IT APPEARS Western Australia’s tough border stance has claimed the professional scalp of sports broadcaster Eddie McGuire, who has had his application to travel across the border to cover the AFL Grand Final knocked back.
Friend and fellow media personality Steve Price outed Eddie’s displeasure with the decision, publicising texts McGuire sent to him shortly after the call was made.
“I think that I qualify to be perfectly honest. It doesn’t make any sense that I don’t qualify given the amount of media going in,” McGuire said.
“I would’ve thought, modesty aside, that I would’ve brought something to the atmosphere of what we were trying to do.”
