    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I’m not too worried about that. Isn’t he still in a moon boot? What’s the point of being out on the track?

    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    You realise he was an Adelaide supporter as a kid? Even I would have worn a freo scarf to that game rather than barrack for Hawthorn.

    My 3 word end of season player analysis

    Good summary although a bit harsh on Weid.

    Brownlow Medal 2018

    How did Gawn get no votes against the Saints just then? Absolutely bizarre.

    Post Match Discussion - Preliminary Final

    I honestly wonder if we would have done better in a night game? The heat really took it out of us early. Friday night was the logical time slot for us giving everyone 7 day breaks after the semi-final, but the AFL preferred the TV ratings.

    Post Match Discussion - Preliminary Final

    I think from looking at the team stats, it was simply two things that let us down. 1. Work rate of the midfielders 2. Our spike in deadly turnovers resulting in scores (>10 goals) 1. Eagles took 96 unconstested marks. You can’t tackle a bloke when it’s not in a contest so they kept the ball off us after they won the contested ball. Pies only let them take 69 uncontested marks. Workrate 2. Contested Possesions - 158 to 145. Already been spoken about. Workrate 3. Low tackle numbers (34) - because of the Eagles flicking it around the ground. Most teams get low tackle numbers against the Eagles. But ours was horrendous. Workrate 4. Forward 50 efficiency- 69% vs 43%. No pressure on the ball carrier due to the Eagles uncontested style from the lack of work rate from midfielders. Plus our key defenders got killed. Turnovers plus workrate 5. Lost the clearances (40-32) we’re supposed to be the best at that. Workrate

    Say what you want, I’m proud of this club this year.

    I still can’t understand how we lost the contested ball so easily? It’s our bread and butter and we beat them with their same midfield group in rnd 22. Is it just not turning up? Was it the tackle pressure?

    I’ll be quoting that on Twitter when he doesn’t take a mark on Barass next week

    My 3 word player analysis V West Coast

    @joeboy Might as well do a season one for each player given it was our last game.

    My optimism for 2019 just went down the toilet. Before this game I thought, no matter the result, we’ve got a huge few years ahead of us. But this result hit me for 6. So many gaps in this playing group.

    That’s light on Frost. Him and Omac were horrible in the first quarter.

    GAMEDAY - Preliminary Final vs Eagles

    I feel sorry for all those fans who have travelled to Perth and those at Fed square. an absolute pathetic display.

    The Other Preliminary Final

    Nup, the Pies aren’t that good. They took it up to West Coast but couldn’t get the job done. They almost lost to a Giants team who didn’t show up until the second qtr plus DeGoey put on a masterclass. They played a Richmond team who couldn’t get going at all and Cox played his best game in 10 weeks. If we get through tomorrow, I fancy our chances much more than if the results were reversed tonight.
