JOHN BURKE, got 10 years and 16 matches but on appeal he ended up with 6 years.
So I Googled him. Seems to have played for a few clubs and has had a drain cleaning business for a long time.

LOL: His recommendation is quoted by a website, where he says "go with somebody you can trust." As opposed to someone who might fly off the handle?

Played against a kid in cricket. Talented lad. Got run out by a foot on his way to a tonne (and yes he was going to make one). Kicked over the stumps, threw one at one of our slip fielders, then chased the square leg ump trying to hit him with the bat. Only ended when his dad ran on the field and dragged him off by the ear.
Dunno what happened to him but I never saw him in our league again, and this fella was good enough to play district cricket

He became the QC obviously. Had to give up cricket though. He tries to give back when he can, loves to spend the occasional saturday morning down the local ground adjudicating BOG and donates the happy meal voucher.

That's a long time ago in a different age of footy. The guy deserves the right to not have his entire life judged by one moment as a 20 year old where noone was murdered, raped or vaccinated.

Or would you rather we organise a witch hunt, anonymously?

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.
Blokes a model citizen. Spent the last 35 years involved in local footy at some level, both seniors and juniors, never causing a moments trouble. Obviously had one bad day with severe white line fever, but you’ve come to a very incorrect conclusion on this one.

He worked briefly at RSN radio post VFL career in a sales role selling ad space didn't last long. Not sure what happened to him after that. Serious loose cannon though

Turned out he had a decent cricket career.
Still some issues admittedly.
