AUSTRALIAN team chiefs have defended the nation’s athletes over accusations the Commonwealth Games team have turned into “ugly Aussie’’ tourists.

AUSTRALIA’S chef de mission Steve Moneghetti confirms controversial coach Eric Hollingsworth would be sent home immediately after his Sally Pearson tirade.

FRANCOIS Etoundi has been stripped of his accreditation and evicted from the athletes’ village for an altercation with a Welsh athlete.

ERIC Hollingsworth dramatically misread the situation. As a result the last image of him will be rushing out of Hampden Park with his tail between legs.

YOU name it, it’s probably happened in an athletes’ village, including destroyed washing machines, dangerous rooms, police raids and even a sex den.

Seat Saving

Seats must not be saved for latecomers. Attendants are authorised to remove coats, rugs and other paraphernalia used to reserve seats for patrons not in attendance.

Once a seat has been occupied it may, of course, be reserved temporarily while patrons are absent from their seat for reasonable purposes.

It is not practical to have staff on hand in all areas throughout the Reserve to police this regulation, so we ask that you and your guests observe the spirit of fair play.

If you observe any abuse of this regulation, please report the matter to the nearest staff member. Please do not take up the issue yourself.
