The thing is, iv'a, what you write is a bit surprising coming from someone who chairs a domestic violence committee. I don't know where integrity comes into ti.  Then again, I used to chair an ethics committee.  Strange places we can wind up.

i didn't think it was ethical to be part of a committee, let alone be the chair and let alone ethics be the raison d'etre :lol:

Jacko, I'm interested in your stance on this subject, especially given your moniker is a play on Jake The Muss, the wife-beating character from Once Were Warriors...

Sorry Stuie i didn't put a GIF up

i forgot you don't use words...

And please don't tell me Wilson was not hammered hard on here because she was. 

Caro loves to go hard at The Man

She just copped a bit back and didn't like it. 

In today's world it is not funny to joke about wanting to see people die.   

I wouldn't laugh at it.

It would be interesting to know the background of the people and there opinions, things like education level, age, socioeconomic factors, etc. There may be no link but it would almost be more interesting if there wasn't one and it would show that pervading attitudes are pervasive across the whole of society, not just in some segments. 

I believe there is no link.  Like many abhorrent behaviours in our society the person can come from any part.

You're right. Why aren't females castigating females who condone kiiling men? I present you one of The AGE's finest journalists.

It was really to point out the double standards. Violence against anyone is bad. Threatening violence is bad. Eddie should know better and in my view should be censured by the AFL. But let's not be selective about who cops it. Let's not excuse/ignore others just because they happen to be female.

I agree with you on the point in bold.

But what you're effectively saying is that it's ok to refuse to censure this behaviour on the basis that other behaviour isn't being censured elsewhere in the universe.

Got no idea what you mean Geoff.  What have I said that is surprising for someone who chairs a domestic violence committee?

Disagree. The physical act of hurting a woman begins with a mindset that threats, aggressive behaviour and 'jokes' about hurting or killing a woman are acceptable. Violence against women can be verbal.

As I stated in my initial post, this is a popular viewpoint. Do you mind please helping me tease out the dynamic at play here? For starters, what percentage of incidents of domestic violence do you think occurred because the perpetrator, who otherwise would never commit an act of domestic violence, heard a joke similar to McGuire's?

Then, could you please put a percentage figure next to the following factors, of how important you think they are in contributing to an act of domestic violence:

- the reprehensible behaviour of the individual

- the behaviour of close male role models during the childhood of the perpetrator

- mental illness

- drug or alcohol abuse

- jokes like McGuire's

Then, if you've ever said, "I could just kill x for not cleaning her room/ for forgetting to pay me back/ for taking the last tim tam" OR if you've ever heard someone else say that but not challenged them, are you willing to admit that you have contributed to domestic violence in Australia?

I think there probably are some links but they would not be absolutes. At a guess (and I may [censored] some people off here) people that hold the view that this is all a bit of fun would more likely be part of one of the following groups;

- Older (from a generation where everything was better and people just copped things on the chin)

- Lower education and tradies (some of my best mates are highly educated tradies but I have worked with enough tradies to know there are some serious idiots out there)

- Men who have predominately male families, socialise predominantly with men (sporting clubs etc), work with men, went to all boy schools, don't get exposed to strong, independent, intelligent women much.

These are very broad brush strokes and I am certainly not saying all people from these groups think that way but I would think the percentage would be higher than in the opposite groups, and conversely there would be people in the opposite groups who are just the same, just not as many.

Would be interesting to know the truth of the matter and if I am just a judgmental snob!

What's wrong with 'Gee what a crap journalist with no integrity' (or something else relevant to their professional relationship) rather than 'wouldn't it be great to drown her'.

As jnrmac said, you could be fired, or worse SUED!


I think Chris' summary of iv'as word are how i feel.  It is great to bring awareness to such a terrible thing like violence against women but why do they get singled out?  There is such a thing as violence against men too, and children and animals.  Why do we feel the need to single women out again, I think that's what gets my goat when things like this come up.  It's always spoken that women are equal, so why in these matters do we single them out?  And sometimes it is women's groups that do it too. Why not have an ad campaign about all violence being a terrible thing that should never be condoned, no matter the colour, age, sex etc.  Women are stronger than they ever have been when it comes to physical & mental abuse, while creating awareness for the issue is great, and may get people thinking differently, i think it sometimes hinders other areas like equality.

So when is anyone who is bashing the triple M crew gonna acknowledge that 3AW commentators said the exact same comments about Wilson on their station with Carro in the box at the time and she just laughed it off and said "Oh boys".

they too said people would be lining up to push her down the slide and made the same joke about holding her under.

Corro didn't mention a thing about 3AW in her article today about McGuire and the triple M commentators.

either go after everyone or no one at all.

Surely this isn't true, surely.

Women are singled out in this as women are over represented in domestic violence figures, especially deaths. It annoys me as well that men are forgotten in the domestic violence discussion but that is another rant I have.

Men are over represented in deaths from coward punches, hence the campaign about coward punches being aimed at men. 

The only real way to be engaged is if men start to actually stand up and say something. Standing up for the women in our lives and against the cowards punch is doing this. We can do both separately and it doesn't detract from the other. Jump on board and speak up against all of it as it is all crap and should not be tolerated.

So as a society, we'd prefer to fire someone when they question someone's professionalism, but not when we advocate violence against them. Excellent.

And to the second point - I think you're either being disingenous, or dumb as a brick, to suggest there is no press or publicity around violence against men, children and animals. Not seen any of the one-punch campaigning? Or cruelty to animals ads? 

The reason we are discussing violence against women in this instance is because there was a specific incident where violence against women was raised.

All i am saying is that when 1 issue is raised it takes away from others, lets all concentrate on this issue now and forget about the coward punch, or the way animals are treated overseas when they are live exported. It just bugs me how the media and specific groups control the focus of such issues, while others are forgotten, that's all.

No where have i said this is acceptable behavior.

Well hey, maybe if men were dying at the same rate as women from domestic violence then the attention would be more even. Think of that maybe?

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September?

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up.

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range
