West Coast continued - Rant II

In a brief follow up to last week’s rant regarding the West Coast Eagles palaver, AFL CEO Andrew Demetriou made further comment on the weekend :
“I think it would be fair to say that the community has every right to be disappointed in some things that have occurred this year, particularly that relate to the West Coast Eagles Football Club. This week’s incidents certainly don’t do any good for the game whatsoever. We have a respect and responsibility policy (towards women) and [we need] players to understand that any comments that are offensive to women are not acceptable. Sledging has no place on our football field. Demeaning women is obscene and we’ve stamped out racial vilification.”
