Gutted that Shep has had to retire. One of the best small defenders in the league, AA in 2020, 219 games and still had 2-3 really good years left in him. But gotta put his health first.

Means we're weakened down back for next season, he will be hard to replace.

You know we played them again last year right? and the margin was 100 points closer. So no, I don't expect another smashing. Those types of games are bound to happen for teams that are rebuilding. As a Carlton supporter, you should know. You've experienced it for the past 15 years during your rebuild.

It’s just about finished mate. :p

Average age will total? Someone didn't do too well at stats.

Yeah, it’s a running gag about Geelong. Take away 4 or 5 players, are they really that old?

Never seen the abbreviation for 'How about you' before?

“How bout you”? I can’t say I have ever seen HBU.

So their total age would be 1000, not their average. Just looked funny.

Good fixture for Carlton, no excuses for us not to make the eight.

The official AFL twitter has ranked the difficulty of each clubs fixture and has ours as the competitions easiest and Melbourne’s the hardest (Bulldogs are 16th). It’s good to be sh*t for so long I suppose.

Inspired by a main board thread, going to post another possibly controversial/hot take here.

Tony Lockett is the greatest player in VFL/AFL history.

If not the greatest player in VFL/AFL history. He was scary as fu** in a different way.
