PORT Adelaide Football Club will investigate claims an Adelaide Oval spectator racially abused Richmond player Bachar Houli during Sunday‘s elimination final victory over the Tigers.

Reports linked Houli — the AFL‘s first devout Muslim — as the victim of a taunt that labelled him a “terrorist”.

A woman told Channel 7 that fans on the hill yelled to Houli: “Go back home you terrorist ... back to ISIS.”

It was not confirmed on Tuesday night whether the taunt came from a Port Adelaide supporter or member.

“The Port Adelaide Football Club is aware of a spectator complaint from Sunday‘s first elimination final at the Adelaide Oval alleging Richmond player Bachar Houli was racially vilified by a fellow spectator,” the Power said in a statement.

“The club is still seeking more details but understands the police were informed about the matter at the time.”

The taunt was reported by another fan to an anti-social behaviour hotline, promoted at every AFL venue.

The abuse claim is an unwanted distraction for the Power, which charged into a cut-throat semi-final against Fremantle at Patersons Stadium in Perth on Saturday night with a 57-point thrashing of the Tigers on Sunday.


His arms are ripped.

That is one intense looking beard.

Not a surprise. Happens every week.


It's good that this stuff is being reported after so many years of being swept under the rug. 

That is one intense looking beard.


Thats what I would have heckled him for  "Where's your axe?" or "where's your fixie?"

He looks roided up in that photo. Massive arms!

I think the fact the Port bogans knew who ISIS is should be commended. They would be lucky to have a collective brain cell that works.


Hopefully they are caught and banned (thought they will just then jump the fence and go back to old habits).


Fark Port

He looks roided up in that photo. Massive arms!

PEDs!! Call in ASADA*

“An unwanted distraction for the Power”
