Living overseas I might miss some of the news on some days but one story is getting plenty of world wide coverage, and that is the drug scam at the Essendon football club.
We are led to believe the players are intelligent young men, so why did they allow themselves to be injected with "unknown substances". How stupid are they? Don't we as parents educate our children " don't talk to strangers, don't take anything that you do not know" etc
But the thing that has me really angry is that there is all this talk of stand downs and charges and relative little talk of why Stephen Milne is allowed to play for StKilda when in my eyes he has been charged with a much greater crime. RAPE. It shows how the AFL regard women and as the mother of three amazing young women, my heart bleeds for the young woman involved and her family.
I don't know as one person how to make a difference except to say
AFL clean up your act....you will not be getting one more cent from me. I am voting with my purse!
