UNLOCKED READ: A newsroom owned by the football league it reports on is hopelessly conflicted, as the Mitch Cleary saga shows.
The AFL have reinstated journalist Mitch Cleary, but it seems they have a long running history with trying to control storytelling.
The AFL shouid reverse the decision to stand down Mitch Cleary for posting information that was already in the public domain. I get it, tough year, working tirelessly, decisions on run at 1000 miles an hour, mistakes made. It's a poor decision.
