THE AMAZING ADVENUTRES OF ERIC

After feeling quite unwanted over the last few weeks, Eric has spent the his last few days boxed up in the boot of my car, driving around Adelaide. He was frustrated at not being able to get out, more.

He fondly remembered back to the days when he was 'let out of his box' to stretch out and see some of the footballing state. He recently enjoyed his time as a temporary fence but knew that really wasn't for him.

Just hanging around is what Eric loves to do. So, today, I managed to let him have some fresh air and get out and about. Who can guess which local football ground Eric revealed himself at, earlier today?

a couple of people who went to Elizabeth Oval (i went to Prospect) today told me at Globe Derby tonight that the guys with the banner got kicked out by the police, surely this isn't true as it isn't offensive in any manner at all it just gives a very important message that some of us care about OUR COMPETITION & those in charge are only caretakers of this competition for the PEOPLE it serves

please tell me it isn't true

BUT if it is why couldn't an official just ask for it to be removed/taken down rather than ringing the cops & having that done to people with a valid belief

if true SHAME SHAME SHAME

For those listening to the LifeFM coverage tonight, we had an in depth discussion about today's episode, in the 'Adventures of Eric'...

I had a lengthy chat with Centurion, in the car on my way from Elizabeth to Noarlunga, who filled me in on ALL of the details from today's event...

It just so happened that while i was at Noarlunga this evening, I bumped into Chris Davies. We had a quick chat about the Norwood v South game, then he asked me about the Dogs v Sturt game...

Of course, the topic of conversation immediately turned to Eric and what eventuated at Elizabrth, earlier on in the day...

i gave Chris Davies ALL the information that Centurion gave me earlier inthe night, including to emphasise the fact that Centurion was escorted out of the ground by Police, a clear result of over-reacting on WESLO's part...

I am limited in what I can repeat on here from my conversation with Mr Davies, other than to say he was not impressed at all and quite sympathetic towards Centurion.

So much so, after showing me a very interesting email on his phone, he got straight on his blower himself in an attempt to contact Centurion, straight away. Unfortunately Centurion couldn't take the call at the time but Chris asked me to tell Centurion that Chris will look into it on Monday and speak with him then.

I then spoke to Centurion myself, shortly after, filling him in on the conversation I'd just had with Mr Davies and advised Centurion he can expect a call from Chris on Monday.

I also made mention of the fact that I was going to bring the whole Eric eviction situation from today a topic of discussion at the conclusion of the LifeFM call...

We did exactly that and repeated the specific details of today's events, including mentioning On air that I had chatted with Chris Davies about the matter tonight and that more will come of it next week.

Centurion was satisfied with the air time he and Eric so rightly deserved and naturally, the rest of the commentary crew were very disappointed with that unfolded and the poor treatment Centurion received.

Any Chris Davies bashing is certainly unwarranted, I can assure you of this and I'm sure Centurion himself will concur. Stay tuned for the 'next episode' of 'The Adventures of Eric' !!!

Strange one that...Weslo and the police have no right in evicting any one from a ground because of a banner.. if the banner is offensive and crude in some way then yes, take it down, but it's not. It's no different then footy fans holding up small banners supporting their team.
I watched the ABC telecast of the Central v Sturt game and Eric was mentioned and one commentator said the banner is up behind the goals and went on to say 'well done boys keep it going'.
Should we evict the ABC commentator during a game for his remarks regarding Eric?
What happened to CENT... Very Happy .. I mean JUCEBOXMAN was ridiculous and the matter should be taken further.

send the clip to channel 9, i'm almost certain they'll show it, i'd send it to the reporter who went to Woodville & did the story there, he obviously is a passionate SANFL man, as for watching what happened shows how ''authority figures'' should NOT handle any situation with the public

Well in a perverse sort of way, all they (Police and Weslo alliance) have done is give much much greater notoriety to Eric. Juiceboxman can take some comfort in that, if not in the bruises. That sort of treatment is pathetic.

It is quite clear that Eric is winning the battle.

If as has been decreed that the sign is permissible (subject to certain locational restrictions) then you can't have Weslo / Police just going Maverick on what they think they should be moderating.

I think Chris Davies now needs to provide clear DIRECTION to Weslo and the Police about this sign and similar signs in general.

I saw the sign on the TV and heard the Commentators Kall. Good job.

Based on the accounts, and the YouTube footage, the SANFL should seriously consider terminating Weslo's contract. They're not the only security firm in the state and are replaceable.

It's interesting that there's been punch ups between patrons may not necessarily require Weslo to bring in police intervention but a group of patrons holding a signs requires Weslo to bring in police intervention

"WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS A FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE."
It all makes sense now. WESLO reported to CDFC's oval manager, Collette, that the sign was on display. Collette, who is in the club & can't see what's going on, asked WESLO if Eric WAS ON THE OVAL. WESLO said IT WAS. Collette then told them Eric has to go. WESLO seemed to think that within the grounds constituted on the oval! All sorted now. Can't wait to tell the grandkids one day......If I live that long Very Happy

Somebody should therefore tell Weslo the limits of their authority then.
It seems they are all too happy to act on supposition and heresay.

Perhaps the CDFC Oval Manager could have been more proactive to confirm what was actually happening. Still Eric is getting some reasonable profile from all this inept security intervention.

Looks like the WAFL clubs are fighting back as well.

Swan Districts is facing a fine of $500 for 'damaging the image of football in WA in the eyes of the public' and 'adversely affect the standing or reputation of the league or the league competition' by putting 'West Coast' instead of 'East Perth' on the scoreboard in the first quarter.
