    While I agree with Hamling, Christensen and McCarthy I don't think Suckling and Duryea are fair comparisons.

    I'm confused. What does picking up Newnes as a DFA have to do with Martin?

    PSD spots are contingent on list spots being available.

    I was at that game. We were comfortably in front at 3QT and Collingwood got within 3 points.

    It's not too late for Carlton to put this right. They still have a chance to show a semblance of good faith.
