The AFL Tribunal will not sit this week, after all players that came under scrutiny from the Match Review Panel accepted their sanctions.

Brisbane Lions midfielder Simon Black has accepted a reprimand and 93.75 carryover points for striking Western Bulldog Liam Picken in their 58-point win at Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

The only other sanctions from the weekend's six matches were all borne out of a melee between Melbourne and Greater Western Sydney players - all of who accepted their penalties.

Nathan Jones copped an $1800 fine for instigating the brawl, while also earning a $1200 sanction for his continued involvement.

Other Demons Daniel Nicholson, Mark Jamar and Brent Moloney all copped $1200 fines, as well as GWS' Tomas Bugg, Taylor Adams, Toby Greene and Dylan Shiel.

    The new web page is simply not as good. The layout is not intuitive and including links to Simon Black accepting a striking charge in June is simply of zero news value. Even in the last days of the old format it was clear that news items were not being refreshed. So a more logical layout instead of the random patchwork quilt and up to date articles.
