one-eyed:
Collingwood youngster Jordan De Goey has lost his licence for six months after being caught drink driving, with Magpies leaders set to meet on Monday to determine a further course of action.

De Goey recorded a blood/alcohol reading of 0.095 in Port Melbourne on Saturday night. He notified the club following the reading.

The talented midfielder was suspended by the club last year for lying about how he broke his hand, claiming the injury happened while playing with his dog, when in fact occurred in a bar fight.

Collingwood culture = just 2 flags in the past 60 years  ;D.

Seriously though, aside from the fact De Goey is fortunate he didn't injure or kill another road user,

1. He previously lied to his Club about his broken hand.
2. Came back unfit for this preseason (according to teammate Tyson Goldsack).
3. Now caught drink driving.

If the Pies were serious they would sack him. 3 strikes you're out! But with Eddie & Buckley under so much pressure to turn things around onfield, I won't hold my breath. They would've been counting on De Goey being a key player for them this year.

Meh, the kids a jet, rules don't apply to those who might be superstars.

We all know that.
