Angus Brayshaw almost was!

Brayden "the Thug" Maynard almost [censored] killed him!

Don't ever [censored] forget that!

What happened to Angus Brayshaw and the fact that Brayden "the Thug" Maynard never even got suspended will be one of the greatest injustices in the AFL in recent memory!

I will be angry about it for a very [censored] long time!!! 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

I will never forget what that thug did to Gus and got away with it. Now he’s a premiership player - makes me sick to the core. There is a special place in hell reserved for Maynard.

Brayden Maynard’s acquittal was a heinous miscarriage of justice by a King's Counsel that absolutely should have gone to appeal.

Maynard weaponised his body crashing into Brayshaw's head at a 45° angle with his shoulder and elbow tucked into his body whilst maintaining eye-contact with Brayshaw's head.

Maynard’s first action was smothering with arms outstretched to spoil Brayshaw’s kick.

Maynard’s second action was bumping Brayshaw head-high with his shoulder and elbow tucked into the body, causing serious injury.

If a player jumps off the ground front-on to smother, and then braces and bumps the kicker head-high resulting in serious injury, then the act of smothering is careless.

AFL Law states players can be reported for: "(vi) bumping or making forceful contact to an opponent from front-on when that Player has their head down over the football" .

The act of kicking clearly comes under this provision.

An aggravating factor in this case is the career-ending and life-threatening potential that front-on hip-and-shoulders pose. 

Not only was Maynard let off, but there is no deterrence for players from front-on smothers that risk serious injury.

The verdict shows that the AFL is not taking reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of players.

Additionally, the fact Michael Christian, the current Match Review Officer threatened to resign if Maynard was charged shows the spectre of Eddie McGuire still hangs over the AFL like Donald Trump in US politics.

ROTTEN TO THE CORE.

If we can't shut this thread down can we at least change the title to past tense?

No one agrees with what happened, and there are other things to focus on.

 

 

 

La vendetta è un piatto che va servito freddo.

Well this thread should have been permanently shut down here as you stated.

To leave this open is now simply rubbing salt into the wound now that Maynard has a medal around his neck.

If karma was real then that vile piece of [censored] Brayden "the Thug" Maynard would be accidentally hit by the Brisbane Lions team bus on his way to the MCG for the Grand Final tomorrow!

I am going to BOO that [censored] for as long as he [censored] plays his AFL career! 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

 

Mate calm ya [censored] farm. Seriously, I get it's hurting watching Maynard win a premiership medal but spewing up pathetic comments such as you hope he gets hit by a bus is pure filth. Pull your head in. You sound exactly like Collingwood filth supporter.

Time to lock this thread @Demonland

Calls to lock this thread are misguided.  As time goes on, people will post less to it and it will start to fade away no matter how angry most of us remain. And then Maynard will again do something nasty and it will fire up again for a while. As it should.

All that matters is we know for certain now the contempt the AFL has for the MFC. McLachlan disregarded his own head injury agenda to please Collingwood and spit in our faces. No- one cared about Brayshaws medical condition except his angry brothers. It was all about poor Maynard . Did the AFL appeal the decision. Nope. Just crickets from AFL HQ.  Dont forget 2 fwds from Melbourne's depleted fwd list  were suspended during the finals. We got stiched up royally by the AFL. Collingwood is laughing at us.

Their very public support of Carlton Swans and Collingwood is enough to put anyone off AFL.

Just wait for the 2024 fixture.

It could get ugly. The MCG is not our home ground. Its Collingwoods.

We must show the same contempt to the broader AFL, just stick to our boys.

We can be victim to this or use it for ammunition in 24. if it’s us against them then let’s weaponise it culturally.

Totally agree. As ive said several times we have to stop being the Mr Niceguy of the AFL.

No -one GAF if our players are jolly nice chaps. Gawn Brown Brayshaw need to pull themselves together and stop babbling on podcasts and attending kiddie events.  Theyre not social workers.

Goodwin needs to stop wearing those stupid beanies too.

He looks ridiculous.

ON these sites everything Dirty and underhanded should be brought up, especially to do with how the AFL administers favouritism to their pet Clubs.

They have opened a can of filthy worms over the past couple of years and they need to be reminded constantly of things like safety and discrimination against players

 Two or three players should have got this years Medal, instead of someone who took four marks at least by himself.

“Should’ve gone to appeal.” You’re dead right, it should’ve gone to appeal… but it was never going to. It was never a consideration. Why? Because the AFL knew Collingwood would take it to the Supreme Court, they’d engage Galbally and make NO mistake… the thug would be free to play. This is also why the AFL presented such a glaringly weak case. They never had any intention of nailing the thug, but they had to appear to be doing something about the concussion thing. The power and might of the Collingwood [censored]-swingers would see to that. As was expected, the AFL folded like deck-chairs.

Don't really care about your opinion.

This is a discussion forum and if I want to vent my frustrations then I will!

I am [censored] angry and I [censored] hate Brayden "the Thug" Maynard for his vile act on Angus Brayshaw. Especially as Angus Brayshaw could of been killed.

If it was the other way around Eddie McGuire and the rest of the scum at Collingwood would of been screaming blue murder! The fact that this thuggery was allowed to go unpunished is far worse than any mere words I type here on the Internet.

The fact that the Melbourne Football Club didn't even make a public statement in support of Angus Brayshaw and voice their anger at the AFL tribunal for not at least attempting to appeal the "not guilty" decision is also a travesty and incredibly disappointing.

I thought it was [censored] soft as butter for not standing up to the AFL and Collingwood. Talk about bias and blatant corruption! The big Clubs always screw over the smaller Clubs! 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

 

Anyway, I am having a break from Demonland for a while.

I think it has been raised before, but is it true that the Chairman of the Tribunal , who basically dictated to the tribunal that despite all the evidence Maynard was blameless, is a Collingwood member (if not even more involved in that club)?   If so the AFL failed to address a massive conflict of interest.   No surprise at all by the way.  No wonder that at least some folk believe that the AFL may be corrupt to the core.

Yep, he’s definitely a Collingwood supporter, and doesn’t even pretend he isn’t. He’s the same bell end that said De Goey was only a ‘split second’ late when he knocked out that Eagles player - even though he had time to run past the ball, jump, and shoulder charge him in the head AFTER he got rid of the ball.

I wish the media had some bite. You can’t have such overt bias in legal decision making. It’s opening the AFL up to a mass of future claims. I hope they get sued into oblivion and someone else takes over the game.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    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

    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.
