Nah, can't remember RU. I've lost touch with all that crew too so no longer have the connections to find out.
This Paul Daffey article from 2011 is terrific - answers it all:

I’d like to know more about Don Scott’s departure from special comments at Channel 7 during the late 1990s (I think he called his last game in 1997?) …

On the podcast he is part of (with Sam Newman), they have tried to bait him numerous times in the past to spill the story on air and when a certain name (Bruce McAvaney) is mentioned, Don has been very dismissive. There is definitely bad blood there and it sounds like some pretty interesting events went down at the time…
Me, too. They've said a few times that he was busted bagging Bruce off air, because his mic was still live somewhere.

lol, it's probably just going to be that bullshit damage control rumour that surfaced right after he was traded, where the hero of the story Big Ed looked after Treloars ex that he was cheating on by giving her a job, and that the reason his salary was backloaded was because Treloar requested it so he didn't have to pay as much when they separated or some dumb sh*t.

It was some absolute drivel then and it's done the rounds a handful of times since. I'm incredulous anyone ever gave it a second glance let alone thought it had even a speck of truth in it.

I have a rumour I wish to post but I heard it from someone I don't particularly trust. Do I post it here or should I start another thread?
Post it here and if it’s rubbish it will be forgotten about in a page or two.

But if it’s good and grows legs, you can always make a specific thread about it. Consider this your rumour workshop. We critique out of love.

Well, it’s both a rumour and not a rumour at the same time at this point.
Much like Schrödinger’s cat and Glascott’s monkey.

Who was the Collingwood player in the video hitting umpires? I'd like to Google him and find out more about him on and off-field. My gut feeling is that he'd have got in some big trouble in life.
