HEATH Shaw gets BUSTED for betting on a Collingwood game


BREAKING NEWS Heath Shaw got a friend to place bets……..as a result of his conduct he will be suspended for 14 matches and fined $20,000… Cannot play in any games for 8 weeks…What a bloody dickhead, considering his past…..Finals stuffed for him now….Maxwell fined $10,000, reckons he didn’t know the info was to be used to bet with…More later

HEATH Shaw is set to be suspended for betting on a Collingwood game.

Heath Shaw busted betting on own player to kick first goal

The breach relates to Shaw betting on Nick Maxwell kicking the first goal in the Round 9 match against Adelaide. Was backed in from 125-1 to 25-1 raising alarm bells.

Maxwell, known as a defender, started the game in the forward line.

The AFL has called a media conference for 3.45pm.

The league says AFL operations manager Adrian Anderson will detail a decision relating to player rules about anti-gambling.

The league has introduced stringent rules in recent years prohibiting players, club and league officials from punting on matches.

The match was brought to the league’s attention in May after a corporate bookmaker was approached to take bets on the Collingwood skipper kicking the first goal at Etihad Stadium, although there was no suggestion Shaw was involved at the time.

Maxwell was a surprise starter in the forward line, but failed to kick a goal.

The Official AFL Statement on the Matter….

THE AFL has announced it had concluded an investigation into betting on AFL matches or events, in contravention of AFL regulations.

AFL general manager football operations Adrian Anderson said the AFL had conducted an extensive investigation after its routine monitoring of betting markets had shown some unusual activity around a match earlier this season.

The AFL entered into information sharing agreements nearly two years ago with all major bookmakers in Australia, as part of a range of measures to protect the integrity of the sport, and enabling AFL integrity manager Brett Clothier to complete the investigation.

Anderson said the AFL’s rules around gambling on the AFL were completely clear and were central to the integrity of the competition.

“All AFL players, coaches, umpires and officials can be in no doubt that betting on the AFL is prohibited and they can not disclose inside information when it could be used for betting purposes. Serious sanctions will continue to apply,” Anderson said.

Anderson said the following actions had been taken;

Heath Shaw – Collingwood player

In relation to three offences, Collingwood player Heath Shaw has been suspended for 14 matches, with six matches of this sanction suspended. Shaw was also fined $20,000. He will not be able to play at any level until the conclusion of round 24 of the 2011 Toyota AFL Premiership Season.

On 21 May 2011, player Shaw shared $10 in a $20 cash bet with a friend on Nick Maxwell to kick the first goal of the round nine match between Collingwood and the Adelaide Crows, played at Etihad Stadium on Sunday May 22. The bet was placed at odds of $101.

On the same day, Shaw passed on inside information to two people that team mate Nick Maxwell would start the match up forward, instead of his usual role in defence. This information led to the placing of three cash bets totalling $25 on Nick Maxwell to kick the first goal, also at odds of $101.

Maxwell was backed in from $101 to $26 to kick the first goal of the game (He did not kick the first goal of the match).

Anderson said the AFL had completed its interviews with Heath Shaw this week.

While the penalty reflects the serious nature of the offending and the need to safeguard the integrity of the competition, in determining penalty, Anderson said the AFL had also taken into account the following mitigating factors:

  • Shaw’s honesty in admitting these offences at an early opportunity and foregoing his right to a Tribunal hearing
  • Shaw’s contrition
  • The small size of the bets in question
  • The fact that Shaw’s offence did not include any attempt to influence the outcome of the contest

The AFL would like to record Collingwood’s strong co-operation and support of  the investigation.

“The club fully co-operated and supported the investigation and took the matter as seriously as we did, which is very much to their credit,” Anderson said.

Nick Maxwell – Collingwood player

Collingwood player Nick Maxwell has been sanctioned $5000, with a further $5000 suspended for recklessly disclosing inside information, being information that he would start the match as a forward in the round nine match between Collingwood and the Adelaide Crows.

Player Maxwell had discussed this with his family in the lead-up to the match

Maxwell’s actions were reckless in that while he regularly discussed inside information relating to tactics with his family, he admitted never discussing with them the need to keep this information confidential, or the fact that this information should not be used for betting purposes.

The disclosure of the information by Maxwell led to three account bets totalling $85 being placed by his family members on Maxwell to kick the first goal of the match.

While the penalty reflects the serious nature of the offending and the need to safeguard the integrity of the competition, in determining penalty, Mr Anderson said the AFL had also taken into account the following mitigating factors:

  • Maxwells’ honesty in admitting these offences at an early opportunity and foregoing his right to a Tribunal hearing
  • Maxwell’s contrition
  • The fact that Maxwell was not aware and never intended for the information to be used for betting purposes

In determining penalty, Anderson said the AFL had taken into account player Maxwell’s full co-operation.

As per the case with player Shaw, the AFL would like to record Collingwood’s strong co-operation and contribution to the investigation, Anderson said.

Anderson said these offences would never have been detected without the comprehensive measures that were put in place over recent years to protect the integrity of the competition.

While it is disappointing that these offences have occurred, it is fundamentally important that matters such as this are detected and addressed to prevent more serious integrity issues arising.

“I wish to thank AFL integrity manager Brett Clothier and AFL intelligence co-ordinator Abraham Haddad for their thorough and professional investigation into this matter.”

Ricky Nixon-Sex, lies and Video Tape


Ricky Nixon is still living in fantasy land, refusing to be a man and admit his failings, dodging questions, walking away, deflecting blame. Has he forgotten how old he is compared to how old she is. The master negotiator of million dollar contracts, mixing it up in the big tough business work and this teen “Tricked him” into everything did she? Well if that is the case Tricky Dicky Nixon, you are more the fool and she is a genius.

More likely is you were thinking with your dick and have tried ever since to get out of taking any responsibility you loser…

UPDATE 02/05/11

UPDATE 10.40am: DISGRACED AFL player agent Ricky Nixon has inferred he was unwittingly drugged before being filmed in Kim Duthie’s hotel room wearing only his underpants.

In an allegation aired on radio MTR’s Steve Price Breakfast Show, Nixon this morning said he had no idea how he ended up in the teenager’s room near nude.

And the suspended player agent, who declared he would no longer speak about the scandal, confirmed he came close to taking his life while standing on a bridge in London.

Nixon told MTR he didn’t want to spark another police investigation or “witchhunt” but suggested drugs were the reason why he couldn’t explain being in Duthie’s hotel room wearing only underpants. correct, the drugs he snorted

“The answer is still I don’t know,” Nixon told MTR.

But what people don’t know is I was found a few hours after that outside my office at Etihad Stadium some three kilometres from the hotel room in not a great way. drugs do catch up with you “Tricky”

“Let’s just say that there is a good reason why I don’t know what happened.”

He has denied having sex with or taking drugs with the teenager.

Asked by Price whether he thought he unknowingly had a drink spiked or drugs introduced into his system in some other way Nixon said: “All I’ll say is that I’ve always thought you’re a smart bloke, that you’re very good at analysing things and nine times out of 10 you are right in what you say Steve.”

RICKY Nixon has failed to explain why he was in schoolgirl Kim Duthie’s hotel room wearing only a pair of underpants.

The disgraced sports agent instead accused Duthie of “setting him up” and “conning the world” they had sexual relations and that he gave her drugs.

Nixon said Duthie was a member of “Gen-Y who is very tech savvy and who is very good at making up conversations and texts”.

“We are talking about a habitual liar, a habitual liar who strips down to her G-string on Lonsdale street,” he said.

An angry and emotional Nixon struggled to answer many questions put to him tonight by Channel Seven‘s Ross Coulthard. Several times Nixon walked out of the interview or reminded the journalist of legal ramifications.

Asked bluntly of the central allegations, Nixon said – “Let me be very clear, I had no sexual relationship with that girl, I never have at all.”

But Nixon failed to explain why he was in his underpants in a hotel room with Duthie.

“No I can’t (explain it),” he said.

“And no one can provide any evidence to me of sex or drugs. You’ve all been conned.”

Nixon admitted texting Duthie at one stage to tell her he would look at pictures of her in his phone “when I am on top of you” but said the comment was being taken out of context.

He also denied telling her he would share a line of cocaine with her and after one heated exchange with Coulthard said – “I was not using cocaine with this girl.”

Nixon also spoke for the first time about allegations he threatened to kill the girl and her family and of taking his own life while in London because of the pressure.

Denying he threatened to kill Duthie over the allegations and the video footage, Nixon said he told her he may as well driver his car into the Yarra.

Nixon described Duthie as a “habitual liar” when confronted with the claim he had sent Duthie a text saying – “Why did you film? You will have a nice life because it will be a short one. I’m not going to kill you, just your mother, father and little sister. Then you will know what its like to have your life ruined.”

The accusation prompted Nixon to confess you had wanted to kill himself.

“I was in London in total shock in the lowest ebb of my life, wondering what the hell had happened,” he said.

“Have you ever stood on a bridge across the Thames and nearly tried to jump off it? Have you ever done that? Have you ever thought your life was over, Ross?

“Have you ever thought you’re sick and tired of a 17-year-old girl playing with your life, and your family’s life, and your kids life, and your grandmothers life? Would you enjoy that?”

Nixon was banned last month from practising for two months by the AFL Player Association after an investigation he described as “media driven and unlawful.”

“The only person they didn’t speak to was myself,” he said.

“I was under a medical condition in recovery. I wasn’t allowed to speak to the board or given adequate time to do it. It was a witch-hunt, it was media driven and I’m not sure they lawfully had the right to investigate me anyway.”

The fiery television exchange left more questions than answers.

“People forget that the two people standing at the top of the pyramids are her and I. Underneath it are parents, friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, clients, business staff they’re all affected by this. They’re all affected by it and they’re very tired of it.”

Nixon going into rehab-Stands down as manager


As I reported here yesterday afternoon, Ricky Nixon has finally admitted to a drug problem and is going into rehab, standing down from all duties whilst an investigation takes place into his actions…

One day you're going to get with your pants down...

DISGRACED AFL player manager Ricky Nixon is taking an indefinite break to deal with a substance abuse problem in a rehabilitation clinic.

Nixon, who is embroiled in a sex and drugs scandal involving a 17-year-old girl, issued a statement tonight saying:

“After 20 years involvement in player management, I am now taking an indefinite break to deal with a number of personal health issues. It is important for both my own health and wellbeing and that of my family to do so immediately.

“I have returned to Australia having spent the last two weeks overseas, where I had the opportunity to seek help for my personal issues. With the understanding and support of family and close friends, I have decided that I will go to a rehabilitation clinic to seek treatment for a substance problem that has impacted on my life and my decision-making, particularly over the last eight weeks.

“Given recent events and with the encouragement of friends, I believe it is the right time for me to seek help, counselling and appropriate treatment.

“While overseas, I have been in contact with the AFLPA and have stated that I will cooperate fully with the investigation currently being undertaken by David Galbally QC. I stand by my original statement in relation to this matter.

“I am so lucky to have the support of my employees and the players that I manage and while I know this time has not been easy for them I think it is important for both staff and players at Flying Start that I immediately relinquish all responsibilities and activities a player manager would normally undertake.

“I have full faith in the staff at Flying Start to operate as usual without my involvement.

“As someone who has been involved in the football industry for more than 30 years I understand the interest in this story but I do ask for the privacy needed to be able to undertake clinical treatment without the intrusion of the media. I also ask that the media leaves my family, friends, staff and players alone. I know these events have caused them enough distress.

“I would like to thank people for the enormous amount of support I have had both here and overseas. This is a significant challenge and one that I am committed to get through and coming out a better person. I would like to sincerely apologise to everyone for the impact caused by these recent events.”

Nixon to stand down-Going into rehab-Statement issued tonight

STAY TUNED I WILL POST VIDEO FROM TONIGHTS 60 MINUTES SHOW TONIGHT


Ricky hopping into bed way over the on the wall side.Why do that?

One day you're going to get with your pants down...

RICKY Nixon has failed to turn up at work as the scandal surrounding his relationship with a schoolgirl escalated.

The troubled AFL player manager returned last night from two weeks in the UK, avoiding the scandal surrounding his alleged affair with the 17-year-old girl who released explicit photos of AFL St Kilda players last year.

On the same night, the girl was interviewed on the Nine Network’s 60 Minutes program, giving more details of her alleged involvement with Nixon and St Kilda players.

After assurances it would be “business as usual” today despite the continuing scandal, Nixon failed to turn up at work this morning.

Staff at Nixon’s Flying Start office in Melbourne said their boss would not be returning to work at the Docklands Stadium office this morning.

While Nixon reportedly told Fairfax media yesterday he would be returning to work at the Flying Start office today, staff there have told reporters their boss will not be coming in.

He said he had spoken to Nixon but there would be no further comment on his whereabouts.

Also this morning, AFL boss Andrew Demetriou says he was aware the “St Kilda schoolgirl” was probably lying about falling pregnant to Saints star Sam Gilbert.

The Frankston 17-year-old made the stunning admission she fabricated the pregnancy tale to Channel 9 show 60 Minutes, and later apologised to Gilbert.

In an interview this morning, Demetriou revealed he knew the story was likely to be fake but chose not to speak about it publicly.

“I was led to believe through some of our other investigations that that may have been the case,” he told radio station 3AW.

“There have been a number of situations where this girl has said things that have proven to be incorrect. There are many things we could have said, but we’ve chosen out of respect to her welfare not to comment.”

Asked why she lied, the girl told 60 Minutes it was for attention.

“I really can’t answer that,” she said.

“I honestly don’t know why I said it. What can I say, I was 16, um, stupid, immature little teenager.”

The girl, who is now 17, said she only owed Gilbert an apology.

“It was one of the biggest mistakes of my life.

I don’t think I owe anyone an apology other than Sam, so, yeah.”

In an email, sent after the Herald Sun broke the story about their “inappropriate dealings” on February 19, Nixon allegedly talks about reigniting their relationship and prompts her to issue a statement denying they ever had sex.

In it he allegedly tells her to say: “I want to clear the air about what happened that night in my hotel room.

“To put on the record that there was no sex and no drug taking.

When I told people that I’d been having sex with him I never dreamt that it would get the coverage that it has I then put together a video that gives the impression that we had sex and drugs.” The program identified her, but The Advertiser has chosen not to.

In text messages Nixon also allegedly wrote: “We will need to plan our relationship carefully but I will definately (sic) give it a go so long as we dont film or tape each other and u (sic) have amazing sex at least twice a day.”

And: “Your choice if you dont do it not only will there be no future for us but youlll (sic) have 100s of people associated with me who will want revenge on you and that will be with you for the rest of your life.”

Late last night the Herald Sun learned Nixon was vacillating and may not want to step down as a player manager, but would only do so if people close to him believed it to be the best option.

It was reported on Nine News last night Nixon would enter a clinic for professional help for “personal problems” and he planned to stand down.

Nixon has, however, told friends this won’t be the case.

A close associate said last night Nixon had assessed his future while in London and, despite having “ups and downs”, he was in good spirits.

The friend said Nixon had several decisions to make, personally and professionally.

“I know he is looking at all options,” the friend said.

Nixon flew overseas last week as the storm over his “inappropriate dealings” with the girl escalated.

He was set to travel to Ireland to meet business commitments but it is understood he spent most of his fortnight overseas in London.

The girl, who at the weekend was staying at a five-star Melbourne hotel, is not permitted to speak for a week under her contract with Channel 9.

It is understood she was paid a five-figure sum for the interview.

The Herald Sun witnessed phone calls and texts from the powerful player agent to the girl in the days after he was questioned by the newspaper about the nature of relationship with her.

There is a ban in place to stop the teen and Mr Nixon making contact.

Legal experts also say he could face serious charges if he is found to have had a sexual relationship with the teen.

Victoria Police, however, will not reveal whether they will investigate Mr Nixon’s alleged sexual relationship with the girl.

“All matters surrounding Ricky Nixon and a 17-year old Karingal girl are currently under investigation and at this stage Victoria Police has no further comment to make on those matters,” a spokeswoman said.

Barrister David Galbally QC, who is conducting an investigation into Mr Nixon’s conduct on behalf of the AFLPA, wants to interview the 47-year-old this week.

Ricky Nixon crisis a wake-up call to everyone in AFL


Ricky Nixon

SEVERAL weeks ago, I wrote in these pages about the scandal enveloping St Kilda Football Club.

The first person to email me that day was none other than player manager Ricky Nixon, who wanted to defend the 17-year-old girl and the players at the centre of the crisis.

He accused me of taking a cheap shot at the parties involved and of not being in possession of the facts. As it turns out, he was launching the dogged defence after his alleged sexual encounter with the teenager.

The facts as they now read are far more tawdry than anyone could have imagined and place Nixon in a position way beyond mere player manager.

Nixon stands accused today of a liaison with the troubled teenager which involved the 47-year-old going to the girl’s hotel on several occasions.

He denies her claims they had sex, but admits he took alcohol to her room. Several tapes and videos mean Nixon may find his denials fall on deaf ears.

The deeply troubled and troublesome teenager had used her not inconsiderable skills as a social networker to document her alleged affair with Nixon.

She allegedly spent Valentine’s Day with married Nixon and had several other romantic encounters with him.

When it inevitably went pear-shaped, the girl hit Twitter again, claiming Nixon had wronged her and she had photographic evidence of an affair.

“This is it,” she wrote. “It is now officially over. Ultimate payback.”

In coming days, we will see the very public unravelling of a deeply disturbing episode, which should send alarm bells ringing through every professional football organisation and media outlet.

Ricky Nixon has ruled the roost in Melbourne for many years as manager to the AFL‘s biggest stars — including Wayne Carey and Ben Cousins — and creating his own headlines in the process.

As his life unravelled in recent years, with several charges against his name for alcohol-related offences, he remained a powerful player in the AFL.

While commentators and administrators knew he was unstable, the young players he mentors have stuck solid and loyal, refusing to sack him.

This week, many of them, including arguably the game’s biggest star, Nick Riewoldt, will have that loyalty sorely tested as the blowtorch is applied.

Nixon faces severe sanctions from the AFL agents’ association, which may mean he is out of a job by week’s end.

But it’s not just Nixon who will receive a wake-up call when the dust settles on the St Kilda scandal.

The AFL, young players, professional football clubs and media organisations need to review the saga and learn from the mistakes made in recent months.

There is no doubt the teenage girl spelt trouble from the beginning. She wreaked havoc with several young footballers and used social networking to spread her vengeance.

The footballers, by the way, were far from blameless. They should have known better and been counselled.

Instead, denials and protecting of reputations became more important than the fact these young men were dealing with a girl who was under age.

Riewoldt was caught in the middle of it, forced to defend himself when nude photographs of him found their way to Facebook. The game’s best-known face is old enough to know better than be snapped by teammates naked.

St Kilda tried to manage the scandal in-house when the AFL and even the police should have been called in.

Instead of just going away, as everyone had hoped, the girl held all and sundry to ransom for months.

She may finally get some desperately needed psychiatric help.

She has been manipulating all of the parties involved in this scandal, including the media and, more particularly, this newspaper. She has done so by dangling the lure of more pictures and videos.

The AFL is finally involved. So, too, the player agents’ association which will rule on Nixon’s future.

When it is over, the AFL may like to use it as the main reason for introducing rules on players visiting high schools and developing mechanisms for dealing with the power of social networking.

It may also be the wake-up call clubs, players and the AFL needed to curtail the power of player managers, those men dubbed the parasites of sport by the multitudes who have been at the wrong end of dealings with them.

Ricky Nixon had "inappropriate dealings" with Dikileaks girl (Updates)


VIDEO:  Ricky Nixon allegedly in St Kilda Schoolgirl’s hotel room bed

AUDIO: Hughesy and Kate speak to St Kilda schoolgirl about relationship with Ricky Nixon.

AUDIO: Herald Sun editor talks about the videos provided by St Kilda schoolgirl

Updated 7am 22/02/11 Here is the latest though, With Ricky Nixon believed to of fled Australia…This is going to be blown wide open today

DISGRACED player agent Ricky Nixon is believed to have fled Australia.

Collingwood president and Triple M breakfast presenter Eddie McGuire tweeted early this morning about Nixon, who is at the centre of a scandal involving the St Kilda school girl, flying the coop last night.

The tweet said McGuire received an SMS from Nixon, 47, in the departure lounge.

Explosive video and audio recorded by the girl reveal what she claims is Nixon engaging in conduct that could ruin his career.

The Herald Sun can reveal details of recordings which the 17-year-old claims will prove she and Nixon, 47, were in a cocaine-fuelled sexual relationship.

In a video, the girl says to the camera “This is proving that Ricky Nixon is here, just have a look at this”, while a shower can be heard running in the background.

Rifling through the pockets of a pair of jeans on the floor, the girl produces a Blackberry mobile phone displaying Ricky Nixon’s image and name.

The time and date of the phone show as 2.15am on Saturday, February 12.

She takes out a wallet displaying what appears to be Ricky Nixon’s Flying Start and Etihad Stadium pass and credit cards.

The girl scans to a table where there is a pile of white powder which appears to be cocaine with one line next to it.

There is a empty plastic bag on the bench.

After another conversation caught on tape, a man she claims was Ricky Nixon undresses to his underwear and climbs on the bed.

In one phone conversation she claims she recorded of Nixon this month, a man tries to convince her to support him publicly.

Nixon, who is not supposed to contact or see the girl, tried to coach her how to respond to a high-profile journalist writing a critical article about him and his handling of her, she says.

In the phone call, the man the girl claims is Nixon talks about Age journalist Caroline Wilson saying: “She’s writing an article slamming St Kilda about how they’ve handled all this.”

“She’s also going to rip into me about the way I’ve treated you and you know, well, which is ridiculous.

“I’m going to ring her and say, not say anything, but say look, if you’re going to write anything about me, how about you talk to … “

The girl says: “So you want me to stand up for you?”

Male voice: “Well, don’t stand, I don’t want you to go overboard, but just say look, Ricky’s been helping me get myself back together a bit, and, I don’t want to talk about it too much, just sort of say something like that. Could you do that or not?”

She replied: “Yeah, I sort of wanted to say that I hate you though, because I hate you like heaps though, so.”

The man then turned on the charm, she said.

“Don’t say (that) you idiot. I’ll make it up to you tonight baby, all right?

“So, if she rings you, don’t say I’ve put you up to it or anything like that.

“The main thing they’re going to focus on is that I had these photos of you and da de da de da de da. Even if you say Ricky sat down with me and he destroyed those photos and … “

She then tells him he has not deleted photos of her.

“How do you know I haven’t?” the man says, to which she replies: “Because you showed me the other night.”

He follows with a sleazy reply: “Yeah, well, I’ll have another look in my phone tonight, when I’m on top of you … Oh sorry, don’t vomit again.”

After the conversation, a friend with her exclaims: “He’s so ugly … You’re dating the Elephant Man.”

The Herald Sun first became aware of the scandal when the girl contacted the paper on February 13, saying: “Hey AD, I might have a VERY good story for you …?”

At 1.56am on February 15, she texted: “Got a clear facial shot. See me tmrw?”

Then she texted: “He’s sleeping in my bed right now … What time will u be up tmrw?? I think he’s leaving my aprtmt at around 6am??”‘

The Herald Sun then filmed Nixon leaving Causeway 353 hotel, in the CBD – which St Kilda footy club was paying for – at about 7.15am.

The girl claims they have been involved for about a month, including a rendezvous at his holiday house in Point Lonsdale.

Bad blood between Nixon and the girl began before she released the scandalous Saints’ photos that derailed its pre-season.

Nixon took photos of the girl at his office late last year.

During this meeting, Nixon claims she began stripping after arriving in a police uniform and a mini-skirt.

Her version was very different.

In other texts between Nixon and the girl, seen by the Herald Sun, they give each other pet names.

She had him listed as “Jarrad” and “Jarrad Cutie” in her phone and also had him dialled in as “Ricky F…Face Nixon” before their relationship began.

He referred to her as “Reject”.

The vision, along with other videos and audio tapes released to the Herald Sun, could lead to criminal charges being laid against Mr Nixon.

Material obtained from the girl, including an empty packet, were supplied to Victoria Police about midnight on Friday.

A packet given to the Herald Sun has tested positive for cocaine, opiates and amphetamines.

Update 6 6.35pm: Just saw another snippet, motel room (not like Nixon says, was his office) girl in hotel robe, Nixon’s clothes all over floor, she films his clothes, wallet, pics, ID,  in effect proving he is indeed there with her as she states on tape. Stay tuned

The girl at the centre of the latest AFL scandal involving powerful player manager Ricky Nixon scandal has been arrested, Victoria Police say.

Victoria Police did not say why she had been taken into custody, or where she was being held.

Meanwhile, the AFL Players Association will quiz Saints players involved in the nude photo controversy over the Nixon scandal.

Update 4  4.25pm I just saw a section of one of the videos, the girl and nixon both getting into the same bed in a hotel room,… TAKE NOTE, HE GETS INTO BED IN HIS BOXERS ON OPPOSITE SIDE OF BED TO WHERE LIGHT AND BEDSIDE TABLE IS…WHY DO THAT, SOMEONE (WE KNOW WHO) IS JUMPING IN THE OTHER SIDE THAT IS WHY…more to follow

Ricky hopping into bed way over on the wall side. Why do that?

Maybe because he had someone sleeping on her side?



UPDATE 3 2.28pm: FOOTBALL authorities have launched their own investigation into disgraced player manager Ricky Nixon, with a decision on his future expected later this week. Nixon’s future is in the hands of authorities as they launch “inquiries” into his teen scandal.

Today, the AFL player manager vehemently denied using cocaine in a hotel tryst with a 17-year-old girl, who in turn made fresh allegations about the disgraced 47-year-old football identity.

Speaking at a media conference today, AFL Players Association chief Matt Finnis said its player agent accreditation board would conduct its own inquiries into the affair before meeting to determine any further action on Thursday.

“It’s incumbent on us to get to the bottom of this issue, and that’s what we’re doing,” Mr Finnis said.

UPDATE 2 11.20am: RICKY Nixon denies using cocaine in a hotel tryst with a teenager, as she made fresh allegations today. Is it ever going to go away? How stupid is this man?

UPDATE 1 10.45am: 21/02/11

Nixon might need more than a coffee by the time this is all over

DISGRACED player manager Ricky Nixon flew into a rage after the teenage girl he had been seeing refused to delete evidence of their relationship from her mobile phone, she says.

The 17-year-old girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told Nova FM this morning she suffered a black eye after bashing her head on the dashboard of Nixon’s car after he lost his temper.

The girl, who maintains she had a sexual relationship with Nixon, said he became angry when he discovered she hadn’t been deleting intimate text messages between the pair from her phone.

She said he would often send “inappropriate” text messages.

“I was in the car with him and he started getting really angry,” she said this morning.

“He got really really angry and I said ‘don’t you’re scaring me’.

I didn’t have my seatbelt on because I was planning on getting out of the car,” she said.

The girl said Nixon then stopped and she smashed her head on the dashboard.

She also hit back at Nixon’s categorical denial that the pair had sex.

She said the pair’s sexual relationship started in January but that they only had sex “two or three times a week” at that stage.

But she said as the relationship developed “basically every time he would come over we would have sex”.

UPDATE- 9am 21/02/11

LAST week the Herald Sun showed Ricky Nixon video and audio of him in hotel rooms.

If Nixon has nothing to hide — and he has denied he had sex with the “St Kilda Schoolgirl’’– he should consent for the Herald Sun to release the audio and video tapes it has obtained.

The AFL player manager is fighting for his career and the AFLPA will make a decision on whether he is fit to keep his accreditation.

He has just told Triple M, “where is the proof’?’’. Releasing the tapes is the obvious answer.

He has described the girl at the centre of this scandal as vulnerable, so why would his car be outside the hotel all night?

How was the author of this article able to film him leaving the hotel after being told of his presence in her room at 1.56am on February 15 – after spending Valentine’s Day with her?


I am also flabbergasted that there was not a single mention in the coverage on channel 7 on Friday seeing they knew about this story on Tuesday…Are that that desperate that they feared not getting access to his stable of payers if they did? Or was it an AFL directive to shut up?

Bloody wrong on so many different levels.The bloke is nearly 50 for starters…Bags her in the media and he is jumping in the cot with her in the cover of darkness like a typical sleazebag. This is the man parents want to manage their up and coming football stars? I think this tools management and media career are over big time…No wonder he had the likes of Wayne Carey and his antics in his stable. She apparently has video and audio of Nixon as well? What are these people doing. She seriously needs help too, but we all know that…

Ricky Nixon admits he had “inappropriate dealings” with the nude photo scandal girl

THE AFL’s most powerful player manager last night admitted he had “inappropriate dealings” with the girl at the centre of the St Kilda nude photo scandal.

Ricky Nixon – the manager of St Kilda captain Nick Riewoldt, whose naked photograph was posted online by the girl – last night told the Herald Sun he had visited the teenager at her room at the Causeway 353 Hotel in the city on Sunday night and Valentine’s Day this week.

Nixon said he took alcohol to the girl’s room, where she was staying at the Saints’ expense.

AFL player manager Ricky Nixon speaks about the St Kilda nude pictures scandal in December 2010 on Radio 3AW.

He claimed he went to her hotel after receiving phone calls from her.

The 47-year-old has seen the 17-year-old on at least three occasions.

He spoke of his regret and vowed not to see her again.

“In hindsight my dealings with this girl were inapprorpiate and I regret them,” he said.

“I won’t be seeing her again.”

Nixon came into the Herald Sun offices on Thursday to discuss his involvement with the girl.

Revelations that Nixon has been seeing the girl come despite his public comments describing the teenager as vulnerable.

The St Kilda Football Club has agreed to pay accommodation for the girl to bring to an end to the damaging nude photo scandal and help her start to rebuild her life.

Nixon told the Herald Sun he had spoken with the teen’s mother and offered to help.

In a new twist to the scandal that has rocked the club over summer, Nixon went to the City West police station late on Thursday night to make a statement to police.

It is understood he alleged to police that she stole his credit card details to purchase an airfare to New Zealand.

Police confirmed late yesterday they were investigating the matter.

The Herald Sun witnessed Mr Nixon leaving the girl’s hotel on Tuesday at about 7.15am.

The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has provided the Herald Sun with numerous video and audio tapes.

She contacted the Herald Sun on Sunday and later provided the newspaper with the tapes and audio recordings.

The Herald Sun has chosen not to publish the tapes.

AUDIO: Hughesy and Kate speak to St Kilda schoolgirl about relationship with Ricky Nixon.

AUDIO: Herald Sun editor talks about the videos provided by St Kilda schoolgirl

Updated 7am 22/02/11 Here is the latest though, With Ricky Nixon believed to of fled Australia…This is going to be blown wide open today

DISGRACED player agent Ricky Nixon is believed to have fled Australia.

Collingwood president and Triple M breakfast presenter Eddie McGuire tweeted early this morning about Nixon, who is at the centre of a scandal involving the St Kilda school girl, flying the coop last night.

The tweet said McGuire received an SMS from Nixon, 47, in the departure lounge.

Explosive video and audio recorded by the girl reveal what she claims is Nixon engaging in conduct that could ruin his career.

The Herald Sun can reveal details of recordings which the 17-year-old claims will prove she and Nixon, 47, were in a cocaine-fuelled sexual relationship.

In a video, the girl says to the camera “This is proving that Ricky Nixon is here, just have a look at this”, while a shower can be heard running in the background.

Rifling through the pockets of a pair of jeans on the floor, the girl produces a Blackberry mobile phone displaying Ricky Nixon’s image and name.

The time and date of the phone show as 2.15am on Saturday, February 12.

She takes out a wallet displaying what appears to be Ricky Nixon’s Flying Start and Etihad Stadium pass and credit cards.

The girl scans to a table where there is a pile of white powder which appears to be cocaine with one line next to it.

There is a empty plastic bag on the bench.

After another conversation caught on tape, a man she claims was Ricky Nixon undresses to his underwear and climbs on the bed.

In one phone conversation she claims she recorded of Nixon this month, a man tries to convince her to support him publicly.

Nixon, who is not supposed to contact or see the girl, tried to coach her how to respond to a high-profile journalist writing a critical article about him and his handling of her, she says.

In the phone call, the man the girl claims is Nixon talks about Age journalist Caroline Wilson saying: “She’s writing an article slamming St Kilda about how they’ve handled all this.”

“She’s also going to rip into me about the way I’ve treated you and you know, well, which is ridiculous.

“I’m going to ring her and say, not say anything, but say look, if you’re going to write anything about me, how about you talk to … “

The girl says: “So you want me to stand up for you?”

Male voice: “Well, don’t stand, I don’t want you to go overboard, but just say look, Ricky’s been helping me get myself back together a bit, and, I don’t want to talk about it too much, just sort of say something like that. Could you do that or not?”

She replied: “Yeah, I sort of wanted to say that I hate you though, because I hate you like heaps though, so.”

The man then turned on the charm, she said.

“Don’t say (that) you idiot. I’ll make it up to you tonight baby, all right?

“So, if she rings you, don’t say I’ve put you up to it or anything like that.

“The main thing they’re going to focus on is that I had these photos of you and da de da de da de da. Even if you say Ricky sat down with me and he destroyed those photos and … “

She then tells him he has not deleted photos of her.

“How do you know I haven’t?” the man says, to which she replies: “Because you showed me the other night.”

He follows with a sleazy reply: “Yeah, well, I’ll have another look in my phone tonight, when I’m on top of you … Oh sorry, don’t vomit again.”

After the conversation, a friend with her exclaims: “He’s so ugly … You’re dating the Elephant Man.”

The Herald Sun first became aware of the scandal when the girl contacted the paper on February 13, saying: “Hey AD, I might have a VERY good story for you …?”

At 1.56am on February 15, she texted: “Got a clear facial shot. See me tmrw?”

Then she texted: “He’s sleeping in my bed right now … What time will u be up tmrw?? I think he’s leaving my aprtmt at around 6am??”‘

The Herald Sun then filmed Nixon leaving Causeway 353 hotel, in the CBD – which St Kilda footy club was paying for – at about 7.15am.

UPDATE 24/12/10 It has seen bought to my attention that these pics may indeed be of another girl who looks remarkably similar, and are being tossed around to discredit certain people.So for now I have removed the lot, until I can get to the bottom of it. Sorry if you came here to see them.

The girl concerned is quite the attention seeker obviously, but I will let people make up their own minds, but I can see why footballers have apparently been so interested. here are some pics she posted on a public online social site. I have blacked out her face…A lot seem to have been taken by herself. The name in the files is an alias she uses
