FREMANTLE midfielder Ryan Crowley continues to insist he didn't pinch North Melbourne star Brent Harvey and says he's bitterly disappointed that the AFL Tribunal didn't believe him.

Crowley was fined $1200 on Tuesday night after the Tribunal jury preferred the evidence of Harvey.

The Kangaroos veteran told the jury that Crowley pinched him repeatedly during Sunday's game in Perth.

When Crowley's advocate Seamus Rafferty put it to Harvey that the Dockers tagger didn't pinch him once, Harvey replied: "You're right. It didn't happen once. It happened about 300 times."
Freo's general manager of football operations Chris Bond said in a statement that the Dockers would not appeal the decision despite the club's disappointment in the outcome.
"We were surprised and disappointed by the outcome last night but all along we have supported Ryan and we will continue to support him," Bond said.
Even though the charge will stand, Crowley maintains his position that he did not pinch Brent Harvey during Sunday's match.
"I just want to reiterate my statement to the Tribunal hearing, where I am bound to tell the truth, that I never intentionally, accidentally or in any way pinched Brent Harvey at any stage throughout the game," Crowley said in a statement.
