"We get 12,000 people a year that blow over 0.05," Fryer said.
"What is he, 21, 22? And he's getting vilified in the press.
"We've had journalists, we've had high-profile businessmen - but they don't end up on front page of the paper or spoken about.
"But really, it's a lesson for everyone; we are out there.
"This kid's made a mistake. I've got no doubt that he'll be spoken to by family and the club.
"I don't even barrack for Collingwood and I'm still supporting the guy.
"The reality is he's made a mistake, he's relatively young... it just serves to send a message; if you want to the run the gauntlet we're out there and you're probably going to get caught.
"I've got no doubt he's learned his lesson already - I can't see him doing it again."
