Ricky Nixon a no show for work

Embattled AFL player manager Ricky Nixon has failed to show at his workplace, after his assurances it would be business as usual despite the continuing scandal involving a 17-year-old girl.

Staff at Nixon's Flying Start office in Melbourne said their boss would not be returning to work at the Docklands Stadium office on Monday.

The troubled AFL player manager returned on Sunday night from two weeks in the UK, avoiding the scandal surrounding his alleged affair with the 17-year-old girl who released explicit photos of AFL St Kilda players last year.

On the same night, the girl was interviewed on the Nine Network's 60 Minutes program, giving more details of her alleged involvement with Nixon and St Kilda players.

While Nixon reportedly told Fairfax media on Sunday he would be returning to work at the Flying Start office on Monday, staff there have told reporters their boss will not be coming in.

"He definitely won't be coming in," a staff member said.

He said he had spoken to Nixon but there would be no further comment on his whereabouts.

Several other staff members are inside the Flying Start office, where some star AFL players are managed.

The players' association was not immediately available for comment, nor was David Galbally QC, the lawyer investigating the matter on its behalf.
