AFL football operations manager Adrian Anderson said the league chose to impose the financial sanction on the Tigers, as head coach Damien Hardwick had also approached the umpires during a recent game.
The latest incident was brought to the AFL's attention after it was included in a report by the umpires.
"All match-day staff are required to adhere to a clear set of guidelines in relation to their conduct towards umpires," said Anderson.
"It is important that the AFL continues to take a zero tolerance approach in dealing with umpire abuse, as a negative match-day environment is still the primary factor impacting on the recruitment and retention of umpires in community football across Australia."
