Game ReviewAfter a positive opening, this game saw one way traffic for 3 quarters as the Blues were obliterated at the MCG. Time and time again the Demons got 'one in the open' and launched forward from defence, with a forward on his own 30 metres out. The Blues were at rock bottom.
What made it worse was the partial return of Marc Murphy, again injuring his foot as the Blues injury list lengthened.
Man-mountain Patrick Cripps was again out beacon of hope in this disastrous season.
This match was the CARLTON RESPECTS round and the team wore orange socks.
