It's hard to tell if journalists are just guessing / making sh*t up or the various factions at Carlton are leaking all sorts of sh*t.

This makes no sense after the Lyon debacle.

Sure, he'd be a good hire. Sure, I'd actually worry he'd turn Carlton around.

But to lead on Lyon, then say a process. Lyon drops out, then to backflip and go Pyke?

WTF is happening down there.

There's no hierarchical structure. Any campaigner can get the numbers and do what they want to.

They took Collingwoods suggested approach and jumped at the first person that said yes.

100% hit rate, you the messiah? Give us more!
Bulldogs at the line of +15.5 points is the smart play tonight.

'Port Adelaide were outstanding in putting the sword to Geelong in the opening week of the finals. They do not have a great record though at outperforming the market following a dominant effort. In their last seven off a win of more than 30 points, the Power have covered just one of those.

The Bulldogs are just outstanding as an underdog, covering 15 of 18 lines when the underdog.'

The smarter play would be to keep your money rather than giving it away.....

No need to fact check, take that straight to the bank.

Great get.
no, he's not. Turned a United club into a divided club. And if you want to use win/loss ratio, then compare him to the other coaches that took over a group that had won a final the year before. Was gifted a good group and totally destroyed it because he couldn't accept any responsibility for fading out on GF day. Here's a tip Don, too tall down back, too slow up forward and nowhere near a deep enough midfield.
