Hawthorn Racism Review - Unbelievable

This is unbelievable. Shows the disgraceful win at any cost mentality in the AFL. Clarkson, Fagan and Burt should be deregistered from the AFL immediately and barred for life.

Hard to believe that Chris Fagan would be involved with this alleged behaviour - maybe he was under the Clarkson spell as well or just too scared to call it out - wasn't Luke Beveridge at Hawthorn (The Family Club) around the same time? Has Kennett had anything to say about it?

Where is that foghorn Kennett.

Has an authority on all things AFL except his own club !

It was his (Kennett's) treatment of Cyril Rioli and his partner that started this review - I bet they didn't expect this to come out of it - and would it have been kept quiet except for the ABC revelations?

Even if nothing is proven, I think the damage is done. 

The allegations if true are absolutely disgusting. 

North Melbourne might be on the lookout for another coach. 

I think Clarkson and Fagan will be unlikely to coach again.

Hard to see much coming from this investigation unless one of the accused breaks ranks and admits to something, and I doubt that will happen. It will be two sides telling two different stories with Clarkson and co being coached by their legal people as to what to say and how to spin things, and will end up being their word against theirs.

Yep how about we settle down a bit only one side has told their story and the not guilty till proven so rule should apply!

AFAIC this will all be about money to paid to the alleged victims and that is why the Layers are already involved but if it backfires then all the wrongly accused would be able to sue for defamation.A long way to go!
