Can't help but wonder if Rayner had just handballed to Robinson running beside him into an easy I50.

All the momentum was with the Lions at that point. No one could match it with Cripps though, he was huge. Missing Berry massively.

I hope this is a real wake up call not just for the players but for a bunch of supporters on here. The arrogance that has crept in in recent weeks has been really poor. Many of us have become entitled quicker than Melbourne fans did last year.
Hmm agree and disagree in equal measure.

Finding it a bit hard to pan people for being filthy.

- smell of finals in our nostrils
- heading towards the bye with momentum
- 37 points up against 18th team
- Bulldog’s special night

If you are gonna spit the dummy as a fan, this feels like the right time.

It's the 37 points up that kills me. It was a special performance from Cripps but we couldn't muster up enough effort to kick 6 goals in the second half rather than just 3? We couldn't win a single marking contest down the line or get the groundball and move it forward?

Big missed opportunity with the tiges losing too. We'll be fighting for 7th/8th at best now rather than having a chance to be in the 8 comfortably.

On the whole the season has been a big success but losses like today are very frustrating. I can take our loss to Collingwood - it's losing away games to below average teams that irritates.
