I’m probably not quite as far on the pessimistic scale as you.. I don’t truely believe Adelaide have overtaken us.. not on skill anyway.Get ready for an angry rant, feel free to ignore or disagree
We are lazy, outworked. The Crows always had a supporting player for the outlet or a block, that isn’t talent it’s workrate
this team would be roasted in any of the football states, and rightly so but up here they will cushioned from it yet again and think they are on the right track. Sydney and the Crows have been better teams than us over our existence yet have bottomed out and already surpassed us our group screams of unrealised potential
People are frustrated so many players come and go for the same results.. but I think we need more mature players like burgess than kids from the draft with potential and a feel good story..whipping boy like Burgess only play a handful of games , already on delist list in many hater here .
Paul Roos ask GCs to draft Gibbon but GCS instead go for murdoch type .People are frustrated so many players come and go for the same results.. but I think we need more mature players like burgess than kids from the draft with potential and a feel good story..
10 years of continuous top 10 draft picks for no improvement
On SM-G960W using BigFooty.com mobile appWe are still missing a mature A grade player - mid or key forward - doesn’t really matter. But someone influential to to lift the team when the game is on the line. A match winner.
Definitely in a few years. We need one now though if we want to break the top 8.
Yeah certain it is,I’ll be shocked beyond shocked if Witts isn’t a medial. It was a collision.
Reckon Brodie and Fiorini get moved on. Should free some money upDefinitely in a few years. We need one now though if we want to break the top 8.
I can see why we chased Eagles Josh Kennedy hard last year.
Or imagine having Ablett in his prime in this team. Or Bont or Dusty.
The frustrating thing is we have so much cash tied up in players that are offering very little... Fiorini, Murdoch, Hombsch, Brodie... that buys an A grade match winner.
I can understand at the time for bringing in GHS Murdoch Miles Hombsch because there was a lot of young players no leadership poor culture so bringing on senior players from geelong and Richmond for leadership and depth but now a gibbons type would be more suited than going to the draft and taking a schoenfeld type hoping you’re going to get a good player in 3/4 years or keeping academy players like dawson or heron for a feel good storyPaul Roos ask GCs to draft Gibbon but GCS instead go for murdoch type .
I agree that our ceiling is high and while my post can be seen as pessimistic I think it is more of a rant from an angry fan that sees us once again wasting what we have. The whole “it’s ok they are young” narrative we see trotted out time after time is covering over the cracks that clearly show that many high draft players are well behind where they should beI’m probably not quite as far on the pessimistic scale as you.. I don’t truely believe Adelaide have overtaken us.. not on skill anyway.
But I do agree, too many players looked lazy, uninterested. Still think our ceilings high. We need to stop gifting games to players that don’t play their role. Ainsworth for one stunk up the joint, Brodie too..
Heck unpopular opinion: I don’t rate Izak... he does the freaky stuff well, but you just rarely see him. Drifts out of games.
