    I won't be listening to him but he deserves to come back as it was never going to be a long term sentence.
    Can you share more on this point?

    My understanding is he was to do a number of behavioral type courses and a couple of them are still to be completed.

    If you were a serious organisation he wouldn't get past a reference check. He made sexist homophobic remarks about a colleague. Gross.

    I also noted that Eddie McGuire's son was reporting for Channel 9 Sport last night. How good is nepotism!!!

    He probably needs a bit more time out, however I don't think his actions were that heinous that he should be shunned forever.

    Nepo babies have to work thrice as hard once they're in the door though, right?

    As apologies go, his was sincere, full of remorse and shame, and totally accountable. He did the crime and he wore the consequences without playing the mental health card so fancied by others (obviously there are those who genuinely suffer from mental health, but I daresay not all who act and behave disgracefully can't help but do so because they are suffering from mental health).

    I don't have a problem with him getting another chance after doing his penance, but then I don't really care because I've almost 100% ceased devouring the AFEL media and I am a virtual non-consumer of SEN.

    Re: Beveridge v Morris in the court of public opinion

    His comments were revolting and deeply personal rather than silly. Would any of us get another gig in the same industry after an incident like this, “penitent” or otherwise? I don’t feel he is owed anything by the industry after “doing his time” and I’m constantly bemused at the idea that anyone would need a bit of re-education to realise what is unacceptable.

    But we see this time and again - Wayne Carey welcomed back into the fold after multiple family violence assaults, but his possession of white powder was a bridge too far.

    I think second chances are good, Dani Laidley is a great story for example after doing what many would consider far worse things.

    The AFL industry has embraced her and that’s fantastic; albeit the cynic in me that I push down deep questions some folks motivation.

    People are people and make mistakes. Let’s hope he learns, or crosses Bevo in the toilet at the Brownlow!

    What jobs has Dani gotten since her stalking charge in 2020 (6 months into a gender transition and the middle of Covid)? The public narrative has forgiven her and generally people would understand she was probably going through some pretty rough times but aside from occasional club events it seems like there's not really any similar benefit to her.

    Tom just revealed himself to be a dickhead which should be enough that I don't have to see him again but that's unthinkable to other dickheads who'd hate to think they could lose anything by being a dickhead.

    What timeslot are they going to be on.

    While we are talking about jobs for boys, I see Eddie McGuire's son in on Ch.9 news
    For those who were always the underdogs and wore it as a badge of honour.

    I think it's a lead in on Sundays to the footy coverage so probably 10 to midday

    Do people really still listen to SEN?

    My advice - just avoid it all and come here. Vote with your dials! Actually I don't mind Raph Epstein. Also the Quiz! Anyone else that used to be addicted to the ABC quiz at midnight? My old man and I would stay up to battle it out and laugh at the regulars who really just wanted to give shout outs.
