    I think he said 'IF'.
    Whatever the situation, let the police handle it. Once that is done, then 'perhaps' their 'could/should' be further ramifications for the perpetrator.
    And rightly so.

    Im with you Madmug
    Very serious situation and hopefully the powers to be will assess all the information.
    Not a good look for football in general.

    I'm one of the biggest critics of AFLTAS.
    But really good to see them on the front page of today's Mercury, getting on 'front foot' in regards to the umpire abuse that has occurred in different leagues. Hopefully things can change for the better.

    Yes all credit to them. Not that they had much choice with such an incident & given the public & media outcry it has attracted.

    I just wish they were as forthright in addressing other issues around Tasmanian football. (sigh!)

    But more particularly I hope the young umpire himself, is ok.

    I hope he continues in the game, when he feels right. It would be a statement of strength & resolve to not be beaten down by such a cowardly attack. Its his choice of course, but I think he has massive sympathy & support right now. Again, I hope he is going ok.
    Thats whats important.

    As we move well into the last part of the H&A season its interesting to see who might be the premiers. Clarence seem the best team at the moment. North Launy & Glenorchy are still right in it but havent seemed as consistent as last season. For Glenorchy, I see Reynolds is back & with Josh Watts starting to impove after a lot of injury problems at Brisbane, they may yet be the dark horse. I know Lauderdale are their abouts but they seem to be like that all the time! Who knows what they'll do in the finals.
    For the rest, its about developing & planning for next year.

    The Demons genuinely thought they could take Lauderdale's spot in the 5......

    It will be interesting to see how some of the teams improve now that rep footy is over for the U18 guys. Will improve some teams like North in particular.

    Just read a report in the Advocate about a 16 year old Burnie Docker player who suffered a broken jaw in the Development league match against Lauderdale at the weekend. A 29 year old Lauderdale player is due to face the tribunal on Friday night. According to the report there are witnesses who described it as an off the ball incident.

    Seriously?

    Man you'd have to be a proper piece of shit to be a 29 year old thumping a kid.

    I think thats the guy who has been reported maybe twice this year for hits behind play. I think he got off due to lack of evidence. ie they wouldn't accept the evidence of someone being taken off with a head injury caused by that guy off the ball. You think Lauderdale would have pulled him up for belting kids in D League. You know, duty of care etc.

    Can you not read? Lauderdale took him from the field and didn't let him return, but hey lets not let the facts ruin your shit flinging now.

    taking him off,after he broke the kids jaw, is like putting a condom on after the 'event'
    the jaw has been wired, I hope that the player does not have any long health issues both phyiscal and Mental
    I have for years watched Winter play at Clarence where he was the greatest behind the play Hitter /puncher elbows, knees etc etc etc
    Its a pity Lauderdale football club had appointed him, with the players just follow his crap .

    At this stage they are only allegations so need to tread carefully the Advocate mentioned that one media reported it as "a coward's punch" However a witness said "it did not meet that criteria" I Take it the media outlet that reported The coward's punch is Brian Carlton from "Tasmania Talks"
    Brian Carlton discusses a concerning football incident

    Brian Carlton mentions the Lauderdale player not by name but he is training to be a police officer and then questions has this been reported to police? Not much to say from me it seems a long time to wait till Friday to go to tribunual?

    Hopefully justice is served for all, also One would think Lauderdale would have their own internal review into the matter? Wishing Jason Chatwin a speedy recovery.

    Not much coverage at this point in the Southern Media, this all sounds a bit familar to a story from a few years ago also in the Development League with an older age player who was accused of a strike agaisnt a junior player, the alleged that time happened also to be a Police Officer?

    After his second report, which it seems he was lucky to escape penalty, they should have realised he is not a suitable player for the Dev League & sent him off to a senior SFL club. Or told him to take up boxing or Ninja warrior or something other than belting kids.
    Out of this I recon the AFL Tas tribunal will come under investigation as to why they let him go, with his tendency to hit behind play.

    I see your points, but as you said he received no sanction for the last report, you can't just go tossing players out of your club. I am not defending the player but that muppet Tigerssaints getting on here flinging mud at the club and somehow blaming Darren Winter for it is ridiculous.

    Question for you as you followed North Hobart, what do you think of John Devine? All reports are he was a dead set thug on the field who happened to be a champion player.

    JD was a hard man. The game was played to far different standards. I could pick guys from lots of clubs who were the same as JD. So its a non issue comparing the game in the 1960's to nowdays.
    Remember this is a monster 29 yo guy who had been reported for other behind the play issues. Lauderdale have young guys who could play in the Dev league. That guy has no hope of ever playing senior football. All its done is reflect badly on Lauderdale, & AFLTas & its tribunal.

    So basically you are happy to condone a player going around belting blokes in the 60s but not today? What's the difference? Why do you want the player doing it today kicked out and the player doing it 50 years ago put on a pedestal?

    Deflection is not helping this problem. I didn't ever like anyone belting people. For you info JD was never a behind the play snipper. He had many an altercation with players like John Bingley. But he copped as much as he gave. He also played senior mens football but didn't hit kids off the ball, he protected his own players, as was most of what went on in those days some 40-50 years ago, so take your pathetic deflection efforts somewhere else.

    Why not talk about your own coach who was a hit & duck off out the back merchant, real brave he was.!!!!
