Demons lose Moloney to suspension

Melbourne's joy at beating Port Adelaide by one point on Saturday night has been soured through the suspension of midfielder Brent Moloney for one AFL game for making forceful front-on contact.

Moloney was charged with a level-two bump on Port's Tom Logan which the match review panel assessed as reckless and high, but of low impact.

The Demon's good record helps ease the pain as it reduced his 250 demerit points to 187.50, but he will still miss this Saturday's clash against Geelong unless he can successfully challenge at the tribunal on Tuesday.

Two Port players were reported, both for striking Melbourne defender Colin Garland in separate incidents.

Small forward Jason Davenport was suspended for one game for his third-quarter strike, but will risk a two-game ban if he challenges at the tribunal.

His teammate Jay Schulz can escape with a reprimand for his fourth-quarter strike.

Port host winless Richmond on Saturday.

Collingwood's Chris Dawes and Richmond's Mitch Farmer can also escape with reprimands.

Dawes was booked for engaging in rough conduct against Geelong captain Cameron Ling on Friday night at the MCG, and Farmer was reported for striking Essendon's Michael Hurley at the same venue on Saturday night.

St Kilda star Brendon Goddard was fined for making negligent contact with an umpire at Subiaco Oval on Sunday.

Goddard was fined $2400 for a second offence, but can reduce that to $1800 through a guilty plea.

Fremantle's Nathan Fyfe was also charged with making umpire contact, at the SCG on Saturday.

Fyfe was fined $1200 for a first-time offence but can reduce that to $900 by pleading guilty.
