Caroline Wilson ‘staggered’ by lack of public pressure on Triple M over ‘sexist’ comments

Caroline Wilson says it’s not up to the AFL to decide whether Eddie McGuire, James Brayshaw and Danny Frawley deserve sanctions over comments they made about her on radio.

She said she was ‘staggered’ by the lack of public pressure on Triple M – the station which the comments were aired.

Triple M has since issued a public apology.

Wilson has accepted apologies from all three involved after they joked about holding her under water.

While AFL boss Gillon McLachlan strongly condemned the comments on Monday, the AFL has been criticised in some quarters for not acting stronger.

But Wilson said it was up to their employer, not the AFL, to decide on any punishment.

‘They (Triple M) are the ones who should be sanctioning them,’ she said on Sports Today.

‘It’s great the AFL said something, because they are two AFL club presidents, but I don’t understand why it’s not the employer being taken to task?’

The 3AW Football commentator said Triple M had form in the area – previously labelling her ‘ugly woman, perfume scorpion and the black widow’ on air.

‘It’s just sexist crap,’ she said.

‘It’s horrible language.’

However, Wilson said comments from Wayne Carey – in which he distanced himself completely from the joke – had not received enough attention.

‘I think it’s important to point that out,’ she said.
