Patrick Cripps FREE to play



Recommended Posts

And what is all this BS about bringing in fresh vision not presented to the MRO?  Surely in any professionally run organization ALL available evidence would be presented at the start.   Ah, “professionally run organization” May explain it.  What garbage.

It sounds like amateur hour. Suddenly some Zapruder footage emerges and we need to call the jury back in. They are loving this, attention that drags on for days.

… except it’s not different at all. 😂

 

It’s funny how supporters view their own players. A Richmond fan would probs say “Different if his name was Cripps or Curnow” They’re all equally as one-eyed. Except for us of course 🤫

Someone mentioned it is a 'kangaroo  court', and in its practices and variations in outcomes, that would  be an extremely generous assessment. It was one event, well exemplified, so what 'fresh vision' could be so imperative as to take over two hours to arrive at a decision - unless some stroker wanted Cripps found innocent against the evidence?

Why does it take so long to get the fresh vision as well? Is there some system that every cameraman's footage has to go through? Is it even AFL owned vision or some dufus in the crowd who took a video on their mobile? You'd think all vision the league has access to would be gathered and made available right then and there. This was the same jargon that went on with Toby Green and Matt Stevic.

Maybe it does take slightly longer for the televising network to cut up and get ready the footage that wasn't used on the broadcast but for argument's sake I don't care. The MRO should get every angle from every camera, scrub to the part in the game where the incident happened and have instant acess to all angles of the incident on Sunday night, not Tuesday. Surely that can't be that hard.

Should we assume that Carlton will lodge a stay of proceedings or something so as to allow the hearing to be heard at the Conclusion of the home and away series    or the end of the finals ?

Carlton appealing again apparently. 6pm tomorrow night.

Clubs usually have until 12pm Wednesday to appeal a tribunal decision, heard on the radio Carlton were given until 5pm today because their representative/lawyer was in court today.

I'd be interested to know how he still has a two week suspension after losing the first appeal.

Isn't there supposed to be some sort of incentive/disincentive built in?  Accept your punishment and get what you get.  Challenge and its an extra week?

If not, and if it's just a free hit, why wouldn't everyone challenge every suspension?

Should increase the suspension an extra week for wasting everyone’s time and money. He carelessly bumped and knocked a bloke out who’s now missing two weeks. His suspension is lenient if anything.

I hope the appeals board extend his suspension, Carlton make finals (losing to us but beating the pies) and lose their elimination final by a point with their skipper looking on from the stands. Would serve them right.

To succeed he would have to establish that the decision the Tribunal made, was not open to them on the evidence. That is an extremely high bar. Essentially you are asking for a finding that the Tribunal completely stuffed up the case.

However, clubs have the option of contesting a Tribunal decision at the Appeals Board so long as they meet one of four stipulations:

  • Error of law
  • That the decision was so unreasonable that no Tribunal acting reasonably could have come to the decision having regard to the evidence before it.
  • Classification of offense manifestly excessive or inadequate.
  • Sanction imposed manifestly excessive or inadequate.
  • Club believes it is privileged and has rights above others
  • Club believes its season is f--ked if its player does not get off.

    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

    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
