An independent review carried out at the request of Collingwood football club management has found that the club is rife with systemic racism. The report was commissioned after many players and staff came forward with complaints of racism. The report was leaked to the media yesterday. Eddie McGuire decided to get ahead of it by holding a press conference where he didn't choose his words too wisely and ended up pissing everyone off.

It's a pretty bad look. We're not exactly talking about isolated incidents here.

Eddie Maguire has traditionally been a man of Teflon, but its hard to see how his position is still tenable.

I'd say he got a tap on the shoulder in the lead up to this finding.

months ago he announced he was grooming the next president to take over. He was gonna be stepping aside. Dunno when though

I'm surprised the Wokeiest Man of the Century, Waleed Aly, hasn't been mentioned in this thread? I saw his interview and he was definitely trying to pacify rather than expose. I'm guessing his enormous wokeness doesn't translate to critiquing his favourite code?
