Bulldog takes fight to Human Rights Commission
Quote:
KATIE Brennan won't pursue a Federal Court challenge to overturn her suspension for the NAB AFLW Grand Final, but the Western Bulldogs' legal team will take the AFL to the Australian Human Rights Commission to contest the ban.

After losing her case at the AFL Appeals Board on Thursday night to have her two-match ban dismissed, the 25-year-old decided that in the best interests of the team, she would not seek Federal Court intervention to attempt to play against Brisbane at Ikon Park on Saturday.

While she won't play in the AFLW decider, Brennan still believes the ruling was unfair and will fight to clear name.

Through her legal team on Friday morning, Brennan filed proceedings with the Australian Human Rights Commission seeking to have her suspension overturned and for the AFL to amend the differences between the AFLW regulations and the AFL regulations to ensure that in future, other women players are not more likely than men to be suspended for identical conduct with identical disciplinary records.

Bulldogs CEO Ameet Bains said the club was fully supportive of the way Brennan had conducted herself through the whole process.

"We are immensely proud of Katie and stand by her. Our team will be doing its best to re-pay her faith in them tomorrow," Bains said.

"We share Katie’s view that her suspension was wrong, and we will fully support her challenging the AFL Rules on the basis of gender discrimination."

Dogs won the flag...then called Brennan up onstage just like Bob in 2016.

Just shoot me now....

Sam Lane just stated the bulldogs have now won 3 premierships. She's lost the @#$%&! plot. Her obsession with AFLW makes me sick

Sam Lane may be obsessed but she has some interesting observations on Carltons AFLW situation.
Apparently the player exit interviews were quite brutal and Keeping didn't last long afterwards.
Players are very disenchanted. No Football manager, other gaps in the system. Sounds like typical old school Carlton. Chase big name players from other clubs and expect that to be the answer to all problems.
Lists have to be finalised I believe by April and we have no coach and no football manager. Quite a number of players wanting out.

Perhaps someone more tech savvy that me (99% of the world population) could get up the interview from prior to the AFLW final but it sounds like a shit fight. Extremely disappointing.

Sounds like a less than professional setup.

What you say Andy McKay ?

Meh, I'd rather we didn't sink bucket loads of money on this when it can be spent on more important things.

Plus anything negative that happens with the W team can impact the club as a whole.

I think we need to invest in it. It will undoubtedly improve through the grassroots.

They need to focus more on player development and performance and less on social causes.

The alarm bells were ringing after R1.

The negative tactics were madness.

From a bang-for-buck point of view only, or for other reasons as well?

I'd like to see a sex scandal, but that's probably just me.

From a football credibility point of view.
