$100million and 23 first round draft picks do not an AFL team make.

Exactly but Crows were awesome, feel for Brodie Smith. :(

I completely forgot that GWS are a bunch of individuals who can't play as a team under pressure. Out in straight sets. I've seen more heart in a lamb.

I was really really surprised that GWS lost in that manner - i watched the entire game but halfway through the first quarter you could just tell that they were not there mentally.

Heath Shaw really stunk it up big time. This team is really just a team of champions that don't want to be seen as role players.

Feel for Smith, doing his ACL. Like nic he will miss the rest of the following year.

Yep really feel for Smith. Footy is a cruel game at times.

Great coaching Eddie made Heath look pedestrian. Looked like Eddie was sticking with Heath when Giants had the ball knowing that is where the ball would probably go, as they like to get it into Heaths hands too distribute.

GWS couldn't handle the pressure and the conditions. They went in too tall. Interesting tactic of Pyke's to tag Coniglio rather than Kelly or Shiel.

GWS should have played Stevie J. They lacked leadership and big game composure.

I liked the Crows tactic that Fox Footy highlighted of kicking the ball on to the head of GWS spare man in the Crows forward line. When you think it through it made a lot of sense. Took the spare out of the game and gave the Crows forwards something to run and jump at.

Given the conditions I was surprised they went with the extra named tall. I actually thought a late change was likely and that Stevie J was the man for the conditions.

Yup Martin is a gun

Rance has been good but the amount of times he holds players off the ball and he gets away with it :roll:
The will to win....maybe its coming back ??

Well done To the Tigers, heaps of pressure on them, didn't phase them at all. Martin really has been so good tonight. Lived up to his hype.

How good was the goal from Cotchin!
