And, there goes 1 chance (and only 1) to have the real story emerge, and have the truly culpable held to account.

We have diverged, Semp. Guess I just like continual disturbance, more than most.

Too much quiet just does me head in. Must be the global imperative - still part of the globe, aren't we? Changing a bit, the globe.


ToT, I think we both know that the likelihood of a Senate committee uncovering anything other than some unclaimed travel expenses is pretty low.

I'm all for disturbance, but I'd rather it have some fighting chance of actually achieving something other than headlines for underperforming pollies.

TMM, we have a way better chance of some action with the inevitable leaks from the disgruntled ...


Didn't take long, eh Semp?


A touch of the Nostradamus about us this week, ToT.

Now, where's Matrix with that popcorn, cause this is going to be a doozy ...


Actually, when one thinks about, what might be an appropriate moment to ask those pollies about that parliamentary enquiry?

Start with the Minister for Health and Sport, GEE! Hunt, perhaps?

And, 'what about that Wallis story, eh Doc Di Natali?'

Mick Gatto confirms he spoke to Essendon during height of doping scandal

Dons wanted Gatto’s help, dad claims
Bombers’ health scam cover-up claim
James Hird: ‘They’re a pack of f...ing lying pr...s’
UNDERWORLD enforcer Mick Gatto has sensationally confirmed he was approached by a senior Essendon figure at the height of the drugs saga to “find out what was going on with it all”.

The Herald Sun has obtained a video of Gatto being interviewed by The Footy Show star Sam Newman at a Lygon St restaurant this afternoon.

“With this one, I did get embroiled in it and I was approached,” Gatto said at Villa Romana.

Pressed by Channel 9’s Sam Newman if he was approached by an official of the Essendon Football Club to help fix the doping mess, Gatto said: “I was. I was. But it wouldn’t be very professional of me to divulge who.

I'm inclined to believe Wallis, given Senator Kimberly Kitching's (Essendon member) attempts a week or two ago, to deflect from tthe Essendon FC and lauch a Senate Enquiry into ASADA & the AFL. You should check out Kitching's dubious history, including her alliance with John Setka (friend of Mick Gatto) and all sorts of corrupt union/ALP spivs. Not to mention findings against her by a Royal Commission and Fair Work Australia.

If Essendon did seek Gatto's services, then any official involved should be jailed and the Essendon FC expelled from the AFL.


Cor Blimey, LL - is Kitching really an E'dope member?

She might just win a most dubious trifecta - E'dope member who plumps for a Senate eqnquiry, at the HSU and close to one Ms K Jackson for quite some time (seminal time, too), and married to Andrew Landeryou.

If you want a kicker, try Andrew Bolt.


I'm pretty sure she is and so is her husband, the notorious Andrew Landeryou (look that grub up if you haven't heard of him). Landeryou is also Kitching's political organ grinder.

Just wanted to jump in to gloat that it is Dean Wallis who is stirring the s...against Essendon. Greatly ironic , because I will never forgive Sheedy for leaving Derek Kickett out of their Garand Final team , when he had played every game that season , in order to fit in Wallis who was nothing but a thug. Speedy wanted his thuggish qualities for the GF, just like his old team had Balme and others to punch their way to a flag. Kickett was my favourite player not playing for the Saints ( he would have fitted in beautifully) and for all Sheedy and Essendon's crap about fostering indigenous talent, he was the one to get the arse . Hypocritical turds. Karma bus has arrived I hope.

The follow on to the reference to The Bolter, as provided to the cohort earlier, looked a lot like this;

“In 2013/2014 News Corp journalist Andrew Bolt was using his TV show pushing for Kimberley Kitching to be preselected for another Senate spot. It was widely rumoured that Kitching and Bolt had an affair when Landeryou fled overseas from Australian authorities in 2004/05. Bolt has never denied the affair and I wrote to him asking questions in 2014 but he never responded.

The affair is about the only thing that would explain why Bolt promotes a fraudster and thief like Kitching. Below is a video where Bolt admitted supporting Kitchings Senate bid in 2013.”

Very ballsy correspondent, the Kangaroo. He’s had more suits thrown at him than the floor of a Peter Jackson fitting room (best I could do at short notice). He’s currently engaged in a war of attrition with the Stokes/Ch7 crew, and he just lurvs Alan Jones.

I quite like his work, TBH."

I've met Shane (Dowling), an interesting fellow and courageous. I know for a fact that he is driving Kerry Stokes nuts and Stokes is determined to annilate him with litigation. Unfortunately for Stokes, Mr Dowling doesn't give a toss even in the face of contempt of court proceedings.

Be careful though, his heart is in the right place, he genuinely believes what he writes, unfortunately Shane's threshold for evidence is quite low. For example, he has pegged just about every Judge in the land as a paedophile. Nonetheless, he is occasionally on the money.

Kitching was never close to Jackson, they were in the same faction of the ALP until Jackson fell out with Bill Shorten. The Bolt-Kitching story is fact, Dowling actually got that story from Jackson. Bolt would lose all control of himself and his penis in Kitching's presence, his drunken boner out of control behaviour witnessed by a few.

You can take this to the Bank. Kitching's request for a Senate Enquiry and today's revelations are directly related.

Yes long day, I meant 'vial'... But 'vile' is mostly the more useful descriptive container here.

Speaking of, was thinking about the counter claim of blackmail against Wallis, and how easily that is avoided (and has been in this saga) by making the exact same demands (pay me or I squeal) through a lawyer and under the guise of a potential court case.

Ex-Bomber's 'late-night threats' part of blackmail probe

Former Essendon premiership player Dean Wallis allegedly made a series of late-night irate and threatening phone calls to senior people within the AFL and Essendon and is now one of the subjects of a blackmail investigation by police.

Wallis, a two-time premiership player, is understood to have called AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan and former Essendon chief executive Ian Robson, making serious allegations and threats.
USELESS FACT: The WADA case against Essendon (in Sydney as well) is exactly 10 years to the day that Australia qualified for the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

EFC Damage Control V2.000


Bombers boss secretly taped meeting in bid to prove blackmail

Michael Warner, Herald Sun
18 minutes ago

BOMBERS boss Xavier Campbell secretly taped a cafe meeting with the father of former team manager John Elliott in a bid to prove the club was being blackmailed.

The Herald Sun can reveal Mr Campbell met John Elliott Sr at the Edward Abbott cafe in Napier St, Strathmore, last December to discuss John Elliott Jr’s redundancy after seven years as a club employee.

Mr Elliott Sr allegedly told Mr Campbell he did not believe his son had been offered enough money in his exit package and threatened to “sling a bit of mud, which will stick” unless it were increased.

In a legal letter sent two days later to Mr Elliott Sr, Bombers lawyer Tony Hargreaves declared: “Having listened to the recording, it is my opinion that you have committed the offence of blackmail … You have, among other things, threatened Mr Campbell that unless the club increases the offer to your son, you will speak to journalists with a view to discrediting Mr Campbell and or the club.

Insurance Companies reject W'Cover claims as a matter of routine, particularly psychological ones. The majority of such decisions are routinely overturned at the Conciliation stage.

Wallis has made a very serious allegation and one would hope that Vic Pol are scrambling officers to talk to Wallis, getting warrants to tap phones etc and basically commencing a big in depth investigfation. By that I mean, not just ring people up and ask them if the allegations are true. That would be a token investigation. If they're not then they are negligent in their duty.

I'm inclined to believe Wallis, given Senator Kimberly Kitching's (Essendon member) attempts a week or two ago, to deflect from tthe Essendon FC and lauch a Senate Enquiry into ASADA & the AFL. You should check out Kitching's dubious history, including her alliance with John Setka (friend of Mick Gatto) and all sorts of corrupt union/ALP spivs. Not to mention findings against her by a Royal Commission and Fair Work Australia.

If Essendon did seek Gatto's services, then any official involved should be jailed and the Essendon FC expelled from the AFL.


Cor Blimey, LL - is Kitching really an E'dope member?

She might just win a most dubious trifecta - E'dope member who plumps for a Senate eqnquiry, at the HSU and close to one Ms K Jackson for quite some time (seminal time, too), and married to Andrew Landeryou.

If you want a kicker, try Andrew Bolt.


I'm pretty sure she is and so is her husband, the notorious Andrew Landeryou (look that grub up if you haven't heard of him). Landeryou is also Kitching's political organ grinder.


Oh, I've heard of Andy, LL.

The follow on to the reference to The Bolter, as provided to the cohort earlier, looked a lot like this;

"The Bolter reference? https://kangaroocourtofaustralia.com/20 ... a-new-low/

“In 2013/2014 News Corp journalist Andrew Bolt was using his TV show pushing for Kimberley Kitching to be preselected for another Senate spot. It was widely rumoured that Kitching and Bolt had an affair when Landeryou fled overseas from Australian authorities in 2004/05. Bolt has never denied the affair and I wrote to him asking questions in 2014 but he never responded.

The affair is about the only thing that would explain why Bolt promotes a fraudster and thief like Kitching. Below is a video where Bolt admitted supporting Kitchings Senate bid in 2013.”

Very ballsy correspondent, the Kangaroo. He’s had more suits thrown at him than the floor of a Peter Jackson fitting room (best I could do at short notice). He’s currently engaged in a war of attrition with the Stokes/Ch7 crew, and he just lurvs Alan Jones.

I quite like his work, TBH."


I've met Shane (Dowling), an interesting fellow and courageous. I know for a fact that he is driving Kerry Stokes nuts and Stokes is determined to annilate him with litigation. Unfortunately for Stokes, Mr Dowling doesn't give a toss even in the face of contempt of court proceedings.

Be careful though, his heart is in the right place, he genuinely believes what he writes, unfortunately Shane's threshold for evidence is quite low. For example, he has pegged just about every Judge in the land as a paedophile. Nonetheless, he is occasionally on the money.

Kitching was never close to Jackson, they were in the same faction of the ALP until Jackson fell out with Bill Shorten. The Bolt-Kitching story is fact, Dowling actually got that story from Jackson. Bolt would lose all control of himself and his penis in Kitching's presence, his drunken boner out of control behaviour witnessed by a few.

You can take this to the Bank. Kitching's request for a Senate Enquiry and today's revelations are directly related.


Always careful, LL. See Mr Dowling's efforts as more interesting and peripheral asides, than useful to the core argument(s).

Bombers boss secretly taped meeting in bid to prove blackmail

Michael Warner, Herald Sun

BOMBERS boss Xavier Campbell secretly taped a cafe meeting with the father of former team manager John Elliott in a bid to prove the club was being blackmailed.

The Herald Sun can reveal Mr Campbell met John Elliott Sr at the Edward Abbott cafe in Napier St, Strathmore, last December to discuss John Elliott Jr’s redundancy after seven years as a club employee.

Mr Elliott Sr allegedly told Mr Campbell he did not believe his son had been offered enough money in his exit package and threatened to “sling a bit of mud, which will stick” unless it were increased.

In a legal letter sent two days later to Mr Elliott Sr, Bombers lawyer Tony Hargreaves declared: “Having listened to the recording, it is my opinion that you have committed the offence of blackmail … You have, among other things, threatened Mr Campbell that unless the club increases the offer to your son, you will speak to journalists with a view to discrediting Mr Campbell and or the club.


That is NOT blackmail.

If Vic Pol have commenced an investigation based on the above, then they're part of the problem.

If that is deemed as blackmail, then just about every person who has negotiated the settlement of a dispute, is guilty of blackmail.
