It's hard to see how the poor old Dockers could have played better against Adelaide today. They tried their darndest, but as has so often been the case over the years, they were outmuscled.
Still, all is not lost with a home final next week, which if they win - let's not forget - hands them their most successful season ever. And the Dockers have lots of up-and-comers who'll be better next week for today's experience.
Hopefully, Chris Connolly will be able to find a way for his midfielders to get the ball to the likes of Pavlich and McPharlin a bit more. I think Aaron Sandilands could still play a decisive role up-front this year as well.
No disrespec' to old True Blue, who's entitled to follow whatever team (s)he chooses, but sheesh I hope the Eagles get done this evening.
