What stands out to me about Sydney Stack in the last 4 years is he does not respect Rules or the Law

He just does not adhere to rules , law & Conditions and thinks his above all this

Doesnt matter how much talent you have that wont get you through

Should have taken the lead of 17 other clubs and not drafted him .. it’s not worth it . Does anyone know who paid the fine during the CoVid fiasco ?
You wouldn’t have drafted Marion Pickett either.
Provably would have sided with KB and sacked Dusty too.
How’s the view from your high horse?

Revenue Raiser Policeman armed with radar gun resting near the road pings the barely run red and stops the car. Syd explains the situation but RRP knows who he has stopped and recognises a quota filling payday and a good pub story.

Mr Policeman would have had a huge laugh if Sydney tried to fly a story that elaborately bizarre. And still would have booked him, as he should.

Sydney is about the same age as Marlion when got out of jail. It took Marlion several years of strong state league footy to earn a place at an AFL club and even then he had his ups and downs with the law and football form. Hopefully this is bottom of the barrel for Sydney, which serves as a wake up call and he knuckles down to make the most of his talent.

To say we should never have taken a chance on Sydney is a ridiculous statement

My brother in law had a Christmas party at the Richmond club hotel upstairs last year that was shared with the tiger boys. Had some pretty damning things to say about syd’s behaviour. Unfortunately another one of our stars was just as bad. Wrote him off after hearing this. Hope the kid gets help and is ok moving forward.

If the allegations are true, then it's a series of bad decisions.

No licence
Unregistered car
Drinking
red light

Hope he can turn his life around - must be hard having it all ahead of you in 2019 only to lose it all.
I'd see it as one decision but multiple infractions

From day one, got dropped from junior state duties as well, tracked in a similar manner to Garlett, some players don't have it in their DNA.

Yeah, I'd see the decision to drive unlicenced as a bad decision, decision to drive an unregistered car another bad decision - maybe you could argue these are connected.

The decision to drink then drive is a completely separate decision... the red light - ok, an accident/lack of attention rather than a decision.

LOL what? He'd already left the club after this incident.

If you are talking about the kebabgate thing, we kept paying him and kept him on the list for two years after that.

If he was intoxicated, it could be impaired ability to drive and make decisions.
Each individual infraction requires an individual decision. They might have all been undertaken in the same time space, but you have to make a choice on what to do each time.
I hope Syd gets support post career. I hope he adjusts his choices. I loved watching him play and probably disproportionately hoped he'd succeed.
But let's stop the bleeding heart response. If it was some ratbag from Workingclassarea_01, no on here would be making excuses.

So, did the full facts get released yet? The gallows construction is steaming ahead and the executioner in place.

Drink driving should not be tolerated and running a red light is equally serious as both can take a life.
Unlicensed driving and unregistered vehicle? Meh. Plenty of people that can't drive have licenses. Vehicle registration aside from the third party insurance requirement is just a tax.

Or i'd argue its a single decision with a number of factors that needed to be considered.


Shall i drive? (Single decision required)
Facts:
car unregistered (negative)
i'm unlicensed (negative)
I'm too drunk to legally drive (negative)
I am drinking woohoo (positive)
So taking all the factors in, its clear that i can drive yay!! (Single decision made)


We are talking semantics, but it helps the tendency to jump on someone (mutiple bad decisions) and bring a lynch mob to a hysterical frenzy.
He drove after drinking, a bad decision and its not ok.
