    1. Charge/Incident
    Category of the offence. i.e. High Tackle - intentional, reckless or careless.

    2. Charge/Grade
    Charges are graded 1 to 5 with one being the lightest grading and five the most serious. The charge and grading determine the base penalty a player may receive. On rare occasions, the Match Review Committee will not recommend a grading because of the seriousness of an incident. In such instances the charge will be automatically referred to the Judiciary.

    3. Base penalty
    The scheduled points for this charge not taking into account the time of plea or the player's record (see main table).

    4. Seven years incident free
    If a player has played grade football for seven years or more and has not been convicted of an offence in the seven years preceding the charge, the player is entitled to a reduction equivalent to 25 per cent of the base penalty.

    A player who has qualified for the seven-year incident-free discount and their first offence is Careless High Tackle Grade 1, no loading will apply for this charge towards any future charge.

    A player who has played seven years incident-free in grade football and is convicted of an offence other than a Careless High Tackle Grade 1, the loading period (the length of time the offence remains on his record for the purposes of increasing future penalties) will be reduced from two years to one year for this first offence. This would not apply if the player has been found guilty of a referred charge, which remains at a two-year period.

    5. Demerit points
    The points the player will face taking into account his playing record but excluding carry-over points.

    Early plea
    If the player enters an early plea to the offence and accepts the grading, the player is entitled to a reduction of 25 per cent of the base penalty and also a similar reduction in any increases due to other previous offences. A player can enter an early plea up until midday on the day following the charge.

    Alternatively, the player may prefer to have the charge heard by the panel by either entering a not guilty plea or a guilty plea but dispute the grading. If found guilty at the subsequent hearing, the player receives no reduction unless the panel reduces the grading. If the player pleads guilty but disputes the grading and the panel does reduce the grading, the player also receives the benefit of the early plea discount.

    Guilty
    The points normally awarded should the player be found guilty by the judiciary panel.

    6a. Prior similar offences
    If the player has been convicted of the same or similar offence in the two-year period immediately preceding the incident, the player is liable to an increase equivalent to 50 per cent of the base penalty for each previous offence. For the offence of a Careless High Tackle Grade 1, players only carry this loading for a 12-month period.

    6b. Prior non-similar offences
    Further, if the player has been previously convicted of an offence other than the same offence in the two-year period immediately preceding the incident, the player is liable to an increase equivalent to 20 per cent of the base penalty for each previous offence. For the offence of a Careless High Tackle Grade 1, players only carry this loading for a 12-month period.

    7. Carry-over points
    Note when reading the charge sheet, the carry-over points are always added to the penalty points to determine the penalty to be served. i.e. John White’s early plea result would be 286 + 62 = 348. A player’s carryover points will be progressively reduced by five points for each match he competes in without further charge.

    8. Send Off
    In the event a player is sent from the field for misconduct, the player will receive a discount from any resulting charge for that incident. The player will have one point deducted from the charge for each minute of the match he misses due to the send off.

    So Glen should have around 50 points deducted from any he is charged with? Is that right?

    Don't forget players can get sent straight to the judiciary with no gradings. That usually means a hefty penalty.
