frustrating game to watch.

we go in for the tackle and execute it well, the ball gets out and they are getting to it. We are kicking it to their spare a lot too.

I muted the commentators early, but I think they mentioned early theres a breeze? so we had it q1 and q3? hope we can turn this around

ew what a ugly game. we never got rolling really. some bad misses early on.

and the umpiring (both ways I guess) was frustratingly wishy-washy.

Credit to Richmond's defence for refusing to break and using the conditions to their advantage.

Can't help but feel that if Wardlaw plays that we win that one.

Ah well.

A valuable lesson learned here. Need to play those situations very differently. We used space very poorly. Defence was great and kept us in it, midfield and forwards had their worst game if the season. Hickie fantastic, Dawes worked hard. They will be disappointed with this effort.

We've got players who can kick goals. We shouldn't need to be so dependent on one player. Bodey tried but just kept missing.

That's not what lost us the game though......Dax should NEVER have played on. She tried to be spectacular and failed. Should've been workman like and gone back for the set shot.

I don't want to learn "valuable lessons". I want to win.

No doubt lesser sides are going to try smothering our game with negative close checking from here on. We could be in for some very ugly footy between now and the end of the season.

Agree.
Tigers did that a bit too easily today.

Well, bleh.

Back in the mid 90's, I liked the Tiges....mainly due to RIcho it must be said.

I have grown to loathe the men's team over the past 6-7 years and then today....bleh bleh bleh.

What a deflating 7 days for our footy club lol.

Still, always next week - and we are still at or near the top.

Richmond's defensive work was good but our poor skills today made them look better than they are.

Dakota with absolute worst on ground performance. Gives away a stupid 50 when we had the wind advantage letting them get up the ground and then subsequently kick the winning goal late in the third just 2 kicks later. Then she doubles down on that error by lacking any sense of composure by running off the mark from the edge of the goal square and getting smothered with only 2 minutes to go in the 4th. She needs to focus on doing the basics with running and presenting for lead up kicks rather than act all cute and play like a small pressure forward.

Better to have such a terrible stinging game now rather than in a finals series.

Is it ok if I just hate them because it makes me feel better about everything and ascribe to them no acknowledgement of being better on the day? :D




That is extremely acceptable.


Them winning anything is just s**t. I wanted them to stay in 9th place where they belong.

Davidson also gave us some bail-out marks coming out of our d50 a few times. That 50 call was a bit iffy but was there, and that last goal was whatever. Seems she works well in tandem with Wardlaw, but I didn't mind her game today. I think it was more our midfield where it got murky, couldn't get the run going and just dumped kicks to their spare all day.
