And don't be surprised if Carlton and/or St Kilda have been sniffing around, maybe having a chat with Scott's manager.
Possible that Scott is clearing the decks, watching the rest of the season and unfold and then moving into a new club at the season's end.

If Scott ends up at Carltank then its pretty clearly happened as rumoured. He's been offered the job and probably told lolnorf that he's leaving at the end of the year and they've said go immediately.

"I haven't been offered any job because I've got a job at the moment at the Sydney Swans."

@sydneyswans coach John Longmire has dismissed suggestions he's heading to @nmfcofficial.


Interpret that as you like.

Longmire is no idiot.
He's doing a Kevin Sheedy

Jostling for a bigger contact with Sydney

spot on. 10 years ago Norf chased him for their coaching job when he was Paul Roos's assistant at Sydney and ended up using this to negotiate a succession plan at the swans. Now that Norf have the vacancy open again, he's gonna try and do a sheedy by pushing for money and a contract extension. good luck to him for doing that, but it does seem like he's playing them

It's gone from #lolnorf to #lonelynorf. No-one wants them. Not even their past top players.

Huge offer from lolnorf about to be given to Horse. Get ready for another rejection to happen. Horse won't leave Swans.

Bloody hell. Sooner or later someones going to accidentally open the door to the room at the top of the stairs on the left in #lolnorf HQ and are going to die from the avalanch of cash that they haven't been able to spend and have been hoarding like Grandpa!!!

:hihi

Do they really have it or is it from a loan? Signs of desperation from this club. If they're just singling out Longmire (all because of success as one of their former players and coaching at Swans) and no others, they're making a huge mistake.

They are like Carlton - still expect to buy their way up the ladder.

They should go through the process and pick the best available, they may end up with horse, they may not.

It’s just going to add to the growing sum of money people have knocked North back on.

What’s it up to now? $15m?
