    Isn't shepherding allowed only within 5 meters off the ball? If it's not shepherding what is it?

    I think that is one of the points, it was far beyond 5 metres. Nearly all other players could have done the same thing and be playing next week but comes back to past record.

    If I was a North supporter I would be pretty annoyed with Harvey. Very undisciplined player. Not just because of the suspensions but also the down field/50 metre penalties he gives away.

    Buddy was guilty of the down field frees early in the year but he seems to have improved!

    You can't honestly tell me that if McGlynn was out this week for something similar you wouldn't be pretty annoyed?
    Id be pissed at benny for doing something so stupid. There was no need for harvey to do what he did - as I said, if he hadnt done as many stupid things recently, he wouldnt have so many carryover points and it wouldnt be an issue. Deserves a week just for his repeated stupidity haha!

    I dont think the hit is more than 5m away from the ball. If it is its certainly not more than 10.

    Sets a horrible precedent. Its nothing like the Fyfe one from this year as his was a crunching bump. This didnt even knock Selwood over. I agree that it shouldnt make a difference if its the season or finals as far as tribunals are concerned.

    But if Harvey is rubbed out, then Buddy should have gone following the Gold Coast game without question.

    North Melbourne wondering if anyone could give Brent Harvey a lift to the Tribunal.

    Joel Selwood has arrived at the tribunal, but in bad news for Boomer, he is still bleeding.

    I've just discovered him but a few have been too good not to share. I didn't share the one where he posted that Norf had asked if someone could give Brent a lift to the tribunal and some else posted that Buddy was available.

    It took me a while to figure out it was based on North being cash-strapped, but yeh, I favourite his tweets often lol
