On cue one of the few players who’s looked switched on kicks a Cats goal

GCS keep doing the stupid short kicks and hand passes to risky spots and failing.

Maybe the occasional 60m roost will put pressure on Geelong.

If their execution was better I think it might have actually worked to a degree but it’s been ordinary

Nevertheless its a very good win for Geelong. Emphatic on the scoreboard.

Good to see Stengle having a very good year.

I just posted on the cats board that it worries me a bit if we get to a comfortable but not insurmountable lead in finals against better sides and they try and close the game down for 10-15 minutes, flood back - we need to stop ALWAYS looking for a teammate and just take the shot

And another 12m kick to a Geelong opponent in their F50.

Awful.

As soon as Dew was re-signed the entire team stopped trying.

Disappointing performance from the suns. Accurate goal kicking preventing what develop into a 100 point loss.

Did the Suns re-sign Dew too soon? Another very disappointing end to the season.

Nah.

It sounds odd given how one sided this game has been but even tonight I’ve seen enough. Their execution has been awful but there’s enough to work with

It's turned into a total dead rubber but you're right, it's good practice to not fall into bad habits. I like the way they are going with the quick handball off half back after a mark. They keep the game moving fast and can put together dangerous attacking chains.

Geelong up by 50 in the 4th and Selwood still drops his knees for frees. :drunk:

I'm saying yes. They've been very ordinary since R14 or so. Had they kept him waiting there would've been the hunger to finish the season properly - plus Clarkson was on the market so there wasn't really the risk of pulling a Voss for Leppa style move. And I don't think Clarko's the type to go down the Mick Malthouse path either.

Instead, they've gone 2-6 and were very lucky to win those two games (although I guess three of those losses were very close - but two of them were games they threw away).
