As I said in the in game thread:

Someone please please take those pregame fireworks and ram it up each Carlton players arse!

Feel sorry for Daisy, but really, he and Judd should swap pay packets.

Oh well, on to next week. Against the cokers.

Tiggies wanted it more than us, and were prepared to work harder for it.

Judd aside, the rest should give their money back. Disgusting.

I thought Docherty and White were okay.....probably two guys I haven't really rated.

Was Murphy injured during the preseason? Looked well off the pace.
Ignorance is bliss.

Well the experts are right, we're a less than very ordinary club, with an ordinary list, poor on-field leaders (but hey they're fun on social media)... and coaches who are living entirely on reputation.

Oh, and, tribe... really... tribe! What a ridiculous and shallow attempt to bond us. Marketing only works when your product is worth promoting... ours, isn't.

I fear we have a CEO expert in corporate jargon but little else.

There was a time when the CFC meant something...

Jones came to the club as a VFL players and had 6 touches to remind us of that fact.

Jaksch came to the club with high expectations and had 5 touches and looked like he should be back in the TAC Cup.

Gibbs had 25 and I can't recall a decent one amongst that lot.

Murphy had a horror night with some shocking turnovers.

Wood struggled in the ruck, Rowe was very poor in defence and there was a real lack of fight and/or pride from the remainder of the players.

Smith didn't expect to play a full game but the injury to Thomas changed all that.

Overall, if that is what we are going to offer up this season, then 10th will be our best finishing position and 14th is the most likely.

Very sad & embarrassing start to the season, always can handle a loss but not when they play that brand of footy.

Conned again....

I can't think of an area where we were better than this time last year.

Actually I thought White and Docherty deserve a pass mark.  And Clem as well, even though I had a crack at him in the in game thread.

Murphy isn't a captains a-hole.  Jones kicked his two goals and went home.  Jaks was a major dissapointment.  Gibbs was a not very funny joke.  Rowe should never play again and neither should Bell.  Henderson was lazy.  Yarran's read too much of his own press.  Carrazo was earnest but the best is behind him. Simmo gave up.  Cripps has the in an under skills but not an AFL motor.

Thought Docherty was good.   Menzel showed a bit.

When the Tigers had the tempo in the 2nd we just can't slow a side down and hold onto the pill.

Couldn't have dreamed of a worse start.  Insipid.  Clueless.  Slow.  No leadership.  No positives.

Sorry, but Malthouse is finished on tonight's "effort"..... Gameplan is hopeless.  Long bomb around the boundary to contests.  We let decent players leave and replace them with crap.

12th would be a miracle, more likely bottom three.
DrE is no more... you ok with that harmonica man?
