AFL Match Review Panel – Round 2, 2012 – Red mark for Whitecross

AFL Match Review Panel for Round 2, 2012

Before yesterday, the story I would have probably gone with either the brawl in the Tigers and Pies match or the Beau Waters bump and how luck he was, but today after the Cats vs Hawks match on Easter Monday, Brendon Whitecross was charged with rough conduct for a bump on Joel Selwood. When I look at the AFL and some of the decisions that are made, I think there is often cases that I would refer to as “Edge Cases”. By that I mean cases that fall on the edge of the law. Ones that either just enough to go over the line and trigger a rule even though the punished party is mighty unlucky or on the other side of the edge, the party gets of and is luck to get off. Then you argue you should let guilty part off, but that moves the edge creating a new series of cases that are just on the wrong side and so should be let off again moving the edge. You can see the cycle.

But back to Brendan. I thought at the time at the game the bump looked a bit off but might of been fine as there was a third player involved, that at initial looks, pushed Selwood into Whitey but on further inspection and on the further angles presented by the AFL site Whitecross gets up and as Selwood is moving towards him, he sets and moves towards Selwood with a arm/shoulder charge. Things happen at such a pace and perhaps that could be a defense if the report is challenged that Whitey had no other opportunity to do anything else as Selwood was bearing down on him and he had no time to react properly. I really think the Hawk will take the punishment and walkaway. The risk of a second game is probably too much to risk.

Other incidents Assessed:

The match day report against the Brisbane Lions’ Jack Redden for striking Carlton’s Dennis Armfield was assessed. Armfield has disposed of the ball when Redden makes late contact. After viewing all available footage, speaking to the umpire who laid the report on the day and receiving a medical report from the Carlton Football Club, it was the view of the panel the initial contact was to Armfield’s shoulder region with the inside of Redden’s arm. The high contact made was below the force required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.

Contact between Fremantle’s Matthew Pavlich and the Sydney Swans’ Nick Malceski from the fourth quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. The ball was kicked into Fremantle’s forward line and Malceski and Pavlich are both running towards the loose ball when Pavlich bumps Malceski. After viewing all available footage and receiving a medical report from the Sydney Swans Football Club, it was the view of the panel there was no forceful high contact made and the bumping action was not unreasonable in the circumstances. No further action was taken.

Geary is bending down to collect the ball when Lynch makes ffrontal contact.
