Brennan Stack nominated for The Fronwlow Medal Hall of Fame.

Former AFL player Brennan Stack has been nominated for The Fronwlow Medal Hall of Fame after being charged with brutally assaulting women in a Peth car park.

The Frownlow Medal is awarded to the player whose off-field demeanour 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 competition. NRL player Shaun Kenny-Dowall won the inaugural medal in 2015, while NRL star Jarryd Hayne is the most recent recipient.

The Frownlow Medal Hall of Fame honours former players and players who received media attention in previous seasons, for similarly scandalous behaviour, and its inductees include Ben Cousins and Julian O’Neill.

Horrific CCTV footage appears to show Stack and another man, Shai Martin, allegedly attacking two young women on March 20. The women were left with serious injuries and were taken to hospital, while a third woman was allegedly assaulted during the incident.

According to the CCTV footage, Stack is allegedly shown punching and hitting one of the women until she passes out. Martin then appears to drag one of the women along the ground by her hair, while both men are seen kicking a woman in the head. One of the women attempts to escape by crawling along the ground, but is seen and prevented from escaping. Reports also indicate that the players stomped on the victims’ heads and threw a bottle at one – at times while the women were unconscious.

Footage indicates that the incident ends when the police arrive.

What started the alleged assault?

Apparently an argument over car doors slamming into one another.

The men have been charged with intentionally causing bodily harm. Stack had been a mentor in the AFL community and took up the head coaching role at Nollamara Football Club in 2022, but was removed from the role once news broke of this incident.

The search for Lachie Hunter.

Judges of The Frownlow Medal are frantically searching for AFL player Lachie Hunter so that they can officially serve him with his nomination for the prestigious award. Hunter received his nomination after allegedly smashing into four parked cars while drink driving, and fleeing the scene of the accident.

Police are still investigating the incident to determine Hunter’s guilt or innocence, but the Western Bulldogs Vice-Captain has already had his licence suspended for 12 months, and was fined $1652 for breaching COVID-19 social distancing regulations.

The Frownlow Medal is awarded to the player whose off-field demeanour 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 competition. NRL player Shaun Kenny-Dowall won the inaugural medal in 2015, while NRL player Ben Barba is the most recent recipient.

The Frownlow Medal Hall of Fame honours former players and players who received media attention in previous seasons, for similarly scandalous behaviour, and its inductees include Ben Cousins and Julian O’Neill.

According to reports, Hunter’s SUV was found at the scene of the accident, and alcohol was discovered in the passenger seat. It is believed a friend drove him from the scene of the accident and took him to another house, where he continued drinking. Clearly, Hunter is determined to win The Frownlow Medal in 2020, and he may have a good chance in what could be a quiet year for the award when none of the four codes are able to play for an indefinite period of time.

Hunter will suffer a huge blow to his reputation following this incident, especially after recently being elevated to the position of vice-captain. However, he may suffer greater consequences because one of the cars he allegedly damaged belongs to the parents of his girlfriend. Oooops!

Hunter can now enjoy his self-isolation like many normal people around the world – at home!
