A lot of people thought he could be PM - I was just a kid but I remember people saying itLived in Melbourne in the 80s and shared a house with someone who knew Elliott in his Elder's days and spoke highly of him. She even thought he could be PM. Whilst I had a slightly different view, was taken by her passion for Jack. No one can doubt John Elliott's passion for CFC.
My condolences to all the family.
I credit jeff and a beautiful sporting result at the mcg with the 1999 election liberal loss..............Eddie McGuire & Jeff Kennett paying lovely tribute to their time with John Elliott on 3aw
Eddie crediting Jack with putting a rocket up the broke VFL , which led to the formation of the AFL , as he was talking of creating a break away league.
Jeff credit Jacks help with 1992 election Liberal win
The curse is lifted perhaps. Stranger things have happened.Without trying to sound disrespectful, this looks like a massive omen!
On the day Voss is appointed coach, Big Jack passes away.
Almost symbolizes the death of the 'old Carlton' and the beginning of the new.
RIP John Elliot
Whilst he was a polarising President, there was no doubt his heart was True Blue.
