The midfield group especially need to evaluate how they could/will set up differently when the opposition team start to get on top.
    Ive banged on about this a few times but the things you’ve said we’ve seen time and time again with this group. Just these sudden drop offs. How many times can you say we don’t need to review as "it wasn’t us" or "it’s not how we play"? The rate at which we see it I’m beginning to think it is how we play! If reviews aren’t needed because they know what went wrong, then why the hell can’t we notice it live and know how to respond and address it!? I’ve never seen such a bipolar team (and bipolar game for that matter in the grand final). I’m still at a loss understanding how a team can be 3 goals up in a grand final and get pummelled 5 minutes later.

    I think you know the answers but I also think you don't LIKE the answers.
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.

    Pretty sure Caleb and ANB are best mates.

    What a bunch of flogs Melbourne are.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Worst team to lose to.

    There's a reason they're the most hated amongst the players.

    Also the flag unfurling would be further rubbing it in hence they want the round one game.

    As if the loss couldn't hurt more.

    I hope this is burning in our players' guts and drives them in 2022.

    If you kicked five goals and Tom Boyd kicked five goals, Tom Boyd kicked more goals than you.

    I love the fact a ridiculous tune from my time going to Marquee as a young fella, post the ridiculous suburban pubs I went to prior is causing such a stir.

    Next they'll be bashing each other up when someone gets traded and decides to play Everything But The Girl at a house party:



    It's all a bit silly.

    Gee whiz. My better half went to Marquee, a lot back in the day... ships in the night and all that.

    Yes, I really don't understand why a losing Grand Final team would want to play in the game where the flag is unfurled in any year.

    Yeah reading that clarifies his position better than another article I read, that seems to have just selectively quoted just the bit about him saying he doubted they'd need to review the GF.

    The bouncers knew us on a first name basis...not that there's anything wrong with that.

    If you want to know why Richmond were so rubbish in the 90's, half their players were at the Marquee every weekend and were usually the last to leave (along with me and my mates).
    We are the goon squad and we're coming to town. Beep Beep.

    Was there many a time back then too.

    A good mate of mine met his wife there (of all places)! We were only there that night as it was the only time The Motel would not let us in!

    I feel like a thread dedicated to the horrendous places we used to go drinking might be required.

    Thinking of Marquee (not that I went there many times) has started me reminiscing…
    Wake me up when we get to heaven, let me sleep if we're going to hell

    Good luck, for your sake I hope heaven and hell are really there, but I wouldn't hold my breath

    And we all found heaven - 2016 Premiers!
