The decision to give Cunnington a week was a monumentally stupid decision by the MRO.

I am pleased to see North appealed and found themselves in front of some cogent adjudicators.

What a waste of time for all concerned.

The Geelong “Niceness” trifecta is in full swing these days.

Selwood is too nice to duck his head but it is located unusually low on his body. Dangerfield is too nice to bump opponents high but his forearms are unusually hard and bony. Hawkins is too nice to flail his arms around in all sorts of odd directions but he does have unusually large elbows.

Their coach is too nice to complain about any of it!

Not their fault!

Sometimes, accidents just happen. In Geelong’s case, it is not a matter of sometimes, it is every time.
Mate - to be fair Selwood has one leg shorter than the other. He only looks like he leads with the neck but is actually to be applauded for playing with a severe disability. Many of the Geelong players have had the leg shortening op and I can now reveal in an exclusive that the entire west coast midfield has also had the op over the off season... so go easy. They just can’t help it

So Fritsch has his (what I thought was lenient) suspension overturned at the tribunal. Apparently it is now legal and within the rules to elbow players in the face.

Ordinary decision. To be expected though.

That was validated when Stagerfield elbowed Vlastuin in the head 5 minutes into the grand final and we were forced to play a man down for the rest of the game.

Actually don't have a problem with it. As I reckon Petracca contributed to it with the shove.

All you want is consistency though. I think back to Reid getting suspended after similarly getting shoved into the contest & collecting Fyfe..


We play a collision sport. Players are going to protect themselves & there will be casualties from it. There will be more if they don't protect themselves.

Don't agree. He fended to avoid the tackle with a raised elbow. His choice.
