Shamed former AFL star Barry Hall is undecided if he will continue to pursue media opportunities following his sacking from Triple M for vulgar comments made on-air.
The Swans 2005 skipper attended a function at Eudunda Robertstown Football Club on Saturday night despite the controversial episode, which included a post-dinner speech and Q&A session.
Hall spoke to The Adelaide Advertiser at the airport on Sunday morning, describing the local footy function as “great” and that his Friday night indiscretion was not brought up.
“It wasn’t really spoken about…I didn’t want to put a dampener on the night,” Hall told The Adelaide Advertiser.
He said he was trying to move on from the event and was “not sure” if he would pursue future media jobs.
It come’s after Hall’s public apology via The Daily Telegraph for the act.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to apologise for any offence taken from my commentary on Friday night’s Triple M footy coverage,” Hall told The Daily Telegraph.
“It was a silly thing to say and it is not a reflection of who I am or what my views are.
“I am a proud father and dedicated partner and have nothing but respect for women.
“I apologise to The Montagna family for any upset I have caused them and wish them all the best with the exciting arrival of their baby.
“I am sorry, I should not have said such an inappropriate comment on air and hope I can be forgiven and move forward from here.”
Hall’s partner, former Hi- Five children’s entertainer Lauran Brant, also defended Hall’s nature.
“I want people to know that Barry has an absolute heart of gold,” Brant told The Daily Telegraph.
“He is the most adoring partner and loving and proud father and would never want to offend any person, especially women. I say that as an empowered female myself.
“Unfortunately, my little family is facing the upsetting backlash to a ‘throwaway’ comment.”
