The one thing I am looking forward to this season is the moment that the 17 year old girl – who can’t be named for legal reasons – at the centre of the St Kilda photo fun turns 18 and can be named, for legal reasons.
For only then will we see what this girl really possesses in the way of siren like qualities (and not of the quarter time variety) that has grown, much older footballers allowing her open access to their computer files and emailing facilities and possessed St Kilda’s senior people to wish her eradicated from the planet, only then to shack her up and buy her gifts, so much so that Ricky Nixon, manager of Nick Riewoldt, yes, he of the clipped pubes, to take some wine offerings to her on more than one occasion.
Is this a new Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo or Tokyo Joe and if so just why hasn’t St Kilda’s most tragic supporter, Shane Warne been in the mix?
It has been nice to see tabloid journalism is not dropping its standards in its coverage of the impending sacking of Brendan Fevola from the Brisbane Lions. With the first scent of blood in the water, out comes the usual drivel. ‘Sources close to Fevola say he would consider suing the Lions (if they terminate his contract).’ Then, Fevola would also consider ‘heading to the United States to pursue an NFL career’ citing a ‘local scout working on behalf of the aspiring punter had been in touch with clubs in the US about the possibility.’ Scout, save yourself the Skype calls.
But while Brendan and the media are musing on such things, (and for Brendan’s stake why isn’t there talk of an e-book or a film about his life to be directed by Peter Weir, starring Nicole Kidman) Brendan actually posts (perhaps with no consideration) on his Facebook page offering his services as a full-forward. Brilliant.
If the Lions can’t sack Fevola wihout much cost for the various indiscretions then whoever was involved in writing up his contract need to be tied to a rock under the Wivenhoe Dam awaiting the next big rain. That may well include coach Michael Voss, who for mine will be the first coach sacked this season, about round 6.
As for all that cackling around Royal Parade, Carlton, well that isn’t the kookaburras in the park but the Carlton board, players and supporters celebrating the deal of the century. They may not secure another premiership for years, but oh my goodness, they are winners today.
More next Sunday, til then stay away from the Moorabbin area in case you too get drawn onto the rocks of Ricky Nixon’s life.
