Brothers, we have been Carlton's bitches since they poached Barassi from us at the end of our last premiership year. The match today will be no different, With Big Jack and his cronies looking on, expect Carlton to defeat the Dees by 18 points - yes, this result will vindicate the machinations of master recruiter Stephen Silvagni!

Clearances only an issue if they are under no pressure, Carlton are a piss poor indicator of this because they are terrible by foot. Need to improve to break even against the Dogs.

The tall timber F50 did not work at all. Weid looked better than Brown.

Clearances and conversions. If we can improve these two facets of the game, then all things are rainbows and lollipops.

No injuries. Just a meh kind of game really. Once in front, kept them at arms length. Our backline and structures are the best in the comp. Not much else to comment on. Bit of a nothing game really.

Big 3 didn’t look good, but Weid was rusty and Brown looked totally unfit.
Run it for another week to Jackson is injured, but Brown out for him if he’s back.

GOOD
Professional win. Carlton are an attacking side, every time we got 20+ points up we just went into lockdown. Long kicks down the line, 0 switches. Just took carltons ability to play away from them. Wasn't exciting but we owned the game

Tmac first half, oh my

ANB was great

BAD
Carlton
Brayshaw - does such good running defensively but coughs it up. Every single time.

clearances - are we deliberately conceding clearances to set up attacks from the back half? Have gone so backwards in that area

FUGLY
BT - makes games genuinely unenjoyable to watch on TV. You don't respect Melbourne, we get it, call the game you mutt.


Expecting the same next week. Dogs game will be huge.
