A large group of Port Adelaide fans have today been caught booing at the funeral of a 25 year-old Adelaide man who was murdered last week.
The service was small with just a few friends and family of the deceased in attendance before approximately 200 angry Port Adelaide fans made their way onto the scene.
The fans had reportedly been out drinking since the Power’s loss to Geelong the night before, where they booed a concussed Scott Selwood for getting back to his feet, and Joel Selwood for being best on ground.
A member of the enraged group spoke to a reporter from The First Reserve about why they were booing.
“Pretty simple really … the bloke called the cops and they went all the way out to his house, but he died before they got there.
“We weren’t booing him, just the fact that he wasted everyone’s time.”
A distraught member of the victim’s family also commented on the incident.
“I’m a little bit confused, if I’m honest.
“We were trying to mourn the loss of our son, so we weren’t exactly expecting a few hundred angry fans to turn up and call us ‘soft’ and ‘gutless’,” she said.
The authorities were called to sort out the group of fans, but before any could arrive they’d angrily marched off toward what looked like a remembrance ceremony for an Australian war hero.
