We were only "better" cos Adelaide switched off and stopped working as hard.
The rest, eh it's about where we are at, not got the right combinations yet, and like i've said will be hard to probably find this year, due to coaching from a position of guilt ( for returning players).
The sky isn't falling, some great signs from certain players, mcgrath, tippa, zerrett etc, but gee the midfield is going to cripple any chance this year, unless it's fixed. too slow and lacking in defensive attributes by alot of the players in there.
The tackling by a fair few players is just downright deplorable, there's a reason why you shouldn't train tackling with just bags, the bags don't fight back.
