Bulldogs star Bailey Smith has revealed details of his banter with a supporter he “wouldn’t want to meet on the street”.

Bailey Smith says it was just a little fun as he exchanged nods and winks with an MCG spectator during the Western Bulldogs’ big win over Collingwood.

Smith was also seen laughing following a sled from a Collingwood fan as he lined up for the goal near the boundary from outside the 50m arc in the second quarter .

A smiling Smith responded by sticking his tongue out at his heckler.

Replays on Fox Footy showed the fan giving Smith a bite to eat which caused onlookers seated near him to laugh.

Smih spoke of the moment in the sheds after the game when he appeared to reveal the fan sled was about ‘the Gold Coast’.

Smith was involved in an incident on the Glitter Strip last year that led to a man filing a formal complaint with police. The police ultimately dismissed the complaint and the club took no disciplinary action against Smith.

Smith was still smiling about the fan interaction after the game, mocking the tattooed supporter.

“I don’t want to see him on the street. He looked like a scary boy,” Smith told Channel 7 with a laugh.

“But I like this interaction with the crowd.”

When asked what the fan said, Smith replied, “I don’t think you wanted to know. He was just cracking up. It’s good. It was the Gold Coast. I had a little fun up there, but here goes. This is very fun.

Seven commentator Matthew Richardson described Smith’s tongue movement as a “Gene Simmons” movement. He also referenced the Kiss frontman when he described the fan’s face tattoo as “Gene Simmons face paint.”

Smith also revealed another hilarious moment during the match when former teammate Patrick Lipinksi pulled off one of the oldest tricks in the book.

Smith still describes Lipinski as one of his best friends, despite being traded to Collingwood last year.

Smith said Friday night he coughed the ball at Lipinski on instinct when the Magpies star asked him to pass it.

“It was exciting playing against Pat Lipinski, he’s one of my best friends,” Smith said.

“There was a moment in the third quarter where he called for the ball and I got it and gave it right to him. And I was like, ‘Oh, mate.

“I missed playing with him, but obviously it’s good to see him doing his thing in Collingwood.”
