    Default Mitchell Pearce...have I missed something?

    136379-mitchell-pearce.jpg

    Everyone of you here knows my feelings exactly regarding alcohol and our drinking Aussie culture. So what I'm about to share with you might come as bit of a shock.

    1. Having a party in Australia is not against the law.
    2. Drinking and getting drunk whilst in that party is not against the law.
    3. Acting a bit silly and saying the wrong thing whilst being drunk is not against the law.
    3. Not hurting anyone is most certainly not against the law.
    4. Complying when asked to leave by the host when drunk is a bit surprising and should be applauded instead.
    5. At what point do we lose our privacy and the freedom to do as we please behind closed doors (as long as no one is being hurt)?
    6. With friends who can't wait to expose your behaviour when you're drunk (and not in public), who needs an enemy?!
    7. So had it not been for mobile phone technology and the ease of which we can capture and expose, none of us would have heard of this, correct?
    8. Is that what a capital society is all about, making money out of someone's misfortune?
    9. Why do we expect perfect or normal behaviour from an intoxicated person as if he was fully sober and in control of all his human faculties?
    10. Am I now suddenly defending the drinking of alcohol and its resulting consequences? No I'm not, however until someone can honestly convince me of the crimes this young (famous) man has committed, I say we're as a society of drinkers are no better or worse than he was on that occasion.

    I welcome your views.

    Your reply is very much appreciated thank you mate. And I'm sure in your line of work (and mine) we've both seen much worse behaviour than was displayed in that video.

    You made the point about the proper image the sport is aiming to portray to the public. Well, that image that the game of football is trying hard to project to the public would be no more than a lie. I say that because footballers do not live in a vacuum that is outside of a normal Aussie society, but rather they live within it. For the game to try and make a separation between the two would be nothing short of being fanciful in the extreme.

    The second point I'd like to make is this: why should the accused cop all the heat and the accuser(or exposer of the act) get away totally free? I could understand and appreciate if the culprit had committed some major crime, however when the crime is no more than a normal act by an intoxicated person, (saying a wrong word or displaying a bad gesture), then the exposer of that person (especially because of his fame) , should be punishable by law. Just because someone is famous, does not give the rest of us a license to abuse their privacy etc. After all, where the game is most interested in their image towards the public, they have gravely forgotten that the player (they're using to push that false image) is no more or less human then the public they're trying so hard to please.

    For me, the player is bigger than the game and not the other way around.

    the major problem the NRL has with how it wants its image to be, is that it is a pretty bogan sport and always will be. so most of this behavior i would say is pretty typical considering the players back grounds, as well as the majority of fans.

    Media always take this bullshit out of hand. Rather than doing reporting on something it is easier to parade some crap around like this. Pretty sure I have seen my mates in worse condition than he was, there is videos of them as well, but no one gives a shit. Chris Gayle was another good example but on a different level all together

    I agree with you Fadi, what did he do even wrong? He was drunk and acting a bit silly like thousands of other people on Australia Day. Like you said he left when asked to. For someone that was really drunk he was pretty good.

    This is such an issue because media outlets paid nearly $100,000 for the video so they are going to beat it up as much as possible.

    With the headlines over the story before I watched the video it sounded like he beat the chick up, raped the dog and then pissed all over the couch.

    Most people that are blind will do anything to stay at a party. I was surprised how quickly and well behaved he left.

    It was like 30 seconds from when asked to leave to when he did. I think he has shown he can behave pretty well pissed as. He didn't punch holes in walls, start smashing shit or fighting people.

    If the same video was posted of a complete nobody doing the EXACT same thing, it wouldnt even rate a mention, noone would be "outraged" and it might be shared by a couple of his mates saying "look at what a dick "blahblah" made out of himself on the weekend"
