Yes shocking but are we surprised? We are a soft team and the rest of the comp know it. Adam Simpson was happy to effectively say such on a public documentary. No matter how bad they’re going, other teams know if they bring 4 quarters of effort and pressure they can and probably will get us. They know We will not take advantage when we have periods of dominance and then we will lapse for at least a quarter where the opposition can pile on 6+ goals and blow the game open. Been happening for a while but nothing seemingly changes

This.

Fact is when we have momentum we don't make the opposition pay. Not only that, we allow them to still kick soft goals against the run of play.
When they have momentum, not only don't we score, we don't even look like scoring. Case in point 2nd quarter yesterday. Think it was 10 inside 50s to zero in 15 min. We haven't improved at all.. if anything, we've gone backwards.

Probably need to add a fair few etc to your post Frank to make it accurate.

Yes that was the etc etc second quarter against Port
Surely they have to turn up tomorrow but you never know with this mob and that is what is most disappointing

WE feel asleep in the 2nd...and done it again since.

They got easy goals in the lead up lane.
Williamson's job was to fill that hole.
He was lost, plot and all.
Leaked 4 goals by half time from easy leadlane leads (Elliot 2, DeGoey 2)

Plows man DeGoey had 4 goals by half time.
Mids didn't win the midfield battle vs Pendles and Adams

We lost by 21 pts
Should've won.
Some players inept on the day.

Injured on the day (tale of our year thus far

Carlton: DeKoning, Charlie, Marchbank, Newman, Silvagni, McGovern, and Betts, Philp return from injury in VFL

Collingwood: nil

Sidebottom back from injury

Against the GCS Pies had out: Adams (he was the difference in our game, later tagged by Ed...too late), Howe, Greenwood, Elliot, Cox, Bianco

..lost it the same way we have for a while now.. ....in hindsight we should have won, we keep making the same mistakes, in planning and on field..
