Ominous signs here mate, remember Judds comments on footy classified regarding not signing a coach on ‘training wheels’ followed by Carlton’s very obvious attempt to lure Clarko with frankly ludicrous money and now they settle with Teague because of ‘people power’ apparently. Since when have Carlton really given a stuff what their fans think?
I’ll say what I said yesterday that Gillons comments regarding Coniglio ‘explicitly staying on at GWS’ was the biggest giveaway.
Carlton are currently a struggling club who would be a massive drawcard for the AFL in terms of $$$$ if they swiftly moved up the ladder and started playing finals regularly.
Hawthorn are viewed as the team that has had enough success recently and are the complete antithesis of the equalisation theory that the AFL believes in at all costs.
The AFL do not want coniglio at hawthorn it’s as simple as that.
Done and done ladies and gentlemen.
