Brownlow Medal 2022: AFL boss Gillon McLachlan ‘very agitated’ by overturned Patrick Cripps tribunal call

AFL boss Gill McLachlan has doubled down on his calls for a review of the AFL Appeals Board and said he was “very agitated” by the controversial decision to overturn a two-week suspension that ultimately allowed Patrick Cripps to win the Brownlow Medal.

The Carlton skipper was banned for a fortnight in August after he was found guilty of a head-high hit on Brisbane’s Callum Ah Chee.

But after a marathon hearing, he was freed on a legal technicality after Carlton’s counsel Chris Townshend QC argued that Cripps had been denied “natural justice” in the initial hearing.

He argued that the original AFL Tribunal jury had not been adequately directed before it reached its finding.
