Further evidence that the inconsistences of this Basket Case Russian Roulette of a system is a disgrace. NO WAY HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN CONVICTED. I Feel for the young superstar 😇

I agree.

If he was Cripps or Daicos he wins.

Webster went low and Heeney appears to try and push away his arm, as he said in his evidence.

It’s a light blow and he doesn’t deserve to be put out of a Brownlow for a light blow that was never, ever, an offence when the Brownlow was first awarded.

Modern offences should be re classified as to whether they constitute being unfair as per the Brownlow criteria.

What happened to the “ good guy “ defence?

Over his career Heeney has shown himself to be a very fair player.  That in all probability it costs him a Brownlow seems an incredibly high price to pay for what is really incidental contact.  If Webster's nose didn't bleed there was absolutely nothing to see there. I'd be surprised is this was the intended outcome of the rule change. I hope they challenge this and bring in the Carlton lawyers.

I just had a first look at this freeze framing as much as I could.

Webster and Heeny were grappling - a one eyed Swan could even think that Henry should have received a holding off the play free - and it also looked like Webster face planted the ground as he slipped and fell.

Also, where was the Charlie Cameron "never been suspended" rule here?  Was Cameron cleared because of which team his victim played for (severe case of MFCSS here)?  Didn't Heeny  have as good or better record than Cameron who had been I believe charged and fined on multiple priors?

All this just adds to the theory fact that the MRO is absolutely clueless, and seriously compromised (as shown with the fine for chest pushing that unmentionable Collingwood player who then dived far worse than May the previous week).

He smashed him in the face, oops! Yeah right, deserves more, love how people say it’s an accident :/

Read the report of the Tribunal.

” Front on vision shows Webster bending forward lowering his head, the first contact was to Webster’s hand and then the side of Heeney’s hand was deflected to a glancing blow to Webster’s nose”.

That is not a suspension or unfairness that should rule you out of a Brownlow.

This offence didn’t exist when “best and fairest” was coined for the Brownlow.

Would Cripps or Daicos have been found guilty?

But I do think given how easy it is these days to get a 1 week suspension they need to review the brownlow rules. Getting a one week suspension now doesn’t mean you aren’t a ‘fair’ player

Would have thought the AFL Gestapo would have wanted Heeney to be cleared, given the benefits of having a Brownlow medallist in Sydney. 

Like Heeney as a player, feel sorry for him.

He Judo chopped Webster right in the snout.

Actually surprised the AFL’s love child didn't wriggle there way out somehow.

Ahhhh ... surely he can do a Cripps and go for the technicality option.

Or is that only applicable to the Circus's favs (Carlton & the Filth)?

Im glad the Tribunal didn’t fold under the weight of a brownlow chance and an AFL favourite to let him off

Clear week imo

Really classy comparing the afl to the Gestapo.

so are you saying it doesn’t deserve a week or you think the brownlow rules should be changed back?

Webster was holding him back from leading to the contest. Heeney swung his arm back below shoulder level to break the hold. Webster had slipped down hence the high contact. No way Heeney would have known his head was there.

Not a fan of the suspension.

Don't care about the Brownlow. Don't care much about Heeney either.

Wouldn’t be surprised if they still get the medal in Sydney.

Heeney’s pretty unlucky here but unless the backs can spoil like the 90s, stray backhands from forwards won’t be tolerated either. 
i’m still getting my head around Zerk-Thatcher not being suspended for knocking out Naughton, but I can’t be bothered looking for a replay. Good to see there can still be accidents I guess.

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    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

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a

    HEAVENS ABOVE by Molly Melbourne

    Who said the football gods and scoreboard attendants at the MCG don’t have a sense of humour? The gods spent a whole week teasing Demon and Bomber fans alike about Saturday night’s game. About how the entire match would be dominated by the hulking, brooding figures of 205cm Sam Draper and his 2IC Peter Wright lapping it up in the absence of Melbourne skipper and the club's No.1, No 2, No 3 and No 4 ruckman Max Gawn in the wake of that ankle injury. They painted pictures of Simon Goodwin ne

    It’s game day and the Demons face a massive test which may determine whether they have what it takes to play finals this season. The task has been made all the more difficult without their Premiership Captain Max Gawn.
