I have never gone so far as to actually start a topic before despite spending my 10+ years of membership wasting too much of my workday reading Demonland. I was so happy last night, i thought i would take a chance.
I would have to say that they seem a bit upset at Port Adelaide over yesterdays game and if anyone thinks Simon Goodwin receives a pasting on this site, they should take note of the Port vitriol directed at Ken Hinkley.
A few comments from Big Footy are repeated below and these are some of the gentler ones.
Also, when did Alex Neal Bullen turn into an untackleable beast? fu** me dead, we couldn't stop him. I thought he was a spud.
I think people really underestimated Melbourne coming into this. They have a very strong defence and an absolutely monstrous midfield.
It is staggering that we are so poor in every area. Poorly skilled. Dumb decisions. Not strong enough. Not tall enough. Not fast enough. Unfit. No discernible game plan. sh*t leadership. What the f**k do we actually do at training? I refuse to believe that our players (well most of them anyway) are at the limit of their potential. So we need a clear out of the leadership at the club - chairman, coach and captain. We're just so poorly led at every level.
Another club waltzes in with a SeAsOn-DeFiNiNg win.
Now that the siren has gone I can safely say, insipid performance and a disgusting display of football. Forwards invisible, the only time I did see them was when they crashed into each other. Umps were no help, gave Melbourne a couple. Sure am thrilled to have played Melbourne into form. We ******* suck, sack ken, sack Bassett, fu** it sack Voss too. Gang sh*t we out.
Melbourne are good, we aren’t.
Can’t see Melbourne not winning the flag now tbh
Who's going to want a 200cm third tall with no presence, can't kick and floats around the field like a fern frond with no impact.
Edit: and yes I realise this also describes Ben brown, but he kicked 10 in an afl match.
And to think we were out coached by Goodwin.
That game exposed all of our weaknesses at once. Biggest of which is our gameplan which relies on the other team not being very good.
Too many passengers and credit too melbourne who played the game I wanted us to play.
actually looked like our mids and forwards were rubbish. deep defense kept the gap closer. the rest were sh*t. boak sh*t. drew sh*t. everyone forward of full back was dog sh*t.
At least Ben Brown didn’t kick 10 goals. That’s a positive I guess.
yeah, so you agree, rozzee is sh*t, has the contested ball awareness of a minature poodle.
Players: What's the gameplan this week Ken?
Ken: Oh, we'll chip it around giving Melbourne time to get everyone behind the ball.
Players: So same as usual against the top teams then?
We put the ken in Farken Average.
I'm sick of crap teams going past us - if the trend continues, bloody Carlton will play in a grand final before we will LOL.
Melb brought in the tallest slowest forward line I’ve seen in the past 20 years of football. It was set up for us to run off of them.
Almost all of their good players had a night out too. Gawn, Patracca, Oliver, May, Salem, McDonald, you know the guys a good coach would have plans for. Hinkley is a bum.
