Stay Kind Jerseys



  • Anyone know if these one off jerseys will be for sale with money raised going to the right charity? I dont mean the player worn auction, i mean just general sale?



  • Stay Kind to Mitch Moses , run at him all game long!!!

    i doubt there’d be a mass production of these jerseys , i’d say
    they would be auctioned off after the game as worn jerseys
    and the proceeds to go to the right charity.

  • Watched the story behind these Stay Kind jerseys on 60 Minutes last night, what a heart-wrenching story.
    Utmost respect for the parents of those 2 young men that passed away, such a tragedy. All because of the mindless stupidity of one coward idiot.
    Hope the day is a success and helps in spreading the message that the Kelly family are hoping gets across throughout the community.

    Heard that yes, the jerseys are all being signed, then auctioned off, with the money going to charity. I presume the money goes to the charity that they are raising awareness of.

    And good on Bryden’s Lawyers for giving up their sponsorship slot for the game. Very nice of them. Eels have nothing to give up, as their “sponsorship slot” was Parra 1947 and they are keeping that on anyway (bludgers).

    I’m in two minds.
    What happened to the Kelly family is horrible., However the fact that the father rakes in $150k (or something ludicrous like that) from the charity as is it’s Managing Director is fraud.

    The whole thing is a con-job.

    Fraud is a bit inaccurate Kul. Non-profit or not, if it needs employees, you are entitled to get paid. The problem is with transparency. My mate has a charity and what he has done is got his core supporters and tell them he needs base funding that will cover all admin, wages etc. Then anyone else donating to the charity will know that their money will 100% go to where it needs to as other costs are covered. It’s a good model.

    I also had a look at the annual report, wages were $114k for their Dad. If he is full-time, that’s not unreasonable.

    What fact and how do you know that? to say the whole thing is a con job is pretty heavy, you wouldn’t wish your worse enemy the torment they have experienced. They have coped a lot of criticism like yours that in part led to the death of the younger brother.

    Haven’t the state government given extended trading hours to a dozen establishments on the proviso they provide live entertainment?

    And I would gather that Mr. Kelly would rather have both his sons back rather than run a charity borne of the back of their deaths.

    Also, does their mother draw a wage? If not, and she doesn’t work outside of the charity, you would gather she is working on a volunteer basis. Makes the $114K seem even less of a big deal again.



  • Wow. Only asked about the jerseys. Didn’t expect to divide opinion on how the charity pays anyone. Sorry guys.



  • That’s the problem with a lot of these charities, so much money is siphoned off in administrative fees.

    Ralph Kelly was actually on $125,754, $65,294 the year before that.
    There was a fantastic critical analysis of their reports carried out by someone last year during the LinkedIn event #keepSydneyOpen (Will the last person in Sydney please switch off the lights)

    The primary donor is - shock horror - Echo Entertainment.

    So the city’s only Casino bankrolls a charity with $250k, pays the father $125k a year and gets the Govt to shut down licensed venues across the CBD/Cross/Oxford at 1:30am… all under the guise of “stopping violence” while the Star remains outside the lockout zone.

    …which part of that isn’t suss?

    But if we frame it as “stay kind” then Average Joe won’t put two and two together

    I’ve managed several venues in the city before the lockouts, witnessed king-hits, blood, fights, etc. Nothing is more off-putting than violence and there isn’t a person in this city who wants to see it stop. But the Thomas Kelly Foundation is pathetic cover for deeper motives

    Yeah, doesn’t seem she does. Big board of directors that don’t draw a wage either.

    Again, haven’t State Govt. just approved for multiple venues to allow patrons in until 2am and serve until 3.30am as long on the proviso of live entertainment? It would seem that they are loosening the lock out laws.
