Robert Heatley Stand / Re: AFL 2023 Preliminary Final Carlton vs Brisbane Post Game Prognostications

How naive are those media people! The emotional reaction being beaten by a point compared to a team who was playing catch up by about 4 goals through the final quarter is totally different! I'm sure Adam Saad's message was fairly simple.... leave the ground with your head held high, remember where we've come from this year , don't forget today...and acknowledge the fans in the crowd.

I heard comments on one of the TV footy shows about how the Carlton players supposedly looked satisfied and not showing that they took the loss bad after the PF whereas the GWS were all upset and crying. I had some intel from the inner sanctum passed onto me earlier this morning, the players were absolutely shattered in the rooms after the game. They were all absolutely gassed after the game, to a man they gave everything they had and absolutely zero left in the tank. As for the fast start, apparently Vossy got them super amped and fired up pre game. He actually thought after the game he may have got them too pumped too early.

My concern at the time was that our arousal level was too high and not sustainable.  If we had jagged another goal and kept Brisbane goalless in the first quarter, the result may have been different.  Once they got their first goal, and the first of the second quarter, the writing was on the wall.  It is a credit to our blokes that they fought it out and always had a sniff.

As for looking satisfied, what planet are those commentators from?

Blah-Blah Bar / Re: State Elections

Seems like he was corrupt within his own Party but good for the state. Had great vision for his state and was always front and centre in a crisis. Even 2 weeks ago he was still 56-44 up 2PP, greater than at the last election. Certainly polarised people but a great percentage those who said they vote Labor said it was due to Andrews. Like anything, it was the vocal minority that made the most noise.

The guy is a flog. Publicly said it's not for me to decide who my successor is then tore strips off of them for daring to challenge his apprentice. He was a great politician and great at winning elections but is Victoria better than it was a decade ago? No, not by any measure.
