Of anything the problem is trying too hard.
Complete panic and desperation out there since midway through the second quarter. Have we once attempted to hit a target going inside 50? Nope, just panic, bang it long, hope.

Tackling pressure was great and has ended up just headless chooks, and the defence is in utter panic.

Ugghhh

How much pressure is Walsh putting on if he has to run 30 metres? How often does the ball carrier *not* easily sidestep the chasedown*?


*carlton possessions not included

I’ll say it again, Will Setterfield is a dud. Marc Murphy’s in his 30s, easy target. Players like Setterfield are flakes. This team lacks one fundamental ingredient, and that’s honesty.
This team has too many bludgers; they don’t want to win at any cost.
100% correct re setters. he plays scared. wont go for the ground ball if there is a pack and any risk of getting hurt

This was a good game to put in some "freshness" into the team... you could already see Murphy and few others needed a rest.. bar injury we keep playing the same 22 in a tough season

I still believe until our midfield doesn't have to run a hard tag every week we will struggle to be elite .. we need some running back and a positive kicking mid -- all our starting mids are natural handballer bone burst players
