2018 Rd 2: Post Game Prattle: Carlton vs Gold Coast
« on: March 30, 2018, 11:04:23 AM »
Last week's party was a wake, even though we did show some decent signs.
I hate that. Richmond lost last night because Adelaide were that bit more mature and could respond better when challenged. That is what I want us to be: able to respond when challenged.

Richmond is also know for their fanatic pressure. That is another thing I want us to be known for.

So this week, the winner is ...

Football!

Good things to come out of Rnd 2, the media are proven right again, KPFs are dead!

Thankfully it's straight back to work Monday and I can forget about it. Doh!

PS; And this weekend we get an extra hour!

PS PS; Wow, that game was so bad it killed this forum!

We stunk. Hard to see us winning many games with a bunch of spindly kids who can't tackle. Fumbles, missed kicks and little leadership.

I'm baffled. Where is this club going?

Weitering...stays back (Marchbank/ Weitering -CHB FB)
Jones...roving back /follower (he's too loose to play one on one but he does provide contest and effort)
Casboult forward...not to ruck...to be replaced by McKay or Kerr sooner rather than later.
Persist with Silvagni
If Kreuzer's not available Lobbe or Phillips must come in.

Bolton's honeymoon is over.

If a Carlton player handed out a front on bump like Bowes did on Weitering they'd be calling for a report, in fact he'd probably be reported on the spot!

Bowes left the ground and elbowed Weitering in the face front on!

We'll probably get fined for putting a concussed player back on the ground, that's the way it rolls for us!

If Caddy gets a week for a shizen spoil, what does Bowes get for doing a Jack Ziebell?

Well that was disgraceful. Everything went wrong - Kreuzer out, poor team selection, no intensity, appalling disposal matched only by our ability to fumble on the occasions disposals went to the target and bad umpiring.

I wasn't expecting a flag in 2018 but we played like the u12's today with our kick and hope strategy and everyone on the ball tactics. Skills weren't much better either.

Where was the attacking brand we were told was coming?

It doesn't necessarily mean he can't turn it around...but he doesn't get the free pass anymore.

We better start the Rnd 3 Pre-game thread.

I'm tipping there will be 90+ at that game, and I'm not talking thousands!

McKay had a good one with the NB's today as did Silvagni. Whoever's there of the two, Levi or Harry, has to help Kreuzer ruck though. Levi's rucking has improved alot, as he showed last week, but he is still a back up forward/ruck. Whoever had the dumb idea to let him be the only ruck needs shooting.

Still, with the lack of workrate, urgency, effort, which leads to poor skills, the ruck was the least of our problems. Have all those other aspects right like last week and you'd barely notice getting smashed in the ruck.

Given it's the 3rd year that's the most disappointing loss since Bolton took over as we now, rightly. expect so much more.

I know that's what worries me so much, we make progress, we fark up, we start sacking dudes , and we start again. Sounds like St Kilda..... :-X

It's early, I'm just full of angst. I just want to see progress that's all.

The two most disappointing things for me were:
1. Poor effort (at least to me it looked poor);
2. Senior Players Impact.
Thoughts on the above?

Yes, Bolts has to learn we expect alot more now. Not necessarily the 8, just alot more.
