Latrell and Wighton charged after brawl in Canberra


I tried copying the link to a Fox Sports article that has Latrell Mitchell charged with affray and resist arrest in Canberra and Jack Wighton with affray after a night of boozing to celebrate Wighton 30th.  This happened last night.

            • Nothing Tad, everyone loves you, your still a left wing "nutter".There's plenty out there that wear their heart on their sleeve, nothing wrong with that.....just live with the destinction.I'm sure you would prefer to be a left wing nutter than an arrogant prick! Lol

  • What happened to the NRLs stand down policy ? Does it not apply to all situations ?  Resisting arrest , affray are not a light aqusation.  Yet the NRL dished out a ban to Dylan Brown for someone illegally filming him in a toilet and sharing it online.  

    Guess it pays to be either aboriginal or at least pretend to be an Aboriginal. Have seen players stood down by the NRL for much less.  

    • Attention pops ... exhibit A over here. Thanks for proving my point Wiz.

      • Your point is rubbish as usual.  Show me a white player in the last decade that got arrested , fought with police and the NRL doesn't whack a suspension on them. Till then you're really going to struggle to show us that these clowns haven't been treated favourably due to being indigenous , or in Whightons case a Clayton's Aboriginal. 

    • Wiz, I think the auto stand down policy only comes into effect if the potential sentence is 5 years plus. This is a GBB at worse. Probably a fine and no conviction recorded.

      I've heard that the NRL is waiting until the court outcome.

    • Standdown rule comes into effect with a charge that carries a maximum sentence of 11 years or more.

      Affray carries maximum of 10 years, the other charges are even less.


      I dont think the standdown policy applies in this instance.

      • But combined ?  There's more than the 11 years in potential charges combined. 

  • I wonder if they played the don't you know who I am card when getting kicked out of the club and when police turned up.

    Convenient that the released footage only shows Mitchell once he is on the ground yelling about his shoulder.  I don't care who it is but usually the story is in what isn't said or shown by media.

    Are we to believe 2 star footy players having a wrestle/fight and no one videoed anything until Mitchell was on the ground screaming like a bitch with coppers on him.  The media are controlling the narrative on this with direction from the Rabbits, Raiders, NRL and Aboriginal right groups.

    Why didn't they show where the police threw Mitchell to the ground, was it because he refused to listen to the police, carried on like an idiot and had to be restrained.  Where is the footage that shows it was a friendly wrestle not a fight.  Where is the footage when police arrived and gave move on orders that were ignored?  Where is the rest of the story they refuse to share.


    • fake midget pseudoachondroplasia agreed Fake and don't police wear video cameras now?? 

      • I think you just knocked that for "six" FM, great work and Taddy and Maggie and also for Victor.....take note most of the vitrolic on here is really about Mitchell......then you can ask the question are they playing the man rather than the ball. Why is it that the do gooders automatically defend the guy that needs the least defence, Mitchell is one of the top 3 players in the game a multi millionare player who effectively has got away with blue murder for too long......sorry for using that "blue" word again, the producers of Avatar are no doubt preparing their case!

It is not gossip per say but Ryan Girdler has mentioned that he think Wighton to Parramatta would instantly make us a threat. Well yeah, he is an Origin player, even better at Centre. Only issues are price and compensation. Let's say Wighton wants…

LB replied to Muttman's discussion Who is the worst ref in the NRL?
"Atkins and Klein lose control a lot, Sutton at least looks confident at times. Though i do not think anyone can go as low as Henry Perenara as a ref. He was just inept. Nice guy and tried hard but just wasn't cut out for it."
