Didn't watch the game, but saw the scoreline. Another car crash season goes by. The 9 wins are extremely misleading. Look at out percentage we are horrendous. I am just such a negative nancy these days. I come from a 4th generation of Saints supporters, my grandparents queued overnight to get tickets to the 66 GF. I love the club, but I am pretty much done. It is much more than the infield results.

It is mind boggling to me Finnis appears to be under no pressure. You couldn't make this many mistakes if you were actively trying. This miserable club should be renamed the Desporadoes or the Leftovers for blokes like Hanners, Lethlean and Carlisle to take whatever they please. Have a chat to opposition supporters, we are a laughing stock.

This year I allowed both of my kids to go for Geelong their mum's team and I didn't renew my membership for the first time in 20 years. I know many Saints fans in the same boat. Thanks for the rainbow game you are a joke.

I dont anticipate renewing next year eithet. Matt Finnis, this is the consquences of you're reign of mediocrity. GAGF you incompetent bum.

I will always be stuck going for this rabble of a club, but i am so fed up. We are in deep trouble, who in their right mind would want to play for this club unless it is for an overinflated salary. We are screwed.

Looks like Finnis is finished , we have sacked everyone else so let's sack him.

If it makes the Saints better and a shot at a premiership I don’t give a fu**
That's the spirit!
We're bottom 4 after 8 years without finals- there should be no sacred cows at this point.

I'm not advocating a fire sale- but simply saying our minds cannot be closed to any possible avenues at this point.

Complete blue sky dreaming- nothing is in or out of contemplation.

Cocktease game for a cocktease season

Time for another finals series of jealously while we become the club with the longest finals drought and finals win drought if Essendon and Brisbane get up.

Trade period awaits.

With no picks because we spent them last year. Hooray. It's okay though we can trade out some required players to get back into the draft again.

Mentally weak.

Training and development.
I find myself in total agreement with your opinion about training and development, have thought the same for a long time.

We need people who can drive higher standards in the coaching team and in the players leadership group, makes players accountable when they turn in efforts like the last two weeks.

Whether it's last game of the season or first, you play for the jumper and if you disrespect it, you get out of the circle and earn your way back.

Luckily we have many many more who don't think like that.
Actually no we dont. The suppoerters willing to put up with anything like yourself are all old. You are kidding yourself if you expect kids to go for a club with no stars and always finishes near the bottom.

Try your "things were worse in the 80's" logic on anybody less than 30 and they will look at you like you are an alien. Club is rooted.

What if you think 10 players disrespected it? The players try they just aren't any good. You have to recruit skilled players. Its to late to learn skill at 18 if you have 10 years of being unskilled.

Didn't sugarcoat the fact that players need to offloaded to get some better skills in.
You need to give quality to get quality.

It's not simply a matter of magically somehow trading the poor skilled players we have for higher skilled ones.

Trading the likes of ross etc for other b/c graders with better skills wont result in more wins.
Because sure, the likes of ross, newnes etc have poor skills- but they have strengths in other areas (endurance, contested ball, etc).

The better skilled b/c graders we replace them with will create deficiencies in areas we are currently strong in.
Therefore the net result would be minimal improvement at best.

We need to bring in skilled A graders to come in over the TOP of our current average skilled footsoldiers.

Seb ross for instance is a great 4th best mid- his skills are perfectly acceptable for a ~4th best, bench rotation mid.

Our issue isn't his skills.
Our issue is he is our number 1 mid when he should be our 4th best.
