Sydney: Australian cricketer Steve O’Keefe was recently indicted by Cricket Australia for making highly inappropriate remarks while under the influence of alcohol. The cricketer was also fined $ 20,000 for the offense.
The comments were reportedly directed against New South Wales cricketer Rachel Haynes, her teammates and their partners and also included sexual remarks.
“He made comments to Rachel Haynes and her partner of a sexual nature but they were not homophobic,” Channel Nine reporter Neil Breen said. “And if they were homophobic, you would find out that he probably would have been banned from the game.
“… He admitted they were very offensive, he fell on his sword and he was fined $ 20,000 and banned from next year’s Matador Cup.
“Earlier in the evening he fell in love with a lot of people in the room, officials, he said things to the teammates, he said things to the partners of the teammates. Some people have tried to remove it from the function. Inexplicably, he was allowed to participate in the after party after some of these behaviors.
Breen also recalled a previous incident of drunken behavior in which O’Keefe was involved.
“Last year in August when he came back from the Sri Lanka tour very disappointed he drank and went to the Manly Steyne hotel got drunk he was asked to leave he didn’t ‘did not leave and the cops came, ”he said. .
“Then he said things to the cops that night like you think you are so hard with your gun and your badge, that anyone can get a gun and a badge, you just go to Goulburn and you you sit on your back.
“… He takes the glass, he has a problem.”
