Experienced caller Anthony Hudson was commentating when Fremantle ruckman Sean Darcy slotted a critical goal from a set shot in the fourth quarter to bolster the Dockers’ lead in a close-fought game.
There was confusion among fans who tuned into Fox Footy, who thought they heard Hudson shout ‘F***!’ as Darcy sent the ball flying through the goal posts.
But others believed the 50-year-old commentator said ‘thud’ or ‘thump’ as he described ‘big man’ Darcy converting his set shot.
