Patrick Cripps FREE to play



Recommended Posts

The AFL are in a complete mess with this one, have opened up a completely new can of worms for everyone to manipulate the system.

I know where the high esteemed lawyers will be going for holidays and who will be paying for it.

I think you are missing the point.

I am sure they have found he contested, not bumped.

Paddy Ryder who stood still and had a player run into him and get whiplash, copped two weeks.

He should sue.

And every time I look at the vision I see a guy flying in late, not genuinely contesting for the mark and hitting a player in the head. Anyone who has played footy knows what Cripps was doing, making the guy earn the mark. He was too late to contest for the mark and these elite players earn their living making split second decisions to contest a ball or evade a tackle.

Whatever Nev. 

Whatever I or anyone else said, you would think the complete opposite. 

 

Facepalm away. 

 

Didn't mean to offend you.

I'm sure you're right, I'm sure our entire team will go after Cripps and our supporters will boo him all day because he wasn't suspended.

Apologies.

Took the words right out of my mouth corruption is alive and well in the AFL, they really want them to play finals these corrupt dogs.

All the ammunition we need lets just send them packing the good old fashioned way on the MCG.

Might not be that easy W4A... better hope the AFL doesn't reinstate the early season version of dissent as a one off just for us. 

Or worse...the pre-season version against the Blues 🤮

 The ball was punched by the defender so Cripps wasn’t even contesting a mark.

I wonder how Ah Chee feels sitting out this week because of an arbitrary decision that doesn’t take into consideration anything about his specific incident, while watching Cripps get a week to explain himself resulting in his ability to play.

This absolutely stinks. I hope a player with a financial interest in playing takes the AFL to court on their concussion protocols, and uses this case as precedent. They protect their money and interests but don’t care about players.

The only winner here is the Carlton QC, FMD.

We'll still beat them.

I'm going to be the odd man out here. I didn't think it warranted a suspension.

However, I thought he would be due to the incident causing concussion. I'm not a fan of the result determining the suspension but this is the way the AFL play it these days.

I also don't think Nibbler or Chandler should have got such hard suspensions

And this is why, if Melbourne folded tomorrow, I would never watch another game of football ever again. 

I agree. My passion for the sport us getting less and less the older I get.

At least the afl are consistent. One set of rules for stars, another set for everyone else.

Look it's not crippas fault he got off, I'm guessing his reps had found some new evidence or managed to spin it in the way to make him look favourable. 

I thought he had no chance of getting off, I mean once a player goes off concussed that's it. 

But tomorrow it's going to create a good discussion tomorrow and I'm sure some players are shaking there heads. 

Oh look honestly I'm more worried about stopping Curnow and McKay

No this does not clear the way for all clubs to be treated/judged equally.

This is confirmation of how the AFL & power clubs make megabucks in bed together.

 

Professional effin entertainment, that’s all it really is. Money talks.

I don’t see it that way at all. What we have seen is replicated often in the civil courts at least, particularly by anyone with deep pockets, willing to keep appealing through the various levels of the court system. Guilty at one level, don’t worry appeal to a higher court and bingo the finding can get reversed.

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    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.
