    We have gay players who are discriminated against by the current law. Do you think it is unreasonable for Carlton to advocate for a discriminatory law to be changed?

    Just curious, is there a reason you always write "Carlton football club" in full?

    .....and I'll give you this for free.

    For all the bollocks of Inside 50's, turnovers, rebound attacks and Skippy's sperm count, only one thing counts at the end.

    Because that is the name of our great club. You may also have noticed that I do the opposite for other teams e.g. the Tiggies, Pussies, Dopers, Weagles.

    What a unique talent Fev is / was. A winner of the GF half time sprint and the Fox Footy Longest Kick.
    Did alright as a full forward but couldn't keep his sh*t together.
    Hope things are going well for him now.

    Kinda funny story

    One of my best friends works at Nike HQ in Melbourne. Today she grabbed me a couple of the new Golden State Nike NBA jerseys

    Tonight on IG, Kouta posts a pic of his family and a current player at Nike so I send it to my friend ... "looks like this was taken at our work! "

    She replies "yeah I saw them ! Who are they ? The young guy on the left wanted your jersey, but it was the last one so I managed to grab it from him !"

    said young guy, was Patty Cripps

    Hopefully he decided to grab one of the spare Simmons jerseys instead.

    That's the spirit. Make him fight for everything he wants.

    Feed the beast on anger and disappointment, just don't get between him and a clearance next season.

    Do people potting the club/Trigg for our SSM statement have an alternative??

    I thought it was refreshing, great not to be preached to and pressured into doing what all the media are telling us to do.

    It's a personal matter, personal opinion, personal feeling. It's no one else's business.



    *and of course I'll likely be the board bigot now, without anyone having any idea of my thoughts on it. That's how this works.

    **sorry Aphrodite it was just mentioned in the Bluemour file a few times so I fired away. My bad :thumbsu:

    Re SSM, I don't think you're a bigot, but the idea is that the choice for a same sex marriage couple to get married, should belong to the same sex couple, not every other Tom, Dick and ******* Harry. Hence why this stupid 'survey' that's designed to divide warrants individuals / groups taking a stand.
