Cant find the thread on the main boards Umpires and MRP.

It was getting heated so maybe deleted.

I would like a fair and just hearing and outcome.

But we all know the chance of that is as likely as the AFL going one off season without changing the rules.

If you want to know why the Tribunal threads have such a fond place in the hearts of Eagles fans, a sample of some of our favourites:

Begin with the big Q stick, charged with a knee in the back and cleared by a frame by frame picture created by a bigfooty poster, referenced in the case by our QC

In 2015 you had the explosive Chris Masten biting incident, as jaw mechanic experts stared down lying testimony and barnacle Suban to get a strange result

In 2017 Clayton Oliver squirted around on the floor after a phantom elbow, ensuring the players code was no more as an incredulous Will Schofield faced the kangaroo court

In 2018 Nic Nat failed his biomechanics exam, failing to take into account weight differential in the easiest decision ever made by Michael ‘Literally Hitler’ Christian

And also in 2018, the much more unsavoury but no less fun Gaff Brayshaw kerfuffle, including an impossible golf game and a lot of heated Twitter posts

Somewhere along the line in 2012 Shuey got charged with elbowing Lindsay Thomas in the groin, and our defence was basically to call him a diving bitch. Which he is and was. Can’t track down the thread though.

Yeah I don’t get how it can be medium impact when there was no lingering injuries. He did sit out the rest of the game, but maybe he’s just a soft cube?

I think the AFL love giving us the bad decisions because we don't often appeal, screw them we should make it a point to argue every suspension from now on.

Clayton Oliver squirting, with Bachar Houli feat. Waleed Ali on the undercard. Genuine contender for best night in MRP history.

I think the sticking point, the one we will win it with, will be the "high contact" charge.
As McGovern didnt even touch his head, how could it be high contact?
