I am surprised they booked him at all given his standard manoevre week after week is a forearm jolt to the head or throat and he never gets booked.

In answer to your last paragraph Morgan, No, life means life and no parole. Whether someone was burnt or not.

Yeah, the Schmook gets into some dangerously Hackdorn-like territory in his MRP spray, doesn't he? (Thanks for that, Bruce.) The really strange bit is when he defends Tippett for having an open hand rather than a fist when he clobbered the Richmond guy. With his elbow.

I think if the MRP really took the time to look into this, they'd find Buddy is actually only 5'6" and 75kg dripping wet, and was therefore really lucky to not come off with a serious life threatening injury to himself for such a courageous, yet foolhardy action. The little nugget.

The Tigers player should really get 6 weeks for trying to make the poor little bloke look bad.

If you do intend to run past the ball and take the player out, you can do it properly, and without contact to the head.

I loved watching Troy Cook play and I’m so glad that Son Son wears #10 now.

Michael Gleeson in TheAge has a crack

Shane Edwards was hit to the point of concussion – he was off the ground for just shy of the 20-minute assessment period to check if he was concussed. He was shaken up. He might have been knocked out, he might have – like other players – broken his jaw.

I know what you are saying – yes, but he didn't. Well, the rules – you know those pesky things – they also ask that the potential to cause serious injury be considered for impact. Oops, forgot that bit.


I kinda like the cut of his jib. Whatever that means.

That's all nonsense.

What is 'the point of concussion'? How does one determine degrees of not being concussed?

He was hit in the head so the doctor took the responsible doctorly action and had a look at him. He was quickly cleared and came back onto the ground before he was allowed to, giving away a free kick.

There are some very specific rules for when a player has their head over the ball. You can't apply them to other situations. It's like reading out the push in the back rule and then trying to apply it to the side.

I think this needs repeating - it was the same result that Fyfe got for his high bump on Rischitelli last year. Fyfe just happened to have carry over points from his lame attempt to get off the kicking charge a year earlier so couldn't get it reduced with a guilty plea.

You edited out the jib bit that I liked, where he refers to the rules and potential injury where a player has head over the ball. Then he says some stuff about inconsistency and the tribunal. I really liked that.

My take is that degree of injury shouldn't come into the verdict deliberations.

That was why I only quoted the jibby bit.

Then you cut out the jibber and made it look like jabber.
