I would love for us to just come out and rip into the umpiring, but we won’t. The club is so worried about towing the company line that they won’t put up a fight to what clearly is prejudice against the club and it will just continue to happen. Playing nice and keeping quiet certainly hasn’t helped us, so f*ck it and come out swinging.
Regarding the game it was same old, same old. We worked hard, but missed easy shots again to open up a bigger lead and it came back to haunt us. Jake Long is a VFL player and have no clue why we left Dea our for McNeice who did very little. Our midfield looked spent as did Belly and although Brown and McKernan played ok (Jake had a quiet one)…it’s a massive worry that Brown and McKernan are our key forward targets.
Still a slim chance of finals, but Mark Neeld and whatever weird relationship he and Woosha shared screwed our season from the start it seems.
