well it's off to the appeals board

more publicity for afl and it's media partners

He’ll get off. 
 

I don’t believe in MRO/Tribunal penalties until the player has ‘actually’ missed a game. 
 

AFL only wanted four days of being able to say they are making the game safer. They will fold and accept the overturn on Thurs night, and they won’t appeal the appeal. 
 

it is the way.

Heeney clips Webster's nose grappling in a contest, gets a week but Pendlebury smashed his hand into Neale's stomach with significant force, with intent, and off the ball but just a fine? Can't see the intent by Heeney, careless at most.

Heeney needs to go to the “Tom Hawkins School of Accidental Contact.”

Did he plead the "Football Act" defence?

100% agree. 

As sure as night follows day it will be overturned!

Can't believe so many ppl fall for the AFL circus claptrap so often.

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.

Heeny swung his arm with enough force to almost break Websters nose. Intent has been removed from the tribunal system and rightly so because it’s impossible to prove or disprove. All that matters is the outcome. Head high contact in today’s game is unacceptable and he got suspended.

The rulings and laws must change. So that it is the outcome of your acts that are then applied to give penalties. 

no football acts

no good guys 

no history.

no I am sorry. Have some chocolate and booze. 
 

basically, if you do the crime you do the time.   Lawyers will still try and change tribunal rulings. The AFL needs to tighten its playing laws.

full time umpires 

and an unbiased  tribunal review officer would both help

Should be overturned.  If anyone was reckless it was his opponent.  Scragged him then lowered his face to just behind the hand that he was scrragging with.  Heeney tries to smack his hand away and his face is behind where his scragging hand is.

No case to answer.

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?

You KNOW the answer re Cripps and untouchable man!

Cripps got off on a legal technicality based on the wording of the charge against him - blame the lawyers getting involved ....

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.

Surely the defence should have tried it. “ The good bloke card”

I hope he gets off but again it makes a mockery of the reporting/tribunal process his suspension is overturned.

Ban is upheld 

Nice to see the AFL not play favourites with superstars and the Swans for once. 

Agree… no way he was ever going to get off with a smack to the face with enough force to gush blood

You mean Daicos? Wasn't it Michael Christian threatening to stand down if Maynard was suspended?

Seem to be the odd one out, but I'm ok with this suspension. Heeney didnt need to swing his arm. 

Fair call, but why wasn’t Pendlebury Suspended earlier 

Don’t get me started on Maynard, the consistency of the Tribunal is non existent

Guessing Carlton's lawyer represented the AFL? It's all about Naicos or Cripps winning the Brownlow. Not Bont.

    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
