Clinton Maynard and Craig Willis slam Barry Hall over inappropriate joke

AFL great Barry Hall has been sacked by a radio station in Melbourne after making a vile on-air comment.

Hall was speaking to his co-commentator, former St Kilda player Leigh Montagna, during a pre-game chat when he spoke about the impending birth of Montagna’s child.

Montagna’s wife Erin is due with the couple’s first baby.

The radio network issued a statement saying the comments were unacceptable and inappropriate.

News Corp reports Barry Hall has issued an apology for the joke.

Weekend Afternoons’ Craig Willis and Clinton Maynard didn’t miss when talking about the comment.
