Though plenty of people had already commented both in this thread and another, and because this was the first opportunity I've had to say this, it bears repeating: Logue's effort was outstanding and a highlight of my evening, especially because it unfolded in front of me.

I also liked the desperation in the last couple of minutes of the game, Lobb's running with a subluxed shoulder, and how Andy Brayshaw toughs it out at the end of games.

Now that's off my chest, I'm going back to watching the Logue chase & tackle for the fifth time this morning.

The bad? Well, plenty have already replied, so that'll do.

The good
The guys gave great effort and we won.

The bad
Whingers and front runners stayed away meaning the crowd was low in numbers.

You’re either with us or you aren’t.

All posters have a point. Yes the game was won by the narrowest of margins against a team at the same position on the ladder but crikey, that method won't win you a premiership.

We did have the following players out:
Fyfe, Taberner, Hogan, Pearce, S. Hill and Cox.

A win puts a smile on your face but 10th-13th on the ladder is about where the team deserves to be. So if people think that's acceptable, roll on another 25 years of it.

The good:
We beat the team that thrashed West Coast a few weeks ago.
Sandi taking a mark
Blakely in the midfield.
Holding on in that last minute.
Logue looked better.

The bad:
First 2 quarters absolutely boring.
Darcy missing a gimme set shot.
Allowing Sydney to control the game in the 2nd quarter.
Sydney were better around the stoppages.

The good
The players seemed to give a sh** about the game. I’m loath to use the word “effort” because I’m not on board with Ross’”E” word, but too many times in the past few years I’ve seen our boys run out looking bored and disaffected. One of the things I really wanted to see this year was our boys go out and have a crack, and I feel like I saw that in spades last night.
Logue - again giving glimpses of what a beast he can be.
Brayshaw - emerging as a real player this year, and this game was another standout.
Sandi - love him. Always better when he’s angry, and he looked angry.
Lobb - every time he goes forward his actions clearly make the statement of “I told you I wanted to be a forward, I told you. Play me here, you bastards!”

The not so good:
Scrappy low scoring footy on a good night against weak opposition. Should not have been so close and very lucky to get a win. I didn’t THINK we would win, but I EXPECT better.
Wilson - has looked off all year. Are they trying to make him a lockdown small defender because that would be criminal. Let Duman/Nyhuis/Hamling cover the smalls. Don’t waste one of the AFL’s most damaging kicks.
McCarthy - lead up well, but is a confidence player, and after dropping that chest mark early slipped out of the game.
Cera - I can see the idea, give him the Mundy path of learning the game off halfback before swinging him into the middle but it doesn’t seem to be working for him. Might be better letting him dominate some clearance work in the WAFL than having him jog out games at half back in the bigs.

The good: the tremendous fight our boys showed in the last 5 minutes of the game.

The bad: the bloke with the bad BO who nestled his armpit right into my face for the packed train ride back to the city after the game.

Good:

Brayshaw, future Captain.
I find myself going to games to watch our youngsters. I actually quite enjoy it.

Bad:

Injury-riddled season.
My own expectations were low, should I have more 'faith'???

Quite possibly, Noddy, it was those who believe the club is going backwards who stayed away.

No one has mentioned Ed for the winning point - so, he's not our hero from last night?

I have no problem with supporters not coming to the game because of the time and weather as the games are scheduled for TV not supporters.
I will never go to a Thursday night game.
That does not mean that I don't support or I have given up on the team.

So, Mac, you are super supporter number 1, but you won't go to watch a Thursday night game, however the supporters who don't want to show support for Lyon but are still strong in their support for the players and the (old) jumper, but because they disagree with you they are traitors???
