Two men down for over a half - is there anything you would consider a valid excuse?  Just wondering.

Playing a better team would be one excuse i would find acceptable

We will NOT play finals and dont deserve to. This is supposed to be the easy part of our draw....... much more pain to come unfortunately

Wow,

I can't fathom the lack of 'support' on here.

how about I come to your work on Wednesday shatter your coworkers shoulder, and then break another ones ribs, all before lunch, and then Scream at you for not being 100% productive.

Couldnt disagree more

we have been weak under pressure and have no excuses

Whatever. I know it's straight after a heart breaking loss, but not many teams would even get into winning positions after losing their ruckman for most of the game. And both the teams it happened against are 5-0, so hardly against mug sides.

Injuries caught up with us, but our lack of defensive organisation really hurt us all game.  Unfortunately Jones is really struggling, his poor decision making was very evident tonight.  We created a lot of opportunities in the first three quarters which we couldn't capitalise on.  Fairly similar story to the last couple of weeks.

Geez bemoaning injuries and bad luck...again. We managed to get smashed by GWS at the MCG a couple of years ago when they didn't even have 18 players they could put on the ground.

As long as Tom McDonald is playing in our defence we will never win a final.

Of the key forwards you don't want to go to ground against, Jack R would have to be the worst. Tom got smoked tonight, on all fronts.

Only real negative tonight is that we should have been ten goals up at three quarter time.

It does excuse the fade out. Absolutely.

Abe, I reckon it does mate. I can't think of a time a team has been 2 down on the bench for a half and won. Let alone one of them the only ruckman in the side.

We simply ran out of legs. The boys were just buggered. 

I am far more concerned with how disorganised we were at stoppages, our lack of leadership cost us just as much as those injuries. We looked great in the first three quarters but fell off a cliff in the last in all areas

So, coach, what should we have done to adjust?  Keep in mind we're two men down, one of which means our second tall forward needs to play in the ruck which leaves us with one tall target to kick to.  Their ruckman is far taller which allows him first hand on the ball.  Go.

Wise ..really.

We had NO ruck,you SHOULD assign accordingly.. (like Filth did to win a flag ffs ) 

Wake up lad

That pretty much sums up my workplace. Will you throw coffee over me?

They had Cotchin over the back at every stoppage with no Melbourne player starting goal side of him. How about that for a start? 

I get it that it injuries and rotations killed us,but coaching was poor at the end.

The structure around stoppages is directly linked to the lack of rotations mate. The boys just couldn't get into position because they were shot.

Showed 3 or 4 good passages but went missing for long patches.

Clearly on one leg.

Jake Spencer - the only 105kg ruckman that could collide with an 80kg midfielder and come off second best. What a useless [censored]. 8 years clogging the list to do his shoulder week 2 when we need him.

Have another drink, Dan.

He was injured early, stuck it out and still gave us something.  Took some fantastic contested marks in the third term and was still able to contribute.

Yet another silly, panic button thread after a loss.

Nope, because I reckon you'd like it and make weird eye contact through the whole thing!
