Get old weapon back.
Whitfield needs to put some muscle on for starters So does Bobby Hill.
Why would anyone want him?
Was a bog average coach bolstered by Bombers guidance. He’s not taking anyone to a premiership lol
- 2 mill fine
- Players banned
- Jobes brownlow stripped*
- Draft picks removed
- Kicked out of finals even tho we qaulified
- Staff and coaches sacked
How much more punishment do you want mate? we did the crime and did the time,time to move on.
They're adults, not young boys.
They shoulder some of the responsibility, especially considering they deliberately omitted info to ASADA.
Carey got a redemption arc.Aussies love to stick the boot in when people are down, especially fallen stars.
It is one of the worst things about modern Australian culture tbh.
What it means is that there will likely be no redemption arc for Hird, even if he has earned it by hard work and commitment.
Sorry Jimbob, the tribe has spoken.
Here’s a few differences:Very little difference, potentially Hird's was worse.
AFL players, especially the young guys would have not only felt massive pressure to conform but they also would have been ignorant to much of what was going on. No explanation, no documentation and no choice.
At least a school kid makes a choice.
Here’s a few differences:
- heroin has an epic mortality rate
- heroin is a drug with incredible addictive qualities
- dealing it lands you in jail
- young men are extremely impressionable but aren’t schoolkids
- Hird wasn’t singularly -or even primarily - responsible for the program
Don’t mistake me for a minute - Hird should have been suspended from the game for a long time and what happened at Essendon was very wrong. However, let’s not weaken that argument by blowing it up to insane proportions.
Hird should get a job driving a taxi
giving drugs to young boys is about as low as you can go
How about using an untested drug on players and considering buying into the production company (metabolic), then using the results of the drug as a proof-of-concept to boost sales?
The players were either complicit or utter guinea pigs.
If he's a realistic chance, it's just baffling.
Think of the hard yards Voss and Ratten had to put in to get another go as a non-premiership winning recycled coach. And I'd argue both had records that easily stacked up against Hird's. And he's still yet to spend any time as an assistant coach (if I'm not mistaken).
