    Gee, it's a good time to be a Tiger fan.....last week, last night and tonight's game proved we are a long way off Richmond....and maybe some others. May as well use the rest this season to develop younger players (esp. with the injuries to KJ and Hanners) and consolidate our list, ie: play some deserving reserves and give them a reason to stay.....we'll probably still make the finals and you never know.....if not, se la vi.

    Just watched the Richmond game, wow, like last week they just swarm everywhere like ants, deserved flag favourites. Makes our game look antiquated.

    Crows are a shell of last years side, won't be making finals. Curtly Hampton was on the ground for the Crows, I didn't use the word play, he was unsighted so checked his stats, 83% TOG for two possies at 50% efficiency! Looks a certain delist. More clever trading by GWS, they got a second rounder for him!

    Never seen a team increase their speed and stamina so quickly as Richmond. Super quick and so confident. They used to be the king of turnovers, now very efficient.

    Hampton was terrible....terrible....looked like he didn't want to be there.

Who knows what the real reason's are (his fathers death has no doubt set the wheels in motion) but good luck to him and his family. No doubt a great player even if he was adorned in horrible colours of brown and gold.
    Correction.....his fathers 'ill health'......he's not dead yet! Phew! Apologies to the Rioli's for that mistake.

    Looks like Carlton's going to get another number one pick. Fair enough, all the ones they already have, don't seem to be helping them that much.

    Just came inside and flicked on the telly to see how the Lukocious Cup was going at the Gabba and to see Carlton's "green shoots".

    Well looks like a trio of cups for the Blues, adding a third to their Kruezer & Gibbs cups picked up a decade ago. The green shoots? well not much rain so they're all brown and withered.

    HT 55 to 18, Brisbane making it look like a training run!

    Carlton didn't "win" a wooden spoon until 2002. They're now going for spoon number 5! Lovely!

    They were a very arrogant club in 70s, 80s and 90s. Karma bus has parked outside Princes Park for a long time now.

    I agree totally! No sympathy from me. They should not have been allowed to retain the 1995 Cup given their blatant rorting of the salary cap to win it.

    Let's hope it's completely broken down and parts are no longer available. Will never forgive the arrogant cheats for waiting for us to die in the 90s so that they could move in on the Sydney market. May the club languish at the wrong end of the ladder for many years to come.

    Carlton are so bad at present. Richmond look almost unbeatable.
