The Fremantle Aussie Rules side's become embroiled in a fresh controversy after it was revealed players are dressing up as members of the Ku Klux Klan and raiding each others' houses as a prank.

Just as the AFL recovers from North Melbourne's 'chickengate' affair, where two players were fined $5000 each over a chicken sex video scandal, a Freemantle official has revealed the latest controversy on a Perth radio station.

Player development manager Steve Malaxos was originally asked about a prank that involved a player altering the club's training schedule to include a 3km time trial, when he went onto say players were also dressing in KKK-like gear and conducting the raids.
