The fact Maynard failed to touch the ball for me is key. If he had then it would be a smother that had incidental contact. That he didn't means this was a bump and nothing else. I don't care what his intent was - the action was a bump, late, to the head.

Chook, you have simplified it as it should be. Ball had left the area and then a head high bump caused injury. Onus on Maynard.

The nerve of the guy to go to Gus's house with a bottle of red wine. "No worries Brayden, you have given me a brain injury with possible lifetime repercussions, you also might of ruined my career, but thanks for the wine"

I think a suspension is fair (but wouldn't be surprised if JVR spoiling the Gold Coast bloke into oblivion is used as a precedent to let him off) but carrying on like he's the devil is a bit rich. If Brayshaw had KOed Maynard in the same circumstances this board would be full of Zapruder footage style analysis of why it wasn't his fault.

He horribly mistimed something, it had serious consequences but not going to hold a lifetime grudge against him over it.

JVR had eyes for the ball..not the player & the player proceeded to play the game out. Maynard had eyes for Brayshaw..the ball had left his hands and he chose to turn his shoulder & he collected him ..shoulder to head. He also left the ground. He also publicly stated he was going to go in hard. He took out one of our best midfielders and completely changed the way we had to play our game especially with the use of Trac. Laurie is also a half forward not a midfielder. I have no problem having a lifetime grudge against him & very easy to extend the same courtesy to the entire club. Don’t even get me started on Mason Cox & the rockstar applause when Ginnivan came on. Noble would be justifiably aggrieved with his omission …

thats purely a show for the MRO to prove there was no malice....

malice or not, footy act or not - as Goody said, the facts speak for themselves and it was intended or recklessly careless as a minimum

dont be swayed by the crocodile tears

Good points, however - Maynard has form here and had other options and we know he had a duty of care. He’s a buffoon and if he wants play like he does, he has to wear the opprobrium. God imagine if this had been Greene on Daicos. The media would be baying for blood.

Here’s a bottle of wine, Gus. Yes I know you can’t drink for at least 12 days, but that’s of no importance since this is nothing more than tokenism.

I think an interesting adjunct to this story is Christian’s position. If it’s true he was disinclined to refer Maynard to the tribunal, or had some difficulty coming to that decision - compelling Kane to step in -when taken alongside the broader context of the current litigation against the AFL, Christian’s position appears untenable. 

He’s either hopelessly conflicted, or hopelessly incompetent, because this is a prima facie case for a lengthy on the spot sanction. 

Either way, he must go. 

A legal, ethical and PR nightmare. 

It’ll be interesting to see what happens there. If I’m Kane, I’m removing him at season’s end and reviewing the MRO.

Gus should just end the friendship right then and there. Who would try to injure and endanger a friend's career?

Can't believe this thread.

It was an honest footy action, fractions of seconds of time to make decisions.

I saw lots worse in my playing days (long ago). 

What would Maynard's coach and fellow players have said if he had shrunk from the contest?

It is a contact sport FCS !!

I am ashamed to be a demonlander when reading some of the posts on this thread.

Of course it's not all I'm saying I don't think Maynards intention was to take him out.

Well I think it was deliberate, once you leave the ground it is deliberate and you cause ALL the consequences.

He may be a wonderful charming fellow  off the ground, but if you do the crime and get caught you do the time.

Hey everybody, Rollinson 65 saw lots worse than this in his playing days, so there’s nothing left to discuss and we should close the thread before we make him feel further ashamed! 
 

“What would Maynard's coach and fellow players have said if he had shrunk from the contest?“

Just a question that might be worth you pondering: 

What contest?

I think that's where the mentality is changing. The excuse of not being able to change direction in mid air isn't cutting it now. Responsibility starts at the choice to leave the ground and the fact is that once you leave the ground you have very little control, just like if you choose to drive fast in the wet then lose control and hit someone.

That's the message I'm getting anyway.

A player running wide open kicking inside 50 doesn’t deserve to lose consciousness as a result? 
Our game is so weak now.

Exactly. 
 

So many times now, I’ve read the question: how was he supposed to make the decision to avoid contact within a split-second? 
 

I’m more interested in this question:

Why was he in such a position in the first place?

The answer given to that question by his would-be defenders would be:

Trying to affect a smother. 

In my view, his case begins to crumble at this point.

    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

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
