Hi di ho good feralrinos.

I remember years ago, there was a column in Inside Football where a feral fan and a positive fan would trade opinions about team's performances.

It got me thinking about our rules about player abuse and persistent negative agendas and how we moderate them to keep discussions enjoyable for the majority.

My solution is to have a dedicated feral fan thread where Carlton supporters can post with spur of the moment passion and frustration, without the moderation and without the arguments and calling out that dominates our match threads and so forth.

I'm not saying that anybody that posts in here is a feral fan, but might just had trouble containing themselves in the heat of the moment. In saying that, since this thread exists, there is no excuse to drag down the tone of the match threads any longer.

Win/Win for everyone and an opportunity to not alienate those who get a bit carried away (in the minds of some) on occasion.

Mods are not excluded from this. Can see Chism giving it a workout if things go pear-shaped this season.

For everyone else, if you don't like reading the content in here ... don't come in here. It's like the opposition banter thread for all intents and purposes.

Umpiring is disgraceful, always has been and always will be; human umpires should be replaced by electronic equivalents,
Journalists need to have their current privilege watered down further so they smell accountability at their heels.
We need a new CEO at the end of the year; regardless of how many memberships he sells before then.

Had he still been at Richmond, I wonder what our supposed ethics directed CEO would have made of the Richmond recruiter who recruited herself recently. Am gonna guess that he wouldn't have a single objection. I dun think he really has an unhealthy preoccupation with COI. He's a gun membership salesman, I hope he stays with us in that capacity when his current role expires.

Probably best to take this tread down.

We all know that this thread will end up being dedicated to a handful of players.

Not something that we should encourage.

Whilst not 'feral', my opinion is the AFLW is the worst 'elite' labelled female sport in the world.
I love watching the W- League.. the skills are genuinely elite and the girls play with a high level of physicality..
I have coached Women's cricket at a district level and really enjoy watching the skills, of which some are sublime..
I have watched and enjoyed WNBL when my wife played..
My daughter has played state level netball and again, the skills were magnificent.

I have no idea how the AFL added 4 more sides, it has diluted the talent pool dramatically. I would say there would be no more than 15-20 elite players in this competition.

My niece is on Fremantle's list this season and jokes that 'she can't kick for sh*t'.. Granted, she has only been playing the game 2 seasons having come from another sport.

Tipping this thread will be full of JSOS, SPS, LOB and Dow clutter by round 5. I’m steering clear. Go Blues.

I’m still worried about Polson. I think this year is a make or release year for the lad. I’m guessing his best bet may be as a tagger in the Ed mould; even EC took a while to get his disposal and poise to AFL standard. Fingers crossed.
