Bryce Gibbs steps down
as a Carlton leader to focus on his game but hopes to return to the leadership group in the future.
"As a leader, you strive to play consistent footy every week and probably at times I didn't feel I was doing that last year and maybe found it hard to give some guys some feedback on different things that maybe I wasn't doing myself," Gibbs said.
"I'd like to think I'm well respected within the playing group and what I say around the place is valued (and) the players have certainly given their feedback to me around those issues. Hopefully in the future I could step back in there."

On his first day at Carlton training, Mick Malthouse says Bryce Gibbs has been targeted for a greater role in the midfield in 2013.
"He has got to be able to do eight to 10 minutes (in the midfield), and that's quite significant," Malthouse said.
"That takes half a quarter away from others to give them a little bit of relief and also to be able to play in other positions, which I'm pretty keen to do."

Carlton coach Brett Ratten and Blues champion Chris Judd believe midfielder Bryce Gibbs is poised to become one of the best players in the AFL.
"They might be throwing a bit of a challenge to me, but the coaches and players are all really good in challenging each other all the time, especially this year as we want to go one better and make the top four," Gibbs said.
"A lot of guys had great pre-seasons, but I am probably at the stage of my career where I'm ready to take the next step."

Bryce Gibbs is on the verge of signing a new deal with Carlton, saying he is very happy at the club.
"I'm very happy with how everything is going with me and the club and where we're headed, so hopefully it can sort itself out soon," Gibbs said.
"I'm not one to say 'let's put talks off until the end of the year' - it just causes speculation and headaches and whatnot. The club is working with my management as we speak, and when the right deal is finalised and both parties are happy, I'm sure I'll sign."

Bryce Gibbs and Brett Deledio tell the Herald Sun that they will not be entertaining any offers to move from their clubs.
"I'd sign a deal tomorrow if it was the right one," Gibbs said.
"I'm not going to say, 'Put it off until the end of the year' or 'Let's sign it tomorrow', but I'm happy where I am. When the terms and conditions are met by both parties and everyone is happy I'll sign and whenever that is I'm not too sure."
Like Gibbs, Deledio also says he is happy being at his club, Richmond.
"I love the place. They've always been really good to me and I'm hoping to have it all sorted out in the not-too-distant future, but these things take time and I can't expect it to be rushed," Deledio said.
"If something comes up and it's right to go, then we'll be right to go. It's definitely not the case that I want to wait until the end of the season to get it done. It's all about getting the right deal and making sure everything is done right."

Carlton has expanded its leadership group to seven by adding Marc Murphy, Bryce Gibbs and Jordan Russell.
It's a pretty stronger indicator that you've got something to offer the group and I'm pretty proud of that. I'm looking forward to improving my leadership skills and qualities by being in the leadership group," Gibbs said.
"I think I can bring some experience, the past four or five years and 100 games now, so it's time to step up as a consistent contributor to the team - and I think some of my opinions will help with some of the younger guys coming through," Murphy added.

Bryce Gibbs had 45 possessions against West Coast equalling Greg Williams' Carlton record set in 1993, but he says he had no idea why the crowd was cheering every disposal.
"You don't notice it too much - it's like any other time I suppose, you just get it and get rid of it," he said.
"You can't worry about the possessions too much - I didn't know what the crowd was going on about then (Marc) Murphy was saying you are racking it up - it was weird."

"There's just a bit of bruising. It's not too bad. I don't think about it when I'm playing or anything like that.
"I just strap it up. It feels a little bit sore after the game, but during the game it's fine.
"I'm getting there slowly. I played a couple of all right games and I played a couple of poor games.
"I really wanted to find that consistency this year and hopefully I can put a few better performances in the next couple of weeks."
