Vision too poor to see if he pins an arm. If he does, we’re probably toast. But if not then this seems over the top.

As always the vision is just excellent 🙄

I call BS (based on this vision). Christiansen unhappy that JVR got off. Sparrow is trying pull him down in the tackle - not sideways. The sling is a result of two players moving in different directions initiated by Day’s rotation trying to break the tackle.

This is the Guidelines on dangerous tackle offences:

This appears like it can only be the last one - slung into the ground with excessive force. 

The AFL is hot on these this year. This one doesn’t leap out at me like others do. I assume he’d fail at the Tribunal but I really, really struggle to accept that this deserves a week whilst Meek was charged with kneeing for the second time and gets a fine, or Caldwell gets a fine for an intentional gut punch to Daicos on ANZAC Day. But here we are.

Can I ask a question? How is sparrow meant to stop rotation when Sparrow’s momentum is already heading to the right? I mean, what’s he meant to do? Arms are free and even if he lets go before he tackles him to ground and day still hits his head, does he still get a week? I’m totally confused.

I saw it and immediately thought it’ll be looked at.

Player was ok so was hoping it’ll be a fine. 
It was a dumping tackle. Not heaps in it.

Agreee but at the time I think no free was paid. Not certain though

I don’t have it in me to go another 5 rounds with the tribunal and appeals board 😂

It did not take long for the tribunal to get even with the MFC.

OK..

How the F does anyone extrapolate in a 3D meaningful way...in advance... NOT BLOODY HINDSIGHT... how any event matures.

People moving ar upteen kph ...in any and varied directions.    But that isn't the focus of any player.  They only concern themselves with the moment, the event, the role, the ball .  Somehow they have to think beyond ????

Its all B.S.

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
