‘Protip: hiring a mobility scooter and buying a $17 standing ticket at Etihad gets you in a $70 seats’, the post read.

The image includes a sign that warns guests that the area is reserved for ‘mobility impaired patrons.’

And several Reddit users were quick to slam the supporter for their blatant lack of morals. 

‘That’s just so f***ing wrong’, one user wrote.

‘Letting go of human decency: priceless’, another comment read. 

‘You disgust me’, bluntly followed. 

General admission tickets at the Etihad are $25, however tickets can reach $70 depending on their view. 

Essendon defeated Fremantle in a 107-92 victory as they managed to qualify for this year’s finals. 

Other Reddit users were less than impressed with the supporter's tactics and slammed his behaviour online
