JVR gets a week and disgraceful tribunal lets Maynard off. Tells you all you need to know about the thugs  running the AFL, not to mention their goons and cheer squad in the media. Bring on class actions and get these glass box execs into a courtroom where they can  defend their  "footy actions" in a public forum.

I'm glad I moved to Byron Bay where no one gives a [censored] about AFL and I can forget about football for a while. 

Oh that reminds me of Uncle Byron Pickett. And I thought we had moved on but we haven’t.

Melbourne player suspended.

Collingwood?  No worries.

100% corruption in all major sports around the world but for different reasons.

We all new this was the likely outcome.

The media will back the AFL 100%.

Theyre all corporate people .

This marathon tribunal will be forgotten very quickly.

Finals start again in 4 days.

Brace for impact.

I’m the same (and nearby, just past Bangalow en route to Lismore). There’s a few of us Dees around.

This makes familial relations hard given in laws are all Pies as is wife

 I’m done with this sport. So disheartening. Emailing Pert.

Really starting to question whether I can be bothered following this competition any more. So disillusioned with the double standards to the point of corruption where the power brokers in the AFL manipulate everything from the draw to the tribunal outcomes to maximise profits. This is a prime example.

Feel sorry for the 12,000+ schoolkids who will get poleaxed next season 

I just cant fathom this.

Weve been beaten up on again by a bunch of thugs and fully sanctioned by the AFL including several other incidents in that game.

Incompetent or else they were drawing out all their arguments against which to appeal 

What would Occam say?

It was a stunningly poor prosecution.  Gleeson is often like a ferret after a rabbit ... but not tonight.  Soft as butter

If you were trying to lose you couldn't have done a better job of it

They should appeal but judging by tonight's effort, is that going to happen?

Suspect we'll see some rule changes next season.

 

For me this was the point of the joint referral by Kane and Christiansen. Under the current rules a player does not owe a duty of care to another player, which was tested in the Van Rooyen / Ballard report. I think the AFL knew the report would not be upheld but needed to put it through the process and will change the rules going into next season.

ZERO respect for the AFL now. They were losing all credibility before this but this is last straw for me. No integrity whatsoever. Players welfare, integrity of the comp matters zero to them. As long as the media and cash machine keeps chugging along. Go and get stuffed

[censored] off Howe. You feel sorry for that thug??? Oh my god. You’re a bigger piece of [censored] than I thought you were. How about feeling sorry for Gus? What a despicable person you are. 

Howe is a scumbag, shown his colours since joining the filth

It’s done. Laws will be changed in the off season to ensure this act is penalised going forward.

I disagree with the verdict but we need to move on. The team have a huge game and can’t afford to dwell on this.

I really hope Gus is ok. My thoughts are with him.

And I hope Maynard gets his comeuppance someday. Can't stand the bloke.

May as well have brought JVR to the tribunal seeing the tribunal will be throwing cases out like hard rubbish.

Nothing surer than Martin being free to play.

Your right, it's pardons a plenty.

I'm am piss3d off. Imagine how Gus's family and mates and he feels.

However frustrated you and I feel, wishing physical harm on a player is not called for. 
 

Reverse the roles an imagine what you would say if other teams wished harm on one of our players

They did. They cheered and chanted at him whilst being carried off. 
I know where you’re coming from but the outcome isn’t just.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    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

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
