Kevin Sheedy on North Melbourne moving to Tasmania, lost the plot, response, Essendon board, Caroline Wilson

North Melbourne is said to be “outraged” by Essendon board member Kevin Sheedy’s comments about his move to Tasmania, with Caroline Wilson saying he has “lost the plot”.

Former Bombers manager Sheedy hit the headlines on Tuesday with his strange response to a question about Alastair Clarkson’s relationship with the club.

“I think it would be great for Clarkson to go to North Melbourne, I wouldn’t be surprised, take him to Tasmania,” Sheedy said on FIVEaa radio.

“You never know what’s in other people’s minds, do you?

It’s closed to Tasmania with the state government, and everybody wants North Melbourne to move because we’ve got a lot of teams here… a lot of teams in Melbourne, a lot of people in Australia think we’re going to do it, so I’m never going to star. .

“It might even involve Tasmania, you never know.”

Sheedy, 74, was speaking on other matters during the interview. Asked if he felt sorry for Ben Root when asked about his career, the Bombers coach instead spoke about how they live on opposite sides of Melbourne.

The interview is reported to have angered Kangaroos board members, who have rejected any proposal to move their club to Tasmania.

“You and I have spoken to people in North Melbourne who are very angry when Kevin Sheedy talks about his club and Tasmania, and it’s a very close situation for both clubs at the moment,” Eddie McGuire said on Nine’s Footy Classified.

Carolyn Wilson replied: “Lost the plot, Kevin.

“After those comments, I don’t see his role on the board being maintained.

“Matthew[Lloyd]you talk about quick fixes and little things that look good for the club (as problems) – to be aggressive with Kevin across the board, that was one of them.

“One of the greatest Essendonians ever, but he was not a strong board member. Ben doesn’t support Ruth.

“To play a paid radio show and suggest another club go to Tasmania, I don’t think that’s what another board member should be doing. The North Melbourne board is furious, Essendon is really upset.

Sheedy is an Australian Football Hall of Fame legend after playing and coaching a VFL-AFL record 929 games at Richmond (playing), Essendon and GSS (coaching).
