Vossy seems like such a great guy. Very excited he’s our head coach.
One thing he does have is that he's not old enough to have lost touch with what it is to be a player, he can "fit" in as one of the boys if need be, but is also old enough to be respected as a coach. His benefit compared to that of Teague is that he was a captain (+premiership player) so he automatically gets that respect and is revered for his footy accomplishments (don't see Walshy having a signed jumper of Teague on his wall).

I think the whole Brisbane thing and being demoted for the last few years as an assistant may have been the best thing in allowing him to complete his training in getting to be the best senior coach he can now be.

Pretty sure this was widely said about at least our last two coaches.
You are right that it was said about Teague.

Wasn’t Bolton more signed as someone who was going to be given a couple of years with a young list and go from there? I don’t remember him as the long-term coach, more that he was viewed as an interim coach at the beginning. I could be wrong.

Same shizen, different pre-season. Looking forward to us limping home in 2022 in moderate disarray to an impotent 13th place finish.

I refuse to enter next season in a positive frame of mind. I'm psychologically underpromising myself in the hope the Mighty Blues will over-deliver.

Not sure whether we should be over promising under delivery or under promising over delivery.

I think most Carlton fans feel that way to a degree at the moment. Until we see success in the back of my mind I'll always be waiting for us to balls it up.

I get excited pre-season every year.
Then the boys disappoint me every ******* year.
Then I pledge I will never fall into the same trap.
But then I get excited next pre-season anyway.

This has to stop, I can't take it any more more!!!
Fool me 20 times, shame on you. Fool me 21 times, shame on me.
Finally this year, I am holding back. Tempered expectations.
























But seriously. New CEO. New president. New coach. Cerra. Hewitt. Another year into our kids. No gifting games to vets. How ******* exciting is that?!?!?!?!?! C'mon boys, let's make 2022 OURS!!!!
