Senator calls for Eddie McGuire\'s resignation
Greens senator Lidia Thorpe has called on Collingwood president Eddie McGuire to resign in the wake of independent investigation uncovering a culture of 'structural racism' at the club.
"Eddie’s got to go," Ms Thorpe said. "As the head of the club, Eddie not only oversaw these issues - he’s been part of the problem.
"If we want to stamp out the rot of racism in this country, then it’s going to take real leadership from all corners of our society, including sport.
"The club has a long way to go to restore the community’s faith in their leadership.
"As a start, the board should grow a spine and get Eddie to resign."
McGuire announced earlier this year that he will be stepping down as Collingwood president at the end of this year.
Do you think Collingwood has a problem with racism? Should Eddie McGuire resign his position in the wake of the independent report?
