What a ridiculous system. The MRO is pointless. Gets appealed then tribunal is held and then that can be appealed?? Cmon guys we can do better. That’ll be 4 assessments of the one incident.

Remind me to take off ten throws, six shoves in the back two umpire kisses, each, and two half time and four general umpire conversations, three swaggers, two stagers and one pirouette. Then add it on again.

What a joke 

He should get 3 weeks for challenging the decision 

As the Tribunal said : 

Tribunal chairman Jeff Gleeson said the incident fell into the "bumping of an opponent" category and it was not a reasonable way to contest the ball.

"He entered the contest at speed and saw a player in his peripheral vision, left his feet and bumped Ah Chee at high speed," Gleeson said.
 
"He should have contested the ball differently. He could have taken the ball with his arms outstretched so there was no act of bumping at all."
 
QED.

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.

To me it looks like Crapps has the Brownlow sewn up and it wold be an enormous embarrassment to Gil on Brownlow night if he couldn't claim the medal.

Prepare for an acquittal and an apology.

Has barely polled a vote since the bye. He won’t even be top 3.

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.

Mate are you a fortune teller? Fair call on that.

Carlton argued Cripps didn’t see Ah Chee in his peripheral vision. He was straight in front of him FFS! Clearly smashed a bloke half his side to fire up his team 

Of course he saw him , That's why he jumped in the air.

IIRC... The MRO/Tribunal/Appeals Board mechanisms protect AFL from these cases being take to courts and potentially having a court grant injunctive relief for a period of time nullifying suspension (IE wait until season over until hearing appeal)

I'm sure Lawyers on here can comment with more knowledge than I on this matter.

So appeals board is effectively last chance saloon

Didn’t see him is a laughable defense. If he didn’t see him, why did he even jump in the air? Why didn’t he extend his arms and attempt to grab the ball from the air? Why didn’t he extend his arms to spoil the ball? Why did he turn his body and put weight behind his shoulder? 

If he gets off, then the precedent is set; bumps to the head that knock out opponents are fair game.

No way he should get off.

Question: if Cripps’ suspension gets extended and Carlton gets knocked out of the H&A season, as the extension will roll into next year would he be ineligible for next year’s Brownlow?

It's a good question, I'd say it should. Unless they factor in the stupid pre season games.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    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
