While I agree, some hard truths need to be mentioned.
That a team containing Hocking, Goddard, Jobe, Baguley, Kelly, Hooker, Looney and Stanton (all old enough and have played enough games) would still need to learn how to play wet weather footy is concerning. I could easily have added more players to that list.
We had more games experience, more mature players and more talented players, yet they got 'out learned' by a team that's expected to finish bottom two.
I'm not saying we have to drop out older players and rebuild, but those older players need to learn a lot quicker otherwise the opportunity in front of them that has been given to them will be gone very quickly.
