We have been smashed in clearances and have had no one at the drop the ball all night - kicking down the line to talls with no smalls at their feet and they have been mopping up - got to be smarter than that

Probably the weak, pathetic and soft marshamallow kicks for goal from set shots is the most disappointing thing tonight. I would like to say something positive ... my mind comes up with a blank.

Seriously? Last week's second half is a continuation of this whole match. This team is still light on for genuine talent. If the rest played at half the level of Carlisle and Roberton tonight, it would have been a contest.

Watching him tonight I'm still not convinced with Billings. Not polished enough and physically looks like a boy after 4 seasons in the AFL.

He has been great, and it says a fair bit about his character. He has come from a long way back, has Jake, but now shows himself to be so much more than the steak knives in the Gresham deal as some were saying earlier in the year !

The most positive thing I can think of is that we will get a GREAT goal kicking coach and practise practise practise ....

That is not good at all. The injuries ( and suspensions ) starting to mount, and as we have seen tonight ( and through the performances of Sandy ) we have no depth.

Acres should have been brought in - not Battles fault but it was a shocking selection error - we might not have still won but he would have given us a little extra through the middle

Haven't done enough to shut down the Don's elite ball users, and has cost us

Tonight is a reaffirmation of where the team is really at, when the opposition come to play. Reminds me of the Swans game and how they buried us after stringing a few wins.

The coach gave us nothing tonight at all - not a whimper. Hickey no good, poor selections all round and no energy or commitment from anyone. And now we lose by more than we won by? Unbelievable 130 point turn around
