NON-MFC: Round 09



Recommended Posts

Round 13 (KB for us) looms as an absolute cracker jack.

Whoever comes out the other side of that will be sitting fairly pretty.

A number of matches are looking as if they'll be 8 point games.

Need to bank as many wins as poss prior to that round to keep our noses in front.

Puts footy on. Hears Kelli Underwood. Turns footy off. 

Ethan - I just thought I would look at the last 2 minutes of AD v B on the AFL site - and I got Kellie and Derwayyyn.  

I concluded that Derwayyyn was only the second hardest commentator to listen to.  So glad I didn't watch it all or that she hasn't done one of our games yet this season.  Totally unlistenable.

CHRIS SCOTT 

YOU AGAIN SHOWED YOU ARE AN [censored]

YOU WERE WRONG

A DISGRACEFUL RANT 

 

Scott was critical of the decision post-game, but Kane said given Clark's kick had not been to the obvious advantage of the Cats, the umpires had made the correct call in stopping play.

"The umpire's whistle has gone at almost the same time that the player (Clark) has disposed at the ball," Kane said.

"It's worth noting it came off the side of his boot, it was a shanked kick, and the umpire has made the decision to bring that back and give Geelong the shot on goal.

"So we were comfortable with the way it was officiated."

Isn’t the bigger issue here that the AFL has seen fit to actually drive to Geelong today to let him get clarification on all this. I think that is totally inappropriate- if anything he should be getting a “please explain”!!!

Geelong have been cleared of breaching AFL medical protocols, despite the Cats revealing on Saturday that key forward Jeremy Cameron had been diagnosed with delayed concussion from a heavy head knock on Friday night.

Cameron was allowed to play out Friday night’s clash against Port Adelaide after landing heavily during a marking contest and slamming his head into the GMHBA Stadium turf.

 

Star Cat Jeremy Cameron was diagnosed with delayed concussion on Saturday. GETTY IMAGES

But the big Cat reported concussion symptoms during tests on Saturday morning and will miss next Thursday night’s clash against Gold Coast in Darwin.

Several commentators questioned why Cameron was not taken from the ground on Friday night after he landed on his side and banged his head on the ground in a whiplash motion at the nine-minute mark of a tense last quarter

He lay on his back after the fall, holding his head, before clambering to his feet to take part in the next stoppage.

Geelong medical staff spoke to Cameron on the ground, but the club said on Saturday that he had passed a head injury assessment.

Geelong said Cameron was allowed to play out the final nine minutes of the match, in which the Cats lost by a goal, because he did not report any symptoms and had satisfied all AFL requirements.
 

 

An AFL spokesperson said the league’s medical experts had discussed the incident with Geelong doctors on Saturday morning and were comfortable that Cameron had been managed within the league’s concussion guidelines.

The spokesperson said medical spotters in the ARC had alerted Geelong doctors to Cameron’s fall shortly after the incident, but in the absence of “probable motor incoordination or no protective action” immediate removal of the player for a sport concussion assessment test (SCAT6) was not mandated.

The heavy nature of Cameron’s fall on Friday night, prompted Seven commentator Brian Taylor to say during his call: “He gave his head a real good banging. I reckon the doctors will look at that.”

Fellow commentator Matthew Richardson then added: “As soon as you stay still on the ground for a couple of seconds, that’s a trigger.”

 

Seven boundary rider Abbey Holmes was shocked that Cameron was not taken to the boundary for tests.

“Jeremy Cameron is staying out on the ground,” Holmes said. “It didn’t look good, did it? With his head heavily making contact with the ground.”

Is anyone surprised here. Every week it is clearer and clearer what HQ and the commission want. This is just unbelievable.

So Geelong let a concussed player stay on in a close game, then coach rants about umpiring and they go and visit him to see if they can do anything else for him. Imagine that was Melbourne, we’d have had the book thrown at us twice

Finals together 3 times in 40 years

How are they still called the big 3?

If it’s based on attendance plus success how are the Tigers not included for example?

Time to disband the big 3, clearly success is not a factor to be included

i doubt it. Freo for example will make finals imo

only 8 points between 2nd and 10th

anything can happen

GC and Dogs will keep asking the question 

Cats, Bombers, Port, Giants should slip a bit but not sure how much

Just going by history but will be fascinating to see who might slip. I reckon cats are in trouble

The cats have an incredibly easy draw for the remaining games.  Only the blues fixture is easier.  Bombers and Port have the toughest.

"We take the opportunity to educate our clubs and in turn be educated."

I'm sure the AFL were well and truly educated by that whining pratt.

I pity gold coast who are playing the cats this weekend.

Essendon's next 3 games are winnable though against North, Richmond and GC so they could be top 2 after that!

They could very well do a Bomber nose-dive after that but it's still a site I'd prefer not to see at the midway point.

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    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
