Dont want to get too cocky. Im just starting to feel a bit uneasy about this one. 

Same I remember playing this mob can't remember what year, late Bailey or early roos years and we needed to win to have a chance at finals and we turned in an all time inept stinker. Only matched by that last round to make finals performance against the pies.

That was 2016 second last round. Needed to win to have a mini-elimination final in the last round at Kardinia. Think Hogan missed a sitter or two. Got done by 100 pts the next week anyway. Ahhh the good old days!

How about 04? Needed to beat these barnburners at Princes Park to seal top 4 and didn't...

EDIT: Nope I'm thinking of the 2006 season. Lost to them in round 1 and then again later in the year.

Carlton won 3 games for the season. Two against Melbourne. We would've finished 4th had we won both. 

We would have dislodged Sydney from top 4 and faced WC in Perth.

That was the one we needed and we inexplicably dropped it.

From memory, Pagan created a Dad's Army list that year that had a really low ceiling. He got a decent year out of them in 2004 but they fell off a cliff in '05.

There you go, ANOTHER example! Always felt that 06 season could have been anything if we got top 4. That demolishing of the Dogs the week before was something else.

Yeah that's right, so many 'nearly men' on that list like Cory Mcgrath, Daniel Harford, Glenn Bowyer, Heath Scotland etc

That could be a bad omen. Carlton once tried to rebrand themselves as the Cockatoos in the 1930's!

Whilst I didn't know that, it hasn't stopped me from calling them a bunch of cox

We should comfortably dispose of Carlton and Brisbane. Nothing against those two. We are a top 4 side that needs to start getting real.

Agree 100%, if we don't then we're not winning the flag this year so doesn't matter where we finish anyway.

2006, Carlton won 3 games for the season - 2 of them against us at Docklands. Cost us top 4.

Edit should've kept reading this was covered above 🤣

Remember it well - top of the ladder after beating Hawks in round 18 then lost our last 4 games ☹️

Need to put these guys out of business. They just won their grand final, now it's real business time.

For what it is worth. Last week I presume a lot of people kept away from the footy because of the rain that was forecast.  It didn’t rain at all during the game. BOM in its hourly projections said it was going to rain (The icon symbols can be misinterpreted and therefore be misleading- the way I read it, if there is even a small chance of showers it will show up a ‘rain icon’ , if that makes sense). 
The app I used (Windy) draws on BOM data but interprets it differently- in my mind more realistically! It said the showers would be gone by 7pm and that is what happened.

Right now BOM says it should be raining where I live- and it isn’t and it hasn’t been! It indicates (the hourly forecast)  for Richmond for showers right now , all day and through to tomorrow night and through to Sunday!. My guess is that this is unlikely, sure there will be some showers but not all the time (therefore is somewhat misleading).  My app says there will be some showers this arvo and more importantly showers tomorrow from about 4 to 7pm and then dry. Obviously the forecast will change between now and then.

Why the long dribble you may ask? In short , BIG game tomorrow night, we need to OUTNUMBER Carlton supporters and show LOUD support for our boys. Surely the Cripps decision is incentive to turn up. I would urge you to spur some of your fair weathered friends to turn up. And if there happens to be some showers tomorrow night, keep in mind it is only falling water.

Also, keep in mind that no matter how loud you barrack at home, the boys can’t hear you. As always, not having a go at the elderly, Covid concerned, distance issued supporters.

One last thing. For those of us that turn up tomorrow night, just remember that you are not going to the opera, you are going to the footy- make some bloody noise!

their midfield depth will be a real concern for them, they can probably match us when they have the 3 big guns in there, but the moment they rotate we should have a clear advantage. 

I also think Gawn/Jackson will run Pit around which could be a huge challenge for him. 

I think we really need a statement win, you've got the Blues with their season on the line, i think we need to really put them to the sword

Jackson is going to spend a fair amount of time rucking against Silvagni. Luke simply has to have an impact tomorrow night.

Pittonet has a decent record against Gawn - but when we have Jackson as well it's a tough ask.  Kinda surprised they don't pay De Konig.  Haven't seen much of them but I remember him torching Sydney earlier this year with his contested marking.

Is it a matter of with McKay and Curnow they can't really afford to rest immobile rucks forward?  If that's the case, if Jackson leaves is De Konig a player we should be sounding out?  Or did I just see his greatest game?

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
