Hilarious article on the Age site today. (Disclaimer: it’s by SWMNBN, which was not disclosed by the link I clicked on!)
Basically a huge sob story about what a bad year that poor, poor diddums Lethlean has had. Enthusiastically brandishes the worlds smallest violin about how UNFAIR it was that the pies and dogs forced him to go through an actual interview process for the jobs he wanted rather than just worshipfully anointing him. Sympathetically explains that of COURSE his interview presentation was shithouse, he expected the job was his by divine right so why would he bother putting in the effort? Ruthlessly condemns Fark Carlton for (gasp!) having internal politics of their own which led him to not getting the job there. Is shocked by the audacity of EFC actually treating him like any other candidate.
And in a world where every media person is contractually obliged to report on every detail of every fuckup Jake Stringer made in his private life, the champion of righteousness and respect for women in football manages to avoid talking at all about the impact Lethlean’s cheating had on his wife and kids.
And of COURSE SWMNBN came back from semi-retirement to write a puff piece about one of Gil’s mates. Gil has her dancing on his strings so obediently that Pinocchio would be impressed.
