AFL Match Review Panel – Round 12, 2011 – Will Slappy Selwood get Slapped? (Video)

Its Monday and the AFL haven’t put out the official game day reports yet as Round 12, 2011 is Queens Birthday long weekend. I would expect the first group of Match Review Panel findings tonight and the one incident that most will be interested in is the Brent Guerra v Joel Selweed incident. It has crated tremendous debate between not just Hawthorn and Geelong fans but also neutrals! There was no free kick or report on the day but Brent Guerra left the ground and is being reported to have a Perforated Ear Drum and possible broken Cheekbone depending on where you listen. There wasn’t good vision of the incident but there was some from the end-to-end camera which Channel 10 got hold of and I have for you here:

 

So what do you think? Will he go for this? Remember to stay tuned for further updates over the course of the day/week.

UPDATES

  • Monday 4:20pm: Hawks have confirmed that Guerra has a perforated eardrum but have stated that he is improving:

    Brent Guerra has a perforated eardrum following an incident also in the final quarter of Saturday’s loss to Geelong. Guerra has had issues with his balance and hearing since leaving the field of play but has improved significantly over last 24 hours and the Club will monitor his progress closely in coming days.

  • Monday 4:45pm: BREAKING NEWS: Selwood offered 3 weeks
  • Monday 5:30pm: Full details of the charges.
  • Monday 6:10pm: Video of the Findings are in. What do you think?
  • Tuesday 11:05am: Geelong have decided to challenge the charge against Joel Selwood. This should interesting to see if the Cats go all or nothing or if they try to reduce the amount of weeks. All or nothing would be to try to get off the whole thing. Minimisation would be to challenge one or more aspect of the charge to reduce there level. Most likely the ones that they will look at is Impact and if it was intentional or not.
  • Tuesday 11:30am: On the Geelong website, they are confirming that they are challenging the charge. Also suggest that there was evidence from Guerra used in coming up with the Charge.
  • Tuesday 11:55am: Herald Sun is reporting that both Selwood and Guerra were interviewed and that the Cats will be trying to get the charge taken down from Intentional to reckless meaning he would get 2 weeks not 3 (or 4 if he is unsuccessful with this argument). Seeing the interviews done, you would think it will be a hard road to home that the Cats are taking.
  • Tuesday 3:25pm: Around 2 hours out from the Joel Selwood case going to the Tribunal. The results of findings from the Monday game are in and the only report is Jack Trengove bumping into an umpire AGAIN. If I am right, that is 3 games in a row that Jack has been reported! Details below.
  • Tuesday 5:30pm: Its official that Selwood is just challenging the Intentional to reckless. In some way seems strange to me going to try to save a week, yet risking a week! No good Deal-or-no Deal playing to me!
  • Tuesday 7:27pm: Selwood lost his appeal and now (baring a successful appeal) will miss the next 4 matches, double the 2 he was hoping for and 1 extra then what he could have took if he had of accepted the Match Review Panel findings.

Other Incidents Assessed:

The match day report against Carlton’s Mitch Robinson for engaging in rough conduct against the Brisbane Lions’ Simon Black was assessed. The panel said that Robinson did not make contact to Black’s head/neck region with his bumping motion, but made high contact with his left arm. The majority of contact by Robinson was made to Black’s side and back as Robinson went over the top of the Brisbane player in his attempt to bump. While there was a free kick for high contact, the action was not deemed reportable and no further action was taken.

Contact between the Gold Coast Suns’ Danny Stanley and North Melbourne’s Drew Petrie from the second quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. Based on a medical report from North Melbourne, the force in the contact was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. Petrie required no treatment after the incident and immediately got to his feet to take his free kick. No further action was taken.

Contact between Hawthorn’s Brent Guerra and the Geelong Cats’ Joel Selwood from the fourth quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. It was the view of the panel that Guerra was standing his ground as Selwood was in a low position to try and gather the ball. Guerra was not moving forward and it was the panel’s view that his focus was to try and contest the ball. Guerra did not have a realistic alternative way to contest the ball and no further action was taken.

  1. Unsure how you can make a decision based on that! Can you base a suspension just on a medical report?
