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
I prefer A.

I think we bought into their story from the coach down

Some positives

Neale and Rich showed they can contribute with no support

Answerth did some terrific things

McStay has found a way to contribute consistently.
McStay shouldve gone to Cripps at some point. Would've had the physique to go with him. But I look at how Essendon played and it was a kid who kept him quiet. Just a bad day for us after 37 points up.

Been on the list long enough. Won’t make it.
At the very least can't work in a ruck tandem - doesn't have other elements to his game. Useful enough backup if Stef gets injured but no point him being in the team unless he is rucking 65% of the game.

Matho has continues his downward trajectory. No idea why we gave him a contract. Has had over 18 disposals once this season

I hope this is a real wake up call not just for the players but for a bunch of supporters on here. The arrogance that has crept in in recent weeks has been really poor. Many of us have become entitled quicker than Melbourne fans did last year.
Does it really matter if some supporters get carried away and expected a win? I expected us to get up by 30 points and all carlton supporters I know we're just hoping for a competitive game at best.

Fagan isn't talking about finals and rightly so, surely the players would be getting that message very clearly as well as everything else Fagan is saying. He paid Carlton respect when he spoke about them and he refuses to talk about the chance of finals or that we've even had a decent year yet. Do you think our players needed a wake up call and were getting ahead of themselves?

Was worried this may happen, and had money on Carlton as a fail safe. Still feel rubbish.

Some ruckmen have a footy nous.

Bring the ball back to ground from a high kick, provide a contest.

Archie does neither of this, instead punches the ball back into our defensive 50 or gets outmarked.

I cannot believe he is on our list for a few more years.

Today is not the day to pot individuals, no one played well today.

If we beat the Saints down here and Melbourne at the Gabba I’ll feel better about finals but I could see this being the downfall to spiraling out of the 8.

How bad is Martins kicking skills when he has a kick 12m out on a slight angle and Brown says its a 50/50?

I didnt think he was that bad. Our problems started in the ruck and our midfield was beaten from there. Neale well held in the second half.


Matho at least had a crack and is still young.

Will be tough if Zorko and Cameron are out injured or paying injured

His tackling was good. Everything else was appalling.

He won the footy to have a kick at goal in the last qtr but was leg tired. He was looking for options.

There were more who were culpable.

Drop walker and 2 rucks and we lost 2 of those games.
Need to end this 2 ruck idea
Martin and Archie are not forwards
