Oh well. We lose by 23 points. Not shattered. GWS a quality team and likely grand finalists. Felt we could have been closer but skills let us down when the crunch came. Quite a few passengers today - quite a few.

There can be only one...
4 goals in the end, pretty disappointing in the end. Felt team selection didn't help us this week.

Effort was fine. Skills a bit average. Smashed in centre. Goldy was weak but umps let De Boer and Mumford get away with grand larceny.
That goal review was an abomination and umpiring was putrid.
I thought we looked tired last week so not surprised we lost at all. GWS a very good side.

An extremely large amount of holding of our players that went on completely unrewarded. Cunnington apparently doesn't deserve frees for being held without the ball because... well, I'm not sure why. That contest right at the death with I think LDU a perfect example, ball is on the ground his jumper is literally stretched a foot off him and it was let go. Glad that they fought it out though, plenty to work with going into the Collingwood game.

Outclassed in the end. But FMD!!! Umpiring was ******* atrocious. We got reamed.. so many non calls that should have been in our favour and they got so many bulls**t ones.

We were raped. That's all there is to it.

These incompetent HACKS deserve a thousand time more heat than they get.

Well,for once we were the team to score late goals. It tidied up the scoreline for us. 23 points doesn’t look too bad. It was about right. We ran out of puff. It was good to see Jy and LDU going at it in the middle late.

Honestly,. if you're blaming the umps for this loss, you're an unambiguous moron.
If you can't concede the umpiring was s**t, you're a fu** wit.

We can all see GWAFL are murdering us around the contest, but to compound that with 4-5 goals from the maggots and stealing one off us at the same time is frustrating at the least.

The yellow maggots were as bad as our midfield this arvo. Truly f’ed.

We should have had a four goal lead at half time.

The umpiring only got worse.

They smashed us in the clearances, yet they were able to - in Healy's words - 'maul' our best clearance player and our ruckman, without repercussion.

Shaw should have given someone a license to put De Boer out of the game. I don't normally condone sniping but if the umps won't pull up on dirty tactics then someone has to.

With a 23 point differential, we should have won that.
