Round 15

Starts tonight, all teams playing, west coast on the road, unsure who they’re playing, Freo at home against the blues. Looks straight forward enough.

First upset but seriously this review issue is getting beyond a joke. We have to wait after the gronks stuff up the bounce and have to throw it up but we can't take the time to properly do a score review? And then we get thrown out if we call them bald headed flogs.

Umpires !!!

Fri, 2019-06-28 14:24

I don't support either team, so no bias here !
One centre bounce, should have been recalled but the offending umpire decided to instead penalise McKernan for blocking Mummy. First bad one.
3rd quarter a holding the ball free that would raise some serious eyebrows. That resulted in a goal to Dons 15 M out directly in front.
Last quarter very dodgy high tackle paid to Essendon 15 metres out directly in front.
We all know about the "touched" goal by now.
And here i was thinking the AFL wanted GWS to do well, the bald headed flog must have not read the script.

I'm glad you asked Brocko.

Two more hitouts and one possession less than Sean Darcy whilst playing two rucks and only spending half of the game on the ground. Oh… and his teams banked 4 points as well.

If I was a Freo supporter I’d be more worried about how many stats Andrew Glassjaw has been pulling as of late. 9 possessions running at a 55% efficiency as a midfielder

Been Coming

Sun, 2019-06-30 07:07

 

That loss has been coming for weeks, 

The Pies got what they deserved, North much too good

Too many passengers, Moore needs to play footy and stop looking at himself on the big screen

Greenwood has got a heart like a split pea, pulled out of a hard ball get

Sidebottom to cute, turns it over a lot

Treloar simply can't kick

Cox can't mark

And as for the supposed best midfield in the comp, we are dreaming

Sadly Grundy is going to hurt himself trying to carry this team

Looking at the next four weeks, big possibility we will lose them all and rightfully so, cant turn up and play thinking a win is automatic

Boys need to pull their heads out of their arse and get serious otherwise the season is gone.

Do I support Collingwood Yes, am I a member yes, do losses like this hurt yes, 

Is the above an honest assessment? In reality I could have been harsher, but I think everyone especially Frosty will agree.

Sat, 2019-06-29 22:39

 Jack Jack Jack....

Umpire gifted! There were no bigger gifts than the  Shueygoal for the dubious high then dubious 50 when the Hawks were smacking you.

Then gifting Darling the next one when Sicily came in from the side and the pack jumped all over him and an apparent block was called on Darling.... 

Seriously mate....

Oh and second rate Ruckmen?

So that means you only have 1 legitimate Ruckman at the Eagles because I'd take Ceglar and obviously Mckvoy over Hickey/Vardy...

Anyway was a good win, it's always a shame when umpires affect the result which I think they did today.

Great goal at the death from Cripps to seal the deal - good win

 It's quite funny people think me not being here very often has anything to do with my football teams current ladder status.

Rest easy Jacky boy it doesn't.

I'm glad we both agree on my previous post.

I'm very confident Hawthorn will beat Collingwood next week but it doesn't really change much for our season. I had us finishing 6-12 realistically, it's looking like we'll be on the lower end of that with a tough run home. 

Eagles are coasting pardon the punn, I think they are the team to beat still come Sept

Lurking...

Thu, 2019-07-04 01:00

 Good old Jacky boy, thanks for the concern but just on nightshifts ATM so giving me some personal time at night to cry over 2 weeks of missed points for the Dockers...

 

Serious heart shown by Carlton there, no doubt Dockers just choked from 32 points to bugger all at the first break but Ed Curnow had a ridiculous amount of clearances and I think 7 in the last - he was epic..

 

I'm goin to wait until closer for weather etc as to if I risk any cash on the Dockers this week, law of averages says after 7 or more in a row the Eagles have to lose one soon?! Not holding my breath but unpredictable nature of Freo means they could easily lose 2 weeks in a row against bottom teams and turn up to snatch a win off the reigning premiers..

 

Either way I'll be watching every minute, seen to much pain in 25 years to turn away now..lol

 

Also, to those Dockers supporters spewing about the current form, if anyone said after 15 rounds we'd be clinging into the top 8 after last few years prebooked late August bali trips I'm sure they'd take it - Im certainly happy with the year so far.

 

Cheers,

 

Disco.

 

P.s Saw weeks ago you were looking for a HDS power lead , found a brand new one in the shed yesterday and dont have Lowrance any more so let me know if you need one I'll post it out.

Did you know what Nic No Stat got as many kicks as Cerra, Logue and Banfield and got two more than Cox and 4 more than Darcy?
 
And my personal favourite:
 
Did you know that Chris Masten amassed as many tackles as Cerra, Matera, Hamling, McCarthy, Wilson and Walter combined? He had two tackles bwaha

Mon, 2019-07-01 14:51

Football is turning me into a fat alcoholic (need someone to blame) - 3 cartons and 2 lunches already won from Dockers supporters this season to date and another carton on the game this weekend and one on who will finish higher out of the two clubs at seasons end! 

The secret - get them in January and February when they specialise in winning flags and climbing the ladder and lock them in for the season ahead. 

PS - got to love the two week football cycle. 

2 weeks ago; Freo were the best team in WA and were labelled 'the toast of the town' and Walters was getting ready to run for Prime Minister. 

Talk about from the penthouse to shithouse in record time.

Geez, those stats are pretty damning for the Frockers

Mon, 2019-07-01 17:28

 If they didn't have Fyfe they would be in worse shape methinks .

Really hope the Eagles have a  % booster this weekend. They sure need it.

 Dale fucking man up and support your team in at least watching the game wherever that may be.

You will have absolutely no right to comment win lose or draw if your stating after a shock loss you won't watch this next game.

The Freo loss to Melbourne was a fucking great game of footy for your club albeit a loss. They can hold their heads high if they play like that yet lose in a close one.

My team was around the mark for the first few months, they lost plenty they should've won. In more recent times they've been lacking confidence and pretty rancid. 

The game on the weekend was enough for me to again have faith they can beat anyone on the day.

And fucking oath they'll beat the pies on the weekend even though the bookies ain't rating them even though they've won 11 of the last 12.

I think Freo are right in this next game... Good on em

Well Said Timboon....Dale,

Well Said Timboon....Dale, don't forget even though its been 25 years we are rebuilding! :)

We have had the loss of our best back, two of our best forwards as well as a Ruck and depleted Mid field...take 5 best players of any team and you'll see the same.

Let the Wet Toast Flogs give stats and quote the Wet Toast media for shit that has Phuk all do to with us, they were given a gifted start even GWS would be envious of.

Bring on the Derby!!

 Frock - give this a quick read

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-03-15/west-coast-eagles-analysis/10900458

I love how Freo fans love saying - 'the eagles had a blessed start' 'the eagles had a state side when they began' 'the eagles were gifted their early flags' etc etc. Never let the turth get in the way of a good yarn. 

It is one of those things that if you say a lie enough times for long enough, it becomes the truth. 

Their are two unfortunate realities that dockers fans must come to grips with; 

1. It is a two horse race in WA, and unfortunately dockers fans picked the wrong horse and those two horses happen to race each other each year. Doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result is the definition of insanity?

2. You may never see your team win a flag in your life time. My brother in law was born on the day the dockers played their first AFL game, and is a staunch supporter/member. I have suggested that he lay off the piss, eat healthy, lose weight and get regular check-ups. This might take a while....

Load of Piss Noxious...from an article written by a Wet Toast reporter with inserts from Alexander and Multhouse, WA was loaded with talent regardless who was over east.

Your brother in law is a Typical Freo supporter mate...true through and through, just haven't had the success yet...Such is Life!

 Brock - you are right, WA

Tue, 2019-07-02 14:52

 Brock - you are right, WA was loaded with talent at the time the eagles entered the comp, there was also M. Rioli, Buckenara, Baker, Brad Hardie and Winmar to name just a few more that weren't playing for the eagles. To call the eagles side a state side at the time is wildly fanciful. 

You are right again, he is a typical Fremantle supported, often; dissappointed, left wanting, angry, starved of success... and drinks from the goblet of false hope around january February each year. Was a bloody funny one the other day, he was harping on about how he is going to get my 1 year old daughter to be a dockers supporter in the years to come. My wife who shows about as much interest in the footy as a born again christian does in evolution said 'Curtis, I thought you loved your neice? Why would you try subject her to pain and suffering?' Classic. 

All that aside. I have great seats for the derby this Sat night! My first ever dockers home game derby. I'm looking forward to taking a shower in the purple rain that is the dockers tears.

It was our brilliant drafting

Tue, 2019-07-02 15:02

It was our brilliant drafting in 1989 that won us two flags not a 1987 team devoid of the majority of the 1986 WA State of Origin side:

 
Peter Matera – Pick 4
Tony Evans – Pick 64
Brett Heady – Pick 92
Ashley McIntosh – Pick 106
Dean Kemp – Pick 117… 
 
I’ll tell you one thing we didn’t do and that’s turn away a future 2x Norm Smith medallist, 5x All Australian, 340 gamer because he was wearing an earring.

And they wonder

Tue, 2019-07-02 19:56

 

And the wet scrotes wonder why everyone dislikes them,

Bunch of egotistical mother fluffers, 

You can rant and rave about not having a state side, however a lot of those players mentioned didn't want to come back and play

And the rest couldn't fit into the side unless you wanted  in excess of 100 on your list.

As everyone knows, YOU UNDER ACHIEVED IN THE EARLY DAYS, you bunch of FLOGS

Frosty your stats stand for shit by the way, and Freo will put your team to the sword this week.

GO PIES

Bwahaha we won 2 flags in our first 7 years, I'd take that again and again.

That's as many flags as your supposed powerhouse club has won the in last 61 years and now we've doubled that tally in half the time. They've even named choking in a grand final after your club.

But please Skull tell us more about those suburban flags you won in round robin comps back in the early 1900s.

No Point

Wed, 2019-07-03 08:04

 

No point telling you anything Frosty

You are a know it all, so why would I waste my time telling you what you already know.

Stats, you are only as good as your last game, we were rubbish, you guys were lucky, however good players make their own luck

And you can only play as good as your opponent lets you.

If you want to talk about last weeks games, neither of our teams will win the big one on the form they displayed.

So what you're saying is that we let you get out to a 5 goal lead in the 2018 GF and then slowly killed you off like a cat playing with a mouse?
