SEN radio host Dermott Brereton is being criticised after questioning on air whether gay players in the AFL Women’s have been “grooming” their teammates.
The former Hawthorn star raised the allegations during an interview with AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan on Saturday’s episode of football program Crunch Time.
After commending McLachlan’s response to the highly reported kiss between Adelaide co-captain Erin Phillips and her wife at the AFLW’s end-of-season award ceremony, Brereton continued:
“In that area, I have heard of – and I hope it is not true – but I have heard of situations within that women’s league of grooming. Has that come to your desk? Have you heard about it?”
