Chris Judd set to quit as Carlton captain

AAP, Yahoo!7 November 30, 2012, 11:03 am

Gun midfielder Chris Judd is set to step down as Carlton AFL skipper to concentrate on his own game.

After five years at the helm of the Blues since arriving from West Coast, the 29-year-old Judd is ready to hand over the captaincy duties.

Marc Murphy and Andrew Carrazzo have been touted as the leading candidates to lead the side.

"I think his desire would be to just concentrate on playing good footy and perhaps handing it over to somebody else," Carlton chief executive Greg Swann told SEN radio on Friday.

The Blues arrived back from their high altitude training camp on Sunday and Swann said he was yet to speak to Judd.

But Swann said he would understand if Judd elected to step down from the role.

"There's a fair bit in it ... some of the things the captain does around the club, various coterie groups and sponsors. There's a lot of time and effort in it and you've got to be up for it, and of course there's the on-field stuff," he said.

"It's a big commitment."

Swann said the club was preparing for its appearance at the grievance tribunal to challenge the AFL's ruling that Judd's $200,000-a-year third-party payment from Visy must be included in the salary cap.

"When you go from $200,000 to zero overnight something's got to give," Swann said, referring to the AFL's judgement on value of Judd's work.

"You have to provide a whole heap of information and the AFL go through it and if they're not happy with what you've done they will look and say you've probably only done $150,000 worth of work so the other 50 has got to go in the cap.

"We've done that for the last four years and never had any problem and then all of a sudden it goes from $200,000 worth of work to zero."

Swann said AFL clubs were unhappy there had been no transition period so they could adjust their salary payments.

    LOLOL The poms are wankers in life and sport. They nearly lost the war to the Germans but thanks to the Aussies and the Yanks prevailed. They have had to rely on the tough bronzed Aussies to bale them out of losing all wars and rely on us to show you how to play sports and be champions. They can only win on their own dirty soil and as history has shown they are reduced to a pathetic squandering country outside of their own confines. The only war they could win is the Falklands and even then it was close. Great Brittan are useless at sport and have shown that even they invented the game cricket have been smashed by every country from pillar to post. It took them a quarter of a decade to beat Australia in Australia. It takes four countries, England Scotland Wales and Ireland to which they can draw sports people from and even then they fail. Great Brittan, what’s great about it, has been kicked out of every country it invaded. They sent the convicts to Australia and now they are kicking down the doors to immigrate there. Their queen (not ours) is a taxrapist who rips of her own people so she can live a life of luxury. England, or as it’s known, little Pakistan, is now ruled by Muslims. We all sit back and laugh at you as you sing rule Britannia as you rule no one now. We laugh even more how you “keep a stiff upper lip” and drink your cups of tea and have cucumber sandwiches with your little pinky extended. We continue to laugh how you still don’t know how to shower, hence the name smelly pom. Your country is no longer a financial leader as you still haven’t recovered from the pounding the Germans gave you. Not only are you wankers in sport but you are wankers in life or as you pommy bustards say “tossers”. No wonder your country is run by a queen. We shall always be your masters in life and you will always be humble to us. Your miserable country with your miserable weather has produced many a lilly white pom. No wonder Australia has had to control the large influx of lilly white poms running away from not great Brittan. Even America kicked your backsides in a war. From rule the world you can’t even rule your own streets. And when you do get to Australia we all laugh how you welt like rotten fruit under our summer. Still Australia needs poms as we need someone to the menial and shite jobs. Even your beer is krap as its always hot. And you women much prefer the superiority of the Aussie male against the lily white pommy male. Even your cricket team is full of imports and soon the real Englishman will be a head wobbler and wear a turban.
