Former Western Bulldogs captain Bob Murphy has slammed the Adelaide Football Club, after more detailed emerged surrounding their pre-season training camp.

Players seem to be at odds over what transpired during the camp, with key figures at the Crows disappointed and shaken up with what took place.

Adelaide have been a shadow of the team that made last season’s grand final in 2018, and Murphy blames the camp for “breaking” the Crows.

“I’m more and more confused by this camp the more I think about it,” Murphy told SEN’s Crunch Time on Saturday morning.

“It’s meant to be a thing of mindfulness and emotional intelligence, I’ve never seen a bigger lack of emotional intelligence than a group that is bottomed out emotionally after that heavy defeat, to then take them away and twist the blade on these things.

“I’m not an expert, but I would’ve thought at that stage of the ‘grief’ that that’s a group that needs to be brought together and picked up, not to be buried.

Hawthorn win easily tonight. I think they’re broken, Adelaide.”

Kane Cornes tried to find an argument to support Adelaide’s pre-season thoughts, but while he believes they may have been on the right track, they went about the camp in the wrong manner.

“I can get the reasons for it, the competition is so even and how can you get an edge? The edge is in the mind,” Cornes added.

“They’d delved into that space throughout the year and it worked for them, so how can we go to the next level?

“The next level isn’t physically, because we’re physically okay, we’ve got the talent, let’s go into the mind.

“I get what they were thinking, but from a number of levels they’ve just got this completely wrong.”
