Sydney Appealing Buddy Ban

I just don't understand how the Swans feel they are a 50-50 chance for him to get off? He struck him to the head! Good on them for playing the system like a fiddle but gee wiz. 

If you choose to bump in play and accidentally ( non intentionally ) hit the head you go.

He chose to strike a player off the ball ( twice ) and will claim he accidentally hit his head. That is worse than bumping in play.

Of course he'll get off it's good for the Sydney market and don't forget it's good for the promotion of the game in NSW.

How good of the AFL to give them an extra 24 hours to build up the suspense and free promotion in Sydney.

Bravo AFL 👏 👏👏👏 Bravo.

Next thing you know the AFL will schedule the tribunal hearing out on the MCG as the pre-match entertainment. Will Buddy get off? (A bit like saying, will Indiana Jones get the treasure and the girl?) Stay tuned for the odds with Nathan Brown, and remember, gamble responsibly.

Sydney must have some basis for the appeal (no idea what it is mind). Why else would they spend the time and energy on a lost cause. And it disrupts/distracts them from their preparations for the game. Very strange

Probably not much.

Just rolling the dice that marquis players don't get suspended.  They play! 

Nothing to lose but a mere $10,000.

All the AFL have to say is “if we let Buddy off, then we’re officially sanctioning deliberate slaps/fists to the head as ok”. Doesn’t seem possible, if only on account of the precedent it sets. On the other hand, the AFL obviously thinks precedents have about a 6 day lifespan.

I can only wonder what an incoming "foreign" AFL CEO, carefully headhunted from afar, would think of this competition.

"So some guys can hit guys and get thrown in sports jail, and some guys don't? And this head-is-sacrosanct thing, I kinda get it, but it don't seem so sacrosanct out on the ballpark ..."

"So this guy doped his whole team? Like, not just involved in it, but actually thought it up and managed it ... and he's not run outa town? What? He's coaching at another franchise??"

If it goes for another 15 Minutes he would have got of! If he does just watch players start snotting players left right and centre!

How good is AFL Counsel Andrew Woods.?   Cut and paste from AFL.Com.au below;

referncing Fight Club,  - brilliant. Game over surely.

"BRAZEN, COWARDLY"

Woods sums up the AFL's argument.
 
"I’m at a loss to think it’s less than negligible."
 
He reiterates Franklin was angry.
 
"Precisely what a professional AFL player should know what not to do," Woods said.
 
"It’s brazen, it’s cowardly and the opposing player isn’t expecting that to happen to him.
 
"It’s AFL, not Fight Club or a combat sport."

I find the whole spectacle made if this on the afl website a bit unsettling - “ tune in to find out if Buddy gets off for whacking another player in the head ?” Like it’s a reality tv show.
even foxsports site the attached video with footage had 30 second pointsbet sporting add 

AFL industry seem to have gone past it’s moral compass on a lot of this - very much a $$$$$ industry.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
