Spida Everitt inflames the issue




AFL condemns Collingwood's Mad Monday

Hinch wants to name names

UPDATE: Media commentator and former AFL star Peter Everitt has responded to criticism of his tweets by 3AW's Neil Mitchell by implying they've been taken out of context.

This morning, Everitt arguably attacked the alleged victim in the sexual assault case police are investigating which involves a complaint made against at least one Collingwood footballer.

Neil Mitchell told Everit to 'grow up!' after reading the tweet: "Girls!! When will you learn! At 3am when you are blind drunk & you decide to go home with a guy ITS NOT FOR A CUP OF MILO! Allegedly......"

At 3:20pm, Everitt posted five tweets where he accuses Mitchell of taking 'poetic license' in delivering the editorial you can hear in the media player above.

"1 of 5 neil mitchell has taken poetic licence to interpret my words to mean I support matters regarding sexual offences in favour of"

"2/5 the perpertrator. This is so far from the truth it is laughable. I can not and will not ever support female abuse in any manner or form"

"3/5 my comments are solely aimed at warning females of the danger of being drunk or under the influence of drugs. I do not condone any"

"4/5 actions that lead to or may lead to a sexual offence being committed."

"5/5 thank you!"

Even before his five-tweet defence, Everitt posted other tweets since he first came under fire this morning on the 3AW website which in order of appearance said:

"As my tweet states very clearly everything is alleged"

"I never said I support rape infact if u look I have never mentioned the word rape"

"Clearly a lot of u are not reading my tweets correctlym" 

EARLIER: After Neil Mitchell criticised the Collingwood players for allowing themselves to be filmed drinking and partying in the wake of very serious sexual allegations alleged against one of the club's players, the 3AW host has uncovered another example of a man connected to the footy world 'just not getting it'.

Former AFL star Peter 'Spida' Everitt has posted two tweets on his site http://twitter.com/spidaeveritt, which one can reasonably assume are linked to the woman who has filed a complaint with Victoria Police against at least one Collingwood player.

The Tweet credited to Everitt that is most damning says: "Girls!! When will you learn! At 3am when you are blind drunk & you decide to go home with a guy ITS NOT FOR A CUP OF MILO! Allegedly......"

This comment, posted around 10am today, comes on the back of allegations reported in The Australian newspaper which suggest a Collingwood footballer being investigated for taking part in an alleged pack sexual assault.

The attack allegedly occurred at a home in Dorcas Street South Melbourne in the early hours of Sunday morning and the newspaper's reporting  it allegedly involved the Collingwood player, the woman's boyfriend and several other men.

The paper's reporting the boyfriend urged her to have sex with the Premiership player and the others then forced their way into the bedroom.

The woman - a University student - has been medically examined as police compile their case.

Items from the South Melbourne address, including bedsheets and condoms, have also been taken away for forensic testing.

Everitt's Twitter account is followed by more than 1,300 people, which includes media representatives and footy fans.

3AW is seeking an explanation from Everitt.
