VFL fans accused of racist taunts

Date

VFL fans are accused of racially vilifying players during a Frankston-Coburg match. 

Frankston supporters allegedly lashed out at opposition players during the quarter time and three-quarter time huddles in yesterday's VFL clash at Frankston Oval.

Richmond's Andrew Browne was playing for the Coburg Tigers and has taken to twitter to label Frankston fans 'disgusting'.

Browne tweeted that people were coming up to the huddle and verbally abusing individuals.

He says there's no place in the game for racist comments.

Coburg's general manager has referred the matter to the AFL while Frankston says it isn't aware of the allegations.

Disappointed with Coburg's performance. Frankston supporters were disgusting. There is no place in the game for some of the comments made.
