A cynic might query the timing of this coming so soon after the latest Liam Ryan shenanigans.
Funny how The West, Perth Now,Channel 7 don't seem to no
tice anything sinister with the team they are major sponsors of.
We will see this story in the West with an Eagle player on the next page smiling at a photo op at a community camp
Don't buy or read their crappola....
One day there might be a media outlet in this town without an agenda who are fair and balanced_ wouldn't that be nice..(KARL)

So someone who has been at the club leaves since 2011 leaves. It sounds like Ms Horrocks went in to bat for a part-time employee who got some negative feedback and came off second best. Unlucky.

A "former insider" says "it's amazing how many good people have left". Rixx, Sutty, Johno, The Big Ape, Nads and SPurry must have been greatly admired. :D

Very slow news day.

The hypocrisy and double standards of the Perth media are nauseating. My favourite was when in about August they did a story about how Liam Ryan’s “incident” was such a turning point in his life as a person and footballer. This after they failed to report the initial incident properly and accepted the BS explanation from Nisbett, Stocks and Simpson that the incident itself was a non-issue.

I like to think it will improve when Nisbett and Stocks leave the club. Nisbett is overly sensitive to any criticism of the club and punishes anyone who steps out of line. Stocks is far too close to many of the Perth journalists which doesn’t help either.

Could you imagine if Bennell walked out/left/got sent home early from a training camp! The smear campaigns would be unbelievable. Happens at West Coast and they are forethinkers for player welfare and management. Love it!

Nisbett and Stocks must laugh at the BS they can get away with. Media lap it up every time.

And it’s not just because they win the flag this year because they’ve been pulling similar stunts for years and it’s always worked. Doubt also one of the reasons cousins was allowed to get away with his tricks for so long.

Also very much doubt Nyhuis and Giro are best 22 given they didn't play in Rd 23. These articles are always scratch the surface stuff. I really need to stop reading them - a semi interested fan learns nothing.

And I am sick of seeing various “experts” put Ed Langdon on a hbf. It makes it really hard to respect their opinions at all when they can’t get a few basics right.
Along with brilliant insights like this;

Ross Lyon’s team have maintained their mediocrity — something that simply must ameliorate if the coach and his team are serious about winning a premiership.

Plus one of them was de-listed and the other didn't get upgraded from the rookie list

Awful, just awful.
It was painful to read! The old line of Roscoe does not play the youth was even run when we put more games into our youth than any other team. Then the selection of the the best 22 just confirmed this idiot has never spent 5 minutes watching Freo.

so you're saying for Freo to get good, they have to be not bad?

Shite article, due to poor research.

The quote about Rossco and the your, he writes it up as a negative that Rossco played a lot of yoof in 2019 !!!. Damn me down, play the experienced ...... you’re neglecting the yoof, play the yoof .... you’re neglecting the experienced players.

Could this be Crumpets / Bloodnuts, “unclaimed” offspring ?.

He is a sick man who shouldn't be put in the paper at all, needs to be out of the spotlight and get some help.

Who cares who he played for anymore, this is a destroyed life

Couldn't care less about the West Coast stuff.

As a woman basher he should be outed for the utter sub human that he is. Every woman in society should be able to find out what kind of a horrible human he is.

Domestic abusers (male & females) should be on a data base like paedophiles should be.

It is a national crisis and the sooner we address it as a society the better.
