Just typed in "Joffa Corfe Carlton Jumper" and the first result is him in a Western Bulldogs Jumper.

Type in "joffa corfe footy jumper" and the first result is a Collingwood Jumper with the 2nd being a Western Bulldogs jumper

Neither search contained him in a Carlton jumper.

News Corpse would have gone out of their way to pick that images.

Yes, if that was the case Sydney would absolutely do an investigation. So would any club that is not a shambles off field.

🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

What would a football club investigate? They aren't in the slightest way any form of law enforcement when it comes to serious criminal investigations.

Seeing you seem to think that local football clubs are full of qualified detective's, I wonder if the AFP will ask for help from the Geelong membership department next time they are doing a large heroin bust?

Whilst it's enjoyable to pile on the Pies when they do something wrong, this is not their doing.

Is it ideal that the lead of their cheer squad is being investigated for such things? No. Of course not, but it's got absolutely nothing to do with Collingwood.

Collingwood- making Rugby League clubs look like solid citizens. What a bin fire that club has become. I guess all the moddycoddling and preferential treatment they receive creates a spoilt, entitled, morally corrupt organisation. Like the only child who's never told no. McGuire has much to answer for. Unfortunately nobody in Malbun Town has the balls to stand up to him.

Um this is a bit of a surprising response mate. Any well run organisation would conduct an investigation if a person associated with them was accused of serious crimes to make sure that there are no surprises or issues they don't know about which could damage the organisation. It is basic management.

Does not mean Collingwood are in any way at fault here for the actions of one person, it is just what well run organisations do as a matter of course.

Well that depends on why he was not a member and/or in cheer squad anymore.

lmao you are so unstable.

what kind of 5 year old argument is that? Provide one, just one piece of evidence that Joffa had bad character while he was in our cheer squad, stop dodging the question like a coward and answer.

then you can answer how we’re pedo apologists. This should be good.
lol, I'll be waiting too.

I doubt very much that Collingwood had any idea about this when handing him an award last year. All clubs love their supporters, and anyone as passionate, present and distinctive as Joffa is always going to grab some attention. The big sparkly jacket is as recognisable as 'Cat man' for example.
One thing is for sure though, the Pies have well documented issues with racism, assault, illegal gambling and drugs. I cant think of any which the club have handled well, so its going to be hard for them to stand up and take the moral high ground.

Odd that an individual facing charges makes the front page while what looks increasingly like a pedophile ring operating in the 1970s is ignored.
Is a pedophile ring an organised group of people more than 2? Anyway read the article very sad.

Let's just consider how hard they would have had to search just to find that picture...

I googled "joffa carlton top" it came up with 50-60 results and managed to find this pic, but it was only there due to being linked to the article.
Just do a google image search on "joffa" by itself and I couldn't even find it. I stopped when I scrolled to the bottom and it said 'show more results'.
Somebody has gone well out of their way to find that pic to use.
a collingwood picture editor at faux news corp?

You've got to be kidding yourself if you think Collingwood wont be investigating this themselves, they'll be wanting to get ahead of anything.

Club award in Feb 2020 to not a member by March 2021 (Indian remarks) makes me think Collingwood already did some investigating

Thats not how news organisations search for art - especially when it is someone who has been covered by the media often.

That said, it's still unusual.

I know it's not but it's just an example of how obscure the image used was. Out of the assumed 100's (probably 1000's) of photos of Joffa they'd have on file nearly all of which would be in Collingwood gear they somehow chose one from over a decade ago with him in a Carlton jumper.

Even when you just search for "Jeff Corfe" or "Joffa Corfe" images in Collingwood Gear (and the WB jumper) are far more prevalent, the Carlton jumper does appear but only because the News Corpse used it yesterday (attributed to the Daily Terror).

Yeah Collingwood now have a duty to investigate any potential happenings in the cheer squad whilst Joffa was member. I don't envy the poor Collingwood employees than now have to talk to 20+ years of Collingwood Cheer Squad members.

Eddie talks to them to get game plan ideas 😂

Nah he definitely had a closer association to the club than that. Only last year the club gave him a "special services award".


They also tried to cash in off of the bloke with some tacky merch.


This merch was based off a jacket which the club president gave him.


Mentioned in countless articles on the club website.



I'm not saying the club knew or hold responsibility, but you can't just magically distance him from the club now that this has come out. He has a long and close history with the Collingwood Football Club that goes well beyond just being an ordinary supporter.
He is a product of the Collingwood FC that promoted and idolised anyone with an ego or self inflated opinion of themselves. The average supporter couldn’t care less or had no involvement with this guy outside of what was promoted from within the club and media. For a club that doesn’t have a No. 1 ticket holder it certainly has done a fair job of pumping up wannabe celebrities and show business supporters over the years. You’d swear we were run by a TV company. Thank Christ we are entering a new era where we can follow football without all this ego driven BS that has come out of the club over the years. Hope the alleged victim is getting all the support he deserves at this time.

True, he supports Collingwood.
This is where you loose all respect. If allegations are true throw the book at him but lump in "true, he supports Collingwood" suggests you are implying that this is a common thing with Collingwood supporters. Be akin to the latest allegations of a pedophile ring operating within St Kilda club and saying true, they support St Kilda.
