Regardless i see 2018 no fonder then 1982. 2 dominate seasons without reward.
We were let down by Rance, he had a shocking 2 qtrs and totally cost that game.
Degoey was made to look like Carey and Rance was like johnny Manton.
What cost us that game was our goal kicking, we were simply outplayed & had kicked 2.8 to half time & were 5/6 goals down, that won't keep u in games let alone help u win them. Even being outplayed break even & we are 3 goals down while not being able to play any worse. the way the game played out we got back to within 22 pts, 2 quick goals the other way the game was over. kick straighter early & we may have got in front early in the last, that then becomes an entirely different game. As they say "bad kicking is bad footy".

As they say, when Rance has stinkers (Jenkins, Dixon, Hogan, Waite) we usually lost.
He wasnt good against players that were good at contested marks. Jessie Hogan's best game is still the game against Rance.
Jenkins got an extra 4 yrs because his games against Rance and Waite would ring the AFL to see if North could play Richmond 10 times a year. Degoey out marked him in the goal square, that was the game.
