Where did I say they were the reason?

The reason West Coast even got remotely close is because of 1) Liam Ryan, 2) our goalkicking & 3) our game plan.

All the umpiring decisions in the world would not have mattered if those 3 factors had not intervened.
“The only reason we didn’t win was because we weren’t good enough to win and the opposition had some better players that won the game for them” does that about sum it up?

Since there weren't so many genuine moments to capture from this game (aside from Ryan's), I decided to focus on some passages of play and small acts that helped us turn the scoreboard around, as well as some good signs from younger players. Duggan was pretty noticeable in the midfield, looked right at home.

The good ones



Let's ignore his clean skills below his knees, smooth moves through traffic, few nice deliveries inside 50 and nice contested marks we've seen this year.

He has shown more "special" glimpses than most of our other depth. Unfortunately he's also squibbed a bit and also has to carry the top draft pick tag.

Strongly agree with this.

Because of our key position riches, the team is trying to turn Brander into a 195cm winger, that is only possible because of his extremely impressive package of skills for someone that height. That is a very tough gig to learn and a long term investment, because really you are only going to see the results when he builds an elite midfield tank and plays enough football to develop the smarts to consistently get 20 touches a game in space- once he adds those aspects to his game, his height suddenly makes him in to the perfect link player, because noone who can run with him is going to be able to defend him when he is leading for link marks.

The role he is playing reminds me a lot of Andrew Embley- who had about 50 absolutely trash games and then suddenly blossomed into an absolutely elite versatile big wingman and matchup nightmare.

I've liked what we saw this year- there were a few games where you could see he was starting to read the play better and become a consistent option in space- and we have so many good quality young KPPs it is a very smart decision by the club to try to develop him this way.

Some of the best and worst according to stats;

Naitanui - 9 hitouts to advantage (more than every other ruckman on the field combined).
Kelly - 12.5% kicking efficiency, below that of Petruccelle at 33% (needs some serious work).
Barrass / Rotham - 8 spoils and 9 one percenters each (both game highs).
Sheppard - Game high 7 tackles.
Gaff - 4 centre clearances and 14 contested possessions (both game highs, along with total distance covered, inside 50s, and frees for).
Ah Chee - 8 ground ball gets and 3 f50 ground ball gets (game high and second for the game respectively).

I'm mildly stunned that some of you folk are bitching about umpire bias.

Anyway, they're the biggest blight on the sport regardless of who is getting reamed at the time.
Well we lost a game because the video referral ump failed to check the reverse angle .
I suppose it's hard to check both

There’s no way Ainsworth has put on any real size since he was drafted though. If anything looks like he’s gotten skinnier. Petch/Brander too. wtf campaigners
cole as well. Sheed put on bulk and then a season lost a lot of it

is it me or does Waterman posses some decent footy IQ and Vision, especially when he's coming out of defence?

Man seeing Nic Nat being so dominant at ground level make me wish that we can get a year of two towards the end where can play a bit as a midfielder.

You can jump fwd/back by 15 seconds with Kayo interface on appleTV. it’s not easy to figure out initially but once you get how to it’s not too bad.

Waterman is a potential Hurn replacement and Nic has the best hand in the wet.
