    Just a friendly reminder, this thread is for celebrating the life and times of Stephen Trigg, not baiting other posters...

    You guys are way past this guy. If Whicker was still there then he would have brought back his prodigal son to Crows but you are safe now.
    No commercial acumen.........I think we all knew that :)

    That club reminds me of a Greenday song, Basket Case.

    He wasn't there long enough for Carlton supporters to realise his best talent was his ability to slowly stagnate a club.

    I don't think it's a coincidence that Trigg's "resignation" coincides with Carlton's search for a CEO having a focus on "strong commercial background".

    His lack of talent in that regard was discussed at length on this board.

    Thanks for that. I just looked this up again after many years. Such a great song.

    It would be unfair to hold him back.

    If we bought Trigg back in any capacity, even as a water boy, I'd flip my shit so hard.

    Did you not read what they said? It's not that hard. He helped get them to a position now where they can move forward and he's really not the bloke that can help them do that. He steadied the boat, and they now need someone dynamic to steer it forward. No shame in that.

    Did he?

    They're still a shambles from where I'm sitting.

    They've basically become a salary cap release valve for GWS and nothing more.

    Meaningless waffle.

    If he was any good they wouldn't be moving him on. End of story.

    Carlton are running low on Crows cast offs.

    Maybe we should give them a ruck coach to help them out?

    Commuting from Adelaide to Melbourne to work, and not doing enough to fix the clubs financial position.

    When things went belly up this year with Career one, he wasnt around to patch things up. We would up with Virgin as our sponsor after much to-ing and fro-ing.

    Im hearing we've basically sewn up Lathlain as a replacement.

    Well if they said that it in their scripted leaving statement for a senior executive that must be true.

    Sometimes you need different folk for different things. Whatever, you guys were always going to bag him, no matter what happened.

    Suck shit Trigg. Lasted 3 years outside of the Adelaide bubble. It's an absolute disgrace that he was our CEO for so long.

    o_O I'm more worried about Lethlean tbh. Has absolutely no experience or track record in cooking the books. As you blokes know this is rule 101 for hiring any competent CEO. ;)
