COVID Breaches by Clubs Could Derail Season

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Will Buckley buckle under pressure and admit the buck stops with him for bucking the protocols?  Buckley’s I’d say. Anyway it will cost him big bucks.

Eddie McGuire is having the worst season for a club president in recent memory.

He would be delisted if he was a player.

As much as they are ambulance chasers why a great quote to stir the pot by Purple.

Apparently the AFL have stood down Mitch Cleary after he posted Cotchin's wife's insta story on Twitter.

Not that we really believed it in the first place but...

There goes the idea that AFL media were independent and the AFL would not expect any favours.

A disgraceful decision from a corrupt organisation in the AFL.

Mitch is one of the more respected journos going around and love reading his content. Always good around the trade and draft period also.

[censored] you Brooke Cotchin.

I like Mitch Cleary. Feel for the bloke. There are a lot more grubby journalists out there. I hope he finds another gig.

Does anyone actually believe that any media folk are really unbiased and fearless, or as the ABC charter says “without bias or agenda”😂😂😂?

Pretty petty on the part of the AFL. 

No wonder we can’t believe much that we hear or read anymore.  No trust.  
 

And I haven’t listened to any AFL today - has anyone anywhere had a go at Eddie’s unbelievable (yes, even for him) hypocrisy?

Wow. A new low for the AFL. I feel some litigation coming on from Mitch.

And not surprised that bimbo Brooke Cotchin broke the rules so blatantly.  [censored] her and her dopey husband.

Obviously Brooke is annoyed that the 'rules' stop her as an Instagram 'influencer' getting free stuff in return for talking products up. It is the new grifting. Just pay like everyone else does.

'Poor' Brooke and Trent They are doing it tough says Hardwick

I bet it isn't as tough as Mitch Cleary stood down for doing his job, a job he may not get back. 

Whateley was scathing this morning:

There’s a couple of layers to this. There’s no understating the tension that has existed between the three parties in this – the Cotchins, Richmond and the AFL,” he said.

“Part of the resolution was that the family would not be named, not withstanding Brooke Cotchin had published her own material in the public domain.

“It had been mentioned previously on radio and then Mitch Cleary put it out there.

“I think there’s every reason behind the scenes that prompted a level of fury and the AFL flinched.”

It sounds like Richmond lent on the AFL to take action against Cleary.  Shameful for the AFL to have caved in to the pressure. 

Ms Cotchin willingly went to the beautician, willingly posted to social media then cries foul.  Wear the consequences and don't go after an innocent person.

I would have a some level of sympathy for the Cotchins if it hasn't been posted by her on Social Media.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears. But unli

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th
