    Toast David Mundy 350

    Pre-Enlightenment, I was frustrated with David Mundy for being ‘slow’. Then I saw he was slow like a classic Jag or Rolls-Royce, all unhurried power. Jason Dunstall (or another commentator crony) said David’s kicking action was ´so pure’. Pure class.

    A tango with Dave as a birthday present- that’ll perk you up

    Prediction Round 19: Changes Vs Sydney + pre-match discussion

    It looked as if he’d slightly strained a hammy some time in second half of Cats game. I feared he’d go off but then he appeared to come good.

    Autopsy Autopsy in Every Sense of the Word - Freo Embarrassed by Geelong - Rnd 18

    I think a lot of the story was written last week. Flown all over, needed to absorb a near miss v Blues, they performed magnificently in alien territory while carrying the weight of expectation of Fyfey's 200th. They played themselves out. A crash landing after a mini-final was always on the cards.

    Autopsy Autopsy in Every Sense of the Word - Freo Embarrassed by Geelong - Rnd 18

    I agree with Alfonz that the boys were tired. It showed as they regressed to poor patterns. I'm not incensed about the loss, just sad for all. I always thought Geelong would win. They are big tough seasoned well-drilled top-4 contenders. Younger, slighter, inevitably less consistent Freo are...

    Excellent block, you'll be happy. My thoughts much as yours. Do two wrongs make a right???

    Toast The Official Bailey Banfield Appreciation Thread

    When he first came on the scene several years back I liked the look of him. Bit unpolished but up for the contest and with some handy goals. He seemed to ebb from favour under Lyon. His confidence and form dipped (others can correct me on sequence) and he looked like a dog in the pound that...

    Prediction Round 18: Changes Vs Geelong + pre-match discussion (THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTY BABY)

    I'm a B22 worrier. Stewart, big Tomahawk and go-go Guthrie worry me. The Cats' tackling and heavy older bodies on our younglings worry me. A win would be over the moon but first, Cats, "do no harm".

    Mega Thread The Media Thread

    I don't see it. It's clear he watches our games (plus many others)and thinks highly of a number of our players. To me his comments have, if not a coaching-like tone, at least a mentor/well-wisher flavour to them. I see him as honest and thoughtful.

    Calling BASTYY if you're still going to the game, time to don your Purple People Power cape and be the 23rd player who gets us across the line!

    Prediction Round 17: Changes Vs Hawks + pre-match discussion

    Saw him cop a hard knock, maybe in the 3rd Q? and thought then he might have to come off.

    Prediction Round 17: Changes Vs Hawks + pre-match discussion

    Perhaps easy to talk about what Bailey lacks, but at most AFL games I've seen he's gone hard at the contest (where he's in a position to). In past seasons I would've voted him as our most likely to show physical support for teammates.

    Universal Love Nat Fyfe 200 up

    Several stories in the West doing justice to Fyfey. must-reads are the cover piece "One in a Million" by Mark Duffield and the back page offering by 'the Economist' Ryan Buckland giving Fyfe's truly astounding statistics. Even if stats aren't your thing, just take a squiz at the graphic...
