Dustin Martin fined by the AFL over ‘offensive’ hand gestures
Richmond star Dustin Martin has been fined by the AFL over his offensive hand gestures on Saturday.
He’s copped a $7500 fine for a raised middle-finger and gesture imitating the snorting of drugs during a heated clash with GWS.
Martin only has to pay $2500 of the fine up front, with the remaining $5000 suspended until the end of 2020.
The 2017 Brownlow medallist was also suspended for striking Adam Kennedy during the match.
He had a two-game ban cut to one week on appeal.
Martin was also fined $1500 for an elbow to the midriff of Matt de Boer in the same game.
Frustrating one on the weekend !! I understand my reaction is not a good look for the game.. I apologise for my actions . Thanks 🤙🏼
