"No, it's a show of respect for our heritage for our past and for our great people that played in it, for our people who turn up .. and represent this footy club," Hinkley said.

London has defended the UK’ s decision to send a strike group, including its new £3 billion aircraft carrier, to the East Asia to visit allies and take part in exercises, claiming it is not being “provocative” towards China.

"However, the abuse that has followed has been outrageous. People should take a breath and reflect before posting."

If Miller is unable to overturn the ban, he would miss the Suns' QClash against the Brisbane Lions at Metricon Stadium on Saturday.

Melbourne star Steven May and St Kilda trio Max King, Tim Membrey and Dan Butler have escaped with fines.

The case for Essendon: Why Zach Merrett might stay at the Bombers .
After what seemed like months of speculation, Zach Merrett opened up to Mark Robinson from the Herald Sun about where things are at with Essendon as he enters free agency at the end of this year. A fairly candid Merrett told Robinson he needs to see more stability. More alignment. And he wants to be the kind of leader that mentors the baby Bombers. Yet, we still weren’t any closer to knowing where he stands with Essendon. “I haven’t made up my mind yet,” Merrett told Robinson.
