How much time do you allow for a redo? A day? 2 days? What if a player suffers delayed concussion which isnt apparent until after teams are picked on Thursdays?The issue is not necessarily the MRO decision - it's the fact, that when the MRO demonstrably get something wrong (as in the assessment of the impact) the initial penalty still stands. Why can't the tribunal reassess the case based on the latest medical evidence at hand? The diagnosis was made public on Tuesday which gives the AFL plenty of time to hand out an appropriate penalty.
Does the MRO then have to go back through all the footage to see if he copped any other bumps?
In the dozen or more years of Monday reviews how often has it happened that the medical report wasnt able to be correctly submitted in the allowed timeframe ?
