Charges Laid
Steven Baker, St Kilda, has been charged with a level three striking offence against Steve Johnson, Geelong Cats, at the start of the first quarter of the round 13 match between St Kilda and the Geelong Cats, played at the MCG on Friday June 25, 2010.
 
In summary, his previous poor record means that his two-game sanction must remain at two games, even with an early plea.
 
The incident was assessed as intentional conduct (three points), low impact (one point) and high contact (two points). This is a total of six activation points, resulting in a classification of a level three offence, drawing 225 demerit points and a two-match sanction. He has an existing bad record of seven matches suspended within the last three years, increasing the penalty by 50 per cent to 337.50 demerit points and a three-match sanction. An early plea reduces the penalty by 25 per cent to 253.13 points and a two-match sanction.

In summary, his previous poor record means that his one-game sanction must remain at one game, even with an early plea.
 
The incident was assessed as intentional conduct (three points), low impact (one point) and body contact (two points). This is a total of five activation points, resulting in a classification of a level two offence, drawing 125 demerit points and a one-match sanction. He has an existing bad record of seven matches suspended within the last three years, increasing the penalty by 50 per cent to 187.50 points and a one-match sanction. An early plea reduces the penalty by 25 per cent to 140.63 points and a one-match sanction.
 
Where a player has been charged with multiple offences during one match, the points for each offence where the player either accepts a penalty or is found guilty are added together to form a total amount. For each amount of 100 points in the total penalty, there must be one match served as a result.

Where a player has been charged with multiple offences during one match, a player can only have existing carry-over points for a previous offence added to one charge if a player accepts a penalty or is found guilty of multiple charges. The existing carry-over points for the previous offence are NOT added to each separate guilty charge. Further, the points for each offence where the player either accepts a penalty or is found guilty are added together to form a total amount.
 
Other incidents assessed
Contact between the Geelong Cats’ David Wojcinski and St Kilda’s Andrew McQualter from the third quarter of Friday’s game was assessed. The panel said that Wojcinski dived in to contest the ball. The Geelong player’s eyes were on the ball at all times and he reaches the ball before contact is made. As he was contesting possession and reached the ball, no further action was taken.
 
Contact between St Kilda’s Sam Fisher and the Geelong Cats’ Jimmy Bartel from the fourth quarter of Friday’s game was assessed. The panel said Bartel was being attended by club staff after a contest for the ball in the middle of the ground. Fisher was watching the play upfield, and was the closest opponent to the Geelong player. As Bartel prepared to move off the ground, with two club staff in very close proximity to him, Fisher was standing still watching the play upfield, with his eyes not on the Geelong player and staff. From all available vision that was viewed, including vision that was not broadcast during the match telecast, the play downfield then moved at the time that Bartel moves into Fisher’s path to begin leaving the ground. Fisher has his eyes on the play down the ground and steps forward and minor contact is made by Fisher to Bartel. The panel said that Fisher’s focus was play at the end of the ground and the contact was not deemed unreasonable in the circumstances. No further action was taken.
 
Contact between Melbourne’s Brad Miller and the Adelaide Crows’ Patrick Dangerfield from the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game was assessed. Due to the inconclusive nature of the vision available, which could not determine where contact was made to player Dangerfield, no further action was taken.
