Point out where anyone says they think we’re better than Adelaide. You clearly do with given your constant ‘the coach is sh*t’ rhetoric. From your reckoning, Worsfold is the absolute reason why Essendon is no good.
Then explain why we lost to Brisbane. Team was out-committed by a more determined Brisbane. Too many skill errors which resulted in scores to the opposition. Brisbane’s mids got the better of Essendon’s mids, particularly in the last qtr.
Then explain why we still use the kickout strategy that cost us the Sydney game. Because it works See Geelong, Port Adelaide + West Coast games.
Then explain why Hartley was dropped for Dea against an opposition with four genuine tall forwards. Probably because of one or more of the following reasons: a) the selectors believed that Dea was a better match up b) Hartley’s fitness numbers indicate he is tiring and may not be able to deliver on expectations and/or he is carrying a niggle c) Hartley is not delivering on expectations and a stint in the 2nds to work on his shortcomings was deemed necessary
Then explain why howlett and Colyer are still selected. See above but in reverse where appropriate.
Then explain why we didn’t switch from a zone that adelaide kicked through all night. Because zone defence works. Would you prefer they employ The Huddle? Every team plays a zone defence. Adelaide are 1st on the ladder because they are skilled enough and drilled enough to execute their defensive exit strategy and have a greater spread of capable players who are fit enough to do it for longer.
I’ll wait. There you go, Supercoach.
