Wow. No wonder these players keep getting into trouble when they don't have to deal with consequences of their behaviour.

$2,500 fine and no conviction.
I have to wonder how much it cost for the Qld police to investigate and charge Hunt. And why they targeted him.

Cheaper to let the plick go. The courts are a disgrace.

He like all the footballers were picked up in an investigation into a drug distribution network They were mostly picked up on phone taps. None were targeted, they were just customers

Absolutely not. That is a cop out to blame alcohol or drugs for domestic violence issues. The issue is always with the person doing the abuse. It really is that simple. Drugs and booze just provide a convenient way out from taking responsibility for their actions. I drink and I have taken drugs, and I don't commit violent acts

C'mon Subby...get fair dinkum. You seriously cannot be saying that drugs & alcohol are not a major pre-cursor to domestic violence. Forget about all that taking responsibility hogwash...less alcohol & drugs = less domestic violence...full stop. Yet here you are fanning both their use...dirty on anyone trying to limit their abuse. Obtuse to say the least. By the way the new alcohol laws (that you spoke against)are being touted as a howling success in decreasing violence...& hopefully to be expanded.

Do some research Oneone, there is no research out there that connects alcohol and violence. There are numerous alcoholics that don't attack their partners and numerous non drinkers that do attack. Of course sometimes alcohol is present in the situation, but it isn't the reason for the violence. that is simply inaccurate.

Harmichael should have got 12 months. AND a candle lit vigil.
The queue of victims , choking on their methadone wouldn't see things in the same light as most of you lot.

Don't I love the dingbats our Politicians look as Indonesia tell the whole world what children we are.
Get as long as they can of free , worldwide media coverage belittling Australia's judicial System.     Postpone the Cracker night for another month.

Are you John Clark, or Brian Dawe, subby ? That is the bloody silliest thing I have read for years, anyone with half a brain knows that "blues" erupt when the hops have been flowing too freely, I have seen it innumerable times, but if the "study" says not, who am I to disagree ! Tongue

Oh dear, here we go. Those people have a natural disposition to violence, there can be numerous triggers to them turning violent. If its not booze, it might be from gambling, or any number of things. Blaming booze is wrong and isn't tackling the issue at all.
If alcohol was the cause, we would all be violent and that simply isn't the case.

If people really think domestic violence is all about alcohol and drugs, then we really do have a long way to go in understanding a far more complex issue.

Sub...   You should work in an emergency admission area in the Hospital System to change your mind real quick.
Especially in the period that some Dikhead decided the mad drunks were sick, so they took them to Hospital instead of the Police cells.
It was a free for all when closing time of Pubs came along .   Night after night.

Oh I see Subby...so when you see a blue outside a pub at closing time....that had nothing to do with alcohol (or maybe drugs)....it would have happened anyhow. Are you really suggesting that ? And when a bloke comes home full of soup & bashes his missus that would also have happened if he was sober ? Mate on this one you really are off the planet

It is how the perpetrator sees himself and his rights that lead to the violence. If a man abuses his family and also tends to have difficulty in controlling his alcohol consumption, then he needs to recognise that he has 2 separate problems.

Alcohol, and some drugs, are disinhibitors, they cause people to react in ways tney would not when sober, if only because when sober they realise better what the consequences could be, for the "wrong" behaviour.

No, I am not. Your views are totally outdated on this. A guy that comes home and beats up his missus and you are blaming the booze??? You don't think there are much larger issues at play here? Anyone capable of beating up someone drunk is capable of doing it sober in another situation.

Domestic violence is about coercive control. Alcohol and drug use appear to be co-morbidity issues, rather than driving factors.

That is true, but the booze increases the likelihood of a blow-up (not one of macca's) happening. A million women who dreaded the old man coming home drunk can attest to that.
