we had our chance last year mate. West Coast with Gaff and Nic Nat out and on the MCG should not have beaten us. Unfortunately some of our guns saved there worst game of the year for the GF
Gaff, Nic Nat and Shepard, or Jamie Elliott, Daniel Wells and practically our entire backline? I know which I’d rather have...

How funny is it hearing Hardwick complain about injuries and wanting some luck on that front? Amazing what a charmed run of few injuries across 2 seasons can do for a team - oh, that’s right, a bunch bog average low skilled chaos ball plodders get a premiership. #tigershaveinjuries
How quickly they forget
Was thinking the same thing, also thought you never heard Bucks complain or blame injuries last year. Pure class

Depth is a magical thing

Geelong next

Anything other than a 8 goal first q by us next week will be UNACCEPTABLE.
We can’t win a game by 8 goals.

We beat Carlton by 24 and 20 points last year.

I hope we can turn the corner and put a foot on the throat of a side but hasn’t happened for a while.

Not sure if Brisbane counts. We still let them have 21 scoring shots.

Considering their best standard is putrid, we’ll cope just fine.
We just beat them twice last year and lost to them in the only match in 2017 and also lost to them in 2016.

Pretty ****ty considering this must be Carlton’s worst 10-20 year period in 150 years.

I am hoping we are more than just fine and we smash them by 100+.

This theory might ring true for good teams who have an outlier loss, but it definitely doesn't for teams that have won 4 out of their last 60 games.
Carlton have won 8 out of the last 51 games including today.

One of those wins was against Collingwood.

Whilst I expect a win, I do not expect a lacklustre performance from Carlton.

We cannot keep kicking 91.87 (51%) accuracy for goal and expect to continue to get wins.

I said they would go through undefeated. Then GWS beat them..still they won’t lose another game, just like Sydney won’t win another game this year.
The games against us and GWS could have gone either way. Lucky at least one of them went against Geelong.

They still could lose to Port, Brisbane, Hawthorn and Richmond. Crazy that as a top 8 side they play only Hawthorn and Sydney twice. Actually it’s insanely rich.

Very true, and what’s even better is that Richmond traded out some of their depth to fit in Lynch. You didn’t need to be a football genius in order to see how risky that could be and to predict how that was going to turn out.

Carlton will be keen to atone for their performance yesterday, so we cannot go into the game not switched on. Looks like they will be missing their best defender in Jones however.

That's always been how the fixture has worked though - they were a middle six side last year hence they get a fixture this year that reflects that.

We shouldn't be complaining given our fixture last year was 100% reflective of us being a bottom six side in 2017.
