    One woman dies in this country EVERY week from domestic violence. Statistics tell us that it is rarely, if ever, the first attack.

    Those who are suggesting that this alleged incident is low on the scale or might have been provoked or whatever other excuse is being made to move the boundary of acceptability, should be very aware of this reality which has zero to do with supporting a football team.

      The court hearing next week will likely be a mention to set down dates for the police to serve the brief of evidence and for the matter to be next heard in court. Any guilty / not guilty plea will not be made until the defendant has had a chance to properly consider the Crown’s case against him. So this will drag on for a few months yet.

        I recall witnesses also said there was a non existent underground carpark in Brett’s case.

        Witness statements need to be tested in court.

        However if the case is uncontested that Dylan has in fact assaulted his partner then I think manly should sack him.

        You can plead guilty at a mention.

          Actually I think if he pleads no contest Trent Barrett comes in as his "defence" lawyer.



          Too soon?

            I think they are very different situations, though I agree with the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. Here we have the allegations/ charges stemming from a victim who is married to the alleged perpetrator. There are also alleged witnesses. Based on Lyal' s press release statement this morning where his primary message and focus was on the welfare of Dylan's wife (as it should) and at the same time acknowledging Dylan's possible anger issues, it seems more clear cut where this is heading...

            Fonua blake kicked a pregnant woman in the stomach? Why is this vile weed allowed the privilege of playing pro football! He should be in jail. If thats the truth he will be henceforth known as the scumbag.. walker was always a dkhead who punches a door and breaks there hand LOL and gets creamed on field for talking smack then has to sit out for 6 weeks.. i like his ability but the guys a flop of a person. If we still had reserve grader kelly id say sack walker right now but we need him

                No, what I’m saying is, supporting a particular team doesn’t mean you have to ignore/gloss over the behaviour of some people in the team, it doesn’t mean you have to like everyone in the team, and it doesn’t mean you have to put your support behind everyone in the team. Innocent until proven guilty, sure, but I’m just saying I’ve always thought he was a right royal twat, and that opinion doesn’t change no matter what clothes you put on a right royal twat.

                  Walker deserves the right to plead.

                  Until then he can "get his head around it" away from football, and form a defence (or not should he feel so inclined).

                  I hope the club gives him and his partner/child all the due support they need to manage the ramifications of the charges.
                  No winners here, but the Manly Club can show empathy and stewardship in this and positively manage one of their own to a hopefully just and fair outcome.

                  Sad story day.

                        Breaking it down...that’s what a forum is, it’s all about having our opinions and giving them a place to air. But history will (should) have taught us that there is usually no definitive answer to this stuff, we will never know the whole truth of the matter, and will have to rely on stolen snippets, rumours, supposition and the like, then form our opinions around that half-formed ‘truth’. And yet we still know more, find out more, argue our way closer to the truth of it than almost any other forum I know of. It is no wonder that the club has started taking a serious interest in the opinions posted here. ST 4 ever...

                        Edit: On reading this back, I have clearly reached the ‘philosophically drunk” stage of the evening...

                            Should the default position be to not believe what the female in a domestic relationship says happened? No wonder victims often struggle to come forward.

                            She’s got injuries and he’s been charged, so it’s clear she hasn’t said it was just an accident.

                            Zane Musgrove now charged with assaulting a woman. What is it with these ex Souths players?
