Carlton coach Michael Voss has hit out at external figures who he says are trying to “flip over rocks” to find weaknesses at the Blues, insisting his club remains united and is making progress on the field.
Voss praised captain Patrick Cripps for calling out a false report on Monday that he and Sam Docherty stayed away from the team in a boutique hotel while the Blues were in Sydney.
He said Cripps was a “fantastic leader” after he uncharacteristically fired up on social media over the false report that he said questioned his character.
“He well and truly stood his ground, and so he should,” Voss said.
“Everyone keeps flipping over these rocks and keeps trying to find something.
“Keep flipping rocks, but the reality is that we’re pretty clear on what we need to do next and what it’s going to take to make sure that we turn it around really quickly.
