A suburban football club in Melbourne is being investigated for allegedly making players run laps naked at training.

The East Burwood Rams compete in the second division of the Eastern Football League.
Fairfax media says concerned parents of the players, who were as young as 17, prompted an official complaint.
The incident reportedly occurred during a recent Thursday night training session, as punishment for poor performance in a practice match.
''An [league] investigation is under way to assess its validity or otherwise,'' Eastern Football League chief executive Phil Murton told The Age.
''Once the investigation into the incident is completed, the details will be assessed and any penalties or sanctions will be delivered based on the findings and in accordance with [league] procedures and rules,'' he said.
The club, which is on the bottom of the ladder, is refusing to comment

That has gone past the club in Melbourne that booked strippers for after match entertainment in the changerooms at league headquarters.....

No wonder so many blokes are showering in their underwear these days.
FFS, an investigation?

There's nothing wrong with nudity.

I'm not necessarily referring to this incident, just the sensationalisation of nudity these days.
Funny, the more permissive our society becomes, the more prudish it gets at the same time.

Surely, if there's an issue, the league could ring up and say, "pull your head in, it's not a good look". But no, an investigation must ensue.
