NORTH Melbourne coach Brad Scott says the club may consider legal action over a journalist's alleged "personal vendetta" against club chairman James Brayshaw.

Scott was furious today over claims that Kangaroos medical services director Steve Saunders had been overruling the club's doctor since 2011.

Brayshaw had earlier criticised the AFL's insistence that club doctors have the final say on medical matters, as the doctors are part-time employees and other sports science and fitness staff are now full-time.

Scott described the comments, by Caroline Wilson on Footy Classified, as a "lie" and "potentially libellous" and said North Melbourne would be seeing an explanation.

"One thing that we are concerned about is that there are false accusations that any one of our staff would overrule a doctor. That is simply a lie," Scott said today.

"It's very dangerous territory when you start making those accusations without any evidence to back it up. I can categorically say that's not true.

"And, unfortunately, when Caroline Wilson speaks these days about North Melbourne most people think that it's just pursuing a personal vendetta that she's had against James Brayshaw for a long time."

Scott said North Melbourne would ask Wilson for an explanation before pursuing legal action.

"I think professional credibility and reputation is everything and when that's brought into question I think you've got a right to defend yourself," he said.

"So I think we'll be seeking explanation of those comments."
