CB hears that the George Patterson Y&R Melbourne suit on Fosters, group account director Paul McMillan, has resigned. Speculation is that he will eventually team up with 'Big Ad' boys Ant Keogh and Grant Rutherford (and possibly 'Boony' Josh Stephens), all of whom resigned a couple of weeks back, to form a new agency.
All four are still at the agency - at least for the next four weeks, but no one, of course, is returning calls...

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw them pass out at 31 Flavors last night.

God I love watching the empire slowly crumble.

I wonder how long it'll take before Hamish Soprano calls up from New York.

Speculation#1: Melbourne start-up financed by a multinational hotshop with the objective of slowly poaching Fosters from WPP. Deal sealed in Cannes 2006.

Speculation#2: Heraghty goes to Fosters. Fully understands that the creativity behind recent successes are 'the boys' and not James. Proposes to cut out the middle man and full creative freedom if the boys form a start-up.

Speculation#3: Smoke screen before the boys join 'Papa James' again at Clems once the heads start rolling.

I reckon speculation #2 is pretty close to the money.

Judging by how much Patts would have raped off the Fosters account over the years (a fact not lost on Heraghty by the way,) a startup would make sound financial sense.

I see Carlton Draft going to said startup. VB will stay at Patts for historical reasons - other projects will start to slip away when the spotlight's off.

Let's hope Patts Melbourne doesn't end up turning into Patts Sydney.

Where does John Murphy - the man who approved the big ad and is currently unemployed - fit into all this?

Not entirely true 6:25. However, Josh Stephens is the real deal. Multi-awarded wunderkind with Droga stripes painted all over him. And top bloke to match. Watch this space. And don't forget his name. Chances are you'll be asking for a job from him one day. Guaranteed.

I reckon these guys would be great in a newsagency!
But can any of them work the cash register?

It amuses me that so many people in this industry are such bitches. Yes, it may be a shock that people actually move on from agencies and further their careers, but it happens. I am amazed that, what I am assuming are grown men, are sooking like 15 year old girls. Good fun for people to watch others make suitable tits of themselves.

TWAT. Heh. He said Twat. It's funny how 'Aussie' creatives get all high-brow and revert back to pommy slang.

Yeah, but make sure you pronounce it TWAT and not TWOT.
