    I remember when this board self destructed after losing to the top ups in NAB Challenge
    Not to worried about Billings, but wtf happened to Bruce? He looked to have so much upside. Looked good in his first year with the Saints, but he's gone backwards. That vision of him hitting the post from less than 10 meters out sums up his season last year, in all honesty

    Yeah but then we lost to them in the real thing and our self-destruction was justified.

    Correct, i like to think of 2016 as the curtain falling on the shit era. As good as some things where that year, losing to top ups in Round 2, than pissing away finals in front of Carlton and then to send Roosy on his way with his worst loss as a coach.

    Although i guess last years heartbreak most would make a strong case for, but i like to think of it as a new dawn. As painful as it is

    Losing to North twice, Hawks when they were crap and Freo at the G when they were crap all little nods to the shitness of the club.

    I don’t know how we would cope without your naturally upbeat nature

    Everyone loses to bottom teams at some point during the season, but we still do it way to often. Losing one of those would have been OK, two acceptable, but anymore is shit.

    Preseason games are weird, you'd expect the teams to be going pretty hard with only two games before round 1 but some of them don't look like they give a shit at all.

    Nothing quite like the Collingwood board going nuclear.

    It's probably 50/50 if the likes of St Kilda and Collingwood are just phoning it in, or if they're just genuinely terrible.

    I'm tempted to get on them for the spoon after that. Forward line total trash, no depth whatsoever, back line not much better.

    I know the games mean nothing but if we lost to St Kilda next week I’d be a touch concerned, we looked about 10 goals better than them when you compare the games.

    They were missing a lot of players to be fair, but how many of them will they have round 1 and into the season, and how much do they fix that trash when they’re back? Elliott, Fasolo and Wells are injured more than they’re fit, and I wouldn’t be shocked if we’d seen the last of Wells. If Treloar isn’t running inside 50 and having a shot he’s probably turning it over, Howe can intercept well, and hit targets when he feels like it, but can’t defend. Moore is being thrown to the wolves to learn how to be a defender in this team, that’s doomed to fail hard

    Absolutely agree. Even if StKilda and Collingwood are just cruising in 2nd gear, I much prefer our philosophy of trying to win every game we play in, the old “train like you play” and all that.

    This X2. Disgusting we lost to them with so much on the line and some of their best players out. Still fuming. Especially when I see how ordinary Collingwood looked tonight. Buckley to be gone by end of season..

    Its a fair point, but look at their 22.

    B: Howe Dunn Goldsack
    HB: Crisp Moore Scharenberg
    C: Wells Pendlebury Varcoe
    HF: Elliott Reid Fasolo
    F: Daicos? Cox WHE
    R: Grundy Treloar Sidebottom
    Int: Blair Maynard Adams Greenwood

    Yes, the inside brigade rocks. But those KPP stocks are average, and there's nothing behind them.

    I hate Carlton and their filthy supporters after last year more than anything but I admire their list build. Stack it with KPP talent then attack the midfield. They'll win a few this year

    I can't believe Cox is firmly a part of their best 22. It's like if Jack Fitzpatrick was your main full forward.
