    I don't disagree with this- having your #1 defender out has got to bring concern.

    Everything that could have gone wrong in that first quarter, did. We went into our shells and played scared (like Port from last round), while they were buoyed and playing with complete confidence.

    WC, Hawthorn and NM are a great case study for how much the game is played between the ears. A little bit of belief and within a week both looked like completely different outfits. WC had that stripped away for a week and look back to rock bottom.

    But no one is going to give up on the season while it is still live and you are well in the hunt.

    Nothing went right leading into the game and that snowballed with a disastrous first quarter. I am sure everyone who has played sport has had those games- where nothing seems to be going right. It is incredibly hard to right the ship.

    Three or four wins for the rest of the year is the difference between 6th or something like 12th. So even.

    Re: Goodbye Season 2024

    This season has a few more twists and turns to come, in this second half.
    Good stories in Freijah and Lobb being able to perform coming into new positions.
    I like the look of Freijah, he is a really good natural footballer. Good mark, knows how to find the ball and kicks within his means.

    Lobb grabbing the Full back position and performing really well has been a blessing. He does have the physical traits to play there, just need to work on his tank to stay there for the full game. What a great surprise.

    I think Bramble needs a mention as well. I did not see a howling clanger this game against Carlton. So he is starting to have some consistency with his game.

    I love Darcy's competitiveness. Even the mark on the Goal line ( which they had to review) showed how much he wants it. i reackon 2 more presasons, we are going to have a formidable fwd ruck. Him and English are going to be hard to match . s

    Shouldn’t take much to believe after that great win with so many quality players out.

    I do wish we didn’t have to play Geelong at Sedat park though. But what a confidence builder a win down there would be!

    Beating Geelong at Geelong has exactly the same importance as beating Port in Adelaide.. there I said it. Make of it what you will.

    An EF against Gold Coast at Marvel would be mint.
    But then again, I'm an Internet poster and Bevo is a premiership coach so draw your own conclusions.

    So not important then? Clearly the players did not think beating Port was important!
