    John Patton in big strife

    Two more women accuse Hawks star Jon Patton of lewd messages

    Hawks investigating allegations against Patton. Innocent till proven guilty of course.

    If Guilty, should he be sacked?

    The BF rumours thread has some of the messages posted up (now deleted). He's a grub.
    He'll probably just issue a public apology and dozens of other AFL players will be shitting themselves.

    Yeah, wouldn't be surprised if he went down the route of a 'my struggles with injury, combined with the stress of COVID led to some bad decisions that I deeply regret' type of apology.

    He revealed his douchbaggery years ago with his public snipe at Tom Boyd. Karma is a bitch.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    What would be an appropriate response from the AFL if he is proven to be guilty?

    A fine.

    A suspension is useless when he never gets on the paddock anyway.

    I reckon if Hawthorn could get him off their books they'd be more than happy to, so if he's able to be replaced on the primary list then I think they'll work with the AFL to have him sacked.

    Doesn’t seem to have been a lot of coverage of this one on afl.com.au

    He's broken some serious rules and I think there is a chance, given the way it's being reported and this isn't an isolated incident, he might be lucky if he keeps his job. I'd have to think that in most work places this gets you sacked

    Agree.

    Also, insert image of Hardwick doing cartwheels. This is just what the doctor ordered for him.

    Didn’t last time an AFL.com.au reporter reported on an AFL club incident get stood down for a few days? Can’t recall the exact incident but it was Mitch Cleary and something to do with Richmond from memory.

    Re: John Patton in big strife

    So if the images are unsolicited then isn't he just a garden variety sex offender?

    I mean just because he's doing it online and most likely from home, why would he be treated so much differently than anyone jumping out of the bushes on the Sandy foreshore and whipping it out?

    It's a serious offense if proven to be true. I would imagine there is a team with the police that deal with this
