May charged and fined for striking Buddy?

If it's the incident i'm thinking of his Elbow bounced off Buddys arm and clipped him high very lightly and Buddy took a huge dive trying to get a free coz that's the only way he was gunna get a kick. 

On Buddy. i thought the umpiring was disgraceful, i recall several times where took players on, dropped it and no call made, including 2 in the same play, and yet Petracca copped red hot calls at every opportunity. 

I couldn't believe it. Twice in the same play he blatantly dropped the ball and play on was called.

FMD! Hadn't heard this news til I opened this thread.

I clearly recall the incident from the match as some comment was made at the time and it was replayed.

May's forearm connected Buddy on the bicep and then slid up to give him a light cuff on the chin. Buddy then played for the free.

Absolutely zero in it. I cannot believe he has been cited let alone fined. Simple comparison with Hawkins hit on May shows the stupidity and inconsistency with the review process.

The system is seriously flawed.

If I'm a dunce then why was Fritsch's appeal successful and why will Melbourne accept May's sanction?

Good fellow, I suggest you focus less on conspiracy theories and calling people names and more on getting better at predicting outcomes based on logic and reason.

Petracca pushed the NM player into Fritsch.

I guess you're still a dunce ...😜

The May decision is exasperating to say the least! 

Enough said ........ if I express my unreserved views about the MRC, I'll earn a (Demonland) sanction for myself.

Just smile and wave boys. Smile and wave. Come Grand Final day we release the demons with no send off rule and who gives a stuff if there are suspensions into next year. Premiers 2021. It’s been done in the past and we have been the victims.

Exactly, it's the inconsistency that makes it all bs.

This will count against May if he is cited (by football commentators) again this season I would assume.

I doubt it's worth pursuing an appeal but I can just see another borderline widely talked about infringment at the end of the season against May coming back to haunt us.

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

Very good point. Players should enter and remain free of any greasy lubricants which are misused as an aid to enable slipping out of tackles. Selwood does it all the time using his drippy greasy arms to slip tackles up over his shoulders. Not much different to a cricketer applying Teflon on their bats to hide small nicks. It’s a form of cheating. Surprised the AFL is not cracking down on the practice. Umpires should be telling offending players to dry towel the oil off and pay a free kick for non compliance.

Go for it. The May fine is a (censored due to extreme abusive foul language and words not even in the urban dictionary) and the MRC should be (censored due to extreme abusive language ) 🤣

Well you are a dunce then.  Contact is made with the shoulder which is legal. Buddy is oiled up so then logically the bump slides higher. Play on nothing to see just like the umpire called.

This smacks of petty payback because Fritsch got off & made them look stupid.

We must appeal otherwise it stays on his record then next trivial offence he will cop a week.

 

 

 

Christian is able to regularly look very stupid without the assistance of Fritsch.

See above.  
Comments and replays wake Christian from his deep stupor  and cause him to look at it.  
And with no comments and replay  (Fritsch behind the play in Tas, Rampe trying to break a neck off the ball) the dumbass doesn’t even look.  
Incompetence and / or corruption. Plus laziness.

I watched it in real-time but thought I was watching it in slo-mo: coz the time that elapsed from May’s contact with Franklin, and Franklin’s head being thrown back, was enough to make myself a cuppa.

We should be appealing the fine, asking for a staging fine for Franklin.

 

While we're at it, throw in a workplace health and safety lawsuit if no action is taken about that appalling off-the ball spear tackle with no purpose except aggression.

Just to add to the dirty Swans list, did anyone else notice the delightful Mr Papley picking/scratching at the back of Harmes head where Harmes had previously been bleeding from?  Charming stuff.

In addition, when the greasy player is tackled the tackler ends up with slippery hands impeding his subsequent ball handling ability.  Oil should be banned both because of this and because it causes unintentional head high contact.

Any body have any idea whether they are going to appeal this. I really hope they do. I can't see any reference to it anywhere. I thought there used to be an MRP section on afl.com.au but can't find anything.

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?

Better question: How much was Hawkins paid for breaking May's eye socket?

Accusation, no evidence, how typical. Self-justifying crap.

Of the two incidents, clearly the more dangerous. But probably not because....you know...it’s Sydney.

Apparently Mummy has been caught again on camera “accidentally” dropping both knees to the back of a prostrate Zac Merrett last round which only invoked cricket chirping from Mr Christian.

The honorary MRO Michael Christian was waiting for directions from the official MRO Brian Taylor. None came. Case closed.

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc
