Ralphy just said we should know in 20 mins

he reckons Buddy 1 week

Kozzi 2 weeks

That’s fair, you get more for a bad look that doesn’t cause damage, than actual damage.

The first point of contact with Smith is the shoulder and then Smith’s head whiplashes back, but without any damage, or even medical attention.

Some good posts, even if I don’t take out my MFC beating heart and try and be subjective, and not argue equivalency, then clearly this still needs to be a learning moment for Pickett. Leaving the ground is something we’ve loved about him, remember the tackle from the recruiting video?, but he needs to adjust. Love the player but I do want players to be more careful of heads. If that costs a week to learn the lesson I can cope, I would prefer a large fine.

Am curious as why there wasn’t mandatory concussion check on Smith, there is a story there as well.

Hang on. Kozzies was deemed high impact despite his opponent getting straight up, playing on, and not even requiring a concussion test.

But Buddy is medium impact when his opponent was taken from the field under concussion protocols and sat out.

Nice one AFL. [censored] me dead

Buddy returns for our match

So no injury is worse than concussion!

No injury is high impact: concussion is medium impact   Unbelievable  

Bastards   

Buddy > Kozzie.

High impact? I'd be challenging that to reduce to a week.

It wasn’t high impact. The MRO works off a formula but if you just make things up to get an answer you think is about right, change the bl**dy formula then. Don’t take the outcome into account!

we would be insane to challenge this finding.  keeps it in the media for days and could (?) possible result in more weeks

Impact looked high to me. Imagine a barrel chested Kozzi flying full pace into your chest, low impact?  i dont think so

The criteria should not be if the bloke is big and tough enough to get up straight away it should how hard to bump was.

I will be annoyed if we don't contest this on the grounds it wasn't high contact as it was a hit to the body.

Though knowing us we will just roll over as always.

he was clearly hit in the head after the primary contact to the body.  see picture posted earlier

I’d leave it, but if we want to challenge it has to be the grading of high impact over medium (not high contact over body). 

Smith got up straight away with no injury. That is “low”. The MRO has upgraded it two levels. He’s graded it more severely than Buddy, where his victim was concussed. 

I fully support the Guidelines allowing the MRO to upgrade the severity to account for potential to harm but upgrading it two levels may not be fair. 

Ultimately I’d cop the 2 weeks but this is where I’d challenge if I had to. 

Possibly the worst fortnight of games to miss, unfortunately.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res
