    I know he chose to bump so the result is his responsibility, but it is Dangerfield.

    The tribunal option is simply to allow the MRO to bypass a decision.
    Yes it was incidental head contact but there are 2 factors working against him:
    1. He chose to bump instead of tackle
    2. He left the ground to perform the bump. This usually means high contact will be made.

    Last season, Danger gets off no question even though those 2 factors mean he shouldn't.
    But with all the renewed attention around concussions this season there's no way the AFL can let him off. He should get 3 weeks. Because it's Danger he'll most likely get 1.

    Yep, AFL is so optics focussed, they won't let Danger off scot free but because of his name he also won't be getting the maximum 3 week penalty. I agree that the tribunal will find him guilty but will downsize the penalty to 1 week.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Danger should have actually got his 3 week suspension in the GF.

    His raised elbow to Vlaustin had much more intent but was not even cited.

    Spot on.

    Knocked Vlaustin out cold with an intentional raised elbow. Unlike most of this board I like Dangerfield, but he got away with that one. He can't get away with this one.

    2 weeks.

    2 weeks. Serious enough to be a statement, but not too harsh
    I should leave it alone but you're not right

    I think that will be the outcome.

    You might be right but I think it's a week underdone. The week the competition brings in an injury sub particularly because of concussion, a player is knocked out and will very likely miss a couple of weeks himself. The first suspension sets the benchmark for the balance of the season.

    I bet the AFL were spewing that the first opportunity they had to make an example wasn’t with a peasant but none other than the king himself.

    If the AFL is at all serious about minimising concussion in the game - then he has to get 3. He had other options open to him and chose to collect Kelly with force and with a bump.

    The incident in the grand final was completely different and didn't deserve suspension. This one, is cleaning up a player who was vulnerable as he was kicking the ball, and he could have gone lower and got the torso, or he could have tackled.

    there are rules on the bump and will depend on whether the grading is severe (3 weeks), or unintentional (2 weeks ). MRO has graded it severe, so will be up to tribunal.

    Agreed I reckon it will be 3.
