    1 - Don't believe the media
    2 - We can kick straight
    3 - It's way too early to be speculating on a coaching change.

    1. The players will get up for a coach under pressure. But aren’t able to bring the requisite level of commitment week to week. Not sustainable.

    2. They struck a rythmn tonight with goal kicking, sublime performance on that front. The golf swing, blindfolds et al work.

    3. Sam Darcy is the real deal.

    1. Sam Darcy might just win the Rising Star this year.
    2. If tonight was Bailey Dale's response, and last week was Macrae's, I can't wait to see Caleb Daniel get another crack.
    3. There will be selection headaches this week.

    1. A great win but Freo and its band of ferals await.
    2. Sam Darcy is going to be a nightmare for defenders.
    3. We needed that win.

    1. The season has a long way to go. Supporters and Media calling for blood have rocks in their heads - Wait for the season end to assess performance.

    2. Naughton is a forward

    3. Team effort tonight

    1. The Saints have the worst list in the AFL.
    2. Maybe Lobb has a future
    3. Garcia is a keeper.

    1. Adam Treloar cares deeply for this football club. He's become more Bulldog than Magpie this year, if there was ever any doubt.
    2. I saw Ed Richards the midfielder for the first time and I liked it very much.
    3. The Saints do not have a top 8 list.
    But then again, I'm an Internet poster and Bevo is a premiership coach so draw your own conclusions.

    1. Intestinal fortitude is rare. Beveridge has it.
    2. There's disharmony down at the kennel according to some. Obviously not according to Macrae and Dale's response tonight.
    3. I'm a galoot for not going tonight. Took the soft option on the couch. Morning swim at Willy for me this week.

    1. If a team is off the boil, we can put them to the sword. Time to win against sides that bring their A game.

    2. Richards adds a different element to the midfield and should spend plenty of time there now.

    3. Williams needs a spell, bring back Caleb.

    1. Dogs some value at $51 for flag during the week
    2. Still are at $41 now
    3. We did this without Jamarra, Libba and Daniel. Let?s get our s#it together boys and give this comp a shake

    Dale needs to be allowed to wander forward.
    Take Weightman off after 1/4 time :-)
    Macrae is still our connector.
    Bring back the biff

    1. Premiership coaches are a rare and very valuable commodity. Bevo was completely unfazed by the media rubbish and the FFA (Fractious Fans Alliance.) The man can coach.

    2. Buku Khamis is a keeper.

    3. Garcia can football

    Bailey Dale can have as much influence on a match as the Bont or Libba. Dynamic today, created scoring opportunities out of nothing while being the defensive wall.

    Our best football this year is better than it was in either of the previous two years. The challenge is to find the consistency.

    Richards and Garcia can improve us through the guts. Going to be a tough few weeks for the selectors and coaches to find the right mix and rotations.

    1 I've been critical of our depth and don't think it is where it needs to be for long enough, but tonight I learned it can hold up if it sticks to plan and plays committed football

    2. While we still have some shaky moments, if teams allow us to move the ball quickly and we take the quick options we can get speed on the footy and get it down the ground quickly enough to trouble them

    3. A mix of players helping out in the midfield can work and is something we need to see more of
