Immediately after the game a call was made to 3AW claiming to be from the evicted fan himself.


“That was me and all I said was: ‘You can’t (handball) one-handed, you bald-headed flog’,’’ the caller said.


“He’s just pretty much stamped his hand on the side of the wall there, pointed at the security guard and sort of chucked a hissy fit.


“There were security guards standing pretty close to me and they heard everything as well and as I was being escorted to the back of the ground they said, (there) is nothing we can do, this is management policy.

“I actually chose my words and made sure I didn’t swear because there’s kids around so it’s pretty embarrassing from the AFL.


“They’ve made me wait half an hour for an AFL integrity officer to come and take a photo of myself and my membership then I got escorted from the ground by the police and security. I was pretty annoyed.”

Hinkley has the Victorian media hoodwinked:

Walsh, Pyke and Ken Hinkley represented variations on the Fagan option. Walsh had ludicrous levels of experience, was past 50, but had never been the main man in the AFL, while Pyke had a diverse work history, having managed a mining company and served on the West Coast board. Hinkley had coached in the system for eons.

Leith Forrest just mentioned BigFooty on the sports show. They were talking about Gibbs and how Adelaide selectors don't read BigFooty before selection night.

He went on to ask Tim Ginever if he ever googles Bigfooty for his name. Tim said no never and Forrest said he has and it made him feel worse.

Sorry Leith. You're harmless enough ;)

Can you imagine? Yeah, just wait here while we wait for someone to take your details and then kick you out.
I'd be out of there in a flash. No way can they told you there against your will.

Surely it would be a Scottish soccer team
Yeah I guess, but there's no forests in the actual Leith though! I assumed it might be on the English border of south Wales, named by the Marquess of Bute when he was turning Cardiff into an actual place.

Maybe thats why it hurt! Discovering 600+ posts of "what even is Leith Forrest? An english soccer team?" could be a real blow for a media type.
Haha! lol

Dylan8 the graphic design board should have a competition to design a kit for Leith Forrest FC

I'd definitely contribute.

A bit of trivia, but it's the right thread for it ;), my distant relatives on my mother's side of the family came to this country from Ireland in the 1840's on a ship named the `Marquess of Bute.'
