1 Queenslanders should get a grip on facebook on Wed Apr 03, 2013 5:16 pm


Hear on the grapevine that a few queenslanders have attacked the stawell Gift winner on facebook. Poor form and if culprits can be identified, the VAL should hit them for harassment. This happened in Tassie earlier this year and the TAL sent out a warning.

Slagging off the Stawell Gift winner should be a no-go zone regardless of your allegiance.


TAL WEbsite

Social Media - It has come to the attention of the Council Executive that a number of athletes have found it necessary to publicly air their grievances through avenues such as Facebook. The TAL is affiliated with Athletics Tasmania and as such athletes, coaches and officials are bound by the policies and regulations of Athletics Tasmania.

Therefore athletes should be aware of the below extract from the Athletics Tasmania - Member Protection Policy:

7.7 Anti-Cyber-Bullying Policy
Athletics Tasmania is committed to developing a safe environment where people bound by this Policy act respectfully and positively towards each other in all forms of interaction up to and including internet services such as;
• Email
• Chat Rooms
• Discussion groups
• Instant messaging
• Web pages
• Mobile phone technologies (i.e. SMS)

Those athletes should also make themselves aware of the penalties that may be imposed for such behaviour.
