The Tigers have taken away the membership of the fan for the next two years, taking all of their member rights away from them.
Racial vilification has no place in our game, and no place in our society, and the Club will continue to take strong measures to ensure there is zero tolerance to this behaviour.

The news came from the Tigers just hours after West Coast posted a video on their social media channels, describing the hurt the comments have on those who they are directed at.
The Eagles said they were taking a stand, and started the hashtag #whenwillitend, after Nic Naitanui called out the supporter and used that hashtag earlier in the week.
We're taking a stand against racism.
We need your support.

AFL House also released the following statement on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon.
