Again, not true.

Mr Grech gave his version which has been supported by other persons sitting in that proximity.

One example that has been reported:

Bloke 2 rows in front of us in M22 just had a visit from no less than 6 Vic police for a “chat” about his loud support of his team’s goal .. not swearing ... not offensive in any way ... just loud - I give up AFLPiesDees

You dragged in social media posts from last year where he swore and said that made him unreliable. In an earlier post where the witnesses were discussed, you dismissed them as unreliable.

You tried to justify the inclusion of completely unrelated material by saying in a dispute between him and the police, you would find the police more reliable. Nice call, except there has been no dispute between his version and Police. None!

So the justification for the character assassination attempt simply isn't there.

You tried to obfuscate the while thing so you can say whatever you like then call it a grey area and not have to justify your comments.

It is not a grey area. It is indeed black and white. A person was wrongly reported and the Police asked him to tone down the volume. Its not Grech at fault nor the Police because they are required to respond. The fact that he was left there and not spoken to further indicates the Police had a good understanding of events, did what protocol required and walked away.

I guess maybe they should have researched his social media accounts before concerning themselves with the facts, right?

teasea, since Dalgliesh still has hair (from memory) perhaps hairy headed flog would be appropriate

“A “chat” about his loud support of his team’s goal .. not swearing ... not offensive in any way ... just loud - I give up.”

Ok, that’s what Nicole thought that chat was about. The police said to Grech that Melbourne fans had alerted security about his behaviour. Does Nicole have a view about what the Melbourne fans were complaining about - I’m guessing about 10 minutes before the police arrived (unless they were right on the scene)? Or did she just connect the last goal celebration with when police turned up? What type of comments does she consider offensive and not offensive?

I’m saying we weren’t there and there isn’t enough evidence to know whether Grech crossed the fuzzy line or police overstepped the mark, and you give me a tweet from a random and say it’s black and white? Good grief.

This just seems like a weird example, an uncomfortable hero and very little consequence to base a wide-ranging attack on the AFL impinging civil liberties.

We’ve probably all witnessed a supporter intentionally and strongly trying to stir up opposition supporters, it rarely results in a good day at the footy. Banter with a bit of humour normally trumps the boofhead bully boy tactics.

If there was any evidence that he was swearing, then he would have been removed based on the original complaint, as you well know.

Perhaps 'Nicole' was there the whole time as people do when they go to the footy, especially as the incident took place in the 2nd quarter. I'd suggest 'Nicole' probably knows what she's talking about.

Still, dragging up social media posts from last year and trying to find any kind of justification for that by 'inventing' a dispute between Grech and the Police version doersn't really fly does it? That was a hatchet job.

Also, you may have missed the bit where others have been removed from the football for seemingly trivial events that in conjunction with this incident certainly give rise to the suggestion that the AFL are impinging civil liberties. You must have missed all that on your searches for material to use against Grech

Good Lord, Morgan.

Give it a shake and put it away already.

At this point I feel like Chris Judd sitting next to Fevola at the Brownlow.

I think that’s a little unfair Shane. I wouldn’t say you’re quite as smug and self-righteous as Chris Judd.

The trouble gets worse when journalists only search Twitter for information.

Yeti, "If there was any evidence that he was swearing, then he would have been removed based on the original complaint, as you well know."

Well that is news to me. I swear at the footy all the time (loudly), and I don't get removed.

RR, you do if there is a complaint made against you.

If you do something that causes the security guards to attend, you will be removed based solely on the original complaint.

I would have thought the recent crackdown on minor matters might have alerted you to the current conditions.

edit: Read the conditions of entry next time you go. When you agree to enter you agree to certain conditions and anti-social behaviour (including swearing) is grounds for removal
