    It's Geelong's fault they were the only Vic team who didn't chase the cash and flog off their home ground to play at MCG/Docklands/Waverly

    That Freo is a failure off field because of our lack of on field success. We are actually one of the best run teams financially, get some of the lowest handouts from the league, have the most expensive training complex in the comp, make a profit every year without pokies.

    That we've supposedly been rebuilding since 1995. This usually goes hand in hand with more garbage like "you won't sniff the finals for another 30 years".

    I don't mind arguing with fans about Carlton and understand where many come from when they question our club going forward.

    But dickheads stating we've been rebuilding since 1995 are not even worth arguing with. We made a grand final in 1999, played finals for the last time with that group in 2001 and then fell to the bottom of the ladder. We then spent several years being a disgrace which landed us with Murphy, Kreuzer and Gibbs before Judd then decided to join. We then played finals from 2009-2011 and with our age profile it was expected that we'd continue to improve. Instead we drafted terribly, sacked a coach and went through 2012-2014 in no man's land pretty much except for the Richmond finals win. We commenced a rebuild after the 2015 season after the club finally accepted the position we were in, sacking Malthouse, moving on several others and bringing in SOS.

    The notion that you are rebuilding if you don't win a flag has to be one of the dumbest footy sayings ever. This is our second rebuild in my lifetime. The first one was with Judd etc and it came up short.

    Also get pretty annoyed when opposition fans tell us to clean out our footy department, CEO etc despite the fact we've recently done that.

    That our players were tied naked to a tree and had their sacks roasted with Bunsen burners

    That we are arrogant posters who drink our own bath water. You will all regret saying shit like this after we win the next ten flags.

    That we are too old and too slow and have no youth and get too many free's and an easy draw and continue to sell the farm just to pick up elite players.

    That our 2016 flag was a fluke.

    We had the toughest finals run and played the best teams including 2 interstate, with an injury riddled list.

    The bye did help though. No denying that.

    That 2006 was tainted

    Dead set imagine how good our players would have been if they didn’t party all night and do drugs

    Judd would have stayed ...Judd Kerr cousins for another three or four years

    Drugs like ketamine..coke..meth..,ecstasy are not performance enhancing...why is it illegal to drive a car with them ...derrrr

    Mike Sheehan you’re a fool

    That we consistently overachieve.

    Be nice if more than just the odd person was capable of acknowledging that it was actually them that got their assessment of us all wrong.

    That we are a young team and as fans we should be ok with the odd thrashing.

    We aren't that young.

    Our complete unpredictability. Years we are predicted to surge up the ladder, we tumble, the years we aren't predicted to be nowhere near it, we win flags.

    Apparently Eddie is the only biased commentator going around. Yet he doesn't even do pies games.

    Then you have good old Lingy having a toss on the boundary line over Geelong when they play and trying to touch Dangers bum when he goes near him to collect the ball

    Always been baffled by that assertion - similar thing came up when Watson got stripped of his Brownlow, specifically RE: Cousins. To win a Brownlow while off your head is an unbelievable achievement, I'd suggest giving him a second medal, although he probably doesn't need it :p

    I can't recall anybody saying anything annoying about us. Been pretty much universal love from my understanding.

    So many to choose from, but being “over the cap” in 1995 is particularly slanderous.
