At the first bounce of the game between the Cats and Crows down at Geelong, Steve Johnson was knocked out by a bump from one of the Brownlow Favorites, Scott Thompson. Here is the vision:   While Tom Harley says he didn’t think there was anything in it, I don’t agree. He runs into SteveJ, […]

Video – Tribunal – Brown out?

One of the worries of Suns picking up Campbell Brown and making him Vice Captain was that he is known to have white line fever and be suspect to brain fades. Well it only took two games for these to come to the fore. There were two incidents that will be a chance to make […]

Only one play had to wear the double points from a Match Review Panel offense in the Grand Final (or this case, Grand Final Replay) and to add insult to injury, it was Saint’s small forward, Adam Schneider. He can take a 2 match penalty or risk and extra game if he wants to challenge […]

Another busy week for the Match Review Panel and then the tribunal had to hear the case of Trent Cotchin for charging Sam Wright. The Tigers took a big risk challenge the charge and only succeed in giving him an extra week and extra 10% on his next charge (if within the next 3 years). […]

Tribunal – Match Review Panel findings from Round 15, 2010

Normally I crap on in this top section but with the mallee up in Brisbane, there is quite enough content to go around without me doing so. I guess the big news is the Travis Cloke got 3 weeks/down to 2 with early plea and Buddy Franklin has no case to answer. Full details and […]

Tribunal – Match Review Panel findings from Round 14, 2010
