Kick a scintillating goal, salute the crowd with a roar of exultation, slow to a trot soaking up the adulation, puff the chest out, strut, elbow bent at the side, forefinger raised, head jiggling ever so slightly as if on a coiled spring with that deity look of ‘I know I’m good’.

On a day when the AFL’s two newest clubs were thrashed by a total of over 200 points, there was a bit of joy to be had from Wayne ‘The Duck’ Carey’s appearance on Triple M’s The Sunday Rub.

The Australian sporting public is, I submit, a generally forgiving bunch. We forgave Shane Warne. We forgave Wayne Carey. We even seem to have forgiven Margaret Court, inasmuch as we have not yet placed her in an institution.
