Melbourne’s Glen Waverley Football Club Mad Monday Sex Act shamed the proud AFL club and suburb

It was an act so heinous, so public and so over the top that it will forever be associated not just with the club but with the entire suburb.

Located just down the road from the famous VFL Park in south-east Melbourne, Glen Waverley Football Club had a great 50-year history before a Mad Monday binge made headlines around the world

On Monday, the club’s committee members, who had previously promised a solid public response on how the incident was handled, stuck their heads in the sand in hopes that what happened could be erased from history.

wishful thinking The aftermath of a group of drunk footballers whose lewd antics in a suburban dive bar shocked the world will be felt for years to come.

In the heyday of VFL Park, which hosted its last AFL game in front of 72,130 fans in 1999, such outlandish antics would never have been mentioned outside of club circles.

But in these days of cellphones and social media, what happened between two drunks at the Mountain View Hotel in Glen Waverley quickly went viral.

Guests claimed the team smashed glasses inside and outside the pub, steamed inside, stole drinks from behind the bar and danced on tables.

They further claimed that bathrooms were damaged and covered in vomit and players were insulting other customers.

But what happened next to a pool table that day will put Glen Waverley Football Club on everyone’s list of Mad Monday shame for decades to come.

MAD MONDAY HALL OF SHAME

Former Carlton and Brisbane striker Brendan Fevola strapped on a sex toy and was pictured with it walking through Melbourne’s CBD.

After the 2012 Grand Final, the Canterbury Bulldogs urinated on their home pitch in front of the media before a controversy erupted over obscene comments initially believed to be directed at a female journalist.

Brisbane’s Jason Akermanis was so exhausted after a blowout on Mad Monday that he was too drunk to attend the Brownlow medal count.

Former Central Coast Mariners player Andre Gumprecht offended people when he dressed up as Hitler during a Mad Monday banner in 2008.

Former South Sydney manager Jason Taylor has been decked out by David Fa’alogo after taking offense at a gut stab. Taylor was fired over the incident.

The story continues as a gambler lost a bet against another who was himself forced into a sex act in the pub.

This act, in all its depravity, was caught on video by another team member, whose decision to share the hilarity made the footage go viral within hours.

The winner, dressed in a white captain’s jacket adorned with medals, was filmed with his legs apart and his underwear down while the loser fell to his knees and performed the act.

“Suck it,” a man was heard yelling as another player dressed in convict orange walked in for a better look.

A young player wearing a Geelong sweater also appeared to be enjoying the spectacle.

The 12-second video quickly spread through local grassroots circles and was in the hands of Melbourne journalists the next day.

The story, which first appeared in Melbourne’s Herald Sun, was immediately picked up by national news sites before being shared on world-famous celebrity website TMZ.

It wasn’t long before the New York Post ran the story, as did a number of other news sites scattered across the planet.

Simply typing “Glen Waverley” into Twitter will result in countless tweets relating to the Mountain View club’s twisted antics.

Historically, Glen Waverley Football Club has been considered a club that has produced top AFL talent.

The Pickering brothers, both Justin and Michael, became champion footballers with Richmond.

This year was to herald a new era for the club, with highly decorated VAFA coach Brett Gatehouse at the helm.

While the team didn’t have much to celebrate even after finishing last in Division 3 of the Eastern League and being relegated to Division 4, the aftermath of Mad Monday caused more pain than any losses on the field.

The club’s reputation is in tatters, with dozens of people sinking the boot online.

Cruel rumors circulated over the weekend that at least one of those involved had taken their own life.

Daily Mail Australia can reveal that these rumors are false.

While many with an opinion online shared sordid tales of the filth and depravity of Mad Monday, few, if any, seemed to be happening inside the pub.

Even rugby league star Joel Monaghan, who left the Canberra Raiders after a photo of him “simulating sex with a dog” circulated on social media, had the common sense to keep it at home.

Monash City Council Mayor Stuart James was so outraged by the fallout that he told the Daily Mail Australia on Friday the council had contacted Glen Waverley Football Club to make sure they knew how it felt.

The Council is extremely disappointed and concerned about the incident and finds the behavior totally unacceptable. This has been passed on to the club,” Mr Stuart said.

Despite the club’s claims that a council representative would attend an emergency meeting it called this week to address the incident, Mr Stuart said no council representative had done so.

“We understand that a formal investigation is ongoing and as such it would be inappropriate for us to comment further at this time,” he said.

Club president Matt Hollard told Daily Mail Australia on Monday the team’s behavior threatened to derail the work of the past 20 years building the club.

“As much as I’m worried about the players, I’m the president of the football club – that is, everyone within the club – so my concern is huge and exhausting and we have to do our best to deal with what is a terrible situation,” he said .

Mr. Hollard assured those players, including the player who recorded and shared the video, that they would face the music.

“Some of the implications of their actions are being raised and discussed,” he said.

“There will be penalties. And for us as a club if we’re not careful.”

Mr Holland said the club was deeply concerned for the well-being of everyone involved in the scandal, including staff who had to endure the wild team.

Daily Mail Australia contacted the Mountain View Hotel on Friday but its manager declined to comment.

“It probably did more damage than anything else in the football club’s 50-year history,” said Hollard.

Mr Hollard said the club offered support to the men featured in the video and refuted further reports that one of the men had been fired on the spot by his wife.

“That’s absolutely not true,” he said.

Glen Waverley Football Club said in an earlier statement it would take “immediate action” against the players involved in both the indecent video and the destructive behavior.

“The committee was made aware of an incident that occurred during the postseason celebrations of some of our senior playgroups,” it said.

“Although this took place outside the club and was not a club sanctioned event, we are extremely saddened and disappointed by the behavior of people who should know better.

“The club is taking immediate action to address the serious violation of our culture and values ​​that occurred in this incident.”

Club officials said all players involved would be disciplined, not just the couple who committed the sex act.

“The individuals involved, as well as the broader playgroup, will be both disciplined and educated and, where necessary, counseled in the type of behavior expected of members of our club,” it said.

“As well as the physical and emotional impact this has had on the families, club members, players and wider community affected.”

But how the club sanctioned those involved remains a mystery, at least to the wider community.
