What if he did it on the sneak, out of the public view but it somehow leaked or someone saw him in the back having a extremely private lunch with SOS. I think it'd be 10x worse what we have to deal with in the media.I don't doubt that. The part I think is master troll is making the lunch super public when it didn't need to be. I mean, he is perfectly entitled to eat lunch at a restaurant but he'll know he is going to get questioned about it.
Got a better sense of humour than many give him credit for.
Except he's in Melbourne for other things.Smartly played by Rosco right there, Freo on the up, nice little excuse to be in Melbourne for a cheeky lunch, nice little excuse to have lunch with his business partner. Perfectly timed little PR shot in the arm for all things Ross.
The Carlton job would have to be bloody attractive, it’s all up side and we all know he likes a good poach! It’s brave to say there’s ZERO chance of that happening again.
I agree your second paragraph is a likely explanation.What if he did it on the sneak, out of the public view but it somehow leaked or someone saw him in the back having a extremely private lunch with SOS. I think it'd be 10x worse what we have to deal with in the media.
I think he made it public because he didn't want to cause any more rumors. He planned to have lunch with his business partner and old friend before the hall of fame dinner that night. He's answered the questions already and people will move on.
We are sitting 6-5 now, and most people think we are doing ok. 9th on the ladder = no finals. Making or not making finals won't be the criteria, and I doubt there is one. More likely, the club is happy with where we are at but have a contract, so wait till the end of the season to evaluate.I think future of Ross, Freo and Carlton depends on how freo is going to play in the next 11 games.. If we do not make finals he may not be coaching at both clubs, If we make finals he will be wanted at both clubs. But I am not sure Freo will be able to match carlton for contracting long 4-5 years.... If we are offering only 2-3 years may be better to increase the contract value so that both freo and ross are satisfied?
A lot of people implicitly stereotype without realizing it, studies have shown people automatically make assessments on intelligence, charisma, or even hygiene based on attractiveness, age, ethnicity, etc.What a strange thing to think just by looking at someone...
No thanks.Pretty sure SOS was seeing if his good mate at freo will have a role available for him in 2020
He targeted Palmer at GWS and then at Carlton. That was very very strange.No thanks.
I could’ve built a decent list at GWS with their picks from reading Phantom Drafts on BigFooty.
And what’s he’s done to Carlton’s list recruiting so many recycled duds is a disgrace.
Sam KerridgeTo GWS cost them nothing really and he was a Rising Star Winner at odds with his club.
To Carlton was a salary dump that included some much better players didn't it?
Far better to do so very publicly. If,they even looked like they looked like they were in a private chat it would be all over the place even more speculatively.Headlines across a few outlets. The guy is such a troll. They both new exactly what the headlines would be when they chose to sit in a public space and eat lunch in Lygon st of all places.
