The Pendlebury/Selwood crisis enveloping the AFL has entered its fourth day with further analysis of the players’ post-siren verbal altercation.
The incident saw the two AFL stars briefly sledging each other before shaking hands.
So serious was the incident, that the Melbourne media have devoted four days of coverage to it.
“This is obviously a huge story,” said a senior producer who asked to remain anonymous.
“We have several teams working around the clock on it and have a big feature planned for the week anniversary of the incident.”
Footy fan and Cats supporter Sara Humphries said everyone remembers where they were when the incident occur.
“It feels like we all lost our innocence that day and nothing will be the same again. I’m finding it hard to concentrate at work and instead I’m just trying to keep up with developments.”
Both Selwood and Pendlebury have explained the incident in detail and how little there was in it, intensifying coverage.
AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan has rejected suggestions to delay round seven in response to the incident.
