BITS AFL games called off, following Raglan altercation

UPDATE 2.15pm:

BOYNE Island Tannum Sands Saints AFL Club president Andrew McMahon said they have to take responsibility for their actions and would accept a forced forfeiture of this weekend's matches.

"The message sent to everyone in football is if you make the wrong decision whether you are 12 or 52 you are responsible for your actions," he said.

"You do the wrong thing you put your hand up and take responsibility."

Earlier:

THERE will be no Aussie rules played in Boyne Island this week as the president AFL Capricornia has forced Boyne Island Tannum Sands to forfeit all matches from juniors to seniors as a result of an incident in Raglan on Saturday.

AFL Capricornia president John Round said the behaviour of some of the BITS players had brought the game into disrepute.

"We won't cop that crap," he said.

"Frankly we have worked awfully hard to make this a family sport and we're not going to let this incident destroy that.

"The message is no football there this week and that's the price you pay."

BITS have been notified of AFL Capricornia's decision.
