The Bulldogs’ season came to a close after their elimination final loss to St Kilda, with the club soon celebrating their best and fairest night two days later within the AFL’s Queensland hub.
Situated at the RACV Royal Pines resort, the Bulldogs players were celebrating their last night at the resort whilst neighbouring with Richmond players and their partners and families.
On Monday night, The Herald Sun released a video posted to Instagram by Crook, deploring the noise coming from the Bulldogs’ rooms.
Crook labelled the Bulldogs’ behaviour as “selfish”.
“I opened my door shortly – because I heard some moving around – and I saw the security guard,” Crook says.
“I said, ‘Hey, can you hear that music? It’s really loud, we can hear it right through our walls’, because I could still hear the music after he told them off.
“He said, ‘Yeah, we’ve just told them off (and to) turn their music down’.
“Little losers have turned it up louder in spite of this.
“I wouldn’t go off about something like this, but Richmond and Geelong are training for their finals that are in two or three days.
“Probably doing their final session of training that is extremely important for a final, and these idiots – just because they’ve gotten knocked out – are treating it like a western suburbs nightclub.
“How selfish can you be? Literally get on your flight back to Footscray, or wherever the f*** you live.
“It just makes me so mad.”
The AFL are believed to have had no issues with the events that took place apart from the noise, as players continued to follow AFL COVID-19 guidelines.
The Western Bulldogs have also responded to the reports, stating Crook’s complaints were overblown.
