MRP: JMac offered 2 matches

The match review panel has offered GWS player/coach James McDonald a two week ban for his bump on the weekend. If he accepts, there could be a few issues for our AFL Dream Teams over the next couple of rounds.

The match review panel has offered GWS player/coach James McDonald a two week ban for his bump on the weekend. If he accepts, there could be a few issues for our AFL Dream Teams over the next couple of rounds.

My tip is that he will accept the ban, as soft as others may feel it is.

The implications for our our AFL Dream Teams is pretty big if he is suspended. Some coaches want to chase his score from the weekend as he is sitting with 98 as their emergency in the midfield. The way they are looking at this is by selecting James Magner (if he doesn’t make the Melbourne team on Thursday night) on their ground as a zero who will then be replaced by JMac.

Good in theory, but if Magner is still out the following week, you might be in a hell of a lot of touble. It would be hard taking in someone you ‘think’ will play soon that isn’t selected on Thursday night when you already now that JMac will be missing Rounds 2 and 3.

In saying all of this, we will have to hold tight to see if McDonald and the Giants accept the ban… but make sure you are thinking about what it might mean for your team over the next couple of weeks!

UPDATE: Giants have accepted the ban.
