As far as bad starts to a new job go, this isn’t exactly a world-beater. But it’s still quite the collar-puller.

Even though Leonardis reportedly did not post to either of the offending pages – “Adam Goodes for Flog of the Year” and “Adam Goode’s [sic] for wanker of the year” – it’s still AWKWARD AS SHIT given who’s now signing his cheques.
“We have spoken to Ty and he is really disappointed.”“They were groups he joined in February and he is really apologetic. It is a really good reminder of the pitfalls of social media.”“It is not ideal but he is unbelievably apologetic. He is feeling really bad and it is a conversation we will pick up with him when he arrives. It is a really tangible example of the dangers of social media.”
The situation echoes that of Blaine Boekhorst, who made social media posts last year, blasting Carlton and then-coach Mick Malthouse, calling for him to be sacked. Boekhorst was subsequently drafted by the Blues a short time afterwards, forcing Boekhorst to backpedal on his awkward faux pas, and reportedly earning him the moniker “Tweet” at the club.
