    Bluemour Melting Pot XXIX

    Hmm. Tom Browne you say. Let me think. Hmm. No, no legs, unlikely to be a kernel of truth to it . It could be that we might have to tighten the belt if we were to get Cerra. Goes without saying. Wouldn't imagine that we would cut our nose off to spite our face with JSOS or Dow. Bloke makes...

    Opinion The 'Carlton related stuff that doesn't need it's own thread' thread Part 2

    Allegedly not, however he gets $900k from the Hawks if he doesn't coach. I'd imagine that if he did coach whatever he received from his new club would come off the hawthorn bill. Not sure whether he could take a back ended contract and get (say) $500k next year and then $1.2 mill in 2023 &...

    Opinion The 'Carlton related stuff that doesn't need it's own thread' thread Part 2

    Caro's exact words were "I just dont believe that he would leave Melbourne next year and if he does coach again next year it would be at Carlton- nowhere else "

    Senior 4. Lochie O'Brien

    My take on LOB for what it's worth is that if we are going well and creating lots of opportunities then he can be a real weapon. My concern is when things aren't going that well . He hasn't shown the capacity to be able to stand firm and turn things around yet. And unfortunately playing for...

    News Club to launch external review of football department!

    Same made up article, same Murdoch pike of junk but if possible planted even further to the right than the H/S. Hard to report on actual findings when there are none as yet..

    It was really with even a simple amount of consideration. The report has not been completed or written up yet. If you accept that as the truth then clearly the article is completely fabricated.

    Apologies but I can't find any mention of this amnesty that you mention. It seems that the cap was cut by well over $3mill towards the end of July 2020. By august1 we had to notify all assistant coaches as to what we were doing for 2021. Some like Rocca amongst others were let go. My...

    Charlie Curnow - The Return!

    Charlie interviewed on 10 news tonight. Hopeful of playing finals. Very thankful for the support of David Teague throughout his rehab. Keen to point out how important it was for him to play this year for his mental health rather than be put on ice. It was also mentioned that Eddie was a...

    From all accounts we were not in a position to make changes to our assistant coaches this year due to the reduction in the soft cap. The review wasn't called specifically to look at the football department but all facets of our football operations both on and off the field. If Lloyd was the...

    They are not like David and Stephen kernahan. Whether someone is a good football manager can't solely be judged by wins/losses because if it was Lloyd would now be officially as good as Neil Balme. My point, as always, is that people on here have no idea of whether someone off field is good at...

    Its hard to believe that there would be much difference in capacity between Lloyd at Geelong and Lloyd at Carlton. Maybe one has a more mature list and therefore winning more games. Might be the only difference?

    Opinion The 'Carlton related stuff that doesn't need it's own thread' thread Part 2

    Very interesting article on Luc Longley on abc.com.au which deals with his career and being left out of the last dance doco. Part of it explains how the bulls were treated like rock stars during their threepeat. Luc used to have to use an alias at hotels. The two names he used were Norman...

    It's funny isn't it. Mike Sheehan (like or dislike) seemed at least to be reasonably ethical. Tony on the other hand appears to be completely unconcerned or ignorant about ethics.

    Game Day Around The Grounds Rounds 16 - 20

    I was there for both. The saints game at Waverley - thought that we would be goalless - we were that bad. Might have been Jimmy Cook that kicked our first. The general consensus at the time was that we would be lucky to win another game. Lucky that there was no bigfooty back then.

    Preview RND 21 - Carlton v GC Suns Sat 7th August 1.45PM @ Etihad

    Not really. We should have Harry and Charlie playing which means that we don't have to take Cripps and Matt Kennedy away from the guts to compensate.
