    We have to act now and get Lethlean just to stick it up Carlton. If given a straight choice he'd choose us because Carlton are an even bigger basket case than we are.

    In my view we should never ever act if it's to "stick it" to Carlton or any club for that matter.
    We should only ever act if it's in our best interests.

    Other than premierships, sticking it up Carlton is pretty much our only interest. Eddie will understand.

    I don't know but I find it hard to believe anything Caro says about Ed (or Swanny).

    I'm not surprised Trigg resigned the way he was treated.

    How long will Carlton wait until they announce the replacement?

    It depends upon whether Lethlean has accepted I suppose?

    Trigg just may have resigned as a big FU to the Blues. We'll see pretty soon I guess.

    Carlton love a good back stabbing party.

    Getting Lethlean onboard would be huge for us. Having a strong relationship with the AFL would surely be a bonus come negotiation time.

    Brendan Mclements it is then I guess. He wins the competition after our first 32 choices either turned us down or were unavailable.

    There is no way Trigg exit happened unless Lethlean was already locked and loaded.

    Time to run an actual process Ed.

    I wonder if we have approached James Clement over the position?

    Ten times the man as Doodles Lethlean.

    Or he heard they were chasing Lethlean so he's taking up an offer elsewhere.

    I'm someone that's always looked on in respect of what Hawthorn have done, but of late I'm looking at them in the same light I considered us in 2014. I just didn't really feel a need to volunteer that information in a thread about our CEO...

    FWIW Sydney are the benchmark off field for me since the likes of Fagan, Evans and the former president departed. The wheel turns quickly in this game and losing those three was akin to Walsh and MM going in the space of 18 months for us and Pert left to dictate the direction of the FD.

    I just hope the people who complain about Eddie's autocratic decision making don't complain when we insist on going through a full process and Lethlean goes to Carlton. But this is the Collingwood Big Footy board, so I don't have that much confidence.
