MRP R19, 2014

Written by Motts on August 4 2014

Stevie J offered 1 week – no reduction due to previous poor record. OUCH!

Conca offered 3 down to 2 – too little in this scribe’s opinion.

Other incidents assessed:
The match day report laid against the Brisbane Lions’ Daniel Merrett for striking Melbourne’s Cam Pedersen was assessed. Melbourne’s Dom Tyson had the ball and kicked towards his teammate Pedersen. As Pedersen was preparing to mark, Merrett, who had his eyes on the ball, reached up to spoil with his left arm. Merrett made contact with the ball with his left arm in his spoiling action and also made high contact to Pedersen at the same time. It was the view of the panel that Merrett’s action was a legitimate attempt to spoil and the high contact made was deemed to be accidental as part of the spoiling motion. No further action was taken.
Contact between Carlton’s Marc Murphy and Fremantle’s Ryan Crowley from the first quarter of Thursday’s match was assessed. After reviewing all available footage and receiving a medical report from the Fremantle Football Club, it was the view of the panel the force used in the contact was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.
Contact between the Geelong Cats’ James Kelly and North Melbourne’s Lindsay Thomas from the third quarter of Saturday’s game was assessed. Thomas had the ball kicked to him by teammate Ben Cunnington. As Thomas prepares to approach the ball, Geelong’s Kelly places a hand on Thomas’ back. A free kick was paid at the time for a hands-in-the-back infringement, which has been judged by the umpiring department to be a correct decision. It was the view of the panel that while Thomas propelled himself forward after the initial contact by Kelly, there had been contact to his back. No further action was taken.

  1. Well that’s a bit shizen!

    A bit surprised – no doubt Stevie pressed in for a bit longer than he should have but it hardly looked reportable!

  2. Two weeks for what was essentially a king hit? Oh dear…

    Surely the act and not the impact has to be taken into account… fair to say the AFL should appeal this one and treat it much the same as the Vickery case and allow some former footballers decide Conca’s fate at the tribunal.

    This stuff just doesn’t happen anymore!

  3. Crap… bloody Stevie J… what to do now.

    In an elimination final, need to field a full team…3 trades left, want to upgrade Tex Walker and Shuey as well.

    t/u – Trade in 2 cows on bench (Langford & L.Taylor) to get a cheap back option (have cover if necessary with Gardiner) and any Premo mid with around $170k(min) and 1 trade remaining. This will give me 9 premo’s in mids, so great cover, with Shuey on bench when full team in available.

    t/d – Use only one trade to straight swap Stevie J to any premo, leaving me with 2 trades and $20k(min)

    comment – rely on L.Taylor to score well at home against Adelaide

  4. Contact between james kelly and lindsay thomas was assessed? In my opinion, what thomas did is blatant cheating. It needs to be stamped out one way or another. Please dont let this game become soccer. Maybe the players association should have a think about it, take it out of the hands of the umpires and officials

  5. Steve Johnson’s suspension will mean Creepy Crowley undoubtedly jumps into Joel Selwood’s back pocket next weekend. I’d be cautious if considering him as captain, despite his excellent form.

  6. Merrett’s hit on Pederson gets assessed & that’s it……bloke has a broken nose & went off with blood pissing out of a fair gash on the bridge of his nose! Stevie J’s report & suspension is ridiculous as it looked so insufficient when considering the force factor in comparasion!

    MRP are soooooooo confusing!
