‘I couldn’t believe it’: Zorko’s frank admission on media access
Brisbane Lions captain Dayne Zorko says he “couldn’t believe” the furor over Brisbane’s in-game media access against Collingwood last Thursday.
Host broadcaster Channel 7 was allowed to interview Daniel Rich as he was running onto the field, while they also conducted a much talked-about interview with Luke Hodge on the interchange bench during the match.
Zorko said the reaction has been disappointing, preferring to see fans given more media access in matches.
“There’s a bit of disappointed that (Hodge’s interview) has got the backlash it has,” he said.
“I couldn’t believe it to be honest – the media want greater access to players during the game and Hodgey was able to give up his time during the game to take those interviews.
“But I know Hodgey, he won’t stop doing that. He does everything to help out our football club and Thursday night was no exception.”
