Pretty spineless. The Roos always toss us because they run straight and go man-on-man, shoulder-to-shoulder with us, and our free running types can't handle the physical contact. Our spin doctors always portray the Power as a tough mob, but the Port Magpies they sure aint. Physical courage and mental toughness were needed last night.

No passion, no emotion, no aggression- no win. 15 minutes in the last quarter will never beat a team that is committed for the full 120 minutes. We knew they would play like that - why weren't we prepared? And the ultimate insult was to hear Choco saying he thought we did alright on the stats, just didn't kick enough goals, held our own in the "hard ball gets" - WHAT THE ......?

I was there. If you can tell me the Roos didn't dominate the HBG's about 8 to 1 then I'm a bloody Dutchman. Honestly! A bit of honesty and truthful self appraisal wouldn't go down too badly with our mob - they break your hearts far too often to be a legitimate premiership contender for my liking. Let's get tough you lot.
