My Soap Box....
I was wondering how long it would take and unfortuantely my soap box makes a return this week for its
first appearance of season 2005. And what gem it is.
The media never cease to amaze me. First up in 2005 is radio 3AW for its "breaking football story involving
Richmond". Sounds like a good headline doesn't it?
It tossed up more questions than answers and left all Tiger fans
wondering what the hell was going on. At quarter time in the game form Tasmania we were told that
"that the Police were investigating an allegation of assault and there were a number Richmond players at the nightclub in the early hours of Sunday morning".
Doesn't sound good does it?
As the afternoon progressed Tiger Director of Football Greg Miller was interviewed
on 3AW and explained that the Tiger players were there and yes the Club knew they were there
and the players were like every other patron at the nightclub and had given their names and details
to the police but were not involved.
Just another example of players being in the wrong place at the wrong time? Probably but it is extremely disappointing
how this "story" got the air time it did so early without all the facts being available. In a word - POOR
And my final word...
The Tigers travel interstate for the first time on May 21st when they take on the Lions at the
Gabba. OER will hit the road with the Tigers so keep an eye out for OER's match report.
