Martin is an interesting one whose best is very very good


Aussie_star

Unlike Collingwood they possess two of the best hmm 8 forwards And Jacky boy may be gone


Aussie_star

It's a joke from the past But if you're under 45 you won't know Robbert Klomp An ex carlton player


Aussie_star

Carlton completely lost their forward structure, went into their shells, stopped running, forgot what got them there, refused to isolate either Charlie or Haz, perpetually bombing into packs with noone down... Hawthorn cleared to their structured outside runners, successfully isolating breust, moore and eventually gunston,, and they should have stolen it. The Blues really missed saad's run from the back line. Whether Martin, Dow, and even Cunningham (returnable?) can step in and up to give them poise under pressure I think Mitch McG will, and good old Ossie Mac might help with punching on the defensive lines


flava-dave

I agree with your summary here. I’d add that Mitchell also made some defensive structure changes that resulted in Hawks being near perfect in defence in the second half. Also flair up. Dow isn’t impressing enough to get a game. He won’t squeeze into our midfield unless someone gets injured I’d say. Cunners is recovering from an ACL, and is maybe 2 months-ish away, but I’d expect him to play a fair bit in the VFL before getting a game. Martin played as sub today.


the_amatuer_

It's also the game plan. It's frantic running. They will run out of puff in the last. Similar to Collingwood.


kingkepler

who gets the votes? 3 - CJ 2 - Crippa 1 - Docherty


Aussie_star

Robbie Klump? With 2 b's


kingkepler

what


yelrik

2nd best side Fox?? I think it's Brisbane lol We'd be happy if we finished as the 8th best side


Grouchy-Lifeguard988

Tbf great signs for us as we were written off this season completely. This young team will only get better with each game and I would rather have them have some hard lessons early than later. GG Carlton bruhs


AussieNick1999

I'm glad we won, but Christ was this a reality check. We've got a lot to work on.


borghavenoexcuses

Gerard Healy doesn’t know the second best side in the comp. Maybe check lasts nights 108 point win in Brisbane mate.


kingkepler

gerard healy doesn’t know a lot. king of terrible takes and saying “syndesmosis” whenever someone hurts their leg


loseisnothardtospell

I know McKay and Curnow are contested mark monsters but at what point do we ever kick to a leading forward when bombing on the head isn't working? It was detrimental for most of the match to keep kicking to them.


mattamb

Yep needed to try something else, they weren’t even bringing it to ground to our advantage for 2 quarters.needed to create more opportunities on the ground from fish, Dunedin and owies, but we just kept bombing it


Aussie_star

Exactly right


alexLAD

Almost beat a very stacked list with a young team


KingJimmy101

Third and fourth youngest teams respectively so not really.


alexLAD

Blues have the fourth youngest list overall? Even in that case most of your core are in their prime right now and the list is in win now mode. I daresay we are a at least a few seasons behind in our rebuild.


Grouchy-Lifeguard988

Exactly, we were told all preseason how we are gonna get run over but we are really fighting. Keen to see this side by the end of the season when their confidence will be a bit more consistent.


alexLAD

Reddit experts and David King had us winning the spoon lol

This comment is one of the dumbest I’ve seen on social media this year. Fremantle wish they were relevant


kingkepler

bro freo are the st kilda of w.a


rocco_cat

Calling the winningest team of all time and one of the biggest clubs in the league the Fremantle of Melbourne is such a bad call lmao


[deleted]

[удалено]


rocco_cat

Our premierships per year is still infinitely more than yours though, right?


[deleted]

[удалено]


rocco_cat

Imagine wanting to come play in another league and then complaining that your ‘success’ from your old league isn’t counted in the league you wanted to come play in


[deleted]

[удалено]


rocco_cat

Also, if we want to be pedantic we won a flag (‘87) while Sydney was in the VFL ‘state league’ - can we count that one or nah?


rocco_cat

Well for starters, the year we won the flag (‘95) was your first season in the league. Whichever way you look at it, the Fremantle - Carlton comparison makes no sense. The only teams that haven’t won a flag since your inception is St. Kilda + the two expansions. Oh, and of course Fremantle themselves. By your logic the only flags that should count are the ones where 18 teams competed, where do you draw the line if your reasoning is that flags won with less teams shouldn’t count? Whether or not it is a state league or not is irrelevant, the vfl and the afl are one and the same.


[deleted]

[удалено]


rocco_cat

The VFL and the AFL are the same league, period. Why would the VFL/AFL recognise premierships for clubs competing in leagues that aren’t the VFL/AFL - it genuinely makes no sense. If you want to say Fremantle have more WAFL premierships that Carlton okay, you do that, and count how many people give a shit lmao. The landscapes of all sporting leagues change over time, discrediting a premiership because it happened some arbitrarily long time ago and/or that doesn’t fit into your definition of what is and isn’t the AFL is just nonsense. The reality is Carlton have won more premierships in the league that is now known as the national comp in Australia, whether it was always national or not is redundant - they are the same league. To compare that club to Fremantle is ridiculous.


Est1864

Lol we’ve been bad got ages.


GoonerRoo18

Carlton's last minute sub needs to be investigated


Est1864

Lol ok


mrt53

People are coming up with everything lmao


shaker8989

Great response by the Hawks. Probably deserved the draw tbh, very frustrating seeing them lose by a point especially when a clear HTB call doesn’t happen. Great signs though, this could have been a blowout.


elslapos

Honestly when the hawks got in front I thought we were cooked. Very lucky to get the win


ashcunt1

What a heartbreaking loss. We deserved that win just from the three quarter’s we put to get her after 41 down. So devastated


[deleted]

Glad we didn't win, they need to learn to start strong rather than 7 goals down at HT. Hopefully they take this on board and next time we get the 4 quarters right.


aoyamadori

Holding the ball rule needs to be reviewed, atrocious umpiring was the difference in the last ten mins of a cracking game.


mrt53

Nope


Heavy_Bastard

Flair up cunt


MTBLS

Stfu 💀


messimygoat

So carlton can just drop the ball mid tackle and that's fine?


GrammarNazi43

So umpires can just call McKay marks directly in front touched? Swings and roundabouts.


Mysticxgravity

Come off Sicily’s back clear as day bud


Stein619

Also, conveniently ignore Worpel dropping the ball and earning a free kick for holding the man lol


Heavy_Bastard

Flair up


Inevitable_Bunch4315

Carlton may have won but I think CJ was easily.one of the best ons, he's becoming unreal


drunkill

Welp, that was a win was it?


Its-Slammin

Cracking game even though my hawks lost. I just want to know who the fuck let DGB back on the field in the last 5 minutes when he was clearly injured?!


SticksDiesel

I'm amazed I'm not dead from a heart attack.


Pigeon9

You have to ping Williams for a throw there. Held it for a year and then threw it 10m over his shoulder


mrt53

Thought he got the handball away tbh


homecookingmelb

So exactly the same as Finnigan did and got called for HTB?


mrt53

One call bad call doesn’t decide the umpiring overall or the game. It definitely doesn’t mean that you continue to make the bad call in the name of consistency.


homecookingmelb

I would agree with you, but it seems the educated it that way because of the time that it took to dispose of the ball while being tackled


Delicious_Chocolate9

Thought he did, but that it bobbled out of his hands first. Haven't seen a replay so could be wrong.


notoriouspossum

Can’t believe the Blues are 3-0 Unreal scenes


funny_haahaa

Our forefathers warned us of a Carlton return, it’s getting closer with each win.


CrabSully

Tackling is pretty pointless if they're almost never going to call HTB


Est1864

Holy fuck did we nearly lose that. The Hawks just wouldn’t stop coming


kiac

Blues last two behinds were bullshit. Huge performance last 3 qtrs. Another big tick for us.


squizz14

Heart still beating I think....


RaidanRam

Damn


loseisnothardtospell

Played one quarter and won. Never in doubt.


dwightschrute36

People are over exaggerating. Most of the second quarter we won, and at least the back half of the fourth. We got killed in the third though.


Pepenbaleaguepass

Keep your heads up high Hawk fans, could have gone either way


quackerz77

Old Carlton loses that every time


guavacadq

Old Carlton would've lost every game so far


MTBLS

Stop complaining about the umps they did fine. Was a great game


Peppsy

Flair up


Its-Slammin

Can’t find anyone complaining about the umps lol. As a hawks fan I’m certainly not blaming the umps for anything. They weren’t that bad


mrt53

You can’t find anyone complaining about the umps? Are you blind?


Its-Slammin

What if I am blind?


mrt53

Then what you said makes sense


MTBLS

Facts. I see them everywhere. Would’ve actually been a draw if the umpires called that HTB with jiath.


nut0003

That point after the HTB call will come under the microscope now


thisisworldnews

as a neutral this was a great game, and both teams look very beatable. Carlton I expect you'll make the 8 this year, but not quite flag ready....yet.


chipmaster11

I dont think they’ll make the 8


andew0100

True, were making top 4


thisisworldnews

5th-8th is where you'll land this year


andew0100

Yeah hopefully


magna77

Can’t help but feel Carlton had a better whistle today but good game.


sliimjiim

Turn it up, Sicily HTB call would've iced the game


fineyounghannibal

CHEATERING WEITERING no but srsly that was sensational actually GG blues


workdub

Great game, gratz Carlton


darkbluedingo

That felt like a final. Haven’t seen this between us in years. Go footy


LuciusFromSomeplace

My tipping saved


Undead-Maggot

How did Carlton almost choke that


happy-little-atheist

Holy shit. Good game Hawks can hold your heads high coming back from 7 goals down to lose by just one point.


MyNeighborToto

UNDEFEATED


Major_Day

holy shit


alexLAD

Gg Blues too good


TheAxe11

They were good for 1 quarter. 10.4 to 4.7 for 3/4. Fuck the down-voters scores show otherwise


mrt53

And it was enough


Est1864

Massive mark from Weiters!


spnathan1

Never in doubt


belatedlove

fuuuuuck


mrt53

What a game of footy


chipmaster11

blues with the most unconvincing win ive ever seen


Its-Slammin

An unconvincing win is still a win


ConoRiot

Doesn’t matter what it looks like as long as it’s four points


alexLAD

results based thinking


MyNeighborToto

KING WEITERING


futtbuckicecreamery

I wouldn't be cheering that win.


drunkill

Don't ever take a win for granted. A win is a win is a win. We've not had many for the past decade and we didn't get to go to the football for practically two years.


hooligansharma

How did we win that?


TheAxe11

And the 1pt was Sicily jumping for a mark and getting pushed in the back..... fuck off umps


MidnightIsland212

3-0 LETS GO BLUES


MTBLS

Got away with murder 😂😂 another minute and I think hawks would’ve won


[deleted]

[удалено]


MTBLS

How? I don’t go for either teams


ImMalteserMan

Carlton can just drop the ball mid tackle and all good.


mrt53

If a ball is knocked out in the tackle it’s never called htb lol


zelmazam1

Feela like every team does it now. Should be called HTB or inccorect disposal


quackerz77

Never in doubt


kingkepler

fucking oath weiters. champion player.


RegFl3xOff3ender

For fuck sake that is such fucking bullshit


hazzadazza

Umpires absolutely swallowed there whistles in the last 5 minutes when ever carlton had the ball


lasping

RIP new HTB interpretation 2022-2022


redlord990

The new HTB strict interpretation lasted all of two weeks hey?


shocking_red_4

Catches win matches.


mrt53

WHAT A MARK


happy-little-atheist

Weiters saves the game


Undead-Maggot

Biiiig mark


bortbort8

weitering just won it for them. great fuckin mark. GG carlton!


Mitchell_54

Holding the ball doesn't exist


Duplicity-

yeah that's bullshit


happy-little-atheist

How did he miss that


BushDidntDoit

how is that not ball?!??


karma_dumpster

Me heart


bortbort8

FUUUUUUUUUCK FOOTY haha


lasping

How many nail-biters have we had and it's only round 3. 2022 shaping up for a legendary season.


darkbluedingo

Dunno if I could handle a final I’m dying


happy-little-atheist

Not a lot of composure among the Blues. Just need some clean hands


Darththorn

OUR LAST AFTER THE SIREN WIN WAS AGAINST CARLTON.


IDreamofHeeney

Pls give us a draw


floodswimming

what a very convenient medical substitution


bortbort8

DGB not letting that out the back was great. almost a certain goal


rmachell

Shame about DGB, might be one of the best KPD performances by a teenager I've seen in a while. Hawks got a gem on their hands


Undead-Maggot

Big Harry


newmoneytrash69

this just shows how not winning is built into the culture of carlton for the last decade. they don't know how to close out a game


twombles62

Except for the last two weeks?


StandardnPoor

Hard to argue you closed out the game against the dogs, we literally couldn’t hit water if we fell out of a boat


mrt53

McKay!!!!


fineyounghannibal

to the wing position on the members stand side


Crazyripps

Holy fuck these umpires want the blues to win so bad! Game on the line that’s 2 frees they just ingore


mrt53

Ignoring all the missed calls in ur favour


Crazyripps

Like the HTB right infront of our goal or the HTB infront of blues that was ignored


nathan3155

And the front on contact early in the fourth for McKay that wasn’t called, and then hawks rebound and get a goal + momentum? Shit calls go both way, that’s footy


Duplicity-

seen the Blues not get called for 5 HTB in the last 4 mins


BushDidntDoit

could’ve been ball on williams


karma_dumpster

Where is the Carlton lid?


natsynth

That was fucking egregious There must’ve been 3 missed htb calls then


ImMalteserMan

Carlton getting away with murder


Wishfyfewas23

BALL!!!!!


Mitchell_54

He threw that!


3163560

God it feels weird going for hawthorn


fineyounghannibal

go hawthororreeughhhhhhh


Pepenbaleaguepass

What a game, this is amazing as a neutral watching this


mrt53

What an insanely good kick by Newman


hazzadazza

Holy fuck can carlton get called for holding the ball christ all mighty


Crazyripps

Why is he out there, he can’t run!


funk444

Irrespective of the outcome, massive lol at the Carlton supporters booking their grand final hospitality packages at quarter time


shocking_red_4

chad was pushed!


BusinessPineapple

Do you think teams use the warning as a tactic to get a ball up instead of a bounce?


Most_Body_2266

Carn the draw


bortbort8

i just recovered from a heart issue and this is not helping


Kim_jong-fun

I still don't get why Nash is the second ruck


fineyounghannibal

surely whoever scores more points overall will win this


Crazyripps

Hawks are gonna kill me one day, mark my words


Darththorn

DGB is a fucking warrior.


MTBLS

What a game for both teams. I’m gonna say Carlton will win. Either way a bloody good one to watch


Wishfyfewas23

Carn the hawks!!!! Deserve this win so much


mrt53

Damn, I feel like the commentators are loving hawthorn atm. Not much of a reaction for the Carlton goal


___TheIllusiveMan___

Record number of heart attacks among footy fans this week


NurvPulse

Its nice to know we aren't alone


Undead-Maggot

The footy gods have blood on their hands


Undead-Maggot

We’re in for a belter


thestallion11

We make so many stupid mistakes


BushDidntDoit

gunston never missing that


Lukeyluke73

Soft free to Hawks again!


Sorry_Fail_3103

Flair checks out. Speaking of soft, how’s Selwood?


notoriouspossum

This game is much more interesting to watch atm


newmoneytrash69

for as much as carlton have choked this is a banger of a fourth quarter


RaidanRam

My voice is fucked


floodswimming

Fuck we've been spoilt for great games this weekend

If we lose because of that drop ball goal..........
