St Kilda captain Nick Riewoldt has issued an apology to a club staff member, Kelley Musster after an "unpleasant exchange" took place after the Saints 46 point win against the Bombers on Sunday night.

The Herald Sun has reported that Riewoldt was left frustrated after the win, despite a blistering second half when Musster requested that the players take care of their post game requirements, by taking "selfies" with fans at the end of the game.

Former Western Bulldogs captain and Triple M morning breakfast co-host Luke Darcy went into bat for Riewoldt.

"(Riewoldt) is one of the best people I have ever met in my life. They won by 46-points over Essendon and part of the marketing program from what I am reading was to go and take selfies," Luke Darcy said on the Triple M's Hot Breakfast.

"I know for a fact that Nick Riewoldt went and took all the selfies but I would have been exactly the same, when you have a win and you’re a club trying to build and you are out there looking like you’ve won the Grand Final."

"As the captain you go 'Ai, get off the ground boys. Enough. Let’s get in. Let’s sing the song. We’ve got a massive game next week. At the moment we look like it's Hollywood time," Darcy said.
