A melee instigated by Richmond’s Shane Edwards has cost AFL players $8500.

Edwards was fined $2500 for beginning and partaking in the melee along with teammates Ty Vickery and Jack Riewoldt, each fined $1000.

Fremantle’s Michael Walters and Danyle Pearce were fined $1500 while Nick Suban’s wallet has been lightened by $1000 for his involvement in the first-quarter scuffle.
