COSTLY TWEETS: Australian Football League's Carlton was fined $7,500 by the AFL for tweets criticising the umpiring in their loss to West Coast in Perth. Marc Murphy, Jeremy Laidler and Jarrad Waite, all injured players, were responsible for the tweets. Carlton head coach Brett Ratten was also "formally warned for his post-match comments" as he suggested the opposition had been given "favourable treatment from the umpires" (THE AUSTRALIAN, 6/20).
