The AFL match review panel has thrown out Alan Didak's report for rough conduct on Carlton's Heath Scotland.

The panel ruled that Didak's contact on Scotland was accidental.

There had been widespread speculation that the Collingwood star would face at least a two-week suspension, which would have ruled him out of the start of the finals series, but he will now be available for Sunday's final round match against the Kangaroos at Telstra Dome.

The incident sparked an altercation between the two teams with Collingwood's Dane Swan and Ben Johnson and Carlton's Brendan Fevola all offered fines of $2400 by the panel on Monday for being involved in a melee.

However Fevola was cleared of the match day report of striking Swan after the panel ruled he merely grabbed him around the neck with an open hand.

But his Carlton teammate Jordan Bannister was offered a one-match suspension by the panel for striking Collingwood's Brodie Holland, also during the fiery aftermath from Didak's bump on Scotland.

In clearing Didak the panel said the Magpies' star goalsneak "had positioned himself to bump and had his arm and shoulder tucked in for contact" after Scotland has gained possession of the ball and Didak approached him from the side, but also slightly behind him.

The panel said Scotland attempted to avoid contact but "unfortunately contact was made to his head."

"Despite the high contact, Didak's action was viewed as a legitimate attempt to bump, therefore the contact to the head was considered accidental and the action was not considered to be a reportable offence," the panel concluded.

However Bannister was charged with a level four striking offence on Holland but can accept just a one-game ban because of his clean record over the past five years.

The incident was assessed as intentional conduct, low impact, behind play and high contact - equating to 325 points and a three-match ban.

But with a 25 percent discount both for his clean record and for an early plea, Bannister can accept just 182.81 points and a one-match ban.

Not really, but I get a hearing/reading you getting all worked up about the possibility. Don't worry, the Saints are bound to choke in the Prelim's anyway...


I'm worse in real life. I've temporarily banned myself from the SCG.

This year is looking like a replay of last season's end.
b_m, i got 4, too. I'm not sure what oztips does for draws, but 4 + draw is ok, I spose. I think you get 3 bonus points or something for tipping a draw. This is about the 3rd draw this season, I think.

Well, I can tell you all there is one very concerned little crows fan here - the injuries/illness hitting the club in the last couple of weeks is just terrible. 6 weeks ago I was booking the grand final weekend off work, now i'd just be happy to see a week go by without yet another brilliant player wiped out!! And, yes, what an awful tipping round - think I got 3!!

If you don't all know, I'm a Geelong supporter.

I'm going to be crying from now to when Cricket starts and I have something else to focus on.










Seriously though, how can a team perform a spirited fightback and fall short by a second, then capitualte to the third worst team in the competition? Actually I should correct that. Geelong are worse.

Cats fans, bleed with me...

Why are Geelong so bad?

Infact they won something like 7 of there last 11 matches or something....

Tipping ends with a nice round of 6, so I'm finished up on 116 for the year!

Finally I get to look forward to finals for the first time in two years!, even if its only for a week.

* Second Elimination Final - St Kilda v Melbourne, Friday September 8th 7.30pm (MCG)
* Second Qualifying Final - Adelaide v Fremantle, Saturday September 9th 2.30pm (AAMI Stadium)
* First Qualifying Final - West Coast Eagles v Sydney Swans, Saturday September 9th 5.30pm (Subiaco)
* First Elimination Final - Collingwood v Western Bulldogs, Sunday September 10th 2.30pm (MCG)

I actually was interviewed last night by a market research company (on behalf of the AFL) asking whether I thought the interstate teams "deserved" to host their own final. Hell, yeh!!!! BRING IT ON!!! Swans v Saints here in Sydney - dream come true, eh Anna????
