Campbell, Hall,Ahern should never play for us again. EVER.
Hayden needs to be dropped.
Rhyce Shaw needs to stop dumbing it down so much, and have a more detailed game plan. We won’t win anything playing slow kick down the line football.
Goldy, Simpkin, Tarrant, L.Mac only winners on the night. Lost at selection. Campbell is a statue up forward. Can't remember a player who torches the ball as frequently as Hall, it's as if he first picked up an oval ball a week ago. Can surely never play again. The endeavour is there, but too few players are composed enough with ball in hand. Ball still rebounded out of defence far too easily by the opposition. Relying on a long kicking game plan will only beat a handful of teams when your forwards are only taking 2 marks inside 50 in 3 quarters of football. Conceeding 3 goals in the final minute of the first 3 quarters was the difference in the end. We have no ability to play slow down football. Shaw has a lot of areas to address for the rest of the season.
Annoyed tonight, they played with little pressure. Played better but with sloppy disposal. It's official now, Brown is a complete mess - his only contribution was to spoil his team mates on multiple times. We will look massively better with Daw & LDU in next week. Larkey will come but I think too late for this year. Got to keep chipping though considering how short the season is. Hall I'd put in the Brown category now, he is just torching us so much that it's a gift to the opposition. Honestly think if we'd had any two players off the list instead of both of them we would have won.
Not up to AFL standard in so many areas. It was evident how far away we were in perfect conditions last week, and even shithouse conditions tonight couldn't bring our opposition back to even near our level.
That Round 2 win over the Giants is becoming spookily like Rd 1 2006 when we went interstate and belted Port. False dawn of epic proportions. Then we played out our worst season for 20 odd years. Same coming again. So. *******. Bad.
