Recently, AFL legend Garry Lyon has criticized Port Adelaide star Jack Watts after the release of his controversial video. Video footage appeared from Oktoberfest in Germany last October where Watts was sniffing a white substance off a woman’s chest.
Following the controversy, former Melbourne Demons captain, Garry Lyon said that Watts should pay fine for his “absurdity” even though it was a legal substance. On the contrary, Watts has apologized for his activities in the video.
Regardless of the legitimacy of the suspected substance, Garry condemned his behavior for setting a poor example to the world. The former professional Australian Rules football player Garry added:
“It’s a legal substance, but surely at some stage, and it looked like he’d had a few jugs of beer, and it is the off-season, but gee whiz, what a stupid look for the competition and kids that are coming up.
