Bulldogs chief executive Todd Greenberg says there will be an internal investigation after team members hurled sexist abuse at journalists and were seen urinating on Belmore Sports Ground during Mad Monday celebrations.

Channel Nine has aired footage of unidentified team members, possibly players or officials, yelling out to reporters from a partially opened window at the ground yesterday.

"There's some ladies here to stick their heads in your pants," one person was heard to yell.

Another said: "Suck me off you dumb dog.’’

Another man was heard to yell: "I wanna go and punch you in the face."

News Ltd also reported some players urinated on the oval in full view of the gathered media.

Last night Mr Greenberg tweeted: "I spoke with the Ch 9 journalist today and apologised on behalf of the club. That's not how we do our business. Will follow up internally!!"

The players had gathered to mark the end of the season, with many dressing up in cartoon character outfits.
