Bring in the Dew apologists, we have been away from home, we are young and tired, we have injuries blah blah blah

actually we are ******* lazy, kicking around our body without looking, allowing the opposition to run free and all of this comes down to coaching. If Clarkson was the coach you would be dropped for months for crap like the Bowes around the body kicks to no one.

That quarter was pathetic and he needs to be sacked, enough is enough

True, could’ve hit up kingy with a 15 metre kick who had a 5 metre clearance against his defender for an easy set shot yet they bomb it to the square and hope that Darcy will mark it smh 🤦🏻‍♂️

We need to lift next quarter because that was ABYSMAL

We have to be without a doubt the lowest IQ team in the league. Between the hospital passes, ball watching and lack of movement up the ground when we do get the ball, it is incredible.

Also, our decision to go into the season with 1 competent ruck once again killing us. (Not that Witts would be the difference in this one).

Our ability to hold any marks forward of centre especially inside 50…. Is the worst

Also Draper giving Zac a bath is killing us

Time to turn it off for the rest of the season I think

Why have we been pinged inside our back 50 all year and chip it around for no movement and let teams set up for us to either turn it over or take the riskiest 45 into the middle for a turnover anyways

I don’t get why we don’t play the surge mentality like Essendon and Brisbane do. We literally have a team of young runners and no talls and we play slow chip footy with players who can’t kick

Waterman is literally their full forward and he’s shorter than king Corbett jeffery sexton

King is so talented but so soft, whenever it’s not he’s day he doesn’t force the issue or crash enough packs to bring the ball to ground
So frustrating to watch

Just standing back each side of the runway watching hind run through and kick a goal

Soon as high pressure fast moving game style comes the players look lost

.....and there's a guy called Rankine at home sitting on the couch. Darcy is finished while Rankine will enjoy a 10 year plus career somewhere else. So sad to watch players not give a f..k and a coach with no clue.

Really looking gassed. All of our runners missing plus a lot of guys looking like they have hit the wall. At least we've been competitive for longer this year than other years, but the amount of VFL guys we've got running around out there is eye opening. King looks fried after carrying our forward line all year. Farrar, MacPherson, Jeffrey, Townsend, Smith and more ideally shouldn't be playing right now, but that's where we're at.

Even Touk looks buggered today. Trying, but nothing is working for him. Lots of direct turn-overs from unpressured positions suggests to me that the guys are about done.

This Bombers team is really good.
