I think that sort of stuff went without saying. There was no glaring match ups that stood out tonight because we simply lost basically all of them. Dangerfield in the circumstances was magnificent, smith and Zac Guthrie and Duncan to an extent tried hard, the only forward who got anywhere near it was Hawkins and he was generally against 2-3 blokes. That was team wide mediocrity at its finest tonight and to me Scott looked pretty brokenHe was never challenged on the future anyway, and then they switch back to foxtel media out of Scott's earshot, and then it's all macho big calls 'too old, gameplan cant win finals' etc.
You and Scott are right that it is not the time for radical proclamations, but I do think he uses that as a wall to hide behind as well.
Good that he didn't rinse a particular player for example, but thought he could have said something like 'I thought Dangerfield played really well' and then say nothing else, so by omission express disappointment in the efforts of others.
