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.

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.

    BACK TO BASE CAMP by Meggs

    Congratulations to the Brisbane Lions.   Undefeated in all 6 matches against the top teams (North Melbourne, Adelaide, Geelong, and Melbourne). They are worthy winners of the 2023 AFLW premiership.   Our ambition for a Season 8 back-to-back premiership was derailed.   In round 6 Adelaide spilled the beans on the template to outplay us. From there news spread fast to other top teams who applied similar intense physical pressure at the source which crushed our gameplan to execute vi

    PODCAST: Jason Taylor Interview

    I'm interviewing the Melbourne Football Club Recruitment Manager Jason Taylor early next week on the Demonland Podcast. I'll be asking him about moving up the draft order, our new recruits (both Draftees and Trades), Daniel Curtin, our recent recruits who have yet to play a senior game, who he thinks will be the next Judd McVee and more. If you have any further questions let me know below and I'll see if I can squeeze them in. I will release the podcast either Monday or Tuesday.

    TOO LITTLE TOO LATE by Meggs

    It was a hot afternoon at IKON where the ferocious Cats came to play, had read the manual on how to beat us and the Demons were unable to match them for the first three quarters.     With physical pressure, they took the game on with relative ease and though our resistance seemed better than the previous two weeks it was still not good enough.     Within the opening minute, Kate Hore marks within range, but her shot was a miss-kick, like a fat iron, and it kinda set a flat tone f

    TURNAROUND by Meggs

    Following successive comprehensive defeats by fellow Top Four heavyweights the Demons play down a division this Sunday against the highly promising Cats.     Strangely, no games against the Cats for five seasons and now we play them twice in one season.     With the blueprint on how to defeat the Dees available on the dark web the real question is, will we crumble again under the finals pressure cooker or will we rediscover our #DemonSpirit and execute a turnaround?   Mak

    THE SECRET IS OUT by Meggs

    We were expecting that after last week’s comprehensive defeat by Brisbane, our coach Mick Stinear would have his charges coming out breathing finals fire. Instead, it was North who had the aggression, the numbers, who blocked our scoring avenues and rendered us impotent, unable to match the Kangas during any phase of the match.   Darren Crocker, the North coach, later highlighted that how to beat Melbourne is no secret following recent losses to Adelaide and Brisbane and now North.
