    Definitively the funniest post of the thread. Thank you.

    I know the mentality down at Princes Park, you guys think because the Tigers can do it, you guys can do it. #soslogic

    Your team will not even get into the 8 within 2 years let alone be a powerhouse. Let that sink in for a while.

    Thats also not taking into consideration, injuries,suspensions,draw,player movement etc etc. You need to do a lot of things right to be a powerhouse.

    Seriously you guys are conservatively 5+ years away of doing anything.

    I never said they did.

    I actually have put an argument in in that the Tigers imo had a better H&A season than us.

    I've just realised how SOS can keep doing what he's doing - selling his story to gullible dickhead like you is a walk in the park.

    Along with that has to keep telling selectors his son is better than he is to keep him in team.

    Wouldn't it be good if Carlton had a board on Bigfooty? Someone should get Chief onto this...

    I was agreeing with you. This idea that Carlton can "do a Tigers" is based in a dream world where Richmond's build is ignored.

    Holy shit, you're delusional.

    We are a grand finalist and minor premiers. Our players that "won't improve " are already A+ talent!

    Meanwhile, you have a bunch of spuds you think will become C- players?! So what!

    You're miles off. Every shit team can do a list and say how hopeful they are they'll improve.

    The difference is we're already there.

    Didn't the Tigers win 15 games two of the last three years?

    Carlton needs to do a few years of actually winning before they'll get near actually contending.

    No, it won't.

    Personally, I think our 1st/2nd/3rd for Gibbs and your third.

    Three, maybe four things that are now different to last year.

    1. Gibbs is one year older, and one year nearer the end of his contract.

    2. Carlton may be keener for the AFC picks, to use in other trades.

    3. Both sides may have reflected on and learnt from last year's impasse.

    4. Does Gibbs still want to move to AFC? If so, he and or his manager need to make the case to the CFC.

    I didn't think a deal would get done last year, much more likely this year IMHO.

    You have to have one decent player to be a powerhouse. Lol

    +1

    You cant help but love that blind madness of faith by the Blues supporters, Im worried about the Crows being in the top 4 next year and that Blues supporter thinks the Blues will be a powerhouse. :huh:

    Seriously you forgot a few Players Doedee (22), Jarman (21), Himmelberg (21) would even put names Like Pokohle (21) Signorolla (21)

    And you name a few players who will struggle to get games in 2018 in Otten, MacKay, and possibly Douglas.

    Crows have 9 A graders in that starting 18
    I put up. I also showed how that number will likely be around 10 in 2019.

    There is enough evidence to suggest that by 2019, 14 of that Carlton team will be A graders
