Tom Browne has provided a statement given to him by Swans Chairman Andrew Pridham after the fallout of Lance Franklin’s booing at the MCG on Sunday.
In a statement provided to Tom Browne, Pridham came to the defence of his player.
“We’ve seen this before and too many people have learned nothing,” Tom read.
“Booing of any player unrelated to an incident during the game is mindless and an act of group bullying.
“20 years ago, if there was a fight in public people would stand around and cheer it, today people will step in and stop it.
“The best solution is for fans to tell anyone booing in circumstances such as yesterday to stop. Positive group action is the best way to stop bad group action.”
Swans board member Michael O’Loughlin has spoken out, as well as coach John Longmire in yesterday’s post-match press conference.
