Other incidents assessed

Contact between Port Adelaide’s Darcy Byrne-Jones and Richmond’s Brett Deledio from the second quarter of Friday’s match was assessed. The panel said Deledio took possession of the ball and was tackled by Byrne-Jones. Byrne-Jones took the Richmond player to ground, rotating him in the tackle, for which a free kick should have been awarded to Deledio. While the infringement for the tackle was missed, it was the view of the panel the force used in the tackle was below that required for a reportable offence. No further action was taken.

Contact between the Gold Coast Suns’ Tom Lynch and St Kilda’s Tom Lee from the fourth quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. Lee was preparing to mark with Lynch behind him, seeking to make a contest. As Lee sought to complete the mark, Lynch went to spoil the ball. The Gold Coast player made initial contact with the ball before making high contact with his opponent. A free kick was paid to Lee for the high contact. It was the view of the panel Lynch’s action was a legitimate attempt to spoil as he made initial contact with the ball. No further action was taken.

  1. Not a supporter of either club , the whole incident was caught on TV and is Jamar guilty of retaliation and McGovern should be fined for being the instigator .

    1. 100%.

      On a separate note, will two Bombers out give Sam Grimley a chance to get another game? End of the byes so he’s only there for cover, but it would be great to have him play on a regular basis.

  2. Zaha out is devastating news for my team this week. Was really banking on his 50pts. Not sure how I’ll cover his scoring output. Got a few strategies on mind and I’d like to hear people’s thoughts.

    TU – Upgrade Zaha to Relton Roberts
    TD – Keep Zaha as he’s a perma captain come SuperCoach finals

      1. I actually know of someone who has Zac Dawson in their side.
        Obviously I asked why. They said said that they had heard that FURL was going to try him as a goal kicking midfielder.
        To me that msde a lot of sense. We know he’s not a backman. It turns out that FURL has been playing him out of position all this time!

  1. So they didn’t even assess the bump from Sam Gibson to Selwood’s head that left him on the floor?

    Keep up the good work MRP!

  2. Is Selwood’s suspension providing just enough of an excuse to trade an under performing premium without feeling guilty? I cannot quite afford Ablett so I am considering Selwood to Rocky (plus under performing cash cow trades). The alternate trade is Oxley to Hodge (plus same cows). I can go Cripps to Ablett next week either way with another 2 trades. I currently have 8 trades and would have burnt 4 in the process. Ultimately I would like to go into the finals with 4 trades, so I would either end up with Ablett/Rocky/Oxley or Ablett/Selwood/Hodge. Some input from the crew would be appreciated.

    TU – Ablett/Rocky/Oxley
    TD – Ablett/Selwood/Hodge

  3. Knowing that even the smallest indiscretion will cost Fyfe 1 week and quite likely a maiden Brownlow for the long haired SC fave, i’d love to hear people’s thoughts.

    TU – Fyfe will keep a clean skin for the rest of the season and win Charlie
    TD – The kids a ticking time bomb and he’ll join the club with McKernan and Grant

    Personally, i reckon TD on this one.

  4. Firstly I will state my bias – I have Selwood in my SC team. I don’t understand how his incident was assessed as medium contact to the body when Sam Mitchell’s was assessed as low. In the Selwood incident, Wright got up and continued playing, didn’t go off the ground for medical treatment. Seems to me they graded as medium rather than low so that he got a suspension rather than a fine given they didn’t like the look of the incident. Not sure if anyone else saw AFL 360 last night, but they highlighted an incident where Andrew Swallow did something similar on Walker and that went unpunished.
