    Thanks peeps. See, it's with friends like you, I can avoid getting a big head like Paul Roos.

    In fact, I can so avoid getting ahead of myself that I think I can remain perfectly grounded, developing an inferiority complex and curling up in the corner, rocking myself to sleep...... :D (emoticon just for thy's benefit).

    I know this board loves a bit of schadenfreude and Andrew Demetriou isn't universally loved, so I'll just put this out there.

    http://www.afr.com/brand/rear-window/demetrious-bad-luck-continues-20170928-gyqojj

    I'm not one to kick a guy while he is down, but I figured the Acquire Learning angle is relevant to us.

    Sometimes it seems like corporate high flyers get all the luck, but I guess it's not that simple. One could say Andy D has brought his career into disrepute?

    EDIT: I have an AFR subscription, so wasn't sure about paywall. Basics of article are:
    • Directors of the now-collapsed Acquire Learning are being investigated for a possible breach of directors' duties.
    • Acquire Learning was cofounded by Demetriou's nephew Tim Demetriou
    • Andy D was never on the board. But he was in 2014 appointed chairman of Acquire's advisory board
    • He was also Chairman of Capitol Health, which has seen its share price slammed
    • He was an early investor in a 3D printing company that is struggling
    • Summary: The AFR took some enjoyment in listing AD's business failures

    Poor record, deliberate intention, students left financially concussed - should be deregistered.

    Just goes to show how much of a free ride the AFL is. Not accountable to anyone but a product which virtually sells itself no matter how much they try to stuff it up

    On one hand....if he hadn't donated his boots, the charity wouldn't have got any money. Props.
    On the other hand....did he basically just steal $2000 from a charity? WTF?!?

    He is a weird (soon-to-be) cat....

    He donated a pair of boots he was no doubt paid handsomely to wear.
    Has been most likely the highest paid player in the history of the game and still feels the need to halve the donation.
    Weird cat is generous.

    Sir Dick was pretty happy with himself. Could bowl a bit.
