Teams have tried the flood against us before and it hasn't worked. If you commit that many players to defense we will put up a wall and refuse you any ball forward of center. Eventually our return entries get a result.

It's happened many times and usually it results in a crushing defeat.

The way to beat us is pace out of the contest
I'd just keep it simple with, "have a plan to get it into the forward line" being a key fundamental.

100% yes. When the Crows lose it's because we get beaten in the midfield. Flooding back and letting us have the numbers advantage through the centre is doomed to failure.

Maybe it can be done against us in short bursts just to stifle our scoring but it can't be your plan A!
