Legal wrangle over Sportsbet ad
On Friday Sportsbet was contrite.
But it has been revealed the betting agency tried to fight against Victorian Government demands to get rid of a "grubby" outdoor advertisement.
The rugby ad with the slogan "Rooting for the Wallabies" depicting a wallaby mounting a lion in British colours painted on land near Melbourne Airport is being removed today.
Planning Minister Matthew Guy spanked Sportsbet on the Neil Mitchell program and demanded the ad be "ploughed in" within "four or five hours" on Friday.
A Sportsbet spokesman replied: "If we're told to plough it in, we'll plough it in."
But not before a legal battle, it appears.
Environment Minister Ryan Smith said the removal has taken longer than the government wanted.
"We hoped we could deal with the organisation in good faith," Mr Smith said.
"Unfortunately they got some lawyers involved, which tends to prolong things a little bit.
"But I'm glad to say just a few days later we are in the process of getting rid of it.
"The work to get rid of it started at eight o'clock this morning.
"It was just a very poor judgment in taste and common sense and I've very appalled about it."
LISTEN: Hear Matthew Guy deliver his scathing on-air spanking last week.

Just maybe there are other matters we could be talking about. Such as the new cancer drug that should be on the PBS.titch Wednesday 26 June, 2013 - 8:55 AM
