    Sherman banned for vilification



    WESTERN Bulldogs forward Justin Sherman will spend four weeks in the VFL after he admitted he had racially vilified an unnamed opposition player during Saturday's clash with Gold Coast.

    AFL football operations manager Adrian Anderson said the two parties had been part of a conciliation meeting and it was determined that:

    A matter between Western Bulldogs player Justin Sherman and a Gold Coast Suns player was conciliated and settled. Player Sherman admitted he had racially vilified an opposition player and he apologised to the Suns' player;

    Justin Sherman will attend an education program under the guidelines of the player rules under rule 30 covering racial and religious vilification;

    Justin Sherman has agreed that he will serve a four-match suspension to cover rounds 15-18 of the 2011 Toyota AFL Premiership Season. He may play at VFL level during that period;

    Justin Sherman will make a donation of $5000 to the charity nominated by the Gold Coast Suns:

    The Gold Coast Suns player accepted Sherman’s apology and said the other outcomes of the conciliation, as outlined above, were acceptable to him to conclude this matter;

    No person involved in the conciliation agreement, the AFL, the Western Bulldogs FC or the Gold Coast Suns FC may publicly identify the Gold Coast player involved

Someone who is found to take drugs gets a 3 strike policy and is hidden away so know one will find out but yet if you call someone a name it warrants a harsher penalty that deliberately knocking someone out on the field or shooting up cocaine.

    I'm against racially vilifying someone but thinks it's far to much of a penalty.

    I'm glad he has gone public to stop all the speculation. the Suns forum had said it was Callan Ward.

    Re: Sherman gets 4 weeks

    What I can't figure out is ......... we have a number of indigenious guys at the club now. How can he not know that it is wrong? I mean, I know in the heat of battle, etc., but surely players have figured out how to sledge another player without crossing the boundaries of racial intolerance?
    Yay! Jono's back! The dynamic duo are back together again.......

    Agree.

    This penalty is a bloody disgrace.

    Yup, or even giving someone an elbow behind play & you only get 2 weeks!

    I'm glad I'm not alone. He'll be vilified for the rest of his career now. IMO that is penalty enough.
