Collingwood’s Jordan De Goey, Jack Ginnivan and Isaac Quaynor are victims of outrage mob  

When a video of two young AFL players judging women as part of a viral TikTok game hit the news Monday, screams surged through their blood.

Collingwood young gunmen Jack Ginnivan, 19, and Isaac Quaynor, 22, were given the modern day equivalent of a public hanging, without trial, when those who weren’t their target audience caught on.

The only reason it was found was because media scoured social media to see how other Collingwood players had been spending their free time in the wake of the Jordan De Goey Bali scandal.

De Goey – who is said to have reached the maturity of a 50-year-old at age 26 – had made a mortal sin to get caught on social media while on vacation.

To make matters worse for him, he’d partied with a busty blonde who appeared to be nothing short of spanked.

Dead enthusiastic you might imagine.

De Goey’s public skinning was widely justified by a brief example in the video when he appeared to expose that woman’s chest in the nightclub.

Remy Jackson later posted an Instagram story in which she said she was not bothered by De Goey’s behavior.

“Hello everyone, I can’t believe the resistance to Jordy and myself here in Bali… nothing to see here,” she wrote.

Unlike his teammates, De Goey had some form of bad behavior in places of entertainment.

During the off-season last year, he was arrested in the United States while partying in another session captured on video.

In January, he pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree harassment, which is not even considered a crime in the US.

Viral TikTok rating game explained

TikTok’s hugely popular rating game is a hypothetical game between friends and a new take on the superficial rating scales of ages past.

Participants are asked to re-rate a grade out of 10 based on new information.

The rules are simple: ratings on a scale of one to 10 are welcome when combined with a hyper-specific and recognizable rating.

Made especially popular by women on TikTok, the game functions in a similar vein to ‘the ick’, evoking the hyper-specific details that change the appeal from one to the next.

Hundreds of videos fill the tags #ratinggame and #ratingmen on TikTok, each with 1.1 million views and 2.7 million views respectively.

In August, he dropped the sexual assault charge and was fined $2075 after pleading guilty to speeding and texting while standing at traffic lights.

He’s hardly Wayne Carey – who continues to work in the media and preach about others after being convicted of assaulting a woman and the police in two countries.

While ex-footballers who now earn their money with potshots on real footballers pile up, De Goey rightly defended himself.

“I want to openly address the media’s relentless pursuit and persecution of athletes to create an uneducated, biased and misinformed narrative that has gone too far,” he wrote on Instagram before club officials got his ear on it. .

Days later, he was given a $25,000 suspended fine from Collingwood and no doubt handed over a carefully crafted apology from the club in hopes of dispersing the wolves.

A front-page article the next day gushed that Penance had “let all women down.”

Turn the page and there’s the article on media veteran Lisa Wilkinson’s outrageous speech by Logie about Brittany Higgins, who postponed an actual rape trial.

You have to wonder what ‘all women’ disrespected more.

The lightning-fast attacks on Ginnivan and Quaynor were even worse.

On Tuesday morning, the video in which the two appeared on newspapers, television, radio and the internet.

Today, presenter Karl Stefanovic was among those who condemned the players.

“You don’t just represent yourself, but your club and the sport in general,” Stefanovic said.

“What it tells me is that they don’t care, or know that stuff like that is really hurtful.”

Domestic violence ‘dial-a’ quotes have been rekindled to add fuel to the fires of what we believe is Australia’s horror at what these three men had done.

One publication went so far as to roll out former VFL legend Phil Cleary, whose sister Vicki died in 1987 at the hands of her abusive boyfriend.

On the day the couple made the video, more than 60,000 other people had tweeted “She’s a 10.”

On Tuesday afternoon, after being crushed by the “woke brigade” all day, the pair hit TikTok again to apologize.

“Hi guys, I just wanted to jump over here to apologize for the TikTok video,” Quaynor said.

“We made a trend that we didn’t think about before posting and we’re really sorry we made the mistake of joining it and then posting it.”

The reality is that these three are more victims of the angry mob than of crimes against women.

Last month, a federal court ordered Telstra to pay a $50 million fine plus costs for treating Indigenous clients in rural and remote parts of Australia.

In late 2020, the AFL signed a two-year extension with Foxtel and Telstra, which would see the league receive $946 million over the final two years of the broadcast contract.

So where was the AFL’s outrage?

Telstra’s sentence came just 10 weeks after Collingwood was exposed over his ‘Do Better’ report – an independent review that challenged Collingwood to take a leading role in Australian sport by tackling racism.

The AFL has been burying its head in the sand when it comes to truly disgraceful behavior from its title sponsor.

But it’s more than happy to intervene when a footballer threatens his waking brand.

The truth is that De Goey, Ginnivan and Quaynor – just like anyone their age – have lived their lives surrounded by cameras and social media.

De Goey shouldn’t be punished for dancing with willing babes.

He’s an AFL footballer at the top of his game in a world where it’s nearly impossible to hide from the public.

And if it’s feasible, it’s probably no fun for a young guy in the prime of his life.

While Bulldog Bailey Smith took some heat after he was caught using drugs on camera, he appears to have been spared a bigger patch for coming out with claims of ongoing mental health issues.

And he’s a Bulldog, not a Magpie.

This lot should not be banned from social media because in reality it could one day be a source of income for them long after they are done with football.

And they shouldn’t be so easily convicted, vilified, fined, and forced to apologize every time the awake police knocked on them — or their club door.
