I think it's very sensitive this story and doesn't need constant questionning on why a comment has been made by posters. Thanks.


How dare people question the whereabouts of $100,000 that has gone missing from a club that is in financial strife??? Move along people nothing to see here... If you can't question something like this - what can you question?

I think you may be playing up the sensitivity of this issue to try and silence some people searching for answers from their footy club. Answers they are entitled to get.

Next we will hear that nothing has occured and its all positive down at Richmond.

I couldn't agree more, regarding the sensitivities surrounding the situation...

Now...

If you could just point out where I have questioned a comment being made on this topic, let alone constant questioning, thanks?



Personally as a member of the club i don't care greatly about the sensitivities of the situation.

A former employee has allegedly taken a large amount of money from the club. I don't see how the Police can't be involved in this.

I am certain that if it were a bar person that did this, there wouldn't be any hesitation, in involving the Police in dealing with it even if the same sensitivities were involved.

Those sensitivities or the money allegedly being paid back don't IMO mean the club shouldn't be taking action against the individual. If what has been reported is true then a criminal offence took place and the person/people responsible should be made accountable for their actions.

Well said, wycbloods...

FWIW - I totally agree with you. I was just agreeing with 'bounceoftheball' that it is a sensitive matter, not implying that it justifies no further comment.

If it was printed in the Tiser then it is likely that the information is probably talking about the West Adelaide Soccor club (would fit with the dates that the tiser seems to get information) and how it eventually became no more.

Yes all Stan is very sinical today, not sure what it is. Could just be a monday. ;)

No sensitivities justify ripping off the club, but releasing what happened is a sensitive situation.

can anyone give me ONE good reason why this wouldn't be investigated properly, involving police, without using the "sensitivities" BS as an excuse for covering things up?

Even if all the money has been recovered, that doesn't make what happened ok!

I think that human nature of the need to know, particularly when someone will not tell you is just driving this issue on further and further.

Speculation, rumour, innuendo etc. will run rife until some information is released and the members of the West Adelaide Football Club are entitled to some kind of answer other than "don't worry about it, we are handling it".

Now I have no idea what has happened, who is alledgedly involved and I don't even pretend to assume.

But to say that there are "sensitivities" regarding it just feeds human nature to know.

Surely a communication saying something like

"the WAFC understands that recent events within the club have been made public without full knowledge of the situation. Please be ensured that the club is working responsibly to recover any loss to the club that may have occured, whilst maintaining its duty of care to our clubs most important asset, the people withing the WAFC community.

It is imperitive that the privacy of both the alledged party and the WAFC is respected and maintained during this particularly dificult time for both parties to achieve the best possible outcome.

The WAFC has a duty of care to its employees, players, volunteers, members and their families, as well as non member supporters and the wider football public. Within that duty we there is an expectation we are responsible to communicate with our members and administer the club appropriately. Please be assured that the club will release information to its members and community as approriate, at the appropriate time.

The WAFC would like to inform its members that it is conducting a full investigation in to how the club has arrived in this position, including what systems were in place and how they have failed both the club and its people. The outcomes of this investigation will be presented at the Annual General Meeting scheduled to be held on xxth of whenever.

Once again the WAFC would like to thank its member for their loyalty, trust and patients until such time further details can be released."

It doesn't have to say anything, other than "hey, it is best for everyone right now if this shit stayed in house for the moment and we are making sure it won't happen again"

Get something out there and people will return to banging on about how much of a great footballer but shit bloke Boyd is, that South will never win a flag because they are systematically stuffed and Glenelg wear dresses.

Perhaps keeping the police out of it was a motivation in the money being "returned". As a club would I rather have the $100k back, offender resign and no charges laid or the person in jail and still $100k out of pocket? Not suggesting it was ethically correct but perhaps that call was made on financial grounds.

Kym Russell apparently had a near fatal car accident recently according to what I've heard which is probably why he can't be contacted. He may still be in hospital.

I don't care what happened or who was involved, but 'its sensitive' is a complete load of bollocks.

Maybe if you did know what happened you wouldn't think it was a load of bollocks. West have handled the situation with compassion. Some things are bigger than football.

This is very true.

If it were my club, all I would ask for is a little bit more communication, that is all.
