MRP - 2019 Same-same, but different


#242

Hawks/Cousins last week.


#243

I reckon that looked a bit worse, but it’s pretty close and pretty recent.

Meh.

Wish our players flew the flag more and went a bit closer to the line to be honest. Nothing stupid, but need to be pushing the limits, and end up with a few that spill over into then MRP


#244

So Gaz has done it again.

This week he will get 1 and it will stay 1 because it’s ok to hit Essendon players.


#245

Agreed. Rookie mistake on his part not to take that into account. He should know better.


#246

Well on his way to the 2019 AGoodes Award for the most booed player in the AFL.
But he will not be suspended. You know that, don’t you?


#247

Ablett has got a habit. Jumping up and hitting a player’s head/neck with elbow/forearm and then being exasperated when the hit player has gone down.

Bad habit indeed.


#248

I know Fyfe will get off his elbow, but there is no way that 2 years ago that is anything less than 2 weeks. Since when has raising the elbow become ok?


#249

Spot on - that was a 2 week hit but watch Fyfe get off with 1 week reduced to 0 if he takes the early guilty plea.


#250

Ablett and Fyfe cleared :rofl::joy::rofl::joy:


#251

naturally, the tribunal made that clear to Michael Christian last week, don’t suspend them for head high contact.


#252

So does that mean our players can now elbow players in the head in a feigned attempt to tackle. This is farcical now.


#253

Meanwhile some norf schmuck gets a week off for a head clash

What a fkn joke


#254

I’d rather Fyfe play.

Having stars out doesnt seem to help us anyway.

See. Selwood and Franklin the past two weeks…


#255

Of course it doesn’t mean that!

The AFL have two levels of rules. One they use to whack teams they don’t like. And another “pragmatic” set that applies to their little darlings.


#256

I believe they found that Ablett deliberately hit him high. Luckily, intent doesn’t matter.


#257

How long before one of our players gets 1-2 weeks for similar incidents which will be glossed over by a compliant media and accepted by a submissive club?


#258

I’m not sure why we even have an MRP / Tribunal, or rules for that matter when the AFL/Umpires just do whatever the ■■■■ they want anyway.

Why don’t we just call it random ball and get a monkey to umpire and randomly blow the whistle and for the MRP get a room full of monkeys to randomly press buttons for who is going to get suspended this week. We will obviously have to remove the big names like Ablett and Fyfe so they don’t accidentally get suspended.
