The Essendon member who famously had a crack at Melbourne ruckman Max Gawn yesterday has apologised for his actions.
The club has also issued him with a first and final warning.
If he breaches their code again he will have his membership revoked.
He issued this apology:
“I am truly sorry and embarrassed by my behaviour. Watching that back on TV I was sickened by my outburst especially as there were women and children nearby.
“I now realise that Max Gawn was just doing his job playing football and my actions were terrible.
“This has made me look at myself and realise never to behave like that again. I would like to apologise to Max Gawn for my behaviour and also to my family who have been embarrassed and ashamed of my behaviour.
“I would also like to apologise to Essendon Football Club for my actions as it embarrasses and affects the club I love.”
