Congrats on a great win, watched the game on fox and found myself yelling in equal measures of frustration at missed opportunities & excitement at your young blokes never giving up.

Always support non Vic teams over the evil empire & great to see Qld up and firing.

Touk's 14 tackles were the second most in a single game in our history
Equal with Holman against North last year
and GABlett in our inaugural year

Ablett had 17 in 2015 against GWS (to go with 30 disposals and 3 goals mind you)

We need to stop having these runs of missed opportunities

1 goal 7 across the 'premiership' quarter + a few minutes either side.

Lots going on in that win. But a win nonetheless.
The Blues getting closer to Tasmania with every #1 pick overall.

Still the best 2 things so far this season:
(1) everyone keeps having a crack every quarter, and (2) we are hard to score against.
Excellent. Could not have asked for more on those 2 fronts.

A few poor things that have repeated.
Skill errors.
Decision making errors from (it seems like) 18 of the 22.
A touch slow without Weller, a lot slow without Weller and Powell.
Need more from Hanley.

For this game, a few of the players looked more tired and slow than last week. Will happen over the course of the season, but against a good team we would have been beaten pretty easily.

I thought Murdoch had his best game with us. Took a couple of real critical marks and used some of that pace he is famous for.
I have to eat my words re Murdoch. Was genuinely concerned after the Fremantle game that he was going to be a Malceskiesque liability in our back line. Has actually been pretty reliable since then - his maturity and experience has come in very handy at times. He has had more impact than Hanley or Joyce in our back line.

awesome win by you guys, but how do you think you guys got the bad side of the umpires, it was literally horrible both ways, in the last 5 minutes there was probably over 10-15 non decisions that could of turned the game both ways. anyways well done and good luck

Most people have said the umpires were atrocious for both sides alot of missed calls but the sling tackle on Powell was a terrible missed call.. I feel for Carlton that would of been devastating. Good luck this week!

i agree that it should've been a free kick and setterfield probably deserves a week and im not going to argue this any further because its not my team board, but setterfields tackle was one motion, i.e he didnt stop and then force him into the ground in another direction and he tackled him due to momentum he already had (basically the same cripps tackle on swallow last year) he also had one arm free that he could've got rid of the ball

yeah nah, 1. gray didnt have the ball for about 2 seconds while nyhuis was still tackling him powell did,2. nyhuis also basically made sure his head hit the ground, by lifting him him and then dumping him into the floor while setterfield went down with momentum (nyhuis had none) and 3. one arm was clearly free in the tackle

I think every mutual fan would agree the quality of umpiring was sub standard both ways. Even a quick look at your teams meltdown thread tells me a fair amount of clear eyed Carlton supporters thought the same. Emotions are a hard thing to control sometimes and naturally when your team puts in an abysmal performance, the umpires are the first to be blamed. But make no mistake, it went both ways yesterday.

I think that's all we will need to say on it. Anything further will be seen as bitter trolling

dude, there was 0 sling in it, but yes obviously at the time i would’ve thought it was a sling tackle, but after watching it again a couple of times, there was no slinging motion at all

1. He held Powell for enough time before then slinging his head down hard into the turf
2. That one arm free had the ball and how was he supposed to get rid of it? The arm that he could've used to protect himself was held.

2 weeks with an early plea.

It's the tackling players responsibility to tackle fairly
Full stop
We ended up with one less rotation and one good kid with concussion because your player elected to tackle poorly
End of discussion

GWS should get Big Mummy to go round in the first quarter sling tackling the best 4 opposition mids into the ground if they make the Grand Final
No send off rule other than the Docs having to mandatorily take the potentially concussed player off the ground
He could care less if they gave him the first 8 weeks of 2021 off

my guess would either to drop the ball and kick it, or drop the ball and be penalised, setterfield went with momentum exactly what cripps did.

Your guess ? if I knew earlier what you going to do , I won't get myself knock off in the first place . You acting like is all Powell fault that he got himself concussed.
