Choked
Being beaten doesn’t mean choked.  Charlie is a big game player, just didnt get it done Today. It happens.

His final series  was without his co forward H or Jack Martin. He is only human.

Separately why was Fogs subbed out? Thought he was exceptional.

If I were to speculate, I'd say the fact that we were being smashed and out hunted around the ball forced their hand, and they thought another big body at the coalface was a better choice. It make sense IMO.

Better team won but they had to work at it. We ran out of steam mentally after they started coming close but happy with the year. We are two years behind Brisbane in development but we know what it takes now.
Still don’t know why we constantly bomb the ball up forward instead of having another string to our bow by running it closer looking for leads. A few got found out thought Cincotta was poor but been a good find and needed a bit more class than Fogarty maybe Owies but never know. Our tactic of Doc being an extra mid from the forward line failed as we kept kicking it to his man Coleman who used it well. 16 points flattered our last three quarters of play but a year of improvement and we are earning respect not ridicule anymore

We lost by 16.

H had a complete gimme free he didn’t get in the last Quarter push in the back that was so obvious I assume that umpire will not umpire again / if he’d kicked that we’d have had momentum.

Not sure how that result equates to we only played a good first 20 mins?

What was our score after 30 min compared to the end
2012 HAPPENED!!!!!!!

If we make the finals in 2024 you expect a better finals series from Cripps and Charlie Curnow

We lost by 16 points to a team that-

1. Had no significant injuries
2. Had a week off
3. Had a relatively easy run to the end
4. Home ground advantage

MBB. Has a point. We played almost one great quarter, then scored 4 goals in 3 quarters. We might have tried hard but we’re smashed every position on the park. We were lucky it was a close result. We could have lost by 6 or more goals. They are by far a better unit than we are.

Yeah, but we didn’t 🤷🏻‍♀️

Yes of course they are, they finished second. We scraped in after capitulating halfway thru the season. And have done damn well,  our first quarter was a (wonderful) aberration but was never really sustainable at a ground we haven’t won at for 10? Years.

We did damn well. Should be proud. I am. Learning experience that will hold us in good stead for the future!!

Not so sure. More a case that we were cooked and banged up after such a hard run. Not hard for the other side to look alot better in that situation.

That is almost 100% true wise one. However you don’t win a flag by ground advantage or past records. I am most certainly proud of our end result. I am just saying we need to work on so many things next season. If we don’t then we may just be similar to sides that fight to be in the top 8. We got there through miraculous pressure and effort. That is taxing. We need more class and speed. Plus a genuine ruck. On a good day we wouldn’t have caught Brisbane sleeping at the wheel. Don’t get me wrong. We didn’t get spanked. We should have. Look at the US open result. Two great players. One got completely smashed in the final in straight sets. We did well and need to build to a better result next season. A few players need to be moved on. I think we finally have the coach to get us a result.

Well done Baggers! Proud of the lot of ‘em!

Frustrated as well though, of course. Hard to know what to say. Probably should have been more vigilant with regard to the opposition’s  5-6 goal run-on interstate which has been our Achilles heel for years now.

Coleman cut us up in the second q but I guess that’s what separates the top few sides from the rest - a lesser name player will often step up catching coaches and tacticians unawares.

Such a stupid sized ground. No wonder Brisbane are unbeatable at the ‘Gabba but useless at the G. I fear for next week’s outcome.

I think Voss and the players have demonstrated a pretty good understanding of damage limitation, of grit and determination, of defensive structures and staying in the contest when things aren't going your way, but I think today's game has given us an idea of the gap that still exists between us and the best.
