Peter Jackson Hates Carlton

Great podcast. It’s really heartening to hear that Carlton affected Essendon so badly. I love to hear this. This goose talks it up about being a business yet consumes himself with personal hate. This is why they’re no good and are in crisis and I couldn’t be happier. Bring on 2021 so we can all celebrate more Essendon failure. A filthy rabble who spend more time hating than winning.

Andrew Krakouer

What a well spoken young man. How he turned his life around was really worth listening to. Andrew is the type of role model the Federal Government should be employing to give hope to the under privileged in our community. All our youth would benefit from his words and actions.
