    That I’m not cut out travelling to games and watching the lack lustre, heartless performances we continue to dish up.
    It's better to die on our feet than live on our knees.

    1. The players aren’t playing for Bevo or listening to him
    2. Goal kicking and skills are not improving - whose responsibility is this
    3. If this continues, some good players will leave, our picks and salary cap space won’t attract players and we will be sprinting into a rebuild sooner than anyone thought possible

    1. We don’t just look shit against contenders, half a bottom 4 team can even do that to us.
    2. We are slow. Slow of mind. Slow physically. Slow to change a game plan that other teams know how to beat.
    3. A week is a long time in footy. Two weeks of playing like that is an eternity. We are at rock bottom, but I guess the only way is up?

    1. We are going to get out-run by most teams
    2. Sam Darcy is going to be a superstar any position he plays
    3. We have a decision to make - 'good' players or 'effort' players, because right now (apart from Bont) it's an either/or proposition

    Keen to hear more about that one, Mofra. Agree that he has a big future but I thought he was a passenger tonight.

    Darcy shouldn't be playing full stop.

    Got his hands to it plenty of times.
    Compared to most 210cm kids who have had half of a pre-season for their entire careers, he's a mile ahead of where he should be.

    Was it Sam’s kick, mark or handball that lead you to make this call?

    1. A few players appear to have hit the down slope of their careers at the same time.
    2. English will be fine as a ruck.
    3. Bevo may be out of salty dogs.

    1. We look slow and unfit in round 2
    2. All the problem of last year are magnified, doesn?t look like anything has improved in the off-season
    3. It?s going to be a very long season

    1. We have no system across the three lines, and no system connecting those lines e.g. shocking delivery to the forwards.

    2. We are slow, unfit and the bereft of confidence. Our skills have seriously gone backwards, eg unforced errors by foot.

    3. West and Garcia stay. Neither are elite players but relative to the rest the side, they bring elite effort and hardness.
    The fight is here; I need ammunition, not a ride.

    Yes we are going places with him as ruck. Maybe he shaded Marshall slightly in the stats but Marshall way more influential in the result but hey English in only 26.
