Game Review

The less said about this game from Carlton's perspective the better - history may show that something good came of it, but nothing even half positive for the Blues would emanate from our biggest loss since the horror days of 2003, and our 6th 10 goal smashing for the year. The Blues were smashed, cracked and thwacked across the field, with the hard running Lions dominant and Lion key forward Jonathan Brown kicking 10 goals to break his, and the Bears/Lions, goal kicking record.

Gary Fila umpired his 3rd game of AFL football and in the last 4 weeks he has been at all of Carlton games (he was the emergency field umpire in Sydney last week). His first League games was Round 13 at Subiaco when one of his first decisions was the double 50 metres infringement against Fevola.

In the immediate wash-up the the game, Coach Denis Pagan was sacked as Coach of the Carlton Football Club.
