Jim Park Voting 2023 Elimination Final 1 Carlton vs Sydney

Voting is as usual: you have 15 votes to award pretty much as you will, with the following provisos:
[1] 15 votes in total, no more, no less.
[2] No more than 10 votes for any one player (even Sam Walsh or Patrick Cripps)
[3] Three players at least must get a mention.
[4] A grade for the game, A+ (what I want to see) to F-.
Live Long and Prosper!

AFL Elimination Final #1   Carlton vs Sydney at the MCG
I haven't voted early much this year: I've got into the habit of voting after I've seen a replay, and I don't always get to see one early. However, this week I'm going on his opinions from the night. I might even be able to get to sleep soon.
We won a final against a hard team that matches up on us well, without huge contributions from a number of important players.
Team:   B+
I can’t call it an A, as we couldn’t keep it up, and we struggled to play our style of game for much of the night.

Votes:
[2.5]   Sam Walsh
[2.5]   Blake Acres
[1.5]   Jacob Weitering
[1.5]   Adam Saad
[1]   Brodie Kemp
[1]   George Hewett
[1]   Adam Cerra
[1]   Matthew Cottrell
[0.5]   Sam Docherty
[0.5]   Nic Newman
[0.5]   Paddy Cripps
[0.5]   Tom de Koning
[0.5]   Marc Pittonet
[0.5]   Jack Martin

Explanations:
[2.5]   Sam Walsh:   Walsh had a phenomenal game, getting 29 possessions, 17 of which were contested, 6 tackles and 6 clearances. A top game.
[2.5]   Blake Acres:   Kicked a wonderful goal, stopped a couple of others and managed 26 possessions and 5 clearances. Probably his best game for us.
[1.5]   Jacob Weitering:   Dominated his position and took some brilliant marks.
[1.5]   Adam Saad:      Defended brilliantly and barely gave his man a touch.
[1]   Brodie Kemp:      A strong defensive game from Brodie
[1]   George Hewett:   Some really good things from George, even though eh fell down more than I’d like. 25 possessions, 5 tackles and 5 clearances.
[1]   Adam Cerra:      Not as consistent this week as he can be, but he did some really marvellous things that helped us win. 24 possessions, 7 tackles and 4 clearances.
[1]   Matthew Cottrell:   Matt’s first half was nothing short of brilliant: he was in everything, kicking goals and making goals. He dropped out of the game when we slowed up the way the ball came into the forward 50.
[0.5]   Sam Docherty:   Not a bad game from Doc; 21 possessions and 3 tackles, but he wasn’t as effective as he can be. He seemed a little slow and wasn’t as sure in the air as he usually is.
[0.5]   Nic Newman:      A very solid job in defence, as we’ve come to expect. However, he made some crucial turnovers tonight that were costly.
[0.5]   Paddy Cripps:      A very quiet start, but he work into the game and kicked a Captain’s goal when it was needed. Will be better for the run.
[0.5]   Tom de Koning:   Started slowly, but came into the game and took some decisive marks.
[0.5]   Marc Pittonet:      Isn’t oing to be dropped again anytime soon: 14 possessions and a couple of marks from the big bloke, and a lion hearted effort in the ruck.
[0.5]   Jack Martin:      Martin was pretty quiet up forward, but for his goals, but it was some clutch marking in the final term that stood out.

Honourable Mentions:
Charlie Curnow:      Down and fumbly early, but picked up his game late with some stunning marks. Too far out from goal, but his contribution was important when it mattered.
Caleb Marchbank:      Marchbank drifted out of the game somewhat and got out-marked a bit late, but he was very good early in the game. Took some very nice marks.
Mitch McGovern:      Not at his best, but he did a job really well.


Live Long and Prosper!

I reckon Acres needs to be in the conversation for player swap of the year.

His effort in the last with a sore shoulder to kick a 50 m barrel and then tackle Blakey from his own kick was nothing short of sensational.
This is now the longest premiership drought in the history of the Carlton Football Club - more evidence of climate change?
