    Ye olden times, but I can tell you some stories from the Whitten oval from Libba snr, Dimma, Hose and co's days, it's why the 80's and early 90's will always be the greatest time for the AFL as a the lunatics didn't just run the place but actively tried to build things of sheer wonder.

    I am scarred for life from that time as a single digit person. Scarred.

    These days I wouldn't think it's anything more than simple restructuring, if there's anything sinister about removals of people from organisations, there will be somebodies who will know and somebodies who will run to something to make it public knowledge. At least in the Victorian market where AFL is the primary sport of interest and has been for a a century and a bit.

    From what the media tells us the western bulldogs seems to have a lot of infighting going on

    Also the article makes it sound like the dogs wanted to keep him and are pissed he left.

    Huge changes those ones at WB. Basically the two main ones who got them Bont and co are now gone. Meanwhile, Sydney continue to get stronger. Dalrymple a huge get for them.

    Well yeah the Dogs would be pissed, they planned on him being there, the restructuring would be at Sydney and they identified him as a talent and we all know how cashed up they are to offer contracts. Say you've been at a company for a decade and get a new offer at a company that does the same thing only on more coin. You'd take it generally, especially if you think you've done good and do different/ better elsewhere. As the Dogs you get pissed and then move to fill the void, it's the nature of the business.

    McCarthy was also technically OOC at the time of going to GWS, open argument if you consider if it was by design or his choice, but simply creates a narrative in the article that the Dogs have issues with management retention, when really this isn't a Libba jnr going southern Asian and on a bender type of "Dogs have issues ZOMG" sort of story.

    Because ******* Sydney need more help in that department. I couldn't understand why someone like Collingwood didn't go after him.

    The noise out of the Dogs has been of dysfunction and in fighting and factional wars since the wheels started to fall of last year.

    If I recall correctly McCarthy had a falling out with the footy boss and had a big disagreement with the president on stringer.

    It sounded like the list management team had to relinquish control on what happened with stringer

    Anyone notice the article about former Essendon player Andrew Lovett in the Hun today?
    Gone downhill big time.
    Gambling and recreational drug addiction, homelessness, and now charged with assault.

    Been rolling down that hill for the past 15ish years has Andrew, because for all the strides and brilliance of people, the man gets a bit of liquor in him and turns into an utter piece of shit in the process.

    And I'm safe in saying this comment because I take a piss standing up instead of sitting down, because that's how he rolls.

    Disappointed it won't be at Moorabbin but there will be a different "sculpture" of him there.

    St Kilda Football Club had also pushed to have the statue at its refurbished training base at Moorabbin, where Winmar played 45 of his 251 AFL games. It is believed the Saints will instead include Winmar in a sculptural montage of former champions, featuring the likes of Tony Lockett and Nick Riewoldt.

    It's absolutely bizarre. He has no real strong connection to football here. It makes no sense.

    It's like putting a statue of Dale Kickett in a freo jumper at Moorabbin.

    The Nicky Winmar statue , going to the new Perth Stadium is a great idea. Eagles and Dockers fans should look up to anyone in a ST.KILDA jumper , and its great this will be on a weekly basis. The poor buggers and their "test tube" football clubs are "without" , and a little Red , White and Black will be good for them.

    The powers that be , were going to do a Paul Haselby or Matthew Pavlich statue , but the cost of the bronze needed for Haselbys stomach or Pavlichs nose , made it financially impossible.
