    Thread in rather poor taste.
    Collingwood not traveling well but these things ebb and flow in a season and this season isn't shaping to be as unbalanced as last year. Likely Collingwood will feature into September.
    You don't need to rub in a disappointing performance.
    Who cares what the Collingwood fans are like.

    I wouldn't be too smug there if I were you. Its very early in the piece to be patting yourselves on the back too much.

    A lot of what you said in this post is actually correct.

    Carlton is untested against a top 4 side still. Because Collingwood didn't play like a top 4 side at any time last night.

    If you think you can beat Hawthorn, Geelong, WCE, or an inform Collingwood like that, you are in for a shock.

    carlton actually embarrassed the pies last night. will happen more often than not too a lot of sides they come up against.
    and before you start coming up with the old cliches of playing sides such as west coast, geelong, and hawthorn, just remember that they havent come up against carlton yet either.

    swagger my ar$e. You are the most hated supporters in the AFL by far.

    But a tank or two can buy a competitive team.;)

    Boring, If you cannot recognize how good Carlton were last night then you don't understand the game. Who gives a stuff about whether you think Carlton are any good. i don't.

    Im not sure why people are laughing that Collingwood are shizen at the moment. I would much rather see the Pies up and about destroying Carlton than the other way around!!!

    I dont mind Collingwood I have a great deal of respect for them. More than I can say for the Blues they are scum of the highest order!!!

    We were a rabble last night, so I think you have a point.

    It was beyond bad, it was lack of effort,lack of skill, lack of knowledge.

    Welcome to the world where Carlton dominate.

    Hope the rest of you guys like it.


    I will be an Essendon supporter next week.

    Go the Dons!!!

    Carlton were as good last night as collinwood were pathetic. You guys came
    Ready to rumble while we came ready to fumble. Your mob is
    At the height of its powers in round 3 of verg, very long season.
    You guys cannot play any better than u did, on last nights performance
    Your team can't do much more. But let face reality here, collingwood is
    Playing rubbish football, our team looks confused, players aren't putting
    In the required effort and I could go on, but if collingwood played 5% better,
    Keeping in my mind we have about 30% improvement left in is if we get
    Our shit together, u guys wouldn't have won. Carlton is a good team playing
    Very good footy ATM. Collingwood is an exception team playing poor footy.
    At the conclusion of the home and away Carlton will finish high enough to challenge but the real contenders like the pies, cats, hawks and dockers will
    The mortein that keeps ur 'mosquito fleet' at bay. But keep thinking last night
    Was more about ur teams ability the our teams lack Of effort. U guys have
    Probably inadvertantly given collingwood the medicine it requires to get back to
    It's 2010 heights.

    Before this week, Carlton HAD to beat a top 4 team to be considered a top team, and now that we beat collingwood it doesn't count unless we beat Geelong, West Coast or Hawthorn. Get off it mate!

    Carlton are the real deal.

    They have a ruck division.

    Geelong and Hawthorn have not.

    It's still rather a hollow victory, despite how well Blues played.

    Reid and Ball out of the game early- hurt the ability to rotate and guys like Maxwell and Wellingham who would have had managed loads all of a sudden were cut down too. Not to mention Carlton having an extra 2 days on the Pies which only then enhanced the problem when we went 2 down on top of some key players who weren't out there from the beginning.

    Our form is not great though and we have some issues there to sort out internally.

    I still expect us to be 9-3 or 8-4 by the mid season break and hopefully by then we will have everyone up and available and ready to go because at the moment we seem to be lacking the fit soldiers.
