Richmond’s senior players have driven a decision to boycott radio station Triple M this week in the continued fallout to the controversy involving Eddie McGuire.
The Tigers, who face the Brisbane Lions at the MCG during the prime radio timeslot of Saturday afternoon, could yet continue the boycott beyond this week.
Star forward Jack Riewoldt said the club had reacted strongly to disparaging comments made by McGuire about journalist Caroline Wilson during the lead-up to the Queen’s Birthday clash a week ago.
“There’s been discussion had at the footy club about how we felt about it and how everything went down,” Riewoldt told Fox Footy on Tuesday night.
“The club’s pretty strong in its stance and our club’s a real leader for supporting women’s rights.”
