Tribunal – Match Review Panel findings from Round 8, 2010

Well, this could be a long night for the Match Review Panel and then the tribunal. Plenty of big bumps and hair pulling??? So there are three match day reports but I think we can expect a long list of possible reports to include hair pulling by Sam Mitchell and Hayden Ballantyne, bumping by Campbell Brown and head butting by Daniel Jackson just to name a few out of the Hawks v Tigers match.


Don’t expect anything much before 5pm (probably not until 6pm).

UPDATE:

Wednesday: Daniel Jackson was unsuccessful in having his charge thrown out after he argued that he wasn’t in his right mind. After the tribunal stopped laughing, they gave him an extra week to work on his comedy routine! What were the Tigers thinking?

Tuesday 12:45pm: Daniel Jackson has challenged his report and it will be heard tonight. All others have accepted their charges.

Monday 6pm: In Club suspensions, Vince, Johncock and Matthew Jaenschfor “breaching training and preparation standards”. God dam it! Why did  I pick Vince over Hayes?

Monday 4:42pm: Turns out that it was Matthew Warrnock of Melbourne, nor Carlton.

Monday 4:36pm: The findings are in. Mitchell and Ballantyne can except fines for hair pulling and Daniel Jackson and Waite were handed suspensions for their incidents. The official results do say that Matthew Warrnock was fined but I believe (and am confirming) that it is meant to be Kreuzer. Will update when official word is through. Others that were looked at include Hille, Dawson, Brown and Baker but all were given the all clear.

AFL Tribunal, 5.30pm, Tuesday May 18

Daniel Jackson, Richmond, has been charged with a Level Three misconduct offence in that he head butted Campbell Brown, Hawthorn, during the fourth quarter of the Round Eight match between Richmond and Hawthorn, played at the MCG on Sunday May 16, 2010.

In summary, his previous poor record means that his two-game sanction must remain at two games, even with an early plea.

The incident was assessed as intentional conduct (three points), low impact (one point) and high contact (two points). This is a total of six activation points, resulting in a classification of a Level Three offence, drawing 250 demerit points and a two-match sanction. He has 80 points carried over from within the last 12 months, increasing the penalty to 330 demerit points and a three-match sanction.
