It was the most controversy the league has seen in recent memory and it came at a crucial time of the season.
In the final round of the season, Lake Nash took on Rhinos on the weekend however Tigers refused to take the field for the opening game and forfeited their game against Rovers.
Tigers captain Mitch Godfrey said that after an incident in their previous game, the club issued several complaints towards AFL Queensland which went unheard.
Tiger hierarchy then decided not to play their final round game against the Rovers.
Tigers captain Mitch Godfrey said the issue was alarming and AFL Queensland needed to listen.
"We were left with no choice but to put in a complaint about the other team over a few incidents that took place. Some of these concerns were not met by AFL Queensland so we decided to send a message by not playing at all," Godfrey said.
AFL Queensland issued a statement saying on Monday August 19 AFL Mt Isa were advised in writing by the Tigers "of an alleged verbal abuse incident involving a player and spectator at their game against Lake Nash Football Club on Saturday August 17".
"AFL Mt Isa sought the support of AFL Queensland to address the concerns raised," they said.
"AFL Mt Isa and AFL Queensland attempted to contact the Lake Nash Football Club to investigate the concerns, however due to the remoteness and logistics of the Lake Nash community there were challenges in reaching them.
"AFL Queensland and AFL Mt Isa are working closely with all parties involved to address the concerns. Measures will be put in place to ensure players and spectators can attend games in an environment that is safe and welcoming to all."
Godfrey said Tigers were satisfied the matter was being addressed and they would will take the field for their semi-final this weekend.
"I spoke with AFL Queensland this week and I am pretty happy that the issue will be sorted," he said.
"We are feeling pretty confident about taking down the Rhinos, especially after having a week off so all the boys are extra fresh,"
"Its going to be a cracking game and a good weekend of footy," he said.
Rhinos centre Jeremy Campbell was also confident.
"I think if we have a full team and can play the full four quarters than we definitely have a shot at beating the Tigers," Campbell said.
Campbell was not all that worried about last weeks loss against Lake Nash 88 points to 62 despite leading by a point at quarter time.
"There's no point getting down on ourselves over the loss, we have to concentrate on the finals now and remain positive," he said.
"I thought we held with Lake Nash for pretty long, but gave them too many easy chestnuts in front of our goal which lead to a lot of goals," he said.
This weeks finals games:
12:30pm Tigers (3) vs Rhinos (4) elimination game.
2:30pm Buffs (1) vs Lake Nash (2) winner to go straight into grand final.
