    To anyone with working eyes Grimes plainly hammed up the severity of the bump looking for an on-field advantage.

    Cox is effectively the scapegoat for the AFEL MRP ballsing up their job from the round prior and suddenly needing to look competent.
    It really is amateur hour isnít it.

    Where is there any common sense in these decisions.

    If the table of sanctions approach continues to produce these type of crazy rigid adjudications they should remove it and go back to a sitting tribunal.

    But what Greene did is wrong, all of them are wrong. It's not in the spirit of the game and Waite was using his feet to climb on a player, Greene was using his feet to "protect his space" so different use cases
    Tim English got pinged for this new ruling in a ruck contest. I am not sure if it has been called elsewhere across the games yet but watching the replay, the action he took doesn't warrant a free. As usual, they'll make a mess of this one, punish incidental acts in the process of getting the ball and turn a blind eye, or play down, dirty, violent acts.

    FEUDING pair Billy Gowers and Jarman Impey have both received fines for their aggressive jabs to each other during Sunday's contest between Hawthorn and the Western Bulldogs.

    Gowers received a free kick after he was struck in the chest by Impey, but dished out a similar retaliation moments later as the pair clashed in a heated encounter at the MCG.

    Impey was hit with a $3000 fine for two fixed financial striking penalties stemming from the fight, while Gowers was slapped with a $1500 fine after being penalised for one strike.

    Dusty gets two plus a fine. It's about right but I would have liked it to be four.
    There are plenty of talented people in the world. As you already know, talent is not enough. Some of the athletes with the most potential never pan out. What separates the good from the great is determination and work ethic.

    Dusty gets it knocked down to one week.
    What a lot of crap.
    If we get any reports we should challenge ever one.

    It's an absolute joke that a player can end up only going for a week for an intentional drive-by elbow.

    The same penalty for an accidental bump to the head in general play. The AFL have lost the plot

    "He's just got to take a breath. He's a very, very good player. He gets the treatment because that's what he is, so he's just got to go past it and we need to help him a bit with it.

    "It would be nice if he did get a couple of extra free kicks, but he's got a week off which is disappointing for us. But in two weeks' time, we'll be back at it."

    Kennedy, the victim of the clash on Saturday afternoon, was called to provide evidence during the 90-minute hearing, saying that Martin's forearm initially made contact with the middle of his shoulder before glancing towards his head.

    The Giants player said the fact the strike eventually hit him in his head gave him "a bit of a shock" and laughed as he described the force of the contact as "a good knock".

    However, he also crucially said that he didn't feel any pain as a result of the strike.

    Field umpire Nathan Williamson, who laid the report, was also called to give evidence and revealed Kennedy told him he was "fine" and that he didn't believe the strike was malicious.

    JJ says hello Dusty, get over it.
    What about intent, the elbow was raised to horizontal for high contact he could have kept it low as he went pass and it also make Michael Christian look like he doesn't know his job. (Which he doesn't)

    I've just looked at the footage of the Jesse Hogan bump that cost him a $2000 fine.

    I'm gobsmacked.

    Liberatore charged by MRO

    Western Bulldogs midfielder Tom Liberatore has been charged by the MRO. Liberatore was charged with rough conduct against Fremantle’s Michael Walters in the clubs’ round six clash at Optus Stadium.
    The incident occurred in the first quarter of the match.
    Liberatore can accept a $2000 sanction with an early plea. The incident was assessed as intentional conduct with low impact and body contact, and classified as a $3000 sanction as a first offence which is reduced to $2000 with an early plea.
    This is utter Bullshit. Fyfe gets away with smacking Richards in the face with an elbow and Libba just pushes Walters to the ground.
