    Would be good if Geelong/Collingwood was on television. Shame we'll get nothing but scraps here - probably North Melbourne vs. Melbourne.

    What I don't understand is how the tribunal said there was 'high contact'. There clearly wasn't.

    when they changed the rules in 05 or whatever to get rid of that stuff one of the changes was that contact can be with the ground eg slamming a player's head into the ground is high iirc.

    i heard some guy say 'high' meant the level of force too but i think that was wrong

    Rules changes made to protect players | Adelaide Now

    "THERE will also be stricter interpretations to dangerous tackles where a player unnecessarily and dangerously drives an opponent into the ground when their arms are pinned." i assume the high contact thing is a follow on from that

    But that's merely high impact, not contact.

    Surely.


    The rule is broken. Universally noone thinks that should be a three week penalty, so it must be broken.

    Pretty stupid from Bailey.

    The laws of the game are vague in the sense that they only refer to 'rough conduct' and nothing specific to this situation, but the video on the laws of the game released this year which pertains to rough conduct is clear. You can't do what Trengove did.

    You can argue about whether or not it should be considered rough conduct, and I don't think it should, but the rule is there and it's clear.

    That can't be right. If the tribunal found that it was body contact as opposed to high contact, it would only be a level two offence, the penalty of which for rough conduct is 225 points (i.e. a two match suspension).

    The MRP assessed it as high contact originally which is where the three game suspension came from, but if the tribunal has found otherwise shouldn't he only receive two matches?
