Caroline Wilson last night responded to Sam Newman’s criticism on The Footy Show, referring to the former Geelong player as a “neanderthal”.
“I’m not surprised, the guy’s just a bit of a neanderthal isn’t he?” Wilson said on Adelaide radio station FIVEaa prior to the Crows’ win over North Melbourne at Adelaide Oval.
“He lives in the past, he’s missed the point completely with all of this as he has with so many big issues in footy in recent years.
“I don’t think he did Eddie any good at all with his comments. I totally expected that from Sam. His lack of judgment as he’s got older has really baffled me.”
Newman caused controversy with his comments on the Caroline Wilson drowning joke controversy on The Footy Show on Wednesday night.
