this is what i don’t understand about people around here who rely on hope and faith.
the biggest predictor of future behaviour is past behaviour . so what our form in september looks like, from this clubs recent history of finals experience, is poor, and probably results in a belting.
not aimed at you, cos you can see it, but others just still seem to assume, despite believing you can’t just change tactics and gameplans willy nilly, somehow this side, in it’s current formation will somehow just start clicking and it’ll all work out somehow.
oh but the draw is easier …
not really, and with this sides propensity to lose to bottom clubs, no game is “easy”.
oh but we did it last year…
yes after a drastic change in a sacking of a coach. you can also argue we are missing the biggest driving force in our turnaround in dev.
hawks, who we’ve won 2 games in how many years, i stopped looking at 2012
WC over there, granted we won last year, so there is that, but in general they don’t play in the west too well.
we also have freo over there with the same trait as above, and they did beat us last year.
giants whooped us in rd 1.
and have the pies in the last rd who our record against them is similar to hawthorns, there’s ahell of alot more losses than wins.
so it beggars belief why people run with the thinking, oh how can you predict how we will go in the future.
well look at the past. this club hasn’t been able to string together a consistent strong season where the team performs for 25 odd weeks of the year, for how long ?
and all of a sudden at this point in the season, with the way it’s gone so far, it’s somehow going to change ?
