PACIFIC STAR BETWORK Sports 3AK (SEN 1116)/MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA has fired Australian Rules football commentator and former ST. KILDA player and coach GRANT THOMAS.
The MELBOURNE AGE reports that THOMAS, who had been on the station's lead football announcing crew and appeared on the SATURDAY "CRUNCH TIME" show, said that while speculation has centered on the possibility that he was fired for his criticism of the AFL and that the league may have played a role in his dismissal, he could " only go on what I've been told and that's it's for financial reasons.... I know that I've never been on the AFL's Christmas card list but that's just between me and the AFL isn't it?"
