The AFL will launch an investigation into Collingwood after footage caught a star player in a 'silly' pre-game act.
The Magpies started off brilliantly against the Swans as they dominated Saturday's opening quarter at the SCG, grabbing an 18-point lead, before they were humbled in a 30-point defeat.
'WHAT A JOKE': AFL world explodes over 'moronic' travesty
Buckley's team sit 16th on the ladder, with clashes to come against premiership contenders Port Adelaide, Geelong and Melbourne during the next four rounds.
But Collingwood are dealing with a more immediate issue after having to respond to footage, which showed star Jordan de Goey grabbing the rear of teammate Isaac Quaynor in the change room.
The AFL are investigating the incident, according to Fox Footy, and four-time Premiership winner Jordan Lewis labelled the act "silly".
“It was silly and the players I think know there are cameras in the room so it would get highlighted throughout the week,” he told Fox Footy's Saturday Stretch.
“But it’s just another lesson players are being watched and need to behave appropriately."
Collingwood deny any 'inappropriate' act
However, Collingwood have stood by De Goey and said they did not find the act inappropriate.
“We believe appropriate change room behaviour is important,” a spokesperson told the publication.
“In this instance, neither the players nor the club believe inappropriate behaviour has occurred.”
Despite Collingwood denying any wrongdoing, the AFL will reportedly investigate.
Last year, two Tigers players Nick Vlastuin and Jayden Short apologised to Mabior Chol after footage of the pair groping the genitals of their teammate during the post-match team songs went viral.
Vlastuin and Short copped huge backlash for the incident.
Chol said he took no offence.
Despite the incident on Saturday, Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley lamented the way his side lost control of the contest after quarter-time.
"We came here to win. We felt like we had the plan to do so and I think it probably showed early in the game that what we put in place was going to trouble Sydney," Buckley said.
"We're disappointed for not being able to stick at it.
"The reality is we had some players who dropped away.
"That is going to happen at times, especially with young boys.
"We had the right plan, right attitude and I thought out work-rate was consistent throughout the game. We just dropped away with our execution."
