Grant Thomas believes an AFL umpire tried to influence the 2005 ‘Whispers in the Sky’ game

Grant Thomas, a former Australian rules football player and coach says he has no doubt an AFL umpire tried to influence the dramatic 2005 “Whispers in the Sky” game, accusing the league of a cover-up despite an official investigation. 

Also, Thomas believes his continuing squabble with AFL chief executive Andrew Demetriou played a key part in the dramatic fallout to that controversial contest.

Furthermore, he said that there were a number of extraordinary comments heard by his staffer Matt “Gus” Parker as well as Jones and Eddie McGuire. He also believes that the official investigation was a cover-up, with one integrity officer falling asleep in an interview with Parker.
