Its true you cant keep consistantly losing games to other top four contenders and expect to win premierships. It was a terrible loss from two goals up and having a set shot 15m out directly in front late in the final quarter. There were some good signs too, but its worrysome that this keeps happening.We came up with plenty of excuses as to why we lost to Richmond last year too, and why it wouldn't matter in the end.
And why we couldn't beat a top 4 side in 2019. Funnily enough we couldn't do it in the finals either (then blamed the timing of Willie's suspension).
Team shat the bed in the last and blew what should have been a three goal lead (thanks Crippa).
