Clarkson fined for umpire comments

Clarkson fined for umpire comments

HAWTHORN coach Alastair Clarkson has been slapped with a $20,000 fine by the AFL for his criticism of the umpires following the Hawks’ loss to Gold Coast.

“I’m not allowed to comment on disgraceful umpiring so I’m better off not saying anything, aren’t I?” Clarkson replied when asked about a contentious 50m penalty in his post-match press conference.

The coach publicly apologised for the remark on Sunday, but was still issued with the fine, $15,000 of which is suspended until the end of the season, while the AFL has agreed to the remaining $5000 being donated to Neale Daniher’s fight against motor neurone disease.
