Modra hasn't exactly shone lately but I'm willing to cut him a little slack. Everyone has their bad spots. Right now, the whole team's one big bad spot. Us dockers fans will have to be rewarded for our patience eventually. We saw the signs when the dockers finally won their first western derby. I don't think the recent losses have entirely been because they're a bad team. They've actually played pretty good in each of those games but have just fallen short. If they were being consistently thrashed it would be bad enoug but these narrow losses, where you just know they're good enough that they could have won any one of those games, are doubly frustrating.
