When, in the heat of battle on the football field recently, AFL player Patrick McGinnity threatened to rape the mother of opposition player Ricky Petterd, it caused a furore.
“I was just a bit shocked. You don’t expect to hear stuff like that,” Petterd said.
“I had a bit of a chat to Mum. She’s fine. She understands football.”
While Petterd’s mother might forgive and forget, author and commentator, Jane Caro is not about to.
