Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.

Careless, high Impact, High Contact. Regardless of whatever was going through Maynard's mind at the moment.

El Diablo, it might not be graded as careless if not deemed rough contact. People on here seem to forget about the Van Rooyen spoil which if judged by the same standard on here would have been a 2 - 3 week suspension.

This can’t surely be it. He’s had a really good run with injuries and is playing some of the best football of his career. Can take a whole pre season and rest and get better. 
I truly hope this is not the outcome. 

I wouldn't be completely shocked if it was. These a good reason he wears that Helmut. I imagine it's from a Drs order. Bloody hell.

I hope theres a team of top notch neuro surgeons testifying as to the danger of this act

Going to leave the AFL community in mass confusion if Maynard gets cleared.

I get that it was a football incident rather an off the ball act of thuggery, but he could be held accountable for a severe impact.

 

 

Exactly. Irrespective of actual intent this action and outcome must leave our game or we will have no ( recognizable) game in 10 years.

Funny how Maynard quickly tried to frame the incident as a football act.

Trying to get out in front of it.

Reminded me of T. Bugg talking about his punch not being what we are all about.

Guilt is often not silent.

Don't agree. The afl release notes new gm football Laura Kane weighed with mro and endorsed grading giving Maynard 3 weeks.

Can't be downgraded due to severe impact. And she needs to see this done. I'm confident his 3 weeks stand.

Or we burn down the house and forget any serious discussion on concussion.

And fakes like dangerfield who has been disgraceful in this episodes commentary can sit quietly in the corner where he belongs.

I support your position 

I just don't think a Tribunal will, I think they'll question "Careless" and treat as reasonable football act, then aplit second to brace for impact

The more I watch the replay of this act the more it shows how guilty he is and dishonest. 

He ran at full tilt at Gus without ever deviating and then launched.

How did he think he would stop?

The moment he ran and jumped sealed poor Gus' s fate.

Maynard knew he would crash into Gus and is100% guilty.

 

This is it in a nutshell. Everyone is commenting on the impact, there was only one intent and that was to take ball and body. Leading up to moment he launched he had a plethora of options. And in my view even deviated to make body contact, all of this before turning his shoulder for maximum impact.

Of all the guys this could have happened to, why did it have to be Gus? Genuinely upset over this. 
 

Maynard is a dog, and he’ll cop his 3 weeks here. There is no way a hit with this sort of outcome can be excused, regardless of intent (which isn’t necessarily a defence these days anyway). 
 

Maynard knew damn well what he was trying to do and he succeeded.

What Absolute Rubbish 

Maynard could have just as easily swung his body to the left to avoid a problem. He didn’t 

Also, for f sake, he had no forward momentum: he had jumped to smother, then, after the ball had passed him, he thrust his shoulder forward straight into Brayshaw's head. All the thug had to do was land, it's not as though Brayshaw was going to take him out - Brayshaw was playing football, Maynard was playing the man.

Firstly l’m wishing Angus Brayshaw a speedy and hopefully a complete recovery.

Secondly a fair and just outcome in the post-tribunal wash up. If the AFL hierarchy are truly committed to minimising the impact of concussion accidentally, unintentionally or otherwise. Here is an opportunity for the AFL to act with authority and integrity by sending a clear signal competition wide. Subsequently there must be an appropriate consequence given. To do otherwise would be a failure of responsibility.

I maintain four weeks.

Some of these commentators acting tough that there's nothing in it sound like they've copped too many hits themselves.

Bloody disgraceful to defend it.

Maynard should come clean and accept a punishment if he's really remorseful.  It's a disingenuous attempt to avoid suspension.

 

As though he should have been allowed to 'clear his name' just after the game, claiming Brayshaw was his mate....

Nonsense: Van R's eyes were on the ball: you maybe need to book a check up with your optician.

Thoughtful and dispassionate post Tc. Nice concern about Gus.

Also Gus was completely exposed. he had the ball disposed of it. 

He has the right to feel he is protected from a high severity bump. the slow motion is brutal. 

If he somehow gets off i will be dead set ropable. and i’ll be expected Goody to tell his team to play dirty and that’s rewarded apparently

If what jane02 says is right this HAS to form part of the prosecution case

must

The club must demand it 

and then the club and family must sue the afl, umpires and maynard

the afl has set the rules of engagement especially for duty of care and they have failed 

heads must roll

i want people afore a firing squad if true

If Tom Morris is correct and the AFL’s powerbrokers were involved in sending this to the tribunal, then surely they’ll appeal any tribunal non-decision to ensure Maynard’s suspended for the rest of the season. 

He knew exactly what he did and quickly went in to self preservation mode knowing he just [censored] his season.  Hopefully the tribunal can see through his antics and the moronic football media to stamp his thuggery out of the game.

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi
