In the 70’s & 80’s Carlton just went to SA & WA and signed up whoever they wanted. 

A mate of mine was in charge of WA for years. Money was no obstacle

they stole Wayne Johnstone from under our nose

Yes, the paper bag days they were called, because they used to throw money at young guys and get them on their list.

This is a story some one told me about the bummers, this person told me that his brother work for ess at the time, and said that sheedy and co went to lloyd parents house when he was 16 years of age; and told them they wanted him to be at the bummers. They said they would start paying him straight away if they agreed, but to keep hush,hush; and well we know the rest.

I was gobbed smacked, i said your pulling my leg, he looked me in the eye and said no i'm not, this guy was a demon supporter who owned a shop i used to go to back in the day.

Is it?

I dispute that. Both lists are horrible. The Win/Loss ratio tells us

Carlscum as a club, do not understand rules, they haven’t for 55 years. They have no idea about grooming talent. 

Carlscum like to buy Champions and now they can’t. Bolton should run, whilst he can

Losing Bryce Gibbs finished them off

 

Let's put things in perspective.

In 60 games under Bolton Carlton have had 12 x 60+ point losses.  

Melbourne had 11 x 60+ point losses in 2013 alone.

And their 60% is better than our 2013 percentage of 54.

They've also had far more injuries than we had in 2013.

Their plight is certainly not as bad as the Dees of 2013.

Makes you wonder if they're still feeling the effects from the Chris Judd trade.

Traded him in to bring them a premiership, but yet his groins were absolute shot. Traded out Josh Kennedy who is one of the genuine star forwards of the comp.

I guess giving away players like Betts, Waite, Garlett, Jacobs, Robinson doesnt help either..

It certainly seems like an odd strategy doesn't it, getting rid of every player that's ever kicked a goal for the club. Is it any wonder they're now unable to put points on the board.

Long may Carlscum delude themselves into thinking that SOS is the Messiah, and not as is more widely accepted an appeal for help when in dire straits.  

Let him lead them down deeper into the paths of darkness and doom..

It will take Carlscum years to climb out of this

Most of their senior players are nearing retirement, and their Fwd line is almost dysfunctional. 

I enjoy seeing them suffer, and i don’t think they have hit the bottom yet. 

Young Curnow and Cripps are the only class they have. Kruezer is almost done. Most of their list can only apply pressure for about 40 minutes, and none of it is attacking. We were similiar. 

Brisbane are doing it right. Carlscum still don’t understand drafting, it’s against their nature.

Yes i read that. Most depressing

But if the 2013 MFC side played Carlscum 2018 there would be little in it

Both appalling teams coached by Rookies

I saw that interview. I thought that Silvagni was very unimpressive.

Not too enthused by the Coach, for what it's worth. They will drop about 600 games in experience if Murphy and Simo finish, which will need to be replaced somehow.

He's a development coach, to develop young players, whilst that club manages the list (drafting).

Now;  what chance that Carlton entered into an agreement with the Crows last end of season, involving the Gibbs deal,  the 2018 national draft and Lukosius.

 

Will the Crows trade picks to Carlton, for Pick 1 of the 2018 NAB draft ?

We have a long way to go still as a club, but after years at the very bottom, it's great to grab a bucket of popcorn and watch Carlton implode. Everyone is starting to get very protective of their patch and there are attacks coming left, right and centre. Great to see.
