    Re: Collingwood Football Club is guilty of systemic racism

    I am not surprised by the support that is being expressed for Eddie in some quarters and it is a perfect example of the root cause of the problem - the entitlement of racists. It's the "I am superior to you so my take, on any situation, trumps yours. You don't like a joke, you don't like a nickname. That's YOUR problem, not mine. You need to toughen up."
    And to those who support the victims of racism we have this: "Oh, so you're on his side are you? So you just want to virtue signal do you? Want to stifle freedom of speech and my rights as a 'sovereign citizen' do you? You're part of the problem."

    "Well NO! You are the effing problem! So take a step back and have a good, hard look ..."

    Sadly those types are incapable of, or refuse, to do that. That's why we have a problem.

    And finally, I have heard people say "Well Eddie was just saying he was proud of the club for facing up to things and doing something. "
    If he was so proud then why was to report buried for weeks so that it was eventually leaked to the press? Doesn't seem like the actions of a President who believes there is a problem.

    When Dippa came out with his gaffe, the AFL made him do a tour of aboriginal communities in the north. At the time of Eddie's 'gorilla' gaffe I felt he got off lightly.

    All this Footy show style, TV nudge-nudge wink-wink, casual racism has to go. It's not only about racism but also bullying. Bullying is a huge problem in AFL. Watch Footy Show and how people revel in Australian bullying. Go to a game and listen to the names people call each other. There is theatre and then there is flat out nastiness.

    Players have to realize they are in a work place and subject to the same laws as any other work place.
    You are not going to go around any office in Australia calling someone a chimp. AFL no exception.
    While nothing to do with Collingwood's situation and just an observation Bob Skilton went through his career nicknamed Chimp. Due to his long arms and hairy back I assume. Teddy always called him that.

    A good article written by the authors of the Do Better report.

    Amazing the perspective you can glean from something after the dust has settled.

    Re: Collingwood Football Club is guilty of systemic racism

    Ex player Shae MacNamara has posted some thoughts on Twitter, calling out a few key figures in particular LINK

    "Luke Ball (X AFLPA President),
    I know you were very close with Heritier in and outside of the club.
    You knew what he went through and you chose to stay silent when you could have validated his
    experience.
    Your self-preservation is really disappointing.

    Nick Maxwell,
    You were his brother, for real.
    He lived with you and you named your dog after him because it’s black.
    Your silence in choosing your self-preservation with the club is really disappointing.

    Coach Buckley,
    You tried to publicly deny this for several years... Why are you hiding now?
    Are you still being all that you can be?"

    He hasn't missed, has he!

    Actually made really good points, and the defenciveness of some of the responses coming in is pretty full on.

    Re: Collingwood Football Club is guilty of systemic racism

    Good old Joffa really helping Collingwood's cause...

    Ex-Pies cheersquad leader Jeff ‘Joffa’ Corfe won’t apologise for racist social media post, despite being condemned by club

    Former Collingwood cheersquad leader Jeff ‘Joffa’ Corfe says he won’t be apologising for a racist tweet he sent, despite the Magpies publicly urging him to say sorry.

    Corfe for years was synonymous with the football club, frequently seen at Collingwood games leading the cheer squad and wearing a gold jacket when his side was destined for victory before finishing up at the end of 2019 and moving overseas.

    On Tuesday night Corfe, who has been vocal in his support of former president Eddie McGuire and denouncing the idea of systemic racism at Collingwood, published an offensive tweet in which he took aim at aged care workers with an Indian background, writing: “Get rid of all Indian workers in aged care might be a start.”

    On Wednesday night, Collingwood’s official Twitter account condemned Corfe’s tweet (which remains live at the time of writing) and called on him to apologise.

    “Joffa Corfe is not a member of the Collingwood Football Club but has had a long association with our organisation,” the tweet read.

    “As such we cannot stand by his comments of last night. We condemn them and ask him to consider the hurt he has caused and an appropriate apology.”

    But Corfe wrote on Twitter that “an apology will not be forthcoming”, adding: “Have a wonderful day everyone. Off to surfers (Paradise) to live the life.”

    Prior to Collingwood’s tweet on Tuesday night, Corfe appeared to directly address backlash to his initial post, vowing: “I won’t be silenced by the bull***t minority pretending to be the do gooders I’ll have the balls to say and tweet whatever I want.”

    “To the losers out there in Twitter world feel free to copy and paste anything i say everywhere and anywhere.”

    Collingwood last month announced it had established an anti-racism expert group to help the club rid itself of “systemic racism”.

    It was one of several key recommendations in a club-commissioned ‘Do Better’ report that forensically reviewed the club’s history with racism.

    The report described the club’s history with racism as “distinct and egregious”, with the club’s leadership, “particularly its board”, needing to drive structural change.

    What a fool. I spent two years with the amazing staff on the front lines in aged care whilst they cared for my father. Many from the Philippines, they are talented, hard working amazing people. They should be lauded not attacked.
    They do incredible work that most couldn't comprehend despite the deplorable state of funding and resources.
    I usually ignore fools like Joffa, however aged care is such an emotive setting it's very hard to.

    I bet that's not the kind of work he'd be willing to do himself either
