More racist remarks at MCG AFL match

5:49 am on 27 May 2013

Another Collingwood Aussie Rules fan has been captured on video yelling racist comments during Friday night's AFL match against Sydney.

Swans superstar Adam Goodes has already spoken of his deep distress at being called an "ape" by a 13-year-old girl supporting the Magpies late in the MCG clash.

Now television footage shows a man wearing Collingwood apparel screaming about indigenous players during the same game.

A Magpies spokesman says if the man is a Collingwood member and the club is able to identify him, he will have his membership cancelled in line with the club's zero tolerance policy to racism.

However, the Magpies have viewed the footage and believe it was from the top level of the MCG's Southern Stand, which is not an area reserved for their members.

That indicates the man is probably not a Collingwood member.

On Saturday Goodes received an apology from the 13-year-old girl and said while he was "gutted" by her comment, she needed to be supported and educated.
