'Bad behaviour' of AFL hub families slammed

  'Bad behaviour' of AFL hub families slammed AFL insider Caroline Wilson has delivered a stern reality check to the families of footy players amid reports of hub breaches.This week 400 family members of AFL players - many from Victorian hot spots - will be tested and touch down on the Gold Coast to be close to their nearest and dearest for the coming rounds held in the state.

The AFL will investigate whether Swans debutant Sam Wicks wore illegal studs in his boots after a horrific injury to Collingwood’ s Isaac Quaynor . It’ s been labelled a “freak accident” but the AFL are set to look into the reason behind this horrific injury.

Quaynor was hurt during the final quarter of the Magpies' tense nine-point win on Thursday night when he tackled Wicks in the Gabba' s centre square. Experienced teammates Adam Treloar (hamstring) and Will Hoskin-Elliott (knee) were also injured in the costly victory.

Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley has questioned whether metal stops were responsible for a freakish and gruesome injury to young gun Isaac Quaynor in the nine-point win over Sydney at the Gabba on Thursday night.

Quaynor was taken from the field on a medicab after a 20-centimetre-plus gash opened up on his lower leg in the fourth quarter when he clashed with Swans debutant Sam Wicks.

"His studs sort of raked across his shin and actually split his shin six or eight inches completely open. The kid could have had metals studs in as well, so that was his bad luck, to tackle the only kid that had that,'' Buckley said.

  How Clarko non-fine exposed AFL double-standard The AFL's rules state clearly that coaches should not publicly comment on officials, yet Alastair Clarkson avoided a fine.Clarkson went at the officials following Hawthorn's loss to Sydney, claiming that the disparity in the free kick count made it seem like the Swans had an extra player.

An Australian Federal Police spokesman wouldn't comment further on the case, saying "it is an ongoing investigation ". Australian politician' s staffer investigated for advancing China' s interests.

"I haven't heard of that happening in all my time in footy. Studs pierce the skin periodically ??? but you would never see what happened to Isaac in that last quarter ever.''

Swans coach John Longmire said he was not sure what sort of boots Wicks was wearing but a Sydney spokesman confirmed he was wearing standard "screw-ins".

The AFL is set to investigate the incident. Some reports have suggested that Wicks had a mixture of metal and plastic studs in his boots.

Meanwhile, Buckley says the compressed 2020 fixture possibly had a role to play in the hamstring injury to superstar midfielder Adam Treloar in the hard-fought victory.

After playing Fremantle in Perth on Sunday, the Pies backed up in Brisbane on Thursday night when Treloar - who has a history of hamstring injuries - left the field in the third quarter.

The holding the ball rule is not footy

  The holding the ball rule is not footy A young boy stands in any other year than this one. He’s barely nine, and he’s cold. It’s a crisp Sunday morning, and the sun’s peaking over the horizon just. He pulls up his socks, because his coach always tells them it’s important to look the part. He just hopes he gets out onto the ground this time. It gets cold on the bench. This game, he has his chance. The big man in a dark coat before him turns to him, his beard bristling in the cold morning as his breath frosts. “I want you to go in there, and to get the ball,” he says. The boy goes out there, but young boys are forgetful. He got distracted.

Luis Velázquez, Cuba’ s most senior scientist, says joint inquiry needed to find truth behind alleged attacks on diplomats.

Collingwood were down to one fit player on the interchange bench when Josh Daicos produced the magical match-winner with Adam Treloar (hamstring), Will Hoskin-Elliott (knee) and Isaac Quaynor (shin) all sidelined.

Treloar is likely to miss three weeks with what the Collingwood senior coach described as a "minor" hamstring issue with the hectic travel schedule potentially contributing to the injury.

Hoskin-Elliott had bone bruising to his knee.

"'Ads' [Treloar] at this stage is a minor hammy. You'd be looking at three weeks for that ??? that could be 12 games, who knows with the compressed fixture. He'll miss some footy,'' Buckley said.

"Whatever I answer [on the schedule's impact on Treloar's injury], even if I say ???a little' well then it has a contribution, doesn't it? I think everything goes into the mix.

"We planned to really aggressively rotate our players. 'Ads' was one we would have looked after next week and we really do want to share the load. We've played off four-day breaks before but not multiple times.

Positives aplenty from the first half of the most unique season yet

  Positives aplenty from the first half of the most unique season yet So many AFL fans are grumbling at the moment. Some are angry that players, partners and support staff can’t seem to abide by strict hub protocols, others are frustrated at the novel and largely incongruous holding the ball interpretation. Any and all misgivings are magnified by the fact that we can’t vent our pent-up AFL energy in the stands each week. That said, thankfully we have a game (and the state of it) to moan about at all.

"I've got no doubt that you will see situations like this, and we know that there's extra demands on players and on clubs. It's the situation you are going to find yourself in.''

Buckley is confident that Collingwood have the depth to cover the bulging casualty ward and have a "squad" mentality for 2020. He said they were "up for anything" and were prepared to do "whatever it takes" to cope with the unprecedented demands of the season.

The Pies slaughtered the Sherrin for most of the night going inside 50 and only sealed the contest when Daicos showed the mercurial bloodlines are strong in his family with a brilliant match-winner from the boundary line in the dying minutes.

Buckley - who briefly crossed paths with Peter Daicos at the Magpies in the 1990s - enjoyed the miraculous match-winner that clinched a victory where Collingwood's inaccuracy made it much harder than it should have been.

"I felt pretty good about it [Daicos' goal]. We struggled to find the middle of the big sticks for most of the night after dominating in general play ??? that was a bit of individual brilliance that helped give us a little bit of wriggle room,'' he said.

AFL to probe Swan over boots after gruesome cut

  AFL to probe Swan over boots after gruesome cut The AFL is set to launch a probe into Sydney youngster Sam Wicks' boot studs after Isaac Quaynor was left with a deep cut.With the game on the line in the fourth quarter, Quaynor attempted to run down Wicks from behind, but as he brought Wicks down, his shin landed on the back of the youngster's boot, leaving him with a gruesome cut.

The scrutiny of a car insurance investigation can be overwhelming. Learn what investigators look for and navigate the process like a pro. As such, you can expect the company to see whether it finds cause to deny your claim, in full or in part.

If possible a safety net should be rigged. Tools should be carried up in secure containers or belts specially designed for carrying tools to prevent them falling and causing injury to anyone. The area below the work site should be roped off with warning signs stating that people are working aloft.

"The negatives of it, the lack of finish ??? they are cream on the cake. The cake was really positive, the way that we set the ground up, our willingness inside, the pressure on them and our ability to win the ball was really strong.

"I thought we defended the ground really well for the most part and we actually used it OK through the midfield. It's just that last kick. We were largely able to impose ourselves on the game and control the game for pretty much all of it.

"We could have lost it in the end, but we do need to finish and that will come.''

Meanwhile, Swans coach John Longmire said his side could have pinched the win despite the Pies enjoying so much possession.

"I thought we were a chance of getting it. We had an opportunity there. We got to within two points and I thought we had a bit of momentum in that last bit,'' he said.

"Clearly, they had more scoring shots but if you've got the ability to get within two points, you're every chance of grabbing it.

"It was disappointing that we made a couple blues in that last five minutes which meant we didn't get it done.

"Sometimes you've got to learn the hard way and we certainly learned from an A-grade quality team tonight.

"We gave away a lot of free kicks around stoppages. There's no question we played so much football in the back half."

Collingwood again on the wrong side of the AFL and its minions .
What an absolute shock that there will be no sanction on Sydney’s Sam Wicks for wearing metal-studded boots and seriously injuring Collingwood young gun Isaac Quaynor. I just wonder what the penalty would’ve been had it been Quaynor in the metal boots and Wicks who was injured. I’m sure there would’ve been sanctions. Journalists would’ve clamoured for them. The likes of Mark Robinson and Caroline Wilson would’ve used their various platforms to implore that the league impose strict penalties to ensure that this would never, ever happen again. Nope. Nothing (as of yet) from them.
