Am I batshit missing something …. I just PM'd our Boss Aph ... but obviously busy ...

Is there an option when purchasing from the Carlton shop, to put numbers on the back of the new PUMA home strip?

The boy wants 23 on the back.

Would love to see Benny gale get the job. Would be a fresh change from Vlad & McLachlan, having someone successful and who respects the game and it's players.
I want Benny Gale to get the CEO gig with us quite frankly (met him a few years ago and he told me he was a massive Blues fan growing up)

Total class act.

Can’t see why not. They used to do it on the Nike jumpers

If Campbell gets the top job the AFL can sincerely go fu** itself.
Whilst Gale would be a good choice I reckon Campbell has done an amazing job considering the train wreck that was the drugs scandal, so not sure why there’d be animosity towards him.

Personally, I’d love him to move on from Essendon as he’s clearly too good an operator for them

Another case of pathetic begging entitlement from Geelong, it's shameless (much like the Swans as well) 👎👎👎
On the plus side, the AFL shut them down. Too big a can of worms, I suppose. All of a sudden you'd have interstate clubs wanting additional allowances to move Victorian draftee's families over to support them, and it'd get way out of hand. Stupid of Geelong to even ask. All they're doing now is making it known that they weren't just trying to get maximum value from Kelly, they were exploring all options (even the ridiculous ones) to make staying at their club a viable option.

Simple solution, they could have traded out another quality player e.g. Duncan, to ease salary cap pressure. This is what clubs have had to do in the past.

Hmm, seems a bit petty to me by Richmond. Can understand why Captain Bloods family is ticked off
...

We don't know why they did it, or how they looked into it, or anything about it beyond the article in question. It seems to me to have been a matter of history poorly researched and then corrected when discovered.

Ask yourself, why would they decrease the standing of one of their greatest without reason, decades after the fact?

I don't know why they would pick at that scab to begin with. Starting an investigation like this was only ever going to result in status quo, or hurting people's feelings. There was never an upside, so why bother?

Do people not want to know what actually happened?

See, here's my issue: I majored in history. I'm well acquainted with the pursuit of accuracy, and the ways and means in which history is 'changed', to ensure that what is commonly believed to have been our past actually reflects what happened. People not associated with the practice of history just assume there are zero consequences involved in allowing a false history to be perpetuated. There might be another club legend, whose tale has gone begging in pursuit of glorifying a preexisting idol. There might be a political agenda, which the Dyer family is a component of (whether with or without their consent or knowledge).

And finally, there is conservativism combating the desire to change what is established that needs to be overcome before such a thing is done; this is not a simple process. Would they be doing this, dethroning an idol, for no reason? I wouldn't have thought so.

Why is it petty to right a wrong? Some of the stuff in that article written by the Dyers is ridiculous, give the benefit of the doubt to Jack despite a 2 year investigation finding he didn't win the best and fairest?

Totally the opposite to you on this one Elmer.

A two year investigation, is pretty thorough and i don't understand the families position at all, there response in the article, just seems to believe that Jack keep the honour, because he could have won more best and fairest awards during the war, this is ridiculous.

I really respect the fact, that they have done an investigation, found errors and fixed them, the board supported and agreed with the findings.
