Jed Lamb is not expected
to pursue any further action against Bomber Mark Baguley after the Essendon defender directed a sledge at the Blues forward about his father which led to a melee between the Blues and Bombers players.
Lamb's father was murdered in a brutal axe attack in 1999.
Lamb is believed to have accepted Baguley's apology after the game, despite having told the Essendon lock-down defender not to discuss his father during the contest.
It has been suggested Baguley was unaware of Lamb's father's death.

Alastair Clarkson says James Sicily will learn not to retaliate to his antagonists on the field as he matures.
Sicily gave away seven free kicks in the Hawks' seven-point loss to Carlton at Etihad Stadium, losing his composure in front of umpires and retaliating against opponent Jed Lamb, who was unrelenting in his defensive forward role on the young Hawk.
"It'll be a really great learning game for him. That's AFL footy and I'd much rather it happen now early in his career when it's a dead-rubber game," Clarkson said.
"He was getting smacked a fair bit and he's the retaliator. The umpires pay the retaliator rather than apply the discipline to the Carlton player in the first instance who is doing the hitting.
"We're on the receiving end this time, but plenty of other times we've been the team to dish that sort of stuff out."

The AFL has succeeded in its historic first-ever appeal of a Tribunal decision, with Richmond defender Bachar Houli's ban for striking Carlton's Jed Lamb increased to four matches.
Lamb was left unconscious after the hit and has been ruled out of the side to face Adelaide at the MCG on Saturday.
Houli accepted the decision after the verdict was handed down, with the Tribunal originally handing him a two-game suspension.
"The decision's been made and I accept it," Houli said.
"Point number two, my concern is and always has been for Jed and I hope he recovers really quickly.
"The other thing is we move on with life and I'll do my best to help the team prepare for the next few games."

The AFL is appealing Bachar Houli's two-game suspension for striking Carlton's Jed Lamb.
"The AFL wishes to advise that general manager football operations Simon Lethlean today notified the AFL Appeal Board and the Richmond Football Club that the AFL would appeal the two-game suspension imposed on Richmondís Bachar Houli for striking Carltonís Jed Lamb during the first quarter of Sundayís round 14 match at the MCG," the League said in a written statement.
"Mr Lethlean said the AFL had appealed the two-game suspension on the grounds the sanction imposed was manifestly inadequate."
Jed Lamb has yet to train since being knocked out by Tiger Bachar Houli but Carlton remains hopeful the forward will be available this week's clash against Adelaide.
Tuesday, 27 June 2017
Bachar Houli has been banned for two games after the Tribunal found him guilty of intentionally striking Carlton's Jed Lamb.
Houli categorically denied intending to strike Lamb in the head.
"It's false, absolutely false. I've never hit anyone in my life," Houli said.
Monday, 26 June 2017
Bachar Houli has contacted Jed Lamb to apologise for the swinging arm that ended the Carlton forward's game.
"I texted him last night, obviously feeling remorse about it," Houli said.
"He texted back, obviously said, 'It's all good mate, a bit rattled', but the good thing is that he's stable which is good and that's the most important thing."
Houli denied the contact was intentional.
"Absolutely not, that's unlike me, I've been playing for 11 years and I've never had an incident like that in my life, I should say, not only my footy career," he said.

In a separate deal, the Blues then on-traded pick No.28 together with No.77, 95 and Geelong's 2016 first-round pick (acquired in the Lachie Henderson trade) to Greater Western Sydney for Lachie Plowman, Jed Lamb, Andrew Phillips and Liam Sumner and pick No.8.

Jed Lamb will join Carlton or remain at the Giants, according to his manager Matt Bain.
"At this stage, it probably looks like he'll stay at GWS or go to Carlton," Bain said.
"They [Essendon] wanted to have a chat to him, but at the time they didn't have a coach ? where Carlton had every going with 'Bolts' [coach Brendon Bolton] already.
"He knows Silvagni really well through the switch from Sydney to GWS and that all aligns, so at this stage, it looks like Carlton."

Jed Lamb says he had the support of the Swans' leadership group to seek greater opportunities at GWS.
"They just said we understand and you've got to look after yourself and there's more opportunity out there hopefully this year," Lamb said.
"Once I told them I was moving it was a bit of weight off the shoulders.
"I was a bit nervous telling them at first because I thought they'd be a bit filthy but once I told them they were good about it and I just felt so much better.

GWS coach Leon Cameron says Jed Lamb, who was picked up in the pre-season draft, will balance the Giants' list nicely.
"He's a player we think is on the verge of stepping in and playing a major role in our forward line, whether it be a high half-forward flanker or a crumbing goalkicker," Cameron said.
"What we've seen in his performances this year for the Swans when he played 12 games and just missed out on the finals sides, we thought he's a great chance to join our footy club and we're lucky enough to have him."

Tuesday, 19 November 2013
Jed Lamb says leaving Sydney to join GWS was a decision that was too good to pass up.
"The contract the Swans put together was all right, but my manager said to hold off and see what happens," Lamb said.
"It wasn't until the second week of the trade period that my manager gave me a call and said 'GWS have offered you a really good contract'.
"There are still a lot of injured blokes to come back at the Swans and with Buddy Franklin coming in, it's a different position, but he's another player that's got to play each week.
"Towards the end of the year a few boys jumped in front of me and I was pretty disappointed not to play finals, but I guess that's footy.
"I had a chat to my manager and my family and thought the best thing for me was to come here and try to play a lot more senior footy."
Wednesday, 13 November 2013
After agreeing to a three-year deal with GWS in late October, Jed Lamb delists himself from the Swans and will officially join the Giants via the pre-season draft.
The Swans were unable to arrange a trade for Lamb in October and refused to delist the young forward to allow him to be picked up as a delisted free agent.

Jed Lamb expresses a desire to be traded from the Swans to GWS.
"Jed Lamb is a very impressive young player who we hope will be able to play a variety of roles at the Giants," Giants list manager Stephen Silvagni said.
"He is highly rated, can kick goals and will be a great fit for our list."

Jed Lamb talks about offering a place at his house to Gary Rohan while Rohan was recovering from a serious leg injury.
"He was living with Dan Hannebery and (former Swan) Dylan McNeil and they liked eating out. Because I was best mates with him, I said 'You're more than welcome to come stay'," Lamb said.
"We set him up in our sun room, I started cooking for him and just looked after him with Tommy Walsh and (another former Swan in) Eugene Kruger.
"I was just happy to help out. I can't imagine what he went through. Sixteen months out of footy and at the start he probably thought he'd never play again.
"It's been a long, amazing journey."

Tuesday, 8 February 2011
Sydney Swans draftee Jed Lamb is hoping to use the NAB Cup to push his claims for an AFL debut this season.
"It's one thing to get drafted and another to play AFL, and my dream wasn't just to get drafted, I wanted to play. I don't have any expectations this year, but we'll see how it goes," he said.
"Sydney's a good club in giving opportunities, I think five of our six draftees played senior football last year."
