    Personally a bit sick of hearing about this latest Eddie McGuire scenario.

    I think it was joke that backfired, and now media is making mince meat out of it.
    Also, seems EM has a love/hate relationship with the media and his image in general

    What do you think? or perhaps you don't care, better to think about:)
    McGuire apologises for Wilson drowning comments

    Its a bit of a storm in a teacup.

    It's become a big thing because of the 'link' between the so called 'sexist' remark and domestic violence.
    There might be a link between sexist remarks and domestic violence, but to me, I don't see think EM's remark was sexist. Reading the transcription, I think it sounds more like bullying, given the way EM tries to repeatedly dish up the insults.

    With you there buddy. Haven't watched tv or news in my place ( unless in passing somewhere) for years.
