Patrick Dangerfield accepts suspension, is now ineligible for Brownlow
Patrick Dangerfield cannot win this year’s Brownlow Medal.
The Geelong ace has accepted his one-match ban for a tackle on Matthew Kreuzer that left the Carlton ruckman concussed.
Dangerfield, who won the award last season, was favourite to win it again this year.
Dustin Martin now shapes as an overwhelming favourite.
Dangerfield will miss this week’s clash with Sydney.
But the tribunal will sit tonight, with Hawthorn veteran Luke Hodge deciding to contest his one-week striking charge.
