Coach Alastair Clarkson IV - HFC Racism Investigation Discussion

Remove this Banner Ad

Bunch of *le, small-minded cretins.

It should have been handled internally. Once they found out some past players had issues, they should have asked Clarko and others to come in and have a sit down with the players/family and have a heartfelt chat about what their experiences were, how it was perceived from Clarko and the other admin's end. I think most of the issues would have been easily resolved with a conversation, the thing with Rioli is the odd one of the lot but it seems odd that Rioli and his family have a bigger issue with Kennett than they do with Clarkson. Rioli seemed to be quite close up until he retired.

Seeing how they acted together and comments he made about Clarkson seem totally out of character if what they claimed was true, you wouldn't be speaking glowing about someone who did something like that to you. Something weird went down and there should have been a thorough internal investigation. They should have gone with someone who wasn't biased though, it just set it up for failure/disaster from the word go.

But remember! It is not about money. Wasn't that stated by the aggrieved many times?
Well, I'm not sure if that's true. I think it was the Riolis who said that after they co-opted the whole saga towards the end and as part of the AFL investigation. I don't think the Riolis spoke to Russell Jackson at all and I don't know if they were part of Phil Egan's report. They became the show right at the death and the other families fell into line behind them. I suspect the other families would not necessarily agree that they were never interested in financial compensation.

Think that’s a bit harsh tbh. He’s very active in the indigenous space, was on an advisory board supporting the Voice and, fwiw, he’s commissioned a giant mural of an Aboriginal child on his office wall in Cremorne - which you can see when going past on the train. So yeah I get the angst towards Jeff and this’ll be an unpopular opinion but the racism allegation you’ve thrown out there is rubbish.
This is also the same bloke that ran a mental health/suicidal helpline whilst contributing significantly to the demise of the Australian healthcare and public system.

He's a fraud. Only does it for his political gain and personal significance.

If anything, I'm being polite.

Polite eh? I’d say you’re throwing around allegations like confetti with little or no evidence to back them up.
 
Which tram u off Snowy? Obviously not one from the 90’s, Jeff Kennetts policies of trickle down economics, the liberal free market agenda were as near as dammit this state got to a fascist situation, remember Webb Dock? We were one mounted policeman from death on the docks Jeff Kennett can GAGF anti unionist, anti community anti environment, racist dog. I played a key part in his governments defeat a year later and couldn’t be happier about it.

Jeff is that you?

Allegations you say? I thought this was common knowledge? Did I also mention that he ruined Melbourne's public transport system by privatising that too? Then Labor had to fix that mess?

If you genuinely think these are allegations then I can't help you.

Jeff Kennett is still haunting Hawthorn.

And the media know he is always good for a news bite.

What a weight around their neck.

Should've been more concerned when he had a grudge against Clarkson for no reason whatsoever. Major alarm bells.

Mark Robinson: Confusion reigns over possible payouts to Clarkson and Fagan​

The Hawthorn racism investigation started as a sincere and determined truth-telling exercise by Indigenous players and their partners, now a possible payout could prove the system is broken.

AFL: Hawthorn are reportedly set to face a huge financial settlement with Alastair Clarkson following an investigation into racism allegations.

If it’s true that money will be splashed to everyone involved in the Hawthorn racism scandal, the system is shamelessly broken.
This looms as a case of here’s the cash, shut up, move on.
As 3AW’s morning giant Ross Stevenson said on Monday, the Age report that $1 million could be given to Alastair Clarkson and Chris Fagan as compensation was an early nomination for the “comedy festival’’.
Understandably, the Hawks want the saga to end as does the AFL, and more than likely Clarkson, Fagan and fellow footy staffer Jason Burt.
Not sure, though, that’s the case for the affected indigenous players and their families.
They had to be distressed and confused on Tuesday when they read Clarkson and Fagan could receive $1 million.
They have not been told about any plans for compensation for themselves.
They haven’t been told anything.
What started as a sincere and determined truth-telling exercise by indigenous players and their partners – at the request of the Hawthorn Football Club – now presents the coaches as the victims.
How can the Hawks accept this possible outcome?

Wanting it to go away makes a mockery of the initial determination to find the truth and it’s becoming clear the Hawks and the AFL instead want a solution.
Never mind that the claims of racism against the Hawks and the coaching trio are at the Human Rights Commission for a hearing date yet to be made.
Seriously, one question: How can the Hawks and AFL decide on compo when the Human Rights Commission has not determined if human rights abuses occurred?
One person close to the indigenous families said on Monday: “The potential rewarding of the alleged perpetrators is beyond belief.
“The irony should not be lost on anyone, this is a privileged white system.
“This makes no sense. It’s incomprehensible.’’
Another source said: “The coaches are trying to create the impression they were wronged.’’
What a saga it’s been.
Claims were made, claims were denied.
The AFL said there were no “adverse findings’’ after its “independent” investigation into the allegations made in Hawthorn’s cultural safety review.
The AFL’s second investigation, which is looking at the way Hawthorn conducted its review, led by integrity boss Stephen Meade is “ongoing.’’

The suggestion of a possible outcome of the Meade investigation is the Hawks avoid being fined for “governance issues’’ and instead pay out all involved.
What’s curious is that the Meade investigation has not spoken to the players or their partners, or to the author of the cultural safety report Phil Egan, and apparently not to former Hawks chief executive Justin Reeves either.
Former Hawks president Jeff Kennett believes compo payouts to the coaches would be an “abject disgrace.’’
Clearly, Kennett has a horse in the race, but his opinion should not be ignored.
Where’s the proper process?
Why is deal-making always the AFL’s avenue to an outcome?
Why are the Hawks conceding they were in the wrong?
It’s a sorry ordeal which has affected everyone involved, and to levels that no one could possibly fathom other than them, but payouts from an organisation is not the answer.

Compo claims should be heard in court, where truths are told with one hand on the bible – by everyone.
Tuesday’s speculation that the accused could be given $1 million when the indigenous families are yet to tell their stories face-face to anyone other than Egan, is the most perplexing aspect.
Never again will an indigenous player believe the AFL environment is a safe space to tell their truths, if they needed to.
Because either they won’t be heard or they won’t be believed.
It was once described as a sorry saga, but it’s worse than that. It’s now a potential whitewash.

I don’t mind Robbo, but he‘s so out of line here. Where’s the quotes from Clarko and Fagan confirming any of this. When will the media get back to doing their jobs properly. It‘s one lot of unsubstantiated s**t after another. How we ended up in this mess in the first place. One guy had to take mental health leave FFS.

I so over Robbos rant and the media’s s(#*$& house reporting of this whole event ….hope he’s covered his backside legally..as lve had a gutfull of pathetic passing the buck journalism…about time some of them get whacked with a legal notice from Fagan or Clarko.
.as for Kennett….l live in hope that this will eventually land back in his lap and explode spectacularly…… and for his moaning about the club paying…..I think there won’t be any part of me that feels empathetic towards him or that club if they are forced to cough up and then some….reap what you sow Kennett….may it be a curse on your club forever and a day.

He’s not wrong about the AFL’s deal making leaving a bad taste in the mouth. He’s totally wrong that Hawthorn or anyone else needs to pay attention to Jeff Kennett.
 
The Hawks are who they are, whether it's pokies (which they recently sold for serious coin rather than get out of the business), trying to blame those who are no longer at the club for racism issues at the club, or the childish letter to the AFL in regards to the Roos getting Band 1 for McKay.

We are also who we are, and this statement from Sonja when most would rake over the coals (for no other reason than the opportunity to do so) shows exactly who we are. For me, the Roos value good people and their behaviour is reflected in their words and actions.
Its not even that.
The gall of Kennett to ask Nick Holland to send us a cease and desist about Clarko "starting with us" before November 1st 2022. F*** off
All whilst that piece of s**t was working on this hatchet job to get Clarko.

see see summed it up best. Jeff Kennett is a one miserable campaigner. Honestly that man will leave this Earth and not one positive thing will be said. Scumbag

Think that’s a bit harsh tbh. He’s very active in the indigenous space, was on an advisory board supporting the Voice and, fwiw, he’s commissioned a giant mural of an Aboriginal child on his office wall in Cremorne - which you can see when going past on the train. So yeah I get the angst towards Jeff and this’ll be an unpopular opinion but the racism allegation you’ve thrown out there is rubbish.
