They both played lock-down instead of loose rebounding roles and the side benefited.
I agree. LMac was good when moved on Betts. However Marley is better than both for that role IMO. Seems to be pretty much automatic selection when fit. Someone has to miss out. JMac was decent I thought as well and overall the defence functioned well. Putting Ats back has been the masterstroke of the year.

I think the majority of our supporters think its time for Brad Scott to move on and I am one of them. And I guess one way to speed this process up is to continue losing games which puts more pressure on our coach. However as much as I want the club to change coaches, i don't want to see my team lose games. As much as losing last night would have put even more pressure on Brad, I love watching my club win games and I am stoked that we finally won a game (even if it lessens the pressure on Brad). And win lose or draw, as a supporter all i want to see is players showing the same intensity they showed last night all year round.

Why is it that our wins are always proviso'd with: "But their opponents were x" by those in the footysphere?

Be nice if we won it on our own merit for once.
Adelaide wasn't much chop. Yet to prove ourselves

ok time for a bit of an overview at 1-3

after high expectations preseason things fell apart with a decimated backline and clearly too many new blokes at once

certainly brissie was a poor game, we really shld have been more competitive

mckay, at this point, is not up to speed and campbell we will have to see
polec and pittard seem good Hall is gonna be good and bad as we all knew
TT looks v likely, Scott can play but say against Brissy they outmuscled us and he is really skinny
In other words he does not HAVE to get a game every week
Whereas LDU does, and I wld play TT as he is more mature physically

The Carey razz worked
Why these players have to be shamed in the press before performing is incredibly disappointing for the NMFC fan, but lets face it, teams are up and down, praps we will get moving

On the crowd talk.

My direct family wasn't able to come.

So I took my sister and two of my nephews. The boys have not been exposed to nearly enough footy. We're basically completely disinterested through the first half.

Some point late in the third they started getting into it and by the end of the game they were making noise of their own.

This is what winning does. It creates interest.

When you serve up the absolute vanilla losing bullshit that we have for the however long it's been now, it's gonna take a toll.

If the club want people to go to the footy they have to work the way out of the hole we're in.

We have around 15-16k absolute rusted on supporters and this run of 60 games for 20 wins is taking a toll.
Good point with only 20 wins from 60 taking there toll. Even worse for Melbourne based supporters as a decent chunk of those wins 20 were in Tassie.

Glad the players and coaches get the win and I’m happy for those who went that got to enjoy it.
I don’t think it even comes close to indicating we can salvage something from the season, the skills and kicking in particular was dismal at times but they showed some fight and that’s pleasing.
We are way behind St Kilda for example who also played a shell of a Hawthorn 22 but managed to get it done.
The crowds are a result of having an administration they treats its members with utter contempt and they will continue to dwindle but hey at least we’ve got 4 games to come in Tassie for ‘on-field’ reasons.

Not convinced we are way behind the Saints. I would have thought we would be way in front of them. In all aspects. and before posters mention the coach the saints coach Richardsons record is no better probably worse .

Who is this "We" you talk about? DarkPhoenix and yourself? :stern look
I've actually never said I wanted the club to keep moving games to Tasmania, but keep pushing that narrative :thumbsu:

I want the club to be sustainable in Melbourne, that isn't going to happen with crowds of 17k.
