Absolutely he does. Don’t get fooled by all the hype and inuendo in the media. He is protected by all. Buddy’s hit was not a football action and was direct to the opponents head. 

The check that both Kozzy and McAdams performed were only problematic as the opponent was not in the right state to protect themselves and hence secondary impact to the head was inevitable . Now I don’t support these acts by any stretch and I think they should be outlawed as the have, but Buddys cheap hit was vile, unprofessional and had actual intent to impact the head - which has been overlooked by all.

I haven't watched or read any media on the hits, just watched the footage.

The umm 'checks' as you call them, one was a bloke flying through the air and the other was clearly head high brutal hit. far worse than Buddys. "The checks were only problematic as the opponent was not in the right state to protect themselves"?  that is the funniest thing I have ever heard!  with a split second different timing or if Smith was not so big, Pickett could have knocked anyone out cold or worse.

Buddy's was the only one where the ball was in dispute. The tall poppy syndrome is full on on this site. oh he's Buddy so he only gets a week.  maybe we should look at our own baises as well.

Then I’d educate myself on the matter before jumping on here and critiquing others on their views as it is no laughing matter.

While I think the MRO and Tribunal decisions are too often a toin coss biased towards famous players, I'm not inclined to bag our club for rarely appealing.  But given Crows are appealing for an almost identical hit as Pickett's which actually injured the opponent, I am perplexed. Are we too compliant, or Crows to much the other way or maybe Pickett didn't want the fuss?

Geez McAdam lined him up from a long way out. I think we were right to just let it rest. Goody is right, the bump is dead. 

Koz does quite a lot of late tackles etc. I love watching him play but he's going to have to adjust his game.

He can hurt blokes just by making them look like witches hats. He has the potential to bust open matches and break their hearts.

Will be interesting to see how he handles being scragged, continually held and punched in the guts like Clarry when he's in the middle.

In the rush to align actions of a similar nature, are Adelaide suggesting the AFL toss out the outcome altogether?

McAdam's and Kossie's weren't entirely "similar". McAdam was later and the victim was concussed. Kossie didn't cause that level of injury. Three weeks for one and two for the other seems appropriate to me.

Buddy maybe should have got two weeks, but he didn't launch at the player off the ground like the other two.

I think they will be trying to argue it down to a 'high impact' rating and a 2 week suspension like Kozzie.

Yeah, we don’t want this in junior footy, but let’s keeping showing the Kozzie and McAdam hits over and over and over on the telly.

I don’t agree with high hit bumps. But Kozzie playing tough sends a message. It was a split second action and the doggies player lowered his knees. He also got up straight away so no damage done. 
it says: I may be small, I may be a MFC player but watch out!

    GAMEDAY: Rd 12 vs Carlton

    The Blues season is on the line and their captain and coach have been in the firing line all week. If the Dees cough this one up the media's crosshairs will do a 180 and will surely be directed at the Demons who have only won 13 games from their last 25 outings. This is a must win game for the Melbourne Football Club too.

    DOCTORS AND LAWYERS by The Oracle

    We’ve seen it all before.   Club in turmoil. Coach under pressure. Club President caught up in a tax scandal. Club board not seeing eye to eye with one board member resigning amid questions about whether he was pushed or did he jump? Unrest bordering on hysteria among the supporters. Team dropping from undefeated after four rounds to 13th after ten. Allegations of favoured treatment of players. Players out of form, forwards with the kicking yips, a bruising injury list with some facing

    WRITING ON THE WALL by Whispering Jack

    The Narrm Football Club found a second way in the space of 12 months less a day to unexpectedly lose a home game against Walyalup on Saturday afternoon. The equivalent match of last year has been described as Melbourne’s “ground zero” of 2022 where things went wrong for the club after a long run of wins that included its 57 year drought-breaking premiership triumph. Unfortunately for the Demons, the 2023 version was a case of deja vu with the Dockers overcoming a half time deficit and runn

    CRUSHED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were dealt a crushing blow to their hopes of repeating last year’s premiership glory when they capitulated to the Werribee Tigers in the final term of what was for the first three quarters a riveting game of football. The Demons struck early with the opening two goals of the match but the Tigers fought back to level the scores by mid-term. From there on until the middle of the last quarter, there was never more than two goals separating the teams although the home side look

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs Walyalup

    Narrm return to the MCG to take on Walyalup who in the corresponding match last season broke the Demon's 17 game winning streak which was their first of three losses in a row. The Dees will need to win to stay in the Top 4.
