AUSTEREO's 3MMM (TRIPLE M)/MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA Australian Rules Football controversial commentator SAM NEWMAN has been dropped from the station's football coverage team for dropping a variation of the "f-bomb" on the air during last SATURDAY's postgame show after the ST. KILDA-WESTERN BULLDOGS match.
NEWMAN called a caller to the show a "F---wit," prompting the dismissal; he walked out of a GEELONG-WESTERN BULLDOGS match broadcast at halftime two weeks ago. NEWMAN will continue with the FRIDAY sports talk show and SATURDAY pre-game show until the end of the season, at which point his contract will be coming up for renewal.
