That’s a really disappointing loss
5 goals up against a bruised and battered side coming back from Perth
I don’t mind losing but tonight hurts and yes they have a quality midfield but we still have some very good players out on the field and our skills and decision making were awful after that good first quarter
I wrote this before the game ended... by at least 3 minutes... but the game thread had ended...
We had our chances early once again we had a player come off so we couldn't end the game with a full group... this time though we knew he was unfit coming in so we can't hide that...
Let's just take the draft pick and move on. That would be my take from this game.
I thought I was angry, this board can't even make the end of a game before they are putting up the review of a loss. Stick it out, it hurts but that is why we are Hawthorn. Walking away before a game is poor. And unhawthorn like to be honest. Why you would turn your back on your team that early is well... I've got nothing. So I don't know what to say anymore about it. It's just poor. I'm guessing you are the same people that leave at 3/4 time at a Melbourne based game. Sorry never liked it.
They probably are. But it's marginal. Like it is between teams 5 and about 17 (Carlton suck on a level all there own). Adelaide are better and we beat them. Pies are better than Dockers. Tigers are better than North.... all comfortably more so than Brisbane are over us.
With that lead and their travel and shorter break we should be pretty damn disappointed with how we completely stopped and got smashed.
