    It's less disheartening than the last few years, but goddamn is this an annoying year.

    Everything about it is just annoying.

    Don't mind the loud crash from Brisbane. PFK has fallen off the wagon. Bloody hell.

    What a tease this team is.

    Every week I read our game day threads. And everyone here blames the umpires.

    It’s not their ****en fault. We are just shit.

    I honestly think tonight wasn't that bad.

    We're frustratingly close to being a good team. Cut out the turnovers and we win.

    We're competing in games off the back of the kids. The worm is starting to turn long term.

    Holy **** though, short term, things seem bad. Those turnovers still exist right now and whilst we butcher the ball it's hard to see where our first win comes from.

    Abysmal game. The scoreline flattered us. Not enjoyable at all. A good team wouldve slaughtered us.

    Well, our "young and promising team" just got proven to be out of date by a younger and more promising team.

    Really poorly umpired too. Not one sided. Just horribly inconsistent.

    The Lions are like me in the late 90s on the dance floor at Rosies, Fridays and The Victory so close to nailing it but yet so far!!!

    Well, when we are 0-22, the AFL will have to reward a priority pick. I thought the dogs were very average tonight, so I cant see the Lions winning a game

    Simple as our midfield getting smashed for 3 quarters. Forwardline was quite good apart from Hipwoods kicking and backline was good apart from Eagles’ constant mistakes.

    Out: Bundy, Eagles, Bailey

    Bundy has been terrible all season. Needs to find form and perhaps the right attitude. Eagles possibly the worst 28 year old to ever play AFL. Bailey can work on stuff in the twos. Has been impressive but we can’t carry him. Squizzy only survives because he played well against the pies.

    Ins: hard to judge based on the opposition this week and the bye. Keays seems next cab off the rank. Bastinac could play Bundys role. Mayes could come back in.

    The same usual BS rubbish served up by the same usual suspects.

    Seriously questioning the ability of the match committee and coaching department.

    Have made the call and will know in the next 24-48 hours. It’s a genuine possibility and if they offer $400-1 or there abouts, I’m definitely going to put something on it.

    He was...passable but damn he makes some bizzare choices sometimes. He has this sort of unlock-able potential to be an absolute line and game breaker but...ugh.

    I think the knocks on Bundy are a little unfair, the bloke has had 2 years out with injury. At another club he would've spent 4 weeks in the 2's to get his shit together before playing in the big league.

    I did get a high score this afternoon and put my name down as ASS.
    Things went down hill after that...

    Coach killing turnovers, poor shots at goal. Nothing wrong with our game plan. More output from senior players and the wins will come.

    Thought we looked more dangerous with Big O in the ruck.

    We’re improving, and our young kids are jets.

    It’s just now that our mistakes are now the difference between wins and losses as opposed to the difference between 40 point losses and 80+ point floggings in previous years.

    More frustrating for years no doubt, but it’s building slowly no matter how much you want to punch our players in their face.

    Darkest before dawn etc... melt away if you must though.

    Formula 1 qualifying from Barcelona coming up on Fox Sports 6.

    Have fun.
