Collingwood has also put a deal on hold with a 26-year-old player who is a free agent until the end of the season.

“My actions are below the standards I expect as a person, as an AFL footballer, and on behalf of Collingwood. I trust and confidence in me to make better decisions this year. I worked hard to establish it, and I broke that trust, because of anyone but myself.
“Once again, I apologize for my rude behavior. I understand that there is a lot to be done to disappoint many and rebuild trust.”
His remarks at the age of 26 were in stark contrast to his initial reaction through Instagram lamenting the athlete’s “persecution” by the media.

Collingwood CEO Mark Anderson accused De Goy of acting as a contempt for women on Tuesday. He was particularly disappointed with the vision that De Goy was pulling the woman’s top and almost exposing her breasts.
The Bali incident occurs after De Goy was defeated by Collingwood in October 2021 when he was arrested for a drunken incident at a nightclub in New York.
Anderson said De Goy would speak within a few days, but given that the player is currently on vacation, it was unclear if that would go any further.
AFL said Collingwood “handled the problem properly” and that the league would take no further action against De Goy. However, the league criticized his actions for setting a bad example.
