What do the Dogs have to do with any of this? Did I mention the Dogs at all? Just because the poster supports the Dogs, doesnt mean that was his rational had anything to do with the Dogs.
They seem to be the other team that's in it, along with North. So far the teams that are after him (seemingly) are not fantastic, singling out Carlton seems a bit unfair.

I dont think it's self explanatory at all.

It's apples and oranges when comparing Carlton and GC.

Carlton is a much bigger club with a stronger off field set up for Jack when it comes to GC. He might be the type that would enjoy playing in big games in front of big crowds - so that may be our draw card (on top of the money, business opportunities, based in inner city Melbourne, growing young list etc).
Off field set up?

I hope you don't mean the coaching and football department with you just axing your head coach.

I will concede we can't compete with the off field business opportunities that living in Melbourne brings. It is almost like we need a way to compensate players that don't live in Melbourne for that ;)

I suppose I was exaggerating saying they have EXACTLY what you can offer. All 5 above will miss on one of things you mentioned.

Ill rephrase, he can get most of what you suggested while not going from 1 bottom 2 team to another

I actually don't mind him going to Melbourne, can always swap first round and and future pick.

i think we will pass on Martin to clubs to the other more desperate clubs as we can get better players than martin via free agency.

Soft spot for Brisbane
Name them.
Literally every Victorian club.

He's hardly going to leave an embarassing club in Gold Coast for ANOTHER embarrassment in Carlton. He could go home to two decent clubs, or he could come to any of the Victorian clubs, outside of the charity clubs like St Kilda or the Kangaroos.

Charity clubs, hmmmmm heard we’ve cut our debt to zero. Your club seems to be epitomise a picture of rude health, destination club indeed. By the way thanks for Polec, superstar.

That strategy hasn’t really come off so far. The free agents better than Martin would be out of north’s reach.
Errrr really, wayward waite, hospital higgins, polarising polec says hi. Also got cheap gem in Ahern, Anderson playing career best footy, Marley one of the best small defender. All of them better than Martin. 2nd rounder for martin at maximum.
