Three things that should of been the easiest of decisions were to have Drew on Libba, assign a forward to run with daniels and have somebody stick to Bailey like glue as well, we did none of the above. 4th, its really not that hard you have 18 vs 18 pick a man and man up ffs, how much time and space did the dogs players have right from the start, it was mind blowing the room the players were given. All the talk during the week off about we learnt our lessons from last years exit to Richmond, we’re a better team now etc etc, well until you’ve actually played in a preliminary final again and won, just how did we all know this, you don’t and haven’t learnt until you’ve put those things into place and win and obviously we didn’t. In the words of Malcolm Blight, It was a pathetic performance. We had one shot for Ebert before he passes and we dished this up. Wow just wow. 😡
Moving on, we definitely need more midfield talent not new up and coming midfielders but well established midfielders at least two, if you take out boaky and wines we are left wanting. I still swear by the fact that we are still one big tall defender short, how Lienert can’t get into this team is beyond me, hes played well all year and is the (Pretty sure of this) but the second tallest defender we have, if you want aliir to be able to zone off etc you need somebody else in there that has the height to compete with the bigger forwards especially when the balls coming in so easy.
Most definitely proud of the club for getting there again and giving us a chance and have to give credit to Hinkley for what he did to turn the list around and get in the players we did through the draft etc when we shipped out chad, polec etc etc, that was a risk he took when his job was on the line which was a big call by him to take that risk but thats all in the past now and its the future thats important, personally id be letting voss move on, putting schofield or basset as hinkleys assistant and bringing in a new midfield coach, maybe even a Buckley would fit in nicely but otherwise Kens head is definitely on the chopping block next year, after a loss like this in a preliminary final the chances of falling of the cliff are pretty high so between us and geelong it will be interesting to see if one or both us can reset after this and push again next year or will the wheels literally fall off. I personally would be on the phone to Clarko which somebody should of done already before this happened but I’d be seeing where his head is at and if theres any chance he’d come back to Port. A long shot yes but if you don’t ask you dont know. So so disappointed with last night’s effort or there lack of but still proud of the club and the team for being able to put themselves in the position again, if we thought last years loss to Richmond hurt, well this is going to burn bright in the media and our heads for the next 180 odd days until the start of next year. Such a disappointing end to an otherwise good season. 186ish days to go and counting, bring on 2022. Go Port, We Are Port Adelaide.

'Only one team wanted it enough and it showed': Talking points from the Doggies demolition job

My head hurts. For more than one reason, I’m getting ready to go to the game hopefully by the time i get there Port actually turn up.lol. What a disappointing effort that was, didn’t even give a whimper, i don’t know where to start besides giving Clarko a call and see how those holiday plans are going for next year.lol.

I’ve got to get to the club about a hour and a half early to guarantee a seat because of rona restrictions etc. So may not be around after that depending on who’s down there or whether I’m a Nigel no friends.lol.

'How long can this go on?': Talking points from yet another Geelong finals failure

Thanks man i just need to pass it on to kochie.lol.

It would of been good if they could of at least named him as an emergency but I’m thinking Mays tweak of his hammy could put that out of reach as well, that is of course if May comes up alright do they play him but have maybe a taller option as an emergency just incase he fully pings it as cover.

Nathan Jones may not play the grand final but he deserves some recognition

I’ve had the idea of why can’t they have 23 “Premiership Player Medallions and then the rest of the squad could get “Premiership Team Medallions”. That way it doesn’t take away from those that actually played but also recognises the players that helped get them there.

He must be pinching himself and sending a thank you card to North for shipping him out even though he didn’t want to go.lol.

'How long can this go on?': Talking points from yet another Geelong finals failure

omfg dont get me started on that, it does my head in. One of my pet peeves.lol.

What it means to be clutch in the AFL’s biggest moments

Omfg don’t get me started on that, it does my head in. 26 feels like 21, come on, is it 26 or 21 when i walk outside. I swear they do it just to give themselves more leeway when they get it wrong.lol.

What do they call it it these days, hamstring awareness maybe.lol.

Either that or a, if your going to hurt it you might as well rip it good and proper but then with a break before the gf I think your right.

Carlton turmoil continues as CEO leaves the club

I got so edgy I ended up going down the club for two hours and having a couple beers and flutter. Got home 5mins into the 1st quarter. Puddy cat puddy cat where have you gone ?
