I knew we would lose this. 

Flat track bullies. 

McDonald and Jetta the only players deserving of a paycheck today. 

Lack of leadership the most disappointing. 

Lever going down will probably cost us a top 4 finish. Maybe even a top 8 finish when you look at the draw.

This was the team that ended our finals hopes in Round 23 last season, and we let them walk all over us.

Our players are all talk, once again.

We couldn’t take the heat

No excuses

We must improve

Cannot deny that today was a huge disappointment.  Big game, big crowd and big stakes at play... and we failed to show up.  It's not good enough from many of the players out there today, and no doubt over the break they'll take a good, hard at look at what went wrong today.  Our clearance work, for the second game in a row, was very poor and our want to run hard both ways fell away at crucial times.  Too often we had quick kicks forward that just landed in their laps, and then they were away.

But it's not the end of the world.  Seriously, it isn't.  I know this thread will be filled to the brim with over the top statements, people slamming players, questioning Goodwin and so forth.  But before you slam your keyboard, consider this:

If you were told we would be 8-4 at the bye, would you have taken it?  Of course you would have.  It's okay to have bumps in the road as we won't win every week.  It just won't happen.  And so what if we're taking a little extra time to get there?  Just because we may not win the flag this year is no reason why we aren't in prime position for a tilt over the next 3-4 seasons.  And last time I checked we're still right in the eight and in a fantastic position to make some waves in September.

We've fallen over a few times and we have things we need to address, but really, this is only a small stumbling block for the club.  We have already shown the ability to get better and change the way we play - the previous 6 weeks are a testament to that.  And I'd rather have a game like this now than later in the year.

Hopefully the boys take stock of where they are at today and do all they can to improve upon it over the second half of the season.

Petracca needs a kick in the but. Just runs around and gets his constant 15 touches. Vince is a shadow of himself. I have been proved wrong re Pedo. ..nothing to add. Smith out of depth. Saprgo one touch in the second half. Still missing Vineys old form. Hasnt done much but hasnt played much. The big factor today was 4 players on fire of late in Hogan...Melksham...ANB and Gus were MIA.

 

Tmac and oliver and Jetta very good as usual.

Thought we were  a contender for a while at least.

How does a team leading the comp for clearances get smashed by 20 two weeks in a row .

Very disappointed. Pies run n spread was impressive,  totally outplayed today.

0/4 against good sides this year, and flogged in every one we've played since Round 1. I have some massive doubts over our gameplan now. I thought we were going down the right road with our contested focus but we've been smashed in that area against good sides.

Flat as a tack right now.
