangerous tackle" in the first quarter? Was a free kick and looked as though Duryea's head made contact with the ground.

    THE EYE OF THE STORM by Whispering Jack

    When Melbourne monstered Richmond a few weeks back on the MCG thereby registering their sixth win on the trot, the block of games to follow looked highly appealing. After a stirring victory in difficult conditions over the reigning premier, the games to come were against a quartet of low achievers from 2020. North were winless, the Swans were the early high flyers now falling into a slump, Carlton couldn’t take a trick and the Crows had just lost an unloseable game to the Hawks in Launceston. Ev

    DUCKING A PLUCKING by George On The Outer

    With seven consecutive wins for 2021 behind it, and not having played well in its previous game,  Melbourne was ripe for the picking (or plucking) by the Sydney Swans. However, in the end, it was the Ducks who found themselves plucked by a Demons side that continues its relentless successful roll for the Season. Or did the Demons narrowly duck a plucking themselves? Sydney brought its usual game style to the M.C.G.  Get in front and then shut down the game, scrap and refuse to mov

    THE MERRY, MERRY MONTH OF MAY by The Oracle

    The month of May was a little more than halfway into its second day when the news came. Melbourne was on top of the AFL table for the first time since Round 3, 2005. As usual with the Demons, there was no time for celebration. They had just lost tough nut Jack Viney with yet another soft spot in his foot, Adam Tomlinson’s year was in ruins with what was subsequently confirmed as an ACL and Bayley Fritsch’s careless but unintentional fend off on North’s Tom Powell was about to see him charge

    BLUNDSTONE BOOTED by George on the Outer

    The tough Aussie Blundstone boot is made for true blue collar workers, and so it was at this aptly named stadium in Hobart, that the Demons were made to work their hardest for their seventh consecutive win of the season. From the outset, North Melbourne put scoreboard pressure on Melbourne with two majors at an early stage in the first quarter. The Demons fought back and temporarily had the lead but the Kangaroos responded to lead by five points at quarter time. This was not what the public

    UNTROUBLED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were untroubled for the third week in a row as they went on a four quarter romp at Marvel Stadium to record a 107 point win over an undermanned bottom-of-the-ladder North Melbourne VFL. The scoring riot began about ten minutes into the game when Sam Weideman notched the first of four goals that could easily have been six or seven but for some uncharacteristic misses from close in. The Demon forward, spurned so far by the club’s AFL selectors, demonstrated a strong work rate

    I’LL GIVE THEE A WIND by Whispering Jack

    The football world was reminded this week about the last time Melbourne opened a season with six wins or more in a row. That was in 1965 when Sir Robert Gordon Menzies was Prime Minister of Australia and the country was fighting a war in faraway Vietnam. It was before Jack Viney’s father, Todd, was born — a time when the game was played almost exclusively on Saturdays and when Demon fans used to wake up in the morning mostly safe in the knowledge that there was not even the remotest possibility

    MAKING HISTORY by KC from Casey

    This was a weekend of history with Anzac Day commemorations throughout the community including the sporting world including the VFL. For the Casey Demons, which originated from the Springvale Football Club founded in 1903, it was a double celebration as Saturday’s game was a celebration of the club’s 750th VFA/VFL match since admission to the competition in 1982. Springvale became the Casey Scorpions in 2005 when the club moved to Casey Fields and since 2017 has been known as the Casey Demo

    THE TWO ELEPHANTS NOT IN THE ROOM by WJ

    After another slow start when they conceded 2.3.15 to nothing in a handball-happy opening 15 minutes, the unflappable Demons delivered a warning sign of major proportions to the rest of the competition with their 34-point win over the reigning premiers in their Anzac Eve contest. And what made things even more ominous is that they did it without two elephants in the room - key forwards Ben Brown and Sam Weideman who have been amassing goals at VFL level while coming back from injuries that

    A TALE OF TWO HEROES by Whispering Jack

    On Saturday night at the ANZAC Day Eve game between Melbourne and Richmond, we will give recognition to the achievements of two great Demons who made significant contributions to the Melbourne Football Club over substantially different time spans. The first is the late Frank V “Checker” Hughes who was born on 26 February 1894 and began his career as a Richmond player in 1915. Shortly after, Hughes was called on to serve his country when he went to war during WW1. He returned from battle and

    TURNING POINT by The Oracle

    It wasn’t that long ago when Melbourne held sway in its Anzac Eve matches against Richmond. The early versions of the blockbuster saw the Demons home by 32 points in 2015 and 33 in 2016. When the turning point came it was dramatic and sudden. The Demons might have been on an upward curve in 2017 under new coach Simon Goodwin but so were the Tigers who had finished a disappointing 13th in 2016. When the teams met in Round 5 under lights in front of a crowd of 85,657 — the highest ever betwee

    STARTING OVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons made a successful return to the playing field with a 51 point away from home victory over the Box Hill Hawks. The visitors were starting over after a hiatus of almost 20 months and fielded a strong team of 14 AFL listed players against an undermanned opponent. And they showed from the first bounce that they were out to make up for lost time with an aggressive opening that saw them off to 21 point lead at the first break with thanks to a dominant midfield and two key forward

    NUTCRACKER by George on the Outer

    Q: How to crack a tough nut? A: Use a bigger hammer! It took Melbourne until the last quarter to crack the Hawthorn nut. These days, the Hawks under Alastair Clarkson simply don’t have the talent that served them so well in years gone, and they have to rely on not losing rather than trying to win.   The result is that the match became a slog for three quarters, as Hawthorn clogged the game, flooded heavily and simply stopped the Melbourne run.  Even in the first quarter the signs
