Owies tried to do the right thing but had poor execution.
LOB slapped the ball forward into space which is what you would do if you are 1 point behind not in front.

The only thing Setterfield did the other nite was improve his trade value/potential.

He did some okay things but wasn't as big an influence on the match as some of the media analysts are trying to suggest.

When the Demons needed a key play at crucial times in the match, Oliver was well involved every time, granted he is a very difficult player to quell for a full 100-mins.       
That's how I saw it, Oliver and Petracca stepped up when the big moments were happening and still had some impact.
Setterfield played well though and was generally reliable with the ball which hasn't been his forte imho.

So many what ifs.....but was it the right decision to play 4 "tall" defenders against Melbourne who really only had Brown and one of the ruckmen forward? Having Newman injured didn't help but to see someone like Melksham kick 4 goals infuriates. Was there a role for Plowman or has his form been such that he just didn't deserve a game?

In fact, our overly "tall" backline was very close in size to Melbourne's forwards.  Plowman and Marchbank (who are the same size) can play on taller or smaller opponents so I don't think we would have gained anything by swapping those two.  Our only other possibility was Kemp - just a smidegeon smaller than Plowman and Marchbank - and I think he could have been a good match up with Melksham.  Kemp's not really in great form in the magoos.  On top of that, Melksham had few touches and five goals from his last four games and you aren't really going to expect him to play his best game since he kicked five against four years ago.

While Doc was a good contributor in the midfield, he was missed in defence.  Newnes, as our seventh defender, loses his opponent too often and Stocker isn't yet as reliable as he should be.

I wonder if David King has watched the replay yet?

With three minutes to go we had an extra two players behind the ball.  That's why Gawn didn't have an opponent when he kicked inside 50 for Melksham to mark (in a two on four contest).

King and Montagna said we didn't do a lot wrong.

I found two other things. Poorly positioned when Melksham marked against 4 Blues, should never happen, and 3 blokes spoiling each other on wing. A mark there rather than knocking it out of bounds and that would be more time off the clock.

That last 2 minutes will be one of the great learning experiences this club will have going forward.

Three guys flying for the one ball is something we have had a real problem with all year, especially in the forward line.  Almost always means no mark, and at least one extra defender on the ground to clean up.
This is now the longest premiership drought in the history of the Carlton Football Club - more evidence of climate change?

Did I hear correctly that kosi Pickett got fined for rough conduct at the tribunal?

Apparently for the tackle on Liam Stocker which was paid holding the ball and consequently a goal...

Holy mackerel... doesn't that just amplify the disconnect between the umps and match review dudes!!! Just as well that free kick wasn't important  ::)  ::)  ::)
