Reports coming out that Jim Stynes has taken a turn for the worse here's hoping he pulls through...

The way he's talking tonight - and he's all over the shop - it sounds like he's saying he said "if we don't sort this situation out soon, we'll only be recruiting Aboriginal players with one white parent".

He said it was a forced hand.

Demetriou said he doesn't care how he defended his comments, it's unacceptable and he had to go.

Rendell has now got a vein popping out of his head.

Gotta feel for him now though, he's talking about all the Aboriginal players/people he's met and how he'd be "mortified" if they thought he was racist and he's breaking up. He's not articulating himself well but I'm prepared to give him some benefit of the doubt.

Just switched on halfway through the show. He's absolutely furious.

It's a really odd situation. Hard to know who to believe.

This is so sad. Jim Stynes was an inspiration in every sense of the word and he carried himself in a superhuman fashion over the last few years. May the big Irishman rest in peace.

Fuck.

he was a fine ruckman, and one of the very few who translated his celebrity into helping others, and he did it with such sincerity and modesty. 45 was way too young for Stynes. Very sad, but one could sense it coming a few months back when he relinquished the presidency. The footage of him winning the '91 Brownlow sums up the bloke. His modest acceptance of the award and his date for the event: his Dad.


Really odd how it was only 6 months previously that his mate and fellow successful Irish "experiment" at the Demons, Sean Wight, also passed away with cancer way too young.

I think the world really got a little darker today.
