Last week on air Lynn said of his team’s standing, “We’re going to need something …. otherwise we might only see the one positive out of the delayed coverage for the Queensland viewers.”
But according to News Corp:
It sparked a major blow-up from Ten who contacted Cricket Australia demanding action against Lynn.
CA issued the Heat with a “please explain” and at one stage it appeared the Heat may been forced to fine Lynn for making comments which they privately supported.
In the end Lynn was asked to write an apology to the network and not discuss it publicly. Social media users, supportive of his remarks, were even offering to help pay any fine with the hashtag #IllcoveryouLynny.
TEN has slated earlier broadcasts in Adelaide this week and Perth viewers can watch Live via ONE, but Brissy viewers remain on delay.
But the network demanding an apology has now attracted negative social comments of its own. Refer: Streisand Effect.
TEN did not respond with comment by publication.
