Need a break from working on my game :)


You walked into the captaincy
Like you were walking into the Parade
You said you might take an offer to go to Sydney
But for the captaincy you would stay
You had one eye in the mirror as you
Destroyed the soul of Port Adelaide
And you're very good at being the martyr
Being the martyr and

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I bet you think this song is about you
Don't you?
Don't you?

You were quite good several years ago
But you keep flattering to deceive
When you told Howard that the money was too good to refuse
And that he'd be better off if he leaves
But the truth is you were thinking that
It's either him or me
We had a dream about
Clurey and Howard
Clurey and Howard and

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I bet you think this song is about you
Don't you?
Don't you?
Don't you?

We had a dream about
Clurey and Howard
Clurey and Howard and

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I bet you think this song is about you
Don't you?
Don't you?
Don't you?

Well I hear you went up the river with Wines to Echuca
To make sure you had some fun
Then you made your way over to the Eyre T-Bar
To take on a black diamond run
You're where you want to be all the time
And all the fans are white noise
You can't accept that maybe
You're part of the problem
You're part of the problem and

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I bet you think this song is about you
Don't you?
Don't you?
Don't you?

Wow .. serious piles of steaming :poo::poo: being written here!
EG... "So Wines had approached Carlton ... " ... So we call the club liars, and post blatant bullcrap like this! Hypocrites?

Just as a context ... think back to when Boak was approached by Geelong at the end of 2012, with their delegation of Scott, Selwood, and Bartel scooting into town to woo Boak to Geelong. The same Boak who was hailed a hero for staying and appointed captain a few months later.

Sure there were differences, but then there were also similarities. Do you honestly believe that Boak's manager hadnt spoken to Geelong before? Hadnt been in discussions about him going to Geelong? That Boak didnt know they were coming, hadnt entertained the thought of leaving? .... Lets make him captain! ... We did, and he turned out a damned good one!

Wines hasnt spoken to Carlton! There are no indications of any serious moves by him to move! He has had a terrible year, so has the team, the coaches, and the club. He, like most, would have been generally unhappy, and he specifically unhappy with Ken. His manager knows this, and his name comes up in hypothetical discussions with another club. How do you know his manager didnt raise his name in a discussion, come back to him for his views, and that he didnt tell his manager to get stuffed, he is staying?

There could be a something to it, or there could be nothing to it ... but we have some seriously childish dummy-spitting going on!
I don't doubt that contact with Carlton was made.

If we had a new coach, no one would be talking about sacking Ken.
as much as I like this it's wrong,

If Ken had won some finals in the last 2000 days nobody would be talking about sacking Ken
If Ken had developed some KPF players to help Dixon and co, nobody would be talking about sacking ken

If half-captains had delivered the results Hinkley promised they would we wouldn't be complaining that half-captains didn't deliver the results we were promised.

I can see how someone with Jonas's legal training would see that as completely unreasonable :think:

“If we won the flag last year, no one would be talking about it.”
Gtfo. How a chump that would only get a game at 1 other club, gold coast, is the so called Co captain of our club is an embarrassment.
He is making me temporarily hate us.

The more I think about the concept of co-captains the more I dislike it.
However i was thinking about it and it seems to be almost a generational thing.
It seems to be about spreading responsibility (or blame) rather than accepting the responsibilities of leadership.
When you hear the guys interviewed they genuinely don't seem to see the issue with it.

Just seems strange to me and sort of contradicts my ideas on leadership.
