Disgraceful effort tonight.

We’re like a deer in the headlights when we play on the big stage.

Hate to think how much we’ll get pumped by Collingwood in the unlikely event we beat GWS.

I'm disappointed but really proud the way the boys came out at the start to play. Such ferociousness.

That type of accuracy we've had several times throughout the year so not entirely due to the moment.. i guess.

The umps will get spoken of often.. and rightly so.

When we had the mojo going Rayner was right in the heat of it and that was really exciting to watch.

Hodge played his best game yet, great work by him


ONTO NEXT WEEK. KEEP THE SPIRITS UP WE'VE GOT A SECOND CHANCE!!!


ps. pleaseplease robbo don't be injured.

Unfortunate. Reamed by the umpires in the first, blinked and kept missing particularly that second, then they're up and we're down (and also we kept missing and the umps kept being terrible). Hodge vital. Rayner desperate. Neale, Clugga, class. McStay worked hard and despite shanking that one was good, as was Bundy.

Exceptional first. We'll learn and come back and have another go at it next week.

Hopefully just cramp for Robbo because definitely want him in the side.

What a despicable performance, between those SOB's in green and a totally disfunctional forward line the richmond footy club couldn't put a foot wrong. Good luck to them probably favourites for the GF.

I think we improved from last week.

Hodge was huge but the rest of the backline was poor. Answerth was ok.

The whole midfield was solid to brilliant at times. Stef was great in the second half but overall the rucking was poor. Oscar was awful.

Rayner, McStay and Linc attacked the ball really well and we shut down Vlastuin and Houli who killed us 2 weeks back. Hippy just off tonight which happens but worked hard.

We still played way better than what I thought we could going back 6 months.

If Robinson misses there’s half a dozen who could come in. I’d lean towards Keays in a like for like change.

It's fine, really.

We got our colours lowered by an experienced finals side who are now pretty heavy premiership favourites.

Despite the usual bleating you'll get from elements of the community, that's fine. A learning experience that we'll be better off having, and one we can hopefully take into next week for a much improved outing against GWS.

Bad kicking, bad umpiring decisions when the game was on the line (and off the line, that Martin throw, smh) and a Tigers side that punished our every mistake.

Make no mistake, they thoroughly deserved this win. We were bad tonight though, not through Richmond’s doing like they did in R23 but by our own short comings.

I don’t believe Fages will be over reactionary with changes, if any at all. We should have the Giants covered and we’ve shown over the year we don’t have two bad kicking nights in a row.

Lastly, if we do beat the Giants, we get a GF type game as a reward. MCG prelim against the Pies. Win or lose, we gain so much experience from this campaign. Must win against GWS to gain it though.

Go Lions.

McInerney, Andrews, Adams, Charlie all completely terrible. Andrews worst game of the year, McInerney has to be dropped for next week. Rayner on the other hand played his best game for the season.

Very very disappointed.

Need to make a statement to the afl about that blatant martin throw that resulted in a throw just like eddie would. Commentators on channel 7 thought it was a great laugh as it happened to us. We need a full afl apology

We lost our first final in 2003 and went on to win. Now Richmond are the other side of the draw.

Mcstay witheren linc and hipwood just nit good enough and had we kicked those goals I think we might have had them

Well the second half sucked. Tiges were ruthless and irresistible after we’d kicked ourselves out of a lead in the first half. Umpiring genuinely dreadful but can’t blame it for the result at all.

Gotta rebound next week v GWS. Making a prelim still an excellent outcome for the season but I can’t see us winning a prelim against the Pies.

Hodge, Neale, Bundy, Harris we’re easy votes. No idea who the fifth would be.

If we don’t have Robbo and Zorko is tagged out by de Boer we’ll need a midfielder who can provide a spark next week.
