    (From game day thread)

    I've harped on it before but our forward structure has consistently looked at its best when we play a ruck/fwd in there - whether that's Sav or Buzza doesn't bother me too much because its a structural thing.

    When we just have Tommy it doesn't work half as well, and the fact that we were pushing him into the ruck and up the ground then leaving no real marking targets i50 is just one of the symptoms.

    Zach Guthrie, Gregson, Parsons, Stanley need to be in our VFL team or we lose

    Can't have Kolo in the team either if he's going to do stuff like that

    McCarthy, Parsons and Gregson combined for 2 tackles they offer nothing in attack and don’t even defend

    Won the clearances, inside 50s, and contested possessions. Unfortunately the forward line just wasn't good enough, and Richmond's was far more dangerous.

    Kept up with them until the last 10-15 minutes. Menzel would have made a big difference.

    No credit to Richmond as I cant stand them and would be happy if they were shit for the next 1000 years.

    Would someone please explain why Hawkins spent so much time on the bench?

    I felt bad for him with the shank.

    He's mentally tough enough to bounce back IMO.

    Meh.
    Complete lack of a forwardline outside of Hawkins and a midfield who could only bomb, bomb and bomb some more and they only get passed us due to terrible, as per usual, umpiring and some bullshit front running.
    We need Selwood, Menzel and likely Taylor back ASAP.
    Parsons, Linc and Zuthrie should NEVER play again but if Cook ensures we have sub 10 game players in every game then we are ******, and he should be sacked, that's as close to internal sabotage as it can get.

    Was a decent performance. Remember still have Menzel, Henderson, Taylor, Cocky and Guthrie to come back. Menzel will be huge when he is back.

    I’m feeling positive. If we play the tigers again with those 5 in the team, especially Menzel, I will feel a lot more confident!

    But Guthrie and Gregson have to go out.

    Our INS after the bye are looking very promising.

    Outs: ZGuthrie, Gregson, Parsons, Linc
    Ins: Taylor, Menzel, Cocky, Guthrie and I have no idea who comes out for Henderson

    Our small forwards just crumbled under Rich pressure, thankfully we still have Menzel and Cocky (if he can stay fit) to come back later in the year.

    Just wasn’t our game for the forward line, hopefully we can re group over the break and have some luck in the second half of the year.

    Gregson, Parsons and Guthrie are just not good enough for AFL at the moment. We need Cocky’s pressure, Menz’s goals and Taylor’s experience to have any chance against top sides. Going to be tough from here with Adelaide and Sydney games interstate.

    Great effort. Just carrying a couple too many smalls who either aren't up to it or not ready just yet. Stanley dominated which was fantastic. Captain huge again.

    Gregson and Parsons can join him. Gregson until he can learn to keep his feet. Yes was a wet day but he has consistently lost his footing at key moments this year.

    Same shit different season. You can't win games by wilting under pressure and missing targets.

    I'm assuming you didn't watch the game, Stanley was in our votes.
