I was discussing that very issue with my alter ego this morning
It's when they start arguing with themselves that i get a bit concerned
It's surprising how many people read this stuff but don't post.I expect there are plenty of posters here who have more than one identity as well!
If you adopt a "play the post, not the poster" strategy, it probably shouldn't matter. But I still feel there's something quite right about that.
You wanted to pay 750k a year for leadership abilities?...you look at GC who picked up Barlow for that reason, half the money, is already in their best players every week(JLT series) and getting the footy 30 timesa game...thats what we needed.Mick gave his lovechild a retirement pension after Collingwood's medicos failed Daisy and ours passed him???....and now we are stuck with a player who cant kick 30m, cant run and who will get a game every weekdue to the large amount of money we are paying him because its too embarassing to have him play for the NB's...We never learn from our mistakes thats part of the reason we remain down the ladder....
Actually, that's suggested a possible new thread - "Get to know my alter ego" - what do you think? Some people may even have more than one!
Call it "The United States of Tara Thread"
Agree. I heard Lyon say something on SEN this morning about GWS that I never considered or put into context. He was talking about how they are flag favorites and to put that into context, he said "think about the best kid or two on your list. Well GWS have 30 of them".
And there's probably another 20-30 exGWS players on other club's lists. SOS nailed the strategy for them in a way that GC missed. They should both be pushing for the GF this year but GC got pretty much everything wrong. Draft/trade strategy, culture, facilities, injury management, salary cap management, coach appointments... it's been an epic stuff up which only looks all the worse for GWS success.Re. expectations for 2017 the Age experts predict that Carlton will push for 7-8 wins this year. I'd sign up for that right now. Our disposal right across the JLT series was wooden spoon stuff. Maybe that will clean up as we come into the season proper but that is the challenge at this point. We were miles off even a basic level of decision making / disposal accuracy.
Like the positivity Flyboy, you always seem to view the glass half full.I remember going to the infamous Essendon "what are those blokes on" match in 2012... it was a sunny day and I thought we were a contender about to smash our hated enemy... nothing has quite been the same since. Elimination final win over Richmond was a little ray of sunshine. But the optimism has been beaten out of me in that time.
That was when (name escapes me - Lonergan?) pile drove Carrots into the turf early in Q1.Carrots was in career best form and arguably never returned to that level.
