From what I'd been told it had become Fagan vs Roo/Chapman on the review. Fagan was pushing for it, Roo/Chapman kept telling him it wasn't needed, Burton and Campo were great, then Roo put his foot in his mouth with the "go support someone else" comment and so Roo/Chapman called the review as damage control, but limited the scope not to include the board (which Fagan wanted)


Liked by some of the older senior core, but not as much outside that.
Interestingly, this info came from a senior player.

Maybe playing favourites? It would probably be hard not to when you've been at the club for a decade.

I don't think it's all the senior players, but he had an older group like the Douglas/Thommo/Danger types who loved him.

From what I heard, Brett was surprised (probably all that public support he was receiving from Chapman), and is pretty unhappy that he is the scapegoat when there are others still there who perhaps shouldn't be.

I'm not sure who they are though

I believe that. Fagan is an outsider and not stupid, I believe he’s eventually seen through the Boys Club culture and wants to change it.

Burton was Roos appointment. Chapman loves Roo and the Boys Club culture. It’s obvious they would have held on if they could, you just had to see what Chapman was trying to do by pumping up Burton in that needless interview. Thankfully Roo has a big mouth and isn’t that bright at times.

Chapman and Roo have to go.

They should get him on Footy Classified to explain his side of the story. Would be a good laugh I reckon.

No that's not right, Fagan didn't think we needed the review and had ideas on what he wanted to change, took those ideas to the board, the board said they want a full review before implementing what Fagan wanted to do.

"go support someone else" was Roos hypothetical response to people who would not accept the findings of the review so it definitely wasn't what caused the review.

Roo was not responding to questions about the review but in general about the clubs leaders making decisions, that could have meant them keeping certain members.

I reckon if he was coming we would have announced it quite quickly, reckon there will be no further changes or additions until next year.
But but but Rowey said he was a lock......

I think they'll get someone, who that is o have no idea. Glenelg were quite concerned Stone was going early days though.

My guess would be Nicks might want someone he's had a relationship within football before.

Heard through my source that Crows looking to trade pick 4 for picks 7 and 10 (Freo) or with Geelong (14 amd 17 along with something else)...

Shiver me timbers....:oops:

Burton has no self awareness & is the type of person who never thinks he has done anything wrong, despite mountains of evidence to the contrary.

We really need a fresh Chair outside the boys club & along with the rumored footy manager would change the dynamics of AFC.

You can immediately tell his type. The whole "I find that offensive" BS when questioned about anything, just an insecure man who can't handle people not agreeing with him. He probably said sorry to the players by saying "I apologise if you took issue with what I did", which is the type of thing someone not actually showing any contrition at all will say.

I'd rather keep 4.

Quality over quantity every day of the week. One Red Baron or two pretty good pilots?

However, 7 and 10 I could stomach. Means we've traded 9 and 19 for 7 and 10.

14 and 17 for 9 and 19 can piss right off.
