Other Matters Assessed:

Contact between the Sydney Swans’ Adam Goodes and Richmond’s Taylor Hunt from the first quarter of Friday’s match was assessed. The panel examined the incident in real time and determined that no further action was required.

Contact between Richmond’s Nathan Gordon and the Sydney Swans’ Kieren Jack from the third quarter of Friday’s match was assessed. Jack wins the ball against Richmond’s Shane Edwards and is then immediately confronted by Gordon. Gordon seeks to bump Jack, who moves to spin away from the contact. Gordon makes glancing contact to Jack as the Sydney player goes to ground. It was the view of the panel a free kick could have been paid for the high contact, had it been seen by the umpire at the time, but the force used was not sufficient for a report to be made. No further action was taken.

  2. Just to note, I have Buddy in my side, so I am not complaining in terms of that.

    How does both Tippets and Buddys impact both be classed as medium impact?! Buddy ran past the ball and dropped the shoulder into Edwards head. Should’ve been 3 weeks after an early plea. For it to be 1 week, its pretty pathetic. Setting a bad example for the kids coming through, you can set the example of being able to away with just about anything regardless who you are.
    If it was a different player, would it have been the same result? I think not. All we want is consistency and fairness. This fits neither of those categories. Such a joke. The AFL need a long hard look at themselves.

  3. Well done to the people that have Buddy but that has to be the biggest joke ever, 3 down to 2 would have been acceptable. Most people I talked to reckoned 3 or 4. Next report for a bump like that will be interesting. Hope to see the Martin one tonight because I missed it, but it must of been bad to get more than Buddy.

  4. As a diehard Swans fan, I will say this:

    If a 6’6″, 100+kg man running flat stick in a straight line and dropping the shoulder directly into an opponents head is classified as “medium impact”, then what the hell is high impact?

    Do you have to smuggle a sledgehammer out onto the field?
