Would be more ideal, but sometimes you need it this way. Lose to Melbourne and it may be looked at as an aberration at an unfamiliar ground against an opponent who we took too lightly.That is one way of looking at it, but I'd rather have the wake up call next week against Melbourne than give a leg-up to another top two contender.
From what I’ve seen this season, anything can happen, so a one point loss to a fellow top 4 contender is far from season over.. Collingwood, Brisbane and Geelong aren’t going to win all their remaining games for the year and I’d expect at least 2 of them to have a loss similar to ours tonight that will hopefully balance it out. Regardless, you’d think we’d be likely to get the G if we don’t get a home qualifying final so it’s not exactly all bad.
Yep, couldn't go with them in the last Q. Unusual for us - as others have said I think 2 wet slogs took its toll. Injuries are creeping in too - Duggan and Cripps now. The latter a very vital cog. 1 lousy point - can't grumble too much, I guess. I hope the Petch has a good game on Sunday.Negative 4th qtr.
No excuses we didn't travel, should have been able to run this out.

So no positives and you have put cameron kicking 4 above the negatives.No positives.
Cameron kicking four again.
Kennedy was a non event;
Cripps getting injured - more important than we realise;
Oscar Allen nearly marks it all the time but usually doesn't
Least it wont be -40 ° and 50 kt winds - ill take there over the arctic wastelandsI am melting so hard and I can't remember the last time I melted this bad after a game. Not even Melbourne round 22 last year could cause a melt like this. I honestly reckon that Brisbane game in 2010 when we were doomed the spoon is the last time I've melted so bad, and I was 15 back then.
The positives are extremely hard to remember at the moment. I'll say Cameron with his four goals and pressure that Petrucelle could only dream of. Sheppard was good. Masten and Redden had good first halves before ruining everything. Darling started well. Rioli started well.
Everything else is a big negative. Cripps' injury just another thing to add to this. Can't wait to have the MC bring Petrol in so he can have 9 disposals 0.1 and one flashy highlight. I also can't wait to s**t the bed in Alice Springs because weird out of the way football grounds is our kryptonite.
Yeah not overly concerned. Decent chance we get 2nd back in the next 2 or 3 weeks. Collingwood are a bloody good team though people actually had them missing the top 4. This was always going to happen them bouncing backWe lost one game against a team we’ve played five times in a year. 4-1.
We lost our second game from the last 10. 8-2.
Percentage off second with Melbourne, North and Carlton coming up. Fold the club.
