FAIRFAX Talk 3AW/MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA Australian Rules Football commentator and former star player WAYNE CAREY has been dropped from the station.
CAREY's departure comes shortly after CAREY was arrested in a clash with police after a domestic dispute at his apartment, although the station says that the decision to drop CAREY came before the incident. CAREY is being replaced by another former football star, NATHAN BUCKLEY, who has signed a three-year deal with 3AW. CAREY's job as football commentator at NINE NETWORK is also in question after the highly publicized incident.
