Senior judge criticises Hawthorn racism inquiry

One of Victoria’s most senior and experienced former judges has criticised the unfairness of the process Alastair Clarkson, Chris Fagan and Jason Burt were submitted to by Hawthorn and the AFL’s racism investigation.

David Ashley KC, retired justice of the Court of Appeal of the Victorian Supreme Court, questioned the absence of detailed allegations against the trio and the protracted nature of the AFL inquiry.

Ashley is also chair of St Kilda’s integrity oversight committee. This week the AFL held its annual meeting with the chairs of every club’s integrity oversight committee and the Hawthorn situation became a topic among the many of the attendees.

Clarkson, Fagan and Burt have strenuously denied the allegations and have said they look forward to clearing their names.

‘An iconic moment’: Adam Goodes war cry immortalised in bronze

Adam Goodes’ Indigenous war cry has been immortalised by the Sydney Swans in a larger-than-life bronze sculpture at the players’ entrance at the club’s new home.

Almost eight years to the day since Goodes performed the dance that changed the course of his devastating final season, the man who has performed more times on the SCG than any other sportsman returned to the club to witness the unveiling of a commemoration he initially resisted.

In a relatively private ceremony shrouded in secrecy, Swans bosses and the club’s Indigenous past players gathered outside the Royal Hall of Industries around the corner from the SCG for the unveiling on Friday at 1pm.
