Round 11 2014.....Were still a pretty good side that year but got flogged by 110 points to the Swans.
We're back already. More info & New Features »
The 160 point loss to Hawthorn in 92 gets a fair mention.Anzac day 2010. The day I knew knights was done
Adelaide and saints losses in 2015. When you knew the players were gone and hird was done
Rd 1&2 This year were an abomination too.
Much doubt around worsfold set in those 2 rounds
Last year's PF
Won 19 games for the year, looked to be the dominant team. Were highly consistent, to the point where watching our games became pointless because you knew what was coming. And going into a preliminary final, a shot at B2B beckoning, you'd reckon it's not going to be the game where you don't show up. Perhaps a game where things don't quite come off and the opponent is very good (as they were), and we lose. But to be completely obliterated in the first half? Bitterly disappointing.
There's been worse pure performances. But not many top the disappointment of that.
Undoubtedly the most painful. But in terms of woeful capitulations, the Sydney shellacking of 1987, Hawk hammering in 1992, Adelaide annihalation in the 2009 Elimination Final and the 100+ point loss to a mediocre Saints outfit just a few years back were pretty dispiriting.Likewise, Carlton beating us in the 99 prelim. I still can't watch that match.
Didn't North Melbourne also choke against West Coast after the siren that year too?2013 had a couple of rage-worthy performances.
Round 9 2013 - up by 30 midway through the last, Kerridge and Petrenko combine for 4 last quarter goals to steal the win (Sam ******* Kerridge had 6 second half goals)
Round 11 we kicked 4.2 in the first, 4.1 for the following 3 quarters as Gold Coast reeled us in and won
Round 13 we kicked 4.5.29 in Perth (although at least Freo were in beast mode that year).
Round 16 - 5 goals up late in the 3rd quarter v Brisbane, reeled in and lose by 12 .
Hugely frustrating year with some of the worst mentality/leadership I've seen in any team ever. Don't forget NicNat and Bartel and the Carlton game either.
