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.

One can only dream.

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.

Collingwood (millions of supporters) and the Swans (millions of AFL investment) are untouchable at finals time. It's like Trump. They could kill an opponent and wouldn't get prosecuted.

I personally can’t wait for Steven May’s kung fu smother on Curnow on Friday night

*a note for all the precious souls: I love Curnow and am not advocating our players take out any Carlton player. This is a [censored] take. Thank you

Let’s see if Laura Kane has the balls to put this boys club farce of a league in its place. 

Laura already protected the AFL by making sure it goes to the wink wink independent tribunal. i doubt she’ll care now

Nope, had him gone for 4 weeks.

But I'm not one bit surprised he got off.

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.

Yes. I know we gotta play it week at a time but i cant see us beating Collingwood if we make it without Grundy now. If we dont they will bash, knee, punch Gawn out of the game with nothing to lose. I always hoped Preuss would have progressed with us and been the battering ran to compliment Gawns brillance. Now i would put it to Grundy to play the game/ games of his life and give Gawny a clear path in forward half to chb.

Done.  YOU AFL are a bunch of power hungry, self entitled crooks.  I will make it my life mission to ensure you get as little of my money as possible from now on.   I will continue to buy my demons membership, you have my money for Friday nights ticket, but that is it.  I will BYO everything to every game.  I will no longer buy a cent of AFL branded merchandise.  I  will make my own demons gear (my kids will freakin hate me more than they already do!).  I will make a cash donation to my club instead.  FAFF OFF!

Ok cool.

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. 
 

I don’t agree with this call, I don’t like that Cox did that to Maxy, but maintain a bit of dignity and be better than dog Collingwood supporters? 

 

Jadeds post was wishing (its implicit in the statement ‘test out that mangled arm’) Howe physical harm, that’s not on. 

After the result of Tonight’s hearing, “everything is on”

We have a Player who was knocked out cold, in the first minute of the game, who may not play again. 
And the opponent is free to play on….

It is “on” now. This disgrace will not be forgotten

She’ll care when Anita Frawley brings Gus as her witness in her litigation against the AFL won’t she?

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.

 

 

Yegads! I didn’t know I was disagreeable!

Each to their own.

Id run through the bastards.

Im not sure you understand this game, what is involved...the tactics used, the instructions  given.

Are you naive enough to think a ridiculous event that took out a prima-player ...just happened  ??

You think Cox jumping into Max is just...footy-stuff ( well actually it is..ironically  ).

Its a a very physical game.. its not for the faint hearted.  It can get very argy bargy... but even with all that...there's a line.

They crossed it   Quite frankly [censored] them.

Let’s calm down. There won’t be a bloodbath. And I suspect the AFL is not necessarily that happy with this outcome. They prosecuted for a suspension and lost. Suspect the new Footy GM was keen on a sanction for a blatant head high hit but didn’t get her way. Further up at CEO/Board Level they may be just happy they could, via the Tribunal, wash their hands of any of the head trauma liability that is coming their way.

Once again, our club lives on its knees.

Our clubs been hard as nails about this. We haven't taken a single backward step. We've leaked to the media. We've made our voice very well heard.

This is purely on the AFL.

My 3 thoughts on a very disappointing day:

1. the rules read as if they were written by monkeys and are certainly administered by monkeys

2. this will have negative impacts ( no pun intended ) including participation

3. opening line of class action case "Your honour, this sport allows this ( play Maynard thuggery )". Game over.

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. 

Ok no worries then, Carte Blanche on wishing players harm then.

Hope Brayshaw sues the AFL.

They’ve said they think it’s ok to KO players by running into them after a smother attempt.

AFL have failed their duty of care. 

Hope he goes for millions in compo, they made their bed the AFL.

I spoke to Troy Simmons about this 2 weeks ago. He said Long would get 12 weeks if he did that now. Most importantly he is in fine nick and looks fit enough to play for the Dees today. Troy goes to the same gym - nice bloke.

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
