That vision is even more damning!! Should get 8 weeks He instigated the contact. Actually make it 10 weeks 

Yes, that vision is damning!

The side-on also shows acceleration, drive off right leg to enact a slight change in direction, and feet actually off the ground even though body remains low  -  the more I look at it, the more it's a deliberate spear on an unprepared player without the ball

We cross now to Tribunal Chairman David Jones relaxing in a green chesterfield chair in his wood-panelled study, drumming his fingertips together and cackling softly to himself.

Watch Dangerfield get 2 weeks for this and then May next week will get 4 weeks for the same if not lesser bump. The tribunal have been put on the spot with this; Danger chose to bump, the player is badly concussed, but he's a star of the game and is seen as a "good guy". 3 weeks is right, 4 weeks sends a message, I can really see the tribunal rolling over for 2 weeks.

I think it is a bigger picture than suspension,

If Kelly develops any brain injury further down the track, he should be able to sue both the AFL and Danger.

Make the head sacrosanct. 

Middle and older ages are great to live. He shouldn't be denied that because of the actions of Danger.

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 under the bus.

That's disgraceful from Ricciuto and a clear star player bias.

So honestly folks - if it was Oliver in Dangers shows, how long would you think he should get for This? an accidental head clash  

if the shoulder hits the head, throw the book but this is a head clash. I think zero weeks or 1 week max.

So in summary:

  • Had 10 steps to assess options (2 - 3 seconds)
  • Chose not to tackle
  • Chose not to smother
  • Chose to bump
  • Picked up speed to reach Kelly
  • Contact was late
  • No evidence of self-defence

It is a compelling case to find him guilty.

There is no evidence to get him off - except for the AFL's 'secret herbs and spices. 

But isn’t it legal to bump a player shoulder to shoulder? Forgive my naivity here, not my wheelhouse.
So he is not guilty of the act, just the outcome as they incidentally clashed heads?

He had no option to tackle - the ball was gone. And no option to smother - the video shrinks distance down, he wasn't realistically going to smother a handball. 

Nor did he have 10 steps to decide what to do. He's corralling and protecting the corridor, likely thinking a tackle is the option until Kelly goes to handball, in which case at the last minute he bumps to stop Kelly's run.

It's a late bump that's unfortunate and shouldn't have been so forceful. If you're going to check a guys run you can do that just by blocking the space in front of them. 

He bumped and it went wrong, that's about all that the video shows. There doesn't need to be extra sinister motivations added to it.

He charged Kelly like bull to a red rag. To the letter of the law still worth 3 weeks suspension despite your opinion.

Pretty sure that says it all. Oliver wouldn't be in his shoes, Oliver is a tackler and a fierce one like Viney. I've seen many more instances where Danger tries to line someone up for the big bump that leaves the oppo player "dazzed".

If they say severe impact it's 3. Personally I'd call it high impact and leave severe for more forceful collisions and worse injuries, but whatever. 

I don't think he charged Kelly. He's running slower than the Adelaide player who receives the handball. He really is surveying his options until the last couple of steps.

Every coach in the league would want their players to do exactly what Danger did until the last 2 steps. Which is where he should've slowed up, followed the ball and if possibly checked Kelly's run rather than barreling in to him.

Making it sound like it's the 1980's and he's running off the square doesn't help anyone. It's irrelevant to the suspension because bumps are never graded as intentional. But the idea that Dangerfield is some kind of sniper is crazy.

No, some people are missing the fact that the Crows player had handpassed the ball. Dangerfield was late, the ball was gone. If he still had the ball at impact it becomes a different argument. He was concentrating on giving off a handball and was open when Dangerfield cleaned him up. Late. He has to take responsibility for that. It moves from accidental, towards it being a vicious act. You can argue that its not in Dangerfields nature but he chose to do it and didn't execute within the rules of the game. He has to take responsibility for that.

He had no legal option full stop, he was getting to the play late and so whatever action he was doing it was going to cause a free-kick. I don't think there was malic in it but it wasn't a slow-down bracing contact, it was a bump which he chose to enact. The AFL made a ruling years ago that choosing to bump and causing head high contact regardless of it being intentional or malicious was going to earn you weeks on the sidelines, and they have a long history (with us) of punishing the result not the intent.

If they are to be consistent then he should be gone to 2-3 weeks. Perhaps his good record gives him the benefit of a week, but to make it clear to the competition that they're taking concussions seriously I think 3 weeks is right.

Sloane, another Dangerfield great mate but also Kelly's captain is saying Kelly "... ran into a guy with a rock-hard melon. I've ran into that bloke, Danger, a couple of times and you certainly do come off second best normally."

I wouldn't be too happy if my captain said it was my fault after the injuries I sustained.  It is salt into the wound after Ricutto yesterday said it was 'bad luck'.

Isn't Kelly's father Craig Kelly, a senior AFL Player Manager.  I wounder if we will hear from him. 

tbh I find it quite unsavoury that Ricutto and Sloane are batting for a mate rather than one of their own kids.  imv if they can't support Kelly they should  keep quiet and stay out of it.

They would have been asked what they think about Danger potentially getting three plus weeks for an accidental head clash and are giving their opinion. An opinion I share.

It doesn’t mean they don’t care for their teammate

You tackle or corral using your arms, not your arm tucked in for a shoulder charge.

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 blind side contact.

Danger chose to bump. The one thing he shouldn't have done.

He broke the guys nose and knocked him out.

Graded as severe, as that is the only one available with those injuries.

Yes, the head bump was probably accidental, however that is exactly what they are trying to stop.

Danger knows that better than any other player,  as President of the Player's association.

They have been told countless times, bump and you are responsible for any head knock, deliberate or accidental.

No excuse whatsoever under the rules.

All hell will break out if he doesn't get the right whack, minimum 3 weeks.

ANB got 4 weeks in a 17 game season for swinging a player to the ground with one arm held. That player got concussed mildly.

This is a far worse injury, from an act that the AFL is telling players to avoid if possible.

Watch 60 minutes last sunday on CTE deaths and suicides.

Honestly DS I shudder to think what type of impact you think is necessary to rate as severe.

I’ve never seen a player do so many media spots declaring his innocence or have so many public opportunities provided for him to plead his case.

Talk about a rigged system. Should give him an extra week for actively trying to subvert the conversation prior to the hearing.

Might be a decent player on the park but total FIGJAM [censored] off it

Thanks for your perspective 

sounds from the above that the bump is gone from the game. Who would bump when unintended consequences can get you multiple weeks even when the bump is executed correctly

    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

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.

    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.

    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,

    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.
