Fair play to Brisbane. Better coached, better game plan, better effort, better intensity, better skills, better football brains. Better all over the ground and better in every position

It’s not the first time you’ve bad mouth this team.

Give it a rest. This is one of the most disappointing performances in our history, people aren't going to like it. And yes, I'm a member of the AFLW team and have been since inception.

Crows should feel bad because that was a sh*t effort by all concerned. Not taking away from a Brisbane side that came here with leg speed, clean skills and a clear plan on how to flog the Crows.

Good for you, so am I.

But this poster has been pretty negative vocally about this team for most of the year.

The other times would've been when we've been thrashed/performed poorly - but that doesn't mean I don't support them? There aren't very many positives to take out of today, we've been handed a big reality check for thinking we could just waltz into a home Grand Final and almost win by default.

Don't win many games when you average half a point per i50. Outplayed in most areas of the ground sadly. Bit of a muted atmosphere at the oval now.

Some people support in different ways. Some are eternal optimists, some are eternal pessimists and others are one or the other based on the performance/result. Regardless, they don't need to be belittled and have their passion questioned except where they are personally abusive. End of story.

Why don’t you say that instead of demanding the coaches head and declaring us disastrous, ffs? We made a grand final - our third in five years. We aren’t disastrous, we had a very poor day.

Yeah, because I've felt that we've been lacklustre for not insignificant parts of the season - especially compared to 2019 (where I had less to be critical about).

We had the Crows digital media person sitting directly in front of us. Was sad watching her just give up on editing the "we are 2021 premiers" graphic halfway through the last.

Posted as soon as Randall went down that it would be tough. Brisbane fantastic.

The Top 4-6 were really even this season, and 3 or 4 could've finished top. It would've been interesting to see how we would've gone in an away final. I think today might've been an indication.

2 flags from 3 GFs - onwards and upwards.

Couple of players are done after this I reckon.

Phillips, Metcalfe, Rajcic basically done. Foley out for the season with an ACL you'd think. Considine surely will not play again.

Need to replace them with speed and youth.

Varnhagen and Ponter need to get their bodies right. Very underdone.

Woodland needs a rocket. Not a team player.

Did someone use our forward strategy from 2020* of bombing the ball inside 50 whereas Brisbane's goal were from the rebound?
