All eight AFL finals combatants are free to enter the first week of the playoffs without tribunal headaches.

The match review panel offered only one player a suspension from round 23 action - Brisbane defender Daniel Merrett, who was slapped with a two-match ban for striking St Kilda's Shane Savage.

Five other players - including Sydney's Sam Naismith, North Melbourne's Lindsay Thomas and Greater Western Sydney's Devon Smith - can accept $1000 fines.
