Sun Aaron Hall potentially racially abused by fan

Gold Coast coach Rodney Eade says any potential racial abuse hurled at Suns midfielder Aaron Hall during the club’s loss to Hawthorn must be investigated.

Broadcast audio picked up a member of the crowd throwing abuse in the direction of Hall after he was given a free kick in the third quarter of Sunday’s game.

There was conjecture the abuse, picked up on Fox Footy’s coverage, could have been aimed at a field umpire.

“Can you even see that far, you monkey,” the fan was heard to yell.

Witnesses said no one from the crowd remonstrated with the abusive fan.

Eade said he was unaware of the state of any racial vilification investigation in the ­direct moments after the game but said if race-based remarks were potentially made they needed to be investigated.

“If that’s the case hopefully the officials here, the AFL and the people here at Launceston oval, get the people involved because it’s not acceptable,” Eade said.
