Triple M have sacked former Sydney captain Barry Hall for a comment he made during the pre-game show ahead of tonight’s Western Bulldogs vs. Geelong clash at Etihad Stadium.
After making the comment, Hall was told not to finish his shift, before being immediately removed from his position.
Triple M‘s Head of Content Mike Fitzpatrick made the following statement following the on-air gaff.
“Tonight on Triple M Football there were unacceptable and inappropriate comments made by a member of the commentary team,” the statement began.
“The commentator was removed immediately from the broadcast and an apology was issued on air afterwards.
“Immediate action was taken with the termination of employment for one team member.”
According to one listener, these were the comments Hall allegedly made.
