Selwood slut jibe costs Des six

I've seen it all now in the West Coast shame file.

First we had Michael 'Charlie' Gardiner... enough said.

Then came a bare chested Benny Cousins running away from his abandoned vehicle, falling asleep legless in a Melbourne street, then inevitably packing his bags for an Arizona rehab clinic - paid for by the West Coast Eagles Football Club.

Not to be outdone, enter Daniel Kerr as he tried to spear a cab driver with his own car arial after snapping it off in some kind of monkey-boy hallucinogenic rage. Then two weeks later he's revealed on tape as having purchased Special K from a drug dealer with a penchant for full forward's gloves. Assault charges in 2006, two.

Don't forget Flatline Fletcher's near death experience in the US! One too many middies of VB we're led to believe...

And taking the spotlight off that nasty drug situation onto more salubrious issues, we have Adam Selwood allegedly telling Fremantle player Des Headland that his daughter - SIX YEAR OLD DAUGHTER - is a slut.

Like any good father would, Des allegedly took a swing at Selwood and threatened to kill him if he ever said it again. That alleged strike - which umpires now contest happened twice - looks set to put Des out of the game for up to six weeks.

To rub salt into what is developing into a horrible festering wound, Des also got fined $800 for wrestling Selwood. Apparently Selwood just lay there and let himself be wrestled because he hasn't been fined at all.

I hear that Fremantle will contest the charge and it would appear that Des is intent on telling the world exactly what Selwood said that made him want to cave his skull in. I say the club should back him all the way and if his charges aren't reduced significantly, or dropped altogether, further action should be taken.

Quite frankly, while I have no qualms about a good sledge, to tell a father that his six-year-old girl is engaged in frequent sexual acts is a disgrace - far worse that punching a player in the testicles, but there's another low act that Danny Kerr can tell you all about.

If what Selwood reportedly said is indeed the case, he should be disgusted with himself. But then again, it was probably a club tactic all along and he and his teammates are no doubt chuckling about the result right now nad wishing themselves a "fucking good season".

Thank-god you have cleared it up for me, I was completly confused as to what happened. However with your clear, concise and un-biased infomation I have now seen the light.

P.S. (in the imortal words of Borat)
... NOT!

Cookster said...

Look out anonymous or I'll sick the blogger sherrif onto you.

C'mon! Make yourself known!

P.S - apart from my last paragraph, tell me what I've said that is either untrue or hasn't been alleged?

dave said...

should we be at all surprised that the sort of scum who play for the weagles would sink so low? or that the sort of people who would defend them hide behind anonymity??

You are quite right. It all has been alleged. But you are the propogator of gossip without actual or factual knowledge to further your thirst for a slur on the Eagles. I support the Dockers but people like yourself who indulge in petty and childish defamation without benefit of evidence disgust me.

Cookster said...

Hey it's another gutless, anonymous slime supporter and this one's pretending to be an aggreived Dockers supporter!

So anonymous, what gossip or slander have I propogated that isn't already in the public arena?

You're a Dockers supporter, yet you don't believe what Des Headland is saying? You think he made it up or misheard poor innocent Adam?

Re-read my post you spineless twit - I don't need to make up slurs against the Slime, they do well enough on their own!

As for your coach, smiling and smirking about the issue on C7 is further evidence that while your club is performing well on field, inside it's rotten to the core.

Nasty little Bitch aren't you!

Wow, thankfully Perth has you to lead the moral police. I am so happy Fremantle Dockers have so many angels playing for them. Why resort to such a nasty sledge when you can do it like Josh Carr and Ryan Crowley who only make fun of the players shoe size. No doubt the MRP is leading the charge in the anti docker conspiricy and only you can fight the good fight. We all know Fremantle players have no aggression problem on and off the field so ther must be some reason for the striking and gouging they do. I wonder what Kayne Pettifer and Simon Godfrey said about Headland's daughter last year when he was convicted of striking them? He wouldn't hit them for no reason either.

Selwood should get the same number of weeks as Headland if what he is meant of said he said.

Hey Cookster! So woosha should automatically believe Des then should he. You just said to someone that they can't be a docker supporter because they didn't believe Des now you are saying that Woosha should believe Des as well?? Get over yourself mate, it is 1 footballers word against another and I am not going to go believe one guy over the other because he got his 'story' out first!
They are alleged comments and I shall treat them that way until I get both sides. Dockers SUCK!!

Mark Edwards said...

Well written Cookster,
John Worsfold a leader? of what? a bunch of criminals?

John Worsfold is in deep deep denial, as are the 60 year old grandmothers who ring up 6pr urging the sycophantic radio hosts to get off the Eagles backs. Read the Eastern states newspapers you idiots, and see what the rest of the world things of your precious eagles.

Cookster said...

Hey Andrew, what did Sam Mitchell do to deserve a punch in the nuts from Kerr, or the taxi driver for that matter?

Mark's correct, go and read what Greg Baum at The Age has to say instead of cosying up with the likes of Howard Sattler.

I don't believe Selwood would of made the comment if he knew the tatt was of a 6 year girl, Its just too low! Stop crying, your 3 zip, get over it, Bitch!

bill said...

If Selwood did call it's obviously not true. Headland overreacted becuase he is an idiot, and now he's trying to get off. Headland should have sucked it up and called Selwood a c*nt and got on his own game.

Andrew said...

Now you compare Headland to Kerr. Good to see now you agree Fremantle are a bunch of thugs as well. While we are at it what did Greg Broughton say in Claremont earlir this year to deserve a beating? I love fans of both Eagles and Dockers. Both think they have little angels while the other team is pure evil when they are both as bad as each other. If I was you I would be focussed on whats wrong with my team instead of calling the other teams names. But keep up the bizzaro world Sattler propaganda, it makes for the best comedy site in Perth.

2BarRiff said...

I can't agree with most of the over-reactions but really, the Dockers have had 3 shitty games with a lot of crap decisions on and off the field to contend with.

Having the Eagles, despite all their (ahem alleged) dodgyness, 3 up must be really galling.

For that reason, I don't begrudge them their reactions.

Now can't we get back to hating Collingwood now?

Anonymous said...

Let me tell you if what that sick fuck has said to Des Headland is true then they should rub him out for the season and hold the whole of that club accountable.
We are hearing that Worsfold has said anything goes on the footy field but he did not say what has been mentioned.
I am that fucking wild about this that I am going to give following anyone away if this is what it has now come to.
On the radio here today they said he has not commited any crime.
Fuck me, if what he has alleged to have said is not a crime then leave me out.
Must go before I put my fist through the radio.

dave said...

well, the weagles supporters show their true colours. one of their golden boys tells a bloke that his six year old daughter is a slut and that he's f*cked her and rather than admitting it's well out of order they defend the gutless bastard. good work boys.. it must be great living in a moral vacuum

Andrew said...

Yeh well done Dave. What is worse, defending someone who says words or defending someone who assaults someone? Not just Headland on the field but also another star off it. God all of you in the West are idiots. Doesn't matter though, if I was a Fremantle fan I would be angry Headland is available for the next 6 weeks.

Cookster said...

Dave, it would appear the AFL didn't know what to do with this one, so they let both players off and the ball went through to the keeper.

I would encourage Selwood to take this to court, where no one has an interest in protecting the integrity of the AFL and the issue will be investigated properly.

If it's a case of one man's word against another, then the tribunal's decision has branded Headland as a liar.

I think we all deserve to know what was said and how Des could possibly have misheard the comment.

And why, after talking with Bell and realising what had transpired, did Selwood continue to bait Headland?

On top of all that, how about that moronic little thug Chick lying to the umpires to have Carr charged! I give Chick about three months before he falls foul of society, but then the West Coast don't appear to be concerned about playing by the rules, just so long as they win.

Oh and Andrew, go away and play with your slime mates - grow a brain.

I am fed up with the foul play and corruption in Perth.

The derby was a disgrace it was painful seeing the umps making poor decisions in favour of the eagles.

Perth is a wanna be city which thrives on a win and the recent drug allegations created a foul cloud over the winners circle so a win for the eagles made them heroes again.

Ps anonymous I have proof but its not worth a bullet in the back. You know Gardners godfather is Mr McCante.

Scott said...

You could safely say that a tattoo on any man's arm is of either his wife/partner or one of his children. Selwood wasn't stupid, he knew who he was calling a slut. He should of gone down.

But what about Farmer? Seems their all feral in WA.

Andrew said...

No story on Jeffery this week? Must be a media beat up then. I mean no Fremantle player can be a thug off the field. When I suggested it to you I was told to grow a brain, now who needs to open their eyes and see all footballers in WA have egos that are out of control.
