Uh god, the effin biomechanics guy. A Collingwood hack with a degree. Was he wearing a lab coat and a tin hat? Spent the night confusing the tribunal boneheads with science and demonstrating it was physically impossible for Maynard to do what Kozi casually did soon afterwards.

Someone told me the biomechanics guys was a professor from the 35th ranked university in the country. I wouldn't call him an expert btw.

I am an Engineer so I have a fair understanding of physics, so his condescending rethoric was pure rubbish.

Name one footballer who would have done what Gus did differently, you wont find one. Name one organization who would have done things differently to the AFL, Everyone except maybe Qantas.

I'll name you plenty, they would have wimped the kick. He didn't wimp anything for anybody.

Well said Shaun Smith.

Maynard ran a long time before he jumped.

He has form.

It was his first act of the game.

It's hard not to want a lot more of these smothers so the Afl do something .

Cannot believe the [censored] I’m reading here. If Gus did this, if Gus did that. FMD.
I’m fully convinced some on here do not support the MFC. 

They're letting themselves get sidetracked

I find it disturbing that Maynard got away with multiple inconsistencies that the AFL simply did not challenge.

Firstly he stated he did not project forward, that he was standing on the one spot.  Then he stated about an hour later that he did project forward but no more then 1 or 2 metres.

Secondly he stated the ball hit his hand, when the vision showed the ball passing his elbow, no where near his hand.

Then he stated he leapt from a standing position with both feet on the ground, when the vision showed he leapt off one foot while in a running motion.

Then he stated Brayshaw changed direction and that he was in Maynard's way.  As the player with possession of the ball, it was Maynard's responsibility to not be in Brayshaw's way.  What get me though is everyone was in agreement that Maynard was airborne before Brayshaw kicked the ball.  If that was the case, then that is proof it was not a smother attempt in the context of Maynard's testimony that Brayshaw changed direction - for Maynard's version to make sense, he would have assumed the ball would pass by the left of him, so how could he argue it was a smother attempt if he assumed the ball was not going to go anywhere near him?

So many holes and he got away with it.  And the AFL in the "wisdom" didn't challenge it.

KDF   there was nothing real about the tribunal.....it was all pretence.  Many are trying to apply logic reason ,sense and accountability to an organisation that neither uses nor advocates any.

The AFL...read Muppet Christian knew not to actually go forward with it....However the Kane mutiny was invoked ( in a fashion...still wondering if that was truly real or more optics )....and then they had to make up some rubbishy scripted sham parody of examination to placate the inconvenient minions who dare question the almighty wisdom of the AFL-Collective.

The AFL were mocking both in intent and method

Eddie m a a complete [censored].

Won't put his head on the line and play himself 

I have my own reasons for hating that man.  My uncle was chair of the Olympic Park Trust at the time of Collingwood trying to name Olympic Park the Bob Rose Oval, and it was my uncle that told him he couldn't do it.  That man went after my uncle professionally and personally, and for that I think of him as nothing more than scum of the earth.

100% it happens again this year. 100% nailed on guarantee. "football act"

The Byron Pickett type bump on defenceless players went on for years before the league acted.  Never mind that a player could have ended up in a wheelchair anytime whilst the glut of deliberate bumps to the head went on (and yes, I'm aware that Pickett played for us)

Laura Kane is talking about closing the loophole at the end of the season with the type of king hit that we witnessed but why not now?

Simple reason ... they'd be therefore having to admit that the thug did the wrong thing and should have got weeks (in other words, it's too soon)

As to whether it happens again?  There's a fair chance it will happen again and it could be Maynard as the perpetrator again.  After all, they've said that he had no case to answer for so why not continue?

As the biomechanics guy said once Maynard was airborne he was like a frisbee with legs, nothing he could, no control of his body. I mean see this all the time in the Olympics, you know on the high diving tower, the floor routines in gymnastics, the high jump all the time. You know once a strong, trained athlete leaves the ground all they can do is curl up into a ball and hope for the best!
 

Just wondering why the frisbee nonsense wasn’t challenged, there were options and Maynard was in the best position, arms out in front, just before he chose to turn the shoulder that did the damage. I believe He would have stayed open if he was about to collide with a team mate. 

Maybe it was Maynard's body spinning like a frisbee in a counter clockwise direction towards Gus's head.

Yep, sure they'll close the loophole over the off season. They fully realise it's leaving them wide open to future litigation. They've already achieved their short-term goal: of making it more likely the Filth get into a Grand Final and the AFL knobs get their bonuses.  

My god, it's disgusting. This bunch of corporate wankers have taken over our beloved community game, corrupted it from within. I remember seeing this lovely Leunig cartoon, years ago. It began:

They're privatising things we own together,

they're flogging off the people's common ground,

And though we're still connected by the weather,

They say that sharing things is now unsound.

That’s wonderfully put mate.

We had a fatality at work today. 
 

I’m reading this [censored] on here to try and detach myself from the awful thing that happened in the real world today. 
 

It’s a faaarkkking game of football. 
Get [peed] off but in context. 
 

Sorry to hear mate, that's horrible.

All I hope for is that the AFL makes this workplace as safe as possible for their employees.

Eddie has made us all ashamed a long time ago with his Sydney antics, and it looks like it is a bit of a struggle..

I see Whately did a complete about-face, as did Maher

At first both were looking for guilt and indeed, both found fault ... but once the verdict was handed down, both fell into line with the group-think.  Weak as [censored]

Patronisingly telling Melbourne supporters to move on

That's awful. Hope he didn't get too personal but that might be wishful thinking.

Yes, he did.  The worst was his attempt to get him off some boards, not only the Olympic Park Trust, but the Parks Victoria board.  Uncle Alan is one of the most calm, reasonable, professional, intelligent person out there, that scum doesn't hold a candle to him.  I remember Dad asking him what's it like trying to reason with McGuire, the response Uncle Alan got was "Like trying to reason with petulant child who's been told he can't have a lollipop".  Apt description of him.

Also the nerve of the guy to get Debra Brayshaw's number and ring her.

Definitely not the sharpest tool...but a tool none the less.

    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

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
