8. SPOTLIGHT

Last week, Lyon and harassment, and Thompson with drugs.
This week, Lyon and further detail on harassment, and the Joel Wilkinson news.
Joel Wilkinson, former Gold Coast Suns player, takes action against AFL over alleged racial abuse, sexual harassment.
 Shine Lawyers' employment law expert Will Barsby said the AFL had failed in its duty of care and allowed mistreatment of Wilkinson to continue, despite repeated requests for help and support.
"In Australia playing AFL is a full-time job for many young people and like any job there are laws to protect your rights in the workplace," Mr Barsby said.
"The AFL isn't exempt from these laws just because it is a national pastime. Sport is a business, players are employees."

Its not been a good run for Gillon. And he has not been helping himself either.
And good work Joel in shining a light on these issues.

Two coin tosses in the above. How Sydney get a tip against the Hawks HGA is interesting.

Good tipping to you all.
