LIVE: AFL boss says Dusty video a 'poor look'

4 weeks ago 40

AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan says the league is seeking more details on the context surrounding a video which appears to show Richmond star Dustin Martin grabbing the breast of a topless woman.

The video is understood to be from 2015, but emerged late on Wednesday night, 24 hours prior to the Tigers' finals clash against the Lions.

"What I'd say at the outset is that respect for women is paramount generally. As a statement it's clear across the AFL and unambiguous," McLachlan told Channel Seven.

"[At] first pass the video, it's a poor look, but I don't have any further information, I only found out late last night.

"I don't have any further information this morning about Dustin's relationship to the woman, her views, the circumstances, the facts, and so without any information it's hard for me to comment any further."

McLachlan confirmed that the video is being investigated by the AFL Integrity Unit.

"It's with our integrity guys and they'll follow up at the right time, and I'm sure they will speak to everyone involved," he said.

"I don't have any context or information beyond that, I don't think it's fair to anyone involved to comment further than that until we have the information."
