Gary Jnr was terrible for the Suns leadership wise. Also quite the religious fanatic.
While we’re doing secret squirrel, his father is actually Gary Ablett senior. He was quite a good football player but I have heard he may have had some off field issues (wink wink).

Ablett wanted to reverse his move to the Suns a week after it was officially done. (it could be that he got news of Bombers departure from the Cats)

Either way, Ablett's move to the Suns could be the worst career decision in AFL history. He wasted some of his prime years racking up stats. He rarely got tagged, as there was no need for oppo coaches to bother. He would get one-two-three-handball exchanges off his teammates who gave the ball to him in every possible circumstance.

Pickering is a shit footy manager imo, but he is not alone.

You would think he is incredibly aware of the public perception that he is incredibly arrogant that has been going around WA for the best part of the last 5+ years?
With the greatest sincerity I’m sure he was really nice to your mate but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t /isnt extremely arrogant.

The amount of times I’ve heard it from different people who don’t have any skin in the game is overwhelming, the quantity is really only akin to Ben cousins drug stories I’ve heard and buddy franklin drug stories.

Ben cousins going to a party and not doing drugs doesn’t mean he’s not a drug addict.
Nah just a town and media who are zealous WCE zombies. This coming from someone who lives in Perth and supports neither WCE or Freo. I thought it was extremely poor how WCE turned a blind eye to the out of control ice, coke etc addictions or who knows what sychronised at the time of their talent laden glory era of 2005-6. Then when Kerr and Cousins end up victims the media and WC supporters defend, deny, then disown them just like the club did.. used tampons.
All about brand and image, now it's the old family values. Ha the hypocrisy, family values when it is convenient. The incredible denial hit home a few months ago when Cousins was busted for failing a drug test for having too much water in his urine without a trace of drugs. WC or its supporters didn't give a whimper of protest. I actually feel sorry for the bloke. To think I picked him up when I was driving cabs a few days after he got busted for his bust with possession and sacking and suspension from the game in 2007 and my disdain for such an arrogant fool to let so many kids down with his pathetic role model behaviour.
Fyfe is probably arrogant, I don't know never met the bloke. He probably is in some ways, any highly successful elite person is on some level. Me smells jealous Coasters...

I Was thinking capper. Always looks zooted whenever I see him pop up these days.
$4k as a ‘gun for hire’ on bucks shows but then can’t keep him away from the rippers!

Dunno if this counts because i was there but me and my mate were out on the gas proper and ran into Waz. Had a big laugh with him and once sussed that we were all on the same thing that night he says 'Shall we go have a couple of ahh... Cappers?'. So we retired to the nearest toilet, he racks up and then goes first. As he hoovers it up he goes 'CAAAPPPPPPPPPPPEEEEEERRRR!!!'. Me and my mate absolutely piss ourselves. Was so hilariously obvious what was going on inside that cubicle. Anyways we had a fu**in good time until he became too annoying. So about 20 minutes

If this was true it would be all over FB with vids, pics, etc. Like the Mitch Robinson fight at Big Day Out.
Not necesarily, they were more than likely in some exclusive marquee away from most of the muggle peasants that would pull their phone out as soon as they see an AFL player. could have been over within 5 seconds before anyone who saw it could record it.

Have a look at any of the photos from any of the marquees, and everyone has their phone in their hand. It would've been captured in the background whilst some 23yo hardbody was taking a selfie of her and her fellow 'influencers' on the Dancefloor, and it would've been massive news.

Hawkins spilt a frothy on Selwood's wife's cleavage in the middle of a selfie with Megan Gale, Jane Bunn and two of the Black Eyed Peas.
