I thought Fox people said shin. Not wishing ill on anyone but hope he misses next week.

I haven't seen any of the Saints vs Brisbane game aside from the final margin. If anyone was watching, how did the Lions look?

Bears were okay in patches

They have some seriously talented kids 

That is true. Poor disposal though.

Lions will shock a few times this year. Bookmark it.

St Kilda is uninspiring.

I don’t think it matters who we play anymore if we are not on our A game we will get beat, the comp is too tight now

Brisbane should’ve beaten the saints. The amount of forward 50 attacking/entry poor turnovers by the lions gave the saints the game. Apart from that we’re pretty good.

If Rich is out, that's a big plus for us. He didn't look real happy sitting on the pine. C'est la vie  !!!!

Brisbane looked good for 80% of the game.

Saints worked very hard to pull away towards the end and the score difference wasn't a true reflection of the game.

They won't be a push over next week.

Their starting midfield bullocks well but they lacked run from half back and their kids tire quickly each quarter.

I watch most of the game on TV so this may be flawed analysis but I thought they exhibited all the signs of a good young side - best and worst is miles apart

Like all young teams they have 10 to 15 minute patches where they lose concentration and switch off. We were very similar in 2016 and even for patches of 2017.

I think our ball movement will be far too slick for them next week. They don't move it quick enough either. Hipwood was hopeless too, which helped St Kilda's cause, while St Kilda's chipping game in defensive 50 helped Brisbane press early. I don't think we'll give Brisbane that ability.

They don’t fall asleep in a game for as long as we do nor do they take teams easy as we will. It’s not a danger game for us, we need to play out of our skins to get close to them

They were smashing St.Kilda in the stoppages for 3 quarters

How will everyone feel about our season when we are 0-2?

Wrist slashing time methinks.

On the contrary, we're probably a more suited team to being 0-2 than 2-0, Could wake us up a little and shape our attitude and determination to get back up the ladder. I'll settle for a win though :laugh:

Interesting, and probably correct.

I will try and take a positive approach. The Melb-Geel game was of a much higher standard than the saints-brissy game. Keep the pressure on them and they will turn it over much more than we do.

Ran rings around us last year at the G. A real danger match. Fagen has adoptated clarksons keepings off style which we struggle against.

Trouble is they don't have the skills to execute it properly yet.

Yes, that game cost us finals in my opinion.

We had a 5 goal lead and they came back and almost stole the game.  If we had maintained that lead or extended it we likely would not have had to worry about the Eagles catching us on % even after losing to the Pies.
