ADELAIDE has confirmed skipper Taylor Walker was dealt with over a 'very minor drinking indiscretion' last month.
A club spokesperson confirmed the matter was handled internally at the time and is now well and truly closed.
AFL.com.au understands the indiscretion involved a breach of team standards and had nothing to do with the law.
Walker has found himself under intense scrutiny over the past 12 months following the Crows' Grand Final loss to Richmond.
The Crows captain was at the centre of headlines surrounding defender Jake Lever's exit, and then the ongoing saga around the club's controversial pre-season training camp.
Controversy surrounding the Queensland camp exploded again this week when organisers Collective Mind launched a public defence of their conduct.
On Friday, The Age reported Walker led a delegation to speak with club bosses as the fallout from the camp again threatened to cause more disharmony at West Lakes.
Last year's runners-up missed the finals having recorded 12 wins and 10 losses for the season to finish 12th on the ladder.
The 28-year-old has been skipper since January 2015, when he assumed the role under the tutelage of the late Phil Walsh.
Walker has retained the support of his teammates to lead the club every year since.
