Mikileaks Is Back In Town

Mick Molloy has proven again he is Melbourne's greatest news breaker.

 

It’s been a HUGE week for Mikileaks with Mick Molloy revealing that Michael Voss had taken up a role at a club in Adelaide.

"Voss will be involved in a major way at a footy club next year.. I’m thinking interstate. Somewhere in Adelaide," Molloy declared hours before it was officially announced.

But the news breaking didn’t stop there.

Mikileaks has also brought a flood of controversy upon Michael Clarke’s wife Kyly after she was forced to quit Dancing With The Stars with a hamstring injury.

Mick was speaking on Triple M with the Australian cricket captain in late September - when he made a ‘gag’ about Kyly pulling a hamstring on the reality show.

"I wish. If she did that she’s be able to one to Dubai with me," Clarke said in response.

"Is this a faux-hammy just so she can go shopping in Dubai and hang out with her husband?!" Eddie McGuire asked after hearing a reply of the audio.

David Cassai's Mother Calls For Tougher Sentences

Caterina Politi spoke with Eddie and Mick on the Hot Breakfast.

 

The mother of one punch victim David Cassai says the sentence handed down to her son’s killer does not reflect the severity of the crime.

Dylan Closter was 18 when he hit David  in an unprovoked attack at Rye in the early hours of December 31, 2012.

Closter was jailed on Thursday for nine years and three months, with a six-year minimum, after he pleaded guilty to manslaughter and affray.

David’s mother Caterina Politi told Triple M’s Hot Breakfast she doesn't believe the sentence was tough enough.

"I am happy we have got a result but it is just so hard to comprehend. The lenient sentence he got. Yeah he has got a young age.. (but) the veracity of the assault, the unprovoked attack,” Caterina said on Triple M.

"If it would of gone to trial and they found him guilty, they would have given him an 11-year sentence and a nine year minimum. So for pleading guilty she gave him a three year discount. That’s a huge discount and that's what I don't understand.”
