"The stupidity involved in that is on a different level": Lyon


Former Melbourne captain Garry Lyon believes Jack Watts should be fined for his actions at Oktoberfest last year.

A video surfaced on the internet yesterday of Watts snorting a white substance off of a woman’s chest at an Oktoberfest event.

His manager Paul Connors later told the Herald Sun it was a peppermint tobacco substance, commonly found at these types of festivals – something which is perfectly legal.

“It’s been pointed out this substance he’s seen to be sniffing off the chest of a woman at Oktoberfest is legal,” Lyon told SEN Breakfast.

“Now, they will investigate that, but the stupidity involved in this on different levels.

“From a Port Adelaide point of view, they’d just look at that and shake their head and say Jack, what could you possibly achieve from something like this?

“It’s a legal substance, but surely at some stage, and it looked like he’d had a few jugs of beer, and it is the off-season, but gee whiz, what a stupid look for the competition and kids that are coming up.

“We know that drugs are huge issue in society and sport, for the look itself, he deserves to be fined at least.

“From what we are told it’s not illegal, but the look is terrible. It’s not a hanging offense, it’s just a silly look.”
