AFL tribunal caved in to media pressure to clear Maynard. Shows the power of propaganda. 

You dont quite get it i suspect.  No disrespect. 

It's all a con.   All rigged.

Don't think so. It would be an admission that the current rules are not enough to protect the head and that the game is changing.

Terrible look for the AFL regardless of the legality.

The next time we play the pies and some Collingwood player ‘tests’ out JVR’s jaw with their elbow, then I trust you’ll be all there saying whatever injury that happens is fair retribution and supporting Collingwood supporters pointing to his suspension is as why he deserves it. 

They’ve literally done this to our players every time we play them. Not once have I seen our players retaliate. 

Maybe they should, because clearly the AFL says it’s all fair game. 

I believe in karma and I believe that they’ll get what they deserve. Will I cry about it? No I won’t.

Can the Melbourne Football Club launch an injunction at the Supreme Court? Test this [censored] decision at court? 

Suggest not. We have to refocus on this Friday, the whole club.

Dream of 12, and it's Yippee, Yahoo. 2023 and number 14.

At this point of the season, the MFC could not possibly have a better reason and motivation to take the Premiership. Do it for Gus and 1000 'unseen' hits to Max's head.

Has anyone on here read the findings. This line.

Brayshaw could’ve executed his kick in a different direction or in a different manner, landed in a different manner or in a slightly different location.

Yep, as I suspected, they don't understand the biomechanics of kicking the ball straight with the right foot when on the run

Maynard did and that's how he was able to clean up Gus

If the AFL does appeal, they need to bring some understanding of the kicking habits to the tribunal.  Will they do that?  I doubt it

Incompetent fools but most of all, the boys club mentality has been upheld

I think we need to start a poll. Did anyone here genuinely think there would be a different outcome tonight? I spoke to a number of Collingwood acquaintances during the week (I don't call any of the mates anymore) and said I was 100% sure he would get off. After all, the AFL and Collingwood have prior form. I just realized, was there a book being run on this? I don't think sports bet would have been up for it.

The victim blaming is SO pathetic that I truly hope that if Gus does choose to retire that in a press conference he says that the AFL left him no choice. They have done nothing to ensure I am protected from cheap shots by pure thugs. And since they won’t protect me I have to protect myself.  See you in court.

The AFL has just set a precedent so the simple answer is just run at the man jump and pretend to smother, green light all round.

I reckon it's more straight line the ball and the player is collateral damage. Duty of care is out the door in a football act. No More tackles, to risky for a chance of suspension. Those rucks are going to be dangerous places to tread. Where the ball is, missiles are coming through.

if melbourne and collingwood play in the grandfinal you a likely to see a bloodbath AFL, is that what you want. you dont think melbourne players will not go after maynard, after what he did to one of them and got off, and you dont think collingwood will stop doing what they are doing, cox will go crazy with that knee and foot into everyone in range. god what a hopeless, gutless bunch the afl is.

Gotta brace for the fact the Collingwood Army is worth 3 goals and the club is 2 wins from the flag. 

That's exactly where my mind is at.

I know there's a lot of emotions right now but it's going to get a whole lot worse when there's a camera at Brayden Maynard potentially holding up a premiership medal by the way things are falling into place for the pies.

I can't think of a game where losing last week to the pies will be our 'what if' moment. A missed opportunity just gone begging and now it's the hard road to the top.

Meanwhile pies get an easy run straight to the granny.

Might open a very big can of worms.

AFL might have tripped up.

There will be many a party  gobsmacked and seething.

 

You're right, Beelzebub. Kozzie got two weeks earlier this year for jumping/bumping, and he didn't put a bloke to sleep for a minute. The AFL has created a monster now. We all saw the way Maynard lowered his right shoulder and aimed for Gus's head. Anyone trying to avoid a collision, or soften the impact, would have put his hands out and try to push the other person away. I think Goody should tell all Dee players to use their elbows next week and aim at Carlton heads right through the game. No-one will be punished! It's simple. Unless, of course, only the Swans and the Pies are untouchable during finals time. That may be the case. But I think we should test the water by sending someone out to create some havoc and show that the Dees won't stand for the continual abuse handed out to their captain and the rest of the team. I'm really [censored].   We have to win this year. Full stop.   🔵🔴🔵

Absolutely agree. Theatre by the AFL but he was never going to be found guilty. It was a weak effort by Woods backed up by Gleeson. They quite frankly want Collingwood in the GF .

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. 

I've disagreed with you on many fronts @Superunknown but i reckon I'm done after this year also.

Better things to spend my $550 a year reserved seating membership on than watching absolutely thuggery in front of my eyes.

Soccer Australia and their hierarchy must be rubbing their hands with glee the amount of young kids that will be heading towards the world game via their parents after this decision.

Hamish Brayshaw hit the nail right on the head the AFL want Collingwood in the GF with Carlton.

This is only the first domino to fall, Martin will get off with a fine also.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
