I see Leppitsch has just gave the Carlton players a big wack.
the issue at Carltoon is a culture issue and a few players should be moved on.



Former Richmond assistant coach Justin Leppitsch says the players at Carlton who have reportedly taken aim at coach David Teague under the guise of anonymity should be “the first ones out”.

“I get disappointed when I hear even the rumours that may not even be true of players going to ... whether it be a board member and bad mouthing the coach,” he said.

“To me, I‘d be looking at that player straight away saying, ‘You’re the first one out’. If you are going to go down that path, you are untrustworthy in my opinion, I don’t care who you are.

“So I think if the board do hear stuff like that from players, they’re the first ones I’d be ringing and saying, ‘You’re not a part of what we want’, I don’t care who you are.”

I am watching last nights OnTheCouch. Pass the rocket launcher.
Healy - games too long, must shorten it, less hammies.
Nick Roo - footy boring. Wildcard system!

What a bunch of crap.

Had a look at the 360 replay this afternoon. What a Pie love fest! They beat the 15th team on the ladder for Gods sake! And they only just fell in.

They do their homework don’t they? Pies have beaten last years wooden spooner, the team currently this years spoon favourite and a team whose coach is doubtful to last the season ( according to the same media).
yep, pies should be flag favourites

Remarkable how the media perception of players / clubs impacts online comments.

Last week Jack was asked a question last week around going into hubs, and he rightly commented that several players were against us and indicated that they wanted to put family first. Cue massive vitriol online, whinging Tigers, suck it up, you get paid to do a job, etc etc

This week Tim Membrey and Seb Ross leave the Saints camp (they are playing this week) as their partners are either about to give birth or have recently done so (remember Jack has a 5 month old). All the comments are, good on them, put family first etc.

The hypocrisy is profound amongst the AFL community and its the medias vitriol about us being a bunch of whingers (which is incorrect) that is driving this.

Mark Manure. My goodness. What an embarrassment. Not the only one in the media who is, but geezuz. Mince needs to start “reviewing” who he uses as regulars on his show. It’s beginning to reflect on him and his show.

As he is always, 4 weeks ago he was on a negative and bogan, unintelligent rant about this and that to do with the Blu-Tacs. Outraged. A week later it was all rose petals. Good young kids, working for each other and other base statements.

Now, this week it’s all a disaster again. Must have change ! He isn’t sure what change but .... just change !!!

Unless you like to have a laugh, dunno if there’s anyone less worth listening to on anything to do with football than Manure.

Dumb, semi senile, flip flopping, cliche driven numbskull. Just a dumb dinosaur.

He is stuck in the 80’s. About as relevant as stone washed jeans.
