West Coast Eagles’ player Liam Ryan was targeted with racial comments by trolls on an online post over the weekend, but the AFL community has rallied together to support the Eagles forward.

“People don’t understand what that word means to indigenous people, it’s more than name calling,” Kennedy told 6PR Breakfast.
