Rock was wearing a red Swans cap and was enjoying the action on his visit to Sydney.
The Swans posted a photo of the actor and comedian holding a jersey signed by the whole Sydney team.
Channel 7 commentator Brian Taylor couldn’t help himself, making a not-so-subtle reference to when Rock was famously slapped by Will Smith at the Academy Awards earlier this year.
“Famous face here Chris Rock, of course of Grow Ups fame and he just accepts a slap really well these days doesn’t he, Chris Rock,” Taylor said tongue-in-cheek.
Alister Nicholson valiantly tried to get the commentary back on track, adding: “I reckon in terms of A-listers he’s just behind Buddy Franklin in terms of No. 1 at the SCG today BT.”
AFL fans couldn’t believe Taylor had made ice cold remark on live TV.
The Swans controlled the first half and took a 37-22 lead into the main break.
The Magpies are still in touching distance and the match appears set to go down to the wire in typical Collingwood fashion.
