An unimpressed footy fan has been caught casually reading a book in the stands during an AFL game where her team was thrashed.

The St Kilda Saints 111-point loss against the Western Bulldogs on Saturday night was going so badly by the fourth quarter the woman was driven to distraction. 

Even coming equipped with reading glasses, she wore her team’s scarf as she turned her attention to the literature while other fans were spotted yawning around her.

‘The Saints fans are starting to read some books now,’ the commentator sighed.

While she was reading The Reading Group by Elizabeth Noble there the score was only at 115 to 26, meaning the Bulldogs would still go on to score another 18 points. 

Fox Footy tweeted the footy with the caption: ‘Definitely more interesting than this game’.

‘The Saints must be fun watching!,’ one wrote.
