This whole JDB debacle is turning more and more into a deadset circus each and every day.
I can't see any other outcome than Greenberg and Beattie stepping down due to gross incompetence....if this shambles continues on current trend and their original ruling is overturned.
How can they be trusted to make sound decisions going forward, when their judgement appears to be so off the mark in this instance??
From what I can ascertain out of today, Greenberg has effectively admitted to making a reactive decision based on the media shit-storm and public furore at the time.
That's genuinely staggering.
It also reeks of an organisation devoid of strong leadership.
The other organisation I'm most disappointed in is the Rugby League Player's Association.
I might have missed it but I genuinely haven't heard boo from them during this whole process and it reminded me of a story I heard earlier in the year regarding the AFL Players Association.
Essentially, at the time, some of the media was calling for immediate suspensions when a player tests positive to drugs, rather than their current system which allows two or three strikes (not sure) before suspending them.
Now bear in mind these are players being actually found guilty of something illegal, as opposed to mere accusations (e.g. JDB)......and the AFL Players Association wouldn't have a bar of it - purely on the basis of player welfare, as opposed to media/public pressure.
Now that's an organisation with strong leadership looking after it's members.
