WHY JEFF "JOFFA" CORFE IS BOYCOTTING AFL GAMES

posted 13 Jun 2019, 23:57 by Happi Mess   [ updated 21 Jun 2019, 09:22 ]



Collingwood super-fan Jeff “Joffa” Corfe won’t be attending AFL games until league CEO Gil McLachlan apologises for the way fans have been treated in recent weeks.

A Richmond cheer squad member has been banned for three games for calling an umpire a “green maggot” while a Carlton supporter was given a warning for labelling an official as a “bald-headed flog”.

Joffa says he’s now unsure of how to behave at the football.

“I’m too scared to stand up,” he told SEN’s Whateley.

“I sit down and listen to the match-day commentary. This has gone too far.

“Who’s filming me? Who’s watching me? Are there integrity officers two rows back?

“This is horrible. This is not football.



“The supporter is the biggest stakeholder of the game and we are being treated like garbage.

“You go into any workplace, any home, any shopping centre and everybody is talking about this right now.”

Joffa says he is boycotting games on behalf of all supporters around the nation.

“I’m sticking up for all my fellow supporters around Australia and I want an apology from Gil because I think we deserve one with the way that we’ve been spoken about, the way that we’ve been portrayed,” he said.

“I’m not going to another game until Gil McLachlan apologises to supporters right across Australia because we are hurting. We are hurting so bad, this is not funny.”
