Love AFL, not interested in any other sports really. Have attended a dozen or so grand finals in my life, none of which I have had to pay to get in. (Work that out yourself). Collingwood tragic and member.

My disgust with the press has just got worse Mr Right over the past 5 years or so…and no, it’s not just about Pies players…things like the ridiculous carry on over the Richmond winning circle “gropegate”…etc. The shock jocks are ruining football media coverage for me. Lot’s of good stuff in here though, The Roar (and yes I get the Roar needs advertising revenue too but they are not the ones digging through garbage looking for stuff)
Plus, the sanctimonious in here (aka Macca) need to be taken down a peg or two. Macca thinks as a parent of teenagers he can comment o parenting of 26 year old adults. Macca loves to put himself as omnipotent and faultless, unlike the rest of us.

Jordan De Goey’s punishment cannot be blamed on the media, nor can Collingwood be accused of being too soft

Plus Eddie caught him out for doing 360’s with his De Goey comments. I’m sorry but the man is just terrible at what he does

Yeah but you changed the parameters didn’t you Charlie? Lucky we have such good citizens as you . So I ask you this if on your own on a secluded beach do you go naked or wear bathers?

Cameron, congrats on the article yesterday. Nearly 600 comments and 11,000 reads already. I’m glad that’s 11,000 people to at least question the view many of them had from nothing more than a Herald Sun headline.

I’m older mate and back related hammy issues from footy in the past…don’t think my back would cope with that one, but thanks.

Liam, as a student of the media I would like your opinion on the long rant I wrote above. If I’m off the mark with your perception of the current football media, it’s inability to disentangle itself from the very thing that feeds it… cl1ckb@it advertising revenue for the biggest and most titillating headline, etc etc…happy to be debated or turned around if I can see your points of rebuke.

Yeah pretty sure they weren’t at work Charlie. They were in a social situation that had no complaints from anyone in that Bali nightclub.
How about as a nudist if you were having a skinny dip at an empty beach except for a friend who couldn’t care less about your nudity but shot video of you and posted it on the internet. Do we still arrest you based on the outrage from the video viewers even though no one at the beach was offended? Do the police still arrest you?

Oracle, I’ll be too exhausted after all this to watch the footy. How would the Pies players be able to concentrate on winning their 5th game in a row? Get on GWS…by lots.

That’s brilliant Nick. Made my day. If a woman wrote an article the men would still jump in and suggest a rewrite on “her” behalf, for her own protection of course. The lady with De Goey said basically “leave Jordy and I alone and mind your own business” … plenty of men aren’t in here alone.

My fav yoga position is downward dog but no doubt that will offend someone. Apologies Macca for using that offensive term

Did you say Buddy let his Sydney teammates down by “going missing” that finals series with mental health issues too Tez?

AFL News: De Goey out indefinitely on personal leave, AFL's million-dollar plan to land pop superstar for GF

Jon Ralph will never live that down…announcing his great scoop on Twitter “De Goey suspended for rest of year. Fined $25,000”. Do they have Downlow awards in the media?

AFL News: De Goey out indefinitely on personal leave, AFL's million-dollar plan to land pop superstar for GF

Excuse repeating my post but it sums up my feeling on footy media atm. Bring back Mike Sheahan and professional journalism.
People commenting sanctimoniously in here need to stop and consider things too.
The AFL media has become a laughing stock full of poorly trained “journalists”. The majority now use self serving outrage in their desperate attempt at generating cl1ckb@it revenue at any cost. The digital age has turned a number of them into footy paparazzi scrounging in garbage bins for something, anything titillating. Jack Ginnivan at 19 and having played the grand total of about 20 games had to push through a media scrum to get to his car. Why? He rated fictional characters in a silly social media game played by more women than men. The Herald Sun deemed that story worthy of their front page while war rages in Ukraine, while Sri Lanka has ground to a halt and govt employees are told to spend part of their working week growing their own veggies, while the pandemic in Melbourne alone apparently is hitting around 15-18,000 cases a day. Jon Ralph in his desperate attempt to beat Scoop McLure posts “De Goey Suspended for rest of season, fined$25,000” He then retracts his post and apologises however the very error he made generated more money than the truth so that’s where the media bar is set. The AFL media will post anything because clearly their editors tell them that they need to generate advertising revenue. Morals? Talk of morals take a look at the usual culprits in AFL media and tell me they have morals and are good members of society. Herald Sun in its entire staff. Fox Footy, Kane Cornes, Mark Robinson in whatever media he does and all the others…nothing more than bogan paparazzi masquerading as journalists in cheap ALDI suits.

You can’t keep up Davico, back to your league articles.

As Cam said yesterday this generation are used to videoing everything. It’s an age where content is king, where “influencers” self-fund their lifestyles, where anyone can be a documentary or story teller on U tube

When she is 26 Macca she can do whatever she wants. She is an adult. De Goey and the lady are in their mid 20’s. You use “your daughter” to others in here as an emotive trick to gain favour with readers. This tactic is completely transparent to others.

Hate to tell you Macca but I don’t think she cares about your opinion or reaction.

You’re portraying it like they didn’t know each other matth. That is scurrilous. They are a couple. How do you know what constitutes their normal consenting behavior as a couple? How presumptuous of you.

Macca, I was probably in the cave hunting woolly mammoths, (where you are now) 8-10 years ago. The women in my life have since taught me that to try and think on their behalf is insulting and demeaning to them as adults. Once again Macca we are going in circles. You accuse me of getting personal yet yesterday you tried using slandering of my parenting in an attempt to manipulate me to your Caveman line of thinking. You clearly don’t see that you have put yourself on such a high pedestal you are getting constant nose bleeds. This is very boring no doubt for others so time to move on Macca. You will never get me back to your outdated way of thinking.

Media bullying of Jordan De Goey has been a disgusting witch-hunt

Macca when you lose your arguments you resort to thinking on everyone else’s behalf. You can’t say to me “it exposes your claims” because your opinion is it exposed my claims. I suspect you are so used to believing you can think on others behalf you apply your same principles to thinking on the lady’s behalf in Bali. You also get so stuck on trying to manipulate people in here to your point you seem to forget what even began the discussion. I’ve seen you do it with Don, with many others in here. It’s boring tbh.

Then don’t go to the clubs G money.

Utter BS Macca. What you or I define as inappropriate at our ages is going to be completely different to other interpretation of consenting couple behaviour. I hate to tell you but you don’t define their morals, mine or anyone else’s. No one at the Bali club has lodged a complaint. You are not the moral police officer of anyone Macca

Media bullying of Jordan De Goey has been a disgusting witch-hunt

His statement was a reaction to bring hounded by the media Virgil. Ginnivan the other day had to push his way through a media scrum to get to his car because he spoke poorly of a fictional character in a popular social media game played by more women than men . The media in general have become gutter paparazzi. Poorly trained and hypocritical clowns in cheap Aldi suits
