Mitch Robbo 2 contested possessions, 3 against Freo, 4 against Essendon, 5 against the Bulldogs and 7 against Collingwood

Goes missing when things aren't going our way.

Some of the comments in here are hilarious. Keep it up guys it's great comedy
People are entitled to be pissed off especially after that performance. And in conjunction with it being a "game day' thread. Don't think there is any need for that. There will be overreactions of course

We just have no plan b
Just keep playing Lyons on Cripps
Why we do not try putting mcStay back

All our losses the other team gets a run on and we change nothing

Archie really found out today

Blood the kids.

Time to drop Rayner, Archie, Hipwood, McCarthy

Just lazy and ineffectual. We are a mentally weak team away from home. Fagan needs to make some changes after the bye.
Archie needs to go full stop.

McCarthy did a few good things, he isnt a big possession getter.

We really got beaten in th middle and we bombed it a lot, not our go when our fwd monster is soft.

Wholeheartedly disagree with that take. It was an away game against a red-hot opposition that we just lost. Not in the top 10 worst Fagan losses.
Red-hot opposition?

This wasn't Geelong in Kardina Park, or Collingwood at the G.

This is Carlton who are sitting dead last. Our players simply had too much of their own bathwater.

5th on the ladder and lost to the 18th on the ladder who had won 4 in 40 games. I would say it is pretty up there. Effort was there but we got dominated

Berry would've been handy out there today. Stupid bloody bakers cyst.

Neale seriously needs help out there, we've really only got one true A grade mid & it's him.

Ah, well. Onto next week.

Yes - Carlton who very nearly beat Collingwood a few weeks ago at the G. Carlton who had a major emotional boost this week. Carlton who at their best are a very good side. And they were at their best today.

Lions SM not doing themselves any favours.

"Tough day at the Office in Melbourne, Blues just wanted it more."

Hope Fagan doesn't take that approach and actually calls out poor performances in this presser.

This is season ending stuff. Cannot wait for the media backlash. Absolutely deserved. To many young heroes that are trash players. Rayner, hipwood witherden

2 ways of seeing it:

Lost to bottom of the ladder circus act who have only won once all season and 4 in 43

Or

Lost to team where their inspirational captain played a once in a season performance and the entire team lifted as a result.

Epically disappointing day for our football club on a day where we should have made bulldog proud

Because McStay was the only dangerous forward
Was not up our forward line much in the second half.
Why most forwards have low stats

Every week I see the 2 ruck as a liability
Big o can at least kick a goal although we down a player in the forward line and around the ground
