Disappointing . However that’s business. The code of conduct is in place to protect a harmonious working environment. Days of the boys club certainly and deservedly coming to an end. No idea what he did or even rumoured to have done but language like that does not bode well in an official press release.
Shame. I really have a lot of time for him. When i was at a training session earlier in the yr with my girlfriends brother who was recovering from a broken neck, buckets went out of his way and come over and spoke to us at length. But the club needs to take a hard line, so they should be commended for that. It’s unacceptable enough for players to be doing these things, let alone officials.
I always included him with Hodgo & Skando whenever I posted about class acts on & off the field.
Just goes to show even class acts can turn into those guys at the other end of the spectrum when on the grog (as I assume this was the case)
Let this be a reminder with work christmas parties not too far away
