Finishing 5th ain't pathetic champ.

Dry your eyes princess.
Nah, disagree because of the context. 2 weeks ago we were equal second and cruising. 2 weeks in a row we have bottled games we were in winning positions in because we didnt want to get in-and-under and do the hard stuff. We have gone from back-to-back to making up the numbers in the space of 2 weeks because we didnt want it hard enough. Its bad.

I really hope we get bungled out in the first round. Maybe then the club will finally go out and find themselves a decent ruckman.

Same problem as last week.

Same problem as throughout the year.

Post-clearance contested possessions.

The team wins the clearance, hacks the ball out to an outnumbered contest, whereby the opposition end up winning possession and get an easy slingslot on the switch into attack, making our defenders look like mushrooms.

Brisbane, Port Adelaide, Geelong, Sydney, Collingwood, Richmond and now Hawthorn - every loss this season has come the same way.


I posted in detail about this almost four months ago now, and frankly, very little has changed.

The Case for Plan B and how it can be done


We now find ourselves on the verge of a completely wasted season.

Hoping that Brisbane can defeat Richmond at the MCG for the first time since 1988.

Hoping that Naitanui won't just somehow return, but be able to play four weeks in a row if the above result doesn't go our way.


All because the club hasn't developed a proper means of countering opposition extras sitting behind the ball.

I am livid. This team is capable of doing so much more.

I know what the result means to us.
Will more than likely cost us a chance to make it to the GF.

But I'm also not ignorant enough to think you can win every game.
Hawthorn are a decent side who are well coached.

All of these "we're pathetic, gutless, lazy, sack the coach" are an embarrassment.

Win lose or draw, I'm still loving last year's premiership.

Also, look up what a fair weather supporter actually means.
