Players’ union boss lashes out at ‘appalling and irresponsible’ reports
AFLPA boss Paul Marsh has taken aim at “appalling and irresponsible” reports about footballers fighting over money in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking with Neil Mitchell, Marsh said any suggestion the players were digging in their heels over pay was incorrect.
“The reports around that this week have been appalling and irresponsible,” he said.
“Of course the players will take a pay cut.
“Everybody is taking a pay cut.”
He went a step further with his displeasure on 3AW Football when asked about how the players had been portrayed by some in the media.
“Disgusted, to be honest,” Marsh said.
