Caro's latest rumourmongering.


RalphiusMaximus

Recommended Posts

Footy Classified tonight.  Caro is trying to defend her stance that Clarko will be coaching Collingwood next year.  The other panelists challenged her on whether she has any actual sources on that stance.  Well, no, but the facts are that Clako is unsigned and Buckley's position has never been shakier and while Hawthorn refuse to announce a new contract for Clarko they are contributing to this sort of speculation.  That right there is quality journalism.  She takes one fact, some completely unrelated speculation and makes up a story to bignote herself.

Surely he's just as likely to be coaching the Tigers next year, given he's evidently booked in for a frontal lobotomy...

So I assume you will write her a full apology when it comes true?

She's just speculating and throwing it out as an unlikely possibility. She even threw Roosy's name in there at the end. Nothing to see here but an attention seeking 'star' journo.

On a more interesting subject, they just threw to the ad break saying they would be discussing the Demons' win next.  I think this is the first time I've heard it referred to as Melbourne winning rather than Collingwood dropping the game.  Nice that somebody is willing to admit we were at the ground.

Indeed! Today I've watched: Access All Areas and Footy Feed on AFL.com, AFL tonight, AFL 360, On the Couch on Fox and listening to SEN all day with little to no mention of our actual performance.

She's not usually so heavy on speculation, which is why I don't mind Caro. 

She's doing a fantastic job of negotiation for Clarko though. Not that they can't afford it but he can almost write whatever number he wants to get paid now. He's shipped off his best assistants so they can't even turf him for one of them either.

Maybe he's sick of winning so many premierships.

He's already climbed the mountain with one club, he should be up there with Barassi, Hafey, Sheedy, Jeans, Matthews.

And he has the chance to entrench a dynasty, if he hasn't already.

Can't see why Collingwood would be attractive to him.

Caro's sources are the best in the business. Rather than shoot the messenger why not talk more about the issue raised?

Much as I hate her for the Tanking saga , she is usually correct and you are correct about her sources.

She is rarely wrong so I wouldn't be surprised.

I think it is interesting that you accuse Caro of overreaching  and yet you claim that Caro's stance is that Clarko will be coaching Collingwood next year.

I heard her speak and I just read her article and all  she is speculating on is the longevity of Buckley if Collingwoods continue and further suggested that Clarko is not Hawthorns coach until ink is on paper.

She has always been clever as she takes a series of facts ( or in many cases opinions) and points the way, allowing the reader to draw a conclusion, which is exactly what this poster has done without actually voicing that conclusion herself.

And they gave Melbourne all of 20 sec of airtime. Tokenism. 

Wonder if they'll bring up the two 'not 15' kicks near the end of the Saints vs Hawks game....

Finally we're not the headline...remember all those shows with more than enough time spent on the disaster that was Melbourne over the last number of years.

Let other clubs carry the can now, I know it would be good to get a bit more coverage but if the trade off is winning games then I'm happy with that.

Just to tidy up a loose end, on Footy Classified it was made clear that Clarkson would never take Dimma's job. They are not just coaches but extremely close friends. And I agree with Nutbean - Caro didn't say Clarkson would coach Collingwood. She said just enough for some people to think she said it (and put herself in the position of being able to say "you heard it hear first" if the unthinkable, one-in-a-million, highly unlikely set of circumstances actually happens).

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
