Amidst all the shit going down
over Captain Ben and Michael Gardiner refusing to say why they hang out with
‘high-profile Northbridge identities” such as John Kizon, the West
reported that former WCE centre half forward Karl Langdon, never renowned for being a particularly bright spark, felt;
“that there was nothing wrong with footballers associating with alleged crime figures and admitted he had had relationships with them during his football career.”
I do hope they were long and fulfilling relationships.
Not having to ever see Karl Langdon around town or in advertisements is one of the many good things about moving to Melbourne.
So, over the last year, or so, we have had; Our captain and star ruckman refuse to cooperate with police questioning over a shooting and stabbing. What are you doing hanging out at Metro City anyway? A star midfielder admitting dependence on prescription painkillers and convicted for falsifying a script. This star midfielder also broke the captain’s arm by chucking him down the stairs at a seedy Perth watering hole (not the same one where people were getting stabbed and shot, but near where a whole bunch of women were abducted). This altercation was following an argument regarding the shagging of the captain’s little sister. Oops. Another midfielder/utility player was cleared of beating the crap out of a bloke at the same pub. Up and coming key position player being involved in a high-speed car chase in his HSV ute (very classy) across Perth, reaching speeds of 135 kph (surely it goes faster than that, Quentin), before crashing it and running away from the accident. I think he got done for drunken driving, resisting arrest and leaving the scene of an accident.
This all makes me proud to be a West Coast
supporter and a Perth western suburbs bogan.
