Hunter a lot lower than I expected. I thought he had a pretty solid year.
Disappointed of course but I just think they looked exhausted. Maybe a few were still nursing sore heads from Mad Monday.Congrats to Bont, Macrae and Libba for podium finishes. Well deserved. Everyone in the top ten had great years and deserve their spots. I can't really begrudge any of those placings.
One takeaway I noticed is genuinely how disappointed the playing group looked. Despite our very good season, a season that in all honesty exceeded the expectations of most, they clearly all look so disappointed. I'm thinking (maybe hoping) this is a great sign. Of course they'd be hurting, but it's great to see this reflected by their body language.
We can only hope this disappointment and emptiness they all seem to have leads us to bigger and better things in 2022.
I'm not quite ready to welcome 2022 yet. I'm going to enjoy the break. I'm thinking the players, coaches and support staff will enjoy a break too before refocusing on the 2022 campaign with the aim of going one step better.
