Things looked up during an elongated patch of fluent play at the start of the 2nd but all downhill from there. What about the food set up, bloody disgrace. Higher prices than Etihad.

We'll thrill 'em

I'm not sure where Coburg are at. .

Bellstreetbill, what are Coburg's main deficiencies? I haven't seen them this year.

There have been patches of play, quarters, halves even where transition from defence to attack has looked solid, things have flowed well and the basics have been done adequately. But as soon as an opposition gets a run on, the structures just seem to fall to pieces, there's no answer to it and best laid plans seem to go to water. Resulting in opposition being able to put 10 goals on in 15 minutes.

There is an article behind the Rupert paywall that states the reigning Coburg best and fairest Liam Hunt has quit club Coburg to join Brent Harvey at NFL club North Heidelberg. Do you know what is going on BellStreetBill?

Yep - Hunt wasn’t happy about being dropped for not being able to defend. He’s been there 4 seasons and barely landed a tackle in 50 odd games. 

Can’t keep playing him if opposition just go through his opponents every week on turnovers. 

So he can go back to local footy, dominate and get paid three times as much coin in the process.
