If any of you guys are feeling a bit down about our club just pop on over to the Essendon Bombers forum for a couple of minutes and you'll feel much better haha
The funny thing is, he is suspended for 2 games already for head butting. If he gets done for 2 games does he just serve them during his suspension or do they get added on so he is out for 4 weeks?Well a Dog in trouble, Hanging out with Libba maybe
What suspension did Mumford get? 2 games?
He's now admitted to using illicit substances at the end of last year.
STATEMENT FROM BAILEY SMITH
I have recently been made aware of the presence of social media content that shows me with an illicit substance.
In confronting this, the temptation is to speak in vague generalities and avoid the issue. However, I am determined to learn the lessons of my past and be a better person in the future.
After much reflection, I am now in a position to confess to indulging in behaviours in late 2021 of which I am deeply ashamed. I do not have an excuse for those behaviours, however the state of my mental health over that period post Grand Final dramatically deteriorated, and I spiralled out of control leading to poor decision making and actions at the time. All of this resulting in the leave I took from football at the commencement of pre-season training late last year.

Not AFL at all, but ... this story says that some Manly players are contemplating not playing in their "pride jersey" because they weren't consulted and presumably it's against their beliefs (the details are scarce). I've just brought it up in relation to Haneen Zreika's stance last year ... these are male, and presumably Christians (the Islander community in both league & union tend to have strong Christian beliefs).
Manly is facing a player revolt which could turn ugly over a jersey promoting the inclusion of LGBTQ community in rugby league. The Sea Eagles announced players will wear the rainbow-adorned jersey during their round 20 NRL game against the Roosters at Brookvale Oval.
But Nine's Danny Weidler revealed "up to seven players don't want to wear a pride jersey this week and are considering not playing".
"It's a very delicate story that is unfolding," Weidler told 9News. "There's set to be an emergency meeting soon between the players and management. I was hearing this afternoon up to seven players objected to the pride jersey, and late today four to five players were seriously considering not playing in the game. The news coming out of Manly is they are likely to allow the players not to play this game to honour their beliefs, so that could be quite a significant development. The reason is the club did not consult their players before the jersey was initiated."
Open to discussion ... but ... keep comments reasonable.
