Who works out the rules for public drunkeness? I don’t get it. It’s perfectly okay for Daniel Johns to slur and stumble around on stage when accepting an award, but it isn’t for a footballer.

Try to imagine a convicted drug dealer, having done his time, then joining Carlton as their best ever goal kicker. Hmmm can you imagine all those goody two shoes…gagging on the thought.
