Yes! Now the media can stop the over-the-top love fest for Brisbane. Lions leadership group beyond pathetic. Cripps was incredible, that second half had me out of my chair. Ed Curnow and Sam Walsh were massive too.

Brisbane up 40-3 against the worst team of the past three years. Absolutely inexcusable. And loss by 15.

I've always been against the Neale bashing because they guy hasn't done anything wrong except go to a different club, but of course he must be Satan for daring to do such a thing hey??

I have nothing against him, who can blame someone leaving a job for a pay rise and we got fairly compensated by Brisbane.

Right. So Neale leaves because he wants to be the main man, thinks Brisbane are ahead in the development. But yeah we should wish him well.
Not sure if you guys are aware of this but Neale has coaching ambitions after football and I assume like everyone else, he has seen the hawthorn machine pump out successful premiership winning coaches under the mentoring of Chris Fagan. I suspect this is one of the main reasons he moved to Brisbane.

Short term thinking in my opinion. As a coach you want to build loyalty in your player base, and you definitely don't want core players leaving. Difficult to ask that of players if it is not how you practiced during your career.

Carlton played with a lot of freedom today. Just looked like they went out and enjoyed themselves and played on natural instinct and flair. There’s something to be said for that.

This. All the Neale bashing is embarrassing and pathetic.
I see him like an ex-girlfriend or ex-wife.
After the initial bitterness I appreciate the good times we once shared.
I got this philosophy from Anthony Kiedis' biography, Scar Tissue.
I now have good relationships with any ex I am still in touch with.
All the best Lachie, except against us

Caretaker coaches doing alright! Seems there could be a bit of quality out there waiting for a head coaching gig.

*after quarter time

Think the coach just said at quarter time - "f*ck what you have learnt in the past 3 years, go get a kick"

Few people in here getting a bit precious. Yes Neale in person is a great man and did his best whilst he was at our club.

But football is a tribal game and he left us when we wanted him to stay for another club. A club he thinks is better than ours.

It’s only natural for some supporters to wish that the trade fails for Lachie.

I for one loved watching Curnow smash him in the second half. Bet he wishes he had Fyfe next to him!
