Melbourne 73 to 48 lost by 80 points lol

We have the biggest I50 differential so far in the round.

I'd like to know why we're fixing it again. Are the players goldfish?
Goodwin- " Remember how efficient we were against Geelong and Hawthorn in those wins last year?, no? well ill show you the tape"

David Misson- 'Inserts the tape from round 1 and 5'

Gawn- " Um goody...."

Goodwin- "Shutup Gawny, Im pretty sure this is right Misso is spot on with his numbers"

tbh that final against Geelong while a great moment, wasn't overly efficient either

Falling over, fumbling the ball, missed shots on goal, spilt marks, not sticking tackles, general shite skills.

Same as Round 1, awful start to the season. I’m almost hoping we lose to Essendon so I can switch off the year.

Here is some more great stats
Last year we only lost the contested ball stat twice all season we have already lost it twice this year.
Last year we were the 2nd most successful contested ball team of all time

Last year 17 teams lost after having 60 I50s, 5 of those occasions was Melbourne

At one stage we had 50 inside 50s for 3 goals, Geelong finished with 48 and kicked 20

At one point we had 32 inside 50s without a goal.

Eughhhhhhh. What a rancid performance. A
'Grats to Lockhart on the goal and debut. Oliver looked ok from what I saw. Gawn and Salem too, at times, but otherwise that was as **** a game I've seen us play in several years.

Turned off the TV. Weak, gutless, Neald. I blame everyone except Oliver, Gawn, Brayshaw. So many pretenders to name but let's go with TMac, Trac, Hunt, Goodwin, screw it most of the team. Just pathetic really, honestly I thought it was 2013, what is our game plan? We are all one dimensional it's not funny and they extended this bloke, wowee.

What a depressing stat. Reflects how our players had no composure with ball in hand, plus we make very bad decisions with disposal, plus there is no synchronicity amongst the forwards with their leads and knowing where each other are and where they’re running. In short, it’s a big mess and we’re a very ordinary football team. Oh and we should sack Troy Chaplin.
As a Port fan, can confirm that sacking Troy Chaplin took us from the worst period we've ever heard as a football club to a prelim final within two years. Sacking Troy Chaplin later led to Richmond immediately winning their first premiership since 1980. I highly recommend sacking Troy Chaplin, sacking Troy Chaplin offers proven results.

I know not everyone is an animal lover so skim this post if you don’t care, but my dog who I got 18 years ago as a little kid is getting put down on Monday and frankly I’d trade a year of beltings like tonight for one more year with him. Makes you remember it’s just a silly game and not to get too worried about it.

I just knew this year was going to be ****. Expectations means we crumble. Solid depth was let go. Superstar forward left. Injuries. Players underdone. Lack of pace. No plan to deal with new rules. TMac a one year wonder. Too much pressure on Weid.

Where are those posters who said it was just JLT when the signs were painfully obvious that we had major issues? This season so far has been Neeld like. I'm not going to bother watching next week. So.sick of this club..

Insane stat. Like how is this even possible? It’s like how I play pool. If you hit it hard enough it statistically has to eventually find a pocket.

We’re that good at being ****, we can’t even accidentally score?

Lockhart has something.
Oliver top 5 in comp
Jetta solid as always
Petracca needs to spend a while in the 2s and be made to really earn a recall. Wake up mate
Umpires were rancid.
Preseason is going to be costly
Lots of passengers
No coaching input was minimal
Rnd 2
Essendon next week.
Can't get anyworse.

Onwards and upwards.
Hopefully
that my friend is called for-shadowing, unless we lose to the bombers and end up 0 and 3
