Lol head in the sand .
Let's start a little discussion .
This is my thoughts on what happened with the ONE WHITEY parent rule
Soon as it was exposed the afl went into damage control ..they're specialists at that
Suddenly the recruiter was changing his story & resigning.( my guess is ...say you were wrong & leave & it won't look so bad for future employment options .
If you get sacked ..then that's not a good look)
He does that.
Then afl house tells all clubs ( after it was revealed that indigenous playernumbers being drafted was a bad look only 3 were drafted that year) that they have to have at least a few indigenous players on list ...to trot out for pics & the look at us non racist afl image pics .
& make sure they're getting a token game or two to keep up the image .
Then piss them off to the reserves .
There all fixed
& the dumb dumb fans will believe that all is well
Move along there never was a rule
All a mistake
A good assessment of what likely occurred but I have to strongly disagree with you on a point you made Aflcrap. I’m thinking maybe you’re unwell today as it’s not like you to be misleading in your assessment.
You mentioned the Afl would purposefully mislead their fans to keep up an image that ‘all is well in Afl land’. It is without doubt the Afl does this often, however you then insinuate in a following line that by the Afl keeping recruitment of Aboriginal players happening that “the dumb dumb fans will believe that all is well
I’m afraid this is quite misleading as deep down I think you would find that thousands upon thousands upon thousands of Afl fans would be secretly happy with a one white parent or in fact both white parents rule was enforced in the Afl. We all know about the many many many thousands, possibly hundreds of thousands of Afl fans who took glee in booing Adam Goodes out of the game because Goodes took a strong stand against racism. We all saw the disgusting multi city multi state 6month event take place. So the evidence is quite clear that many many many Afl fans, even if they won’t admit it, and even if they don’t quite consciously want to agree with it, would actually truly ‘believe all is well’ if a one or two white parent rule was enforced at all clubs.
Sorry to pick at an otherwise decent post aflcrap but I think for clarity purposes we must keep in mind the awful endemic scourge of racism amongst Afl fans, particularly those from the more southern based teams in Perth Adelaide and Melbourne.
Thanks, and keep on truckin aflcrap, we all have our off days!
