It’s never okay to assault anyone regardless of gender. People being assaulted have every right to fight back and punch back, as long as it’s proportionate.

Another Albert Proud or Andrew Lovett in training it seems.

He will be referred to as a former Sydney Swans player, until he starts playing for West Coast

Not a chance - unfortunately we won't touch anyone who has so much as a dolphin tattoo on their ankle thanks to our team shenanigans 15 years ago.
Freo on the other hand ...

May be a controversial idea but I think people found guilty of domestic violence charges should be put on a national database that anyone can look up. It is not fair to people getting into a new relationship and them not knowing their new partner has been guilty of this in the past. People deserve to know.

It wouldn't mean anything because then they would come out with "I was going through a dark time..." or "I was young and stupid...but now I've changed" etc. Also, in SOME instances there is a scary dynamic at play. I remember when I was doing a counselling course many years ago and there was reference to an experiment that was done where a group of people were all put together in a controlled social setting for an evening and nobody had met anybody else previously. One of the results of the experiment was that, by the end of the evening, the guy who had a history of abusing women and the woman who had a history of being abused had found each other and were basically together.
This is not to say that this dynamic is at play in every situation (because it isn't - sometimes guys are just pieces of sh*t) but it is weird how it can occur.

I dunno, I had some mates who were pretty obviously campaigners but they had status and whatever else and women would still flock to them even though they were pretty obviously campaigners, and yeah I had a really hard time feeling sorry for them when the inevitable emotional breakdown occurred.

My mates weren't physically violent or anything btw, just arseholes who cheated and lied etc.

I think people should not go out with campaigners tbh.

I had a couple of friends who were terrible people to date - also not violent, just serial cheaters - who were literally never single. They'd spend far more time with multiple girlfriends than just one.

And I know people who go from crap relationship to crap relationship and always are the victim and refuse to look at themselves and the choices they make.

Some people are eternal victims and some people are eternal arseholes. And they seem to find eachother easily.

When you start talking about gender and race a lot of people lose their minds and don’t know what common sense is anymore.
Would have played a major part in him getting a second chance and will play a major part in him getting a 3rd. No doubt about that

For serious instances, yes.

For minor things then absolutely not, no company will ever hire anyone on that list.
