I wonder what action the SANFL will/has taken over this fiasco. It an absolute bloody disgrace.
Surely with West Adelaides influence on the SANFL commission and the SANFL in general they should come down on the Crows like a ton of bricks.
.... but then again West like Norwood did vote YES for the admission of AFL teams into the competition, after their penalties for breaching the salary cap vanished didnt they...?? it could be said....you reap what you sew...

I really don't think which club voted for what has any relevance at all.

There is basic respect for clubs and opposition and it would appear the Crows don't have it.

I cannot think of any justification for the Crows demanding this sort of preferential treatment, nor SANFL officials getting to be in a position to play cop on such an issue.

I would think that it needs to be brought up with the sanfl collectively that clubs won't stand for this sort of crap.

Stating the obvious, the Crows may be an AFL club but they are playing in the sanfl under sanfl rules.

B & W, Norwood's penalties were watered down to get their vote. West not so much, despite Norwood's breach being far more severe.

okay.. I agree it was a cheap shot....but all that was required was one more NO vote for it not to happen.....and look what we have now as a competition; it's just a dogs breakfast.

I haven't read it, but have had the gist of an article in the Advertiser today saying the Crows were totally right in their actions at Norwood last Sunday.

From what has been read to me the article is wrong in almost every respect and is an ill-informed defence of the Crows.

There is documentary evidence to show the article is incorrect, along with many witnesses to what happened, including me. I was there when the request to stop the Feserves game was made.

The srticle also calls for a Crows Academy team that is fine, except the writer hasn't spoke to the AFC about that, obviously.

I've now had the article sent to me so I'll read it and tetract anything I've said that is incorrect

I've now read it.

It is garbage from start to finish, just ignorant rubbish.

An apology and a correction is in order.

Says a lot about some Advertiser journalism.

Not only is it garbage, but I believe the SANFL has, or will, rule that the Crows were totally wrong.

Sorry, Michelangelo, that is pathetic 'journalism' and smacks of toadying to an AFL club.

I see Rucci has been trawling the footy forums for stories once again.

While it's pretty clear the AFC are in the wrong here, there's a reason why Domain sponsor the Crows, and why they break stories to Caroline Wilson...

I think West people had their say and would have left it alone, except for this article.

There is documented evidence of the Crows unreasonable demands and many witnesses that it was the Crows request to cut the game short.

As for the article, it is astoundingly wrong in every detail.

The SANFL will rule on the matter and I will guarantee they will rule that the Crows were 100% wrong.

does Mr Rucci still have a gig on any of the radio shows ?

if so West Adelaide should approach that station & asked for a right of reply to this article & get a retraction in the paper, however a retraction in the paper is usually two lines & most people miss it anyway, if he is on a radio station West Adelaide should announce on social media & emails to their members that they've asked to go on & put their side of the story to it & either say it'll be on at the time & date confirmed or it has been denied

He's still on 5AA, whose ratings are on the decline as people tune out in droves.
