    My buddy Spurr telling everybody how it is - Freo will play finals this year! Get excited peeps - the lid is off!!! Shout it from the roof tops, and we'll still manage to surprise the rest of the competition when we return to September action :rolleyes:

    "We're aiming to play finals – that's our goal – and as (coach) Ross (Lyon) has mentioned where you aim is where you land"

    There's a couple of nice pre-season cliches in that article but here's the gold medal winner for the week.
    http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-01-...o-speed-development-of-mids-says-mitch-duncan

    Here's a couple of my favourite pre-season cliches.
    1. Consistency
    A. Inconsist players declare they are suddenly going to become more consistent.

    "...Duncan, Cam Guthrie, Mark Blicavs and Steve Motlop, needed to become more consistent... blah blah blah"

    B. Good player declares he can be gooderer if he can be good more often.
    "All Australian selection is not out of the question if he plays consistently at the high level he's capable of playing... blah blah blah"

    2. HBF'ers and HFF'ers declare they want to spend more time in the middle.
    "If other guys can then get through there we are going to have more development through the middle."

    3. Midfielders declare they need to push forward to snag some more sausage rolls.
    "Paddy and Joel are predominantly midfielders, but if one of them can push forward... blah blah blah"

    4. Finally my all time favourite... Player declares that he just wants to... well the quote says it all.
    "I just want to earn the respect of my teammates and things like [All-Australian] cap off a good year... blah blah blah"

    God, I love the pre-season.

    I think he is showing every sign that he is champing. I'm reluctant to add that Ryan Daniels was just on 7 news reporting that son son will be elevated to the leadership group and that was just after the lead into their sports report by Barich with "an injured eagle takes to the sea and gets help from some dolphins....."

    Did Kersten adopt a Cat with a trick neck? Or at the very least a cat with a head wound that needed constant bandaging up

    So he claims it's OK because he was invited in an official capacity as Trade minister. Who invited him? Why are they not footing the bill for travel expenses if they wanted him to attend.

    Or is it more likely the AFL just gave a quota of tickets to the government and these greedy ******s thought great stuff we can charge the taxpayer for our travel expenses. There are some really serious issues going on in the world right now that need addressing but if an electorate has no faith/trust in their representatives the whole democratic process just falls down before it even gets going. This is an important issue and could and should be fixed quickly.

    Remember before our first win, the media were starting to seriously question if we were tanking. Those 3 wins in a row threw them off the scent just enough to get our desired result. Ross deserves some credit for that - especially when McCarthy and Logue become dominant forces within the AFL :cool:

    And our last win against the premiers put the rest of it to bed (even though it was a nothing game)

    But hey - you're only as good as your last game, right?

    Which last game? The one we beat the AFL premiers, or the one our kids became the WAFL premiers?
