Former Carlton footballer explains why he let go of his infamous grudge against Alastair Clarkson
The former Carlton player who was knocked out behind play by Alastair Clarkson in the infamous “Battle of Britain” exhibition match in 1987 has explained why he let go of the grudge after more than 30 years.
Ian Aitken joined Tom Elliott on Thursday to discuss the matter.
He’ll appear on an episode of Insight on SBS next week, which will explore the issue of grudges and why people hold on to them, or let them go.
Aitken admits he hadn’t forgiven Clarkson for what happened in the clash in London between Carlton and North Melbourne until a mediation session a few years ago.
“He’s been great since,” Aitken told 3AW.
