How's Demetriou being on Classified? Some kind of sick joke. The guy is an embarassment after the Crown investigation.
He’s a consistently dodgy operator.

He was filling his boots between the AFL great escape and the Crown fiasco...

And I was interested to hear his response to Eddie's probing and prodding re: Benny as the next CEO of the AFL.

Clear as day to me that the AFL, incl Demetriou, are not pro-Gale. Just a vibe I have. Maybe Benny has too much integrity for the AFL to handle, maybe he wont continue with their dodgy ways, their boys club, their junkets and head office fat cat practices. Maybe Benny places too much attention on good culture, respect and diversity as the backbone to a good business - something the AFL doesnt. Maybe he respects the fans and other stakeholders too much. Maybe he's just too good a guy compared to their political manoeuvering, to be recruited to a job he would be perfect for. Pity for them. So... Demetriou mentions names like Xavier Campbell as if he's achieved greatness at Essendon (??) or Dave Matthews (anyone watch the Amazon doco; yeah sure great leader is Matthews!!) and even mentions 66 year old Brian Cook. Really? As if. They have overlooked Cook on 2 or occasions.

By mentioning these other names - can you believe he mentioned Xavier Campbell, for what achievements ?? - its a way to downplay Gale. Benny has no chance, he has too many genuinely good and authentic characteristics and strengths to play in the bullpit, corrupt ways of the AFL.

Yeah that's been a vibe for a while. I suspect things are very cosy for the boys club and they'd suspect Gale would clean the place out. They aren't beholden to shareholders so the books are closed. Who knows what someone with integrity in the top job would find.

If somehow Benny did get the gig, it would be worth investing in paper shredding rental firms.

Get ready for a mini explosion of joy.
All week all i heard 'even if they lose and don't get blown away, they can take things away from the game'
Now they have won, Klennex needs to increase its production

Robbo posted his dislike of the weekend.
"Lynch on 800k and doing sweet FA"
He has deleted the post.
Over 100 replies telling him to STFU. Even supporters from other clubs were giving it to him.

Robbo has had a massive issue with Lynch from the time he left GC to join us. I bet he had money on him staying there.
Its a pity he always blames him when we aren't going well.
Its 2 times now where he has attacked him for us losing.
Pity last year The fat fuk didn't notice that Hawkins was MIA in the GF, while Lynch was marking them in the goal square.
Lynch has earnt every cent with the success of the club has had since he has been There.
Why isn't Buddy his 'dislike of the last 4 years?' 1 mill 21 games

Anyone else noticed after the Melbourne game, Brad johnson (has not tipped us once this year) was very very careful not to bag us?
They are know we are still the side that can destroy there dreams.

So Slobbo does't like Tom......... well I don't like the fact that Slobbo can sit at home, slurp down alcohol, make stuff up and write about it.

He's got to be half p!ssed most of the times, because how many times has he apologised or deleted what he has written.

Robbo blocked me from looking at his twitter feed a long time ago - over the Dons supplement stuff.

Guess I'm not missing much.
