Maybe not learning how to properly put teams away time and again means we’re using all our gas trying to hold on after getting to comfortable leads.  When they start getting closer the panic sets in and structure goes out the door meaning we run around expending all this energy til the very end.

Not once have we gone on and torched the oppo when we’ve dominated in the past few seasons.

As someone else said, we looked completely gassed and never looked a chance at running down a player.

Cohesion does seem to have faltered and that’s not surprising given the continually growing injury list.

Really missed Cotters last night.

The lack of skills shown by us was depressing and took me back to the bad old days.

Let’s not forget they really got on top once Weiters was subbed out - it may not have gotten so bad if he’d stayed on.

Did last week take it out of us - it was a wet slog last week and we had to do everything to hold on.

Sydney oval is comical - one kick, goal 🙄

Harry’s Miss right in front was PUTRID! No excuses.

Charlie is not playing well and pushed off the ball way too easily.

So many unsighted players -
Kennedy the only to consistently stand out as ok.  Even Hewitt who is usually solid, did stuff all.

Missing - TDK, Owies, FANTASIA!, kemp!

What a disastrous putrid game. 

Umpiring didn’t make us lose but they too were putrid - not 15 not 15 play on play on. Give me a break!

IIRC, Most teams have performed poorly after playing us. Lets see how Melb go next week. Having said that, all games are tough these days, we seem to be recovering well and I expect us to recover well for the Syd game.
I was thinking the same re playing us, such a pain we didn’t get those wins!

I feel reasonably confident about Syd, I feel we mostly play well against them and have no issue with playing them up there in Syd either.

That was ours to lose - and we did 🙄

Think we panicked early and then couldn’t make up ground.

Umpiring was putrid and whoever said when the calls are made the Cats just get on with it whereas we didn’t, not what I saw.  In fact a few that should’ve been called for dissent thst just sail thru like a lot of the run Geelong got today. We got zero reward for our efforts and they were able to kick out of bounds with no penalty, hold the ball long after being tackled and/or dropping it without penalty too. 

That being said, we were a good chance to snatch it until some strange 50m penalty to give them more breathing space 🙄

Need more pressure in our forward line, they were MIA badly.

The defence looks unsure, not confident and lacking a structure.
Saad and McGovern are desperately missed.

The forward line is also a dog's breakfast.
Curnow is getting swamped...which means there should be loose options.
Charlie is constantly getting 3 on him - where are our guys to open space!?

It’s like we’re playing dumb at times - we need to work on that and absorb pressure - we’ve always struggled with it so time to absorb and rebound.

I still feel we have a good chance
