I'm not so sure. Allegations such as a partner undertaking an abortion at the behest of the club shouldn't be too hard to substantiate.

Judging by the Clarkson reaction I suspect the line will be they supported a player in his personal life, supported him to consider his options and he made his mind up and then they supported him through the decision.

Unless someone inside does refute that, I think it will be very hard to find a conclusive decision either way.

If North were to dismiss Clarkson without cause beyond an allegation then he would unquestionably exercise his legal rights and win.

There appears already to be enough circumstantial evidence (if what was quoted in the ABC's report is repeated in the independent investigation by most or all of the accusers) to make Clarkson and Fagan's lives very difficult. North won't have to rely on allegations; the findings of the independent panel will give them a platform to make a sound decision one way or another. I would be surprised if the Kangas haven't already turned their minds to a plan B for their 2023 coach.

There is never a guarantee to win any legal action. Bizarrely Hawthorn are still paying Clarkson's wages.

All those involved have their futures hinging on the finding of the independent investigation.

The AFL will take their findings as gospel and any recommendations they make (if that is part of their purview) will be enforced. To do anything less would bring further disgrace to the AFL and Gil in particular.
