‘Party boy’ De Goey blasted about viral Bali video

A host of former AFL greats have criticized Jordan De Goey after the vision of the Magpies star’s questionable activities sparked a social media storm during a trip to Bali.

In vision obtained by the Herald SunDe Goey was filmed making a series of rude gestures before allegedly attempting to expose a woman’s chest, although it is unknown if the hand seen in the film belonged to the 26-year-old.

The Magpie is no stranger to controversy off the field and has been duly harassed by the AFL media.

Talk about Fox Footy, former St Kilda great Nick Riewoldt lamented De Goey’s choice of ‘indulgence over discipline’, saying his latest incident is indicative of his frustrating career on the pitch.

“I think you always get a pretty good indication of someone’s professionalism and how much they care about their career when you look at the choices they make,” Riewoldt said.

“Every player has the right to go abroad at halftime, but it’s a choice. I think in this case Jordan chose pampering over discipline.

“That’s something all clubs are going to look at … unfortunately it seems to be a pretty regular theme for him, that from a football point of view he prefers pampering over discipline.”

colleague Fox Footy host Garry Lyon was even more damning, notably objecting to De Goey’s alleged harassment.

“That is lawful conduct that is not acceptable in any way, shape or form; publicly taking someone’s top in such an environment,” Lyon said.

“That has to be eradicated and can and should get players in more trouble than in the past.”

De Goey’s trip to Bali during the mid-season farewell to the Magpies was already controversial, with many pundits, including Kane Cornes, adamant the club should not have allowed him to go to the well-known party destination, given his many indiscretions in the past.

De Goey spent a night behind bars in New York late last year after being charged with a bar fight, while being charged with indecent assault in July 2020 over an alleged incident involving a woman in 2015, before being charged in August. was withdrawn last year.

Former Essendon great Matthew Lloyd said that regardless of any wrongdoing, De Goey choosing to act in this way in the public eye was “so stupid”, adding that he “cannot restrain himself”.

“He’s old enough, you can’t tell him not to go, but it’s so foolish that he wouldn’t just hang out with friends in a villa with no phones,” Lloyd said. 3AW on Friday.

“There are people everywhere filming you… he can’t do it himself, he’s just a party animal.”

“His manager and football club would have said ‘go, but take care of yourself’. It is the view of it.

“He would have been told ‘be good, take care of yourself, don’t embarrass yourself, don’t embarrass the club’.”

Even Tony Shaw, captain of the 1990 Collingwood premiership, could not defend De Goey, criticizing him for refusing to learn from his mistakes and suggesting that future indiscretions could cause the Magpies to lose patience with him completely.

“He’s probably not a smart person. I don’t think he’s a smart person,” Shaw continued 3AW.

“It’s not a hanging thing, but he has to understand that there are standards as a person, not as a footballer, that you apply everywhere in public.

“While he was there, suppose if he got in trouble again and he was charged – criminally charged – I would fire him on the spot. I’d fire him on the spot, or have him never play for Collingwood again, and I’d have him on the trade.

‘Would someone else fall into him? I’m not sure… if he says… ‘well, I didn’t think I was doing anything wrong,’ then you have to start raising him again.”

The most damning review came from Herald Sun head football writer Mark Robinson, who described De Goey as ‘the dumbest player of his generation’.

“Other players have made mistakes, but this guy could represent Australia if we had the dumb games,” Robinson wrote.

“That may sound harsh, but all Collingwood wants, and what all football fans want, is for De Goey to give himself the best chance to get the best out of himself.

“Bali can be a temptress, but De Goey needed to know that his behavior in the Aussie beloved enclave would be observed.

“And if he didn’t know that, his keepers had to warn him not to be stupid.”

However, De Goey was defended by former Magpies great and 2011 Brownlow medalist Dane Swan.

“Get off the plane and somehow the past hour is written in stone that AFL players are not allowed to enjoy, laugh or have fun in the middle of the season [sic] breaks,” Swan posted on Twitter.

“Fk me.”

According to Swan, the only lesson that De Goey must learn is to ensure that his behavior is not filmed in the future.

The club has yet to determine whether De Goey will receive a sanction for the incidents. The Magpies’ next game is against GWS in Round 15.
