Fumbles, no hard running, no tackling, poor skills, poor coaching, poor selection, no care.
Club feels a bit irrelevant after watching this.
Mackay? Why the **** is he playing?
Tex + Betts = should probably retire.
Jenkins.. is he playing?
Doedee injury just removes any enthusiasm for the season.
Murphy and Douglas not AFL standard.
Kelly just not AFL standard.
Gibbs. Useless today.
Talia not marking anything.
Atkins fumbling everything.
Smith no good.
Lynch playing frustrated.
The worst is that we basically went in with smalls in the 50, but bombed it in. It's like our coaches went "Yep, let's go small, everyone's doing it!" and left it at that. Utterly inept coaching overall, totally schooled by Clarkson who is an absolute master. The most stubborn, no-nonsense structure I've ever seen. We look like absolute fools against well coached teams.
Gutted for Doedee. No replacement for him, and we just forced Cheney in to retirement.
How quick things change. It's not over, but I suspect it will be a long season.
Fwd line is useless against a good defense. Jenkins+Walker hasnt ever worked.
Walker still captain - can we drop him?
Milera - Floating around doing nothing, had that shocking turnover.
Douglas - One of my favourites but its not looking good
Small forwards - Betts had a good preseason and should be okay, he's routinely uselss against the hawks. The others aren't looking promising in the near future.
Gibbs - Soft
Rory Sloane still our best player by so far its ridiculous.
