Carlton sack Angwin and fine Norman

Carlton will summarily dismiss Karl Norman if the AFL club catches the young player associating with his former team-mate Laurence Angwin, who they sacked on Wednesday.

That extraordinary provision is one of Norman's conditions for remaining on the Blues' list, following this week's controversy involving the pair.

Carlton president Ian Collins confirmed the club had dumped Angwin after an incident on Monday in which it is understood where the two players arrived at a team meeting under the influence of drugs.

Collins also announced the club had fined Norman $5000, would suspend him for this Saturday's game against the Kangaroos, apply "conditions and stringent constraints" for the next six months and insist he undergo regular counselling.

He described these measures as "one last chance" for Norman.

"It's fair to say there was another further act, on top of a lot of other acts, which we had to deal with," Collins said.

"In the case of Karl Norman, who knows? In separating the two, we may get an opportunity to progress with one," Collins said.

"One of the conditions in him remaining here is that he does not fraternise with Laurence going forward."

When asked if that provision was legal, Collins replied: "We don't mind - if he wants to associate with him, it will be a.... breach of his arrangements with this club.

"It's an agreement between two parties.
