    Is this real life?

    Goddard's favourite finals moment on the AFL website is the 99 prelim

    The fact tgat he was a Blues fan before being drafted doesn't cut it for me. We obviously haven't permeated his soul yet... delisting is too good for him... I suggest Cercei's walk of shame!

    I prefer the reality where Carlton lose access to a generational talent and lifelong blues fan because they cheated the cap

    Carlton fans still claim they are feeling the effects of the salary cap penalties they copped over a decade ago when you compare to what Essendon got seems like a wet lettuce slap.

    After 100 ess games he should know us...he should be one of us!

    I can't have this. Couldn't the 95 flag have been his moment? ANY OTHER Carlton moment that does not hurt us...

    Its like having Australia Day on the 26th when it hurts ppl.

    99 still hurts.

    Come on! He would have been 14 at the time, and a die hard blues supporter.

    I still have Justin Murphy throwing his arms in the air on the siren etched in my brain.

    That Finals Series was such a rollercoaster. I think I remember the 96 Finals series more vividly than any other (I only started following AFL in 1995).

    We lost two finals by 1 point.

    That's messed up.

    Every Carlton supporter I know and have met say that the 99 preliminary final is their best football moment.

    That's right. They prefer beating us in heartbreaking circumstances in a preliminary final, than win a flag.

    Explains everything about them really.

    99 felt worse than the saga.

    He hasn’t changed a bit.
