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.

Didn’t knock him out, surprisingly broke his nose but appeared unintentional contact. Probably should have got the same as Heeney - both off or both one week.

My bad. I thought he was subbed out after failing the HIA?

Yes he was diagnosed with concussion and will miss 12 days/2 games as mandatory precaution. Don’t think he lost consciousness though.

1. Let’s not forget a similar action fractured Mays cheekbone and he didn’t plant for a couple of weeks.

2. This get ms a week and I hate to bring it up again, but Maynard get zilch. [censored] how putrid is this game becoming. It’s a freaking laughing stock.

Also, where was the Charlie Cameron "never been suspended" rule here?

This is my entire issue with how ridiculous that decision was. Heeney is a more important player, with a cleaner record than Cameron, but he doesn’t get the rule applied to him?

It hasn’t been applied since, and probably never will again. What an absolute joke.

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

Both but definitely the latter.

The front on video shows it was accidental light head contact, after a deflection from Webster’s hand.

You can bet if he'd gotten off there would be just as many on here bemoaning the fact.

Your point? That people do disagree?  

Personally, I haven't made up my mind (probably because I can't be bothered - there are plenty of other MRO decisions which are so blatantly wrong/biased that I don't have the energy to engage with this one).

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 😇

SHOCKING 🤮

It's not very often I agree with you PF but 100% on this one. The inconsistency is breathtaking.

Zac Butters and Toby Greene are both repeat offenders for whacking opponents in the stomach but that's ok as long as nobody gets hurt. Just fine them. It won't happen but I'd love one of these two to finish second in the Brownlow behind Heeney and therefore win it. Fairest and Best?

Surely the AFL conspiracy theory narrative has him getting off - Brownlow to a northern state team, or at a minimum a gripping night at the Brownlow.

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

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.

If a bloke is tagging and scragging then he leaves himself open to getting wacked especially when his head position changed. (again a Brayshaw issue vs West Coast where there was some doubt about "shifting targets"

Gus wasn't tagging anyone and did not get protected.

He said sorry, and he is a good bloke, what more,  The vision of Blood coming from the other guys nose well, he was a wimp, should have got up and kept playing   clearly only a love tap,

Webster did slip and faceplant into the turf unrelated to any impact. 

100% certain were the “assailant” named Daicos (or Cripps) there would be “benefit of the doubt” nothing to see here.

Christian used to appear on TV with his deadpan stare justifying either the charge or the exoneration - does he still do this?  Every time I saw him I thought he just looked as thick as ……

    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

    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
