58 unanswered points! We're mailing it in now though, as always. Our 4th quarters are shit.

Essendon's defense is baaaaaad. They can put up some serious points, but they'll only break even the way they're playing.

I got home and thought "hey, we got through Tulla so quickly that we'll be home in time for at least a full quarter of footy!" Turn on the telly to hear that Essendon were down by just seven at half-time and had been blown away in the third. Thanks for the welcome home, Bombers.

Also, holy shit, one of the Blues made a mark to rival Naitanui's screamer as mark of the year. That was epic.

Did they send out their under-13s or something?

The Andrew Walker mark in question:

‪Andrew Walker Mark of the Year HQ - Essendon v Carlton Round 18 2011‬‏ - YouTube

Unbelievable. Even better because the game was totally out of hand at that point and he had no reason to throw himself out there like that. I really hope this game is a sign that we do give a shit about finishing top 4; I haven't seen this kind of urgency from Carlton since we stomped Sydney.

Both Carlton/Richmond games were good times.

17 behinds, 7 goals, Eagles? Sydney would be proud.

One point win to the Eagles! And apparently Ballantyne hit the post after the siren!

That means that because Collingwood couldn't fucking win by 60 or more my multi went down. I got every other leg. Fuck!!!

At the risk of sounding biased, I don't think any of the marks taken this year are way ahead of the pack. Walker's was brilliant in how pure it was, Naitanui's and Pettard's were brilliant because of the chaos of the pack around them and the fact they were outstretched marks. And I don't think an ethnicity bonus will help Naitanui, since Walker is part aboriginal himself.

Ooooh I didn't know that. I think elevation is a huge factor though - remember Gary Moorcroft shitted it in a few years ago.

Jeez Eddie Betts was awesome last night and still Judd was clear best on.

Yeah, absolutely. Moorcroft's is my favourite mark of all time, it wasn't just beautiful to watch, it was unique and dangerous. I could watch that Essendonian mystique for hours.

Carlton are really building up some momentum. They definitely have the sheer talent to go all the way, but it'll be interesting to see where they end up no matter what.

Jesus our kicking is nasty. That will be our undoing.
