    Can someone explain to me how Carlton can get five players in the All Australian Squad when they didn't make the eight?

    Surely they make the eight if these five players are worthy of All Australian nomination.

    wtf are they doing with natanui? under the knife again and looking to playing him again next year.

    as it is now the guy is effed for life, he'll be on crutches or worse in a few years.

    Don't worry about the big black panther. After his clean up and a big pre season he will be back leaping over tall buildings again. \:D/

    Curnow = Coleman Medalist
    Cripps = Third in Brownlow Betting
    Walsh = had a cracking year
    Weitering = Was the best Backman in the comp by a long way until he got injured half way through the season, battled on valiantly after injury.
    Saad = Best running half back in the game with an efficiency rate of 83% for his 24 disposals a game

    I actually think Docherty should have been in the squad before Weitering or Saad.

    The reason we didn't make the 8 was our bottom 6 players each week are spuds.
    O'brien, Plowman, Owies, Durdin, Dow, Newman, Newnes, and a raft of other players are just not up to AFL level as harsh as that seems.

    Stop using my stuff Dickers. Darcy is the Lumberjack or Telegraph Pole.
    Nic is superman….or was. 
    Stay off the Hungry Jacks Nic and return to being the best ruckman in the AFL.
    :x

    Deto, i think with the large number of new or young players coming into the squad (large for us weagles) that Nic Nat doesn't have to be the best ruckman in the AFL...

    He has to be fit enough to play 15 games at about 60% game time. And be in the squad and on the park to help Williams, Williams and Jameson develop in real game time.

    He's done his best for the club and if he goes around again, he has done as much as anyone at our club to get the club heading in the right direction.

    A sensational Clubman and over the journey has had as much of an impact as Worsfold did in his playing career.

    I am giving him one more go at it Rio. Can't see him going out as a cripple. I am backing the "big" man in before he becomes the "huge" man.

    becoming a father next month would have a great bearing on his future.
  • detonatordetonator    4,375 posts
    Kid will be too young to have lollies and treats in the fridge Falc so I reckon Nic will be ok next year. :D

    Ahh the worms come out of the woodwork.
    You could say the same about Tim Kelly since he left Geelong.
    BUT YOU CANT !!!!!
    Geez a few high draft picks would be handy right now for WC particularly after two years maturing in the system…..
    Could have been the difference between transitioning and rebuilding or playing finals or finishing 16th instead of 17th.
    What a Fu?k up.

    Ooh. Touched a nerve obviously. Haha.
    Doesn’t take much. Throw out the lure and instantly on the hook. Like shelling peas.
    Reckon the Dickers got rid of the wrong midfielder…..Oh well.
    =))
