Demetriou received threats over James Hird comments
AFL chief Andrew Demetriou has told Neil Mitchell he received threats following inaccurate reports he said James Hird should stand down.
Mr Demetriou slammed the media and said the reporting of his comments made last week on the Neil Mitchell program had been poor.
"I never called for James Hird to stand down,” he said.

"I’ve got nothing to apologise for, in fact I’m really disappointed in some people in the media who decided to stick a microphone under his nose saying 'AFL CEO has called for you to stand down'.”
Last week on the Neil Mitchell program, Andrew Demetriou said standing aside was an option James Hird 'has to consider' following allegations he had been injected with questionable substances by former Essendon sports scientist Stephen Dank.
LISTEN: Neil Mitchell's interview with Andrew Demtriou which sparked the media frenzy:
Mr Demetriou said he hadn’t spoken to James Hird about the comments.
"He fully co-operated with ASADA the other day in a pretty lengthy day of investigation," he said.
"He put out a statement saying he looked forward to telling the truth, which he did in his statement and now the investigation proceeds," he said.
Mr Demetriou said he had received threatening emails from members of the public.
"There have been a number of things that have happened to myself and a couple of others at the AFL, based on some outrage from I suspect Essendon supporters but again that is probably a bi-product of poor reporting," he said.
"People get emotional in this game and they should pull their heads in."
On 3AW Football, Caroline Wilson called Demetriou a political animal and a populist.
