In posts on page 111 Walker has comparisons to a convicted rapist and a drug addict.
Surely one day, upon reflection, the severity of a racial one liner as overheard by a third party, will be put into context in relation to Jailable offences at the high end of the criminal scale.
I have read this type of comment a coupe of times, but it’s not accurate in referring to a job in the Australian Public Service.
In the APS the Policy falls under SafeWorkAustralia and WHS Act.
What Walker did would be considered harassment. This is by definition that it was a singular event...
The hypocrisy of the AFL and their arguments used to try and suspend Dmac are nothing short of temporary psychosis.
apply Gleeson arguments to the following vidand see if they fit:
“considered he could have injured a player entering that contest”
“Whether it was reasonable to run 20m at high...
Newsflash: an attempt to declare contact during a contact sport “unreasonable”was a groundbreaking development by the world leading sports association the AFL, designed to reduce injury.
Mike Tyson had lauded the move as “Revolutionary” as he looked to come out of retirement and shadow box...
Something for the Saints supporters coming to this board to gloat, and to raise a brief smile for Crows supporters
the AFL are very good at denying the Crows, but they cant take this away: https://www.afl.com.au/ondemand/highlights/519969/classic-grand-finals?episode=9
Victorian “expert“ arguments to devalue Adelaide players that are mistruths
player not worth $$$ or a high draft pick because:
not club top 10 B&F
Geelong don’t want to trade players like Pafitt, Saints don’t want to trade their 1st pick, GWS want players and we want a top 12 pick.
4 way trade, Saints give up billing’s, Cats give up Clark and pick 11, and perhaps a third rounder (they are getting Cameron)
Crows get pick 11, Saints get...
The Crows midfield has been one of the worst in the league since the GF, basically since (or because) of the 666 rule change.
i cant be bothered looking at all the stats but then there have been numerous occasions since then where they have just been dominated in the centre For whole games...
AFL ignores rods, which is my point. Conduct unbecoming has been applied to such things as rude gestures, sponsorship conflicts, bagging umpires and the Essendon doping scandal. The application of this penalty is completely arbitrary. As you may recall this is the same rule they used on Bailey...
The Crows boys were different to the players mentioned above because those players flaunted their real or “fake” substances on social media platforms, rather than being caught or detected undertaking private activity by a governing body.
Burden of proof for players caught in testing is more conclusive, I haven’t seen any report suggesting the players had used the substance in question, just that they had possession, with no charges laid.
Noting the wiki on afl drug policy is out of date, “Upon a second strike, a player will be...
correct - once no charges were laid, under the AFL drug policy it should have been a confidential matter. Regardless of community opinions on penalties the policy is clear regarding “no more to see” - no penalties.
in Melbourne Eddie or Peggy would have received a direct call and no one would...
Considering DeGoey was arrested and charged with indecent assault in July, and neither the club (pies) nor the AFL undertook any suspension, the charge of conduct unbecoming is AFL hypocrisy of the highest degree.
Of course the AFL know it couldn‘t suspend the Crows under the drugs policy. In...
I agree, the appropriate gamestyle definitely needs to match the list, or the list needs to be developed to suit the style. Some teams recruit based on a certain style while others adopt a style playing to their strengths. Will be interesting to see which way the Crows go from here.
It’s kind of like the ‘chicken and the egg’ argument. Were the forwards looking average due to our poor clearances or ineffective transitioning from defense? Or our forward entries appear disorganised because the forwards couldn’t beat their opponents? I’d say likely both.
Already we’re looking...
The percentages demonstrate the main avenues of attack. Neither is good or bad in isolation. However, the dominance of the two avenues across all scoring add weight statistically to their importance and the importance of winning the supporting attributes to provide this scoreboard advantage...
Richmond generates 65.6 per cent of its scores from turnovers (No.1 in the AFL), whereas GWS scores just 51 per cent from this source (18th).
= teams generate 51% to 65% of score from turnovers
The Giants make up for that by producing 45 per cent of their points from clearances (No.1) compared...
