    1. Stupid decisions hurt. Adams HTB & Clokes torp...
    2. We are in a very dangerous place this season now.
    3. The kids will be ok.

    1. We're actually not that good.
    2. We're the only club that could gift Taylor 5 goals.
    3. Our game plan of happy handball is crap.

    Some solid BF-esque melting.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    1. Geelong could win the spoon and still beat us twice in a season. They plan their season around the 8 points they get against us.

    2. The umpires desperately wanted to make sure we don't don't break a decade long streak. They were practically barracking Geelong home.

    3. Our field kicking is almost as bad as our goal kicking. Which is hard to comprehend.

    How was that play on? He went back on the mark and held the back for 5 seconds. Even in Geelong that was a disgrace.

    How was Menzel's play on, not. How did Selwood get two dodgy frees in the last. How did we not get frees in the last. How was Bob paid holding the ball when he legally disposed of it. And so on.

    Cheating I'd say, if I had an educated guess.

    1/ Last year we were super even with solid contributions by all, we aren't getting that this year.

    2/ The lack on intensity in the 2nd and 4th quarters was horrid.

    3/ Lin Jong is easily in our best 22... One of the few in our team that's improved on 2016 output.

    We haven't looked good all year besides a quarter here and a quarter there.

    He needs to put in 4 quarters. Only had 4 touches in the last, but agree overall he was good.

    1. Can't play Cloke and jack in the one team
    2. We are just to inconsistent, it's frustrating to say the least .
    3. Last year we were even, but were carrying a few passengers this year

    We may end up 10th or 11th by Monday.
    Dangerfield is very good (when no-one runs with him or through him), Selwood, like the Pygmy three-toed sloth,
    is a highly protected species.
    A poor umpiring decision which turns a game will one day see a result challenged in Court.

    He probably gets buggered from carrying some of his team mates. He was sensational tonight and has been a shining light all season. It could be said that Bont rarely plays four quarters.
    I thought I was wrong once but I was mistaken.

    That "crap" gameplan won us a premiership.
