lol if u believe that story

I like to believe someone is innocent until proven guilty... I have no issue with the story as it stands, but if it is proven otherwise (the club should have CCTV footage or there are no doubt numerous phone vids circulating already), then I will be happy to criticise them.

So... You're allowed to throw a few punches if a girlfriends being harrassed?

Regardless of their success, richmond are trash. Their culture is trash.

That's not what it said, that's how you took it. See above.

Isn't it?  So whose GF was it that was being harrassed?

There's plenty of examples over the last few years that indicate their off field culture is poor.

I think you could apply that to just about every club in the comp.

Mate, the Tigers have admitted they were fighting, how do you think Bolton broke his wrist?

The implication in Juicebox's comment was that the players threw the first punches... maybe this is a case of us seeing what we want to see.

How about we wait for the facts to come out before making any assumptions about who was at fault. While I would never advocate male on male violence, isn’t that essentially what we do when the players get into a bit of a melee on the field? And wouldn’t we expect them to “fly the flag” if one of their mates get unfairly knocked out? Why would it then be a surprise if they were to defend their partners from harassment if out and about?

He said "throw some punches", not throw the first punch.

Throw some punches could mean retaliation. 

It is all so stupid anyway.

STAY OUT OF FIGHTS

Too much to lose, including yours or the other person life or health.

Hence my comment “maybe this is a case of us seeing what we want to see.

Couldn’t agree more with your last statement.

Who cares! I don’t really see Richmond figuring much in September this year. I think Port, Melbourne, Bulldogs, Swans and Brisbane May have gone past them!

Why would AFL players take gf's to a sleazy nightclub? Go to a restaurant with Dustin. I thought they went  to clubs to get picked  up  by groupies ..re  Geelong. Stkilda in past days. Do AFLW girls go to nightclubs? lol

I wouldn’t give a [censored] If someone lost their health or life because they harassed my partner or family/friends.

The world is a jungle and if you stick your nose in to other peoples business then you must accept a hospital bed or a pine box. 
If more people remembered this then perhaps there would be less smart arses.

a guy punched my girls [censored] a few years ago. I put him in hospital with a broken ashtray.

im sure he’s more respectful these days

On a serious note, love the many comments comments about 'walking away' is better, this is different to the vibe that existed even just 20 years ago. I must admit I am far from calm, when someone physically touches a friend or partner in an unwanted manner, and was in a fight when a guy slapped a gf to the head for pushing his arm away, but freely admit there was a better solution than boxing on, to be had.

It is also a thin line between standing up for someone helpless, and a man getting involved in a fight because he feels like his honour was slighted because someone touched his girl. In effect removing the right for a women to exercise her own agency (and also not be treated like property).

Are you OK?

Seem to be carrying some hate.

That distress won't help your family, friends or yourself.

Get some communication and life skills, perhaps counselling or anger management. 

Violence perpetuates violence, and your victim is probably acting the same way anyway, (I was going to say " now that smoking has been banned").Takes an intellectual/emotional leap to change.

Some men wear the pain as a badge of merit and pride.

Can't change others only yourself.

I've got an issue with rule 3.
Some are not so honourable and often trouble making [censored] who revel in any drama they can create.

Rule 1 Dont Condemn till you know the full story

Rule 2 Dont attend nightclubs that may or may not draw heat

Rule 3 Always defend honour of women

Rule 4 See rule 1 

 

Always defend the honour of women? Nah don’t love that. If men cared about the honour of ALL women maybe, but that’s not the case. 

Do we think Bolton or Rioli would step in if they saw some random girl being harassed? Not likely. This is about ownership. They should’ve just walked away.

One thing is for sure, there are double standards at that Club - one rule for expendables like Connors, Stack and Coleman-Jones and another for required players like Martin, Cotchin, Bolton and Rioli

Seems that Rioli's girlfriend was offended by random guys....Rioli tried to put an end to the situation verbally....copped a punch to the face....Bolton jumps in to smack the guy who just assaulted his mate.   Pretty straight forward, i am glad both the guys defended their gf and each other.  Rioli gf is pretty hot, could see her getting unwanted attention.  The issue is many go to nightclubs to get drunk/high or both and not much good seems to happen when it comes to altercations/booze and drugs.

It is much safer to dance at a friends house/home than risk it these days...particularly if you an AFL footy player.  They gotta live, but also make more sensible decisions in regards to their entertainment

Stop advocating for violence or having examples were it is justified. 

The other person doesn't cause you to do it. You do it, it is in your control, no matter what the circumstances. There are always better ways to handle the situation. 

There is emotional, social and physical scaring to you the victim and the bystanders, it should be avoided.at all costs.

Control those primitive urges, nothing good comes of it.

Violence against others, both strangers and domestic is an epidemic in society.

Go get help, so your feelings aren't acted out in an inappropriate way.

If there are tools harassing your partner, report it to security. If they do nothing about it, they obviously don’t want to look after their patrons, so leave.

It’s really, really easy to avoid getting in to fights.

Attitudes like picket’s belong in the 1970s. Defending women’s honour - please. I’m sure Bolton’s girlfriend is stoked he’s got a broken wrist, which he depends on for his livelihood, and a broken reputation now, all in the name of her “honour”.

Yeah, some things are learnt with experience.
Gotta remember Rioli and Bolton are in their early 20's, young, dumb and full of ... You know what.
Both at peak fitness and would feel bullet proof.
Add in the mix of alcohol, women, nightclubs and other morons it's a recipe for disaster.

Yep, exactly. We were all young and stupid once. I don’t really blame the players at all - I just hope they’ve learned a lesson from it.

It’s the 40 and 50-something men acting as if this was an inevitable/honorable outcome that really presses my buttons. We should be showing young men the right way, not reinforcing boorish, dangerous behaviour.

I wouldnt of thought that defending a womans honour was a thing any more. Let females sort it out for themselves.

Not my problem.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
