Tiger should be suspended over nude photo: Watson


Three-time premiership player Tim Watson believes the Richmond player who distributed a photo of a topless woman wearing a premiership medallion around her neck should be suspended.

Victoria Police, the AFL and the Tigers are investigating the situation, where the woman claims the photo was shared without her consent, according to the Herald Sun.

Watson reckons the football industry must crack down on the issue and deliver a stern and acceptable punishment.

“They should be proactive,” he told SEN Breakfast.

“They haven’t named the player yet, but I think they should make a pre-emptive strike. You suspend him for a period next season and they come up with a determination based on what they know as a penalty for him. Then the law will look after itself and there might be a greater penalty imposed by the law.

“They know the details, the club knows. Once they’ve conducted their own investigation, then I think they make a penalty or some sort of stand and they pre-empt whatever may happen through the courts.”

Furthermore, the Herald Sun’s report added the investigation could also focus on individuals who have shared the photo around, not just the person who took the picture.
