  1. Probably like a lot here, I could see something was off in about the first minute or so. The previous WCE game we were playing on at almost all costs from the start of the game, the first chance we had to do so we stopped and went back over the mark. Our game plan was seemingly different. I don't believe we actually changed the game plan but it was the players who got completely spooked. It was something I expected to happen more in the first final than the third but it happened. Whilst I believe we are stronger mentally than we were at the start of the year, we still aren't strong enough. We need some more outside run but what I think we need more of is a better connection with the forward line. For the number of inside 50s we had this year we should have scored a hell of a lot more and this would have resulted in more wins in itself. Either working on the disconnect with the forward line or getting players who make the correct decision going forward should be our priority (we need both though). Overall though, I am a pessimist with us and us expected nothing from us this year so to win two finals was good and have my kids finally get to experience a final was good. We could be anything next year but having been beaten down by the club over the years there is part of me that says the players will be too mentally scared and will go backwards next year. We shall see but I hope to be wrong.

    GAMEDAY - Preliminary Final vs Eagles

    True. This is the type of loss that could scar us for the next few years. I actually thought we would be close to unbeatable next year, I worry about us making the top 10 now.

    GAMEDAY - Preliminary Final vs Eagles

    I don’t know why people are having a go at the umpires. I’ve never in my life seen a team [censored] themselves in every aspect of the game. You would actually think we were trying to throw the game it is that bad.

    Alex Neal-Bullen

    On the couch last night showed him as rated #6 in the AFL for the season for pressure acts and #2 over the last 6 weeks I think it was, whilst it would be nice if his finishing was a little better, with that stat, I can't see him dropped anytime soon.

    M54-1? Me too, pretty sure it is about the 50m line olympic stand.

    I did hear on SEN that they were going to stagger the club member sales later this afternoon, didn't say when though.

    Finals Tickets

    Also a quick tip for you - I was online first thing, got to the payment stage and it then said the page had expired and hadn't processed. I went to get the tickets again and it told me my allocation per barcode had been used. Then checked my order history and the tickets were there, as well as payment taken out of the credit card so if you get a similar message to me, check before going through the process again so you don't end up buying two lots, which I almost did!

    Why can't we play the G?

    We don't spread wide enough to defend. We seem to be happy to let teams play really wide coming out from defense and then when we finally twig that we need to man up, the opposition then switches it which then shows up our lack of speed in trying to cover this again. Has happened all year, you would think the coaching staff would do something about this but they don't seem to care. At least we apparently learn lots of things each week.

    Anyone notice that when we went to a straight 6 on 6 in our forward and backline we then went inside 50 much better. Especially when we won it out of the middle, when we were outnumbered as we were in the first half, they tend to run sideways out of the middle as opposed to straight out when it is one on one.
  10. I've watched him for the grassy knoll at Casey, hopefully this is the magic bullet he needs to succeed

    Changes v Fremantle

    Dockers with Fyfe out and their performance today will be keen to make amends. We will say that we are keen but just talk, don’t actually do.

    Round 15 Non MFC Games

    If you have foxtel or one of these newer tv's that lets you pause it, you could pause it to let the radio catch up.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    With that loss and seeing as we can’t beat any team with talent and with the run home for other clubs below us I can’t see us getting near the eight now.

    AFL 360 (30/5) - Riewoldt and Murphy

    I find it funny that when we used to stink it up, every time we lost it was never that we won, it was how the opposition had a bad day. Now that we have won a few, it is still that they were either bottom teams or lots of injuries. I kind of have to ask, especially the last 3 weeks, has it been that the opposition has been that bad or have we been that good? Is always an interesting question, no matter who smashes a team.
