ever since the nfl worked out that constant head hits wasnt good for long term brain health the afl has decided that penalties need to be dished out on a consequence basis rather than an action basis

in 2014 when Fyfe bumped Riskytelly and split both their heads open and getting a two week rest it was too early in the season for the afl to work out the brownlow possibilities ...fyfe then started his run of great football and their was talk of a legal challenge to the ban about 10 weeks later...fyfe decided to smack Jordan Lewis (a perfectly understandable event) and made the need for a belated appeal unnecessary

since then only nuffy players have been caught out and no one has given a shit

if you do something that hurts the player you do it to ...you are in trouble

Dangerfield did everything reasonable to make sure Kreuzer wasn't hurt (unlike one bleating idiot on the Carlton FB site yesterday, I don't consider Danger putting himself between a 16 stone man in virtual free-fall and the ground to be particularly reasonable, even if he did have the agility to actually do it) but Kreuz got hurt anyway. I'm usually absolutely last on the PCGM!!!! whinge train, but now are we going to see blokes like Kreuzer and Mumford and Goldstein virtually walk through packs with the ball, because before you tackle them you have to think about the need to control them all the way to the ground to ensure they get a soft landing?

Mumford (and his ilk) can continue to scatter packs like ninepins; nobody will tackle them now.

GWS makes life hard for Melbourne, and Essendon stays in the hunt with a late surge to just pip Carlton.

Lots of opportunities for clubs to slip out of the 8 over the next 3 weeks ... not feeling secure at all.

The druggies have a soft draw and will make it. Pity Joey D picked the wrong club.

Bloods now a chance to make it.

Pondies and Norf played the worst game I can remember.

Still possible there will be only two Melbourne teams in the finals.

Norf was awful last night. Grundy will go under the new tackle rule.

The final 8 is still very tight ... all sides in the top 4 - bar Adelaide - need at least one more win to be absolutely sure of finals qualification.

Richmond could yet come 9th (or indeed as low as 11th); the same is true of my mob.

Yes, I vaguely recall that, but because of Danger and Grundy, it's now flavour of the week, and according to the pundits, the AFL is likely to redefine the tackling rules.

Grundy deserves a week at the most though because there wasn't intent to hurt, he was very remorseful and he was paid a free kick by the umpire.

Danger wasn't exactly trying to kill Kreuzer either but that was no help to him. Beware the AFL making a pre-finals example, esp with an also-ran team so the finals aren't directly affected....Sending A Message and all that

The Grunter tackle was worse than Danger's. The ump's awarding of a free was a deliberate irony.

Interesting round. Pea heart awards to the weasels, dees and Port.

After 9 rounds the Bloods were 1-8. St George were 8-1. Currently Swannies are 6th and have pretty much locked a semi spot, while the useless Drags are now out of the 8.

An extraordinary turnaround from the mighty Sth Melbourne. Cmon Drags. Time to lift.

Grunter deservedly cops two as does Baby Huey Hawkins - surely the thickest player in the AFL. With Duncan being rubbed out and the free puller Selwood being injured, the Cats could miss top four. If so Hawkins should be traded (the Pies always like to buy over rated forwards) or have his contract halved.
