James Hird may be sacked over wife's bombshell comments

ESSENDON chairman Paul Little has expressed his disappointment after Tania Hird last night revived the explosive allegation that AFL chief executive Andrew Demetriou tipped off the club about the supplements saga.

Eddie McGuire asked Little on Triple M this morning if it was becoming more untenable for James Hird to return to Essendon as coach.

"Up until the events of the last 24 hours we believed that James was acting and responding to our requests in a positive way," Little said on Triple M's The Hot Breakfast.

Little denied that Hird has been sacked, but said the club would be discussing his future today.

"The club will have to meet now to determine how we go forward in relation to the James Hird issue and probably the broader group that surrounds James," Little said.
