AFLW star Tayla Harris says that she “doesn’t care” that she is labeled “useless” by an opponent and has accepted her apology for the brutal sleigh after the game.
Collingwood defender Stacey Livingstone made the swipe during an interview after her match on Saturday defeated Harris’ Carlton 39-24 in Ikon Park.
When Livingstone was asked how she was preparing for Harris, she replied: “This is the fourth year, so I’d like to think that I already know how to play her.
“You just have to put her in the air – that’s her game. If you can, she is useless. ”
Livingstone has since said that she could have chosen her words better.
Harris said in an interview on Monday that “she didn’t care in the first place and doesn’t care now” and that she accepted Livingstone’s apology, which she said was made “very quickly.”
“I’m not sure why we’re talking about this when she’s played the best game of her career and we’re talking about something so small,” she told Seven News.

Carlton Ahead Tayla Harris, 22, rose to prominence in March last year when a photo of himself performing an air kick collected a number of sexist reactions after it was posted online
Livingstone had 15 divestments before the game, while Harris took over two points, had six sales and managed to score one goal in the 15-point defeat.
Livingstone practiced what she preached and challenged Harris in the air at various points in the tense game.
Harris made the news in March last year after a photo of her kicks for goal was posted on the 7AFL site during an AFLW competition.

After the game, Livingstone and Harris hugged each other before saying goodbye. Minutes later, the defender of Collingwood gave her brutally honest opinion about Harris’s playing style in an interview
The post was just as inundated with nasty sexual comments before the image was removed.
“Some comments were sexual abuse, which I would consider sexual abuse on social media,” Harris told RSN Radio’s Breakfast Club at the time.
‘These people must be called by the AFL, but something must go further. It is something Victoria Police might have to look at. ”
