The public know only half the story about Will Minson’s sexual slur to Danyle Pearce, the Port Adelaide AFL star says.
But Pearce is not telling the rest in a bid to end the controversy above the offensive remark about his mom manufactured by the Western Bulldogs ruck.
Minson was suspended for one particular match by the Bulldogs for producing an offensive remark to Pearce for the duration of their June 17 match.
Pearce stated there was a lot more to Minson’s comments than broadly reported.
“I have read the reports … you guys have not written down every little thing that was said,” Pearce informed reporters on Tuesday.
“Me and Will are the only ones that had been truly there the whole time and I know there was much more said.
“And I reacted since I didn’t really feel that was one thing that must be brought up in a game of football.
“Items have taken the program, and I left it with that.”
Minson, when creating a public apology for his feedback, explained he was attempting to get in touch with the Port utility.
But Pearce explained he hadn’t received a individual apology from Minson.
“I have not had a get in touch with from him,” Pearce explained.
“But I have contacted their (Minson’s) family members and we’ll just leave it at that.
“I have expressed my emotions and I have moved on.”
Asked if he essential an apology from Minson, Pearce said: “As lengthy as he realises what he explained is not going to be tolerated, then that is all that requirements to be said and all that demands to be accomplished.”
