If the Eagles want to defend this then they need to look at previous incidents that were not charged. If there are none have to take the week unfortunately

From the afl site
'The incident was classified as careless conduct with medium impact and high contact and caused Smith to sit out the remainder of the contest.'

I wonder if Christian knows this or just read the afl article
No need to wonder! This is the same guy who, when giving Nicnat a week's suspension last year, stated that both arms of the Port player had been pinned in the tackle, even though the vision showed that one arm was free.

Because it was an incident that was always going to face MRO scrutiny due to the fact that Jetta made the guy slam his head.

Take your tin foil hat off and open both eyes.

They are both open thanks. He was playing five minutes later.

Why don’t you go over to the Melbourne board where you belong.

I forgot that every single decision an umpire makes is correct and sacrosanct.

The umpire made the wrong decision. Should’ve been a free kick against Jetta for a dangerous tackle.

But still a first don’t you agree?

Seems harsh to suspend a player for what the umpire said was fair. Good grounds for a challenge.

I distinctly recall BT saying Smith came back on during the commentary. Entirely possible he got players mixed up again so I’ll have to go back to the replay to see if it was smith
I believe it was a similar situation to Amon last year, Smith came back on initially and then had to come back off due to late onset.

Noise of affirmation from the Vic media against a "no name" definately contributes imo. As does the Melbourne coach saying his player was concussed .....despite the prick playing him 5 minutes later for the rest of the game.
Think Amon came back on after the Natanui tackle.
Made no difference then, unfortunately.
Also it is unfortunate that the system is a mess with little or no communication and understanding between the MRP, the Umps and the players
There are now constant arguments and issues raised every week. eg. This very thread.

I posted the vision in the changes thread- he was back on the ground 5 minutes later. Dees to get done for failing to follow the concussion protocol?

Am pretty sure that ANB didn't come back on.

Have you ever seen someone suspended for an act which won them a free? Umpire is right there and says it was fair. Should be called as a witness.
Umpires make mistakes all the time. Surely you've noticed that.
That's worth a week IMO. The player had no way to protect his head. Use both eyes, people.

Well maybe the hard ground was the culprit and should be sited, earning a one week suspension.
Means that The Dockers would have to play the Lions in Brisbane next weekend.
Sounds fair.

Gibbs got two weeks for this tackle that was deemed legal by the umpire on the day. It’s actually a much worse tackle, two actions instead of going down shoulder to shoulder.

Gray have prior so not given holding the ball, but the exact same situation as Jetta. Happens a fair amount with sling tackles that get picked up later.

It’s a week. It is. Unfortunate but always was a week.

Evidently “that’s a dangerous tackle” Wayne Carey has changed his stance since Gibbs.

Take the week and move on. There were two actions and Smith was clearly dazed afterwards so an appeal is very unlikely to succeed

It’s a typical outcome based suspension that would have been cleared had Smith not been hurt

The Frost tackle on Petrucelle was a great run down but had Petch hit his head on the ground and been dazed then Frost would be on the hook as well. But petch got up so no action

It’s a crap shoot that Jetta loses this time.

The relentless campaign to get Lewis Jetta looks to have paid off with the match tribunal offering him a week’s rest.

West Coast should appeal it. It was one movement.
Try and learn the rules.
It doesn't have to be a sling tackle.

Was deemed as a dangerous tackle as he pinned his arms and the guy
got concussed.

It's a week off every day of the week.

No one is defending the action .
But the outcome is that smith came back on 5 mins later and played yet goodwin and the media saying smith didn't .

Either he is not concussed or melbourne sent him out without an assessment.

Pretty sure NicNat got a HTB free for his tackle that saw him suspended (I may be wrong).

Either way, it does happen.

I'm sure that's what we'll bring to the tribunal. It's pretty rubbish you can suspend someone for the look of it. Argue medium down to low impact. Fine. Move on.
