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.

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.

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.

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 ) 🤣

Might have been said already but after that May went to help him up and Franklin brushed his hand away....very grumpy old man.

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?

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.

    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
