Good evening Stuart,
As a Bulldogs fan, the Ryan Tandy situation is very simple and quite painful for me. A player’s loyalty must be to their club at all times, and when a player bets on a game, they are splitting their loyalty between the club and their private profit which is entirely unacceptable, even if the bet is on their own team, as even a bet on their own team can affect their judgement on the field.
Ryan is a valuable player, but given his refusal to answer a simple question which is directly relevant to his loyalty, he has to go and the management of the Bulldogs have my full support in this difficult decision.
I hope that you have a good weekend.
Regards, Samuel Gordon-Stewart Canberra
