In the light of Richmond star Dustin Martin allegedly threatening to stab a woman with a chopstick at a Melbourne restaurant, the head of the White Ribbon Australia has said AFL players accused of violence against women should be stood down until their cases are resolved.
Martin is claimed to have threatened to stab a female restaurant patron with a chopstick, but has participated in club training sessions despite the matter being handed to police. Even then, the league ran an in-house investigation into the matter for four days before turning their info to the authorities.
