Key Adelaide forward and Coleman Medal leader Taylor Walker will miss the next two rounds after pleading guilty to a rough conduct charge.

Had Walker fought the charge in front of the tribunal and failed, he may have copped a three-match ban.

Taylor Walker was cited for a sling tackle on Geelong’s Harry Taylor. So far the media has assiduously avoided terrible pun headlines like “A Taylor of Two Cities”.

Crows football operations manager Phil Harper said the club thought the punishment too harsh but decided against an appeal.

Meanwhile Geelong’s Joel Carey will pay a $900 fine for giving the finger to an umpire.

Thousands of football fans who attended matches on the weekend should count themselves lucky they weren’t also caught giving the finger to an umpire, but believe you me if they see it happen again nobody will be going on the class excursion to the AFL Hall of Fame and Sensation. Nobody.

The two guilty pleas mean the tribunal will not assemble tonight, but will instead hold a Wiccan feast. Admission one hoggett. Please buy a raffle ticket, proceeds go to fund Swan Neck Deformity awareness.
