Carlton member Rob Acquaro has accepted the apology of Melbourne wunderkind Clayton Oliver after their heated exchange at the MCG on Sunday. Oliver, 19, fronted reporters outside the Demons' AAMI Park base on Monday afternoon to apologise for an alleged threat to kill the fan during the second quarter of the Dees' eight-point win. Acquaro - a passionate Blues fan - said he would move on from the incident. "I&nbsp;accept the apology from Clayton Oliver," Acquaro told Fairfax Media.&nbsp; "The most important thing here is that players have to be mindful of their words and actions as there will always be young kids sitting in the crowd." It is not expected the AFL or Melbourne will act further on the incident. Oliver&nbsp;accepted that he had acted inappropriately following a sledge from Acquaro. "I shouldn't have reacted the way I did, and I apologise for that, taking polish off the team win. Moving forward obviously I'll learn from this and it won't happen ever again," Oliver said. Acquaro's version of events had initially differed&nbsp;to that of Oliver. The supporter&nbsp;claimed&nbsp;that he called Oliver "soft" and made incidental contact with the Demon when Oliver chased a ball to the boundary line, before Oliver turned back around to Acquaro, who was sitting in the front row, allegedly telling Acquaro that "if you f------&nbsp;touch me again I'll kill you." It's understood that when questioned about the incident,&nbsp;Oliver had at first&nbsp;claimed&nbsp;Acquaro called Oliver a "weak c---" but Oliver later accepted Acquaro hadn't sworn. Melbourne football manager Josh Mahoney said Oliver had done the wrong thing. "Clayton let his emotions get the better of him and should not have reacted in the manner that he did," Mahoney said. "In this instance, Clayton has heard a sledge from that general section of the crowd and has reacted directly to the fan in question in an unprofessional manner. "Clayton acknowledges that the man in question did not use a profanity and accepts his fault in the situation. As a club, we apologise for the offence caused and Clayton understands this should not occur again." The Demons said players needed to exercise greater self-restraint. "We have spoken to Clayton and the entire playing group regarding their interaction with the crowd and that no positives come out of any immediate response. "If the player feels that he was vilified in any way, there is a process to report that to the AFL and have it investigated." One of football's most promising young midfielders, Oliver recently became engaged in war-of-words on Twitter with Test cricketer Damien Martyn over an incident in which Oliver was accused of accentuating contact made by West Coast's Will Schofield during a round 14 game. Oliver was not cited by the match review panel. Carlton member Rob Acquaro wants an apology from Melbourne over an incident in which teenage midfielder Clayton Oliver threatened him at the MCG on Sunday. It's understood Acquaro spoke to both the Blues and the AFL on Monday, with the Demons planning to follow suit. Acquaro's version of events differs to that of Oliver. The supporter claims that he called Oliver "soft" and made incidental contact with the Demon when Oliver chased a ball to the boundary line during the second quarter, before Oliver turned back around to Acquaro, who was sitting in the front row, making a strongly-worded threat towards the supporter. It's understood Oliver claims Acquaro used considerably stronger language. Acquaro spoke with Melbourne Cricket Club security on Sunday after the incident was caught on camera. On Sunday evening Demons coach Simon Goodwin said the club would wait to gather more information before elaborating publicly on the incident.
