The result was no worse but the situation different
Home game and crowd v Away game but no crowd
Players from last year both had to deal with covid 19 looming large but maybe Hawks faired better than our guys
While we haven't played well lets put our first 4 games in to perspective :
Round 1 : Lost to sydney at home, they are currently 2nd (finals team)
Round 2 : Got screwed by the umps to Geelong away, they are currently 8th (finals team)
Round 3 : Beat Collingwood away during the covid reschedule mess, they are 13th (some were thinking a finals team but yeah, nah)
Round 4 : Lost to Bulldogs away (top 4 team)
If that isn't the definition of a very hard first 4 games of the season I don't know what is.
We don't have to watch crap footy at fricken Mars stadium again. How is it meant to be good for the game if the match resorts to king of the pack because the wind blows away your chance at accurate kicking?
