That St Kilda game was a sh*t lead in to good opposition the next week, I'm not liking some of the keepings off crap we play against garbage oppo tbh you strike a high intensity side and it falls to sh*t.

This loss was about effort and attitude. Just watched the first qtr again and Healy himself mentions numerous times from around the 5min mark how uncontested the game is. It's almost like he's incredulous at how Port are performing. States "they're being led to the ball and they're putting no heat on the ball carrier". A few minutes later refers to us as witches hats and lacklustre. We got absolutely owned in most parts of the ground and in most one on ones.

They showed our pressure rating and it was so low it was almost off the chart.

Last year's H&A game against the Tigers was our best footy. Had a fast start and got out to a comfortable lead which could've been even more at quarter time had we capitalised on a few chances.

Forced Richmond to catch up to us, with our forward line we should be putting away sides early.

The last few years we've been embarrassing in the midfield against Brisbane. The "Sutcliffe" game we were 6 goals down in a blink of an eye because our midfield didnt turn up. Last year we got smashed in the middle in Q2 and Q3 giving up something like 10 consecutive centre clearances.

This year we actually matched, if not beat them in the midfield battle. This loss was all down to execution and positioning. We had plenty of opportunities to do something up forward but our forward positioning was atrocious.

We are going to lose games. It happens. There's no shame in losing to WC and Brisbane on their home deck where both are virtually unbeatable.
Agree with all this but geez it makes finishing in the top 2 crucial.
We don’t want to be playing In Perth or Brisbane again this year.
