So its a free shot on Gawn every single week. They cannon into his back punch him in the back of the head and pile on to him when on the ground.   PLay on. No frees, no fines.   BS

If nothing happens to Rampe that’s a disgrace. Although Fritsch was allowed to be hit behind play so it wouldn’t surprise me.

Baby Oil is all well and good behind closed doors, but it has no place on the football field.

Yeah they showed it on the coverage his arm slipped up buddy's oiled up biceps and hit him in the the head.

Rampe get anything for this incident? extremely dangerous https://www.news.com.au/sport/afl/dane-rampes-dangerous-act-against-melbourne-caught-on-camera/news-story/6596bb7545b4d50ff8453b89c9f03191

Laughable that was pure luck that saved a potential spinal injury. Shocking yet unlike May nothing. Extremely dangerous

Footage at the start of the game shows Bud getting oiled up like no tomorrow. 
No wonder the arm hits the upper bicep and slides up. 
Id challenge that if I was May.

Yep apparently throwing Langdon on his head is play on.

What a joke. So 3k but 2 for early guilty plea. So if he pleads not guilty is there a chance he can get off and only risk 1k?

What about Hawkins work?

They mentioned it three times on the tv coverage after it happened. I knew he'd at least get a fine because that's the way the tribunal works. The commentators cite the players.

Just ridiculous. There was nothing in it.

How much did Hawkins pay for breaking May's eye socket?

I was asking if may doesn't accept the fine and challenges, but is still found guilty, does he only risk the original 3k fine or do we have to pay another 10 like for the fritch challenge? Hawkins incident is irrelevant to that question I would think.

Saw it and buddy went down like a lead balloon trying to milk a free which didn’t come. 
 

I have been hit harder by my 8 yo and stayed upright. 
 

Absolute joke of a charge.

Sydney have some absolute Oscar winning players in their side. So many dropped shoulders.

Even as a top side, the opponents "make us earn it", with little protection from the umps.

Teams seem to go after us physically, not accidentally, like May's.  

I say, good, use that to inspire us, "go to war", "them and us", "no prisoners", get angry and hostile.

We have become the hunted and need to flex our muscles. 

Though our best players need some protection. Oliver, Gawn, Langdon, Tmac, wished they try it with Tracc, May or even Sparrow or Sparg's, our bigger bodied players or those that are a bit hot headed. See what happens to the snipers. We have to lose the mantle of a soft team. Imagine an Essedon or Richmond team taking it like us? I just can't. Sometimes being professional isn't worth it, unless the umpires get active.

Some teams will really try and rattle us. We need to be prepared. 

Thoughts of having AVB as the med sub and get him on to fix some up,(joking). Aaron will get his chance, through, injuries and his form.

C'mon MFC admin, become whingers on Monday.

It was May...

I'm surprised he didn't get at least 4 weeks for that.

I mean he got a week in preseason for looking at someone the wrong way.

The commentators did not go on and on about the Rampe outrage - genuine potential spinal or head injury - nor the Fritsch behind the play hit, so Christian given his limited mental acuity wouldn’t even look at it.

He relies on the media to tell him who to cite.

This dead-set infuriates me. May can't look sideways at someone without copping MRO scrutiny. Buddy was oiled up more than the Alaskan coast post-Exxon Valdez. Initial contact was to the arm, not high. Should be treated similarly to when players duck to milk a high tackle - play on!

Maybe for the players own good it's time to ban oil on the arms...

You can see May's arm slip up on the oil.

How often do we see an oiled up Selwood slip a tackle, he puts gallons of that stuff on before and during a game.

For someone who doesn't have a rock hard scone like him it's dangerous letting the tackle slip up to the neck or higher.

Duty of care may well see oil go, at least on the arms and shoulders.

    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. Were th

    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
