He has been shielded from accountability by the AFL/media mafia. Quite a number of incidents have been made to go away. Caro and KB are key among the Richmond people who have helped in this process. The AFL wants Richmond to have on-field success. They do not want us to. Martin is Martin, guy is a meathead who is used to being a protected species. He’s not going to change just cos he comes to essendon, even if we ask nicely. We move him away from Richmond, away from the team of minders who’ve spent years keeping him out of public trouble? We give a couple of media people who really hate EFC and know all the dirt on Martin motivation to spill it, we deserve everything we get.
Martin is what he is. He’s lived in a bubble that has so far protected him from the consequences of his actions. If he comes to EFC, I suspect he’ll be startled when that bubble pops, and exciting new vistas of opportunity in the licence plate manufacture and orange jumpsuit modelling industries open up to him.
