The biggest mistake made was leaving Neil Balme at home. Those in charge on the Gold Coast have not kept things at the standard that we as members/supporters should expect.

It's about setting standards. No one can ever stop free will and abject stupidity, especially among young men. However given Neil Balme's work history and what he's done for our club in particular, it's impossible to believe that the group up there wouldn't have benefited from his presence.

Self discipline seems to be in very short supply this year at Richmond. We will tumble down the ladder over the next few years if this continues.

Does this mean the portion of Brooke's fine that was suspended now has to be paid?
The club will be up for a large bill.
Send the muppets back to Melbourne.

Culture eats talent for breakfast. This is not part of our culture nor do we want it to be. Send them both home to face the music and whatever will become of their careers.

It's being reported that the fine will be +$100k and some points.
Is the loss of points in the mix?

Surely not loss of points? No way? Port didn't lose points for Houston and Ladhams COVID breach.

Pretty sure the AFL stated anymore breaches will result in points being deducted, so I suspect it will cost us points

The rules are as per below apparently. Doesn't look like points will come into it - this time.

FIRST OFFENCE - up to $50,000 sanction (50% suspended) - $25,000 included in 2020 Soft Cap

SECOND OFFENCE – up to $75,000 sanction (plus $25,000 from first offence) - $100,000 included in 2020 Soft cap

THIRD & SUBSEQUENT OFFENCE – The Commission or the General Counsel may impose any sanction on any terms or conditions that they in their absolute discretion think fit which may include a monetary sanction, loss of Premiership points or loss of Draft picks.

Geez fellas - you just burnt someone’s salary and I imagine you’ll both be traded or delisted. How much stupidity?!!

They shouldn't be out that's the issue fullstop both returning from injury to stupidity. Our biggest mistake was not bringing a calm head up there like Bammy who so good at running the club to many incidents for my liking who ever made that call is stupid.

Why wasn’t the Buckley / Sanderson breach considered a second offence; after Sidebottom‘s first offence.

You'd have t ask Gill that question and he'd have to consult with Eddie before answering.
You know how it works.

Was listening to Leigh Matthews yesterday and don't know if this has been widely reported and if not... why not?
GEELONG HAS 165 PEOPLE IN THEIR HUB....!
60 of whom travelled up there on the last lot of flights. ......
Including board member James Sutherland. .... and his son... I suppose he's gone up there to keep Eddie's boy company!
