From Jay Clark in the HS, a breakdown of what happened and when:

How did the disaster play out? Jay Clark takes an in-depth look at each goal and what went wrong for the Blues.

3 MIN 15 SEC REMAINING Q3

Josh Bruce goal

Car 82 WB 61

A Liam Stocker turnover in the middle of the ground was costly as Caleb Daniel found Lachie Hunter all alone with a surgical kick to the forward flank. Hunter, who played on with a broken hand, kicked long to Josh Bruce who outmarked Lachie Plowman 15m from goal.

1 MIN 30 SEC REM Q3

Aaron Naughton goal

Car 82 WB 68

What an effort from the Dogs’ star spearhead. Naughton produced a desperate chase on Adam Saad to force the Blues’ speedster into a kicking error and then took a big pack mark at the top of the goal square from the kick back inside 50m from Easton Wood. It was a strong grab from Naughton who plucked the ball either side of Jacob Weitering and Liam Jones in the marking contest.

15 MIN 20 SEC REM Q4

Lachie Hunter goal

Car 83 WB 74

The Blues were pinned down in their back half when Adam Saad gave away two free kicks. Saad first pushed Lachie McNeil in the back and then caught Lachie Hunter high as the Dogs’ ballwinner swivelled and leant in with his head to draw the high contact 35m from goal. Nice set shot from Hunter to slot his second major.

13 MIN 40 SEC REM Q4

Marcus Bontempelli goal

Car 83 WB 80

The Dogs built this one up from half back where Bailey Dale hit Caleb Daniel with a 50m bullet to the wing. Zaine Cordy and Mitch Hannan linked up on the wing before skipper Marcus Bontempelli took another contested mark at the top of the goal square in front of Liam Jones. Josh Bruce bodied Liam Stocker out of the way so Stocker couldn’t spoil from the side and there was no other aerial support for Jones. Also no Carlton player stood the mark for the Bontempelli set shot from point blank range.

7 MIN 40 SEC REM Q4

Aaron Naughton goal

Car 84 WB 88

A loopy kick from Michael Gibbons on the wing was quickly repelled as Marcus Bontempelli off two steps produced a dazzling pass to Jason Johannisen tight on the boundary line. Johannisen then kicked to the advantage of Naughton who was too strong for Matthew Parks over the back in a one-on-one marking contest. The 35m set shot continued the Dogs’ hot run.

6 MIN 50 SEC REM Q4

Anthony Scott goal

Car 84 WB 94

Adam Treloar fought hard inside the centre square to continue the annihilation out of the middle. Jack Macrae showed great vision to find Caleb Daniel with another brilliant Bulldogs’ handpass to set up Taylor Duryea 10m in front of Liam Stocker on the forward flank. Lachie McNeil roved the long kick in off the back of the pack and unselfishly handballed to Anthony Scott who goaled from close in on the run. The Carlton back line was under siege.

5 MIN 50 SEC REM Q4

Josh Bruce goal

Car 84 WB 100

Marc Pittonet grabbed it out of the ruck and kicked long but Caleb Daniel continued his excellent second half with a one-handed intercept mark. Patrick Lipinski, Bailey Smith and Anthony Scott then burned off their Carlton opponents spreading hard to the edges of the Marvel Stadium turf to bring the ball forward. Josh Bruce had no opponent in the forward pocket and finished the play with a curling left foot snap.

1 MIN 55 SEC REM Q4

Patrick Lipinski goal

Car 85 WB 106

The Dogs went the full length of the ground for their eighth-straight goal. Josh Bruce took the crucial contested mark on the wing, making Liam Jones pay for going the mark instead of a spoil from behind. Ruckman Jordon Sweet won a contested ball at ground level to release Marcus Bontempelli who delivered another gem of a pass on the left foot to hit Patrick Lipinski in space deep in attack.

"The Blues were pinned down in their back half when Adam Saad gave away two free kicks. Saad first pushed Lachie McNeil in the back and then caught Lachie Hunter high as the Dogs’ ballwinner swivelled and leant in with his head to draw the high contact 35m from goal. Nice set shot from Hunter to slot his second major."

niether of them were free kicks!!!  dogs got a lot of iffy frees early, which we weathered.  what we couldnt weather, was the "monstering" (as someone on here put it) at stoppages.  some of it was sheer brilliance by Bont, Mccrae and Treloar, but some of it was down to our blokes being tackled before they had the footy, and blocked off the footy etc.

in the Sun, the article next to this one is Bevvo complaining about Bont's deliberate out of bounds (which was a terrible call) - the article also mentions the Dogs have had the least frees against this year.   they certainly seemed to get away with a bit against us.  as a few on here have pointed out - we never complain about this stuff in the media.  Bevvo does, and they get away with a bit more on field... coincidence?

Zac Williams was door stopped at PP yesterday, said he is still learning to play midfield. The most expensive trainer wheels in the comp, FMD!
What do you expect
113 games over 8 years at another club on a HBF
He spent 77% of his 11 games in defence in 2020
We pay him $4.8 million over 6 years to be a quick outside mid because we were a slow team in 2020
and because he played one good midfield game in a preliminary in the wet
A nominated it to be a screwing disaster
So far I am right
We are a dumb club and that’s why we have not played in a preliminary for 20 years
Finished bottom 6  thirteen times over 20 years in a period of growing equalization.

Now onto another matter
Williams is clearly injured
I live in Busselton in WA
I would be happy to part with some money to be a member even though I probably could go to only one game when The Blues play in Perth.
I won’t when the club won’t tell its supporters what is wrong with a guy who they have paid so much money for
So screw the club

Considering how many of our top players played crap/injured is good coaching that had us 27 points up?
2012 HAPPENED!!!!!!!

To me one of the biggest positives was cuningham.

2 decent efforts back to back.....a first for him.

He's showing breakaway speed, sidesteps through packs, great kicking.......BIG TICK.
And 12 possessions
Your easily pleased arnt you
The guy just isn’t competitive enough
He isn’t called cameo cunners for nothing

You are never pleased.

It wasn't the number of touches he got is what he did that got me excited.
He showed more in that game than LOB has shown his whole career.

Genius for 2.5 Qtrs, surrendering 27pts so crap there after, apparently only the crap teams do that! :o

@madbluboy‍ You won't win friends and influence people by highlighting such contradictions around here.

For example how the Bulldogs super team and coaching panel surrendered a 26pt lead the week before!

Showing more then O’Brien wouldn’t be hard
Is 12 possessions good enough for a mid
I’ve always said he has great skills
He simply doesn’t want it enough judging by the lack of output

Comparing Cunningham to LOB is a silly debate lacking in context, like fans trying to compare Zac Williams 2021 front loaded wage with the long term worth of BigH.

A bit like comparing disposals in isolation to gauge a players contribution to the team.

Fwiw....cunners had....
2 goal assists.....equal most with Ed
4 tackles....most was 5
3 i50s.......most was 4
9 score involvements....=2nd
83.3% DE......4th overall behind Betts, parks, docherty....highest mid!
19 pressure acts.....2nd to Walsh


So to me that's shows me a player who is working hard back and forward, using the ball well and setting up goals.

So yeah, good enough for me considering what a lot of his team-mates did (or didn't do)

I'm wrapped to see the improvement in Cuningham... especially as I believe I was one of his chief critics. The time spent by Luke Power with Cuningham, especially helping his defensive game and concentrating for 120 minutes has been worth its weight in gold - thus far. I hope he continues with his improvement as he really could be a very dangerous ingredient in our mid/forward combo.
Only our ruthless best, from Board to bootstudders will get us no. 17

Yes, 4 tackles, and not worthless half-hearted attempts, he actually stopped the opponents moment!
