AFL Match Review Panel – Round 4 – Not as Brown,Not as out! (Dawes video too)

So as I write this, waiting for the AFL to send out their weekly update on the reports of the week (and also waiting for Dell Support to pickup my call to them about my wifes computer). The only  incident that I knew about was Leigh Brown of the Pies hit on a Tiger in Friday nights game. There didn’t look a lot in it! I didn’t see all the games but the only other incident that I saw was a very minor bump by Buddy that for anyone else would be fine but as a (biased) Hawks fan and knowing Buddy’s history,  I am a tad concerned! Writing this reminds me there was a bump on the mark of buddy that may have got high but probably won’t be looked at either. Has there been any that you have seen?

UPDATE:

  • So in the time it took me to write this the reports by umpires in games is out and only Leigh Brown at the moment. (Also Dell Support have been great and they are going to fix the computer. If your after a computer, the little extra cost of a Dell is well worth it!)
  • Monday 3:30pm: Match Review Panel findings are in. Magpie Chris Dawes has been handed a 1 week rest to consider after striking Reece Conca (what is it about this guy that Pies want to hit him?) in second quarter. He got 80 points for this issue but has 93.75 points carry over. He could challenge this and lose and still only miss 1 week. Matthew Pavlich won’t miss a week for a Strike on Liam Anthony but if he accepts the finding or challenges and losses he will not be able to win the Brownlow.  Full details of all issues below.
  • Monday 4:05pm: Here is the Video of the Dawes incident. What do you think?

  • Emma Quayle reporting, as expected, Collingwood to challenge the Dawes incident. Nothing to lose really!

    Collingwood has confirmed it will be off to the tribunal tomorrow to see if it can get Chris Dawes cleared.

  • Tuesday Midday: Pav and Dawes Challenging. Neither risk extra weeks by challenging.

Other Incidents Assessed:
The match day report against Collingwood’s Leigh Brown for striking Richmond’s Reece Conca during the third quarter of Friday’s match was assessed. The panel said that Brown’s arm was held back by Richmond player Angus Graham as Conca was completing a mark, and Brown was attempting to reach the contest. It was the view of the panel that the retarding of Brown’s arm contributed to the contact, which was made with an open hand. The panel did not view his action as a reportable offence and no further action was taken.
Contact between West Coast’s Mitch Brown and Hawthorn’s Cyril Rioli from the third quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. The panel said there was no forceful high contact made and no further action was taken.
Contact between West Coast’s Darren Glass and Hawthorn’s Lance Franklin from the third quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. West Coast player Shannon Hurn had played on from full back, when Glass came in to shepherd Franklin away from his teammate. Based on the video evidence available and a medical report from Hawthorn, forceful high contact could not be determined. No further action was taken.
Contact between the Geelong Cats’ James Podsiadly and the Sydney Swans’ Shane Mumford from the second quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. Mumford had received a handball when Podsiadly approached the Sydney player to make contact. Contact was made to the upper body and the under arm region. A free kick was paid at the time and the medical report stated there was no injury to the Sydney player. The panel determined that any high contact that was made was below the force required to constitute a reportable offence.
Contact between Fremantle’s Jayden Pitt and North Melbourne’s Lindsay Thomas from the first quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. Thomas slid into the Fremantle player and it was the view of the panel that Pitt had no case to answer.
Contact between Fremantle’s Hayden Ballantyne and North Melbourne’s Brent Harvey from the second quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. The panel said that the force was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.
