I wouldn’t have thought we did... if it’s a post from the blues then maybe just riling us up. The big fish comment backfires considering they were in for everyone and ended up with a preused small forward.... not to mention Shiel

It seems an odd set up and probably explains why there's been some angst between SOS and the CEO Cain Liddle, who reportedly made the Agresta appointment. Liddle, Lloyd and Agresta are mates from their junior footy days.
In the footage where SOS traded this years first to the Crows for Stocker, you could see Lloyd and others in the background - they released the footage after the draft.
It looked to me like he was trying desperately not to undermine the boss - but really, really wanting to slap him around and ask WTF he thinks he’s doing!!!
We’ve all been in those meetings haven’t we?

People need to remember "list manager" is a completely different role to "national recruiting manager"

The buck ultimately stops with their boss, the GM of footy, not the list manager.

SOS might have his knockers, but check out the bloke before him (2014 draft):

CARLTON

2014 NAB AFL Draft: Blaine Boekhorst (pick No.19), Dillon Viojo-Rainbow (28), Clem Smith (60), Jayden Foster (63)

2015 AFL Pre-Season and Rookie Drafts: Jason Tutt, Billy Gowers, Brad Walsh, Tom Fields, Fraser Russell

Rookie upgrades: Nil

Trade and free agency: Kristian Jaksch, Liam Jones, Mark Whiley

Biggest hit: Liam Jones

Verdict: What a disaster. The catastrophic series of events started at the Trade Period when Carlton offloaded pick No.7 in a deal for Jaksch, Whiley and pick No.19 from the Giants. Together, the two highly rated recruits managed just 16 games for the club. The Blues then stunned many punters by picking 21-year-old Boekhorst with their first selection at the draft, before continuing their search for outside run with the recruitment of Viojo-Rainbow in the second round. Both were never able to fulfil their potential at Ikon Park. Carlton's four national draft picks played just 32 games collectively, with two unable to even win a senior debut. The off-season was saved, ever so slightly, by the acquisition of Jones from the Bulldogs. He's the only player – of the 12 recruited throughout this period – who is still on the list. Who'd have thought that would be the case five years ago? It was Shane Rogers' last draft at the helm.

Clem Smith, Jayden Foster, Dillon Viojo-Rainbow, and Blaine Boekhorst in December, 2014.

What the club said: "Blaine played senior footy for the Swan Districts, we've been watching him for three or four years. This year he's really come on in leaps and bounds. He played state footy and we think he's just about ready to go. We've said all along that we have wanted to address our outside speed, run and ball use – so that's three things that he brings to the table. So, we're looking forward to him starting." – Shane Rogers, Carlton's national recruiting manager

Trade and draft period rating: 0.5/10

Rank: 18th

Correct
We won’t go into a season without a list manager

Would be pure incompetence

Very surprised we have not got one yet still
The fact we haven't suggests that either someone in the club has it covered or we have someone lined up who is currently involved in another club and can't be announced until after the draft (maybe it is SOS or McCartney and they are waiting to make the announcement) or maybe it's why they traded out of this draft and the plan is to take time getting the right person and hitting next years draft in a major way.

Oh my dagnabbit god... I forgot about that stupid trade. Lessons weren't learned at all.
