He has never appeared remorseful over the whole affair. Will never forget the arrogance he showed in the aftermath esp when the crows played the roos for the first time. Those were your mates you screwed over ffs. And north are a shell of what they once were.

Bloke is allowed to earn a living. And that is not a reflection on his employer. He is employed to do a job if his employer who is paying him is happy with his work all good. We all know the Carey family story and we all have one of our own. But we do like to Judge.
Why are people talking about Carey?

The question is how any media organisation could sink low enough to associate themselves with him. Anyone with a history of abusing partners and police officers is unfit for public broadcasting.

Thanks for your opinion. Fact is a media organisation employed him. I am sure there are many out there who abuse partners ..men and women and give a spray to men/women in blue. And hold down jobs more important than Public Broadcasting. Eg. Work for disposal removal on The Melton Shire. Clean toilets at Sunshine Shopping centre etc.

Heh it's a boys club no doubt...gravy train for the chosen few. Women making plenty of inroads tho. Look at the cricket plenty of girls there some ok some well the least said the better. Not sure what 15 years and still on TV means.

If you bother to read his autobiography he explains the so called “glassing” incident in detail.

They were both completely off their nut on coke and booze as he went to toss a bit of wine from a glass at her.

She lent into it and the glass cracked cutting her with a minor wound.

All the other stuff is not a good look of course but he’s not exactly a danger to society.

Personally, I think he’s dumb as dog doo and seldom offer any comments of interest in anything he says.

He looks good on camera and is one of greatest players of all time and is professional in his role.

Wayne likes to cut a long shory stort.

That's a spoonerism, Duck-Head.
I wonder what it's like for female panellists to have to chortle merrily and call him Duck. Still blows my mind that he has a gig on TV in 2021. Fair play to him if he doesn't act like a violent nutcase anymore, but he never should have been given those hugely high profile media jobs in the first place. Thank God Ablett was too dumb and ugly to apply because they'd probably have given him a job as well.

tbf he is hardly going to detail how he wanted to smash a glass in her face for a while either, is he?
He goes into a fair bit of detail regarding that incident.

Him and his girlfriend were both totally off their tree on coke and drink sitting at a restaurant table in the U.S.

An argument started and he flicked his wine glass towards her and the edge nicked her face and broke.

Small cut. Not a good situation.

He goes up to his hotel room..restaurant manager calls the cops.

The biggest revelation in his book is that in his first residence after coming to Melbourne, he shared his bedroom with a German Shepherd. (He also freely admits to that bedroom having a revolving door when it came to women, though whether Muttley was a spectator or not wasn't recorded :oops: )

Because he's the best player of all time but he is also the worst media performer of all time and it's obvious his on air colleagues don't like him.

He thinks he's Mr. Cool but in reality he totally lacks self awareness and is a complete tool.
