What happened to presumption of innocence?

Shame on football club management and sponsors of the AFL who frequently ignore totally the presumption of innocence. A most popular athlete was charged and, before he even went to court, he was sacked.

How come Ben Cousins is sacked before a court of law determined the truth of the charges?

The presumption of innocence is a protection afforded to all, rich or poor, popular or unpopular, in a dinkum way – no action should be taken against the person charged in the form of punishment of any kind.
