Mick Malthouse, as usual, has been true to his word in this entire Carlton fiasco.
Mick Malthouse keeps saying publicly that he’s in it for the long haul to coach the Carlton Football Club, but privately you would be surprised if he had the same view considering their parlous state.
It’s no surprise that Fremantle is on top of the ladder after the first third of the season, but it certainly wasn’t expected that the GWS Giants would be sitting pretty in the top five and equal second on points with five wins.
North Melbourne coach Brad Scott and the besieged Carlton Football Club have every reason to personally thank WADA for appealing the AFL Anti-Doping Tribunal’s verdict to clear the 34 current and past Essendon players of taking a banned substance.
It was another remarkable round in the AFL with highlights everywhere. It started on Friday night with the magnificent care shown by Geelong Coach, Chris Scott to Mitch Clark.
Coaches of elite sporting teams are a special breed. They need to be able to take criticism from the public, administrators and the media, and dish it out as well.
