Carlton are so good with their properganda, it's either that or their supporters buy anything.

Seriously though they're hyped every season to improve, and any time you point out nothings happened most people i know come back saying "It's still better than the malthouse era". Is it though? Malthouse before he was sacked already had a win, which is half of what they achieved last year.

Nothing has changed, and it is hilarious

Watching Carlton Essendon and I love the 6-6-6 already.
First clearance an it goes to Daniher leading from deep 1 on 1.

I think the rule changes this year by the AFL have been good to be honest. I wish they could enforce the 6-6-6 more over the game but sadly can't see it

yeah agree although i reckon the hands in the back could be a campaigner of a rule. its 1 the players can feel the hand and fall forward on. can already see it losing a game for someone

Yeah but that was going on in footy for years that's why they tried to change it in the first place. Reckon it'll be less frustrating than the free for just placing a hand there

Yeah, it's having the desired effect so far hey. I can see us really taking advantage of it almost more than any other team as well. Dominant ruckman (potentially x2) dominant clearance team, 2 strong marking key forwards in TMac and Weid, and if we've got Preuss or Gawn resting down there, both are so hard to defend against, particularly if they're getting a 3rd defender likely giving away 10+cm.

I think if you wanted to bring it in all over the ground, it would majorly slow the game down. It works at centre bounces because there is time to sort it out, but at a boundary thrown in, its going to be delayed 10-15 seconds to give everyone a reasonable time to get into their zone, quarter lengths will blow out massively, which no one wants.

No I agree you can't bring it in all over the ground because of that but I wish they could somehow.
That an the extended kick out was making it much harder to set up the press from first look. Small changes which seemed to improve the game IMO.

Yeah, thank god the kick in changes they've made seem to make a bit of a difference, so they aren't tempted to bring in the 18m goal square!

I wonder if it will get tweaked so the man on the mark stands at 25. Theoretically you could then get the ball to the middle with one kick which hopefully means teams will leave blokes at the other end.
I mean I thought footy was improving last year an it still reverted to horrific play mid year so hopefully that doesn't happen

This rag and scrag footy has to end. I’m too often seeing Tommy gun getting outmanoeuvred last year as the swarm of followers would roll and maul the field. Bring back the biffo while we’re at it. Vandenberg a likely candidate this weekend.

The quickest way to get rid of gut punches and scraggin would be to allow retaliation.

You must have the phone ringing constantly with invitations to participate in policy think tanks.

Is this your code for pub sessions?
It’s not even a very convincing code, is it? Every few months you really need to update the code. When people are looking for you - a colleague can be primed to say “attending a strategic performance benchmarking session” which gets you by for a bit.

Other useful codes:
- if someone says they are monitoring a situation, it means they had forgotten the issue totally until asked.
- if someone says they are ‘actively’ monitoring a situation, it also means they’d forgotten the issue, but have used the monitoring excuse previously so need to diversify:
- if a job description describes a ‘dynamic’ environment, don’t apply. It means under-resourced and overseen by lunatics so everyone keeps leaving.
