    I recall there were rumours about the DV back in late 90s. And certainly understand how those negatively affected by school and hospital closures would call Kennett a known scumbag. We are somewhat desperate after gaudry failure.

    Pedantic point of order - full time does not equal permanent. Is the issue that he was not made permanent or that he was somehow prevented from working full time hours?

    Yep, cause the Airline tickets to and from Adelaide would be a cheaper option. Can you even imagine what that would cost in money and time ?

    My 10 cents worth here..If he didnt move over when he was supposed to..then...he really didn't buy into the whole Bolton approach of

    " I work for Carlton, or I AM Carlton:" Theres a difference and I would suggest that Mr Triggs stance was "I work for Carlton" & I will remain in Adelaide..

    Sorry Triggy,,you need to buy in mate....

    We have some on staff meaning we can shift them into other positions if need be. I assume they get sick and holiday pay and are privy to unfair dismissal provisions. Bolton is on staff so if his coaching tenure isn't working we can utilise him in another role if he wants to stay on.

    With Trigg there isn't another role and he would hardly go from head honcho to a department manager reporting to someone else.

    We couldn't exactly give him guaranteed years in the position.

    I know. I was just disproportionately irritated by the misuse of 'full time' to mean 'permanent' (ex-recruiter so a bugbear of mine). I was just checking to make sure what I was irritated about was actually there.

    So, he wasn't permanent but was expecting to become permanent, then.

    Those against Kennett are mainly bothered by the stigma he carries.
    Personally, I think we need more Kennetts in politics these days. I'm not talking about JK's specific policies here mind you (I'm a teacher). I mean that he's not too sh!t scared to speak or act as he sees fit, in case it makes him unpopular.
    As a club president at least you know what you're getting. Good luck! ;)

    Not unless you have all the right people in place performing at their optimum at all times. The last 2 years have been pretty damn good really.

    Bolton was selected via a committee. SOS wasn't selected or recruited. Ive always found it quite amusing SOS returned to the club once S Kernahan left the presidency, and MLOG was given the seat at the top. My understanding is...Mr Lo Giudece and Mr Silvagni and best of mates. No recruitment took place whats so ever.

    Would it be better if his first name was Craig and he looked like a quintessential Aussie ?

    Hes from a migrant Italian family that has done very well for themselves...Being an Italian myself I'm abit fed up with the stereo type..

    If anyone didn't mean any harm by that analogy, it would have been TODN.
    Relax. I have some Italian blood running through me amongst other mixes....Who cares? :)

    Purely tongue in cheek as people keep referring to the old school Carlton. I meant no harm. There is a genuine resemblance in expression and posture on occasion though. I meant it no differently to the old Chris Judd/Voldemort comparisons.

    Yeah theres a heap of Italians in our community that barrack for the greatest club on the planet is there ? Always thought it was because it was Carlton where they all migrated back in the fifties....Choosing the mighty blues was the next logical step..

    Before the Italians arrived there..I believe the area had a very strong Jewish connection...Which may explain why CFC are also very popular with the Jewish community...

    And Silvagni has done a remarkable job in only two drafts. Where would we be without him?

    I moved from NZ as a kid in the late 70s, flew into Melbourne, drove across the Nullarbor, lived in Perth for 3 months then back to Melbourne into a terraced house somewhere between Brunswick and Coburg. The biggest culture shock imaginable. I have fond memories of those times. The different nationalities and food ... and lots of concrete.

    As someone NOT of Italian background, I say "Hear, hear!"

    The Italian contribution to the fabric and character of our club is significant and something to be celebrated. We have seen the club embrace the close proximity of Lygon Street and the Italian community over the years. I like the fact that the club president is of Italian heritage.

    Ive always looked at other clubs and been a tad envious with the way they draft, the way they do deals at trade time, and the way they develop.

    Just couldn't understand why we as a club couldn't follow suit. It was only with the arrival of SOS that I started to understand what we could accomplish once we ourselves understood and accepted that we were at ground zero. That being said I'm still yet to see whether our "development" has improved in line with other clubs, but our trading and recruiting appears to have improved significantly.

    I'm so grateful for what this guy did for us on the football ground, and what he took on when he came back. The job was massive, and he's embraced it with both hands.

    Could probably go on here and talk about the fruits of his man hood...but that's a different post and also one we'll know more about once the "development" question has a touch more clarity to it..
