Jourgo's right.

Hardie's hatred goes back to the late 80's/early 90's. He fell out with Malthouse in 1986 at Footscray and was offered a spot at the forming WCE. He wanted to be captain and chucked the shits when it wasn't offered. By the time he'd fallen out with Brisbane and wanted to come home Malthouse was the coach, so no chance.

Don't know about why with Hackdorn, but the hatred is deep in this one.

Purple dislike will be fleeting. WC hatred is embedded.

Dockers appoint former Dogs CEO as new chief

Love how the first thing the article mentions is:
FREMANTLE has appointed former Sydney and Western Bulldogs midfielder Simon Garlick as its new chief executive.

Garlick, who played 137 games for the Bulldogs and 44 for Sydney between 1994-2004,

Who gives s shit what position he played or how many games.

Why don't they try appointing somebody that actually knows how to run a a multi-million dollar enterprise, instead of jus more jobs for their mates.

NEW FREMANTLE coach Justin Longmuir has made his first appointment, luring former teammate Josh Carr as an assistant.
:lol: :lol: :lol:

What, was Headland not available?

What's his role going to be? "Special Assistant in charge of Strategy, Punching, and Brawling."

Come on CD. It's a bit of background for the punters who don't know who he is. Explains that he has a background as both a player and administrator (CEO).

No need to get excited.

As for the Josh Carr appointment. F*** me dead. OIC club culture maybe? Bringing him into a club would be like employing Ben Cousins as your clubs ASADA liaison officer.

Firstly, why is that important or even relevant. When Fyfe needs another reco, do they want the surgery performed by a former player?

Could explain why the food at footy games is always shit, they've probably put Chicky in charge of cooking.

And particularly at Freo, it just seems like a return to the bad old days. Jobs for mates instead of hiring based on ability.

I find it's satisfying that the little brothers are finally embracing Eagles culture. After years of trying saying they are different - which meant hopeless - they have finally turned to us for help. Good luck to them, about time they brought pride to the state.

They have turned to us before, just hope that Le Cras does not get chewed up and spat out onto the same scrap heap as Sumich.

Sumich helped get them to a GF. But yes, in the end chewed up, but that's everywhere in football, stay too long...
