Notice Board (Visitors Enter Here) / Site Upkeep and Management
Hi Everyone,

I'm getting busier with my company and now don't have the time to give to the site that I once did. I'm getting requests from users for changes to the site that I simply don't have time to action.

With that said, I hope there's someone on the site that wants to take over the hosting and tech side to help alleviate my workload. I've been doing this for over 15 years I think, so it's time to hand the reins over to the next group to move the site forward.

Ideally the site would be migrated to a server you manage. The server the site is currently hosted on is on CentOS 7 which needs to be phased out in the near future and I'm in the midst of consolidating workloads.

There's also the issue of the domain, which I can transfer to your preferred registrar.


Robert Heatley Stand / Some Sobering Reading
Just so everyone is the same page and doesn’t try and gloss over and make excuses for the club. Here are our starts to the last 9 seasons:

2013 0-3
2014 0-4
2015 0-3
2016 0-4
2017 0-2
2018 0-7
2019 0-4
2020 0-2
2021 0-2*

Now tell me the likes of Murphy and his cohorts have been great servants of this club.

It’s time! It’s time to be rid of the likes of Simpson, Kreuzer, Murphy and anyone else associated during this bleak period. What are Simpson and Kreuzer still doing around the club anyway?

What sort of winning culture can they impart to anyone? Fark me, Simpson has the most losses in the history of the game attributed to a player and Kreuzer wouldn’t be far behind.

What’s wrong with this place?

Jesus wept...
Robert Heatley Stand / Prediction: The Loss of the Year Coming
I just wanted to make a pre-emptive prediction on how predictably bad this club has become...

We are due to play Adelaide before the season ends. This is guaranteed to be another level of shyte that this club will dish up to it's supporters by not only losing, but losing handsomely.

Only the Carlton Football Club can find new ways to embarass their supporters in even greater ways year in year out. It's like, you think that was bad? "Hold my beer..."

Robert Heatley Stand / Bryce Gibbs & Marc Murphy
Bryce Gibbs & Marc Murphy. I'm so over these guys.

Has there ever been a more over rated duo than these two? Jesus, talk about turn over kings and soft at the contest. I hope that Bolton trades both these clowns at seasons end so I at least don't have to waste my time watching their continued ineptitude representing this once great club.

I would prefer to watch an entire team of 18 year olds getting smashed week in week out, that show some heart than these two constantly turning it over and putting team mates under pressure. For two that are supposed to be skillful players, I'm yet to see any evidence of that. Marc Murphy's missed goal in the first sums him up at the club perfectly. When you need him or his cohort to do something to give the team some heart you can guarantee they'll f*ck it up.

Over the last couple of weeks there are numerous examples from both the to illustrate their sh*tness. Go watch the games again and do it critically and you'll see what I'm talking about. People giving either of these two votes in any game is beyond belief in my eyes. It's like you blokes are watching a different game to me or are living in an alternate world where lack of skill and softness is to be lauded. They are kings of killing momentum and sucking the life out of the side with their efforts and poor execution of basic footy skills. Although, Casboult and his goal kicking is right up there as well in this regard.

Look at Samo Petrevski-Seton, now that's someone with poise and doesn't panic even under extreme pressure. Hits a target 95% of the time and is in his 5th game. Then look at Gibbs and Murphy's constant turn overs and mis-kicks. I can't remember the last time either got the ball to spin correctly through the air using a drop punt. It's just embarrassing! Having said that, Docherty hasn't been much better.

You would expect Murphy as the captain of the club to show at least some grunt at the contest, but all he does is soft it up when he's there and allows opponents to run past him like he's standing still. Our back line is placed under so much pressure because these two effectively put on zero pressure at the source. They allow their direct opponents to simply stroll through the centre of the ground unimpeded. It sh*ts me no end when I see Murphy with his customary head wobble to make it look like he's putting in an effort. I don't see the head wobble when he has the ball on the outside running 1 minute later in preparation for another turn over.

Don't give me this bullsh*t that they're both spent from running covering for the kids, that's just plain crap. If anything, it's the other way around because the kids are constantly having to sprint back trying to make up for the inevitable turn over. All the while, those causing the turn over stroll back without a care in the world. It's like they're above all that and aren't required to put in the effort to run back and support.

They are the two of the most selfish players in the AFL with zero commitment to the cause and are only in it for themselves and what the club can do for them.

Notice Board (Visitors Enter Here) / Connectivity Issues
Hi Everyone,

Just a heads up to tell you that our host is experiencing a DDoS attack on their servers which is impacting on us. This means that we will experience the occasional inability to connect to CSC until they can work out away to mitigate the situation.

There is nothing we can do while this is going on, so I ask everyone to be patient.

Thanks for your understanding...

Notice Board (Visitors Enter Here) / Website Responsiveness
Hi Everyone,

I have been informed that an undersea cable connection has been cut. This is the cable between us and Japan where CSC is hosted. Immediate action was taken to re-route traffic through alternative means, but this has caused all websites to become less responsive than they would have been otherwise.

The site will return to normal as soon as they rectify the issue. Until then, you're just going to need to be patient.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Talk soon...
