Post subject: Daily Mail outs Jack Watts in text and drugs sagaReply with quote

For those who didn't already know, despite the Australian media only identifying the player as a Port Adelaide player, the Daily Mail in the UK has outed him, while careful to state that it's not proven that he actually sent the texts, although they were sent from his phone.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6306057/Jack-Watts-text-scandal-AFL-star-messages-phone-leaked.html

Herald Sun goes into some detail about the legal situation without naming the player

Quote:
PORT Adelaide will not have the power — by league and player union rules — to sack the AFL player at the centre of allegations of illicit drug use as detailed in leaked sexting messages from several mobile telephones.

This is despite the Power’s longstanding mantra of zero tolerance against all drugs.

The Port Adelaide Football Club and AFL investigations into the allegations against a star player — detailed on social media — remain mired by legal and privacy issues, in particular both the club and league’s right to act on material that might have been stolen.

It is understood the player involved has a clean drug record — and would not be subject to more than rehabilitation if the AFL hits him with one strike if he admits to using an illicit drug in 2017.

The AFL’s illicit drug code with the AFL Players’ Association would not allow Port Adelaide to sack the player at the centre of the league’s growing list of illicit drug use allegations that this week also has included retired Greater Western Sydney ruckman Shane Mumford.



Quote:
The Power — and AFL — is not expected to summon the player, who is on his annual holidays, until it can verify the text messages are genuine. Both also need legal clarity on acting on material if it has been stolen from the player’s private telephone or internet accounts.

Well, there's a tenuous link between this and the Murray/Mumford scenario as they're all theoretically and allegedly drug related.

If the mods move it, they move it, but I wasn't going to plant it in the graveyard to start with
