He’s done everything right so far. Reckon getting Cook across just about sees off Vince’s circus.

Sorry guys, I'm not getting excited until I see results.

I know some are frothing at the mouth, but when we appointed Swann as CEO we got a bona-fide gun and we still went backwards (he might have been the malthouse champion).

That’s how starved of success we have had over the last 20 years , that we are cheering for a administrator instead of player

I can’t wait to buy my brian cook tie from the Carlton shop

No need to apologise for acting in self preservation, mate. I’d rather be pleasantly surprised with a good result than crushed with another poor one.

I enjoyed the company of Swanny many times and think he is truly one of life's great people. Swanny's on;y downside from my point of view was that he wanted to be more the head of football at the club rather than the CEO. He loved, loved the footy side (all the nitty gritty and draft week) and the rest was just his job.

Great guy, but from what I see and read about Cook, I think he is more well rounded as an actual CEO.

Just an observation.

I am Impressed with the Sayers process
Tried to get best in Clarkson
Pushed back on Ross when he didn’t want to go in the process

Got a good panel to do the interviews

In the meantime got Cook

Didn’t shirk the hard decisions including doing an external review

Didn’t knee jerk to media hysteria

Not sure Sayers has taken a misstep since coming onboard regardless of what has been said in the Media.

Williams - Steely resolve
Cook - Steely resolve
Voss - Uber Steely resolve

Very impressive media debut from Cook and Voss.

Agree. Don't think he has done much wrong since starting at pres.
