You'd safely say waiting for a cab at 1.30 in the morning they were both pissed.

And you'd safely say they mouthed off, especially Watmough, and even more especially, a kiwi.

If anyone says they weren't pissed, ask yourselves why they were cabbing it

Surely showing any pride in the Manly jumper is provocation enough? 

And for a lot worse than this I would have thought......

Wily,

I don't remember any (my memory isn't great), maybe you could google it.  Only one I can remember in Vic is Greg Inglis ... but wait he plays NRL, not AFL.

Yeah, what about the new signing at St Kilda, now up on rape and assult charges after his festive season fun? Or the kid recently drafted to the Tigers now in major trouble again, who was already on parole. Or the piss up trouble a few Carlton players got it at Xmas time. They are all the same, in any of these codes. Trying to point the finger at just one lot is pathetically stupid.

Lovett hasn't been charged with anything yet 777.  Apart from the alleged rape, the rest of the stuff is small fry compared to league.

Both codes are as bad as each other. Plenty still happens that gets covered up.

The AFL particularly in SA, WA & to a lesser extent Victoria clubs do deals with the media not to report certain things. In return the journalists are given access to certain players and leaked news stories before others. The same thing happens in the NRL particularly in Brisbane & Newcastle.

Clubs like West Coast, Adelaide Crows, Newcastle  and Broncos are the biggest news in town and the journos cant afford to get the clubs off side and be black banned so meekly surrender which is how Cousins, Johns and Lockyer get so out of control.

The ruling bodies of both codes (AFL and NRL) are also just as bad. The cover ups in both codes is amazing. Not one of any major scandal or issue in either code has ever been announced by the ruling body, they are always 2nd off the rank after someone in the media has broken the story and they then have to deal with it. Those that they can get hold of first hand are cover up.

Was it Greg Bird ? Not sure though, semi educated guess.

Didn't she change her story when it went to trial or something ?

Sky,

I guess the point I was trying to make is in regards to your views, and many others views, it seems to be only NRL players.

I find it odd that you remember Greg Bird but in what is a typical, Victorian or AFL way, you can't name the AFL blokes who have done the same thing.

Partly it's the medias fault who turn a blind eye to the equally vile behaviour of AFL & Wallaby players. The amount of publicity is out of balance

Albert Proud was found guilty of galssing his girfriend over the same time frame of Bird but the silence is deafening.
Ditto for the Adelaide AFL player who did the same.

Not having a go at you personally mate but I'm amazed by your earlier comment re NRL players

Sources say the players noticed a young woman crying in the street and asked about her welfare.

Their inquiries provoked a group at a nearby house party, which contained several large men of Pacific Islander appearance.

 Matai has said he remembered seeing a man approach, but not the punch that knocked him unconscious for several minutes.

Watmough was left alone to defend his teammate and suffered a badly bruised eye.

I forgot about that guy from the Lions.  Nathan Bock was the player from the Crows, not sure what happened with that one re charges.

While I agree that all codes have players who act in a terrible manner, to my eye the NRL do seem to have a higher % of idiots among their ranks.

Another one down for the AFL. There can be no argument both codes are as bas as each other.

Father says Brett Stewart's Penis Visible

February 4, 2010 - 7:23PM


Brett Stewart's pants were undone and his "old guy" was visible when a father confronted the Manly rugby league star about sex assault claims, a court has been told.

The father told police his 17-year-old daughter had pointed to a man in a suit, whom she said had just "hurt her".

He said he confronted the man, who denied touching his daughter, and pointed to a nearby townhouse where he said he lived and from where a woman came out.

"She looked towards his crotch and said 'why are your pants undone?' and pointed at his crotch," the father said.

The father told police the man was clearly drunk and he noticed the man's belt was open and his fly was undone.

"I could clearly see his old guy," he said, later describing what he saw as the top of the man's penis, still inside his pants.

The statements were included in the prosecution brief of evidence tendered at Stewart's committal hearing on Thursday at Sydney's Downing Centre Local Court.

Stewart, 24, is charged with having sexual intercourse, involving digital penetration, with the girl without her consent on the evening of March 6, 2009 at North Manly.

The full-back also is charged with assault with an act of indecency, namely that he "forced his tongue into her mouth".

Last April, Stewart's lawyer formally entered pleas of not guilty.

In her tendered statement, the girl said she was outside the Manly townhouse complex when a man pulled up in a taxi.

He asked her what she was doing and when she replied having a cigarette, he said "yuck".

The teenager said she could see he was drunk.

She said the man lent towards her face and "before I had time to move or react he put his tongue in my mouth".

She pushed him in the chest, he again put his tongue in her mouth and she again pushed him, the teenager told police.

The man immediately then put one of his hands under her shorts and knickers and placed at least one finger in her vagina, she said.

She managed to push him off and ran to tell her father, as she "started to cry and shake".

The father told police when he confronted the man, he yelled at him and denied touching his daughter.

"The guy kept saying something about 'don't you know who I am' and something about football," the father said.

"I didn't know what he was talking about because I don't follow football."

In one of her statements, the girl said: "I think about what happened all the time and it makes me feel ashamed and heaps sad.

"I didn't do anything to make him do this to me."

Deputy chief magistrate Paul Cloran adjourned the hearing to March 22.
