What is the point chasing Harry if you know you have no chance of getting him ? Aren't North better off trying to actual try target realistic FA/Trade options ?
Forces carlton to overpay.

He might leave. Dusty type offer not easy to knock back + family connection.

North can offer harry unlimited millions via the psd and chase other trade targets.

To make you overpay and to generate lolz on here.
We will pay him what he is worth (900 K P/A or there abouts)

Essendon came calling last season with a massive over and his management told them in no uncertain terms to FRO.

It's Cripps that is the iffy/worrying one for Carlton supporters

North have unlimited millions ??

Yeah good one.

You are clearly fishing for a bite, but all you are doing is making yourself look like a tool in the process.

And chances are he will knock if back or ask for more when north put up a contract that is very hard to refuse.

North will see carlton as a potential rival down the track - rebuilding teams. Very logical.

Not literally but significant higher than the blues offer.

Its not about me but rather the future of the NMFC.

Brothers playing together is an added bonus. Like saints trying combine the king's

List management teams can walk and chew gum, mate. This notion that because you're after one guy means you can't look at others is such a BigFooty-ism.

You forget we have Millionaire Coterie Supporters who will find legit ways for Harry to make a decent crust outside of football.

Anyhow your position is not one of good intentions for North, it's about screwing Carlton over and we all know it.

Also I am certain The King Twins will never be reunited, Ben seems happy as a clam playing for The Suns.

This whole Twins bond thing is way overstated..

Anyhow good luck to North in the very small chance they can convince Harry to sign (you can never say never until Big Mac puts ink to paper at Carlton)

He wouldn't screw Carlton over by walking to the PSD, it would take North (minimum) pick 1 to get him across in a trade (and probably their 1st pick next year too)

2nd in the Coleman, 24 yoa, 204cm

I'd be shocked if north don't offer a godfather contract.

They almost landed dusty they are very capable of getting harry.

The psd gives them a strong position to build off ala Jack martin.

Just because you don't want it to happen doesn't equal 'fishing for a bite'.

Imho north are a very good chance of landing this big fish. Why wouldn't he screw over carlton? He owes them very little if he's off

True. But you would like to think North's admin are a lot more discreet about who they are chasing than they have been in the past (new regime so I think)

Hope Tom Powell gets the Rising Star going this week.. He is well due for one. You have a gem there.

fu** me, you are the Tom Browne of BF.

Do North not have millionaire coterie supporters? Last time I checked we have a few. Peter Scanlon isn't exactly skint with a net worth of $1bn AUD....

The stereotype is f*n hilarious.

Last time I checked we were the first and only club to pay any player $1m a season and it was in the mid 90's, 25 years ago.

Dusty was a bee's dick from walking on $1.4m a season.

But keep ranting on about North being the poor cousins around the corner, despite having 0 debt and the exact same salary cap as everyone else.

We are 0-7 but:

* First three picks in the draft are all playing and showing good signs, Powell in particular looks a beauty
* Blokes we opicked up from other clubs in Stepho, Atu, Corr have all played and all look good

The rebuild is progressing very nicely.
Yeah he was outstanding in those two games he got on the park for :thumbsu:

I don't think Dusty was as close to join North as you seem to think he was.

Be that as it may, you still have to play under the Salary Cap, and I doubt you could (under the Cap) pay Harry all that much more than what we can/will be.

It's not like the NFL or NBA where one club can massively blow another club's FA offer out of the water.

Besides North currently have a putrid midfield, I doubt Harry would have been much use to your mob with the way your mids and wing players etc butcher the ball.

Lol, Ralph Carr and Dusty have said since that he was already out the door, until Balme met him and his old man in NZ. This is on record.


North have considerably more money to offer McKay than Carlton. Deal with it. Not that I think he will move anyway. But the notion that Carlton can pay McKay more than North because they have the Pratt's is hilarious. How much onfield success has that brought about in the last 2 decades?

If it was down to the future strength of the clubs midfield, it's no surprise McKay hasn't signed on with Carlton yet....
