There was a couple of annoyed people but for the most part the crowd didn’t give a sh*t. We need these guys to give us something to cheer about.Sounded dead on the stream too. So many bad umpiring calls, and barely a peep. Not sure if that was just from where the effects mic was?
I’m talking about only being able to play when the pressure is off, not patchy skills.People fall apart because they don’t believe in their skills.
Trying to fix that with anything other than practicing skills is hogwash.
Lokan and Cornes walk past me at 1/2 time "have a look at the scoreboard", neither even looked sideways at me.There was a couple of annoyed people but for the most part the crowd didn’t give a s**t. We need these guys to give us something to cheer about.
I wouldn't expect any coach to look in that situation. One of the biggest guidelines to almost everyone involved in the AFL industry is to not get involved with members and fans in the media. I wouldn't worry too much about it, they definitely heard it.Lokan and Cornes walk past me at 1/2 time "have a look at the scoreboard", neither even looked sideways at me.
We had slow start issues under Chad for his first half season of coaching. We were short kicking out of defence until about 40m out from goal and then trying to run the ball with handball. We'd then come out in the second quarter and kick over the lines from defence to the wing area and then handball receive and kick. About mid-way of the season we changed and did what we were doing in second quarters from the beginning of the game, and it made a difference to our poor starts, and that's how I saw it. Today was like that first half of Chad's season.Surely amongst all the coaches we have, one of them would be genius enough to work out why our slow starts.
Obviously oppo teams have worked us out. Time we need to do something different at the beginning of games.

While Port took a run of good form into the clash Lokan said his side was five or 10 percent off around the ground.
“It is another good learning curve for our predominately young group that you can’t give any side an inch and if you do,” he said.
