BLUESEUM - History of the Carlton Football Club


PAST PLAYER - 1994: James Cook

1994 - James Cook. HERE we celebrate Blues who played in 1994, some 30 years ago....

James Cook, recruited from Nth Hobart, was a player capable of almost anything - from the brilliant, such as long goals and huge marks, to the ridiculous, such as falling over his own feet and playing on after a mark after the siren had sounded. Picked with #2 in the 1990 National Draft, something always threatened to happen around the burly Tasmanian. His was surrounded in controversy even before he was recruited, he had his father send out a letter to all the AFL clubs telling them that he was only prepared to play for either Carlton or Melbourne! He warned the other clubs that he was not prepared to play for them. Now that's confidence!
