    Sam Murray

    ASADA must be in dire need of funding as it's laboratory is seemingly being run by one person in white coat who also has to answer the phones. Honestly, if an athlete returns a positive result how hard is it to get the secondary sample out of storage and load it into what I assume is a machine...

    Player Watch James Aish

    You feel Aish will probably have to elevate himself to the next level in 2019 if he is to cement a place within the 22. Question is though how much improvement is still left? He'll be one of the more interesting player stories to keep track of this season.

    Degoey injured at Training

    de Goey's injury is only minor when it proves to be so would be my advice.

    Analysis AFLX

    Didn't think it could be possible but I have less interest in this competition than AFLW. Well done AFL.

    Banter Banter thread Part 2 - Opposition fans welcome

    How a lightning strike on the property of Robert Walls (what's the odds of it being a known person let alone a Carlton person was the point of my post) has anything to do with floods in Townsville or fires in Tasmania I do not know. Anyway what next for Carlton this preseason? A massive sink...

    Toast Carlton worst season in 122 years: Shiel would rather drive with Jimmy Buckley than fly with SOS

    Bloody Carlton can't take a trick this preseason. https://www.theage.com.au/national/victoria/afl-great-robert-walls-at-centre-of-out-of-control-bushfire-20190203-p50vej.html Here's hoping this is a sign from the Football Gods that our luck is about to change for the better.

    Toast Carlton worst season in 122 years: Shiel would rather drive with Jimmy Buckley than fly with SOS

    Names have been changed and actors used to protect the identities of those involved but sources tell me this is an accurate reflection of the Bugg exit interview.

    Conversations with a killer. The Ted Bundy tapes. While most people with an interest in true crime would be familiar already with the crimes of the infamous serial killer Ted Bundy this 4 part series is excellent because of it's extensive use of archival news footage and present day interviews...

    Training Apples' Training Threads 2018/19

    They might do well to start training earlier than usual tomorrow. As it is the overnight low for Melbourne will only be 29.:eek:

    Player Watch Welcome to Collingwood Isaac Quaynor

    It was pretty obvious that the club loved what they saw in Isaac when he trained with the club last preseason going by some of the comments in the media at the time. Whether that be because of his attitude towards training, performance against senior listed players in drills or how Hine saw him...

    Pre-Season Training 2018-19

    I thought Crisp had a bad back prior to the Christmas break? Like Bucks that kind of horseplay had me worried also.

    Pre-Season Training 2018-19

    Watching video footage of this preseason and to my eye at least Darcy has lost the final remnants of boyhood in his appearance and now resembles a young man. Whether that equates to better luck with injury and a more intense focus on his football only time will tell but I think the growing...
