Broken Father-Sons

Sometimes, due to the draft rules at the time, or the passing interests of recruiters and even a strong difference in opinion as to the quality of a young son, the Father/Son link is broken. Carlton has enjoyed and suffered in both respects; we've lost sons to opposition Clubs, and gained sons of opposition Champs and lesser lights. The first table tracks the sons lost to opposition Clubs:
