Weather in Sydney hasn't been great.

No panic stations
Had that pencilled in as a loss and we still finish second. Fortunately no significant injuries (pending JW corkie)

Hopefully back on winners board next week without bulldogs and McNaughton.

Been saying it all year, Orasio offers nothing at all. No speed. No possessions. No tackles. No body contact. No goals (1 today tho).

Disappointing. But we came back well. At least there are a few guys putting their hands up (at last) in the 2's.

Disappointed at the lack of a crowd.
Particularly disappointed at the lack of Carlton crowd, we should have sold that place out.

As Paul noted in the in game thread, it’s not the end of the world and there are lessons we can take from it.
Let’s go BIG !

We had Injuries to key players.
They had none.

They couldn't miss at goal.

We only played 1.5 quarters.

It was on their home deck.
They were favoured to win the flag over us at the start of the year.

We've come off one of the hardest runs of anyone all year.

We played 1 short until owies came on.



.....and we still only lost by 2 goals.

An important lesson.

We will be better for it.

Cottrell should have come back via the VFL. 7 possessions was not enough.
Fantasia - well, there was always last week. I didn't expect a repeat.
Owies - why? He is our 3rd best goalkicker!
Kennedy: 21 possessions and 2 goals wasn't that bad.
Ollie Hollands had 17 possessions, one of his best for the year. Elijah only had 16.

They did their homework. Getting on top of Cripps removed our drive and the other guys didn't step up.
At least Toby Greene did nothing.

Cripps 33 touches, 11 clearances and 2 goals....and they got on top of him....it's funny, but you're right.
Greene 33 touches 6 clearances and a goal....and he did nothing.....it's funny because you are also right.

Thought when they got their hand on the ball and controlled the play their leg speed was too much for us and we couldnt get near them. Walsh being closely checked means our main run is gone and Voss needs a plan for when this happens as 100% in finals this is going to be the case.
Surely Motlop comes in for that No14.

It was Tom Green with 33, not Toby.

Weak as piss Carlton !!

After dominating the first and setting up a match-winning 39-point lead, their big egos got in the way for the rest of the game until the absolute death when they tried to pinch it.

Zac Williams, hang your head in shame, that play on from a mark just inside the F50 (near to 3/4 time) was simply unacceptable and it directly cost us a goal on the turnover.

And you Charlie Curnow, how dare you masquerade as a league footballer when your second efforts are either non-existent or more importantly, simply lazy. It's all well & good to demand silver service delivery but unless you respect the extremely hard work your team-mates upfield put in to get it to you by fighting hard to keep in our F50, then you are a passenger and a fraud !!

I could see Tom De Koning trailing Briggs at CHB and then he let him run all the way down to near full forward and take an uncontested mark, thankfully he missed his shot at goal. However, that was absolutely pathetic defence especially when at the last moment, whilst still jogging forward, De Koning pointed further downfield expecting a smaller team-mate to man up on Briggs. Effing not good enough Tom, you too can hang your head in shame.  

Tonight's effort is why I am not convinced we are the premiership threat many people have been saying we are. Far to often we have tried to lairise with dinky kicks and lookaway handballs etc and they have worked, tonight they didn't and look what happened, they made us pay.

The Giants mids were desperate and quelled our midfield drive which in turn, gave them first use far to often, they thoughly deserved their win - hats off !!

If this doesn't set off an alarm bell at Princes Park then I don't know what will.

Toby Greene: 12 possessions for 2 goals. Better than Charlie, but not why we lost.

That was a weird game. Started and finished well, nothing in the middle.

Reminded me of some the of the games we played in 1982, which, well happened for interesting reasons. Knew people in the club then. Not in this day and age though.

Seen us play much worse than that and win a flag. Weren't going to win every game. No side does hence no-one has ever gone through undefeated, Comes down to next week and how we rebound.

Some of our key players were rubbish today

They curtailed Walsh’s influence. That was huge for them. They looked pretty good, didn’t they!… why have they been so mediocre this year?
