Cornesy Speaks Out About Controversial Post-Game Moment

Jun 4, 2019


Graham Cornes has dismissed criticism of Channel 7 after the broadcaster fixed a change room camera on Sam Weideman after the Demon missed a goal to win the game against the Adelaide Crows on Saturday night.

“It is what it is,” Cornesy told the FIVEaa sports show. “Had he kicked the goal it would’ve been on him longer.”

“He will learn from that. It’s a horrible thing but it’s not his fault. One goal 11 -- how many other teammates missed other goals, missed easy marks. Simon Goodwin would’ve told him that. He would’ve consoled him straight after the game and said, look, it doesn’t come down to one kick. It shouldn’t come down to one kick.

“They had the better of that game. They threw it away -- allowed the Crows to get in front and stay in front.

“He’ll learn from it… I don’t think it will scar him for life.”
