Tigertuff, just remember a couple of years back when Richmond was crap and all they could manage was 9th spot specialist, yet possibly marginely better then carlton at that time when your supporters and some of your board and big name supporters was calling for  Hardwicks sacking.... well  I bet  the board and its merry supporters are glad that they didnt get rid of him now.

 

Carlton over the years have not  been that great with coaches  a wrong choice (however i didnt think he would get us there) was Ratten...atleast he had the boys somewhat firing and in his last season as coach was plagued with injuries.....  Malthouse was the dumbest aquisitions of carltons time, the board thought  Ratten got them to contention and Malthouse would walk straight in to gain a premiership only to have failed.

 

When Bolton arrived, he was given the oppurtunity to build from the ground up and said quite bluntly succuss wasnt going to happen straight away  as well will be rebuilding  for atleast 3 years and in that time  Bolton has replace 42 players wether the players left by choice or by Bolton culling them...  What needs to Happen  now is the team to come  more stable and playing as a group and start believing in them selves....

 

History was made last weekend 1st time ever Carlton had been 0-6 and probably 0-8 in the next 2 weeks... its hard watching the games we have played and sometimes we think where  to next.

 

We could look at sacking Bolton but where is that going to get Carlton a further 5 years behind as you will be looking at a new coach with a different game plan and the players will have to start again with a new selection of players the new coach wants....  as i said this has been a part of carltons problem is changing coaches.

 

Yeah i can see Gpj views on this as all of us Carlton supporters would much rather be at the top instead of being where we are at...

 

Remember the coach is 1 man coaching 22 players,  he can give the tools  to the 22 players and show them how to use those tools, but at the end of the day its those 22 players on the field  that has to use those tools  in the correct way ....

 

the fact is bolton has now got a very young side with some good up coming players like cripps, C Curnow, fisher and a couple of others that are doing own, these young players arre learning and they will make mistakes along the way....

 

 

Wasnt having a crack - its going to take more than 1 premiership to rid myself of 35 years worth of demons  :D

 

But seriously, usually by the 3rd season of a rebuild you start seeing an upward trend, it looks like you guys are bottoming out now! and with Murphy, Kruezer, Smith and a few others reaching the end soon, could get even worse.

i know ya not having a crack.  

 

i agree to a point but it doesnt help having murphy kruiser docherty and half alot more on a injury list but i dont make ecuses to the way carlton has gone...  however they are very young side with stuff all experience..

 

but who is Smith oh do you mean Clem Smith a young lad from W.A...  well he truely ran his race in 2016 in Boltons first year as coach... Clem Smith  went out pre season and got into a bit of a scuffle that needed police intervention  , however tho no charges was laid or anyone was injured... this upset Carlton and  Bolton to no end..

 

Clem Smith only played 7 Afl senior matches for blues and spent all 2016 playing  for the Northern bullants and at season end was released from the blues and now is  back in W.A playing in the wafl league

 

it must be the number 25 guernsy as Fev also wore that number funnily enough

 

This was the Last Smith to have played for Carlton in which has only ever been 7 Smiths to have played for carlton

 

they where 

 

Barry Smith Last game round 13, 1960 v Fitzroy  7 goals  and only played 6 games

 

Clem Smith Last Game round 23, 2015 vs Hawthorn 0 goals 7 games

 

Jeremy Smith Debut and only Game: Round 8, 1993 vs Footscray 1 goal 1 game

 

Jesse Smith Last game  round 21, 2006 Vs Collingwood  0 goals 2 games

 

lindsay Smith Last game round 22, 2002 vs Essendon 0 goals 3 games

 

Peter Smith  last game round 17, 1970 vs Fitzroy  10 goals 15 games

 

tony Smith last Game round 21 1974  vs Essendon 0 goals 2 games

 

if your Name is Smith you wouldnt want to play for Carlton you will not get to play many.... well to be exact  Peter Smith played 38 games in total but started at  Melbourne

 

 

but i think you mean Jones dont you tigertuff

Seems like Buddy's tests finally came up clear and he's back.

Only player I know of that has had mysterious breaks without obvious injury on two occasions.

Guarantee the AFL made sure he wasn't tested in the last 4 weeks.

They don't want anyone of note to get 3 strikes.

I saw a number of Swans players make intentional contact with the umpires at the conclusion of tonight's game. If they don't get a Curnow penalty then the AFL is farked.

Please explain the difference between a touch to the arm during the game and a crushing handshake after the game ?

Actually the AFL is farked.

I've watched more NRL games than AFL this year by a good margin. Not at all related to the Blues as they've been crap for years. The game is just so boring.

Words from Paul Roos as I type. They grind out games really well.

In history he will be the man who started the demise of the game.
