I assume there were bigger margins within games we've come back from, but historically they didn't track that, unless reported on at the time.

Is there a record for longest running autopsy thread?
Afltables' score progression data only starts in 2001, unfortunately. So anything of note is also etched into the memories of people here. You’re right though, notable comebacks would have been reported on.

Might be a good project to spend some of this downtime on Trove.

Surprised this game isn't spoken about more on here. Everyone remember's Swanny bodying JMac late in the game but this was up there with the Adelaide 2013 game as a complete a capitulation we've had under Scott.
Essendon last year was as excruciating as any of them.

The Jmac contest would have been so hilarious had he not been a North player.

Crocker was coaching that day against Collingwood.

We had beaten West Coast the week before in Hobart and Brad was watching from the confines of his couch after back surgery.
Apparently this loss allowed him to see what changes he needed to make to the team yet we still went up the Gold Coast and got belted🤦🏻‍♂️
He introduced Turner and Garner back into the side off the back of that for more forward pressure and we hit September in top form.

Brad was a terrible coach when you look at that 2014-16 team and how it underachieved, I mean the fickle nature and mental ethos of the side was f’ed.
Not having Wells in 2015 was the killer.

Well if anyone wants to relive Rd2 2013, the Hun has a rundown of the game today.

That game has a bizarre stat line. Tackles, contested possessions and uncontested possessions are all equal. We had 18 more hit outs, 15 more clearances, 59 more kicks and 50 more marks. Yet the Cats had 30 more inside 50s. Did we have a game plan in which we purposefully conceded forward entries? That's starting to ring a bell now.

True that it shows there is no conspiracy. But it also shows a high level of incompetence and inconsistency, which is just as bad.
A conspiracy is worse than incompetence.

The Pittard ‘trip’ was a big miss too.

But that holding the ball on half back to Jones they missed was a shocker too.

Missed both ways.

I don’t think we get a great run for a few reasons. But I think every supporters for every club thinks the same thing.

Watched the first half again.
Jeez - Jmac and Dumont were good when others were down to keep us in it.

Overall, we weren’t as bad as I felt we were when I watched it first time. We had some good patches, but weren’t clean and didn’t take chances.

Still, the Saints were good first half. Have to give them that. They didn’t take their chances though. Butler not kicking the distance... twice!, the Atley HTB miss, Kent, Membrey. They left the door open...

Then they crumbled and we took our chances. And **** me it is great to watch again!

Did anyone pick up what Taz said to the umpire (muffled, but mic gets it) after King got his 2nd ‘free kick’ and goal?

I swear I heard say something like ‘can I get a lemon, lime and bitters with that too?’

Or something like that...
