Had Ah Chee not gotten concussed that I highly doubt he gets suspended. It really was just a clumsy bump was orchestrated well in terms of technique.

Reckon it'll get downgraded to 1 week.

How do you reckon Paddy Ryder will feel, considering he stopped, stood still and a player ran into him and got whiplash?

He copped 2 weeks. No concussion, no bump.

Don't do that. Burn down Ikon Park instead

Pffff.  KittyLitter Park while you are on your rampage.  Then they can rebuild it in a proper shape, and add in adequate seats for visitors.

They’re appealing. 

 

Well, that’s just a matter of taste. 

I personally find them a little on the objectionable side.

Did you think Chandler's legal tackle, until a concussion resulted, deserved his two?

Did you think ANB's sling deserved 4 in a 17 week season?

No to both. 

I'm not a fan of the outcome being decided by the result and not the intent but understand the crackdown on head high injuries.

I didn't think there was that much in it when I first saw the Cripps incident. He was contesting. He just got there far too late and braced for impact.

1 week for mine simply for the carelessness and impact.

It was a reckless and dangerous attack on the player who was concussed.

The AFL should appeal to increase the penalty.

Yep agree, can Demonlanders stop making excuses and lowering mitigating factors for him? Left the ground, chose to bump, player concused, should have got 4 weeks. End of story for him

Can anyone remember a time when we have challenged a suspension? Not the Melbourne way? That Steven May one when he was ran into still infuriates me.

bailey fritsch last year. initially rubbed out for a game (I think) but got off on appeal

I think player was pushed into him, or he was pushed into player.

Fritta last year, and he got off. 
I remember it coz there were more DL-ers logged on during the hearing than ever there was even on a GameDay thread during a match. 😁

I’m not sure how they can appeal this? It was classed as Careless impact which got him high and the impact was high because he was concussed. The only way is they can contest it to low impact which is ridiculous or if they say it wasn’t a careless act but a footy act?

Due to concussion, Ah Chee will miss this week - but he should also miss the next 10 for allowing his face to interfere with Cripps' 

There should be a penalty if you lose an appeal. Its just a waste of everyones time.  Carlton have nothing to lose. AFL is so badly run. Amateurs running a professional league.

I think youre right but 10k is lunch money for clubs.

The suspension should be double if you lose after wasting everyones time.

That’s the surprising part of this. It should have been 3 weeks, reduced to 2 if he accepted a plea of the 2 weeks. This way there’s absolutely no cost to Cripps if he appeals (apart from a week’s pocket money spent on the cost of the appeal and the QC acting as his mouthpiece).

Incidental contact… what BS. That’s not a footy act. 

The key issue to play out at the tribunal will be what duty of care Cripps had towards Ah Chee, given he elected to bump and lifted his feet off the ground, as the 2022 AFL guidelines state that if a player elects to bump, they take on the risk – and the consequences!!!  This is what we need to stamp out of the game.

Jumping and bumping to the head. It’s a low act from a star footballer !!

    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
