AFL Match Review Panel – Round 14, 2012 – Tex Walker, Texas Sling Tackler!

Match Review Panel Findings

AFL Match Review Panel – Round 14, 2012 – Tex Walker, Texas Sling Tackler!

Perhaps a bigger issue of the weekend is the Taylor Walker tackle on Steven Morris. It was only  Round 7 that Taylor was charged for a dangerous tackle. This tackle looks terrible (see it here) but caused no injury. Most are thinking that this means that he will get away because no injury occured but you have to look deeper at the Tribunal system guide to see that impact is also determined on the potential to cause injury:

In determining the level of impact, regard will be had to the extent
of force and in particular, any injury sustained by the player who was
offended against. Regard will also be had to the potential to cause injury.
For example, contact to the head will generally have more impact than
contact to the body if the force used is similar. The potential to cause
serious injury is also relevant, such as in the following cases:

  • any head-high contact with a player who has his head over the ball, particularly when contact is made from an opponent charging from a front-on position;
  • forceful round arm swings that make head-high contact to a player in a marking contest, ruck contest or when tackling;
  • spear tackles;
  • driving an opponent into the ground when his arms are pinned.

(Taken from AFL Tribunal Guide, 2012: http://mm.afl.com.au/Portals/0/2012/AFL-Tribunal-Booklet-2012.pdf)

So what happens if he goes for this and lets say the impact is medium and the action is negligent? So it would be High Contact – 2pts, Medium impact 2pts and negligent 1pts. That comes to 5 activation points, level 5 offense. This works out to 225 base points. After his recent suspension of 2 weeks, he would get a 20% increase in those points bringing it to 270 points. He also has 39 points hang-over bring it to 309. Even with a 25% discount (bringing it to 232pts) , it will still be a 2 week penalty. For each of the ratings (impact being higher or it being judged Reckless or Intentional, which could be possible) that is increased it will add a week to his punishment. It is arguable that a 2 week rest, apart from taking his future penalty to 40% extra, they have an undermanned Port and the Giants which should be winnable with or without Walker. If it gets 3 to 4 weeks, it would mean he would miss the Eagles match and if 4, Cats game. Those two would hurt the Crows. This will be another interesting finding to watch from the Match Review Panel.

Friday night saw the first charge of the weekend in the first game, in fact the first quarter. The ball was in the forward pocket when Hawk Brent Guerra and Eddie Betts of the Blues. The ball went out with Guerra seeming to partially play the ball and partially go the man who was bent over the ball looking to pick up too. Guerra gets to the ball but can’t pick it up and then launches himself at the player getting him high. If you haven’t seen the issue, have a look at it from here:

Now (and remembering I am a bias Hawk fan that tries to put his biases aside in these matters) you could argue this either way. You could argue that Brent had his eyes on the ball the whole time and the bump came in the act of going the ball but it looks like he purposely dives into Betts head while trying to hide it. This could go either way but it should be reckless at worst, low impact (Betts got up and took the kick) and high contact.That should be one, maybe two weeks at most. If it is one week, it will mean he will rest verses the Giants, which shouldn’t hurt the Hawks.

There are some other incidents to the likes of Brendon Goddard and others, we will update this post over the next few days with the findings, any tribunal cases that may happen and in the unlikely event of an appeal, we will have news of that as well. So don’t forget to come back.

UPDATES

  • Mon 12:30pm: Confirmation of the Guerra Match day report
  • Mon 5pm: The book his been thrown and thrown hard! Guerra – 3 games, Walker – 3 Games, Goddard – 2 games, Stewart Crameri – 2 matches, Jackson – 1 match. Will be interesting to see if any of these players challenge their charges. Most will risk a game to challenge the penalty. It also appears that some have had their impact determined on the basis of potential impact rather then actual impact. Guerra is still the interesting one for me. Being that he had his eyes on the ball the whole time, I’m wondering if the Hawks would take the risk and challenge it.
  • Tue 9am: Added the Verdict Video review of the round with MRP head, Mark Fraser
  • Tue 11:50pm: Daniel Jackson is challenging his charge and risking an extra week. All others accepted their charges. Details below.
  • Tue 7pm: Daniel Jackson was unsuccessful at the tribunal and will now miss two matches.

Other incidents Assessed:

Contact between Fremantle’s Ryan Crowley and Collingwood’s Dayne Beams from the second quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. It was the view of the panel the force used was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.

Contact between the Adelaide’s Richard Douglas and Richmond’s Alex Rance from the third quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. Rance is bending down to take possession of the ball and gains possession as Douglas comes toward him. As Rance moves upward from a lowered position, Douglas prepares to bump and, at the last instant, elects to attempt to tackle his opponent. His tackle makes high contact and a free kick was paid to the Richmond player. It was the view of the panel that Douglas’ actions were an attempt to tackle and the Adelaide player had no realistic alternative way to contest the ball. No further action was taken.

Contact between the Gold Coast’s Gary Ablett and West Coast’s Eric Mackenzie from the fourth quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. Ablett is running towards a loose ball in the Gold Coast forward line with his opponent Scott Selwood, while Eric Mackenzie is coming from the opposite direction. Mackenzie gathers the loose ball and Ablett’s right leg makes contact with his opponent. It was the view of the panel that while Ablett’s actions in sticking out his leg were reckless, the impact was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.

Contact between Essendon’s Heath Hocking and umpire Matthew Leppard from the third quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. After the ball is bounced, it is knocked back by the ruckmen towards the direction the umpire is heading away from the contest. Hocking and opponent Ryan Griffen both begin to head towards the ball and Hocking makes contact with the umpire, as he is heading backwards. It was the view of the panel that Hocking did not set up in an incorrect position and the contact with the umpire was accidental. No further action was taken.

Contact between the Western Bulldogs’ Liam Picken and umpire Matthew Leppard from the third quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. After the ball is bounced, the umpire heads backwards at a slight angle and contact is made with Picken. It was the view of the panel that Picken did not set up in an incorrect position and the contact with the umpire was accidental, as he moved on an angle. No further action was taken.

Contact to the Western Bulldogs’ Ryan Griffen while being treated from the third quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. After viewing all available footage and an MRP investigation, it could not be determined that a reportable offence had occurred. No further action was taken

Contact between St Kilda’s Jarryn Geary and North Melbourne’s Andrew Swallow from the second quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. Swallow is preparing to mark as Geary seeks to spoil. Swallow marks the ball and high contact is made with Geary’s spoil, for which a 50-metre penalty was paid. It was the view of the panel that Geary had his eyes on the ball and his actions were an attempt to spoil. No further action was taken.

Contact between North Melbourne’s Michael Firrito and St Kilda’s Ahmed Saad from the first quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. After viewing all available footage and an MRP investigation in which both players were interviewed, it could not be determined if a reportable offence had occurred. No further action was taken.

Contact between St Kilda’s Sean Dempster and North Melbourne’s Brent Harvey from the second quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed.
