    There's a current Perthnow article re fyfe "meeting" with hogan on Tues night. Looks like reporters are trawling BF again. Didn't mention the beers, cheap tacos, other blokes, or Rodneys though. Might've been taken less seriously i guess.:rolleyes:

    Can’t be bothered training or playing footy, but climbing up balconies to take photos of a sleeping chick - that he will do! Selective effort giving syndrome

    People in footy love to excuse incidents and dish out second chances. Colin had racked up a couple of shenanigans before coming to Freo.

    But I think over time, the reality is that we underestimate the risk of continued behaviour of a disappointing nature. Whether it is exactly the same incident again or another manifestation of of poor personal judgment or control, it seems that the risk is a bit higher than we think. We have been burnt a few times lately.

    It is probably worth having a firmer bias toward excluding players with a history. I am not saying 100% never give a guy a second chance but I am saying to raise the bar a heck of a lot. Maybe give ourselves a budget of only one behavioural project every 6 or 7 years instead of the constant parade of rapscallions and ne'er-do-wells we have been hoodwinked by.

    I think you're being a bit over sensitive. Our season was crap so we're fair game. She was just as critical of other under performing teams.

    Over sensitive? Guilty.
    Our season was crap? Yeah it was.
    Was she critical of other teams? Yep.
    Are we an easy target? Since day one.
    Was she consistent in her pisstakery? No - and that's what I took issue with. A subjective call I grant you that, but my call nonetheless.

    Imagine if she wrote us up with the same positivity afforded Brisbane, Carlton & North Melbourne (all of whom had worse years than us)...

    The difference was that Carlton, North and Bris were all expected to struggle. Almost every ladder prediction had either Bris or North as spooners with Carlton not far above. We on the other hand were almost universally tipped to finish around 11th with quite a few predicting a top 8 finish. Only the most avid Freo critics had us finish where we did and NO ONE expected the floggings that we got! I mean we were torn a new one by the eventual wooden spooners ffs.

    Look I agree that we aren't treated with respect in the football world but we deserve all we get after that season and should just suck it up.

    I wonder if it was the exact same balcony he fell from and broke his neck late last year. :oops:
