Senior. Experienced. Proven.

Perhaps I should have clarified.

As Kingy says, we have consistently promoted people to roles that they are probably a little bit under qualified for. Nothing against either DMac or Brady, but we need a really strong senior and experienced GM of football, particularly if the football dept is taken out of Amarfio's responsibility.

Yes am glad you pointed this out. Kingy is a smart fella. And I am absolutely positive he doesn't say things for thing's sake, like plenty in the media do.

His first question to Ben was are you the right man for the job. That wasn't random. That was measured. Now he is saying we promote people above their current capabilities.

And if anyone cares to remember I said I'd heard 3/4 more to go. Now imagine if those words came out of Kingy's mouth.

I am not saying they did, just as I am not saying they didn't.

For all the loose rumours about Clarko's opinion of Amarfio and that he allegedly wants Mark Brayshaw brought in to replace him, this comment from Gerard Whately seems relevant.

“I think it’s fair to interpret that he resents the assumptions being made about him, and he was really clear that he’s not picking the club, it can’t work like that, he will challenge the club to pick him if it gets to that stage, but he believes in alignment, and he specially mentioned the president and the chief executive, and the club has to believe in him and he has to believe in the club,” Whateley explained.

Whately had spoken with Clarkson at a function earlier in the day in which he denied the claims of a $1.6million payday among other things.

I think the interesting part is also Clarko acknowledging that it's not all about him choosing the club, that it can't work like that. I've felt ever since the Amarfio/Brayshaw rumour began that there's no way Clarkson would consider it appropriate for a coach to demand his choice of CEO and Sonja also said as much in her SEN interview this week.

Maybe it was a challenge - if they roll Amarfio then he recognises the club as a bunch of desperites who'll bend any which-way. If they stay firm and keek Amarfio, he knows he has a strong willed leader and this will be proof that the club has the backbone he needs to see in order to make his decision to sign on.

Well that seems to be what we are doing.

Apart from keeking Amarfios. I don't want to know about what that involves.

Rad Roo was definitely a North supporter, and he wasn't a troll either. I'm pretty sure he talked about how he came to Australia as a child in the 90s and just fell in love with Carey.
Everything he said struck me as being sincerely held.
Complete wacko of course, and I probably agreed with about 5% if I'm being generous. People gave him a lot of s**t but he was largely unflappable, in fact he always felt like he'd "won" if they attacked him personally because they hadn't engaged with him on an intellectual level.
He could get tiresome eventually, but I had a lot more time for him than Saintly.
Rad Roo is a genuine elite poster IMO. Sure he's a bit of a different cat but I found his posts incredibly intriguing. Vive la difference......

Do you REALLY think Clarkson is that stupid to coach North.
