  1. Barry Hall, Western Bulldogs, has been charged with misconduct in that he held Scott Thompson, North Melbourne, in a headlock during the second quarter of the Round Nine match of the Western Bulldogs and North Melbourne, played at Etihad Stadium on Saturday May 22, 2010.

    The match review panel determined a sanction of $4000. In summary, he can accept a $3000 sanction with an early plea. The charge was laid under the misconduct provisions in the Table of Offences, whereby the Match Review Panel can impose a financial sanction for a misconduct offence that is not classified under the table. The Match Review Panel took into account the medical report on player Thompson and the relevant footage in determining a charge of rough conduct was not appropriate in the circumstances of this case.

  2. I find it ridiculous that Jackson got three (two if he’d pleaded guilty) and BBBBH gets $4000 fine ($3000 with guilty plea).

    The AFL, yet again, shows it’s inconsistencies in it’s match review system. I can’t believe they looked into the medical report on Thompson in determining BBBBH’s guilt. How is that a factor?? They didn’t do this with Jackson’s headbutt or he would’ve got off.

    This result has really got me riled up. Jackson should’ve got a week and Hall two.

    1. Hall should have gotten a week. (And I’m a Bulldogs supporter)

      But Thompson should have gotten two as a result of overt and excessive provocation. Stuff free kicks, if they are seen to overly provoke a player, and that player cops a penalty for reacting, the provoker should get double the penalty of the provokee. That will stamp out the practice once and for all.

      In the end, the real story is that North were so hopelessly hopeless, missing set shots from 15 metres in front of goal, couldn’t do a damn thing right, so instead Brad Scott comes out with dirty tactics that are not within the spirit of the game. It wasn’t just Barry, but the hits on Gia and co. It’s embarrassing, and should not be part of the game.

      1. It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Brad Scott coaches with an overtly aggressive mindset. Have people forgotten the way he played the game??

  3. I just can’t believe Baz got off. If everyone starts whacking on headlocks like that the AFL will realize their mistake. Provocation isn’t an excuse according to tribunal, so that means any UFC type headlocks are fair game, precident set.

  4. At the end of the day Thompson should thank he’s lucky stars that he didn’t end up like Brent Staker, nuff said.
