So you put young lads into Phnom Penh (and I'm guessing here, don't supervise them properly), one of the flesh pots of Asia, and don't expect them to be tempted?

Who hasn't been there and done that? - Singapore, Saigon and Hong Kong in the old days, Shanghai, Bangkok, Chiang Mai...

Boys will be boys.

At the time they'd have all been on A-League minimum wage which is a touch over $60k. Asia is the only place they could actually live like the pro-footballers they are and they had a night out.

Headline should read "Males in early twenties have a few beers in Asia".

I also read that the ABC started the enquiry “under freedom of information” - they are just looking for it.

Typical ABC "investigative journalism." Then the ABC itself moans like hell when it's investigated itself.

please dont bring politics onto here. What your talking about are two totally separate things. One is boys playing in a team doing stupid shit after they lost. The other is the ABC being raided by the federal police.  Honestly get a grip mate

Actually there was an anonymous complaint which the FFA had to investigate and that was public information. What was not public was what the complaint was about and who it involved so the ABC issued a FOI. This could mean two things: that no other news outlet looks at the FFA or that they couldn't be arsed following it up.

What remains a mystery is the complainant and their motivation.
