Talk about an about face.
    AFL hopeless and reactive. Weak as piss as usual.

    That's exactly what is was. Totally pathetic reactionary behaviour in response to the audience they hold dear.....the football journo's and fans of Victoria. Make enough noise, a la Eddie and you'll get what you want..... the sense of arrogant entitlement is sickening.

    .....and I now see the AFLPA aren't too impressed by the AFL's actions in regard to this situation.

    AFLPA concerned over 'excessive' Rampe fines - AFL.com.au

    Paul Marsh, Chief Executive AFLPA:

    "The AFLPA is concerned about the sanctions handed down to Dane Rampe," Marsh said on Tuesday night.

    "With respect to the sanction relating to comments directed at an umpire, whilst not condoning these comments, they happened in the spur of the moment, Dane was clearly contrite, issued a genuine apology and has an exemplary disciplinary record.

    "The size of the fine is excessive given these factors. In our view this was an opportunity for education rather than heavy sanctions.

    "The sanction for climbing the goalpost is puzzling given the AFL’s position that this action was not even worthy of a free kick during the game."


    Now, settle down Victoria and move on...... and AFL, have a good hard look at yourself.

    Well said Paul Marsh. Thanks Stevoswan

    I can just imagine the reaction whenever Rampe gets the ball in that next game against them at the MCG. It was bad enough last year with Buddy but this is going to be next level!

    Apparently Rampe is the seventh VFL/AFL player to be sanctioned for "shaking or climbing" a goalpost. Interestingly the first was also a Swan, Arthur Hando and his story is simply quite amazing.

    It can be read here....

    The very strange history of the goalpost shaker: Sorry Dane, you're not the first - AFL.com.au

    I still maintain that Dane was not trying to shake the post, rather be taller for a possible goal line touch.

    If he wants to stay out of trouble with the AFL he just needs to start elbowing opposition players in the head instead.

    Of course, if he elbowed somebody in the head, and then the head shook the post; then he'd be Luke Hodge.

    Thanks for spotting this story, absolutely loved it. "Just exuberance of spirits" - what a lovely way of putting it.
    I'd love for someone to explain why the 150th anniversary of Red and White Footy was ignored by both the club and it's fanbase in 2017

    It just won't go away. EFC still whinging why free kick wasn't paid against Rampe and have officially approached the AFL. Yes the umpire could've paid the free kick but there are many free kicks which are paid/not paid in a game. This was just one. We could easily make case on the dodgy free kicks EFC got in front of goal and the Heppell throw that wasn't paid which resulted in their last goal.

    I bet had free kick against Rampe been paid there would've been even bigger controversy in the media about it, with the old "you wouldn't want to decide a Grand Final like that" card brought out.

    My understanding of the goal post shaking rule (there isn't any evidence that it was Rampe's intention anyway), that it's intended for when a player has a shot for goal and misses as a result. Not when player is out of scoring range and ball drops 10 metres short. Umpire/AFL called it correctly the incident had no bearing on Myers kick. Robbo & Woosha want EFC to get 4 points based on technicality rather than reality!
