And won lots of spoons and ruined plenty of careers since.
Carlton fans stuck reflecting on old VFL paper bag glory.

AFL era they stand alone as the worst performed club.

Despite that they come alive in November / December when they have "won" another off season, and next year will be their year.

Thread is about next season, you Collingwood nuffies having trouble understanding that, at the moment we are both undefeated.

Yes it was 2.11 in those three quarters and yet the game was decided by a 1pt margin. Anything but comfortable. Also proves how detrimental our inaccuracy was to our chances in that game, arguably more so then anything Collingwood did on the day.
Pretty sure winning would trump everything you said but I could be wrong

"Goddess"
but what is there to argue with?

That flags aren't the aim of every Club?
That winning flags isn't the ultimate measure?

what exactly are you disagreeing with here?

hmmm


Collingwood have lost over 25 GF - ie they have come 'second' more than any other Club and in doing that Collingwood ( despite its record of cheating in teh VFL era ( lets be honest here eh?) have managed to only win 2 flags in 64 years V Carlton's 8 in the same timeline...

give it up fella your distorted cherry picked to avoid the truth narrative is only working on fellow Collingwood one eyes - no one else .



Talk about living rent free JaB.

Winning 50 years ago in the VFL, when you just got out the cheque book and paper bags, is more important then AFL performance according to our learned Bagger friends
I have a soft spot for bagger because I think he actually believes the things he writes

Coming from a supporter that has won 1 flag in 30 years, same as us

How funny, thinking you are relevant and or some powerhouse of the competition

Sounds like another pathetic excuse.

No, it was nothing about Collingwood rising to the occasion when it mattered most, and making sure they were ahead when it counted.
Lol it was making the point that the game was far from comfortable - or were you just banking on us kicking inaccurately. Didn't know Nostradamus was an assistant at the Pies

Maybe read the post I was replying to that said it was a comfortable game for the Pies. Didn't know there was a such a thing as a comfortable 1pt win. Pies must be some sort of force if they are having those

Absolutely we have been substandard in the 20 -30 years, but some of your supporters carrying on like you are some powerhouse over that period is truly delusional
I think most of us realise we’ve had opportunities but ****ed them most of the time as usual

I'm just repeating one of the myriad of excuses as to why Carlton lost the round 23 game.

Meanwhile, Collingwood supporters don't need excuses for that game. Guess why?
You seem to have some trouble understanding what an excuse is. Saying that three of our five starting mids were out against the Pies is a FACT. So once again not one "fifth best mid" as you keep repeating. An EXCUSE would be saying that is the reason we lost the game - when it was a clearly a close game (far from comfortable for either team) and IMO we should have won it even without those players playing given the chances we generated.

Sorry, I forgot.

Carlton are the only team in the competition who suffer injuries.

Find me the post where I or anyone here said that? I was pointing out how you saying "fifth best mid" was incorrect and that there were multiple outs which WERE NOT an excuse for the loss. Every team cops injuries and noting that it happens does not mean they are being used as an excuse. Despite the players we had out we still generated more than enough chances to win the game and just didn't convert them.
