Players fined over chicken "sex" video

Players fined over chicken "sex" video
By Julian Linden – Thu Apr 9, 7: 40 am ET

SYDNEY (Reuters) – Two leading Australian Rules players have been fined A$5,000 (2,428 pounds) each for their part in making an offensive video showing a rubber chicken simulating sex with a chicken carcass.

North Melbourne's Adam Simpson and Daniel Pratt were each fined by their club after admitting they were among eight players who made the video last year.

The video, which was posted on the internet this week but subsequently removed, has been described as tasteless and offensive to women and drew strong criticism from the sport's governing body the AFL.

The North Melbourne club decided not to suspend the players but instead fined them for breaching the team's code of conduct.

"It was a foolish, misguided prank that is clearly offensive. We're embarrassed and apologetic for that as a football club," North Melbourne chief executive Eugene Arocca told reporters.

"We're going to take the opportunity to move forward, educate our players further about their responsibilities as players and as members of the community."
