Great post....I apologise on their behalf.

Watching the 3rd quarter again.
Put our best 2 mids on the bench for 10 minutes, it's U/19s stuff.
Can't coach for that.
It wasn't the only thing that didn't add up.
Very painful mate.
we were rubbish but i'm not sure we'll lose by as much for the rest of the season.
we looked much better when trying to play on instead of kick mark. we get thrashed either way but at least playing on we created some pressure on their defence and could score.
our goal-kicking is a problem we've had for nigh on a decade, and you wonder whether anyone has bothered to do anything about it save for sav teaching levi. think he should spend some time teaching other players.
maybe he can teach them to execute 30 metre passes while he's at it.
pickett very flaky, is probably the time to work on his game in the vfl. great to see c curnow get amongst it.
phillips just not match fit. here's hoping kreuzer rested up for what might be a more winnable game against sydney, if the ladder is anything to go by.
weitering on a hiding to nothing last night. ball barely past the centre and when it did come in it came in terribly.
He was terrific last year.
This year he has played like he has got ahead of himself and thinks something less than maximum effort will get him through.
It clearly won't. Hope he realises it quick.
This is pretty much the team we brought in for the JLT match against stkilda, remember that people. It's only a testament to the first and second year player's development.
I'll wake up in the morning, the sun will rise, and mighty Carlton will always be there.
Let it loose............man!
You're watching what?
I can't even think about it...
Preach it Stiffmeister (if you don't mind me calling you that), and sorry once more if my previous post was out of line. There were many I could've attacked but yours was unlucky enough to catch me at the peak of my anger.
As a 21 year old supporter, born just a few months before our last premiership my earliest memories of supporting Carlton begin with the stench of the Pagan era. Other than some brief finals cameos I've essentially supported a bottom four club for the majority of my life. That's why I'm keen to give this new generation as much support as they need, because I want to see the greatness of Carlton with my own eyes and not have stories recited to me from those of previous generations.
Watch it as a player.
In 3 years..........give these kids that.
Na I read it differently.
I've had a similar experience in the past and I don't think it's necessary when you don't know someone.
To a mate watching the footy over a few beers....that's a clip.
How come you don't get whacked CT?
2 six day breaks in a row, 5 teenagers, 2 players rested for soreness as well as Cripps wearing a mattress around his ribs.. we were never going to run this one out for 4 quarters. It actually amazes me that so many people were writing us off as we had 2 six day breaks in a row, such is the obvious negative impact, yet the AFL in all their wisdom give us 2 six day weeks on the way to AO! Only side this year to have back to back 6 day rest as far as I know, and they give it to us on an away game.
It's not often i find relief watching the commercials.
A few kids stood up tonight under trying conditions Charlie,SOS,Williamson,and Fisher all looked like they belong out there and SPS will be a very special player once fit. But this is where our match committee have a hard job to get the right mix of kids/senior players to maybe jag the odd win and also get them experience.
The thing with Effort is it's a mindset driven by determination and in that 3rd qtr we were absolutely putrid. Maybe they were badly coached/badly structured?
I don't know?
But it seemed the players did not know what to do/where they were playing or who they were playing on.
Lots of Floggard type finger pointing from players was going on thus leading to shit mindset and confidence in each other.
All you can ask for is players to have a crack and in the 3rd they definitely looked like they were not cracking in hard.
But as you say it really is about the future and getting the kids ready over the next 2-3 years and hope with confidence their effort improves.
And make it a Friday night match so everyone can watch our failure.
If the worst thing that happens to you is your team gets belted some weekends you're doing pretty well for yourself.
All good RB.
Thought you may have been a youngster.
I want the exact same thing and I want it for all Blue Bloods.
My kids are 16 and 18 and have had none of the highs I lived through...football ones as well!
HARKER did you have anything to do with Docherty going into the middle?
I think Pickett has what it takes to make it at the level and with a couple of years under Bolton I think he will be a genuine gun small forward, my mate thinks I'm delusional..
I think he went at pick 3 for a reason. He showed plenty of glimpses tonight if you could be bothered looking.
Oh they got 3 years.
Player v fan, different perspective. Like it.
You will be laughing in his face when he kicks his first bag it will come. Kid is a jet he's just not fit yet and needs to finish better this will come with experience and pre seasons.
