The pr spin that is coming out of all clubs, not just ours, is atrocious. I wonder if they get people, not all but at least half can see right through it ?
or maybe they just don't care, cos they know suckers are emotionally invested and despite all the huffing and puffing, will turn up next week, no matter what ?
IF the players honestly wanted or needed an apology, then X should have merely pointed the players to go and read this site, if they felt his words weren't justified.
Cos the overwhelming response to that loss, was the realisation by alot, and wake up call that despite all the ground this club and players had made in prior weeks, they are still a mediocre mentality side.
And people are sick of it. Without the last 4 years they may have still be easily manipulated into thinking or believing success is "just around the corner" cos "we are essendon" (sigh).
But the last 4 years did happen, and it showed they can cop a hell of alot, and still keep coming back to support this club. But they won't condone insipid performances anymore.
