Ill more than likely live to regret this post post game but whatever, wouldn't be surprised if we played our best footy in ages and kicked 100 points+ The dome is a magical place where dreams come true. 🌈
Yeah our forward press seems to work well at the dome vs other grounds that aren't Adelaide

Good:
Forward pressure excellent
Everyone contributed
Could relax from 10 minute mark of second quarter onwards

Bad:
Occasionally went hollywood with our ball use instead of taking easy options
TMac injury?

Fugly:
GC - Loved watching us finally put a team to the sword but they were seriously pathetic after quarter time, feel for Touk Miller who is an excellent player who doesn't roll over like the rest of his team

Good
Ball movement - more aggressive kicks and good overlap running gave us plenty of good looks at goal.

Intensity - had good pressure from the first bounce and held it until the last quarter. Frustrating because that sort of effort and aggression probably gets us over the line in the Collingwood, GWS and Hawks games.

They’re whipping boys, but I think that Neal-Bullen, Brayshaw and Brown played their roles quite well.

Bowey - solid debut.

Jackson - excellent first half.

Oliver - terrific and set up the game for us.

Conceding 1.4 after quarter time.

Bad
Viney - the first half in particular, selfish and stupid, trying to take on the world with ball in hand and jogging worse than a stoned Angus Brayshaw without it. Redeemed himself a little in the second half with a few neat touches.

Harmes - selfish and stupid from go to woe. Reckon that Sparrow and Jordon are quite limited footballers but have way better footy IQ than this idiot.

Fritsch - lazy and crap, would rather Weid back in.

Kicking 7.16 or some sh*t from halfway through the 2nd quarter. Diabolically bad.

Fugly
Gold Coast’s drop off. That was Neeld 2013 levels of bad.

Looking forward to getting a new fitness guru once Burgo leaves, won't win a cup without the ability to run out 4 quarters. Should have put an extra 40 on them but for our tired legs being unable to kick straight

Ugly: the AFL is very cash poor after another year destroyed by covid. The amount of money they've thrown into the sun's would come in handy for them now I imagine....

Goodwin was clearly outcoached in the last. Wouldn’t see a Clarko-led side putting in a sloppy performance like that.
