AFL Photo Scandal on FaceBook

AFL Photo Scandal on FaceBook - AFL St Kilda captain Nick Riewoldt says he is shocked and hurt that a photo of him naked, taken by a teammate in Miami, has appeared on Facebook.

Riewoldt told a press conference in Melbourne he did not know the teenager who posted the photo of him and fellow players Zac Dawson and Nick Dal Santo on the internet, and found her action incomprehensible and distressing.

The Federal Court yesterday issued an order restraining the unnamed teenager from posting photos on Facebook until a second hearing on December 23.

However she said today she would post more photos once she opens a new Facebook page.

“Yeah definitely, once I make a new Facebook page ... who's going to stop me?” she told ABC radio.

Riewoldt said the photo was taken by teammate Sam Gilbert as Riewoldt got out of bed while on holidays in Miami 12 months ago.

Riewoldt said he had asked Gilbert to delete the photograph and was disappointed he hadn’t.

The photo remained on Gilbert's computer but eventually was posted on a 17-year-old girl's Facebook page.

St Kilda says the photos were removed from Gilbert's computer without his permission.

“If I'd done something wrong I'd be happy to cop that but I've done nothing wrong,” Riewoldt said.

“For the record I have never met the person who published the photograph on Facebook or who owns the Facebook site.

“That a person I have no association with has sought to impugn me is the cause of great distress to myself, my girlfriend, my family and my friends.

“Given that I had absolutely no association with the person at any point, I am at a loss to understand what their motivation could be.”

The naked photos have gone viral after Facebook reportedly shut down several pages on which the images were posted.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
