We definitely were flat-footed. A lot. So often lead to the ball or totally reactive to another Geelong player open in space.I think it’s pointless going into the weeds and dissecting every player.
The whole team was as flat as a pancake. How often do you see so many guys just get run down. Not making any excuses as Geelong showed why they are where they are on the ladder, but Tas to a Thursday game with the travel and disruption that goes along with that was more than telling for me.
Experience would really help with the giddiness of coming off a defining win in Tassie, returning after 3 weeks away from home and backing up after a 5-day break to boot.
Battle-hardened Geelong has that experience in spades with only one of that suite of disruptors to contend with.
It's really easy to get smacked in the AFL with a small combination of factors swinging one way and also to the other.
