AFL players have joined those calling out the banana-throwing incident as a racist act that needs to be stamped out of the game.On Saturday night, indigenous Adelaide star Eddie Betts had a banana thrown at him by a Port Adelaide fan.A Port Adelaide investigation concluded the act was racially motivated, and the woman had her membership cancelled indefinitely.AFL Players indigenous advisory board chair and Hawthorn premiership-winner Shaun Burgoyne said the incident had appalled players.Theres no room for racism of any form in our game and we are saddened that incidents of this nature continue to occur, Burgoyne said.Eddie Betts is one of the most popular players in the game and his 250th match should have been a time for celebration.The AFL industry is taking great strides to ensure Aussie Rules is a game for everyone, but this serves as a reminder that more work needs to be done.We are buoyed by the emphatic response from the community and hope this incident provides an opportunity for further education.Club official Matthew Richardson said on Monday the woman, who has not been named by the club, had accepted the clubs offer of cultural awareness training.She quite clearly recognises that shes made a terrible mistake and well work with her on that, Richardson told ABC Radio.We do quite extensive cultural awareness training with all our staff, so well involve her in that program, and that does include our indigenous players.The throwing of a banana towards Betts drew instant comparison to similar racist acts targeting black soccer players.Port Adelaide chairman David Koch defended his decision not to label the act as racist until late on Sunday.I was in contact with Eddie Betts all throughout yesterday and our Aboriginal leaders in the club and they approved every step that we took, Koch told Melbourne radio station 3AW.Somebody whos not used to that scrutiny, even though some may say she deserves it, youve got to be very careful about how you handle it.AFL Aboriginal advisory committee chair Paul Briggs said AFL fans were appalled by the behaviour.While speculation and debate will occur around the motivation of such behaviour, it is clearly an unambiguous racist act, something most fair-minded Australians would find appalling and unacceptable, he said.A man purporting to be the father of the banned fan told Adelaide radio station 5AA his daughter was not racist, and was subject to sensationalised media rubbish.
