Tony Shaw says Alastair Clarkson should have been fined closer to $50,000

Tony Shaw said the AFL should have gone harder on Alastair Clarkson.

The Hawks coach was fined $5,000 for describing umpiring as “disgraceful”, but the former Pies legend said it should have been closer to $50,000.

“We’re trying to recruit junior umpires,” Shawry said.

“I reckon the senior umpires would have been filthy on the AFL that they gave into him.”

Shaw said Clarkson has had enough clashes with umpires at various levels to warrant a more serious penalty.

“He’ll probably get the sooky sooky la-las and won’t talk to us for three years after we say this,” Shaw said.
