...are rubbish. How can you not beat a Sydney team without Buddy or Tippett, and who lost Rohan and Richards during the game?

Sad really, as I've always seen them as the Adelaide Freo. I've put myself in Hinkley's shoes and tried to work out what I would do - moving Boak out of the middle, sticking W√ľndergard deep forward and running Hoff along the back wing was worth a try, but it isn't working. Polack was the mobile run-through guy they haven't been able to replace, Hartlett is good off the boot, but he runs like an Edsel. Paddy should've made a huge difference, but they don't know where to plunk him. All in all, their weaknesses as players, and collectively as a team, are just proving to be too easy to exploit.

But in all fairness, the bounce of the ball, the small 1%'rs just haven't fallen their way - game after game, which says to me they're done. If you can't manufacture gaining that 1% you're cactus (no matter how much effort you put to it).

But, as I tell myself, they did this to us in 2008 - first game, Purple Haze game at home with the purple jumpers/white anchors (everyone's favourite special jumper) - and Port come over and kick 10 in the third. The rest of the season - the entire rest of the season - was struggling against the suction of water spinning around at the bottom of the toilet bowl. We did that to them this year - Smiley would shrug and call it karma (with a smile).

That 10 goal 3rd quarter still gives me nightmares! It came flooding back in last year's final at Subi after we kicked our 10th behind for the quarter!!!

Can't make the finals but still reckon they'll cause a few headaches to those that can before the year is out.

CA, if Port was to inflict some damage, you would've thought that they should have done it last night. Sydney was ripe for the picking with all their injuries and suspensions, yet they couldn't get it done...so whilst there may be times where they will click, given last night's display, gotta wonder when that will happen...

Promised so much and delivered so little. It's weird... look at the Toast, promised so little and delivered so much.

hope, that is. False hope, perhaps.

Pooooort looked to be a real threat going on last year's form. They were quick and precise. I reckon they're weak, myself.

Be nice if they put their cue in the rack in Rd 23, Agarn.

That'll be the game they suddenly rediscover their form.

Paddy Ryder had 3 disposals - Whats the story there?
Hes either still injured or nor interested. His effort was pathetic last night up against a first gamer

Sounds like he's vying for the All Australian ruckman spot.

For whatever reason they have lost their dash through the midfield. They hurt a lot of teams by quickly getting the ball through the middle, essentially playing on with each mark. Now they stop and lose momentum.

Interesting stat to come out of last night was Port winning inside 50s 52-48, but losing marks inside 50 14-9. Same number of scoring shots. Maybe another factor in Port's form drop is their mids not being able to convert. Gray, Wines and Boak had plenty of goals between them last year.

Zorro, hopefully that rack is large enough to accommodate two cues.
