    it's worse than that - medical staff aren't actually allowed to tell others of convictions for this sort of shit, even when organising accommodation somewhere like Ronald McDonald house - although they often will say that there is a conviction but they're unable to provide details

    should this convo be moved to a separate thread? avoid tarnishing this competition any more?

    Are you going to ask for a WWCC for everyone that comes through the gates?

    While he was, the ones that tend to get done for abuse not just obtaining CP are the ones most trust worthy, likeable and generally appear normal and confident.

    There’s a certain ex referee who’s a convicted rock spider and is now a referee inspector

    I’ve been involved in three referee branches as an adult, and only Macquarie required me to get a WWCC, and that was only because I was mentoring/assessing (or inspecting in the old terms).

    As I said, I have a WWCC, but to referee with state league I have never had to supply it, nor during my time with Newcastle did I require one.

    It’s not just a players or club volunteers issue, it’s something that, unfortunately, I think everyone has to have. Who’s to say the o/35s or all age players won’t come up against young kids in another team. Same with referees, given how low on numbers we are, how many times do you see adults involved in the young ages to help cover the shortage?

    exactly, and it shouldn't be up to already overextended club admins to have to be cops as well and check up on everyone putting out the cones at training.

    i've had to get a WWCC for volunteer work (i passed btw) but i swear it was one box ticked on one for the year i started and nothings been done since.

    honestly, for things like sporting clubs, the people in and around the club have direct ties to kids in the club so you'd have to assume 99.99% of them are not only good people, but would be very protective of the kids. unfortunately no system would make that number 100%.

    I think a lot of clubs and and associations can learn from this. If it brings about change and makes some people think “hmmm maybe I should get the WWCC on this person” or make it routine, then that’s a positive.

    I’m pretty sure there’s a volunteer version of the WWCC that is free, if just can’t be used for paid employment. But I think it should be able to be used for “community” work like refereeing as it’s rarely somebody’s main income.

    I need one for my job. And I got it about 3 years ago when it first become WWCC instead of a CRC, and I think it lasts 5 years before you need to renew.
    I’m not sure the processes involved if there is a conviction after you attain the WWCC, or if organisations would diligently type in the details to check it all is legit.

    I guess it highlights how easy it could be and how trusting people in the football community are.

    The newysports facebook page has been removed including the original post. Sorry I didn'y save the post or anything.

    A quick summary from what I can remember.

    He had been absent since April-May and was now returning to cover the comp, etc. Admitted he had been in gaol for 90 days. After questioning from people as to why he was in gaol, he admitted that he was in for possession of underage material. Tried to sell it as being on the minor end of the scale and thats why he only did 90days.
    A second post went into more detail where he said he was initially convicted in 2012 when he was 18 and has never been able to apply for a WWCC as he would not get one.

    There was a whole bunch more waffle, excuses, etc but in the end he decided to remove newysports facebook page and discontinue his coverage of the division.

    The page has been deleted.

    It was spread across a couple of post and in the comments section of those post. Ty was arrested back in 2012 when he was 18 for being in possession of Child Pornography, he was sentenced to 150hours community service, 3 years probation and registered as a sex offender. He got arrested back in June this year for what I’m unsure of fully, he was sentenced to 3 months jail.
    In the post and comments he showed little remorse for his actions saying that his offences were in “the lower end” and his crimes were victimless. One of the post he came out as homosexual and it came across as a suicide note.
    He expressed that NewySports was the only thing that he cared about and he hoped that he would be able to continue doing that.

    That’s a basic summary, hope it helps.

    There is a pretty big line. Cross it and you have done the wrong thing and the courts will penalise offenders accordingly.

    The game and himself need to move on in different directions and get on with it.

    True, It's a shame for the division because it was coverage they would never normally receive. However there is no way any sane club would ever go near the bloke with a 10 foot pole.

    Hopefully someone else can step up and provide some level of coverage for the division because NNSW, media, etc show no interest in the division at all.

    Agree completely.

    There was a lady who commented on one of the posts on the weekend offering to cover New FM.

    Think her surname was Llewelyn.

    Hope she does!

    Are you advocating for his death or something? Or just a generalised statement that they are bad and we wish they didn't exist in the first place?
