Ok Pies, you can go home now.
No way the Eagles are getting close, even if you're not there.

Eagles, please play like this when you meet Freo next. kthxbai

Think this year 7th and 8th get cut off and just make it a top 6. Can’t believe talk of a wildcard weekend where 9th - 10th get a chance as well.
This year we're like North in 2016. Hold onto 8th for dear life and then get thumped in the first week of finals.

If this is indeed the game plan that the Eagles are being asked to play, what then does it say about the onfield group, a group that has largely won a flag together and has a heap of experience, that they can’t look around at what is happening and change their approach.

how you could just put the blame on the coach after what this group has dished up today is beyond me

Because it has happened a number of times this year already. Simpson doesn't change anything and expects different results - he is a putrid afl coach

I don’t have any leaning to either of these teams but I actually seriously feel for Eagles fans watching this. This is utterly ******* abysmal
Each to their own but I haven't felt less invested in a WC season for a long time. Which is weird when you consider we are 10-8 and still a chance of finishing 5th or 6th.

The same team that almost beat WB in Melbourne then played Port off the park with a half of footy turns in 'efforts' like this on the reg. I know we've had a lot of injuries but we showed more in the first half of the season than we have since players started coming back. We play a one dimensional, one way brand of footy and have no plan B. We kick backwards and sideways, move the ball slowly, have no overlap run, make fundamental errors under no pressure, we're last in tackles and last in uncontested possessions conceded...

Easy from the cheap seats but we look like a team that is easy to play against and easy to coach against.

Because it is the 5th or 6th time this season... which says it is the coaching. The coach could instruct them to play a different way, drop senior players who aren't playing how he wants, etc.

They are playing how Simpsons wants.

You wait... we will hear about disposal issues, "things are never as bad as they seem, and not as good as they seem in wins", etc. and no-one of consequence gets dropped.

Well since you can't really sack all the players, so perhaps have to sack the coach. More than a few times this year the Eagles performance has been flat out unacceptable. Do they have seven AA players out there today?

McGovern, Gaff, Kelly, Naitanui, Kennedy, Darling, Hurn and Sheppard are all out there. Think they have all been AA at one point at least? So that's 8. Simpson is a joke at this stage...
