Much has been made of Collingwood's woes in front of goal this season.

But perhaps this depicts the worst of it.

Collingwood slumped to another loss against Carlton on Saturday, kicking just 8.8 (56) for the game.

It marks the seventh game in a row Collingwood has failed to score more goals than behinds this season.

That's right: Collingwood haven't managed more goals than behinds in a single game at all this year, kicking a grand total of 75.96 (546) for the year.

Every other club in the league has managed to do it at least twice.

Adelaide so far leads the way, kicking straight in six of their seven matches this season.
