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.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
