Skills really let us down, it was like we had 2 options. Kick it aimlessly forward or try to break away from faster opponents. When a team actually learns to hit a short target or lead inside 50 they will dominate this competition.

Hopefully we can return the favour in the final.

Just didn't make the most of our dominant 2nd quarter... which is critical against the best teams to make the most of momentum.

Even though we lost enjoyed the contest.

Need to take our set shots.

And stop that Lions player who created her own two goals from nothing. She was the difference.

Unpopular I'm sure, but I thought the umpires did everything possible to keep us in that.
poor all round, but thought we had the rub by a long way. What is with this 5m kicks being payed as marks?

They looked very Sydney Swans tonight, and we looked very Adelaide Crows.

Reasonably outcoached I reckon. Was obvious to all and sundry they would flood our F50 and sprint to goal, yet we kept bombing it in. Also does Kellie Gibson give a really good mackay impression, even does the little steps when manning the mark. Unfortunatly that game of hers was a 100% perfect impression.

Norwood, Canadiens, Maroons.
Brisbane wont want to watch the replay. They were flogged accross the park but the umpires gifted them goals. Empty win. Crows should send replay to AFL and demand wtf was that!
I thought the umpires had Crows jumpers on under their shirts myself.

Fundamental coaching error in third quarter when we kicked that goal to go 8 points up, didn't get all players push back into defence to stop any chance of brisbane getting a late one. I know we should have had a free kick back in he centre, but we didn't. Had to play to the whistle.

Should have put the score on the board in the second and didn't. Too many nothing shots at goal.
That bump after the goal should have resulted in another free kick and a goal to us. Would have been a momentum crusher for Brisbane.
We can still take out the flag here.

Indeed. The umpiring was almost as damaging to Adelaide as a player playing on from a set shot 20m in front onto a left foot they don't have.
So rather than acknowledge the fact the umpiring was shit, you wanna be one of those smart arse pricks about player mistakes. Well i up your one player mistake to the 4 shit decisions made in one quarter along with at least one blatantly obvious free that wasnt paid. See i can be a smart arse too. In case you cant count thats 5 umpiring mistakes to 1 player mistake.
As far as the rest of the game went, the umpires just guessed for both sides.
Anyway well done to the crows girls. Work on skills as much as possible will help no end. Brisbane certainly have us done in the skills department.

Go watch the game again and see how many soft ones we got.
Geez I must have been watching a different game.
