Patrick Cripps FREE to play

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 !! 

Good luck with that.  I expect the tribunal will overcome that key issue by simply saying he wasn't electing to bump, merely trying to get to the ball.    Hopefully (for us, if not for the game) they'll dodge being honest by compromising on a 1 week ban.

Whilst I’m repeating myself.

If he gets off it will mean we now have game rules that can be interpreted several different ways and penalty rules the same . Leaves the game open to corruption imo. What a shambles. Need to remember it wasn't a marking contest it for those who want to compare it to Rioli.

No, the Willie Rioli one was the rebirth of the dirty bumps which is exactly why Cripps Defence are referring to it. It's a good precedent for him to get off imo

You're right, I forgot about that one.

Well this one won't help.

Unfortunately, I think he may get off...

Rioli comparison justifies attacking the ball and incidental contact, albeit heavy contact

I feel it's one of those situations where a player knows they can attack the ball and have the added bonus of spearing an opponent, because that opponent has chosen to follow ball back into oncoming traffic

I don't want Cripps to play, but would be arguing against a Demon suspension in same circumstances

Matt Rowell got up and played on after the willie Rioli incident iirc. The Brisbane doc says that Ah chee is under medical protocols and will miss 1 or 2 games. Much different outcome so I think the ban will be upheld

Rowell continued playing, not hurt.

Anyone know who is sitting on the Tribunal tonight?

I heard Loewe was one. Didn’t hear who the others were. 
 

The fact that it’s sitting for this long, doesn’t bode very well. I think he is getting off. 
 

10sec after I posted. Decision upheld 🤘 The CYB zinger at work.

    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

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
