    Hawthorn culture and Fagan (Update: Fagan denies knowledge, standing down during investigation)

    In fact my dad was one of the first people to take in an indigenous worker in the most working class area of Melbourne at the time. With repercussions. The way they lived in the council housing they were apportioned amongst other social housing tainted my view for a long time. Before I came to...

    Yes. In my other life I've been involved with indigenous groups in the Douglas Council. I'm surprised you'd think I was silly enough to ask the question knowing someone would be lying in wait.

    Fagan is one person who can say he has worked with indigenous people over many years. Anyone else on this thread who can say the same let us know now so we know you're not just throwing your opinions out there.

    Where have the AFL been incompetent since they had the report ? What else did you want them to do other than what they've tried to instigate ?

    I would expect nothing else but a leading question from Q/A with the response ready to go. The report was completed a couple of weeks ago . They're trying to have an inquiry. How furiously does he want them to work ? He's just another political tosser looking to score a few points from his...

    Looks like the Feds are looking for headlines and want to make heroes of themselves as usual. Not that I'm any wrap for the AFL obviously.

    Abort doesn't mean dismissal. Far from it.

    Where did I say it didn't require investigation ? Of course it does. But it's now a media circus and some of the drivel that is now being dredged up isn't warranted It's also evident the accusatory tone that's been adopted by some on here from Day 1 and continues, trying to pretend that...

    I've got no reason to be any sort of wrap for Clarkson as a bloke but he's just being hung out to dry unfairly. People already have their minds made up on this now they're looking for anything that looks corroborative to back it up. Looks like a lynch mob to me.

    I fail to see how something can happen to one player (allegedly) out of hundreds and anyone would therefore extrapolate that as being the way all players were treated. Or even some. People are losing the plot. If this were a proper trial it would've been aborted 100 times already.

    In mathematics 2+ 2 = 4 but not necessarily in life. Jumping to conclusions because whatever is alleged to have happened to such and such has some sort of similarity to whatever is alleged to have happened here won't stand up on an evidential basis and nor should it. I'm sure players have...

    2022 Club Champion Awards

    It's not a fanboy site as far as I'm aware. I've consistently heaped praise on him for 3 years. He shouldn't have been playing in many of the games this year . Just struck me as really odd that he had so many votes early that weren't at all warranted imo. Seemed an anomaly to me ,that's all...

    I actually thought he was ordinary in the early games and terrible in the later ones. Just calling it as I saw it. Charity votes imo. No big deal , just wonder what the thinking is.

    I've been a huge wrap for Lyons since we got hold of him but he was ordinary mostly and unfortunately a liability as the year wore on when we kept playing him and he couldn't run or kick. Quite bemused how he got so many votes. You don't agree ?

    How have McCarthy and Lyons got so many votes ? No wonder they kept playing Lyons. They were invested in him.
