This will just be prefaced with an introduction to the alleged incident that occurred – but it is believed that on ANZAC Day, Michael Jennings consumed an alcoholic beverage, despite not being allowed to do so, under advisement from the Panthers board and General Manager Phil Gould.
This in turn, is Phil Gould’s statement on the matter:
â€œContrary to some media reports, there has never been any suggestion of the Panthers Board needing to meet to discuss the future of Michael Jennings.â€
â€œI met with Michael and his manager last week to remind him of certain obligations under his contract, and his need for responsibility in adhering to those requirements. The matter in question did not require any action from the club at this time.â€
â€œBoth Michael and his manager appreciated the timing of the conversation and the matter ended with that meeting.â€
