I think you missed the point of my post. Our game is done, and it was rubbish, can’t change that now. If Sydney knock over Geelong we get a better pick. A silver lining after the fact.
No I mean every year people get more excited about the high draft picker are going to get..

surely it’s time the picks get traded for an established player than going back to the draft again for another “kid with potential”

It is pretty concerning for me.
It's like the coaching group has decided which players will make us a finals team in 3-4 years time instead of playing people to actually find out.
Never know what you might find!

Should have rested a couple, particularly in the back half to give others a run.
We came second to Port Adelaide who only used 30 players all season. Us 31, but if you go from after the break and remove Joyce and Brodie, we come in at 29 and the winners for least players used. Considering limited injuries and congested draw, its not rocket science to work out why the team looked out of gas.

Yet the Coch will come out and say Brodie 2MP and Fiorini are required players and won’t be traded for anything less then a first Rd pick...

*last 2h of trade week*

all gone for future 3rd Rd picks

I have been really disappointed 3 times this year.
Game 1 against Port.
The Lions game.
And this one.
The Blues game was woeful but given our selection policies that was always going to be a difficult game (foot, gun, fire away).

But against the Hawks, once again, it was just not good enough b/c it showed a lack of effort and desire. Have a look at the tackle numbers for some of our mids, one way traffic (don't think Ando will be wanting to watch that game again).

Strongly suggest Clarko is ringing up the AFL every year asking for a late season game against the Suns so he can retire a few more players in style. FFS!@!!!!

The Blues getting criticised for consistently giving up long goal streaks. We should be getting heavily criticised for not turning up too many times in a season. This is the type of mindset that leaks across to next season. Rowelly and getting a year older won't fix everything.

For future reference, search for a clip of college women's basketball coach Kara Lawson talking about working hard versus competing.
Too much hard work and not enough competing for mine.

The performance wasn’t but doesn’t mean you just go abusing the CEO
I wouldnt abuse him at all, Id just want a clarification on where the club stands on the last month of the year and what they are going to do to rectify these late season fadeouts, as they have happened every year and its getting beyond a joke

The football department has been preoccupied in the last month or so Supersuns. Unfortunately it's not with football.

They got rid of everyone who questioned the lack of standards/accountability.
How would the much lauded wonderful gift that all the amazing and so much superior to us idiots from the Gold Coast-Tweed from The VFL House school tie brigade in Mark Evans that was bestowed upon us be so bad in his judgement to allow this to happen?

I don’t doubt what your saying, you have never been wrong before.
If this is the case, one would think the players have caught on?

If I was Fiorini Brodie or 2MP I’d be out quick smart.
It’s obvious Dew has his favourites and once your out.
The door is officially locked behind you.
