Chris Judd to Carlton

Chris Judd Blues

CHRIS Judd says he chose Carlton because they are a powerful club and are going places. The Blues and West Coast completed their trade deal for the Brownlow medallist late in Trade week.

Judd says he was always confident that the clubs would agree on trade and deal.

Judd also said that the past few weeks had been "pretty hectic" but he was delighted to have the paperwork completed and with his move to Carlton signed, sealed and delivered.

Judd is thought to be getting a five-year, million contract with the Blues which will complete the biggest player transfer since Tony Lockett left St Kilda for Sydney in 1994.

Carlton completed the (I think cheap) trade with key forward Josh Kennedy and first and second round selections, number three and 20 overall, in the national draft in return for Judd and the Eagles' third-round selection, number 46 overall.

"I didn't have huge doubts that the deal would get done," Judd said at a media conference at Carlton's Princes Park headquarters.

Judd said that he had selected Carlton because he thought they were a "powerful Melbourne club" that was going places (cough).

"They have got a young and exciting list," Judd said.

"I could be part of something from the ground up, that was the exciting part of it for me."

Judd had battled a groin injury for the second half of the season and had an operation in Sydney two weeks ago (The Blues will be preying that the injury wont return in 2008).

He said the surgery has helped ease some of the pain in his groin, but he will know more at a check-up in six weeks.

Carlton chief executive Greg Swann hailed it a "fantastic day" for the Blues after a "few anxious moments on the way".

"It's one of the most important days we've had here (at the football club)," Swann said.

"Chris Judd is the premier player in the competition and will be a major boost to Carlton as the club embarks on what is a new and exciting era. We look forward to officially welcoming Chris to the Carlton Football Club later this afternoon," Mr Swann said.

Conclusion :

Whilst Carlton has got the good end of the bargain, there's still many factors involved including the slug out of the salary cap, the dodgy groin and ankle problems (The Blues will be hoping that it wont return) and the longevity of Judd's career and on Judd's side of the deal - will Carlton be a (serious) finals contender in the next 5 to 10 years / until the end of Judds playing career, it would be a shame for Judd to finish at a poor performing club.

O.J. Simpson's lawyer says he will ask for Simpson to be released from jail today, a day after prosecutors charged him with 11 criminal offenses, including first-degree kidnapping, which carries the possible life sentence.

He has been held since Sunday in protective custody in a single 7-foot by 14-foot jail cell in a unit with 36 other inmates, separated from more than 3,000 other detainees in the downtown Las Vegas jail, police said.

Chris Judd in Melbourne

The most sought-after player in the AFL, who announced this week he was quitting the Eagles to return to his home town of Melbourne, will see his surgeon this morning about his ongoing groin problem.

He will then meet Carlton officials, likely to be CEO Greg Swann and football operations manager Stephen Icke, today or tomorrow in the first of four interviews with interested clubs.

Judd is also lined up to speak with Essendon, Hawthorn and Melbourne in the next four days.

It is believed up to seven Victorian clubs are still in the hunt for Judd, with the star midfielder expected to speak with Collingwood once the Pies finish their finals campaign.

AFL Drugs Controversy

AFL Football
News Articles
Drug Scandal

Links : AFL | AFL News

THE AFL illicit drugs policy was in crisis last night as confidential medical records identifying two players who had tested positive to illegal drugs were sold to a commercial television station.

The documents contain explosive claims against two players from the same club and became the subject of a legal injunction last night, taken out by the doctor who is treating the two men.

The documents also contain claims that other players at the club regularly use drugs.

The legal action came too late to stop Channel Seven airing the allegations as part of its news bulletin. The report did not identify the players but did disclose their club, as well as details about the frequency and nature of their drug use.

The club was scrambling last night to try to learn the names of the players from the AFL, damaged by the public leak of information that senior club officials were not entitled to be told.

Under the AFL's controversial three-strikes illicit drug policy, clubs cannot be told of a player's drug use until he has returned a third positive test. That system — attacked by the Federal Government as too lenient in recent months — was in crisis last night.

The documents, which were paid for by Channel Seven, appear to be medical records of two players, referred to Ivanhoe's Victorian Addiction Centre by the clubs.

Under the three-strikes policy, after the second positive test, a club doctor is told.

Conclusion :

Leave the players and their private lives alone, we have no rights to their private lives and what they do in their spare time is up to them, as long as they're not taking performance enhancing drugs it shouldn't be a matter of public debate or released to the public.

If they were a musician it would be acceptable and laughed upon like Britney, Nicole Richie etc.

What about the injections during games, the pain killer shots ? aren't these a enhancing drug ? what about Brisbane's reign of premierships typically the Grandfinals against Collingwood where numerous players felt the force of many hard hits only to get injections so they would no longer feel the pain and or impact of the hard hitting game, these should be ruled out shouldn't they ? after all they are performance enhancing in effect. Compared to party drugs that don't produce in game brilliance but actually the opposite effect.

INJURIES – Carlton: Longmuir (shoulder)

Coaches Said :

Denis Pagan Said : "The last three weeks we've been terrible at the start, (but) we get together and they're able to take a step back and see the issues that are causing them concern and then we go," he said."It's still very disappointing - our start to the game - and you know the side that's in front at quarter-time has probably got a 75 per cent chance of winning."

Mark Wiliams said : "They played particularly well. It was great coming back, and coming back to Telstra after last week's win. It was nice to think that the young players I thought played particularly well and got some good opportunities.""Quite a few of the senior players led the way and gave them some nice touches."I thought Surjan played well again, Salopek played well, Chaplin did a good job, Symes. He was under an injury cloud until really today and I thought it was good for them."

Carlton FC let another Game slip - AFL Blog 2006

The Blues squandered a chance to turn their fortunes around in going down to Richmond by eight points in an error-riddled round five match at the MCG on Friday night.

After a bright start to the season, Carlton has now lost four-in-a-row and this was another tight contest, but the fans, the coaching staff and the players will be desperately hoping the team can rebound against Collingwood next week.

The Blues started well in a free-flowing opening quarter for a 19-point advantage at the first change, however the Tigers controlled the game from thereon, finding the lead in the third quarter despite some inaccuracy in front of goal before holding off a late Carlton challenge for a 12.20 (92) to 11.18 (84) victory.

For the Blues, Ryan Houlihan and skipper Anthony Koutoufides worked tirelessly to find the ball 29 times each, while Heath Scotland and Andrew Walker were creative from defence with 27 and 25 possessions respectively.

Matthew Richardson, despite being guilty of poor kicking with 3.5, was handy for the Tigers, plucking 12 marks. He complemented the work further up the field by Joel Bowden, who set up numerous attacks from defence with his 25 possessions, and Andrew Raines with 23.

Number one draft pick Marc Murphy then produced a superb running goal from just inside 50 before Koutoufides crumbed and goaled, giving the Blues an 11-point advantage.An errant disposal by Tivendale squandered a certain Tigers goal and the Blues made them pay deep in time on through Deluca for a 19-point break at quarter time.

Goals to Chris Hyde and Richardson narrowed the gap to three points in the second term, which the wasteful Tigers dominated, but a classy finish by Walker from just inside the boundary line steadied the Blues.

Andrew Krakouer and Kayne Pettifer stopped the Richmond rot with clever snaps either side of a pair of Waite goals before Troy Simmonds ended the quarter appropriately by kicking his team's ninth behind of the term.

Goals to Andrew Krakouer and Tivendale doubled the heartbreak for the Blues and the Tigers were out to a 14-point advantage at the final change.

Under no pressure in the final term, Richard Tambling failed to find his target and from the resultant turnover Walker was able to carry the ball up the other end, where Waite snapped truly, but Pettifer replied two minutes later.

A late goal by Eddie Betts gave the Blues hope of stealing an unlikely win but the Tigers managed to hold on for their second victory of the year.

RICHMOND: 2.3, 7.12, 11.15, 12.20 (92)
CARLTON: 5.4, 8.7, 9.13, 11.18 (84)

Carlton GOALS – Waite 3, Fevola 2, Whitnall, Koutoufides, Murphy, Walker, Deluca, Betts
Carlton BEST – Walker, Scotland, Koutoufides, Simpson, Whitnall, Murphy, Houlihan
