Super jealous of Sydney. Playing some awesome footy, young guns are actually delivering. Their old horses are consistent as ever. Hope they finish the job off here

Maybe the loss to eagles wasn’t so bad.. looking at what they are currently doing to a genuine contender.

I’m a GC native so Suns are my second team, and I’m a member!

I think the boys played brilliantly against the Crows. It’s a tough gig playing in Adelaide and you took it to them, and that feral crowd. Even with Tex kicking a bag.

As much as everyone hates the phrase, it was an ‘honourable loss’. Certainly leagues ahead of what the Sa*nts dished up today. Hope to see you playing finals this year.

Love seeing RICHmond get what they deserve but at the same time it’s embarrassing to see Adelaide and Sydney rebuild on one off season while we continue to flounder.
10/18 starters for the 2016 Sydney Grand final are still playing and they've had the same coach the whole time. I know they had a lean last two years but the foundation of a premiership favourite team is still there, It's not really a surprise that they are able to bounce back.

Adelaide as well have 9/18 still playing from their 2017 GF year.

We haven't had that foundation group yet. As a club we don't really have any benchmark of where we need to be to succeed. It'll take time, but it'll happen. Still quietly confident we'll give finals a shake this year

Agree....travel to Perth....6 day break....come home have a win......travel to Adelaide off a 6 day break.....lose by 10.......and it's the end of the world

Next week we have Carlton who are off a 6 day break but haven't left Melbourne yet after 3 rounds, and we're off an 8 day break, so if we fall in a heap here, then you all can let fly with both barrels....although I'd have been happier if it was Carlton who travelled to Perth and Adelaide in the 1st 3 rds....although we all know that will never happen.

So Crows beat one of last years grand finalists, They ran Sydney close enough whom just beat the tar out of last year's Premiers - West Coast just beat the tar out of last year's Minor Premiers.

We've just run both West Coast and Adelaide close away from home.

I'm not making excuses or putting all my faith in transitive wins and losses BUT I think we can all agree that 2 and a half rounds into the season, No one has the foggyist of who is a "good team" or a "bad team" right now*

*Except maybe North... Sorry Roos

Nothing will settle till around round 6 or 7. Last years form is very hard to put a finger on so teams like Adelaide and Sydney more then likely just had a bad season and now will be back to normal. Last year doesn't exist imo

The problem IMO isn't the losses. It's the injuries we're getting out of every game. Each one takes a chunk out of our ability to compete - Witts especially so.

Our B rank midfield is going to have to be working out of their skins to get the ball out of the middle without a ruck to help give them the ball.

Watching Carlton vs Fremantle. 1st qtr - so far lower quality, slower game than SUNS vs Crows. If we had Witts I would be very confident we beat Carlton especially 8 vs 6 day break. It will be in Burgess hands next Sat.
