So you can elbow someone in the head now. Fair nuff.
Not if you are in a tigers jumper - Soldo says hello.

And Soldo was only trying to protect himself from Worpel jumping at him. And only got him in the neck. And didn't cause a hair of damage.

At least Dangerfield had a reason for his arm being raised in that he had just punched the ball.

Why did they downgrade it to accidental from careless? It could be both IMO. Under the AFL definition of Careless Conduct:

Careless conduct A Player’s conduct will be regarded as Careless where his conduct is not intentional, but constitutes a breach of the duty of care owed by the Player to all other Players. Each Player owes a duty of care to all other Players, Umpires and other persons (as applicable) not to engage in conduct which will constitute a Reportable Offence being committed against that other Player, Umpire or other person (as applicable). In order to constitute such a breach of that duty of care, the conduct must be such that a reasonable Player would not regard it as prudent in all the circumstances. Further, a Player will be careless if they breach their duty to take reasonable care to avoid acts which can be reasonably foreseen to result in a Reportable Offence.

This appears the perfect example of careless conduct. Surely you owe a duty of care not to raise your elbow at an oncoming tackler? Who fends a tackle with an elbow (other than bumper bar Gaz)?

The deflection about him being pushed by Petracca and being lower is laughable.

Christian is clearly incompetent.

I wonder if a certain Geelong player will be cited for the hip to the head on Mansell or not. I suspect not and we will not hear a squeak from the media caravan.

It's Duckwood and the media have said it's accidental. SHocking will throw it out. Done. Suffer Richmond.

more chance of Peter Dutton adopting a disabled refugee baby straight off the trawler I reckon.

Tom Brown tried to raise it with Dimma in the after much but Dimma just dismissed him with a wave of the hand saying he’s not interested.

Just heard Browne say Selwood did nothing wrong and is likely to get off because he didn't lay a bump. Splitting hairs I reckon when Selwood has approached a bloke with his head over the ball and turned side-on at the point of contact. The rule is "bumps or makes forceful contact to an opposition player from front-on when that player has their head down over the football". *smile* guilty and has to get a week. If not I'm going on strike.

Similar in a lot of ways to Trent and Shiel but there will be no witch-hunt this time around.
Except trent hit shield shoulder first and got the ball as he hit him.
Selwood didnt get the ball or touch any part of mansell apart from his head.

media narrative is that Finlayson will get a fine.

even though the footage shows him running 20m and gritting his teeth and trying to detach ferrets ear from his head, with his elbow.

so he'll get a fine

what is Deliberate/high Contact/low impact worth?

cause thats unequivocally what it is.

in English, he tried to take his head off and missed

Hocking got off as mooted by Arse Browne. The game has become too contrived for me, won't be attending games until further notice.

BUMPS OR MAKES FORCEFUL CONTACT TO AN OPPOSITION PLAYER FROM FRONT-ON WHEN THAT PLAYER HAS THEIR HEAD DOWN OVER THE FOOTBALL

Do these *smile* read their own bullsh!t?

It is odd how the journos very accurately predict these outcomes.
