Round 16

 Could be another tough round for picking winners here.

Hawks vs Pies a tough one. Hawks have won the last couple and played well against the Eagles, but I'm tipping the Pies here.

Bombers vs Swans could go either way. Swans have improved and should win.

Suns vs Tigers should be an easy win for the Tigers

Port vs Crows showdown I'm going for the Crows, but could go either way

Doggies vs Cats should be a win for the cats, but the dogs could surprise everyone

Western Derby I'm going to be loyal and pick the Eagles who should win a tight one

Blues vs Dees a toss up, but I'm tipping the Dees

Norfs vs Saints a must win for the Saints to stay in the hunt for 8th spot, but Norf to win

 GWS vs Lions another each way game, but GWS has had the wood on the Lions for a while and that should continue

Happy tipping folks!

Mother's Day 1995 and the first Western Derby and  the new kids on the block minus Andrew Mcleod, Scott Lucas and Matthew Lloyd take on the reining premiers with talk they'll take it up to big brother only get smashed every quarter and came away 83 point losers.

Fast forward to July 2019 for Western Derby 50 and Rosco's rebuilt Dockers with handpicked talent traded from around the league take on the reining premiers with talk they'll take it up to big brother only to get smashed every quarter and come away 91 point losers.

Kind of fitting in a way if you think about it.

That L.Neale kid for Brissy goes alright. Freo should be targeting him for a trade to bolster their midfield

Yeah happy for him, playing well and has given them a real boost...few teams sneaking under the radar atm....West coasts flag to lose though, as woeful as Freo were on Saturday night I recon the Eagle are phukin Red Hot atm, not much went wrong for em and I'm expecting them to do the exact same to the Pies Friday night...Sorry Uncle!

Just to add insult to injury...Some Clown or Intelligent person which ever you prefer has started a Change.org page to have Ross booted...

Regardless of how much of a flog I think Ross the Toss is, if the players don't care then they won't play well.

As a west Aussie who will support the dockers every week they don't play the eagles, it was sad to see such a dismal showing. As a West Coast supporter, HAHAHAHAHAHA and so on.

 What a game. Got into some

Tue, 2019-07-09 09:53

 What a game. Got into some pretty heated exchanges with some dockers fans sitting around me, they were all pretty keen to get into me before the bounce and for the majority of the first quarter. Heard some less than savoury snide comments towards Liam Ryan in the first when he missed a sitter early on (lets not go there).

Probably my favourite comment I copped multiple times over the course of the game 'Nic No Stat' - went on to be super influential in his 2nd AFL game back and made it into the AFL team of the week and copped a few coaches votes too from memory? Like I said Freo shat the bed at the selection table naming Sandilands. Was largely just used as a step ladder - he's been a good servant of the club, but surely this is enough for the big fella?

Freo have a half decent core group of players who are up to it, then falls away pretty sharply with a lot of C graders. 

Can't stand Ross the Inapropriate Boss' post game pressers - uses throw away terms with little meaning, this weeks phrase of the week 'rolling feast'. I also enjoyed how he said there's a lot going right for the club at the minute, and started with 'the board'. Wow.

Bring on the pies.

This will sound condescending

Tue, 2019-07-09 11:08

This will sound condescending but as a long time suffering Black Ducks supporter I do genuinely feel for the true Freo supporters…. at least you guys get compensated with draft picks. I don’t know what you’re going to do with Cerra and Brayshaw as they’ve both fallen off a cliff after promising first years and at least one of them could/should be used to get Kelly or Coniglio. Father time looks to be catching up with Mundy very quickly and Belly needs to stick a fork in Sandi who was a liability in between ruck knocks as is Brad Hill by foot. Colyer has no place on an AFL field and makes Masten look like an A grader.

 
I’m not sure if there’s a stat for goals created through pressure acts but I’d be willing to bet that NicNat sits on top of that list. The bloke is a beast around stoppages and has now taken to roving his own taps in between giving Shuey silver service. Forget the flashy stuff, Liam Ryan is starting to show he has an exception football brain and sets up a lot of plays through being able to read the game a step ahead of the others and we’ve uncovered another beauty in Jarrod Cameron too, not bad for pick 39.
 
Happy to see the lads finally put four quarters of footy together just in time for a Pies team that will be breathing fire. Win Friday and we’ll all up sew up a top two finish with our run home if we win the game we ‘should’ win.  I’ll watching with a few of the lads I played my junior and high school footy with so should be a cracking night.
