Look, Richmond. There area plenty of appropriate touchable areas on the human body that aren't sexual assault but that won't endanger low flying birds. Carrying on like it's an incomprehensible concept. Do better.

Everything about that is wrong - you don't excuse grabbing someone's package as 'dumb'; you don't excuse stuffing your thumb up someone's bum as 'fooling around'; you don't presume everything's ok because your club lawyer (of all people) questioned the victim. Otherwise, you can just have a good old fooling around grope of anyone you know anywhere you want as long as you laugh about it - on the bus, in an elevator with workmates, at the self-serve checkout at Woolies, anywhere. Tough if the recipient objects, it's all in fun hey.

Sure, there's a lot of things about the world I don't get, but wanting to stuff your thumb up another bloke's bum has to top the list.

More accuracy is required with Dockerland subject headings. I thought this was going to be about a group of WCE players.

This is something I don't understand. Will the pat on the bum be unacceptable soon?

Don't get me wrong, if this was a boss making free with the body of an underling, I'd be all for calling them out. But from where I stood it was two young guys of equal status, and I'm quite sure they could sort it out themselves. "Hey bud, I appreciate that you've got the hots for me, but I'm not interested, so stop going for the grope." That should about do it.

Cue moralising from all and sundry...

Take the cameras out of the rooms, no-ones gunna dong a teammate with all of Australia watching.

RR, I agree that this is something that two teammates can sort out between themselves. Maybe this sort of horseplay is how the Tigers roll, and all players are OK with it.

But just because it happens between equals doesn’t make it right. Only the players being OK with it makes it OK.

If it’s from someone in a position of power to an underling, that just makes a bad thing worse.

Tell you what, get out there and go up and give some bloke a package grapple - see what happens.

I’ve long thought the draft age should be raised by a year, if for no other reason than it doesn’t seem like a great idea that players go straight from high school to full time in a footy club (especially when that club can be very far from home).

This sort of carry-on is a good example of why the idea might have some merit.

I wonder if some time in the future some academic will do a study of whether footballers living in a hub revert to behaving like 14 year olds.

This has obviously happened over two games as per the footage shown. The poor guy looked so uncomfortable with it all and from two different teammates. He hesitated in the aftermath to clap even, as it meant removing his hands from protecting himself.
I can’t help but think that if the cameras hadn’t have been there, he would’ve been at liberty to belt them one. And they deserved it. Appalling behaviour.

Anyone who thinks that player was comfortable with what was happening and it was just boys being boys is kidding themselves. He looks so uncomfortable and I don’t imagine he is in a position in the team to belt those dickheads, cameras or no cameras.
