IMO he's in a lot of trouble, and deservedly so. He is entitled to defend his case (although it appears he was not very convincing this morning on radio), but these public comments as reported are disgraceful.

Shame to see Danny Frawley involved, who I have always respected as a decent individual. At least his apology was sincere. He is rightly embarrassed.

Amazing the abuse that is directed towards Caro from the boys club. It is never nice being in the firing line (e.g. when she sets her sights on Richmond), but she is a shining light in a woefully inbred industry.

Hey he still managed to get a woman's football team something our female leader couldn't.

So are Geelongs not capable either?

We seem to "miss out" on alot. Can't land a big fish, can't sign a footy list manager with proven experience so settle for one with no experience, settling for a mediocre coach instead of searching for the next gun coach, no major change to recruiting team in years. If only our leaders were as bad as Geelongs.

Actually says our leaders aren't that capable.
Nah, just shows the AFL panders to the mob making the biggest noise. Eddie the hot gospelling spruiker of everything Colonwood and everything else that's good for Eddie, was always going to be first in line to get a ticket to the female comp.
Wonder how everyone who missed out feels about Eddie Colonwood leading the collective blokey brain fart on Dribble M?
Reckon poor old Polo pony n his mates at AFL house would just be overjoyed at the buffoonery.
There'll be thirty seconds of public mea culpa n humble apologies all round then business as usual.

AFL will be way to busy parking the size twelves fair between the cheeks of that nasty little Scott character to waste much time being distracted by the radio buffoonery.

Bloody funny to see that the other Jimbob has managed to be front n centre all this weekend. Covered themselves in glory this week has Norf. Team has tried to rough up the Hawks n lost, Coach has tried to rough up the poor mouldy green maggots n lost. Jimbob's joined the pack n gone the stomp on Caro n lost.
Rarely see a mob pull so many bone headed howlers in such a short time.

Probably because not all that many actually listen to drivel M.

Most people would have missed it in the general bullshit that Dribble MeMeMe carry on with around their broadcasts. Apparently someone put the segment up onto social media n the fauxtrage jumped into overdrive.
Stupid boofhead comments because Eddie n Caro have some issues going on have now been blown into full scale outrage by tainting the hype over the shiny new womens league n the AFL affiliating itself with more social agendas of curing the world of everything.

what staggers me the most about this is the feedback from callers and posts on social media saying that this has been overblown by the PC brigade. absolutely disgusting attitudes. it just proves that the misogynist 'boys will be boys' mentality is still well and truly alive in footy culture.

Yep, there's probably that "boys will be boys" mentality.

Of course then there's the delightful types like Clementine Ford who blames the top 10 woes of the world as "1. men 2. men 3. men 4. men 5. men 6. men" etc.

Is the AFL really upset by the comments made by Eddie and Co?
They chose a couple of days later, to give Collingwood one of the women's football franchises.

Where are the "Hang Dusty" Brigade. I thought they'd be all over this thread.

Not the world's greatest crime, but the AFL has whacked people hard over much less. If you're going to have social policies in place, they need to be enforced consistently otherwise they're worse than useless. Over to you, AFL.
