I actually have zero issue with thisRioli supporting cheats
Who's saying Rioli gets life? Most I've seen doubt he will get four years, and expect 18-24 months. That's in line with similar incidents we have had in the aflAs opposed to Rioli who should be banned from the game for life according to most
Seems a tad hypocritical isnt it?
That's the frustrating thing with his case, apparently the bong penalty will be less severe than the Gatorade one.Rioli smokes a bong, tampers with a sample and continues the Eagles drug culture... - Ban him for a bit, on conditional behaviour, max 4 years.
Fixed it for ya'
You have never made a mistake in life? I have to admit I've made a few doozys, and I'd be f’ed if everyone had your attitude.Congratulations on him for rejecting a life of failure for sure, but does it need this high of a pedestal?
Im more inclined to celebrate those who never failed to begin with
Even Tim Kelly said it.It shows how inept recruiters are by not recruiting Pickett and Stack.Everyone in WA was saying he was as good as Tim Kelly and he is.
I give you Andrew Krakour. Played for Richmond, committed a crime, did his time and then was picked up by Collingwood. How did he turn out in the end?Because I think the idea of "you get a second chance" seems a bit directionless at times. If Marlon gets a second chance then fine, but you gotta extend the good will beyond 1 bloke is what im saying
You're a sad little man aren't you. Self appointed judge, jury and executioner. Amazingly you also set the rules as to when a person is allowed back into society. Fortunately you are such an obvious knob that no one really needs to take any heed of what you think. Go Marlion Pickett, you are many times more an honourable man than this WillieVanillie. You have lived through such a traumatic upbringing yet fought your way back to where you now are and forever will be a Premiership Player with the mighty Richmond Tigers. The dead sh.t white privileged self servers will always exist but never actually know what it's like to have true persistence and class.Im a bit like Benji Marshall. Forgive and forget only goes so far. Theirs certain things that cannot be forgiven or forgotten. Marlion should be in that category unfortunately. It sucks for him but that is life. As much as "you did your time" is a thing, its not always applied.
He made it out due to timing. If he was drafted at 17 and did his crime, he wouldnt have gotten another chance. Because he did it out of the spotlight and not on a AFL list he gets another go.
Very much like Matthew Lodge in the NRL. You cant adjust your moral compass because of proximity to the incident. Its either wrong and lifetime ban or it isnt. Pick a side and stick to it guys
Spot on.People judging him like he committed the crimes recently. Just learnt he did those things in his late teens, yet people want to hang him high forever. He turned his life around and produced the most memorable debut in AFL history. Pretty sure he's on the right track.
