The story seems to have been pulled by The Age for some reason - maybe legals.

Crux of the article was that an un-named player was under investigation for a sexual assault whilst overseas in September. Complaint made by a woman upon her return to Melbourne on October 2nd.

The plot thickens! The Age has removed the article and tweets have been deleted......!

Article suggested that Melbourne FC was aware and had notified AFL.

I notice the article has been pulled from the Age online, breaking news one minute, then gone before I could open it.

Search result on the now missing url gives the following preview.

Checked all the other Fairfax sites but all 404.

I'd say it's MFC, not a "Melbourne Team" since the result actually has an MFC logo in the thumbail (not shown below)

I assume twitter or insta will have a photo on there of whoever went on the trip.

Won't be long until someone works out a shortlist.

There's a couple of photos of the four listed on Maxy's Insta.

Well there we go.

That's a pretty short [censored] list.

given no formal complaint has been made in nearly 3 months and it is outside the legal jurisdiction of australia, it is hard to see this going anywhere except all over the social media.

given this was reported in october i wonder why the news is being leaked now

still, i do hope the accusation is not true

Why or why do I read Demonland etc in the off-season?  When you think about it, you'll only find bad news since nothing good can happen beyond x is back in full training and the usual training the house down statements.

Supposedly reported to Victoria Police on October 2.  Happened in September (obviously).

Not great, but not the biggest news I've heard.

We found out today that Jack Viney can benchpress 155 kg which was pretty cool.

It was a good day.

Until now.

Agreed dc, however, if there is any substance to it, it is a major major [censored] up and a PR disaster.

Obviously hoping not true, but how would it work if charges were laid? Court over there and whatever follows?

Let's just hope the person making the allegations is ok. Can't imagine the pain or trauma someone goes through when something like this occurs. Whether guilty or innocent, they felt the need to come forward. Hope the club and Afl ensure her wellbeing is the number 1 priority.

everyhing else is second

Please no naming of "potential" players until confirmed in the media. All posts with unsubstantiated potential player names will be deleted.
