A community service announcement

… by Ruth Limkin

There’s a very painful scenario playing out in the media at the moment.

I speak of the 17 year old girl releasing photos of naked AFL players online.

It’s painful for the players and their families, particularly if some, such as Nick Riewoldt, have never met her as they claim.

It’s painful for the girl, who is causing long-term emotional and financial damage to herself, and to her reputation.

It’s painful for the relationships between team mates, when a breach of trust such as this occurs.

And so…. a community service announcement for a scandal free 2011.

Avoid taking naked photographs of others.

Avoid leaving these photographs on your computer.

Avoid lending your laptop to unsupervised underage girls.

Thank you and happy 2011.
