They have a go most weeks but there's 5 or 6, at least, who aren't up to it and the rebuild really hasn't started yet. Massive reliance on a 31 year old up front and the midfield has no stars.

The unwatchability was the shocking umpiring.

I saw 2 1/2 qtrs

Some Crows players want to move ball quickly which I like to see. Then others get the ball and they go into reverse, not all on same page.
It's like watching Geelong.
If the Crows are gonna lose by 10 goals then just go all out attack.
Yeah, the list is limited but I think positive game style will help.

Why does Crouch get slammed but Laird gets free pass?

I reckon Carlton have been pretty good this year, they've obviously improved. The game plan seems a bit simplistic, a bit hit and hope but with McKay and Curnow up forward it seems a decent plan. Their defence is quite creative but perhaps lacks that big defender with Gov the Jones replacement not on the field. In the ruck they rely heavily on Pittonet but they aren't the only side that relies heavily on a ruckman. Add to that they've got a decent midfield and Cripps is an absolute weapon. They are miles ahead of the Crows and it showed.

regards,

Dear me :lol: There was reverse camera footage shown during the broadcast which showed the 'hit' was around the collarbone region and Oliver made the most of it.
