2018 MRP and Tribunal


#81

1 week for the sicily knee drop - just fark off afl.


#82

“free kick Hawthorn”


#83

Just 2 players scrambling as Selwood trying to get up according to Ralph.

I tend to think there is a duty of care not to kneel on a players head.

It’s nice to see the spirit of Sam Mitchell is alive and well at the Hawks.


#84

I know it technically wasn’t right, and is “Not a good look”, … but Duckwood grabbed hold of his leg as he tried to get up and get going and Sicily just went “alright cokk, … cop this”, … and I for one applauded the effort at the time.


#85

This wasn’t pinning a guy down with his knee; this was a knee drop to the temple.

As intentional high contact, that means it was rated as low impact (others options are medium, high, and severe). The System™ ranks it the same as a jumper punch, despite there being a lot more risk to it.

Obviously he’s not going to contest it and get 2 weeks instead.


#86

Don’t get any extra weeks for contesting it anymore. Club just has to pay a $10k “levy” to Gil’s polo club


#87

Is there a 2018 table, or did they just remove all the higher penalties?


#88

l have no love for Duckwood, but it is a weak act to knee a player while they are on the ground, even more so to the head. Sicily is bit of a goon, so 1 week sounds about right.


#89

I thought, if the other bloke is concussed, you would get a week. Obviously not.


#90

Generally head clashes are not sanctioned because it is clearly accidental and both players hit their heads.


#91

I thought it was, if you chose to bump instead of tackle then you are responsible for any head clash that may result.


#92

Common sense prevailed with the Burton hit


#93

Looking forward to this exact same occurrence given a suspension later in the year.


#94

The Sicily stomp


#95

Surely a fine will suffice?


#96

Wow.
Another waste of time.
I thought a stomp would actually be a stomp, not gingerly placing his foot on the guy’s leg.
Not sociable, but nor is it as bad as half the stuff that goes on in packs.
Give the guy a fine and move on.


#97

I have to put my foot down and say that’s not on.


#98

You don’t want to see underagers stomping gingerly, could be worth a week.


#99

You mean you’d like to put your foot down, ,. yeah?


#100

How long did Cess get for standing on Platten? This was deliberate, uncalled for and he’s an ugly ranga with a shyte attitude.

12 weeks

Not sure how Mitchell got off
