It is going to come to point where clubs wlll just put a line through indigenous players unless they have a squeaky clean history
Squeaky clean just means a person hides their mistakes & flaws better, there is a difference between minor non violent offenses and violent crimes.
I don't think the current headlines with a select few Indigenous players over the last few years will change clubs attitude towards recruiting.
The smarter clubs will continue to assess individuals personalities and temperament whether they be non indigenous or indigenous,
Freo took a gamble as they were desperate for a forward.
Plenty of white guys flower up too, just look at Cousins and some of those West Coast boys.
shower, if any of us had done the things Cousins has we'd be serving a few years and be lucky not to have been shot while in the act of or charged with some kind of bullshower terrorism offense for breaking into a military facility while high as a kite.
