30 Juin, 2018, 22:37 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

Triple M has sacked Barry Hall immediately after a controversial on-air comment.

At the time, Hall was speaking to former St Kilda player and co-commentator Leigh Montagna during a pre-game chat ahead of Friday night's clash between the Western Bulldogs and Geelong at Etihad Stadium. An on-air apology for the comments was issued moments after and Hall was immediately removed from the broadcast, his employment with Triple M terminated.

"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".

Montagna's wife Erin is due with the couple's first baby next week. This was confirmed in a statement released last night by Mike Fitzpatrick, Head of Content for Triple M, and again repeated this morning by reporter Damian Barrett.

Hall, who was filling in for regular commentator Chris Judd, was set to be part of the coverage of the game itself, but was absent from the broadcast following the 7pm news break.

Considered one of the best forwards of the modern era, the 41-year-old played 289 games for Saints, Sydney and the Bulldogs, kicking 746 goals.

He also captained the Swans to their 2005 premiership but his career was marred by a number of high-profile, on-field incidents.

He played for Labrador in the QAFL past year and was reported for punching an opponent twice in a grand final loss to Palm Beach-Currumbin.

The four-time All Australian and AFL Premiership victor with the Swans retired in 2011 and has a one-year-old son with former Hi-5 member Lauren Brant.
