Four Melbourne players were banned from selection against Sydney on Friday night after a drinking session.
Jay Kennedy-Harris, Ben Kennedy, Dean Kent and Jake Spencer were all told they would not be selected against Sydney, News Corp reported.
According to the report, the quartet indulged in a drinking session after a VFL match last weekend.
None of them were named as an emergency this weekend.
Kennedy-Harris, Kennedy and Kent were all in the frame to return to the team this round, given Melbourne's mounting injury crisis.
The three were all named in the best in Casey's 26-point win over Box Hill last week.
Instead, Simon Goodwin turned to defender Jayden Hunt to fill a gaping small forward role left by the injured Jeff Garlett.
The three responded in the VFL today, with Kennedy racking up 29 disposals, Kennedy-Harris recording 27 and a goal and Kent finishing with 23 and a goal.
