AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan says he and the AFL will do whatever it takes to ensure there are no more violence and alcohol related incidents at AFL games.
There have been a number of incidents involving fans that have led to brawls and physical altercations this season, and McLachlan revealed he and the AFL are working towards a solution.
“I think that people’s ability to talk about their experiences, or them be recorded or to do something about it, hopefully is on the increase,” McLachlan told SEN’s Whateley.
“Our job, my job, the security firm’s job, is to make sure every single person that goes to the football has a fun, safe experience.
“And we’ll do whatever we need, and we’ll continue to work on whatever we need to, to make sure that happens.
“We currently have SMS lines if someone’s swearing or behaving poorly.
“If we need to interview quicker, harder, faster, whatever we need to do we’ll do because that’s our obligation.
“It is to do the best we can to make sure that everyone’s experience is uninterrupted by the behaviour of boorish at the least patrons, and idiotic crazy ones like we saw on Saturday night.
“You shouldn’t be able to go and drink so heavily that you aren’t behaving socially, and you should be thrown out, that’s pretty simple in my mind.
“I don’t have someone saying to me that we have a big issue, but clearly when they’re instances like we’ve had when I think there’s been half a dozen this year, it's unacceptable.”
