Robert Heatley Stand / Re: AFL Rd 18 2024 Post Game Prognostications Carlton vs Western Bulldogs
Cincotta: did a decent job, considering he wasn't in the middle again Bontempelli much. Even he had a couple of crucial kicking errors, although not as many as most. Bontempelli got most of his ball in the middle, which hurt us.

At centre bounce, the dogs did to us what we've been doing to other sides. That's the game right there. Goals from that source punch above their weight by minimising effort. Especially with gun forwards 1 - 1 in good position.

Sure did. Not sure if he was referring to this and last week or just this week, but made it clear it was happening. I wonder if he gets a please explain from the AFL.

I noticed that. To Vossy's credit he was completely transparent and accountable.

Why would the AFL be interested?
They've just accepted Dimma's blasphemous comments on his players. C Scott's comments on umpiring inconsistencies, with an assurance that he'll continue to call it.
As for Clarkson. He's a perpetual offender against players and officials alike. No case to answer accordingt to the AFL.

Similar to AFL in so many ways. We're the team that "kept hanging around"

Despite hit out dominance, we get smashed in clearances, in the air, and i50. Familiar story.

A good game from most AFL players. George, Carroll (great delivery), Motlop, tall Durdin in particular. Vossy was no doubt taking notes!

Great news that Jack Martin gets through on managed minutes and looked comfortable running post game. Wouldn't be surprised if he's in next week. BTW I hope we don't get complacent v NM and take our lessons from the last 2 games.

We've lost the intensity, which now appears in glimpses. Perhaps it's just our time for a lull and we'll pick up at the right time of the year. It's a long season.

Feel for Crippa. He and a handful of others can hold their head high.
Unfortunately, too few wins around ball and deplorable pressure i50. Too many to's and fumbles. Allowed oppo to run in waves and we couldn't stop them. Left our defence to pick up the slack, which it didn't. Too much left to too few.

I don't want to bag our players but quite a few had shockers. Making lots of changes is unlikely to be the answer - as we're seeing atm. Perhaps our early long injury list is playing a role. It inadvertently puts pressure on the fit players.

Time for Ed Curnow to stoke up the fire. We've lost the fire we had earlier. We've become the hunted again.
