A fan in particular was so excited that he climbed on a telegraph pole and jumped around 7 pm on a roof on the corner of Lennox and Swan Street.
Once on the roof, he set fire to a sign supporting the giants, with a large picture of Toby Greene's face, saying: & # 39; Love ya oats, Uncle-Toby & # 39 ;.
The man, wearing distinctive glasses, was cheered on by the crowd while holding the burning sign.
According to The Herald Sun., violence broke out when the man climbed back to the telegraph pole where he was met by the police.

Greene was slammed by fans during the game on Saturday after he seemed to be gushing a Richmond player in the opening quarter.

& # 39; Dirty when they come. No surprises, & # 39; a fan wrote online.
Greene does not seem to have learned his lesson after being sidelined by the tribunal for a week after the Giant's semi-final win against the Brisbane Lions.
He imposed a fine of $ 7,500 for being found guilty of serious misconduct for an ugly incident with Bulldogs star Marcus Bontempelli during the game.
The tribunal decided that Greene had made unreasonable contact with the eye zone of Lion's midfielder Lachie Neale.
During the celebration on Swan Street, fans also lit a GWS scarf while fans kept singing about Greene.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Victoria Police for comments.
