Transcending the Game: The Human Side of Sport
Huffington Post Sports - almost 2 years
David Packman recounts how a chance meeting ultimately led to a poignant reminder of our own humanity - as two AFL footballers pay homage to a family member. On a sunny midweek morning about eighteen months ago, I sat down alone in a café in Port Melbourne and before long struck up a lively conversation with the person at the table next to me, who introduced herself simply as "Maddie." I can't recall how it came up, but it became clear we had something in common. The odds are something like 1 in 200,000 in my case, but this effervescent young lady and I revealed to each other that we were both managing very rare blood disorders. A lively and at times humorous dialogue followed in which we laughed about many things, including the fact that her blood platelet count was too low and mine too high. Perhaps we could somehow combine them for a perfect count? As she stood to say goodbye it suddenly dawned on me that this was Madeleine Riewoldt. I had read about her condition som ...

  • 2010
    Age 27
    On 24 December 2010 a Federal Court granted a permanent injunction on the images, supporting Riewoldt and Gilbert's statement that the photos had been stolen from Gilbert's laptop computer without consent.
    More Details Hide Details Justice Shane Marshall ordered the images and any others be deleted from the girl's computer, with mediation between her and the St Kilda Football Club scheduled to take place on 28 January 2011.
    On 20 December 2010 a photo with a nude image of Riewoldt was posted on the social networking site Facebook by a 17-year-old girl.
    More Details Hide Details The girl, whose name was initially withheld in the media due to her age, stated that her actions were a result of unfair treatment at the hands of the AFL regarding an incident earlier in the year, in which she claimed she had become pregnant as a result of having sex with two St Kilda players following a school football clinic. Another nude photo, of fellow Saints player Nick Dal Santo, was also posted. In a subsequent press conference Riewoldt claimed to have never met the girl and that the photo had been taken over a year prior, during an end-of-season trip, in Miami, Florida, by teammate Sam Gilbert, and that he had asked Gilbert to immediately delete the photo. Gilbert stated that the photos had been stolen from his own personal computer, describing the incident as a "significant breach of privacy without my knowledge or consent". The girl disputed Gilbert's statement, saying that she had taken the photos and was in possession of at least 19 more images of other AFL players. The girl later admitted this to be a lie, stating that she fabricated this claim of ownership so as not to get into any trouble. She then claimed to have been sent the photos by an unnamed St Kilda player in April of that year.
    During St Kilda's 28 point Round 3 win over Collingwood, on 9 April 2010, Riewoldt experienced a high grade hamstring tear.

    More Details Hide Details This drew controversy as he was then bumped after the injury by Lions players Chris Scott and Mal Michael when it was obvious he was hurt.
