Positive: One week closer to getting to watch Willie Rioli play.

Darling worked hard, TB worked hard. O'Neill was ok. Whatever.

Negatives:

How can the intent go from so good in quarter one to so abysmal in the second?

Who stood up and said fu** this, I'm going hard.

A few goal streak I get, but a 10+ goal quarter? Runs of 17 of 18 etc.

Simmo's worst loss. Well deserved too. Boys were running in quicksand, didn't get the ball but also didn't tackle. Shocking effort, and that's what this was - an effort loss.

Positives

Darling, Sheppard, Waterman, Allen, Witherden, Sheed

Negatives
Langdon and Jones are not AFL standard small forwards
Nic Nat- Went from being dominant in the 1st qtr to doing nothing for the rest of the game
Kelly and Gaff- They are not inside midfielders, they are outside midfielders, problem is we have no one to give them the ball.
Mcgovern Injury

This was the worst performance by a Eagles side in a long long time. That was not good enough. This team is so weak and soft mentally atm. Clearly their minds were on the lockdown, this team just switches off instantly.

That was our worst loss since 2009. Not since the breakdown of the greatest midfield of all time in the mid 2000s have we suffered a loss that bad.

Positive.
Allen maybe.
Detached from the team until the break.
Negative
Every player out there.
Club culture has to be seriously questioned. Two performances this year which are completely unacceptable. Multiple times we have folded and conceded massive run one's.
Stuff the chartered jet they should catch a bus home.

Glad I switched off and had a nap just before half time.

It's with the benefit of hindsight we can observe things.

Even with the injured players out, the team has Ben on the decline for 2.5 years.

The gameplan is rubbish. The players aren't up to it.

The Kelly trade has stunted our midfield rebuild by 2 years.

Tough times ahead in turning this list over.

+ve I'll never pay for Foxtel/Kayo so was quite content with this being a delayed FTA game. Kudos to whoever managed to organise that. Enjoyed the BF commentary team and while it sucks we lost I'm none the wiser of having to watch the crap that was delivered.

-ve Sounds like we managed to encapsulate every negative aspect that this side had displayed in recent years into one complete package of a game. Including pissing away a lead. Quite an achievement.
