...The only player missing from your current backline from Rd 1 is Vlaustin and at the time Short was playing his role?This is what I don't get. You cry injury when it effects your side yet celebrate your round 1 victory while ignoring that you played our vfl side in round 1 due to being smashed injury wise.
Just go look at the side. We had no midfield outside Dusty and cotch. Dusty also playing first game after father's death and should not have played.
Our backline also was guttered and in that game the umpires gave you a complete ride. So why are 99.9% of Carlton supporters after beating a heavily injury compromised Richmond side acting like you actually smashed a full strength Richmond and by doing so you have already proven to be now a better side then the tigers?
Somehow I don't think that equates to missing Weitering, Mcgovern, Williams and McDonald. To be replaced by:
Boyd - played less than 10 games,
Durdin - arrived at the club a week ago,
Young - played about 30 games
Plowman - widely scrutinised as being a walking sieve
Then to add to it missing our main ruck and Cerra who would be a walk in first choice mid for you.
