The club was fined $50,000, and Williams was fined $25,000 and de-registered by the league for eleven weeks. Williams was in his first pre-season with Carlton at the time, and his debut for the club was delayed until Round 7 as a result of the deregistration.
    Thanks for sharing. I was unaware of this. Good to know before casting stones at other clubs.

    Allir Allir dominating the Cats tonight. Anyone who thinks he’s not an elite defender knows very little about football

    It’s been a great season but it’s a blight on Longmire that he couldn’t see what was staring him in the face.

    I don’t care about Hickey or Salary Cap, you don’t let elite footballers go because the coach mis utilised them, you find a way to keep them

    Maybe not a blight on Longmire, but someone in charge of list management. Maybe we can blame Harley.
    Otherwise Agree 100%

    To be fair the Cats were playing to his strengths in Q1, in Q2 he had one disposal and dropped a couple of easy marks inside D50

    You’ve just proven my point, he was comfortably in Ports best last night, yet you try and downplay his game to somehow justify the trade.

    I swear he could win the Norm Smith and people would still be on here posting rubbish about him

    My disappointment is that in recent years we rarely got AA performances from Aliir. I don’t understand where we went wrong.

    And I’m torn between wishing we could get him back and looking for signs of the sometimes error prone AA from the Swans.

    Geelong did a horrible job of making him accountable last night.

    Longmire played him in the ruck and forward line instead of his best position which was obvious to anyone with half a football brain

    Aliir was on Yokayi. I glad that he's happy of at PA and doing well, but it's going to take a long time for me to get over that we actually traded him.

    Seems there are people of RWO who will justify any trade the club makes - I distinctly remember an occasion many years ago where the Daniher trade was lauded as a good idea.
    I guess it's a loyalty thing for some.

    And on past coaches Lyon has walked out on applying for the Carlton role.

    I have no idea if he was the right fit, but lolz Carlton.
    'Delicious' is a fun word to say
