seems to be most people would view it as less positive.
All comes down to context though, and how we played in all these games. If we played like the richmond game in all of them, i can't imagine people would be as positive as they are.
However if we played the way we have against port and WC in all 4 and got a 2/2 result would their responses be any different ?
For me i look at it differently to most, If you can beat geelong, port and west coast playing a certain way, and you don't produce it against lesser sides, it's just as pointless as beating melb/carl and not being able to beat higher placed sides.
We've been littered with seasons of pulling off some great wins, and some abysmal losses so closer to reality this season really doesn't prove anything yet, and probably won't be able to dissect it for a few years with the added results from years to come.
For me if anything, the GWS game was the most positive game to come out of the season so far.
So for myself It's all about context and how they played.
If they played to what i believe is the right way, I'd accept losses to port/wc, as it'd just be about tweeking and improving minor aspects/perssonel.
