AFL Round 4 – Carlton Vs Collingwood

Damn, Damn, Damn… we had a chance to put Carlton in the record books as the longest losing streak in AFL history as well as increase their streak of having 100 points kicked against them. of course, in true Collingwood style, we choked…

Every few weeks, we have one of these games, umpiring decisions appear to go against us, the players forget that man-on-man defence will stop tempo footy and that kicking to a one-on-three contest in the forward fifty is not a direct avenue to goal…

One thing i noticed, it still doesn’t look like Judd is playing too much team footy. He still tends to deliver the ball to where players "should be", not where they are going to be… there were a lot of kicks that were just out of reach or over the head of the leading players.  Maybe I’m just dirty because he didn’t come to Collingwood…
