North Melbourne coach Brad Scott admits he made a mistake in claiming that AFL umpires had a free kick bias against Lindsay Thomas.

The league has issued Scott with a please explain and will fine him heavily after his verbal blunder following the Kangaroos' Friday night loss to Hawthorn.

Within 12 hours, North issued an unreserved apology and Scott said on Monday even if there was a basis to the claim, he should have gone directly to the AFL rather than airing it in the post-game media conference.
