A foot fan claims he was offended by Covid-19 after running on the pitch at Sydney Cricket Stadium after Lance “Buddy” Franklin kicked his 1000th goal.
The tragic AFL Sam Reiner shared a TikTok, which revealed a positive test for Covid, followed by plans to run SCG with his friends.
On Saturday, the Sydney Swans star scored his landmark goal while playing in the fourth quarter against the Geelong Cats, becoming the sixth player in the history of the game to achieve the feat.
The move surprised fans, with thousands of spectators, including Rainer, running on the pitch during a live television broadcast seen by more than 600,000 Australians.
But not everyone believed that Rayner caught Covid in the AFL match.
“I got it from running on the field, not from sitting in the crowd or buying food or alcohol or a toilet or getting on public transportation,” he read a sarcastic comment.
Another footy fan said he was in the same position. However, he did not regret it – and Raynor agreed.
“Getting on the pitch was worth it,” he wrote.
Others called Covid’s diagnosis “BuddyCron,” to which Raynor replied, “I have a fever.”
Covid cases in NSW have been growing steadily in recent weeks. On Monday, three days after the game, NSW recorded 21,374 new cases, with a seven-day average of 21,029.
The Sydney Swans were also hit with a fear of close contact in the days leading up to Saturday’s game. The Swans had also closed their training sessions in the media to mitigate the transmission risks.
On Wednesday, the team confirmed that there had been “one or two close contacts”, meaning some players were not available or selected, co-manager Dane Rampe said.
“As far as I know everyone is ready to go, but as it happens every morning, it is a wait-and-see approach, especially in Sydney right now,” he said.
“We are doing RAT [rapid antigen tests] every morning and it seems that every two days there is someone who has close contact and needs to be isolated for a day or two. That has been quite stable for the last two months. “
