Richmond and the Western Bulldogs have been sanctioned by the AFL

THE last two premiers have been fined by the AFL, after they failed to provide the league with up-to-date whereabouts of their players. Richmond was fined a total of $7500, while the Western Bulldogs were fined $3,000. Under AFL rules clubs will be sanctioned if they fail to provide accurate information as to where all their listed players are — at all times — for drug testing purposes. The Tigers were fined $2,500 for not providing up to date whereabouts information for one of their players during the post-season travel period. The additional $5,000 was from a suspended sanction arising from another breach in September. The Bulldogs were also fined for failing to tell the AFL where one of their players were travelling post-season.
