“The AFL confirms it’s wanting into the incident between Steven Could and Jake Melksham that transpired on Sunday night,” the assertion learn on Thursday night.
“It doesn’t matter what the scenario or circumstances, violence isn’t the reply. As skilled footballers, as individuals, we count on higher and whereas the membership has taken the matter extraordinarily significantly, the AFL is at present conducting its personal investigation.”
It stays unclear at this stage whether or not the league will impose its personal separate suspension on any of the Melbourne gamers concerned within the ugly scenes.
“Steven is extraordinarily remorseful and accepts his actions had been fully out of step with the expectations the membership and his teammates have of him. He accepts the sanction handed down and makes no excuse for his poor judgement,” the Demons mentioned in an announcement earlier this week.
“We’re happy with the tradition we now have constructed over the previous few years and whereas we’re upset with Steven’s behaviour, we again in his character and can assist him to make sure he’s armed to make higher selections for himself and the soccer membership shifting ahead.”
