The north shore isn’t all bad
Get over yourself, free kicks or not, Bulldogs outplayed you in the Grand Final. You had like what outside of that hot patch late in the second quarter? 6 goals for 3 and a half quarters? Bulldogs inefficiency attacking is all that kept it close on the scoreboard. You and your mob keep convincing yourselves that you played better and was only robbed by free kicks. Love how even 3 years later you still have a chip on your shoulder.

Just looked up lateral ligament. Weeks to months recovery. Not nearly so bad as an acl. Maple said that coming off the ground and Naughts doesn’t look too upset on the bench so I think that is the good news for the day.

Can’t think of any other good news other than I couldn’t travel this time.

Can we not completely lose our s**t and start getting too negative? It’s not fair to how the boys have played second half. Cry like me over Naughts but GWS beat us fair and square. Too good. A couple of selection decisions haven’t caused this.

Didn't beat us fair and square mate. Not at all.
The holding off the ball was insane for the first half or so. Dirty campaigners looking to hurt people, also holding on after marks and free kicks like hasn't been seen for a very long time. They can can fu** right off. They did, however outclass us with their bottom 6 or so.

There have been a lot of passengers out there but JJ has been atrocious. Bunch of senior players missing in action today.

Most disappointing thing for me is the complete inability to play the type of football that got us here.

kind of got to give credit to GWS for bashing us into submission. You can't run and gun if youre constantly getting pummeled.

Yep, youngest team in it. Midfield was poor today but maybe this is the kick up the arse it needed. Could be our 2015.
I was thinking the same thing. Our elimination final in 2015 proved to be the best thing that ever happened to us. We got real finals experience into our young players.

Our midfield and leaders got outplayed today, simple as that. Had a feeling we would get thumped today. Will be a good learning curve and we've given about 10-11 players a taste of finals football. Pretty much what our midfield has done to teams recently, have gotten a taste of their own medicine today.

Good to see English take the duel vs Mumford today. Otherwise not much stand outs today. Been efficient when we attack, but hardly been inside our 50 all game.
