  • 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.


Maynard must get at least four weeks


leave it to deever

The Football Act....

Ihle (Collingwood): Maynard was entitled to come forward off his player, he was entitled to jump when he saw Brayshaw about to kick.

No, not jump at Gus, jump at the ball.

If he had done that, then he would have gone across the path and lower of Gus.

There was an intention to collide as he braced, and the biomech expect, said his brace must be premeditated.

Just watched CH10 news, some biomechanics expert said

 Once he's airborne, he's essentially a projectile. He's like a frisbee with arms and legs.

So, how did he become airborne? He jumped. It is completely his own actions that caused this event. It was a dangerous act that cannot be allowed to go unpunished. I just wish all the Pies supporters and media people would admit that you don't judge the event from the moment before impact, you judge it from the moment that Maynard decided to jump forward towards a  defenseless player.

That is exactly correct. 1000% agree. Why aren't the AFL arguing on that basis? They seem to be letting Collingwood define the argument.

Defenseless player is it.

Acts of footy such as marking and spoiling, the players are aware of contact.

When kicking the ball, your body is open, not much you can do to mitigate the impact. The entire collision and its outcome is determined by the one without the ball.

Basic umpiring, protect the player with the ball, nether alone the Tribunal, as it must stamp this out.

Not sure I get your point. Gus was the defenseless player. Maynard decided to jump towards him.

Maynard will be exonerated on Appeal. This is my best legal analysis and not shared by a second lawyer on this thread, so you should all hope I am wrong.

Objection: speculation.

Looks like he’s gonna get off here. That was a weak submission from the AFL. Pies defense picking it apart now.

These tribunal hearings are some seriously braindead representations. How are these people paid professionals? I feel like a first year uni student can mount a better case than these clowns!

Of course, Gus is the defenseless one, and ball carrier.

Number 4 was the instigator of the collision. 

I've always heard the umpires saying they protect the person with the ball, time for the Tribunal do do that.

It goes how the AFL wants it to go. 
Maybe it’s a weak case because they know he will appeal and get off. Perhaps they don’t want to deal with the fall out of suspending a Pies player ahead of finals. 
 

In the end the AFL always gets what it wants. Until it gets dragged into a real court and the AFL loses billions of dollars.

It is not careless to protect yourself from a hit, it is careless to hurl yourself at a player or a contest in the way Maynard did. That wasn’t really argued which I dont understand.

I understand fans of certain clubs can let their passion get in the way of a little empathy but caring more about whether their player gets suspended or not over the welfare of an opposition’s players health whose career might be potentially over is just sad & a tad pathetic if you ask me.

We all love our footy but some fans need to remember it’s just a game at the end of the day.

"Ihle (Collingwood): He's jumped off two legs. That's allowed him to jump higher and it slowed his forward momentum without completely removing it."

Why does he want to jump higher, he needed to go right, if he was playing the ball.

Higher, just has him coming down on Gus with more force.

This is EXACTLY what I’ve been worried about. I keep getting told this is different to Cripps’ outcome so it won’t end the same way. Well, here we are.

Yep, the premeditation here is all from the AFL.

We'll go hard, suspend for 3 weeks but here's a get out of jail card under the table for the appeal. 

Because AFL ❤️ Collingwood.

Because AFL ❤️ controversy

Because AFL ❤️ their broadcast partners and will protect them at all costs.

This league is corrupt and a waste of time.

Do not rejoice at the suspension. It will get overturned.

Channel 7 suggesting pies lawyers will seek an injunction if maynard gets suspended

They'll go through the appeals process first.

If Maynard is suspended, and the appeal is dismissed, they will definitely go to court. Zero doubt about that.

Very considerate of you to get us ready for disappointment.  Perhaps you haven't noticed that most people here think is he guilty but will get off one way or another.  We are well and truly prepared for disappointment without your condescension.

Ihle (Pies) says Maynard's hands go to the right, but his centre of mass does not move to the right. He says at this point a collision is "not inevitable" and "not even likely". It is Brayshaw's movement inward that changes this, he says.

 

 

this is bs maynard literally jumps to the right

Yes, funny about that. Politics ??

And I ask again, why did the media shy away from asking the CEO why the MRO's decision on the day was overruled?

What is going on the the corridors of power closed always to the unwashed?

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS: 2023

    When the dust settled on 2023, the Melbourne Football Club coach Simon Goodwin lamented that the club knew it needed to score more to land a second premiership in the current era. He opined that an average of one more goal per game would have had his charges in football’s stratosphere.  Goodwin was right and, based on his team’s scoring opportunities, that extra goal (and more) was well within its grasp if only they had better converted their shots at goal. Take the side’s last six defeats
