What this game said to me ...tigers won the premiership with a very soft draw & an injury free list ...take one player out of their side ...Dustin Martin....& they are gone !!! Also apply that to Essendon & remove Daniher & the same scenario occurs ...I am not going to mention the name of the player that Melb  could ill afford to lose ...(he is very tall), however very confident we cover all other positions ...Go Dees 

I thought the Tigers were quite good after a very slow start, they have an around the ground manic game style where every player pushes up real hard. Talk after the game is quite a few players have been on heavily modified pre-seasons and they are very much aware the season is a marathon, not a sprint. I was hoping for the upset and obviously barracking for the underdog - Blues just failed to play 100 minutes of football but a few of their kids look very talented.  

Huge crowd, I did not see the final number but the noise early was massive - the game of AFL football is in great shape.

Bt is a poor commentator.

Roaming Brian is easily the most cringeworthy addition to post game commentary in the entire fuggin universe!

Roaming Brian makes me laugh just watching the people in the background trying to avoid him.

Taylor and Darcy are soooo cringeworthy, I subscribed to Foxtel in part to avoid hearing and seeing them (and to watch all demon games).  

Could no longer stand their banal commentary, fake excitement and hero worship.

What, you weren't fascinated to see a close up of Dusty's shoe? They say if you touch it, it immediately heals all groin or hamstring injuries you may have. (But it also has the terrible power to curse. If used unwisely, it can revoke your relatives' travel visas.)

(When I say "they", I mean "Bruce")

The commentary showed that the announcers have not lifted their game. Every year, teams, players try to improve, but commentators never seem to even try. Bruce is back to his best "horse race calling" style. Hey Bruce ... we can see for ourselves that so-and-so just kicked it. As for Roaming Brian ... god help us.

Daisy the only one who seems to put time in preparing.

The scoreline flattered Carlton. Inside 50s 71 to 47 and they had 16 more scoring shots. Carlton had an orgasmic start to the game which you won't see very often and Richmond looked a little off color. Yet Carlton are the ones being praised ???????

Definitely!  Seven of their goals from Frees/50m penalties courtesy of the 'rule of the week' enforcing the protection zone. 

They have certainly improved and are playing a more attacking game style but will still be at the lower end of the ladder.  They don't have enough goal kickers nor back up talls if Kruezer goes out injured for a while.

Having said that they can build a really good team around C. Curnow, Cripps, Dow and Weitering - it will take a few more years.

Correct. Richmond’s kicking for goal in the first 3 quarters was atrocious. 

Carlscum are improving

Tigers have a very specific game style, credit must go to Carlton coaching staff they did their “homework” it took Tigers coaching staff time to make adjustments to get game back on their terms - then it was only stupid mistakes partly related to fatigue that kept Blues in game. You could see Tigers were quite “lazy” off the ball - but OMG when the ball is in their zone they step up 3 gears. 

I should add don’t worry the Tigers are beatable - we are going to get them their weaknesses are exploitable. 

Go Dees

Begs belief we drafted Weiderman over Curnow. Another blunder right there

Another blunder?

We've nailed drafting in recent years, and yes Curnow is a great player, but Weids is not done and dusted. He is a key position player in his third pre-season battling injuries. Chill out!

While they played well and the media are happy to talk them up, the Blues are still a long, long way off.  Their depth is minimal and an injury to someone like Cripps means their midfield is painfully shallow.  Same goes for their forward line - Curnow looks good, but if he has an injury?  They have no reliable coverage and would struggle to kick 10 goals a game.

The Tigers had a hangover for roughly 15 minutes and then it was business as usual.

Dusty pushing people out of marking contests with 2 hands.  When was that ever legal??

Was clear as daylight and the Fox commentators never uttered a word. 1. It's Richmond and 2. It's Dusty. Umpires really need to watch this. I won't hold my breath.

Cripps’ disposal and decision making let’s him down. 

Hah. And the Sun Herald gave him "best on ground".

He was up there for sure but my point still stands. His disposal is below average and on more than a few occasions last night he handballed to teammates who were tackled straight away.

They are already watching. Martin has his own set of rules. 

If any other player does it they are pinged!

Betts, Jenkins and McGovern is a decent fwd line
