WATCH: Hardwick In Altercation With Fan Channel Seven

The AFL Integrity unit is reportedly investigating a verbal altercation that took place between Richmond coach Damien Hardwick and an Adelaide Crows fan at the conclusion of Thursday night’s grand final rematch at Adelaide Oval.



After watching his team lose by 36 points, Hardwick was captured on TV walking down the stairs from the coaches’ box towards the oval, when he suddenly stopped in his tracks, backtracked and confronted the fan who said something to the premiership coach moments earlier.

The comment was cutting enough for Hardwick to turn around and lean in towards the fan, before appearing to feign a headbutt, possibly in an attempt to scare the fan, and pointing him out to security guards.

Before resuming his trip towards to the oval, Hardwick angrily pulled on the top of a security guard to once again point out the fan who elicited the reaction out of him.
