    I'll second that motion.
    Why is it sooo obvious to most of us.
    Yet dumb rule after another comes our way.

    IF true, Freo have definitely done the right thing to cut him... but the AFLPA should counsel him.

    Yarran is no kid either. Sort of thing you would expect a 19yo who got delisted to post.

    I'm generally a traditionalist when it comes to rules, but I'm behind any rule which stops a midfielder giving away a free kick for taking the front position and denying another midfielder their run at the ruck contest when there's 2 7 foot giants jostling for position awaiting the umpire to throw the ball up.

    He sounds like a winner

    I wonder if Fyfe pointed out what a douche he was? Shits me that flogs like this at least get a taste of AFL football whereas kids that live and breathe it and are conplete professionals like Zane Kirkwood or even Jonty Scharenberg don't.

    To be fair, he could be a recycling nut and just lost it at the guy for smashing the bottle instead of putting it in for 10 cents

    Why? He was only in the system for a fleeting moment and all of his woes are self inflicted....

    The AFLPA have a welfare role, regardless of the years a player is in the system.

    It's actually more important for those who have a shorter playing career.

    Ex-Carlton coach makes off the cuff remark about the Crows "stitching up" one of their players = full AFL investigation.

    Recently retired Fremantle players makes accusation about massive drug problem at the club. Expect this to be swept aside.

    I agree in principle but this peanut was already a loose unit before he became an AFL player.

    Terrible recruiting by Freo though. Their recruiting department should be sacked.

    Agree Freo's recruiting is questionable, but that doesn't absolve AFLPA's welfare role.

    Yarran was just cut from an AFL list.

    Actually, given current pay negotiations, the AFL is probably quietly happy that the Pav is being linked as being a massive coke fiend.

    Quit before being cut - semantics & completely irrelevant to my point the AFLPA have a welfare role to players exiting the game.

    I still think Jonty gets a go, he just needs another 12 months to completely prove himself. Rookie selection next year if he has a good year. Picked up in the national draft if he tears it up and wins the Magarey medal.
