No worries, thanks for reading. The alcohol is a big one for sure. On the train home from the West Coast game last night a guy was blind drunk and looking to start crap with anyone who would listen. He could barely speak. They should change it to 1-2 beers per person at a time tops

It's time for new leadership at the AFL: Why Gil's gotta go

This is absolutely right. It’s that sense that he’s entitled, that born to rule attitude. Might not be fair but his actions certainly don’t suggest otherwise!

Or even AFLX! Fans are desperate for state of origin but we’re constantly told there’s no time to fit it in and players don’t want to play…but somehow they’re happy to play AFLX? Once again, an AFL money-spinning attempt, rather than finding a way to do something great for footy (bringing back state of origin)

The main issue is that they lack the moral authority to do justice to these worthwhile causes. Every now and then they should wade in for sure but it seems like they just do it for some rosy PR

It’s also swings and roundabouts, cycles and all that. Melbourne looked like they were a chance to pack it in during the Neeld era; just last year they were the most exciting team in the comp. Carlton will turn it around eventually, I just don’t think Bolton will play a part in that

Hiring and firing in the AFL: what to do with Brendon Bolton?

Yeh I actually think SOS’s job was more difficult than Bolton’s. Bolton has the opportunity to work with players year-round whereas SOS only gets a small window to improve the list each year. There’s some talent starting to accumulate but the depth is still awful, maybe worst in the league.

Do you think a realistic appraisal of Carlton would’ve had them finishing bottom 3, even if they’d improved a fair bit?

Historical greatness of course but there is no doubt Carlton was once a great club. Would be a massive deal if they won a premiership. Prestigious club that has completely lost its way. Essendon is in a similar boat albeit not to the same degree

Cripps is shaping to have a very unlucky career at this stage. Some have started to step up and help him but far too few. Kind of amazing he’s become such an inspiring leader given the dearth of senior figures at Carlton

Scott certainly has a harder edge than Bolton. The opportunity to take Carlton back to greatness would have to be enticing as well. Definitely after an experienced coach?
