Can't blame the players for the obvious decision from the coaches to play more defensive and go down the sides than middle. The players don't look interested when they are pushed to be too defensive.The easy thing would be to bag the fringe players, but you know what this one is as much an example of coaching and planning than anything else.
You look at Hawthorn and even with their moderate talent they are so well organised. They are perfectly placed in defence, their players understand our guys strengths and weaknesses, they react perfectly to stoppages.
Our blokes are just a bunch of thoroughbreds without a plan, we are a fu***** rabble today, a roughly cobbled together prison team.
I don’t have any faith in the leaders at this joint.
Strange how some games the players are willing for the fight and then there are games like this with obvious defensive coaching , trying to make our talented players into Richmond drones, that we don't do so well in. You don't get a Ferrari to tow a boat , you get it to the finish line first.Our ball handling today stunk. Our tackling for the most part has been weak and atrocious as well.
There are many things we can argue about that will have no conclusive end. What is conclusive is that today we played a very boring and unwatchable gameplan. Brisbane have a much worse team than us but provide a lot more entertainment imo.Just seemed lazy.
