Fleming suspended for three weeks

Richmond tagger Tim Fleming won't play again this season after being suspended for three weeks by the AFL Tribunal for striking St Kilda's Nick Riewoldt.

Fleming told the tribunal he decided to plead guilty after watching the incident on video.

But he said the strike, which forced Riewoldt from the ground for more than two quarters of Saturday night's game at Telstra Dome, wasn't deliberate.

Fleming has apologised to Riewoldt in writing.

Richmond will not appeal the three-week ban.
