Bartlett at it again…



Recommended Posts


From the article...

“As president, a workplace/OHS lawyer, and a parent, I was not willing to compromise on fundamental values, the law and expected standards of behaviour,” he said.

“I believe that my approach and the raising of these issues resulted in a campaign against me from various quarters that was inimical with proper administrative governance and taking seriously important though delicate and sensitive matters. It also showed, in my view, a disregard for the health and wellbeing of both me and my partner and our professional and business interests.

“Since March 2021, we have been subjected to threats, deceitful conduct, and a public campaign to discredit us professionally and personally.

“I have also, as noted above and as has been reported, complained about, and had to take action in relation to what I claim to be false and defamatory publications about me. The hurt and distress and damage caused by these publications is aggravated by the fact that they are published on the internet and that previous articles are not only present and remain on the internet but are also hyperlinked to in later articles.

“The cost has been great, in particular to our health.

“ … Having left the board last November 2021, threats towards myself and my partner were made even in February and March of this year. We have sought undertakings that the threats and contributions to defamatory publications stop – these undertakings have not been forthcoming.”

This guy is delusional, and going back to the media time and time again will really help… nonce.

Interested to know how and when he released this 'statement' and how Warner obtained it so quickly...

I’m not sure I follow. Is he trying to say that he’s not the leak? 
 

If  it What are the defamatory publications? His name was never officially connected to the Warner articles despite everyone knowing it is him.

Here’s the thing. He’s entitled to feel how he feels. What I question is, especially if these things were happening in Feb and March, why not bring them up then? Does it not feel timed to inflict damage on the club now that we look vulnerable?

I had heard from a past player that there was not much love for Glen during the latter half of his tenure... He was not a "Melbourne person" was the gist

Caro wrote an article on similar lines about a group of disgruntled past players pushing for an alternative (was it Steven Smith..??)

If this bloke did care about the club wouldn't he just shut his trap

Another one of these "professional leaders"

An HR Lawyer... 🙄 Anyone had to deal with HR recently, not a place to go to get something done!

That’s a bit like “why didn’t she bring it up then” 

 

this is all quite interesting

Yep, from what I heard he was VERY close to challenging Bartlett, was talked out of it by Melbourne people in the end I believe.

This is possibly the most anyone has ever said without actually saying anything. We're actually lucky that this entire statement didn't rip a hole in space time thus engulfing everything in the universe, such is the void of nothingness the statement amplifies.

Headline mentions drugs, anything in the actual article about drugs?

Classic Murdoch press headline writing. This is the context of it:

“I know I was not perfect however through my time at the club I treated the welfare of all of our people – from the senior coach to the boot studder – as paramount and was steadfast in my responsibility to be able to look every person (including every parent) in the eye and confirm that I was doing everything possible to have a club free of workplace bullying, gambling, harassment and illegal drugs,”

Whoa. It’s nothing like that, and I bristle at anyone suggesting i’d even say something like that (which I didn’t say).

I am not so sure Bartlett is in the wrong. I believe there is a deeper crisis at the Club than is commonly known. 

The really interesting thing about all of this which is never widely discussed but would be well known in the industry, is the headlines are all accurate. The only error is that it is industry wide and not isolated to one club.

Glen obviously didn't realise real world rules don't apply here.

No one wants you confused with Bristle BT 👀

perhaps this is a bit Transformers - there’s more than meets the eye to this. Or perhaps not

All good.

I agree there’s more to it, and it ain’t going away. I’m guessing we will find out a lot more in the next few weeks.

    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

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    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
