Both players had their bans upheld in the tribunal, with Fyfe needlessly accruing an extra 69 carryover points.
Fremantle’s Nat Fyfe was unsuccessful in challenging his two-week ban for striking, while North Melbourne veteran Brent Harvey was banned for three weeks for misconduct.
Fyfe was given the suspension for an off-the-ball incident involving Hawthorn’s Jordan Lewis during the Dockers’ 19-point win over the Hawks on Sunday.
Even with an early guilty plea Fyfe would have reduced his sanction to 207.19 points and he still would have missed the final two matches of the home-and-away season.
However, the failed challenge means the penalty stands at 276.5 points, meaning he will miss Sunday’s game with the Brisbane Lions at the GABBA and the Dockers’ last round clash with Port Adelaide at Patersons Stadium.
North Melbourne veteran Robert Harvey was handed a three-game ban for throwing Western Bulldogs player Liam Picken to the ground and pinning him with a forearm to the throat.
The misconduct charge was referred straight to the tribunal, with the three-man panel reportedly only needing five-minutes to come to the decision of finding Harvey guilty.
Harvey will miss games against Adelaide and Melbourne as well as the first week of AFL finals, of which the Kangaroos look on track to reach.
