AFL Match Review Panel – Round 21, 2012 – Don’t want to shoot bambi, but….

Match Review Panel Findings

AFL Match Review Panel – Round 21, 2012 – Don’t want to shoot bambi, but….

Okay, as the title says, this first item isn’t going to be popular but has to be put forward. Everybodies favorite player from a club other then their own, Lenny Hayes, is going to be at least looked at for a bump he laid on Taylor Hunt of the Cats. Here it is:

So, there is a case for the Match Review Panel (MRP) to either give him points for a high bump or to explain why it doesn’t meet the criteria for a report. If it isn’t a reportable offense, then the most likely reason is that he doesn’t have an alternative way of attacking the ball. I often try to impose the “team mate test” to these matters. It goes something like this, if Hunt was Lenny’s team mate, would the contact have been the same? To me, if that was Nick Reiwoldt, there would have been no collision but even with that, there is a better then average chance that Lenny doesn’t go for this.

Another incident to be looked at would be the melee that took place in the Carlton vs Essendon match at the G on Saturday. Here is some footage of it:

It is beyond doubt that there will be a huge number of fines from this one! It could come in at a record number of players charged and/or money fined! One interesting one is Mitch Robinson. I saw vision, and the one embedded above isn’t it, of him punching a bomber in the fight. If you looking the vision at about the 23 second point, you do see Mitch extend his arm in a way that looks punch like, but I am sure we will see better vision when the MRP decision video comes out later today (come back here later tonight for that one).

Was there any other big incidents that I have missed? Add them to the Commets Below!

Other incidents Assessed:

Contact between St Kilda’s Lenny Hayes and the Geelong Cats’ Taylor Hunt from the second quarter of Friday’s match was assessed. Geelong’s James Kelly kicks the ball to Hunt, who is running on an angle with the flight of the ball. Hayes is coming to the contest and has his arms outstretched in preparation to mark the ball. Hunt arrives at the ball fractionally before Hayes and there is a collision, in which the players clash heads. It was the view of the panel that Hayes was contesting the ball with an attempt to mark and he had no realistic alternative way to contest the ball. No further action was taken.

Contact between St Kilda’s Adam Schneider and the Geelong Cats’ Andrew Mackie from the fourth quarter of Friday’s match was assessed. It was the view of the panel the impact below that required to constitute a reportable offence.

Contact between Carlton’s Mitch Robinson and Essendon’s Jake Carlisle from the quarter time break 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.

Contact between the Adelaide Crows’ Jared Petrenko and the Brisbane Lions’ Andrew Raines from the first quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. Raines is moving to collect a loose ball with Petrenko coming from the opposite direction. Petrenko has his arms out in front of him as he approaches the contest, when contact is made high to Raines. Raines was paid a free kick at the time by the umpire. It was the view of the panel that Petrenko had no realisitic alternative way to contest the ball. No further action was taken.

Contact between the Adelaide Crows’ Michael Doughty and the Brisbane Lions’ Tom Rockliff from the third quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. The ball is kicked into the Brisbane forward line. Rockliff is not able to complete a mark and picks up the loose ball, when Doughty tackles the Brisbane player to the ground. It was the view of the panel that Rockliff’s shoulder makes initial contact with the ground, rather than his head, and the force used in the tackle was not sufficient to constitute a reportable offence.

Contact between Port Adelaide’s Jay Schulz and West Coast’s Luke Shuey from the third quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. It was the view of the panel that Schulz’s action was a pushing motion and not a striking action. No further action was taken.

Contact between the Western Bulldogs’ Will Minson and the Sydney Swans’ Kieren Jack from the second quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. After a throw-in, the players are contesting the ball when Minson makes contact to Jack’s upper chest and neck area. It was the view of the panel the impact was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.

Contact between Hawthorn’s Clinton Young and the Gold Coast Suns’ Campbell Brown from the third quarter of Sunday’s match was assessed. Brown and Young are coming from opposite directions to contest a loose ball. Brown hits the loose ball towards a team mate while Young jumps into the air. Young makes high contact on his opponent and a free kick was paid to Brown at the time. It was the view of the panel the impact was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.
