  1. Good to see some more local posts, even though I couldn’t understand Dave’s objection to Fairfax’s ample display of boobs. Poor boy’s gone all puritan!

    As for ‘decency & AFL footballers’, well what else would you expect from the Shinboners? I saw the video and I’d have to say that not only was it inappropriate, it was also pointless. Are they 15 year olds with too much time on their hands? It wasn’t worth doing.

    • I was still young when Carlton’s John Nichols was jailed for embezzlement and was allowed out of Pentridge on a Saturday to play VFL football. He was an idol and role model for all Carlton supporting kids and, what did the league’s actions teach them?

      It taught them that league footballers were above the law and now, their grandchildren playing football think they will be protected by the AFL system.

      That was the start of the ethical decline in the league and the lack of accountability these players exhibit today. Tear up their contracts, I say.

      • Well the North boys haven’t broken a law but the $5,000 fine was just far too little.

        But I agree that for serious offences AND for being detected taking drugs, players should be immediately outed and banned for at least one year. The 3 strikes policy is just too lenient and it protects them rather than change them.

        Btw, any news on that Wang ‘tip’?
