Get your head out of the sand – Saturday night confirms at least one of the following to be true.
The Carlton Football Club has provided the AFL world with so much entertainment in the last decade or so, and not in a good way.

There’s never any shortage of overreaction when things go well Greater Western Sydney. We all know how immense the talent is on their list and the power they’ll be when things click for good.
Just when you think you’ve seen it all in football, something you never thought possible makes headlines.

Match result: The West Coast Eagles have returned to the winners list, beating the Collingwood Magpies by 62 points at Domain Stadium.
115 Have your say
Match result: The Blues recorded their second consecutive win after defeating the Bombers in a scrappy game at the MCG. We probably had one of the worst halves of football in the first half as the strong swirly wind combined with very poorly executed skills saw a goalless second quarter.
Match result: The Sydney Swans have escaped with a 3-point win over the Brisbane Lions on Sunday. It really was a top effort by a young Lions team to get so close to a star-studded Sydney Swans lineup.
101 Have your say
Match result: Port Adelaide have claimed an important win and moved to a 3-3 record with a 35-point victory over Richmond on Saturday night.
Match result: The Cats recorded the largest victory of the season with their 120 point drubbing of a disappointing but undermanned Suns team.
Match result: Most will see this as an incredible upset, but from the opening minutes of this match it simply looked like one very good side effectively demolishing a much less accomplished team.
110 Have your say
Match result: The Adelaide Crows have jumped into the Top 8 with a 33-point victory over the Fremantle Dockers at Adelaide Oval.
Match result: In a much-hyped clash at Etihad Stadium today, the St. Kilda Saints have made it 13 in a row over the disappointing Melbourne Demons.
