  1. This is what I don’t understand… Whatever happened to the attempted striking rule?

    To use a recent example…

    If Ty Vickery swings and misses… does he get any sanction at all? I’m sure I’m in the minority but isn’t anything constituting a strike usually an automatic one week suspension, regardless of whether contact is made, in every football competition except the AFL?

    Players can throw what can be best termed as a ‘rabbit punch’ and incite a melee costing other players thousands of dollars for flying the flag and get off themselves based on the MRP ‘finding’ of it not having a strong enough impact. Yet look at what happened to Cox after he throws what is easily an intentional elbow… the retaliation comes in spades… his teammates come in to fly the flag costing them big bucks and he gets off like many before him because he ‘didn’t throw the elbow hard enough’?

    Doesn’t it seem arse backwards?

    Any strike regardless of the impact requires an automatic set penalty of a week’s suspension with a guilty plea, only overturned by a tribunal in exceptional circumstances, then apply the usual grading and loading on top of that week as per their conventional grading system.

    So basically Cox and Vickery would both get suspended for their part and then the MRP/Tribunal steps in for it’s verdict.

    The AFL rules committee has spent the best part of the MRP’s existence creating grey areas for the bump but the most simple of offenses… striking… is open to the same grey areas when it should be an open and shut case.

    Vickery will get the book thrown at him later this week and rightfully so… he chose to ‘shoot Bambi’ in retaliation to the cheap shot he received and his season is virtually over. But it didn’t have to be like that… especially if the umpire was doing his job correctly and paid the obvious free kick and put Cox in the book for striking. Take the piss out of ‘Razor’ Ray all you want but he would have been all over that like a rash.

    And in these instances, for the umpires, zero tolerance to any strike is the only way to go… you choose to swing your arms in such a manner that isn’t natural to our great game you choose to take at least a week off.

  2. 4 weeks for Tyrone.
    I think a minimum of five meaning he doesn’t play again would have been more appropriate.

  3. Wow, looks good, especially the end. I was searching for this particular topic for a few days across the nest, but there was nothing valuable, only found this https://policy-wonk.org/rhetorical-analysis-essay/, but still so happy to attain your
    post at the end. I’m keen on that theme, and I want to be always
    conscious of the most recent news. That’s a joy to read your
    article and eventually clarify the issue myself.

  4. You did a excellent job! This post sound really great. I saw something like a few
    weeks ago, something like this https://thethoughtcriminals.net/argumentative-essay-help/, but you did in-depth research, and your post
    appears to be more compelling than others. I’m amazed by the arguments you provided in addition to the manner of
    your post. I like when posts are both informative and interesting, when even dull facts are presented in an interactive manner.
    Well, it’s definitely about your post.
