Like I said I enjoy what the PR marketing team churn out on a weekly basis especially after a embarrassing defeat like Saturday as it's normally quite amusing.

But wtf is this..not even I predicted that. Sell it to Richmonds marketing team FFS?!

Year is mostly cooked. Should be 4-0 the only side that would be. Instead we are sitting 2-2 making a trip to Perth to play WCE.
Before this season I thought we could be 0 : 4 , not 4 : 4 and most had us middling and all had us missing finals. So where do you get this 4:4 from?
We lost Wingard and Polly and it will take a while for our new recruits to gain consistency or for us to trade in some more players to replace them. I thought this would be somewhat of a down year.
Not to say I’m not filthy, because I am, but no one would have had us at 4:4

Lost to Bris because of an inability to kick simple shots and again lost a close game. In front late and gave the game up from a winning position.

Came up against a Richmond side missing so many key players, didn’t capitalise and again lost a close game (that should’ve been close)

I don’t care where we were pre season or what people predicted. Fact is as explained above both of those games we should have won.

Hence that is why I said 4-0. Come the end of the year those losses may very well be the difference between playing finals and not.

What about Gold Coast at home in Round 9? Could losing that one be the GWS 2012 game we're crying out for???
No. His carcass will still rock up next game.

We simply can't afford it.

After the AFL gave us a handout post the chocco sacking and money down the drain they will never make that same call again.

I thought we'd be 2-2.

But I didn't expect we'd be playing a Richmond minus Cotchin, Riewoldt, Rance and Martin.

I also didn't expect Melbourne would be as incredibly under prepared as they were.

So we got a bonus win, capitalizing on the Dees. We scraped over the line against a terrible Carlton side. We then blew 3 qtrs of complete dominance against Brisbane not getting the win, and then our gameplan was completely dismantled by a shell of a Richmond side.

We may have expected 2-2, but we undoubtedly should be 4-0 with how the season has panned out.

We now play the 2 grand finalists in the next 3 week's, both games away from home, and it's going to be incredibly ugly.

Do you mean 4-0?

I have decided that I won't be cashing in the one game a year I'm entitled to as an interstate supporter. I'm sure I can find something more enjoyable to do with my Friday night.
You coward!

If I can go to the Gabba along with three Lions supporting friends who poured crap on me all night, and watch our team lose a win-able game, then you can damn well go watch them lose a lose-able one!

That’s what I call fight.

NUFC, YES.
Why sren’t Our senior players getting the heat? Ken can take some responsibility but why do Westy Jonas Wines Ebert Gray etc get away with being flakey and pathetic?
Ken keeps backing, picking, promoting and rewarding them.

It’s only been John Butcher and Chad Wingard who have ever copped it in the neck because reasons.

You feel like a broom is coming through the next 18 months, we will have a new coach and a vastly different team then.

Gray sadly looks like an old man. Perhaps his personal issues haven't helped him recently, just looks like his body is shot, his career is coming to a close quicker than expected.

The other two mentioned re just average Joe's nowadays.

The point of no return...

R13 2016, a 6-6 Port Adelaide visits the 2-10 dockers with the season well and truly on the line. Justin Westhoff literally doesnt touch it (or maybe he touched it once or twice to be fair) in the first half of another thoroughly disappointing loss that killed our season.

Justin Westhoff played the next week! That is when it was obvious Hinkley truly wasn't prepared to hold senior players to account and was done as a coach!

Probably tells you a little bit about how the club approached the game. Despite all the talk during the week about paying Richmond the respect they deserve, clearly the club had ticked this one off as a certainty and thought they’d make a little video to go along with the win.

They did it last week too.
