Glenn Strachan has been appointed as coach of our VFLW team.
Strachan retains his role as AFLW senior assistant coach and that will provide stronger alignment between the two programs. I think it is a.very positive appointment.

A bunch of Carlton players, and some recently departed players, have gathered on the Sunshine Coast to celebrate the wedding of Jack Silvagni and Grace.
Congratulations and best wishes to the newlyweds 🥂

Good win by the girls.
Jess Good has improved out of sight. Two rucks who have an impact around the ground and on the scoreboard make us hard to beat. Gab Pound must be having her best season.

One of the giants of my musical experience, Robbie Robertson passed away yesterday at 80 years of age.
Robbie was lead guitarist for Bob Dylan in the 1960s and early 1970s but really came to my attention as guitarist and songwriter with the Band with classic songs like the Weight, Up on Cripple Creek, the Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, Ain’t Got No Home and many others. RIP Robbie.

I only discovered the music of Sixto Rodriguez relatively recently but what an unusual career he had; blissfully unaware of his popularity and success in southern Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
Compared to Bob Dylan and Cat Stevens, his music seemed to strike a chord with Deadheads and fans of protest songs. I can’t listen to a lot of Rodriguez but I don’t mind playing an album occasionally. RIP Rodriguez.

In the crazy world that is boxing, Tim Tszyu is about to become WBO super welterweight world champion.
Jermell Charlo will be stripped of his title when he fights Canelo Alvarez and Tszyu will become the champion. Tszyu’s next fight will become a world title defence. I think that Tim is a worthy champion but I’m sure that he would prefer to win the belt in the ring.

Tayla had the tripe belted out of her by Millicent Agboegbulen in their super welterweight bout.
I didn’t watch the fight but Tayla’s battered face suggests that her technique needs work if she’s going up against girls who can box. And then there’s CTE …

Nothing compares to you.

The AFL has announced that the 2023 AFLW season will kick off during the AFL bye week in September. However, the duration of the season is still being negotiated as part of the CBA.
I really don't think that the AFL has a firm vision for the AFLW. Uncertainty about the season's structure and duration won't and credibility to the competition.

Barry Humphries has died, aged 89.
I guess that he’s been a constant purveyor of humour and satire for most of my life. My first real exposure to Barry was through “the Adventures of Barry McKenzie … that’s the comic, not the movie. The movie was good, but not as good as the comic. Barry was really a living treasure and his passing is a sad loss.

There's not a lot of information about the game but there's a lot of interest in how the AFL-listed players went.
I'll copy some information from the Twitter feed to provide the bare bones. Flesh them out as you can. Carlton: 0.4.4 1.6.12 8.11.59 12.14.86 Richmond: 3.3.21 7.5.37 9.8.62 12.9.81 Goals: Dow 4, Lemmey 3, Moschetti 2, Pittonet 1, Crocker 1, Carrol 1 It's good to see that we're not relying on Crocker to score most of our goals and even better to see young Lemmey getting among the goals. There's a report on the Richmond website but the only Carlton player who gets a mention is Paddy Dow for "jagging a goal"

The VFL boys are playing the Borough on Thursday evening at Princes Park.
Marc Pittonet, Mitch McGovern, Jack Martin, Matthew Owies and Josh Honey are scheduled to play and that should help determine our lineup for Round 1.

The VFL boys handed out a bit of a shellacking; 16.10.106 to 5.7.37.
Did anyone see the game? Apparently Lemmey and O'Keeffe did well for newbies, and Dow and Cahill picked up where they left off last season.
