AFL satisfied with McGuire apology

The AFL had no choice but to call out Eddie McGuire and Triple M’s comments about journalist Caroline Wilson, according to the league’s CEO Gillon McLachlan.

He also said it was a concern it had taken a week for the comments to be called out as encouraging domestic violence, for which McGuire apologised on Monday morning.

“It’s not good enough, we can’t say that we as an industry have a commitment to making change if we don’t step up and call it out,” McLachlan said.

McLachlan said he felt McGuire’s eventual apology was “legitimate and acceptable”.
