Richmond Football Club have announced a new clubroom celebration policy in light of a recent groping scandal that has rocked the AFL side.
The club were forced to change their celebrations after cameras in the changerooms caught several players groping each other, which led to much pearl-clutching by a handful of Twitter users.
The Tigers have stated that groping will be banned in the huddle during the club song, however, players may engage in a hug, kiss, lick or a bit of a dry root after the game instead.
“We think it’s the most masculine and manly way of going about celebrating a hard-fought victory and that’s what we’ll be doing from now on,” Richmond coach Damien Hardwick stated.
A Richmond supporter, who asked to remain anonymous for obvious reasons, told this reporter he was disappointed by the rule change.
“That was the most stimulating thing about watching their games.” he explained.
