They should be banished

with 8 comments

As a Collingwood supporter, I am deeply distressed at the fiasco involving Heath Shaw and Alan Didak. Suspending them for the rest of the season is simply not good enough. Their contracts should have been terminated.

These are professional sportsmen payed big money on individual contracts. The same professional standards that apply to doctors and lawyers should also apply to professional football players.

Would society accept the same unprofessionalism in surgeons and other professions … of course not!

Even worse, these ‘professionals’ are touted as role models for our children.  They carry on like this and destroy the faith of all those dedicated kids proud to wear their favourite players number.

This abuse of privilege has been going on for years and nothing is done to eliminate it. For the sake of the club, the AFL and our kids, they should be banished from the sport

I am every bit as disappointed in these two as I was when Sophie boycotted the Sorry Day in Parliament

  1. Gotta disagree Greg. I think the penalty was more than enough … and more than what Eddie wanted to hand out too!

    Eddie & Mick got caught in their own net of leniency by jumping in too quickly and only imposing a fine without digging a bit deeper. If they had handled it properly in the first place a 2 week penalty would probably have been OK.

    This incident just shows that Eddie has not instilled the right culture among his boys. He’s just too much of a lad himself I’d say. You can take the boy out of Broady but ….

  2. PS, what happened to your picture? I’m just getting a little red X in a box, top left. That happens when the image doesn’t load properly from wordpress. Just delete it and do it again usually works.

  3. Fixed picture Ray. It was a link that didn’t want to linked to.
