You say that like it happens frequently. I think it's more so the sheer shock of actually achieving a win that it takes me a few days to digest and believe that it actually happened.

The wins we have had over the past few years are more fluke than by design so therefore you end up having a sense of relief rather than jubilation. Outside of the Bulldogs game, in what others has the team looked really proficient at what they do and truly believe they can win?

The fact the we've lost 22 out of a possible 25 against the Hawks highlights that this team never learns. Even after so much upheaval in the playing list and coaching staff we're still their bunnies. It's screwing embarrassing to be honest. I can't remember such a lopsided win\loss ratio in the history of the game outside of us against St Kilda. But Carlton being Carlton, they're are trying to level out the win loss between us and St Kilda as well.

Well done Carlton, well done! You make me so proud...
I mentioned nothing about win frequency, just asked why you dont post after a win which you didn't answer, but thanks  for the reply anyway.

Oh, I wasn't aware that I needed to balance out my posting on wins and losses threads. I'll keep that in mind for future reference. Although to be fair, it'll be pretty hard to keep the ratio consistent because of the sheer number of losses compared to wins.

How do you propose I do that. Any tips?

Come on guys, we are all Carlton people and hurting over this Mickey Mouse season is pretty pointless.

On this issue of playing the Crows, in my opinion they are not as bad as people make out, they are just not interested in the Mickey Mouse season so they are using it for longer term gains.

But do not be surprised that someone like McGovern moving to us, Gibbs playing his last AFL game, our rumoured interest in Crouch, offers the Crow's players just enough motivation to play four quarters.

Will their coach scupper those efforts though by doing a Bolton and loading up with kids he wants a look at?

Hawks aside it hasnt been a major disaster season like we saw during the BB era, we are a couple of decent A grade players short of being able to do some consistent damage to the better teams but there is light at the end of the tunnel and as I have said many times before you only need that one trade period where you pick up the missing pieces ie like Richmond did and you are a contender.

Sometimes I wonder if Spanner is the devils advocate, the devil himself or just taking the piss. But for that kick after the siren against Port?

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..."

Mark this event down in your calendar...

Seriously, who is this wank?

Says the flog to end all flogs. Seriously "laj", do you have a stance on anything or do you just randomly flitter between threads and pipe in with meaningless dribble without offering anything of value?

You're like the proverbial coulda woulda shoulda guy. Stop being a d*ck!

If we are St Kilda of the 70s and 80s I need to get to the social club urgently

I'll have to ask the Mrs, she used to go there and be hit on by a few players. This was before we met, I put a stop to those antics. lol

 I think it was owned in the end by Trevor Barker and a few mates, maybe Michael Roberts?

I think it was a smaller venue bolted onto one of the bigger places, I think it was in Tulip Street or Cheltenham Road, I recall the Aints using a nearby gym.

For years pre-80s the Southside Six was the venue for the older Aints players.

Stuffed if I can remember the name!

I couldn't get her to divulge anymore than she never got much further than the social club.
