Sporting identity lashes out at real estate figure over boycott of children's charity.

The chair and founder of the Desert Sports Foundation, Murray Stewart (pictured), says Framptons Real Estate principal Andrew Doyle had withdrawn two teams from his company from a children's charity event.

Mr Stewart says he had a call from one of Mr Doyle's staff this morning saying Mr Doyle did not wish to "give money to Murray's charity".
The exchange followed the publication yesterday of a comment by Mr Stewart and his wife, Brigida, on a story in the current Alice Springs News Online edition.

Mr and Mrs Stewart expressed support for the News following this week's Supreme Court decision in a defamation case brought by the other Framptons principal, David Forrest.
Mr Stewart says Mr Doyle phoned him yesterday, expressing his annoyance over the Stewarts' comment.
Mr Stewart says after the cancellation today of the Frampton teams' participation he left a message for Mr Doyle about the matter but did not receive a response.
When asked by the Alice Springs News for a comment Mr Doyle emailed today: "It’s not true, publish at your own peril" and later provided a further comment.
We put this to Mr Stewart and he has subsequently spoken to Mr Doyle.
Of that phone call Mr Stewart says: "He said, with great clarity, 'following the phone call I had with you yesterday, I'm not prepared to spend David Forrest's money on that'." ERWIN CHLANDA reports.
