Have people read Graham Cornes on page 37 of the Advertiser (Advertiser.com.au) for August 7, 2022? The outrage that most fans and supporters feel for “The Camp” are minimized and derogated in his homage to times long ago when players endured far worse offenses and humiliations. He describes specific events at the camp without attribution. Who told him that his rendition of facts was correct since it obviously contradicts the public accounts of IDENTIFIED players? Was Mr. Cornes there and a witness to the events? He states that SafeWork SA and the AFL Integrity Unit conducted their own inquiry and “were provided all facts of the players’ processes and interactions, including Eddie’s.” That assertion seems to directly contradict the statements of players, AFLPA and AFL. What part did the “old breed” of Footy players play in The Camp? The players and Crow supporters want to know who authorized The Camp and who is responsible for “The Coverup”? Don’t the players whose careers were damaged if not ended have a right to know? Don’t the Crow supporters?
'Really disappointed in myself': Bryce Gibbs reveals regret at defence of Crows camp that 'ended careers'
In the US, some states have authorized civil suits for the Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress. I do not know if that concept exists under Australian law. The release of the Crow’s doctor’s report (which the AFL apparently knows about) might be evidence in such a suit. Jenkins also makes reference to a CEO or football manager. Does anyone know who that was or the identity of the 10 players and 2 coaches who were part of Group 1? It sounds like they got the worst of it. I also remember that Rory Sloane tried to defend Tex Walker sometime later saying that no one knows what Tex had done for the club that had not been made public. Was that ever clarified? If so, did it include the fallout from the camp?
Josh Jenkins' childhood was 'a source of shame, pain and pride'. He says Crows camp leaders used that to abuse him
