    After a day I moderated on my view of Bevo, after some sleep I've moderated further and a de-escalation of the situation from us was important and I think the apology and the further statement for our corporate stakeholders and members generally was important.
    I'm happy to hear from her more and more, she's brilliant. I just thought Bevo's response was first class and more than sufficient.

    The Karma bus with Morris just makes it all so much better. I just wished Bevo had have leaked the story on Morris before Fox did.

    I think the club's response was exactly the right call, and hit the right tone both in calling out his actions and also in showing him support.

    Welcome back Sedat, a post or two on the music board needs your input.

    Back to Bevo I'm not comfortable with how this has played out today.

    Gut feel is if Peter Gordon was still in the chair not sure we'd have an apology - we would've stood with Bevo and moved on.

    Ride the wave for 25 weeks of us against them mentality.

    Re: Club Statement

    The more I read the clubs response it is corporate fluff and we put it out to be seen to being doing the right thing. Wonder what crisis management expert pulled it together? Or did we just google "crisis management statement"?

    Now I'm wonder if those are Luke's words or the clubs?

    I don't agree with you but man I love how you write!

    House of the mouse I lolzed hard.

    Our Walt would never be controversial. He's as pure as the white skin of a Teutonic knight.....

    Re: Club Statement

    As usual, what Sedat said!

    Melbourne backed their coach to the hilt in the face of much worse. We go the crisis management route and condone ours for hurting the feelings of a grub.

    Weak AP.

    Goodwin's were historical allegations that they had already dealt with at the time. They had every reason to support a coach who had (according to them) improved in those areas since. And just won a premiership.

    This was a fresh and very public situation - crisis management was the correct route.

    Nice stuff all round imo, Bevo stuffed up and apologised. Issue dead and we move on.
    The curse is dead.

    Club handed it perfectly. You canít defend that behaviour, tone and conduct no matter how right you are. The club had to be strong and apologise unequivocally to put this to bed. Move on.

    The irony is that it is now Morris who is in hot water and has been stood down.

    Bevo's apology was more than sufficient, the rest is unnecessary PC imo. In his 157 or so games as our coach he has never overstepped the line. Any move by the Club to sanction him for this would lead to a member and supporter revolt. He has the utmost respect.

    I guess we don't have to think about the AFL and commercial partnerships.

    Like it or not there's a business side to the club that needs to be managed.

    Which is why the apology was sufficient. He owned his behaviour and admitted he made a mistake. I doubt sponsors or commercial partners would have been demanding the club leaders to come out and publicly condone him. And if we’d held fire for about 3 hours, it would have been even more of a non issue.

    The club condoning him and donating $20k on Bevo’s behalf? Please.
