Patrick Cripps FREE to play



Recommended Posts


I think 2 weeks is about right, I don't think he intended such a head-high malicious act, although he did intend to hit him hard

the fact it is not in a marking contest means the Blues have no basis to even argue that he should be cleared

MRO will give 2 weeks and then they will appeal.  the media will make it a circus

If he gets suspended I see this playing out until Thursday night. 
2 weeks today, challenge at the Tribunal Tuesday night where the ban is upheld and finally to the appeals board Thursday.

Should go but I suspect the wheels are turning to prevent any suspension. 

If that happens you have to feel for someone like Kade Chandler, a “no name” who took a two week suspension just when on the cusp of getting a regular game. 

There’s no way he’ll get off without suspension. Ah Chee was concussed, and if there’s one thing the AFL doesn’t want to be seen being flippant about anymore it’s concussion. 

Ah Chee will miss a match next week, but Cripps gets to play? Absolutely no way.

He'll get 2 weeks, perhaps reduced to 1, then may get off on appeal

But the more I look at the replay the more I think it is incidental contact. If Ah Chee isn't there, then Cripps grabs the ball on his chest in a chest mark motion. Had the ball been kicked, this would be a perfectly reasonable attack at the footy.

Will all come down to whether his attack on the ball is seen as reasonable.

1 or 2 weeks but then Carlton   likely to appeal with little to lose and then the media circus  goes into overdrive same as the all week Buddy fiasco before our game with the swans. The AFL is run  by amateurs. Lose the appeal and sentence doubled.  Pure and simple.

From what I saw his intention was to bump Ah Chee. Therefore the act has to be adjudicated as intentional. With the high impact and injury, he will get 2-3 weeks. If the MRO deem it to be unintentional ( the contact), then he will get off. If that happens then there is no doubt there are different sets of rules depending on a players popularity

They'll argue Ahh Chee got concussed as Cripps fell down and hit him in the head, which was accidental. The initial jump and hit to the head was not that malicious, no free kick given (of course) and not an act that would have concussed Ahh Chee.

He'll get off I think.

Not even Carlton can get off this one, In the air a blatant elbow to the jaw of Ahh Chee knocked out subbed out of game.

They will give Cripps 2 weeks effectively ending his season.

Ah cheers might also have to miss our game.

Not sure how it works, but it is a mandatory 12 day break posy concussion.

Day 12 is tge Friday we play them.

Cripps should have simply tackled Ahh Chee - his decision was to bump. It was made a lot worse by jumping off the ground and making contact with the head - no attempt to actually win the ball

Has to be suspended - but we all know how flawed this system is

Of course Cripps should get weeks.

But Cotchin should have been suspended for his sling tackle on Saturday night. Got nothing.

Be prepared for the MRO to say it wasn't a reportable offence.

(PS: I don't like the way we generally, whether overtly or not, whether subconsciously or not, hope that our opponents' best players may miss due to injury/suspension. Whether or not Cripps plays this week, we need to assume Carlton bring their best, which is capable of beating us).

100% - we need to (and should) destroy the Blues this week, with or without Cripps.

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.

    DAISY DOES IT by Whispering Jack

    The Gold Coast has been treated to a feast of womens football over the past couple of days. On Friday night, the Brisbane Lions claimed flag favouritism when they knocked the Adelaide Crows off their second placed perch at Metricon Stadium. Then on Saturday evening at the same venue, the Melbourne Demons consolidated their hold on that vacated second spot when, they ruthlessly smashed a finals contender in consecutive weeks, this time the home town favourites, the Suns.    It was a case
