Had to read the transcripts as I had a uni lecture tonight so I will be interested to hear more of what happened in the video especially the extended interviews (im nearing my internet cap and can't really afford to download lengthy videos)
The transcripts really make the likes of Tiley, Woodbridge, Wood and Pollard look ridiculous. There's probably a slight bit of bias from the producers (I find it hard to believe that Woodbridge would struggle to name the up and coming Aussie players like they have made out) but nonetheless for the most part it seems spot on and makes for some good reading. They really did do their research well.
Seems to be generating a fair bit of attention in the media already and hopefully it puts the pressure on for something to be done.
I agree , I also hope this make people feel safe to come out and tell their own personal stories of having been through the TA system the past four years,,, eg National Academies and AIS, not only donald there has been a heap of talent wasted. Some of the stories I have heard are pretty harrowing.
I do not get the part about this being based around performance , we have constantly seem W/CS handed out to only those in the system, selections not based on ranking, the age discrimination which is going on, alot more needs to come out before things will change.
There is alot of very scary stuff going on in there thats for sure, Tiley is very calm under pressure and an amazing at throwing out the stats how ever at the end of the day their is a hell of lot that does not add up.
I hope the flood gates open with people speaking up.
This is just scraping the surface on so many issues , I would love to see the books, I mean really where does this money go.
As for Todd naming names that was dreadful. He completely forgot Reid and Kelly .
As for our 1991 year olds none made either AIS , nor the next program up so as far as todd saying every one is covered, thats rubbish....
heaps of holes in all these interviews however it will take a lot of watching to pick them all up.
