North Melbourne can't take a trick. Their board must be in full blown meltdown mode.

I also can't imagine this would help Yze in his pursuit of a senior role, although there is absolutely nothing to suggest he was at all involved. It's just the optics really. 

That's right, think everyone's future is frozen until the AFL does their own investigation.

I mean, the ABC would have had to cover off a lot of things to get this to the public. The implications on them would be enormous if it’s found to be untrue.

I don’t doubt that the accused would try and deny it, because it will ruin them

Having worked with the ABC, this has to be water tight...

Russell Jackson is no scrub either and does his research. Broke the story on the treatment of Robbie Muir during his St Kilda years. 

He's a brilliant journalist.

Surely they must have some sort of behavioural exit clause in their contract? Demonland lawyers on here know what are likely standard inclusions?

I think it's less about the payout, which I am sure the AFL will cover, and more about the fact that they finally landed what they thought was a master coach.

Now they will need to start again.

"Brisbane is considering whether to temporarily stand down senior coach Chris Fagan pending the results of an investigation into allegations of treatment of Indigenous players at Hawthorn.

Former Hawks staffer Fagan has been devastated and blindsided by the allegations and he has told he has no knowledge of the meetings that have been alleged by former Hawthorn indigenous players.

Those allegations include a player being told he and his partner should terminate a pregnancy.

But as the Lions work through the fallout the Herald Sun understands one possibility is standing him down until the investigation is complete and the findings returned."

The people accused will just deny it, so it becomes a case of one word against another.

There is surely a mountain of evidence here. Why would Hawthorn themselves launch an investigation into their own culture if they didn't think anything was wrong?

Doesn't matter what's in the contract.  North's problem is that they thought they had secured a great coach in dire times and suddenly they might not.

This is very hard to comprehend. You’d have to wonder what this means for the football club in terms of how it recovers. This kind of thing casts doubt over its ongoing survival. What kind of an institution behaves like this? What possible rehabilitation measures can it take to redeem itself or regain confidence that it can be entrusted with the development of young men. I wouldn’t want my children drafted to the Hawks and I’m sure many others wouldn’t either.

Needless to say, Clarkson and Fagan are finished. Not sure about the other coaches at the time but if I was the MFC I’d be asking very hard questions of Yze.

Goes without saying the allegations need to be proved but the sources are impeccable.

Possibly but how can you prove that Clarkson said to get an abortion?

But you can adduce evidence that lends the claim credible, for example by bringing forward other who were told that at the time.

My understanding is that the investigation was launched by Hawthorn after the Jeff Kennett and Shannyn Ah Sam-Rioli issue was published.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
