Meh. We lost. Next.
I actually thought there was a good chance we'd be 1-2 after 3 rounds. I was surprised we beat Hawthorn, and before we beat the Hawks, I honestly thought the Lions game was touch and go up there at this time of the year. I also thought we'd beat up on Carlton, but they're proving to be a little more competitive than I thought. I still think they're going to struggle to find key forwards to kick goals, but that's not an issue when it's pissing rain from a great height. Also, if you've ever played in a ■■■■ team in ■■■■ weather, you know how much of a leveller that conditions like that can be.
The loss on the weekend doesn't erase the win in round 1, or the tough win on the road in round 2. Nor does it mean we should start pressing the imaginary panic button. Are there issues/deficiencies in our team? Absolutely there are - but I've seen enough to know that our best footy is bloody exciting, and we are absolutely capable of giving the top 8 a nudge. I'm not sure we'll do much when we get there - but who knows? If a week is a long time in footy - then 4 months is a bloody eon.
