Teague had a good reputation as an assistant and it is a different role to being a Head Coach. The fact that he is a failed senior coach should not stop us , as someone else said so was Leppa

If he comes to Richmond I would query whether he is in fact a failed senior coach. or whether he was senior coach at a failed club.

(if he doesnt come to Richmond he is obviously a dud.)

agree but it ain't comparing apples to apples.

if Teague rolls up to an interview for an assistant coach position, you look at his work as an assistant coach, focusing on one part of the machine. head coaches do so many other things these days it would be an unfair comparison.

only question mark around Teague is his potential as future head coach.

Our assistant coaching bench has looked bear since the departure of Leppa and McCrae.

The fact that Dimma has had under him at various stages Leppa, McCrae, Caracella, Rutten and Kingsley - is a big factor in why our very good team became a great team.

Assuming he is a good cultural fit, Teague would be a great addition.

Parkin, Walls, Pagan and Malthouse were all failed senior coaches at the Blues - its a right of passage for anyone going there.

Parkin and walls were premiership coaches at Carlton so hardly failed but in recent times yes, from Wayne Brittain on !!

Carltons biggest problem is they still haven't got out of the 70's, 80's, 90's mentality of Hail Mary Big names be it Players or Coaches.

Off Field Carlton haven't got it right and still cant seem to get their @^[email protected]$ high and tight and pull uniformly in the same direction, there is more power plays off field seemingly than on it.

Judd, Malthouse, Pagan all the last true big name vestiges of this old mantra at Princes Park, however the beast reared its head with the possibility of Clarkson being available, then they burned the next big name coach in Lyon in the process.

Malthouse went to Carlton out of spite and malice and for a paycheck desperate to beat the Maggots and Figgie.

Mickey went to the wrong club, and Pagan just went for the Godfather paycheck he couldn't refuse.

Sadly for Denis he didn't have Carey, Longmire, Archer, Fairly, Blakey, Allison, Grant, Schwass,, Simpson, Stevens, McAdam, Martyn and McKernan,

The dominant Carlton sides of the 80's and 90's were strewn with signings from WA and SA and big transfers from other clubs mainly Greg Wells from the Demons, Earl Spalding, also from the Demons, David Rhys-Jones, and Greg Diesel Williams from Sydney, Harry Madden from the Bombers, and Dean Rice from the Saints.

Kernahan (SA), Naley (SA), Motley (SA), Bradley (SA), Mackay (SA), Richard Dennis (WA), Jon Dorotich (WA), Maclure (WA), Fitzpatrick (WA), Hunter (WA), Bosustow(WA), Ralph (WA), Blackwell (WA) amongst others all recruited from interstate leagues and all had a major bearing on the success of the CFC during that time.

A few home grown champs along the way no doubt helped with Bruce Doull, Southby, Wayne Dominator Johnston, Wayne Harmes, Peter Dean, Silvagni and Kouta but Carlton were a club that recruited and cherry picked heavily from the SANFL and WAFL and other clubs with big bags of cash.

To a certain extent they are still doing it chasing hail Mary signings.

But rather than cherry picking the very top end talent they used to corner the market with in the glory years they find themselves chasing lower hanging fruit but still paying a premium penny for it.

I can’t help thinking that the appointment of Greg Williams in more of the same .
Years ago a friend of mine joined the Blue suits, who were the business types coterie for the Club. He hated it and only lasted a couple of years and he told me that these guys ( they were all men) acted liked they owned the club. They were so used to running business and telling people what to do they thought they could do the same at CFC.
I reckon that attitude still exists and on top of that you have old players like Williams and Kernahan still wielding a lot of power with close ties to the blue suits. They think they are entitled but the reality is that footy clubs survive and thrive with the everyday people being engaged. That’s what our club has done really well.
Entitlement doesn’t work anymore with Salary caps and soft caps

Long may they live in the past, as long as they don't find a way around the salary cap etc.

Bolton has gone to Collingwood with Leppa
Who has Chuckles ??

Poor ol Chuckles the Blues dressed him up like a shiny star then threw him into the volcano like a Virgin Sacrifice from times long gone.

Come to think of it they just did the same thing with Geisch .... I mean Teaguey!!.
