Rock was enjoying the action on his visit to Sydney in a red Swans cap.

The Swans released a photo of the actor and comedian holding a jersey signed by the entire Sydney team.

Channel 7 commentator Brian Taylor couldn’t help himself from making a not-so-subtle reference to The Rock’s famous slap from Will Smith at the Academy Awards earlier this year.

“A famous face here is Chris Rock, of course adults Fame and he now receives a good slap in the face, isn’t he, Chris Rock,” Taylor said.

Alistair Nicholson bravely tried to put his criticism back on track, adding: “In terms of A-listers, I guess he’s just behind Buddy Franklin at No 1 in BT today at the SCG.”

AFL fans can’t believe Taylor made the ice-cold comment on live TV.

The Swans dominated the first half and took a 37-22 lead into the first half.

The Magpies are still within touching distance and the match looks set to go down to the wire in typical Collingwood fashion.
