Dear Mr Matthew Kruezer The heart and soul of any organisation, no matter if it is a business, school or a sporting team, is what one person can bring to the organisation. In footy, especially Carlton, there has always been those players that step through the doors at Ikon Park, bringing with them heart and […]Read more "Dear Mr Kreuzer…"
I sit down and strap myself in – waiting. The equipment checked, making sure all is in place. A button pushed. The sound of motion reverberates, and screams and yells echo. It has begun. It starts slow, laborious and disappointing. Then momentum begins, and fear takes hold. Then you rise, and as you do, you […]Read more "What A Ride!"
The match against GWS started with that small tingle of hope, and by the last quarter, the legs got weary, the mind got foggy and tired, and stamina oozed out of the pores from sweat. The players couldn’t hold on or make any real dent in our once third-quarter lead. I’m a “half-glass” full person, […]Read more "Hope…"
The sheer disappointment we are all feeling today runs deep into our veins. We can handle most things, but losing to Collingwood (and Essendon for that matter), cuts deeper. It’s a rivalry that began in the late 19th Century and is one that still permeates the very soul of every supporter today, and after listening […]Read more "Disappointing…but…"
The game against Gold Coast was while a winning one, not very pretty at all. But then again, the humidity, the heat and having been to Darwin, I know that this can make a person feel the pressure of that humidity and temperature. It will affect the handling of a football and the way it […]Read more "We Need The Experience of These Players!"
Every Carlton (and Fremantle) supporter tuned in, watched and read with zealous every single word, picture and video of the amazingness of that Carlton win on the weekend, irrespective of whether they were thrilled or angry. The debate has been epic regarding the validity of the initial down-the- ground, free-kick, the place and who took […]Read more "Wow! Just WOW!"
As a precursor, let me be frank about this. This is my view, my opinion and my outlook. I don’t expect some to agree and that is their right. However, I do expect that my view and opinion is respected even if it does differ from some, as that is their right, as I would […]Read more "I Am At Peace…"
We are all still quite raw in terms of our emotional reaction after the result of the Carlton game on the weekend. I know that on Monday, I could not and as a side note, I still cannot, watch or even listen to the commentary about the game. (David King’s comments about the game is […]Read more "Heartbroken…but so damn proud!"
The AFL has come out and stated the Grand Final may not be in Melbourne. It has been suggested to actually hold it in the states that have so far, supported the game by allowing teams to be ensconced in their states in the form of “hubs”. In that respect, the states have been incredible. The […]Read more "We Need More Time…"
In the past close games would have been a simple case of lost opportunities, but not this year and not this team! For the second week in a row, Carlton won against all odds that stated we wouldn’t come close, but not this team, not this year. After a second week in a row, the […]Read more "Not this year! Not this team!"
