Zach Tuohy was on the receiving end of a headbutt from Bailey Smith during Geelong's victory over Western Bulldogs last weekend.
In the post-match interview, Tuohy - who has played in the AFL for more than a decade - dismissed the clash as "handbags".
"Emotions were getting the better of both of us," said the Laois man, bearing a clear mark of the headbutt on his forehead.
"I think I was pulling and dragging out of him as much as he was me. There's not much in it.
"When the game gets so close, and given we had a big lead cut back to a small margin, emotions get high. It was all love at the end."
On a segment of Fox Sports show Bounce titled Cut The Crap, which aired at the weekend, they decided to tell viewers what they thought Tuohy really wanted to say.
Though the presenters thought the sketch was hilarious, it was a lazy, and unfunny effort.

"Ah, to be sure, to be sure," said a voice-over in a mock Irish accent.
"Top of the evening to you. What about the craic?
"That bogan, mullet-wearing leprechaun nailed me with an old-fashioned Liverpool kiss.
"The last time I copped the Glasgow handshake like that was when I nicked a bloke's Guinness at Paddy O'Reillys, and he put me on my arse like a sack of spuds.
"Ah, for feck's sake. I'm Zach Tuohy, not Conor McKenna.
"Fair play to the young fella. I'll have to take him out, and get on the lash, and we'll have a whale of a time."
Bailey Smith was given a two-match ban for the headbutt, while Tuohy was given a $1000 fine for 'other misconduct'.
