    Oh how did I miss this.

    Since I can't bloody sleep and have to get up in an hour I've given up, so here goes.

    There seems to be some differing opinions of Charlie, one is despite his lack of offensive contribution and shitful use of the ball and finishing, his defensive pressure made up for it and he would turn it on in the finals.

    As it turned out, he thankfully turned it on in the prelim and was an offensive weapon. It's interesting though that we are supposed to give him an apology based on him doing what we were critical of him not doing.

    His game isn't being lauded for his defensive pressure but his goal scoring, funny that.

    I called for him to be dropped in the later half of the year because his form deserved it. Others said he we was still performing, but at that stage he was performing a role no better than Petrenko.

    As we approached the finals, it was too late to make a change. He was a clanger king against GWS but that didn't matter according to some, he still played well. Against Geelong he was a gun.

    I hope like hell he reproduces his Geelong game in the GF and not the GWS because that will mean he will be turning the ball over to Richmond and with their speedy forwards could catch our defenders out of position.

    Charles had a reasonably good 1st half of thr season offensively apart from a couple of games.

    It's not until he was injured that his offensive game dropped off, apart from 2 games.

    From the Collingwood game onwards his defensive game in terms of tackling picked up again.

    He had a form slump...... So did a bunch of players.

    Trading him off in other threads with the excuse "he won't be much of a loss" is fickle fan behaviour and plain poor judgement.

    Just as poor as those trading off Brad last year as he struggled to gain form after returning from injury.

    You would have dropped him. So you were wrong! Simple :)

    Not for the finals, go back and read my posts. He deserved to be dropped leading up to it but once we didn't he stayed for the finals.

    And that I was wrong, thankfully. I didnt think he would flick the switch.

    That doesn't change the belief that he was playing well when he clearly wasn't.

    Anyway GF day, let's hope I'm wrong again and he plays another blinder.

    Love him or hate him, Cameron was one of the main reason we got to where we are today. I hope he can continue with this trend and get another belter of a game! Whenever Betts and Cameron play well in tandem during a match, it brings out the best of Crows fans and other Crows players alike.

    I'm keen to see Cameron traded. He clearly wants to go home and we might actually be able to get something decent for him because he's under contract.
