    Neither has Fisher. The point is that he had as good a run as Fisher did. You were wrong to claim he hadn’t.

    ... & in news relating to this thread, Gibbs has selected the #6 guernsey as was a huge fan of Modra & same as his good mate Simpson.

    I'm over arguing with you seeing as you keep shifting the goalposts and honing in on red herrings and pointless semantics to protect your precious crows:thumbsu:

    Actual Tyson and Andrew were fine. Their wives had a fight and therefore they had a falling out on the back of it.
    Still managed to play the most games together of any duo in AFL history.

    Shifting the goal posts?
    They arent moving just because you can only kick out on the full.

    Riley Knight is a soft and weak player remember. And Zac Fisher is a tank and a star and would've played a full season for every finals side this year. :rolleyes:

    Docherty knee likely means Crows pick up close to pick 20 next year.

    Its a shit way of it happening, but it has certainly increased the chances of us getting a better pick.

    Hope Sam's rehab goes well and he gets back to full capacity. Was really starting to show consistent elite performances.

    Losing Docherty is certainly a big loss for Carlton, but you could say the same about Brodie Smith for the Crows.

    One player missing the season will not cause a team to come last.

    Gotta love the opportunistic posting of some

    Think we're likely to finish about 10th-13th, so about 24-27 IMO

    Really terrible news about Docherty, probably the best half back flanker at the moment.

    Could have done with this guy this year, Docherty going down is huge in Carlton’s ladder position. Attention goes to next in line and Carlton probably lose a lot of run and 15 to 20 possessions out of the back half.

    It’s not just his run and possessions, but his leadership down back. He’s a real general down there. Gonna be sorely missed. Last thing we needed after losing Gibbs’ leadership abilities too. One of the reasons Carlton were so keen on hanging on to Gibbs last year in lieu of a compelling offer.

    Luckily you still have Simpson down there, he is going to have to be the general down there this year. Problem is that the player that would usually try to keep Docherty quiet will now roll over to Simpson .

    Absolutely, and Smith is almost as important to us.
    But the trade was made with that knowledge already in hand, this is new information.

    Also I think Adelaide can cover a lot easier than Carlton.

    I guess Carlton fans will be very happy Simpson decided to go around again (guessing he would be close to retirement)

    Thank goodness for Simmo. Hopefully his durability and form continues at least another year.

    Carlton finishing 10th-13th?

    Surely you jest.

    And yes, losing one player can severely damage a teams ladder position.

    As to the poster who suggested it was poor form to raise this information, it's not gloating, it's not opportunistic. It's considering new information in the context of a trade deal.

    Anyway, bad luck for the Blues. Good news for the Crows.

    He has been amazing, the fact that he's kept his form and fitness for so long.
    Esp given his lack of physical size and the fact that he's played a position that requires getting smashed often.

    I still laugh at a poster that said he was too small to make it in his first season. He will rack up 300 this year and is as brave as they come.

    Wouldn't believe he had zero disposals in his first 3 games.

    I could see how you would think he was too small. You could still make that argument about him!

    Brave is right. Its fine to be brave when you're a big guy, but when you're slender even in your what 13th year in the game and you go back with the flight every time, then that's real bravery (well footy's version of it).

    Really zero in his first 3 games? Many guys wouldn't come back from that.

    Yeah however the old Gibba helped us snaffle Kennedy and and should land a ripper palyer at pick 10, too, looking ok.
    Gibbs will always be loved at Princes Park, gave us his best years 200+ games alawys remain a great Blue Bagger.
