Answerth has had three straight shockers and he gets picked. Bastinac playing the house down, Keays available and Mathieson good enough for a game. Team selection cost us. Rayner?? When did he deliver? Wasn’t he supposed to be a possible ‘Finals Specialist?’
Well said.

As much as I despised the umpiring effort (particularly razor Ray trying to insert himself on the game wherever possible), Hipwoods snap in the last quarter was off a clear throw, and Andrews should have been called holding the ball at the start of the last also.

Dominate inside 50s like that and fail to score (and allow intercept marks) and you’re asking for trouble; it happened both last week and this week.

3-4 games we kicked goals in the last 2 minutes to steal the game.. unfortunately we are on the wrong side this week. Forward line can definitely improve however much of that comes from our meterage style of play.

Hurts to lose when we were the better team on the night, however we are quick to forget where we were 12 months ago. A season far exceeding all expectations- and now we go into 2020 with genuine premiership aspirations.

Hope you don't mind the intrusion, but just wanna say how much I admire the Lions. Their fighting spirit and pressure was something to behold, puts us to shame. They have the raw material to be a champion team, just need some more experience. Could, maybe should, have won tonight, but coming from 15th to 2nd and almost making a prelim is a mighty effort. Should be a real contender next year, see you guys then!

Toby greene the grub cheat should never have played

Channel 7 commentary is just dreadful
Give me eddie any day

We really need a power forward. Someone who can take a grab. No more pinch hitters.

Feel so deflated
Hope gws go on and do a few nice season ending numbers next week on themselves

Would love to see Hodgey go around again.

We wouldn't have been within a chance of goal if Whitfield had had his usual game rather than 7 effective disposals
Robbo played his best game and gave everything , but just kick it along the ground rather than in the air because it went to the opposition nearly every time.

Full of it.

Aside from one decent mark in the last quarter, epitomised the definition of plodder.

Rayner did his usual one or two good things and then dropping simple marks and other basic fundamentals.

McCarthy non existent again, Bailey and Answerth barely sighted and let’s not pretend any of this is anything new, but yep, let’s not make any changes.

Not blaming umpires or GWS, we got our fair share of free kicks and they played fair and hard, we let it slip. It was our home final, can’t help but say that was a real lost opportunity, yet again we didn’t take our chances. Very hard to finish 2nd on the ladder in current competition and I did expect us win at least one final. Very deflating.

PS Stefan Martin take a bow.

Correct. We should be looking to draft real full forward.
