Hope the Umpires aren't in blue as well . Surely both teams won't wear blue shorts .

Na, fu** that, lets not be like other clubs and debut players as the sub.

Any club who does that to a kid should be :$

Weird thing to care about IMHO. As long as there is a sub rule coming on as sub can be a good way to introduce new kids.

My only issue is the statistical side of counting it as a game if you don't get on, which makes zero sense.

Bring the family down, get them in the rooms pre game , jumper presentation, then have them watch him sit on the bench for the entirety, its a campaigners act.

Your debut should be exciting, sitting on the bench as a sub is not.

I don't care what anyone says about integrity I think it is a bit heartless that coaches do this. You aren't going to win or lose the game based on your sub choice.

That's my point - if you don't get on the ground then it's not your debut.
Tell ya family to come back next week.

But thats not the way it is, so your point is irrelevant under the current system.

The current rule is you pick a sub and maybe they get on the ground and maybe they don't.
In that context having a sentimental touchy feely club rule that you won't pick certain players as sub in case it puts their family out is a weird approach to professional sports.

If the sub rule persists, then we just have to get used to the treating the moment you step on the ground as the big occasion rather than the moment your name is written on the team sheet.

I do agree getting a game credited to you as an unused sub is s**t, but as the rule currently stands youre not going to convince me otherwise.

Yep agree, its a joke. Bedford has technically played 10 games for the club but only been on the field in 4 of those.

If Harmes misses with injury then one of Bedford/Laurie to come in for him.

Chandler likely to miss and get rubbed out for 1 week for his unintentional hit.

Wouldn't mind seeing one of the above as the sub to replace Chandler.

As other have mentioned, it would be crap to debut as sub, and against a cellar dwellar shambles of a club like Norf I wouldn't be opposed to a Laurie debut. Perfect conditions for it!

I'd like to see Bedford replace Chandler, in the side. Because of his solid form, and because of the importance of this round for our indigenous players.

I'd also like to see Rosman get a game, or as sub. If Rosman... it could be to the wing, or back flank. If the flank... Brayshaw could go back to the wing, one week ahead of Salem's return.
And Jordan could fill Harmes role.

Rosman is closer to delist than debut..

2 weeks for Chandler 1 week for Ryan is a ******* joke.

Out of principle the club should be appealing. They won’t win but they should be supporting their player and arguing the case that it was not an unreasonable action in the circumstances and shouldn’t constitute a reportable offence.

He would have gotten far less if he had struck Foley in the guts . Absolutely ******* shambolic.

Punching somebody= AOK $2000 fine

A Fair Tackle unfortunate to concuss someone= Go to Jail for 2 weeks.

* Off MRO FRO!!!

Ryan is lucky the Bowza is one tough hombre.

Christina has no feel about the game any more.

Therefore THE MRO CAN FRO.

Chandler is 175cms 80kgs
Foley is 189cms 81kgs

Aint Chandlers fault that Foley is concussed.

We need to challenge it. If it was Vines, Trac, Clarry etc.. we'd do it for them so why not Chandles?

10k soft cap for a losing case is a reasonable risk for a player not in our best 22.

We'd want to be going in with a strong case if we challenge.

Yeah it's a BS result but no way we are blowing 10k on a fringe player here. What I'd be interested in if it was a Cripps or Bont, what would the result be? If this guy didn't get concussed it was a free and we move on. Ryan on the other hand has gone past the ball and sniped a guy with a bump to the chin and he gets a week. I love a good bump, but if we are protecting the head, then surely the bump is a worse look than a tackle gone slightly wrong. Like others have said, a jumper punch to the chin would barely gain a fine, yet a slightly wrong tackle that injures someone gets multiple weeks. FRO MRO you're drunk!

I am so God damn angry. Lucky AFL HQ is in Melbourne and I'm in Tassie or I'd be marching there now with my pitchfork and flaming torch.

What a pathetic joke!!! Legal tackle, accidentally hurt a guy - 2 weeks! Deliberately try and take a guy's head off but he is made of concrete - ok, guess you should have a week. GTFO.
