He's not the reason we have lost tonight
He's one of them.
Hes one of about 15 mate. They were all rocks and diamonds. Simona and Teddy dropped the ball 3 times each, Rowdy similar. The forwards outplayed and a lot of players didnt mark up in defence.

Agree on that call, BMM was one of the few who straightened our attack in the second half and was a handful. More inclined to stick Anasta at 7. Sirro is good but needs to be wider of the ruck in attack IMO.

I dont think potter was teaching them training to overrun the ball constantly and crab sideways .

Marshall did nothing again! Thought he would have lifted for last game at this ground! Guess not.

Terrible defense too. He may not have his own roster but he has some explaining to do.

Potter isn't the one out there throwing the ball to nobody, slipping over and opening up gaps and/or giving away stupid penalties and I can guarantee he doesn't tell them to do that either.

Our 5th tackle options have been our failing for a long time, no patience. It seemed to be a good night for grubbers, but we kept going to the air in the 2nd half.

You're right there. It was a team performance that loss.

Not really. I saw 16 that contributed more.

Overall I thought we were good but bad hands killed us in the end.

ERRORS ERRORS ERRORS. basic errors cost us that. SIXTEEN in a game is abysmal, drop balls everywhere. Tackling defence was actually good with only 11 missed tackles but gee positional defense needs work. Too many holes...

We fix those two up and that was very winnable, like a lot of games this year. Especially that Dragons one.

I reckon Buchanan was probably our best tonight. Woods and Blair were effective. BMM needs more gametime as he straightened our attack up in the second half. Simona and Lawrence looked dangerous but poor handling let them down at crucial times.

What does he tell them to do then? Whatever it is it's not effective.

haha did you even watch the game? We werent even close to being good overall. We did a couple of good things but that was the performance of a side that will go close to the spoon.

Definitely Anasta at half, we need direction.

We certainly don't know what a "repeat set" is.

After that second half non-performance they're still in the race for the spoon. What else can I say other than it was a very piss poor effort by all concerned?

It fills my heart with warmth to see Benji, Blair and co laughing and carrying on with their opposition bros after just getting their butts handed to them after a shocking display of professional football.

There's more care from a teams players and its results going on every weekend in park footy around this country then what goes on with this million dollars worth of muppets that run out on the field at a national level each week..

disgraceful.

Youve gotta love how these players feel the loss like the fans do.

Blair 3. Simona 2. Buchanan 1.
