I feel too sick in the stomach to comment. Out played or out coached?? What happened after the first quarter?

Outplayed. The Slime have a chance to finish minor premiers as Port at their home looks a bridge too far after Friday night. And they'll delight in denying us(as we would have in their situation).

Beaten by our own mistakes. Too many turnovers. What's happened to our skill levels?

We are no threat to anyone at this stage.
Please don't someone come on here and say it didn't matter if we lost this one. We were trying but weren't good enough.
Our forward line is a mess and we can't maintain scoreboard pressure even after a start like that.

We played one quarter of attractive footy.
Losing sucks.
Nice to have Luke back.
We could easily have won it.
Johnno looked good.
Mayne should kick straight.

What has coaching got to do with it? We took 14 marks inside 50m and couldn't kick a big enough score to win.

We turned the ball over incessantly and some players couldn't hit the side of a barn door when kicking for goal from <40m.

So upset & frustrated! What the beep's going on Freo? This is the sick feeling of old. Am trying to stay upbeat, I'm really trying.

So Mont, what was the experiment?

And sorry, I for one do f'n care!

We're limping towards the finals. You think it will just magically turn around in a few weeks time?

I don't know what happened except that we are consistent in our approach to all games.
If we can score 10 goals in the first quarter we are in with a show of winning, because we struggle to score in other quarters.
I'm really worried about our finals chances we seemed to have a different game after quarter time, it does not auger well.

The hand balling coach needs to be sacked.

That we have no hope of playing in the GF on today and last weeks efforts and almost as bad, Fyfe will not take out the Brownlow. Gutted.

That it IS possible for us to kick 12 goals and lose. This worries me, a lot.

We were all over them for a half but couldn't hit the scoreboard in the second, and fluffed our chances in the third. It was almost as if we were missing two of our best three forwards!

We got a bit run over in the last which is not unexpected after a Derby and North's marshmallow schedule the last few weeks.

Gameplay is fine. If anything, we tried too hard to play on and fluffed a few handball in the middle that led to costly turnovers.
