Mick’s Grill: Mick Warner lashes ‘disgraceful’ treatment of ‘Frankie’ the footy fan

Mick Warner has gone into bat for ‘Franky’ the footy fan, saying he’d been “hung out to dry” by the AFL and several sections of the media.

It comes after he was controversially booted from Marvel Stadium for calling an umpire a “bald-headed flog”.
