Gold Coast Suns issue apology over leaked footage of coach urinating in public

The Gold Coast Suns have had to put out an apology, after a video of the coach urinating in public was leaked online.

Stuart Dew is filmed urinating outside Shark Bar (The Miami Tavern) around two years ago, but the video has only just been made public.

It’s understood General Manager of Football Jon Haines filmed the video, but a former employee may be responsible for the leak.


The Gold Coast Suns have since issued an apology for the video.

“We apologise for our actions for which there is no excuse and we take full responsibility for our behaviour,” GC SUNS Senior Coach Stuart Dew said.

“The behaviour that took place and the filming and distribution of the footage was not appropriate and we have taken responsibility for what has happened ,” GC SUNS General Manager Football Jon Haines said.

Both Stuart Dew and Jon Haines will personally donate $5000 each to the programs that AFL Cape York house supports including providing educational, employment and training opportunities for young indigenous men from some of Far North Queensland’s most remote communities.
