AFL from LA

https://youtu.be/yN9JxHrXx7Q What is with all these primetime games for Carlton? They've played eight so far this season and they've got six more. Really, AFL? Are you trying to ruin everybody's Friday and Saturday nights? Hi, and welcome back to AFL from LA. I'm your host, Cindye. I'm here at the world famous Paramount Studios on Melrose Avenue. Some of the most exciting games of this round came from teams outside of the eight. Geelong, GWS, Richmond, Suns, North Melbourne, even the Eagles! I, for one, would like to see more of these games broadcast at primetime. Anyway, here are my hot takes for Round 12.  Carlton v Melbourne The skills on display were pre-season level. Or is that insulting to pre-season? Melbourne should have kicked straight. They could have won by five goals, maybe even more, but of course they didn't. They kicked at 38% accuracy. Carlton's goal tallies from the last few weeks have been 8, 6, 7, and 8. And that's with two Coleman medalists on their team. Sure, Mckay kicked three, but did you see what happened when he tried to kick a drop punt? And that snap from 40 out? Enough already. There has to be a goal kicking camp, college, something. These guys are full-time professionals, they're getting paid big bucks, and they can't execute a basic skill of the game. And look, stop calling from Michael Voss's head. The Blues had talented lists under Teague, Bolton, Ratten, and Malthouse, and nothing was different. Maybe it's time to start pointing the finger someplace else.  Eagles v Collingwood The Eagles were in front for a glorious 4 minutes and 36 seconds! It was the closest 10 goal win I've ever seen. For two whole quarters, and with three players down, the Eagles had the better of the best team in the comp. Full credit to the Pies, though, they're number one for a reason and they did what they had to in the end. So the Pies are about to lose their star midfielder, dirty De Goey, who added another tattoo to his left arm: a permanent imprint of Elijah Hewett's face. His hit on the 18-year-old was disgraceful, but I gotta ask, where was the Eagle's response? Only a single player, Greg Clark, confronted De Goey. I shudder to think what a John Worsfold or Beau Waters would've done. De Goey would've been looking over his shoulder for the rest of the game. This is a real shame. Not only is Hewett concussed and is going to miss at least one game, but De Goey was playing career best football. He's cost himself a shot at the Brownlow and has compromised Collingwood's best 22. The only question now is: how many weeks will he be spending in Bali? GWS v Richmond Who said Richmond aren't supposed to win close games? And who said GWS will finish last? Talk about entertaining, that game was a ripper! I'm showing all of my American friends this one as an example of why AFL is the best game in the world. The Giants had an incredible 70 inside fifties compared to Richmond's 47. But their efficiency inside 50 was only at 47% compared to Richmond at 66%, thanks to Jack Riewoldt, who thought it was 2016 all over again, taking eight marks and kicking five goals. I mean, apart from one big loss to Collingwood, GWS has been the most competitive team outside the eight. Kingsley has them playing four quarter football, which is something they've never been able to do. They're clearly playing for him. And with all the youth coming up, I'm really excited. Orange beasts.  Western Bulldogs v Geelong The Bulldogs kicked straight. Straight to Tom Stewart, that is. All day. The Bulldogs won every stat against the Cats except for the one that counts the most, goal kicking. Inaccuracy, once again, cost a team a game. Jamarra and Naughton are both averaging less than two goals a game. And it seems they're always leading to a pocket or kicking from too far out. Is this a leading patterns thing or simply where the midfielders are delivering the ball? Either way, it's not holding up and it's not gonna hold up in ...
