Yesterday was one of the worst games I've had the fortune of sitting through. Took the wifey to a game, sat in the shith*ouse rain for the majority with a sh*t poncho and watched about a thousand times us bombing it to half-forward being out-numbered. I knew we were in for a sh*t day when I saw Daniher and co trying to bounce the ball in the warm-ups for a wet day...fck. Sad part is I predicted pre-game who was going to play well because it was raining "Goddard and Parish"...
Whatever small positives there were, Goddard was good, Parish was excellent early & Zerrett was good mostly despite some bad errors. Ambrose did another good job, Kelly was OK and McGrath battled hard.
Heppell & Watson were slow all day, blind freddy could see we needed quick kicks but both held onto the ball too long resulting in a few holdings and a fair few turnovers, both got the ball heaps but had shockers. Zaharakis was useless, Hocking spent a lot of time on the bench, Stanton was invisible and I even saw him play forward a few times, I don't know what his role is...Daniher & Hooker both started playing for stupid frees by the third and both were thrashed. Langers and Fantasia were barely noticed bar a bad miskick from Heppell resulted in a decent mark from Langers. Oh and Luey dropping uncontested chest marks and a few airy kicks, Kruezer had a day out.
Our midfield was utterly thrashed. 37-60 inside 50's our forwards barely stood a chance.
