Because we got our fitness terribly wrong and teams knew they could outwork us as we were exhausted.

Wrong in what way though THBT??

My gut feel tells me they MIGHT have gone too hard too early (built them up to a mad level of top end fitness) leaving many spent by the time we got to round 12ish.

Goodwin's poor player management in the second half of the season exacerbated this overkill pre-season prepping.

Big emphasis on 'might have' and pure speculation on my behalf.

Agreed, though it’s infuriating. If Sydney somehow don’t win, then this years premier must be considered extremely weak. Even Geelong are a bog average team away from home at GMHBA. This is excruciating watching this as we know we’ve wasted a year of our window. Our best would absolutely demonlish these two teams. Losing to Brisbane at home last week was one of the worst losses in decades IMO.

Don’t understand this thinking. This years premiers will be as deserving as anyone. We need to get our heads out of the sand with that view that our best is unbeatable. Well, guess what, we were very beatable this year. Geelong are strangling Brisbane, and I will guarantee you, they will not give Brisbane a sniff from here. Unlike us.

Another goal from a friggin free to Geelong. Game over. 
EDIT Hawkins choke.  

The only way I will credit the sheet the Dee's played in the finals ( mega choke) is that Hawkins wouldn't have kicked any more goals against May than Buddy did.

Why do Geelong have sequinned shorts on? Are they going to do a cabaret number at half time?

The embarrassing fact isn't fantasies about how bad Geelong and Brisbane are..its how bad the Dee's are for not winning

Well hopefully Fagan can recreate his magic at half time like last week. 

But gee watching Geelong they are just free everywhere and watching them kick it into there forward line where they spread and not have 3 talls all jump for it.

But I fear this game is going to turn boring. I think the queens coffin watching will be more interesting.

As predicted Cats to win how they like. They'll either choose to cruise home or smash them by 10 goals, just depends what mood they're in.

Gives them a run up start against the Pies or Swans who will likely smash each other for four quarters

😄 makes a great commander.

She's still saying how stupid we were playing LJ for the second half of the season.  Reckons it was like giving a pay rise to an employee who's told you they're finishing up at the end of the year.

Said he wasn't committed to the club and that's how he played on match days.  Should have gotten games into other player/s.

    RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the Demons are to win their Round 3 encounter with the Sydney Swans this week, then the frustration of last Friday night’s uncharacteristic performance against the Brisbane Lions cannot be allowed to live in the collective heads of the players.   What made the mediocrity of the first three and a half quarters of the encounter with the Lions so uncharacteristic was that it defied every aspect of the impressive months of preparation for the season the players underwent along with the

    FLAG DEFENCE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons unfurled their 2022 premiership flag early on Saturday afternoon at Casey Fields and commenced their campaign to earn the honour of back to back champions in 2023. They did so emphatically beating Footscray by 37 points in a contest they dominated throughout and, but for some wayward kicking for goal early in the piece, they could have determined the issue a lot earlier in the day than during the final term when the Dogs finally hit the wall. The Demons were forced to make

    DARK NIGHT by George On The Outer

    A pleasant, balmy Brisbane evening with perfect conditions for football turned into a bleak, dark night in more ways than one for the Demons on Friday night at the Gabba. Coming up against a Lions outfit which had been truly cut to shreds by Port Adelaide the previous week, with the Demons having accounted for the Dogs emphatically, it was reasonable for the droves of Melbourne supporters to expect to witness more pain being inflicted as payback for their loss to the same team in the previo
