Apparently TheHag got it arse about & incerrekt again in her zeal to denigrate the club.
I've not read or heard about it ... but Gen Little did apparently, & was none too happy ....
Little responds to article in The Age

In response to an article written by Caroline Wilson in The Age newspaper today,
Essendon Chairman Paul Little has made the following statement.
â€œThe article suggests the EFC paid $25,000 towards Mark Thompson‘s AFL fine, when the Club had consistently said it would not pay the fine,â€ Little said
â€œThis assertion is wrong. The truth is that the EFC contributed nothing towards Mark‘s $30,000 fine."
â€œThe article also suggests Mark Thompson was sacked. This assertion is also wrong. The club and Mark held many discussions about a role next year but were unable to reach a position that would satisfy both parties.â€
â€œWe were very clear that any newly created role needed to have purpose for Mark and add meaningful value to our football club. Our discussions with Mark were held professionally and respectfullyâ€
â€œMark is a much loved and respected Essendon person.
He will always be welcome at the Essendon Football Club."
