Game Chat – Carlton v Port Adelaide

Written by Thommo on June 20 2015

After so much pre-season hype it has been difficult to lower our expectations of Port Adelaide. Is it time to simply admit that Port just aren’t as good as we thought?

Whether they are premiership contenders or not, Port need to defeat Carlton to keep in touch with the top 8. Last month that was easy but as we saw in their close loss to Adelaide two weeks ago, Carlton are no longer easy-beats. With the return of Gibbs and Yarran the Blues may well push Port all the way.

Thommo’s tip: Port by 12 points.

  2. Hey guys quick question:
    I have 17 playing players this week
    If I have 6 playing forwards and I bring in Steele or another forward as a 7th and have them as emergency, will they count as my 18th player? or will I only have 17 that count?
    Cheers guys!

  5. Robbie Gray just stretchered off after hitting his head on the ground from a Gibbs sling tackle! Looks like his day is done..

  6. Damn you Gibbs! Took out a promising VC score from Gray. Would it be a stretch to say it was a deliberate ‘taking out’ of a key player?

  10. Touched by the hand of god?

    A disastrous decision to give Carlton the win.

    Still, all good for me with Docherty’s match saving mark probably worth 30 sc points.

  12. Just woke after a nice long nap but I had the weirdest dream. My captain Robbie Gray went off concussed at half time and Port lost after some very dodgy umpire decisions. Thank God it was only a dream.

    Hang on, what the…..
