Freo fans were dissing the squiggle for the same reason when they were good.
The reason why Fremantle fans didn't believe is that they really hoped their gameplan would stack up despite all evidence. My criticism with final siren isn't with his model, it's with his usage of the term "gameplan" as I said before, it's not completely true that a side which scores less scores less because of a defensive mindset. Final siren acknowledged this in his response in saying that what unites Fremantle and Richmond is a lack of scoring, which means they have to attack perfectly to win, which they don't anyway. That is true but that's not a facet of gameplan.
As I remarked earlier, I completely accept Richmond's attacking woes will hurt them, it's why I agree with the squiggle that Richmond has a chance against the giants but can't beat the crows, a fear I've voiced in this thread before.
But but but we ease up when we are in front which is why we don't score as much'
