    I think they may have realised there was something in us all whinging about getting the lion share of Monday night games

    They're just as fickle as the fans are, wait till we lose another game, they'll be death riding us again.
    The stuff about Brett is to suck up after putting the boot into him 2 years ago aswell

    When the media start routinely describing Stewart's 4 week suspension as "excessive", "inexplicable", "outrageous", "disgraceful", or similar then I'd start to think maybe their was a micrometre of regret or rethinking about the disgraceful treatment he received. 

    If they can routinely label him as "disgraced" for 2 years for nothing more than being falsely accused, and reportedly refused service of alcohol and responsibly catching a cab home - when a repeat DUI perpetrator gets labelled "courageous" and "brave" and gets 0 weeks suspension from Gallop - then they could make an effort to add just a smidgen of balance by calling his 4 week suspension and his vilification "disgraceful" IMO.

    They may also realise there's a defamation case coming their way and are now trying to lick arse.

    Maybe a suck up, but ultimately they are about selling papers.  Its a good story coming back from where he's been, I don't think its meant to stop a lawsuit.  Brett also appears to be talking to the media again and I presume he's just trying to get along with his life now, which is a good thing.

    I agree with you Rex but to be honest I am just grateful that all the bad publicity has stopped and the good publicity has started.
