The Stupidity of AFL Rules - Re: Carlton
OK, following this round's results it now looks a certainty that Carlton will finish with the wooden spoon and with less than 5 wins.
So that means that Carlton will get first dibs on the 2 best kids in the land and the biggest and best out-of-contract player in the pre-season draft.
The only reason Carlton have been so sh1t this year is because of injury ... Allan, Ratten, Whitnall, Camporeale, Koutoufides, Manton and a host of other key-players have all been injured for crippling lengths of time resulting in Carlton having its worst season ever.
So basically, one of the richest and talent-laden clubs in Australia will have 2 future superstars and 1 current one on its list to go along with the ones it already has come next March.
Bring on the draft-lottery for fcuks sake!
"They picked on the wrong man - and the wrong country. It was like pouring petrol onto a fire as far as I was concerned.
There's an old saying that the dog that barks loudest never bites. They did a lot of barking but we bit them pretty hard. Uruguay's attitude just showed how scared they were of us - it was their last resort."
