    Maynard cleared by tribunal for Brayshaw collision

    I'm not even going to try to predict what the verdict will be. But I suspect there will be a Finals and biggest Melbourne team discount. To my eye it looked a lot like a rugby union charge down where the blocker comes from a long way, goes up, then accidentally on purpose takes out the kicker.

    Ollie Lord not cited by MRO

    Just doing the Lord's work :tongueoutv1: I heartily agree with the intent being the base, and injury a multiplier. Intent to strike, anywhere; connect high, add; injure add more.

    Tackling the tackling issue, how do we resolve the issue?

    umpire should have showed duty of care and whistled it a tackle with HTB

    Berry on Oliver

    Why did Oliver even point at his eye after he got up? Was he trying to change a decision? The ball was already far down the field.

    Rules Score Review (ARC) Thread - Lions v Tigers Elimination

    That's besides the point :laughv1: It's all about conspiracies. How many threads have been started based on that? BTW I believe it's true. The AFL hate RFC, the whole world hates RFC, God hates RFC, the patrons at the Restaurant at the End of Universe who were watching the game, hate RFC. Even...

    Head High Contact - Worth it for a Free Kick?

    This is why, once the novelty wears off, Aussie Footy won't grow internationally. Too many WTFs about why a penalty was called or not. An outside wouldn't have a clue.

    "Stand" Rule and mark movement

    Even the most intelligent professional athletes in other sports have similar spoken commands from the officials. It keeps that particular part of their game from getting messed with or time wasted. Look at union scrums. They have a very controlled procedure each time. It's no big deal. Players...

    Duck and Lift!!!

    IMHO his intent was to make him earn the free. They are aware of Ginnivan's techniques and its often very hard to instantaneously compensate for them. So I think he just went made it a hard free, like a defended giving an ear massage when they have no chance at a spoil. Only problem, JG wasn't...

    Duck and Lift!!!

    Ginnivan probably would have got the free in that instance if he had got his arm earlier in an attempt to deflect or knock away the tackler's. That would have showed an attempt at evasion. Redman should have been pinged for rough conduct and fined for the extra bit. Pendlebury has been diving...

    Concussion protocols and finals

    I agree. This could just compound the issue. Any consequences, unfortunately would have to be post-game like it already is. A reform could be done in the severity of the sanction. IF they could determine that it was intentional (I know, I know), they a massive ban would be in order, maybe even...

    TBH I think they knew Stanley had a sore knee and were anticipating subbing him sometime up to halftime.

    Head High Contact - Worth it for a Free Kick?

    One of the salient things I am getting from this thread is that professional footy players are too stupid to start to protect their heads when the umps start calling them on playing for frees. They are demonstratively clever enough to see the tackle coming and position their shoulder and arm...

    Head High Contact - Worth it for a Free Kick?

    Adjudicating the arm raisers will be relatively easy. Some, like Ginnie, were starting the raise before the tackler's arm was near contacting. A harder question is, what about Pendlebury's? He done that exact move before. A couple steps before contact, gathering the ball and going straight...

    Head High Contact - Worth it for a Free Kick?

    exactly, the first two went straight to the neck. The third one on the boundary started just below point of shoulder and got pushed high. In all of them Ginnivan's hand went up. He's trained for it so hard, it's reflexive.
