Voss called it details in the final minutes. but it’s details all throughout the seasons. why was setters never given a run with in the middle before when it so obvious he plays better in the middle than on the wing?

I think all you have to do is watch Setterfield's games last year, then our round 1 team to work out that answer why he was on a wing in the first place, then look at Setterfield's form as a senior player, regardless of position to answer that question for yourself.

Setterfield did really well on the weekend. In a pack situation during the year, he just ball watched. Terriblly out of form.

Funny what happens when your career in on the line, demoted to the reserves after 3 very bad games in the seniors, averaging 15 disposals a game, and unlikely to be recalled the ones.

Then a last minute call he gets the call up to replace Cerra because the cupboard is bare in the reserves.

It was do or die for Setterfield. His spot on the list was looking very precarious before this last game.

He's a very lucky lucky boy to get a tagging job on the games best ball winner. Oliver took Setters to the footy0, but can he do it on his own?

Now he has to back it up. Don't put it on the coaches.

Who should he tag this week? or, should he be able to play a real inside mid role and find the ball himself?


if they don’t want him in the middle maybe he tags sidebottom. lots of young players used to learn the fame by being told to follow an opponents best ball getter. nothing new or wrong with that. he’s been getting big stats in the VFL all year. i think it’s the pace of the game that has alluded him at AFL level so far.

like i’ve said before, get so neurological training apps and those lLED comes going for him as extras. speed him up. double short black expresso before each game.

:lol: coffee would help.

He may be a tagger whilst we don't have our one wood: The Fab 5...Fab 6 if you include Doc.

He's a big body, at least tall, and he matched up well with Oliver. I think Sidey or Lachie Neale types are too mobile and quick for Setters laconic style. Having said that, Setters was on his toes playing against a Brownlow favourite.

Saad could have collected Owies poor backpass and booted it 55m into the stand. 18 behind the ball. We win.



As simple as that.

Greg Chappel would have ordered Saad to do that.

I put the whole fiasco to having no quality onfield leadership.


this is all nonsense. shit happens and we didn’t flood back to take the sting out. with more players back saad would have had options to run and carry then handball to a free player. it’s not saad’s fault.

footy gods decided we didn’t deserve it.

We are talking alternative angles here diesel, not normal options, and maybe not realistic...but outside the square won a Flag for Hawks in 2008. Rules changed after that game.

Point is a lot of options, but too hard to make things happen in split seconds...nevertheless, there should be leaders who could coach the team through this dilemma, and they didnt.

Hasn't been asked enough, WHY THE @#$%&! did LOB smash the ball out of the contest into space?

I was out for dinner with a group on Saturday night, so I only got to watch the first half. I was trying not to be rude and so I didn't check the scores at all.

Chatting to a couple of guys there, they asked who I barracked for and after I told them, one said "well, they're 8pts up with less than 3min to go, they're home!".

I snuck off to the toilet and watched the final 2mins on my phone - just enough to see the Melksham mark and the inevitable crumble that followed. I guess I wasn't as invested in the game having not watched it all, so it hurt, but didn't kill my night. Reading the wash up yesterday was depressing though. :banghead:

I haven't watched the second half yet and judging by everyone's pain, I am not sure that I should. Should I save myself the pain? I want to understand what happened, but don't want to get depressed. :confused:


never do that again! you have to hold your match night plans to the end.

Because if he took possession (which 21 other players would have done), he would have been required to absorb physical contact.

I saw that on replay about 10 minutes ago, and I had forgotten that. Not a good move. He was in space.

I dont want to think about woulda coulda, and choose to believe the players will be better for it. The pain will drive them.

It's unfortunately a consequence of our injury concerns. Newnes isn't a natural defender. He tries but at the crucial stage, he's caught ball watching instead of locking on to his opponent. Newman, Williams, Docherty. They'd all be preferred to Newnes in defence but they're either injured or filling other gaps.

Watching Melbourne do that to Brisbane tonight, really hurts. Firstly for our insipid performance against Brisbane and then blowing our lead in the last 30 seconds against Melbourne. You just know we are good enough but are just a basket case above the shoulders.

Melbourne played better last night than last week

They would have won comfortably against us

Fast conditions really suits their game style

My tip for the premiership unless they get key injuries in September

That's how I saw it too.

Close space and played close ... except for last 2 minutes.

Melksham was given too much space obviously.
