AFL Round 12 – Collingwood Vs Carlton


So ends the (all-too-short) winning streak. This was the first loss that i watched on (free-to-air) TV as well. I can’t believe we were up by 25 points mid-way through the third quarter and looked home and ended up 30 points behind at the end..  Brendan Fevola proves how much of a dickhead he is again and looks to have takedn the Top Penalty-Milker award from Matthew Lloyd as well.  Carlton had the run of the whistle, that’s for sure.. I’m still wondering how Brad Fisher was pushed in the back in a marking contest in the goal-square without a player touching him. or how Paul Medhurst pushed an opponent in the back when he was facing him, again in the goal-square. these is just two examples of a litany of bungles… and now the perennial cellar-dwellers are in the bloody 8!!

  • at the 237th meeting the Blues beat Collingwood for the 122nd time – they’ve lost 111 times, and the two have drawn on four occasions in 1914, 1923, 1964 and 1972
  • Carlton kicked 8.4-52 in the last quarter for the first time since 2001-R21, appropriately against Collingwood in a 68-point win at the MCG – it’s the fourth occasion Carlton have kicked 8.4 in Q4 versus the Pies; others in 1971 and 1975
  • For the first time in 4 years, Carlton have done the double against their old foes, Collingwood, winning both games in the home and away season
    It was in fact the 27th time they have completed this feat…
    1904, 1906, 1907, 1908, 1910, 1915, 1916 (x3), 1917, 1921, 1932, 1941, 1956, 1961, 1968, 1975, 1978, 1980, 1982, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2004, 2008
  • Collingwood on the other hand have done the double over Carlton only 20 times, but did so in the last two seasons.
    1897, 1898, 1899, 1901, 1902, 1905, 1913, 1924, 1933, 1953, 1955, 1958, 1970, 1977, 1981, 1988, 1990, 2003, 2006, 2007
  • Carlton are in the top 8 for the first time since Round 1, 2007 (they were 5th). One has to go back to 2001 to the last time that the Blues were in the top section of the ladder in the second half of the season – when they finished 5th.
