Longmire fires back at Clarkson’s post-match jibe
Sydney coach John Longmire has fired back at Alastair Clarkson.
Clarkson had said some of Sydney’s defenders “got away with blue murder” with their tactics during the Swans’ win over Hawthorn on Friday night.
Clarkson then doubled down on his comments, reportedly taking up the issue with AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan at a cafe on Monday morning.
But Longmire said the timing of his comment was conspicuous.
“It was a strange comment considering the previous three times when they beat us, nothing was said,” Longmire said on Monday afternoon.
Longmire said Hawthorn’s defenders often do the same thing Clarkson was accusing the Swans of doing.
