It seems the Demons players are incapable of holding the ball!
Playing like the dogs of 2016 where they turn their back to the tackle, drop the ball at their feet or effectively shepherd the tackle while their team mate takes it out of their arms.

Clever.

Freo look to be jogging. Controlled the ball once that quarter for a inside fifty.

Grrrr, come on Freo, this is not a mid-season fixture of total nothingness - this is an elimination final!

Our low skill, fast breaking game style (chaos ball) has been found out by teams dropping back a defender.

A classic example was about two minutes from the end when Houghton took possession on the far wing and did a handball over her shoulder into space and one of the Demons took it before Gabby,

Where the Demons are keeping care of the footy - we treat it like a hot potato.

The problem is that yes they are dropping back a defender but how are they evening the numbers in their forward line too? Wheres our spare player? Other teams have gotten better over the past 2 years and we have stagnated.

If we win today its from our top players standing up when it counts, which is looking unlikely right now

And twice they score with a kick over the top - why are we not dropping someone back?

pathetic and disappointing end to the season, is it a coaching issue? i.e. no plan b

same players that were winning, seems like structure and coaching to me, can't read the game and season and make appropriate changes
