Meh, vacuous power couple IMO

The training wheels are off as David Teague lands Carlton job for good

Juddy that is

Clarko hadnt been in the drivers seat before while Teague has had half a season in the shop window. Also the coaching and playing landscape (as far as contract lengths go) looks a whole lot different 15 year on.
Media reporting 3 year deal so I guess they have more faith than some supporters? Seems like the right appointment and term. Hopefully the club can leave its recent self-sabotaging past behind and become a hated force again.

They are fair traders and have a good relationship with the Giants – see Scully (and upcoming Patton deal). Also note Hawks were prepared to trade for Sheil as a RFA for which the Dons had to cough up 2 first rounders to get a second rounder back for him.
Not saying it will happen but dont be surprised.

A good list (eg Melbs, Port, Essendon, Giants) doesnt always deliver on its promise.

I’d be backing a proven performer like Clarko.

Hmmmm…

I think you’re right, Jack because I reckon the Hawks are prepared to trade for him while the size of the Carlton offer will prevent the Giants from matching.

I think Coniglio will want the Giants to get something for him as a restricted FA.

Is 2 years a bit of an underwhelming endorsement, Col?

As opposed to two of his best mates in O’Meara and Mitchell?

So putting money aside, does he really think Teague is closer to coaching a flag than Clarkson?

Good luck to him if he choses IKON Park.

So Coniglio would prefer playing under David Teague than Al Clarkson?
Interesting.

Last year’s top 4 finish was off the back of a Brownlow winning season by a guy would never played a minute in 2019.

I was hopeful of competitive season but given the number of Box Hill debutantes I’m satisfied we are building.

And no I didn’t expect the Dons to do much either unlike the fans and media who love a bit of blind faith

Clarkson insists Hawks aren't playing finals despite Giant win in Canberra

Spot on, MJ

Clarkson insists Hawks aren't playing finals despite Giant win in Canberra

I know you were critiquing the Hawks which is a bit rich given your mob were preseason flag faves with the media.

No-one was expecting great things from the Hawks once Mitchell broke his leg.

….from a Dons supporter who may still miss finals in 2019 and haven’t won one for 15 years?
Sure – the Hawks are real underperformers

Clarko’s legend keeps growing every year.

Rationale assessment of where the Hawks are with a young inconsistent group drawn from average to poor draft positions blended with some serious experience.

Glad to see AFLX’s demise at an ‘elite’ level but I can still see it being useful as a junior development format.

AFLX officially scrapped

Hoo bloody ray

Blues still chasing Clarko? LMAO.

More AFL journos desperate for clickbait non-news.

Five talking points from AFL Round 19

The Roar is starting to remind me of the Hun pre-season with all this whipping up of expectations.

No sold on them still.

If Essendon keep their belief, anything is possible

In Europe some games are fan lockouts when racism and/or violence has occurred.

A BIG statement I know but after 3 years something drastic had to be considered.

The Final Quarter: An opportunity for education and empowerment

If Hawthorn is looking to make Ben Stratton a one year captain, Ben McEvoy should be their next. Happy for Sheils to be his vice.

Five talking points from AFL Round 18

SPS? Limitless? Are we talking about the same player?

Sure he can be better than exposed form suggests but he doesn’t have that much potential.

Yep mainly for the lols, AD 😉
