I get the impression that he's played the game well and lied his way to get where he got to. But you eventually get found out as he did in Sydney and has with us.
But you have to get found out by people that matter and we fans don't matter.

Those with the power to do anything either know and don't care or are fooled by his bs fast talk. Even the media don't call him on anything.

Still, quiet satisfaction in knowing that I know and he knows that there's people that know.
Honestly, if people can point me in the direction of where I can get clips of some of this self contradicting sh*t he's said I might waste an hour of my life putting together a mashup and putting it up on youtube so maybe we can draw some light to it.

I’ve looked for the time when he said he still expected to push for finals and won’t be happy if we don’t push for that. I think it was included in one of his 5AA interviews but not sure.

He’s an ass. I love this quote:

“At the start the fans probably struggled to understand, maybe we didn’t communicate it as clearly as we could have, but gee whiz, they have been rewarded.”

gee whiz we beat Carlton. Woop dee doo.
Wow, we've been rewarded.............. with 3 ******* wins? A wooden spoon? When's the parade?
What a clown, if this is his measure of success no wonder our ladder position is what it is

If you find his “5% of the brain” quote, just put that on loop. That tells you all you need to know about him.

Let me be clear about this Chappy.

A wooden spoon is only justified by a premiership shortly after. Then, you can geewizz til your hearts content.

Until then, this shitshow of a season is a stain on all at the club.

So Chapman has selected his replacement and Rowe reckons its Jamie McPhee, another banker who recently resigned as CEO of ME Bank.

He really does believe that it's his position to replace and no input is required. The grab I heard, he was almost aggressive. Couple of interesting points. First, he says meets skill set, time available but then says the successor is from a shallow pool. What an effwit. Second, Bicks then butts in on Rowe saying that it's not only his choice, there's a committee. I wonder if there's factions formed around this and Bicks has some inside info. I honestly can't believe how Chappy has made the club's search for a new chairman all about himself. He's a clueless muppet.

and forgot, this McPhee guy apparently a Carlton tragic.

For some reason I thought people selected to the board had to be financial members of the club, and possibly for number of years (2 perhaps)?
Definitely true for the member elect positions. Would be funny if it's the same for the appointed and Chappy's missed this minor detail and it gets called out.

Yeah it's unbelievable that after all he's done to the club Chapman then hand picks his successor.

Another banker run out of Sydney too. Cut from the same cloth.

Just the idea of the Chairman being a “fanatical” supporter of another club should be an immediate no.

Chapman is going to leave us one final turd, the count.
I'm not saying that a non-crows supporter couldn't be a good chairperson. What concerns me is that if it's a 3 day per week, unpaid gig and you're not a crows fan, I really can't trust your motivation at all. Especially considering it turns out that you're Chappy's hand picked man/woman.
