Hawthorn Ruckman is under investigation
Hawthorn Ruckman, 27, is under investigation by his club’s integrity committee after the anonymous woman released her claims.
The images are believed to be “intimate” and shared on social media. Patton has since closed its social media accounts following the alleged scandal.
“Hawthorn Football Club is aware of allegations on social media regarding Jonathon Patton’s behavior,” the club said in a statement.
“ The allegations concern conduct that is inconsistent with the values and standards of Hawthorn Football Club.
As soon as he found out about this, the club reached out to Patton directly, making it clear that such behavior would not be tolerated.
“ The club takes these allegations seriously and has referred the matter to the Hawthorn Integrity Committee.
“ Hawthorn promotes and advocates equality and respect for all and demands the same behavior from everyone involved in the club. ”
Depending on what is revealed in the internal investigation, the Hawthorn Integrity Committee may impose fines or bans on players.
Patton, the AFL’s first draft pick in 2011, joined the Hawks this season after playing for Great West Sydney from 2012 to 2019.
Due to injuries, he only played six games this year.
On January 4, Richmond Premiers confirmed that head coach Damien Hardwick had a new relationship with a member of the club’s administrative staff.
Hardwick announced that he split from his wife Danielle in late 2020.
The other head coaches Simon Goodwin (Melbourne Demons) and Nathan Buckley (Collingwood Mapgpies) also recently split from their long-term partners.
