    It comes down to work rate. Bulldogs, Crows, Eagles etc all work 10 times as hard off the half back line, they create opportunities to score and have excellent disposal with very little turnovers.

    Fremantle just seem to run themselves into pressure with every possession they have, players like Sutcliffe do it constantly and guess what it creates turnover, you cannot win a game of footy if your basic skills and work rate are horrible.

    Its just horrible to watch everytime a freo player gets the ball near the half back line its handball then another handball (into congestion) then turnover from the kick that comes out. It is seriously the worst footy ive ever seen from any side in my 28 years of watching footy.

    Ross mentioned before the season started that we need to go back to "giving great effort" - the mantra that took us to a GF in 2013.

    After round two it appears the players haven't got the message...

    Despite being:

    No 1 for Clearances
    2nd best for DE%
    Better than average clangers
    8th for uncontested ball

    We are:

    Worst in the comp for Goals kicked
    Worst for opponent goals kicked
    2nd worst for i50s

    Primarily because we are:

    Worst in the comp for tackles (By a long way)
    Worst in the comp for opponent DE%
    Worst for opponent bounces
    Worst for Cont Poss
    Worst for opponent cont Marks


    So basically, we're not winning the hard ball and we're not applying pressure when we don't have the ball. And when we do get the ball, we're using it effectively, but it's not ending up in our forward 50.

    A lot of this can be explained by the poor gameplan. Particularly our inability to generate i50s. But how much of it is players not running hard enough and not going hard enough at the ball?

    From round 3 onwards, the stats I'll be looking out for are contested possessions, tackles, pressure acts and opponent DE%. When they improve, we will at least know we're giving great effort.
