    Carlton off-season strife

    Thought their recent shenanigans were worthy of its own thread:
    http://www.theage.com.au/afl/carlton...1223-lcbe.html

    All this hot on the heels of Houlihan's and Walker's little 'incident' in the early hours of Sunday morning at Crown. Some of these footballers are as thick as bricks - sure Fev has more form than most but he is a hugely talented match-winning key forward, and even a bloke of his prodigious talents eventually found himself booted out of the club. Assorted fringe players and downright hacks of the calibre of Houlihan, Walker, Betts and Robinson would have to have collective IQ's of 20 not to realise that their actions have the potentially nasty outcome of drastically shortening their AFL careers. Carlton were stoked that Robinson managed to 'slide' down to pick 40 in the 2008 ND - I wonder why

    Big, dumb footballers. And the bluebaggers have heaps of them!
    Our club was born in blood and boots, not in AFL focus groups.

    I hate the Blues with an unhealthy passion, so reading of these indescretions has been like an early Christmas present.

    Carlton - the gift that keeps on giving.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Same here Comrade. Ever since they pinched Tommy Alvin off us. Always the elitist Club too which doesn't sit well with me either.

    This sort of things happens a fair bit and whilst Carlton have taken some step to fix the culture of the club, removing Fev was never going to be the full answer. Until they start banning fools like the Cats did with Johnson then it will be a slow road for them.

    For every Judd, Murphy, Gibbs and Kreuzer there will still be as many fools that need to be micro managed.

    I'm glad it's their problem to manage.

    He was just the tip of the iceberg.

    Andrew Walker was in at work on monday morning before we got to see the newspapers and said the scratches on his face were caused by a mishap at training. His parents(brother and sister) are very embarrassed at the moment.

    Re: Carlton off-season strife

    Is anyone else interested in the coincidence that Judd was at West Coast when it seemed to be a sort of a nighclub that played footy on the weekends and now all these behavioural problams at Carlton under his captaincy.


    What's that club going to get up to next? Maybe Captain Carlton will push an old lady over or something.

    Carlton still have a lot of work to do both with the players and the way their management approach running the club.
    You can't have a culture of cutting as many corners over such a long time and for it not to be riddled throughout the players, the coaches, the board and even the support staff etc and expect it to all be fixed by just removing Fev.

    That's the maximum that any club can fine a player for a first offence. It can go up for a 2nd serious offence.

    It just keeps on getting worse.

    A young rookie was handcuffed to another player & forced to drink until he was barely conscious when his family came to his rescue.


    Captive Carlton rookie and booze cruise shame

    A spokesman for Rivers Restaurant Cruises & Boat Charters said some players appeared to have been already drunk when they arrived.

    He said some players ignored warnings about their drinking and aggressive behaviour.

    "They were drunk as skunks and there was nothing we could do to control the alcohol consumption," he said.

    "It's actually quite embarrassing. They made absolute a---holes of themselves.

    Levi's family should take the matter up with the club and keep this sort of crap out of the papers.
