You lot got a taste of sort of success last year . Yeah we got mugged at WC in the pre lim , not sure too many team would have beaten them anyway , but i am stunned that we didn't review the pre-lim and figured out that most teams had worked us out. It is pretty obvious what our issues are , i read it on these posts most of this seasons. If we can see it , why can't the coaches?

That's my biggest concern, it's just so obvious what the issues are, yet there is seemingly some sort of stubborn determination that this game style is absolutely the right one, and things will magically improve without fixing any of the glaring deficiencies that are driving everyone insane.

Champion data can suck but stuff like that is a great insight. It shows how far our obsession with pure contested ball numbers has made us fall
I love how contested ball is be all end all for us. Said it once before but if we win 1 contested ball but a rubbish handpass misses and our players then need to go in and win it again to do the same again then a s**t kick and then win another contested ball. We've had 3 or 4 contested ball stats for rubbish disposal in 1 chain of possession. Where as another team will be losing contested ball because they move the ******* ball better. Contested ball stats only ******* matter if you can use the ball dont give a fu** if we win it cause of our own s**t disposal. Goodwin 'oh there was alot to like we won contested ball which we pride ourselves on' yeah cause we created 100 more contested ******* ball stats out of rubbish

Only top 8 side Collingwood beat last year was us, and only top 8 sides they've beaten this year are Brisbane, Richmond and West Coast last week (if you use the same parameters as the post I quoted which excluded finals).
Last year I agree with but 3 wins against the top 8 is pretty decent this year.

Crazy they were almost premiers last year with that record

I don’t reckon it was the Dr. similar characteristics but a higher rate of things that made some sense (still low at 25%)

The real question is who is Dr. Truth

Knew it was him after he talked about 'working at club level'. The dickhead volunteered to help with some pleb jobs and thinks he is top s**t because of it.

Geez you’re generous, I actually didn’t get a membership this year (Second time since 2000 I haven’t signed up). Our membership numbers will drop 10k next year imo

I only have an armchair membership for obvious locational reasons, but was planning to upgrade my membership to be able to then fork over more money for the GF Guarantee. Fortunately last year I set up my membership to automatically renew for this season, otherwise I may have done it straight off the bat, instead I decided to hold off, because I trust this team like I trust my 4 year old holding my chocolate bar ... one of my better moves recently.
