Are Carlton finally ready to admit that ‘rebuild’ is not a dirty word?

When I was growing up in the 1980s, listening to iconic bands like Fleetwood Mac, Air Supply, Chicago, Reo Speedwagon and all the other soft-rock bands that rocked my boat, Carlton was the most powerful football club in the VFL.

AFL’s ‘new coach factor’ is real – just ask the Crows

Bringing in a new head coach can have a dramatic impact on the direction of an AFL club. Undefeated sides like Adelaide and the Western Bulldogs may be experiencing the positive end of that right now.

It’ll take more than Texas-sized stats for the Rockets to beat the Mavs and Spurs

Basketball is most compelling when two opposing styles meet. For instance, when a fast-breaking team that thrives on inspiration comes up against a half-court offense that uses set plays.

NBA playoffs: Uneasy is the head that wears the crown

Welcome to an opening round bloodbath in the first major drama of the NBA Playoffs. Think Titus Andronicus, Billy Shakespeare’s bloodiest play, or tragedy depending on whether you have money on the losing team.

MUNCEY: Stayers require patience, and Australians don’t have any

Of the 11 horses that started the $1.6 million Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) on the weekend, a grand total of one was bred in Australia. Europe accounted for eight of the runners. So why can’t we breed stayers?

Wounded Sea Eagles should stand by their man

Govern the A-League salary cap, or just scrap it altogether

Perth Glory will officially be disqualified from the A-League finals after accepting FFA’s punishment for breaching the competition’s salary cap. Yet this should not be the end of it. FFA need to address how they govern the cap or else there is little point having it in place.
