Thanks. Lots of idiots kicking him 5 votes when Melbourne kicked it too him all night.

Dumb footballer, even Nelson could have looked AA with the amount of blind kicks Melbourne gave us.

Can’t generate a switch when Hurn takes the short defensive wide option over the 40-50m long option. He sets the tone and others follow. Esp Shep.

Similarly when the short option is on through the corridor Hurn opts for the slow long option down the line. He’s wired wrong, we’re premiers ffs.

There was a particular one in that last quarter which made me very mad, where we had all the momentum and he switched 30m back from like 80 out. Weak descision making.

I think you’re going a bit hard with the criticism though, he’s been enormous this season.

You okay mate? You sound like me this year when I get in a mood and, as you rightly say, take it out on Anus. Ainsworth as well.

I thought Hurn was very good tonight. Nobody had a perfect evening but his reading of the play was on point. McGovern gets praised to all heck when he feasts on poor kicking, why shouldn't Hurn? And he had some zinger disposals tonight to complement the slower movements you cite. Anyway.

So much this. When he moves it quickly we invariably score. When he turns his back on the play we tend to turn it over (generally the kick or 2 after hurn that ends up long down the line).

We look our best when hurn and jetts wheel and go. I get that it's not always possible, but we need it more often.

He needs a target though, you can expect him to just bomb it in. More of an indictment of eagles leading for the ball.

Flyin Ryan wow ..

I like these character building wins and this team is building wins on just hanging in there and grinding it out ..
Don`t understand the Hurn critisim he has been solid all year ..

He needs to not turn his back on the play. It's not his kicking that is the issue, it is the slow movement imo because the rest of the team bar Jetta cannot kick through a strong zone like he can.

Teams are defending us differently this year, and we look gold plated with quick ball movement and horrible with slow movement. (Ok, gold plated maybe a bit strong)

He's in great form, if he can be ready to see targets as soon as he has a mark I think we all have confidence he will hit it.

You wrote us off all season, then we won the flag. You write us off every week this season. We’re not playing a stunning, high flying, ladder leading brand of football, but we’re getting the job done. Have some faith in the club, they’ve more than earned it.

Scrappy contest but great turn around from the first 3 Qtrs, Liam's mark will definitely be a contender for mark of the year, I'm sure Gawny has a sore head after that mark. Good job boys got the result in the end, now beat Adelaide for us next week! Despite the fact we won the umpiring was ****, (both sides will agree) but I thought our mids played pretty well, just need to win the contested balls.

Hai gaiz!


Came for the melts, wasn't disappointed. Glad i wasn't posting in here during the game or i'd have been melting as well to be fair. Tough to watch.

Up your game next week if you can though. Too much emphasis on being weak and disgusting, rather than folding the club.
