    Do they even need him? Serong and Brayshaw are already projecting to be elite (Brayshaw is very close), Fyfe is still there and Mundy going around again... Neale is undoubtedly a gun but I don't think he adds something they don't already have in spades. Will be interesting for sure. I was...

    Piggy Neale reportedly wanting to escape the Den and return for some late career Wharfie time... does this make us more or less likely to pick him?

    Round AFL Finals Series

    I think the problem is development. I don’t know if you can get this many first round picks outright wrong - there’s been some absolute duds like Matthew Watson, Kane Lucas, Blaine Boekhorst… you know as I’m writing this maybe it is possible to just be this sh*t at drafting :$ But I think in...

    Round AFL Finals Series

    We’ve been so sh*t that we had practice from the year before. Bryce Gibbs Cup against the Bombers in 2006… the only saving grace from all of that is that the Bombers wasted pick 2 on Scott Gumbleton of all campaigners. I have no doubt we’d have picked him as well - our drafting has been diabolical for...

    Yeah it's similar for me - although I guess the adjustment to the retort is "how many have you actually seen". Especially as a teenager when you'd always fall back on the "yeah well we have 16 flags" when people would remind you how sh*t we've been. The same thing happens with EPL banter among...

    Round AFL Finals Series

    I don’t know if it counts when I wasn’t even a year old and don’t remember it at all though. My best memories are all somewhat linked with Essendon funnily enough - 99 PF which I vaguely remember, that comeback from 48 points down in 07, 11 EF smashing and of course you guys gifting us a final...

    Lads. I was born in 1994 and I support CARLTON FFS. 15 flags prior to when I was born. One flag when I was in nappies. 0 spoons prior to when I was born. FIVE of those motherf***ers since Stories of the likes of John Nicholls in the ruck, Sticks Kernahan at CHF and Greg Williams in the guts...

    Trade Requested Adam Cerra [requests trade to Victoria]

    I would be agreeable to the SPS version of that trade. I think Dow is currently worth more to us than he would be in a trade, especially given he just started to show some signs of looking more comfortable at the level. Both players are victims of terrible player development down at Princes...

    Trade Requested Adam Cerra [requests trade to Victoria]

    I wasn’t addressing the prospect of 2 firsts. The poster I quoted said the deal would be 2 firsts PLUS a player for Cerra, which is flagrantly ridiculous. Even if Carlton make the 8 next year - I think it’s more than reasonable to suggest it would be the bottom half of the 8 which would have...

    Trade Requested Adam Cerra [requests trade to Victoria]

    Impressive that in a thread full of bullshit this is the most ridiculous suggestion there is. 2 firsts, one of them a guarantee to be top 10 and and the other likely very close, AND a player?? Have we gone back to 2007 and we’re trading for Chris Judd again? This is up there with Blues fans...
