No offence to Carton Supporters, but watching Carlton belt the living suitcase out of Richmond in Round 1 to open the season is becoming excruciatingly embarrassing, could you guys at least consider giving them six goals in to start the match this time?

IMO Carlton are in danger of missing the finals. Ratten does not look safe at all. Shocked

Some very fickle supporters at Carlton, I'm a Ratten fan so as far as I'm concerned I say get of his back.

Four weeks ago they were licking his boots now they want to sink them in Mad Still half the season to go and the last 2 games they have been beaten by 2 goals each game, they aren't playing that bad. But they do have a couple of hard ones to come (Hawks & Collingwood)

Not pushing Ratten to be sacked or anything! IMO many people thought Carlton would be a Top 4 side, especially after the opening rounds of the season. I was just wondering how many of the past losses, the board would have expected to win (I know you want to win every game) and how that would affect their thought processes.

Is the list not as good as many think?

Many people viewed the seemingly tough draw Collingwood, Geelong and Hawthorn had and compared it with the easier draw of Carlton and considered that may be enough to squeeze them into the top 4. I think their list is okay, obviously lacking in some areas, but which club isn't, I just think their game style is too predictable and would be suspect in finals.

They really need a dominant midfield to pull it off, and the injury to Murphy, as well as Judd's loss of leg speed is not helping.

It comes down to lack of depth really, injuries to key players have killed off their chances this year.

They may find some form again as they get players back, but I think it will be all too late.

Poor old Juddy, had that look on his face after Friday night's game as if to say, "Why in hell did I ever leave West Coast?".

As a mate whose opinion I respect considerably on football said to me on Saturday - the media are going to have the best go they can at getting rid of Brett Ratten for no apparent good reason.

They have crucial injuries. A skipper that is struggling under the sheer weight of carrying a team for too long. Too many players who display their best and worst in the space of a game, but I'm not sure how much Ratten can be held to account for that.

This looks a classic example of the media dictating that a coach must go.

Unfortunately CK, that appears to be the role of the media these days, which is why I have such dislike and mistrust of the media.

Speaking of media on a local front, I hear a media person declared the winner of this year's premiership .... geez, I hope he's right Smile

I think you are spot on CK, Carlton set very high standards re there coaches and I do think that he is on a shaky ground at the moment. I really don't feel that he can do much more with the personell that he has and unfortunately there depth is being tested.

On a different note, it seems Carlton are to change their 'Sturt' guernsey next year.

From the age:
"Carlton has admitted it erred when it changed to that embarrassing pale blue clash strip. Club president Stephen Kernahan said on Friday night that the jumper was "dreadful" and that a new white and navy version was in the pipeline."

Switching away strips for AFL clubs has become as common place as sacking coaches. If they actually stuck with the pale blue jumpers, that would be news.

I don't agree that Ratten's doing all he can, his game style really isn't good enough to match it with the better teams. Their midfielders don't work anywhere near as hard as others when they haven't got the ball.

The story doing the rounds tonight is that Ratten is a dead man walking and Malthouse is set to get the gig.

Malthouse obviously has a point to prove still, but I can see this being another Dennis Pagan episode.

Carlton footballer Josh Bootsma has had his contract torn up by the club for engaging in inappropriate behaviour on social media.

Bootsma, who was drafted by the Blues in 2011, was informed of his sacking this afternoon.

It is not yet known what material he had sent online.

The Blues confirmed his sacking via a statement, saying he had breached the club's and the AFL's Code of Conduct. "The decision comes after a series of disciplinary issues with Bootsma that have compounded, and follows discussions with both Bootsma’s management and the AFL Players Association," the statement read.

Carlton's General Manager of Football Operations, Andrew McKay, described Bootsma's sacking as disappointing.

"The Carlton Football Club has high expectations of its players and staff; we expect them to uphold certain standards," McKay said.

"The Club has attempted to offer Josh numerous forms of welfare and support in recent times, however he has continuously not lived up to the standards expected of a senior listed AFL player.

"This latest issue has left the Club with no other choice but to take this course of action.

"Carlton players and staff receive education on both social media policy and AFL Code of Conduct on a regular basis."

Bootsma had played 14 games for Carlton over the past three years.

He was recruited from South Fremantle in the Western Australian Football League.

While he is hardly a household name in the AFL, his sacking is a further blow for one of the oldest clubs in the competition, which is enduring one of its worst seasons in a decade.

Silly boy - well not really a boy I guess, should have probably known better.

Blue the chance at an opportunity that a lot of young guys would give their right arm for.

I wonder if his 'partner' is asking questions too - sending nude photos to 'a fan' when she is pregnant with his child. Naughty naughty.
