fu** ups. There has been aplenty in these past few years.
This thread pertains to individual fu** ups in relation to off-field behaviors, and how the club should be handling such...fu** ups.
In light of a recent player alleged indiscretion, the club have sent out a public notice:

"Adelaide is aware of an off-field matter involving young forward Tyson Stengle who has been stood down from all club duties effective immediately as the Club ascertains all relevant details on the situation."
"The Club is working closely with the AFL and AFL Players Association, as well as Stengle’s management in relation to this matter.
While the Club acknowledges there will be significant media and public interest, it is not in a position to make further comment at this stage. More information will be provided as soon as possible."

So effectively, it translates to something like "Stengle is suspected of a wrong-doing off-field, we don't want to make other comments other than we're investigating this further".

And supposedly, it relates to a picture as below:

The question I would like to pose is this:
Should the club have given an early public notice at all? Or should it wait a bit down the track when further clues are given and a penalty is about to be dished off?
What if Stengle is found not guilty of such accusations, for whatever it is supposed to be the indiscretion?

Do we gain more from this early public notice, or less?

If they were sent the pictures by channel 7, I don't think covering it up was an option.

This picture probably provides a little insight

Has it been confirmed that the pics are definitely new, and not Stengle when he was an experimental teenager?

Both The Advertiser and Channel 7 have said the photos were taken after he and Crouch were caught with a bag of coke

So that pic is basically relating to Stengle's 2nd indscretion, and nothing to do with the recent alleged one? Do we know exactly what is the actual current allegation?

That picture is the current allegation .. I doubt either the club or channel 7 were just sent the picture. I'd imagine there was a sentence or 2 accompanying the photo providing additional incriminating information

The previous 1 he was arrested with Crouch in the city after buying a bag of coke

Tar and feather them in tge middle of Vic square.

Then invite member "Heroes" to hurl stale apricot slice at them.


Kill two birds with one stone. Punish the player, and provide an inner sanctum experience for the members who held memberships during COVID.
