JAMES HIRD NO SHOW
Brownlow medalist James Hird has failed to show up to speak at the Lakeside Club Sale for the second time. Patrons paid $50 to attend the night after it was rescheduled. They have not been offered a refund or an explanation for his absence. Patrons had come from as far away as Warrnambool. Jobe Watson spoke but fans were left frustrated. Were you there? What do think is going on?
Hirds gonna Hird.

He just inexplicably failed to show but they happened have Watson there as a backup?

Doesn’t make much sense.

Comments on the post say there was this weird situation where organisers kept saying all night “he’s running late” before announcing at 11pm he wasn’t coming and “we can’t contact him”. And Watson was there instead.

TBH it sounds like they knew well in advance he wasn’t coming, got Watson instead, they decided not to tell people so they wouldnt be issuing refunds.

Hird may well have pulled out and that may have been a poor effort, but the situation seems a little strange.

How do you know that Watson AND Hird weren’t both supposed to appear on the night?
