Caroline Wilson banned from Demon function

Recommended Posts

If true it's very petty.

Love her or hate her she is a major media player in football.

The club needs to be bigger than this...

It seems Bartlett didn't want her there even tho she had been doing this gig for nearly 20 years.  Apparently, it was her passing reference to Pert's appointment and questioning the mfc due diligence in this article https://www.theage.com.au/sport/afl/the-storm-before-the-calm-at-melbourne-20180921-p50587.html was the reason for withdrawing her invitation. 

It is Bartlett's prerogative to invite who he wants but I reckon it is churlish of him. 

I didn't like the article but it went unnoticed and it is a shame it and the Pert appointment have now been brought into the spotlight.

Maybe Pert has got out at the right time, and no correspondence will be entered into.........

Bartlett is not a knee-jerk sort of guy. He must have good reason.

Probably because she makes things up.

In the op's audio, Caro says she and Bartlett chatted about the function last week and all was good.  The article I quoted was published over the weekend in The AGe.  Yesterday she gets a call from our marketing department to say not to attend.  That sounds like a knee-jerk reaction and churlish, especially after a near 20 year history.

We can't go banning journo's when they write something we don't like.  Not good for business.

Don't like this at all, seems very petty. Terrible optics after the weekend as well.

Surely there's more to it?

Who cares? Caro has been around too long and will not make us better.

Bartlett will.

Well said, LH. Complete shocker from a media management point of view.

For an article which barely rated a mention over the weekend, it is now front and centre in a spat with, like it or not, one of the preeminent media and issues commentators in our game. 

Looks like Caro is going to take aim at an individual more than the club itself, likely Bartlett.

But regardless, you've got to wonder who made this call and what they were thinking!

Absolutely pweak from Bartlett.  This is old Melbourne.  Weak, petty and paranoid.

Pathetic.

 

But there will be some simpletons that applaud it.

I would prefer them ban Garry Lyon from the club but that is never going to happen considering he is champion player for the club

Doing this the week after Caro spent an entire segment on FC praising the MFC's media department seems pretty shortsighted to me. Talk about throwing any goodwill in the bin.

Dumb statement. He’s done nothing wrong.

If people are still holding him to the Neeld thing I suggest they get over it.

Speaking of Caro, what I did find interesting that Eddie McGuire praised everyone in the past for the current great success of Collingwood including the football department and admin, made a poinr of naming everyone of significance except Gary Pert. Am I reading too much into this that it became toxic - did he leave on his terms? Maybe due diligence by Bartlett and MFC not thorough enough.

Look, I know nothing of the details here, but I will say, if we've banned her speaking purely because of that article, Bartlett is a moron and our leadership is questionable.

Were you the large Western Australian female ice addict that greeted me at Perth airport on Saturday morning, Ethan, and told me that I should go back to [censored] Melbourne, because you were a born and bred Western Australian? Or was that someone else?

Sorry not me AF, I was born in Melbourne. 

The poor woman sounds like she’s not only failed at life, but also failed at being a clapped out meth-rat. What sort of dedicated ice-addict is overweight?

Obviously Gary Pert didn't want Caro there. Very clear cut. I don't hear much about Pert, but assuming he is still at our club then I suspect he does not want Caro there. I would be very surprised if he did welcome Caro. She has spent the best part of the 5 years sh*t canning him, and implying things without evidence. MFC is not a democracy where everyone is welcome to come to our functions and sh*t can our staff, make up stories and destabilise our club. Whoever made the call that Caro was banned, good on them. My full support. I want her - and anyone else who criticises us - no where near our club. The media in this country are beyond pathetic and no serious organisation should give them a platform to spew hate.
