Barassi, dumbarse or plonker?

I wonder whether the ludicrous Melbourne press coverage of a 72 Year Old Ron Barassi making a dickhead of himself contributed to Operation Overkill here in Perth. It’s worth seeing the footage of old Ron getting a kicking to make you realise that you can get to 72 years old without becoming smart enough to not get involved with someone else’s street fight. And yes, despite being on medication he’d do it again! He’s lucky the woman didn’t turn on him as well. That’s what usually happens to those who dumb enough to get involved in other people’s fights.

The whole incident has blown up into a “Take back our streets” campaign. Even Molly Meldrum wants the streets back. Really! Molly! And Barassi looks like even more of a plonker when we find out that the women started the whole thing, and decided to escalate it instead of driving off when it turned nasty.

Barassi, who was dining with friends including yachting great John Bertrand, leapt from his table to help as stunned revellers looked on… The football great and good Samaritan has been praised for coming to a woman’s aid after a New Year’s Eve scuffle, but told 3AW this morning he only did what he hoped anyone else would. (Herald Sun).

So the subtext to all this is what a yellow bellied pussy Bertrand is? Now I get it.  Next time Ron, throw  Bertrand’s Sea Breeze over the fight and call the police.  Now thanks to you, Perth cops are having delusions of granduer. Apparently everyone will have to go past metal detectors and drug dogs to get into Northbridge. Thanks Ron. Thanks a lot.

    I wonder if Dr Karl is also influenced by the listeners of Curtin FM where he is a guest presenter and plays amongst the Perry Comos etc Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin songs, plus Paul Murray’s favourite – Abba :-)

    Alas, although a juvenile was one of those charged, it wasn’t Corey as I believe he doesn’t live in south Melbourne.

    TWO people, including a 15-year-old girl, have been arrested over the bashing of AFL legend Ron Barassi on New Year’s Day.

    “I am very happy about that . . . that is what we have a police force for, that is why we have a thing called law and order,” Barassi told AAP.

    Police said they had taken a 25-year-old South Melbourne man into custody at St Kilda police station about 10am (AEDT).

    They later said the teenager, from a different South Melbourne address, had also been arrested and was in custody
