Season 2017

What’s everyone’s predictions for the season ahead? I might reshuffle the ladder prior to round one due to form and injuries to key players etc and the pre-season form of Kennedy and Fyfe’s recovery from injury.

My comments on your ladder

I think if Fyfe is going to win the Brownlow freo would need to finish higher than 14th

Adelaide already have injurys to Sloane and Crouch, not looking like a good start to them so 3rd might be a stretch

not sure on Melbourne in the 8 and your writing off the hawks already?

Richmond will be bottom 5 IMO

Mon, 2017-02-20 12:26

Cotchin won it from 12th* and Ablett won it in 2013 from 13th spot on the ladder but yeah history will show you need to win more games than you lose but Fyfe is that good (when fit) he will still poll in losses as the umps aren't too concerned with players that butcher the ball by foot. I'd really love to see Luke Parker win it as my favourite non Eagle and I reckon Luke Shuey is a smokey with Mitchell freeing him up a bit more.

The Hawks finished the season off badly last year after burgling at least 4 or 5 games during the season and then went out in straight sets and have lost their best two players and well as Hill who provides a lot of outside speed. The question is whether Titchell and O'Meara can plug that hole... I can't see it but the Hawks have proven me wrong for years now.

I feel so sorry for poor old Melbourne I just like to see them play finals.

 Jury is still out. Watched quite a few games thus far, but yet to see half of them. Liked the look of Melbourne on the weekend, think doggies will be the big slider.

Tue, 2017-02-21 21:23

 Pfft Hawks finished off the season badly....

 

Cmon Frost if Isaac ( ever reliable leg ) had kicked that goal against Geelong then who knows how things couldve panned out...

 

They were in front of the dogs and blew some chances, could've been 30 pts up going in at half time.....

 

Lewis overated and seemed to only perform when he really needed to, Mitchell GUN, But....

 

Look at Tom Mitchells stats for his age, why oh why would Sydney have let him go? He's a better mid already than both Lewis or Mitchell ever were albeit the latter is one of the best movers of the ball i've seen...

 

Omeara? Who knows but you would have to say its one of the bigger trade gambles in recent history. Fully fit could be top 3 mid in a few years?!?!

 

Risk worth taking i say, and they are pretty darn good at getting players fit and performing...

 

Hill was pretty awsome for us but lets just say we swapped him for Roughy, Oh and then we get Vickery thrown in for free...

 

Loose Mitchell Hill Lewis

Gain Rough Vickery Jaeger Tichell

Sun, 2017-02-26 13:41

 Wasn't like one side was full strength and the other full of second string players.Freo didn't have Sandilands. Points on offer? Freo were playing in the East Fremantle country  zone, an important part of their of their country supporter base. Reckon they weren't trying? Anyway, yeah, practice match only, long way to go yet.  Where's Randall?

Sun, 2017-02-26 23:08

 Last I heard Randall was spotted chasing after Ro$$ the Bo$$ in Freo sprinting past the sail and anchor. He wanted Ro$$ to sign his knickers.

 

Apparently Ro$$ refused, the last time Ro$$ was fondling another mans knickers Zac Dawson took a picture...

 

Secured Zaccy boys contract and has ensured he will play until he's 45...

 

The good news though, Zaccy boy had a terrific JLT game in Gerro - His stats were - 1 handball and 1 tackle for a total of 6 DT points, you bloody bewdy Zaccy!!

Mon, 2017-02-27 07:29

 Glad to know i am missed.  

 

First point - its game one of the pre-season for freo, game two for eagles.  Lets wait for season proper.

 

Second point - i am interested to now the reasoning of others when they say richmond will finish higher than the dockers?  Bearing in mind injuries freo carried for much of last season, and the introduction of some quality trades.  Vs richmond who got rid of that thug of a ruckman.

 

Third point - the AFL will ensure GWS wins every thing this year.  So it is all irrelevant.

Half of the West Coast side

Mon, 2017-02-27 11:00

Half of the West Coast side played their first game as well. My favourite stat is that Chris Masten layed one less tackle than the whole seagull troupe (Bradley and Steven Hill and Pearce) which is made worse when you consider West Coast had 415 disosals to Freo's 214.

With the inclusion of Prestia, Caddy and Nankervis, Richmond have a decent young midfield and are a better side than Freo.

No pav, Sandi is ancient, Fyfe's first year as top dog, dont see it happening.

 

Bit im with Randall, they will finish higher than Richmand... richmand will be cearching for a new coach soemtime this season.

 

Dogs, GWS hard to beat this year.

Cam Green the 17y old cricket

Tue, 2017-02-28 18:33

Cam Green the 17y old cricket sensation dislocated his patella in the warmup and then went out and made 45 and took 3 wickets against the top of the table Bushrangers.

Bradley Hill came out whinging to the media today that he played badly  on the weekend because he is allergic to... wait for it.... water.

Dermie played out a GF with a broken rib and a bruised kidney and this jerk is blaming his performance on good ol' H2O.

This season is going to be entertaining to say the least.

 Its good to have you back Randall.....

 

Fishwrecked gets boring at times and when i'm away at work its in my 3 goto sites for time killing, info and of course banter.

 

I sure am glad the REAL footy season is nearly upon us!!

 

Piss the chics off the Telle!!

 

No offence ladies but you've had you're time in the sun, if i wanted to watch a shit standard of footy i'd go and watch the kids under 13's...

 

When i start watching the WAFL/SANFL/VFL/NEAFLE and i cant get enough of all of that i might decide to watch a game of chics AFL but until that day i say let the fellas stick to footy and you gals go play netball.

 

Not charging a gate fee and then wanking on how succesful its been because 5 thousand people go WTF!!

 

I have to pay to go watch under 13's footy and rightly so, make it free to go and see the WAFL so the lads get to run around with a few thousand watching....

 

Equal this equal that, wank!!

 

FFS what is this world coming to!!

 

Just go and do the fucking dishes would they!!

 

Actually on a serious note, I hope the Dockerettes win the flag, at least you'll finally have some silverware in the dust collecting big empty trophy cabinet!!

Hodge to miss round one after being dropped by the leadership group for missing a training session yet on the eve of the finals he gets done for drunk driving and the leadership group give him a fine he could have just grabbed from his front pocket.

The Hawks are imploding

 JLT done and dusted.  Bring on round one.

 

Putting aside an insipid performance in geraldton, the last two games have seen some better signs for freo's ball movement and scoring opportunity.

 

Sandi and fyfe are gearing up for big years. Three recruits are looking good.  Kerstan still has to learn his role a bit.  Need to get alex pearce in, in place of dawson.

Sat, 2017-03-11 09:57

 Went to the game last night , nice bag for McCarthy was happy with Brad Hill’s effort .. Hamling and Kerstan still got a bit of work to do ..nice goal outside 50 for Logue’s first game . Still a bit scrappy skill wise and thought against the likes of a hapless Blues they could’ve backed themselves in and went more direct at times . Alex Silvagni still going hard at it for the blues came off second best with a head clash and looks as though Ballas will be out with a hammy of sorts for a few weeks . Bring on the mighty cats for Rnd 1

 Skills need polishing still, but didn't think Freo really got out of 3rd gear.

 Chris I think i saw you there....

 

Were you lonely, was there someone else up the other end?

 

Sandi and Fyfe both in my Supercoach teams Randall and i hope you are right but for now I'm just hoping Fyfes leg doesnt fall off and also am hoping Sandi lifts his toe high enough to clear the turf prior to kicking the ball....

 

Surely Carlton arent going to remain shitful for another year but it is looking likely....

 $30 odd bucks is a bit rich

Sat, 2017-03-11 18:51

 $30 odd bucks is a bit rich for non members for a scratchy might've had some influence on numbers , think it was around 6500 . We took full advantage though and snuck around and sat in the 2nd tier near the boxes . Cheers for Bradley btw I think he's going to be a good asset and in appreciation anytime you want Zac back no worries just give us a hoy , we'll pay for the ticket ..

Very, very, very happy with getting Mitchell for pick 88 and Vardy for pick 74. 

Emac is back and Lecca is firing and we are moving the ball with deadly speed and accuracy through the middle and giving Kennedy a tonne of space.

The big question hanging over our heads is the ability of Lecca, Darling, Yeo, Kennedy in particular to perform on the big stage. 

I'm going to whack a sneaky 10er on JJK kicking 100+ this season too.

 Mitchell, 38 disposals for 88 SC points. That's says enough about Mitchell.

 And it was just 85, my blue, it's just whatever the SC page says.

 LOLOLOL you pair of wankers.....

 

Jack who is Licka and Evac?

 

Sam who? 

 

I do think Petrie is an incredible rookie, he looks more like 22 than 18 though...

 

$30 bucks eh Chris well i'll be fucked, you do know you can go and watch the tarts for nothing dont you?? They even get a babysitter to fly with them ( FREE FFS!!) If they have a sproglette that needs looking after... They seem to be loving the crowds that roll up and watch them for nothing, thats right folks zilch, zip, zipparoonie but old Chris still has to pay $30 to watch the JLT?? Surely its a supply/demand thing, maybe because JLT is only 3 games but the chics play a whopping 8 means they dont have to charge to play on ovals mown and cared for by men...... Hmmmm yeah i'm not sure??

 

Anyway i'm off to netball training then i am going to go vote for the "equal rights and chest hair for chics" party.....

 

Bring on the real footy for fuck sake.....

 Just taking in the Port v Hawthorn game, and the Hawks I must say are looking pretty second rate. Port just snatched by a lazy 28 points.

 I thought the same Dale....

 

Its funny every year you watch these games and always feel that certain teams are looking good or others are looking crap but then the season proper starts and turns things on its head...

 

Hawks definately looked B grade and not top 4 where i am hoping/expecting them BUT we will have to wait and see.....

 

Apart from an assistant coach coaching them you do see players playing roles/positions unusual to season proper but regardless of that their skills looks shithouse which is odd?

A lot more pressure on the ball carrier without Mitchell and Lewis to create space and bring in the extra man. Less experienced players with more pressure will lead to poor execution.
