I'm suspicious of the timing with this coming straight after Cotchin denies any rift with the coach, but I also trust the source...there WAS a rift between coach and playing group, things came to a head behind closed doors, no longer an issue as worked things out weeks ago.

What I'm hearing: Hardwick comes back from the break with thick beard and bit rounder. Team are in the gym, he's worried about seeing them as a group for first time since it was all made public, but unnamed assistant-coach (Kingsley??) tells him everything will be fine.

Hardwick and at least one assistant-coach enter gym, there's obvious tension between them and players. Things get heated and, depending on which version you listen to, it escalates to exchange of words as a minimum, possibly some push-and-shove, while another version says exchange of blows. Cotchin comes in half-way through and tries to get involved, Hardwick and assistant make it clear they'll finish handling the playing group first then deal with Cotchin separately.

This is where it gets weird, ends up being resolved when they come to agreement over a red dune-buggy with a yellow top. I dunno, I trust this source and he says there is CCTV but footage hasn't leaked outside of the club yet, still thinking maybe I misheard the dune-buggy bit?








EDIT: Footage has leaked. Confirmed!

Sorry for selling you those pingers, they had some LSD in them. ... but you got the wrong footage, you got the CTTV footage, here is the CCTV footage. .. it was Rance and Hardwick, not Kingsley

yep and yep. The release of that video is what ended Bingle and Michael Clarke
Caught in the Shower and then flushed the Ring .

Clarke regrets the placement of the Ultra Fresh 13th Man he put in the Gully when Cover was always the likely spot Bingle would slash away at .

I have recently moved to Port Fairy but am yet to encounter the Brayshaw. Have seen Bruce McAveney in the past and Jono Brown, he is related to the Mugavins of Killarney , as is Liam Picken.

Yep, the Mugavin/Picken connection began when Billy married Julie Mugavin whose brother played for Fitzroy back in the day.
