  1. Does anyone else find it confusing that Redpath gets 3 weeks down to 2 (bad record notwithstanding) for a tap, whilst Wines only gets a fine for jumping into Langdon’s face with his shoulder?
    (I don’t support a team from either of those games, just some musings from a neutral point of view)

    1. I’ve got Wines and was sure he would get a week. The umpires and the MRP have been the most unconsistent this year that i can remember, i reckon there will be a few changes next year.

  2. I find it confusing when a player gets a free kick and then gets suspended for 2 weeks and another player cuts open a players face with kick and gets fined.

  3. So now Redpath has 3 weeks after the MRP upheld its decision. If the AFL don’t realise this is an absolute fucking disgrace, I have sincere concerns about where our game is headed.

    He pushed, didn’t punch, pushed for gods sake, Davis in the shoulder/neck region and Davis went down like a 50c whore. Result, 3 weeks.

    Wines jumps off the ground, hits Langdon in the face with his shoulder, Langdon got felled but eventually got up. Result, $1000 fine.

    The MRP has lost all touch with reality, and the AFL needs to make a conscious decision to sack all current members of the MRP, replacing them with a panel of 7 recently retired players who all give their verdict without input from each other, then the decision is whatever the majority rules.

    I rarely get annoyed by anything in life but this decision has really pissed me off.

  4. Shocked that Wines got off with a fine, lucky he didn’t break Langdon’s jaw, which it had the potential to do. Greene must be very relieved, I thought he’d get a week. I agree with the above comments, the MRP has been very inconsistent this season.

  5. The AFL must surely be embarrassed by this cock up of a system. It seems that the MRP are following the guidelines they are given , but some of those guidelines are ridiculous.
    This week however , Wines and Greene in particular are just poor calls . They both
    struck opponents in the head, one with a shoulder , one with a boot.
