Just weeks after Indigenous players from Adelaide and Port Adelaide were subjected to racist abuse from the crowd during their clash at Adelaide Oval, another racist incident has occurred.
Vision surfaced on Sunday of an unidentified man leaning over a grandstand railing at Etihad Stadium allegedly hurling abuse at the trainer after he incurred a 50m penalty at a crucial time in Saturday's game.
The man is heard to yell 'Go back to the f***ing Chinese takeaway, you d***head.'
"Police have advised us that they are investigating the matter after a complaint was made to them," AFL spokesman Patrick Keane told the league's website.
"We would provide whatever assistance or information to assist their investigation that we're asked to, but obviously we would wait for them in that how they proceed will be a matter for police to determine.
"We would repeat again that such behaviour is never welcome or condoned at our matches."
Just last week, pictures of a man in a Port Adelaide jersey wearing a swastika armband emerged on social media.
Club general manager Matthew Richardson told News Corporation the club was appealing for anyone who had information about the man's identity to come forward.
“Port Adelaide is disturbed by the image and does not condone the action of the individual. It is strictly against our supporter code of conduct,” he was quoted as saying.
Earlier this month, a woman was charged by police after she labelled Indigenous Adelaide player Eddie Betts an "ape" on social media, after the Crows beat Port Adelaide.
Betts told a local radio show after the incident that racism is wrecking the enjoyment of AFL.
"We want to make footy an enjoyable place and support your team, win or lose.
"There is racial abuse ... it's not kid-friendly. It's just not a great place to be," he said.
AFL chief Gillon McLachlan pledged to do more to combat racism while the Adelaide and Port Adelaide clubs issued a joint message in a bid to end racial vilification.
A woman has been charged by police after she labelled Betts an "ape" on social media, after the Crows beat the Power.
In addition, a Port fan had his club membership rescinded for making a racial taunt during the game, while an Adelaide fan racially abused Port ruckman Paddy Ryder during the match.
