The AFL Players' Association and Adelaide will investigate why vision of Ricky Henderson's penis went to air during television coverage of Saturday's match in Brisbane.

The Crows have appealed to media not to republish footage or stills of Henderson which was shown during Fox Footy's coverage of the Gabba fixture.

But stills of the incident, in which Henderson's penis was visible as he adjusted his shorts in the change rooms, are being distributed on the internet and social media.

“The Adelaide Football Club asks that out of respect for the privacy of player Ricky Henderson, media outlets do not publish the footage or stills from halftime,” the Crows said in a statement yesterday.

“The club is disappointed that this vision went to air and is currently investigating.”

Ian Prendergast, AFLPA's general manager of player relations, expressed his concern about the issue on Twitter.

“Disappointing the footage of Ricky Henderson aired. We'll follow up to find out why. Cameras in place on basis player privacy respected,” the former Carlton utility posted on Sunday.
