Hope you don’t mind the intrusion but I agree with most of what you have written. You have the best list in the comp and are playing well. We are more a 6-8 list who got on a bit of a roll for a while at the end of 2018. At the moment we are woefully out of form and tonight could get way out of control. We have hardly looked like scoring recently.

One thing I have noticed a bit after reading your board a bit since late last year is there seems a feeling the Vic media have it in for the Eagles. My feeling is the opposite. Reckon you are pretty universally admired and get good press. Have been seen as one of the main benchmark teams for a long time now
cheers and congrats on the win - well deserved!

And you only post here when we lose or are likely to lose.

You are nowhere to be seen when we win. It's like you detest us winning. Chuck Norris would be proud of your MIA.

Interesting

Ah well. Pies deserved it, they played very good tough footy tonight. Grundy absolutely monstered that last quarter, made Hickey look like a wet paper bag & broke even with NN, which their mids took advantage of.

Looks like WCE ran out of gas at the end, they could not generate any run. Oh well, hope the coming 8 day break helps us.
There's a reason the saints didn't want Hickey.

He's a useless crab and doesn't belong in our side.

Now this is a bit too far.

We had many, many opportunities to score when we didn't. Even if we lost by a point, the game didn't rest on one missed opportunity in the second - a lack of composure and running out of gas played a far larger part then a single mistake when we were dominating.

There were at least two clean scoring chains (when we had very few) in the last that were stuffed up by Sheed fumbling, but you and I both know it isn't his fault that we lost. This was on the team, not a single player.

He's being hidden in a great team.

He's not that good mate.

Good to see other posters share the same anger as me. Should've f’ed them off during the third quarter. Useless fu**s. I was gonna give Masten votes too but his kick in the last means fu** all for him. Kennedy as well, wtf was that tonight? Rest him up next week, no need to travel to the NT. McGovern was well and truly below par tonight. So, so far below. Cole was about as useful as Duggan's a-hole. Our midfield decided bruise free was the best bet after getting 3 goals up. Sheed was the worst for this. Ruined his game with that pathetic effort too. I haven't melted so hard over a game of footy in so, so long. Maybe it's the alcohol. Maybe it's because I feel like we blew everything tonight. Maybe it's because we're full ******* strength and we're still s**t. I remember why I try to distance my emotions from games sometimes because s**t like this will ruin my ******* night now
I feel ya mate. Most dispiriting, deflating win of the season. I think because it was such a great opportunity to make a push for back to back, everyone was talking us up and we were expected to win. Everything was kind of going to script until scoring dried up and it seemed all we were doing was defending. We just dropped off so badly again, as we've been doing time and time again this year. But gotta remember it's still just a game, and HOPEFULLY we take something out of this going forward.

The game itself was supremely frustrating, as I watched us barely clinging on. We were heroic in defence as the Pies kept peppering the goals but it shouldn't have even got to that stage. Felt we were gonna run over them at 3 quarter time 18 up, but it was not to be.

Oh well, one week at a time, let's see how much we really want it. We're still a chance for 2nd so not all lost. Our percentage and points is similar to the Pies.
