I complained about Ferris for years, as I also think Don is amazing, but the slow, lethargic, lazy play of our team this season is making me have doubts.

Something is terribly wrong..

According to these stats we are the comps most overweight team (and visually the slowest) and UNSURPRISINGLY last in the competition
Also we are the tallest team BUT we score less tries from kicks than anybody else.
WTF - has anyone at the club taken any notice of this type of analysis ?
No wonder we are a long last under the new fast running game.
End of story !

Does anyone know whether they trained during the whole stupid 2 northern beaches/Narrabeen bridge lock down bull****? Maybe they lost a few weeks.

At a loss to explain their fitness and especially speed considering they have access to one Sydney's only olympic athletic tracks, so they can get out and do nice flat surface sprints whenever they want. Or maybe Donnie and Des have never bothered to look around the facilities and just haven't noticed that big 400m long red thing...

Problem being looks like they lost 3 months.
Well on a totally serious note - it's also been very humid around the lagoon, like 100% humidity a lot of mornings. Like even when it's cooler it's still horribly humid. Personally I think that may have played a part in Keith's death, say if they were all pushing hard that morning or had been for a while. If you are big and have pre-existing undiagnosed condition and you're flogging yourself in swamp conditions, your heart rate can jack up fast and you don't realise you are ****ed until it's too late.

And may also mean that since then they've backed off pushing the team out fear because it's still ****ing disgustingly humid most mornings.

So it could be that they are **** and **** trainers or it could be something along those lines...

The 'elephant in the room' here is the inequitable fitness levels.........another nail in the moral coffin
