Last year the Bombers killed us off half back - as other sides did - and this year they did the same. Yet Scott picked a side where our second ruckman - Zurhaar - looked most likely to crumb a goal and most agile at ground level. And that includes Turner.
This problem, of opposition sides just killing us off half back, is a long term one and it's Scott's to own. High quality small forwards like Walters of Freo are not just icing on the cake as Brad seems to think.
It's also very concerning how players like Ahern, Thomas, Simpkins and others seem to have had their natural instincts coached out of them.
The list is way better than it's performing - even with the small forward gap - but the players look completely devoid of belief in the Scott's direction and the side's balance.
It's obviously time Brad went and the long term assistants too and player development needs a big review.
Can we give negative votes? Surely that was the worst game played by a NMFC captain in living memory. Maybe Boomer got totally tagged out of a game by Clint Jones one night but...yeah...nah...Ziebell 👎👎👎👎👎
