Adelaide forward Mitch McGovern has taken a stand against tyranny, sensationally quitting the club in solidarity with delisted pair Ben Jarman and Jackson Edwards.
Edwards and Jarman, the first father-son picks that Adelaide has drafted, were stunningly delisted earlier this afternoon after just one and two years on the list respectively.
McGovern was said to be incensed when he heard the news, saying the delistings were more treacherous than Peter Dutton and Tony Abbott’s plot against deposed Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
“If Burton thinks that I’m going to sit down and shut up while my brother are oppressed, he should think again.”
“The war is coming. I’m prepared. Are you?”
McGovern has a history of political activism, having last year sat out the AFL Grand Final as a protest against the ongoing humanitarian crisis on Nauru.
It is understood that the Crows will seek to trade McGovern to Carlton, ensuring that he will never play finals again.
