A little
Think the dogs/Hawthorn actually have more wins against the top 8 than us this year (if Adelaide finish 8th it artificially props our record up)

If we draw Geelong we would play at the G 2/3 games, potentially 3/4 if we make the GF?

Have to hope that has some sort of benefit
Freo have more wins against them than us :sick:

Well, goodbye top 2 and we have no one but ourselves to blame.

Play 1 quarter vs Brisbane
Get flogged by the biggest bipolar team in Port at home
Get flogged by a bottom 4 team in Sydney
Lose to Collingwood after being up by ~3 goals at 3QT and not even scoring in the 4th
Have a blistering first quarter against Richmond and then go to s**t until the last 10minutes of the game
Had a feeling some of those losses would bite us on the *** at seasons end. A very valuable lesson for some of the players who perhaps got a bit ahead of themselves at different times during the season. They have the job ahead of themselves now so we will find out what they're made of over the next few weeks.

Close losses are always hard to take, but I'm glad we didn't get smashed, showed we were competitive at the G against the Tiges, were leading by like 24 and almost pinched it. Goes without saying we MUST beat Hawthorn, and we should, to even get top 4. Still proud of the boys, Richmond were good.

We absolutely deserved to lose, and it's 100% on Simpson

When you let Dusty have 30 possessions to 3 quarter time and absolutely an utterly refuse to make a change and tighten up, you need your head read.

Melting hard
Hutchings was injured so he put Redden on him.

You want Simmo to put the boots on.

Its the opposite of last year, and why I lack a lot of confidence in us making it to the big dance again this year.
Yes but unlike last year, we have played them all away. Brissy at their home ground week 1 off limited preseason.

Geelong at their s**thole where we have won once in our existence.

Richmond in the rain. Collingwood we beat at the G and lost by a point two men down.

It’s not as bad as it sounds.

Was at the game, some of the crowd oh my

This prick behind me, booed every free we had, and sarcastically carried on for each one they had as if it was the only one they had for the whole game, even booing out on the fulls??

You get a few of these special idiots at every game, his son will grow to be like him, just as he ( the prick) is most likely like his father.

The booing after that guy landed on willies back .... it was a great tackle apparently 🙄

Just found out hutchings was injured, I guess if there’s one player who can go about unnoticed it’s him. Makes me feel better about the loss knowing we were short

No, I want Simpson to instruct a midfielder to play tight and do a job

Its not E=MC2

If their best mid is clearly getting off the chain, don't put your head in the sand and hope it will work out, Clamp down.

Ideally, after quarter time Simpson should have sent Yeo to Martin with a job

He didn't

That's falls on his head, and his head alone

Jeese there's some children around here today, I'm proud of the way the boys fought back at the end.
Only a couple brain fades from our defenders away from winning that.
Yep, we really have our share of fair weather supporters.

We played the premiership favourites on their home ground, were a
Man down for the majority of the game and lost by a kick.

Dusty Martin who is one of the best players in the comp has a good
game and that can't happen. Must be the coaches fault.

******* embarrassing.

Yeo was on Martin most of the game and was outplayed.
It does happen you know.

We can lose a game to a better side on the day and not blame the coaches or the umpires.

If Hutch has done his hammy again we may not take the risk on playing him again this year. We will need a tagger for the finals ........ is Nelson up to it?
