Daniher causes anger with 'disrespectful' celebration

Essendon star Joe Daniher has angered fans with a controversial goal celebration against the Crows.

After scoring his third goal in the second quarter on Saturday night, Daniher went a bit overboard with his celebrations and jumped on top of Adelaide’s Rory Atkins, rufflng his opponents hair in the process.

The overzealous display left fans fairly fuming on social media.

However a number of fans were quick to point out that Daniher and Atkins are actually former teammates.

The youngsters played together in junior footy, and some fans saw the incident as a simple act of fun.

Daniher's first half display was the only shining light for Essendon as Adelaide showed why they're leading the comp.

The Crows left Essendon's finals hopes in tatters, downing the Bombers by 43 points.
