Just watched Vickery go the bump in a gratuitous shepherd and make solid head contact which resulted in an immediate* concussion test on Jamison. I assume that its 3 down to 2 with an early plea and he doesn't play in the game against us? Or is it just incidental contact, nothing to see here?

Instant karma then saw Kreuzer's elbow hit Vickery in the head (but it really was an accident).

*OK, it wasn't immediate, he wandered round the footy field like a zombie for a couple of minutes before coming off.

Commentators carrying on about how they are "confused about the rules".

The rules are clear it's how the MRP apply them that is the cause of confusion.

Careless Conduct (i.e. he intentionally bumped but the head clash, though reasonably foreseeable, it will be regarded as careless based on recent MRP decisions)
High* Impact (Jameson played no further part. *Could be increased to severe by doctors report or if Jameson suffers complications and is hospitalized and is diagnosed with something that has him miss multiple weeks)
High Contact.
So
3 wks.
No early plea due to a previous bad record.
2014 was outed twice - 4 wks for striking Cox and earlier in the yr missed 2 matches for striking North's Firrito.

purple kit
think you forgot the "playing freo in two weeks" clause.

reduces impact to low and therefor a 1 week ban, also Jamison will say Vicks is a great block who didn't mean it.

Thought about adding the Purple clause but knew it wouldn't take long for someone else to add it.
