'Ill inside': Franchisees' shock as ex-CEO fronts inquiry

'Ill inside': Franchisees' shock as ex-CEO fronts inquiry The former CEO of Retail Food Group, which a number of franchisees have blamed for the collapse of their businesses, has faced a Parliamentary inquiry. Hundreds of Australians, including Robert Verni, have been left ruing the day they bought franchises with Retail Food Group (RFG), which owns brands such as Michael's Patisserie, Brumby's, Gloria Jean's and Donut Kng. "I had to take everything out of our live savings, my in-laws, their accounts, my kids' accounts," Mr Verni told A Current Affair. © Provided by Nine Digital Pty Ltd Former Retail Food Group CEO Tony Alford has faced a grilling in a parliamentary inquiry.

After a life-changing year studying in Canada, coming back home felt like a backward step.

As a sports reporter, you're not expected to be good at sport, or fit for that matter.

Yes, I play social netball and go to an overpriced, inner-city gym, but there's no way I could match it with the brilliant women who play in the AFLW, let alone the blokes.

So when I was asked if I'd like to join the guys at North Melbourne for a pre-season endurance run, you'd think I would have declined, right?

Wrong.

I stupidly put up my hand, and if truth be told, hardly slept a wink before the morning of the yo-yo test.

I won't bore you with the details of how I fared, but let's just say I made a bit of a fool of myself (watch the video above for confirmation).

Facebook considered selling user data to advertisers, which should shock no one For all the chaos and confusion surrounding Facebook over the past several months, one thing that the social media giant had to hang its hat on was that it has never sold user data.

But the hot days are also synonymous with the gruelling pre-season every AFL club puts its players through each year.

In the 1960s it was the great John Kennedy - my grandfather's best friend in fact - who came to Hawthorn and overhauled their fitness regime.

His men, dubbed 'Kennedy's Commandos' ran up sand dunes with bricks in searing heat, pushing their bodies to the limits.

At Princes Park in the 1980s it was Robert Walls who introduced the notorious 100x100 sprints as part of Carlton's pre-season training.

And it seems that brutal regime has rung true with some current players.

While most families are getting stuck into a big breakfast on Christmas day, the Brayshaw brothers (Angus: Melbourne, Andrew; Fremantle, and Hamish; West Coast) compete against each other, running one hundred 100 metre sprints in a local park.

Moore, who's worked with some of the world's greatest athletes including NAB superstar LeBron James, describes the yo-yo as a test of your top end aerobic conditioning

"It starts out easy, it's a bit deceptive and then it gets really hard towards the end," says Moore.

He's right. After a few laps of the yo-yo test I quickly realised I wasn't cut out for this.

Instead, (after I’d given up) I watched from the sidelines as these impressive athletes pushed themselves, both physically and mentally.

So while I may have disgraced myself that morning at Arden Street, I have a new appreciation of what players go through in the lead-up to a season.

And I certainly won't be putting my hand up to join them next year.


Son Surprises Family With Marine Boot Camp Graduation Over the Holidays.
Taylor Rice’s family had no idea he had become a Marine or that he would even be home for the holiday when he walked through the door just as everyone was preparing to have dinner. His mom, Wendi, immediately began sobbing as the rest of their family stood in stunned silence when Rice showed up to his family’s Thanksgiving celebration, clad in his new dress blues. “My mom was in total shock at what she was seeing as I entered the door,” Rice said in an interview with T&T Creative Media. “She immediately cried with joy.
