AFL player Jesse Hogan has changed his name to Adam after
succumbing to temptations of the flesh and earning himself a nomination for The
Frownlow Medal. The Fremantle Dockers player breached COVID-19 quarantine
procedures after inviting a woman to his home upon return from the AFL hub.
Hogan has informed his family, fans, teammates and his
lawyer, that he will now be known as Adam because he was physically incapable
of resisting the seductive charm of an unidentified young woman (known only as

epitomises the values of the modern-day footballer and draws attention to the
status of footballers as role models to young Australians. It covers Australia’s
four major football codes; the National Rugby League (NRL), Australian Football
League (AFL), the A-League (Football) and Rugby Union’s Super Rugby

during the AFL regular season. He now becomes the 31st professional footballer
to earn a Frownlow nomination in 2020 for breaching COVID-19 bio-security
This is not the first time Hogan’s lawyer has had to find an excuse for his
client’s wrong doing. While still known as Jesse, Hogan was dropped from
Fremantle’s first game of the 2019 season for breaking the team’s booze ban. He
arrived at training intoxicated after a night drinking, then a video emerged online of him
stumbling around drunk in his underwear and a Santa suit.
His lawyer’s excuse on that occasion was that Hogan was suffering from
During this most recent incident, Hogan apparently told the woman not to park
in his driveway, in an indication that he knew she should not have been at his
house. He will now be forced to carry out the rest of his quarantine in a
After blaming an attractive young woman for his wrongdoing, Hogan will be
given a copy of Anne Summers’ book ‘Damned Whores and God’s Police’ to help
pass the time, and he has been told that he cannot order apple with his room
