Would you believe them if they were white? I bet you wouldn't be defending Clarko if he took the bombers job.

What was the name of that other thread..

Bigfooty is a haven for racist trolls

thread has more "draftees" than a chopper over Saigon in the 70s
I believe all people are innocent until proven guilty.

Might be a foreign concept to the virtue signallers of today.

From the truth.

How coach I've got relationship issues. Don't know what to do. Partner is pregnant and I don't think I can handle having a kid. I'm 18 years old and I don't know how to break it off with my partner.

Listen son, life can be hard and having a kid if you're not ready is even harder. Have you and your partner thought about an abortion.

10 YEARS LATER.

"HE WANTED ME TO KILL MY BABY".

Doesn't take an Einstein to work out how the story has morphed.

It hasn't morphed; it's an entirely different story to what you're proposing lol

You seriously saying you believe people are innocent until guilty while also saying that you believe that the accusers have already changed their story based on conversations you've imagined.

This has to be one if the most unhinged, hypocritical takes I've seen 🤣

Damn this thread morphed in to Sky after dark. Moderating it must be hard work.

Yeah early on I was impressed with the content of the thread with the majority of posters acknowledging the need to stamp out racism and having an awareness of this context.


I was naïve to think it would continue that way, now full of those offended when racism is called out. Always find it perplexing when the first reaction of a lot of peoples first reaction is to say you can not call out racism and have concern for those accused of it and not have awareness of the impact of racism.

Kennett, speaking at the club's best and fairest awards night, said the club is not in crisis and has described the issue as a "bump along the highway".

He probably feels the same about the Stolen Generation. What an absolute Turd of a human being.

The drum beaters and attention seekers always continue long after most others have contributed. Proudly shouting into the ether about how little they care about any of this.

Yep who cares about Adam Goodes, Eddie Betts. Same group say the same about Grace Tame - who cares but spend ages getting defensive and offended when she says anything.

Personally I am 100% against this. Hawthorn have actually done the right thing by doing the review in the first place. I think that positive outweighs past negatives. We want to foster an "openness" policy where past actions/behaviours can be addressed and then things put into place so they dont happen again.
Having the Hawks punished as a club could potentially stop other clubs from "taking the risk" of doing their own reviews.
That is a bit like arguing that confession and a guilty plea should result in no sentence, though.

I completely get what you're saying, but in this case, the openness should be taken into consideration rather than nullifying any and all consequences.

I am not saying individuals should not have consequences, just that I dont agree with sanctions against the club.
