Adelaide Crows captain Taylor Walker said his team was made to look like "little schoolboys" by the Melbourne Demons in Alice Springs.
The Crows were touched up by the Demons to the tune of 91-points, and speaking to Roo and Ditts on Triple M Adelaide this morning, injured key forward Tex Walker said fans have every right to be "disappointed and shattered".
Tex admitted that the league is so even now, if you're even five percent off one week, you can be embarrassed by the opposition.
"If you're five percent off - that's all you need to be - you're in trouble," Tex said.
"And for whatever reason it was, we weren't ready to go.
"Melbourne made us look like little schoolboys. "
