    As usual, when it comes to these issues, an allegation is assumed to be proof of guilt.

    Seeing it was an ABC report and no other side has been allowed to air yet I would be very careful at calling anyone a racist just yet. The ABC's record is appalling to say the least on fact and truth!

    Clarkson and Fagan have been hung out to dry, here. They've not even been interviewed by the ABC report journalists.
    And every talking head is not protecting their rights to be presumed innocent at this stage. Disgusting.

    Eddie Betts should have waited for the conclusions of the investigation before saying what he said. He is always one to promote 'rascism' at any opportunity. One can't act as judge jury and executioner at the drop of a hate every time there's an allegation. He has a way of pouring fuel on the fire at every opportunity. The person I admire is Syd Jackson who was colour blind and only referred to people by name not skin colour. This case is about two ex Hawthorn players who have made allegations against 3 coaches. Period! It has nothing to do with race. The accusers and you the msm decided it was about race.
    You've taken sides before the conclusion of the investigation. Hawthorn could sue. I wouldn't blame them.

    Why ? ..... nothing has been proven....
    What happens if this is proven to be false ....an apology and reparations perhaps to the accused??? I bet there will be silence and I bet the ones so vocal will have to find something now

    He only makes the complaint after he retires. Obviously things weren't so bad that he would risk losing his playing contract.

    Hopefully they will look into allegations of white players being racially abused

      No they won't do that because apparently only a black man can be mistreated.

    What about the white players also asked to minimise distractions from families and girlfriends? This is as old as professional sport.
    This reverse racism crap is making us despise the sooks that can't cope with real life even more. Life-long professional victims, whilst hoovering up the money on offer.

    lol here we go. Rather than doing what all normal people did in years gone by, we now have to be perpetually, eternally offended at every single little thing.

    I would find it hard to believe that only indigenous players have had these experiences, the investigation should widen to all players, if this only happens to indigenous players, then racism is a valid accusation!

      You are right. But the white players have the intellect to knuckle down, suck it up and realise what they need to do to win finals.
      And be life-long professional victims, whilst hoovering up the money on offer.
