On Saturday we comfortably beat Richmond for clearances and contested possessions but were thrashed. This would seem to be an anomaly but I think it highlights our biggest problem: we have too many players chasing contested possessions and not enough making position to receive possession. We win possession in a pack situation and we don't have somebody on the move 5 metres from the pack to receive a handball and set up play so we handball to somebody standing still in the same pack; we don't have players breaking to the opposite flank to switch play so we kick down the line. Our disposal efficiency is relatively low, but this is because we are continually disposing under pressure and trying to pinpoint passes to players surrounded by opposition players.
I had this exact thought while watching the game. Richmond seemed to always have an option to handball to in the open, often 5 metres ahead of the contest which led to fast ball movement and less pressured forward 50 deliveries.

Hey, how about you get f’ed, and while you're at it fu** off to your own board you pointless waste of oxygen. I don't really give a fu** what you think you saw no one asked you to come in here so just fu** off.

Dusty is a whining b*tch.

Considering what his old man came from to have a whiny little campaigner like that crying for frees when he should be able to win the ball on his own is piss weak. Someone needs to drill some of his knee caps.

A bit like you shitty little oppo campaigners. Anyone from our board point out something like that on your board and we'd get banned you little fu**. Good thing this is the Internet and not real life cos if it was you might not wake up in hospital. I'd just feed you to my mates pigs.

Never speak to me again on this board, take a hint from your own user name and fu** the fu** off before I decide to find out where you live.
Gold ferbs.

I don’t understand why he’s using a alt account, a fight between two opposition supporters, on the north board, will hopefully lighten up the mood around here.
i say let them go at it..
Apologies, I have nothing further to add.

But you started off so strong, don’t give up now... Surely you can dig up another one for the sake of the feral feline competition?
Unfortunately, despite Caddys horrendous musk, my specialties lie with Hawthorn.
I really dont think about Richmond enough.

One of the coaches gave Pickett best on ground! Either Picket was doing a job that Shaw had no idea about, or Shaw is taking the piss giving him 5.

The biggest crime out of that is Eggmolesse-Smith was BOG.

Dunno about that, he looks really good. So assured with the ball and excellent disposal.
Mate, playing 2020 North Melbourne is like perma beer goggles when you watch opposition players.

When the NMFC filter is removed you'll see Eggles is actually a 5'6" 120kg former LAN gamer named Steve.

He's a good player - I posted before the game on the trade thread if he's gettable, we should look at it - we beat Richmond in the VFL last year, but Eggmolesse-Smith was best on ground in a losing side, ran the game from HB. Has all the qualities our HBs don't

D.E.S. was popular in the Kerridge. Some good judges there.

Not really. The idea is to pick a bog-average player who plays out of his skin against us, not pick a talented young player early in their career.
(In Southern accent and grabbing imaginary braces) Now, for all the mighty fine people out there in the bigfooty universe sur, I propose some of us were ignorant in that there regard and we took it in good faith that exibit A was not a quality player, I’m sure the prosecution has made the mistake before and we would wish the man not to be judged on a singular mistake, (and by default his score for the round erased)

We tried plan B on Saturday night. We were flicking the ball around by hand then trying attacking kicks through their press. Very different to previous weeks. It reeked of a team receiving mixed/confusing messages from the coaching staff. Our players were also nowhere near skilled enough to pull it off. What has become really apparent is how much Cunners papers over the cracks in our list/gameplan. He's just so damn good at winning the ball, drawing a tackler and then releasing the ball by hand to a team mate in space.
Was confused about criticism directed at Pittard in recent weeks, but I saw why on the weekend. He was just non-competitive on multiple occasions. From a senior bloke (and one who had a ripper year last year,) it's simply not good enough.
Hall cops a lot of flack for poor disposal (and rightfully so,) but at least he's having a crack.
I actually think we went into the Tigers game with the same plan that dismantled Port Adelaide in R22 , just after the Geelong debacle. Unfortunately, at the weekend, we were in “Geelong debacle” mode. If we can actually field a team this weekend against Carlton, we might have a better chance of flicking the switch. This match could prove to be a real watershed moment. We’ve been flogging the Blues by 70+ every time over the past 5 years. That trend is most likely going to be reversed by about 100 points, if the past 5 games are any guideline, unfortunately.

We have 10 of our best 22 on the injury list. I just can't see us winning.

At least, our general expectations have well and truly been tempered at this stage. I think a few of us went into the Richmond game with some hopes of a rebound. Any shred of confidence has now been well and truly knocked on the head. At least, now we can focus our attention on the positives, without really worrying about the scoreboard- Lol, as if that’s ever going to happen come game-day...
