Patrick Cripps FREE to play



Recommended Posts

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.

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    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
