The Port Adelaide fan behind a series of racist taunts about Eddie Betts has issued an apology and says she’d like to meet the Crows star in person, to tell him face-to-face.
However the club has ruled out any chance of her meeting Betts, as his teammates say the incident “rocked” the star.
When police knocked on Maxine Spratt’s door, she knew exactly what they were there for.
“I just said, ‘yeah I did it’,” she told 7 News.
It’s been four days since the 31-year-old’s vile online rant about Betts – which included labelling him an “ape”.
Spratt has issued an apology.
“I guess I’m just sorry what I did. I just truly regret doing it,” she said.
“I just shouldn’t have put it on there… it’s nasty and harsh.”
She wants the chance to say sorry to Betts in person.
“I even tried ringing the Crows club to see if I can go face to face and say sorry to Eddie Betts,” she said.
However the club has ruled that out, and says their only concern is for Eddie.
It’s a sentiment echoed by his teammates.
Crows skipper Taylor Walker was also slandered in the disturbing posts.
“It is baffling that people can write that and say that sort of stuff about other people,” Walker said.
“It’s pretty hard for Eddie and myself to not look… I felt more for Eddie than myself.”
Ms Spratt has been told neither Betts or Walker planned to press charges against her.
On Tuesday the Crows and Power united at Adelaide Oval to send a powerful message - "racism has no place in football".
They say they’re not going to put up with racist taunts.
