    And my buddy can't take a photo without his tongue sticking out. He's like a puppy.

    That's only about 5k less than normal and against a team with a small following in WA.

    If the marketing dept really determined what photos get posted from training based on fan preferences expressed on social media in a bid to lift crowd attendance, they'd hardly be posting a photo of Zac Dawson outmarking Sunshine juxtaposed against a photo of Sam Collins being outmarked by an 18 year old.

    A crowd in the 20's I should have said, I didn't know the exact number just it started with 20. Still not a ringing a endorsement of the stuff dished up in the first 2 rounds.
    I'm not sure what you're saying.
    Are you saying the marketing/media dept don't get any say in how the club presents itself online?
    Or that they don't pay any attention to the feedback they get through social media channels?
    Or its just a coincidence we had a our first win of the year playing kids and these are the same players that were just randomly used in almost all the photos?
    Or all these things.
    As much as traditionalists might not like it the club has to try and fill a 50,000+ seat stadium next year and selling an encouraging picture of the future direction of the playing list is one of the most powerful things they have to sell.
    Of course they feature a few other players too.

    There is no doubt that 28 odd thousand were much happier with the performance, than the one dished up against geelong in round 1.
    How many went to round 1 (34 odd thousand ??)

    34,638. We had a couple of games last year around the 30,000 mark too, but not sure if that was weather related. I want to see us getting back to a full stadium, and playing like we did on the weekend is a great start.

    None of those things.

    My point is that you don't need a marketing dept to tell you to post photos of the kids after the excitement machine revolution that occurred last Saturday. Conversely, if we did, then the marketing department should all be sacked immediately. Posting a photo of Zac Dawson taking a strong mark over Sunshine when he's the number one most detested player among Freo fans on social media is not sending the message you say they are sending - especially when it is juxtaposed against that uninspiring photo of Sam Collins: the very player those same fans are demanding should come in to replace Zac Dawson.

    I'm not sure they think about it to quite the molecular level we do.
    So who posts the social media photos if its not the marketing dept? Sorry if I'm being thick I just assumed the online side of thing would have been handled by a media/marketing dept as thats been my experience in the organisations I deal with. My GF does that role for a NGO music organisation and she's the one that posts all that stuff up after gigs. I just assumed it would be similar.

    The issue is not who posts those photos. The issue is that if the marketing dept were really so terrified by the recent social media hysteria then photos of Zac Dawson taking marks and Sam Collins failing to take them would be binned immediately without a moment's thought. Nobody minds photos of David Mundy. That's fine.

    Its an interesting pickup. I still think they notice the feedback they get from the various channels and tailor the message a bit but you're right, it doesn't fit. But like Ross I think they like to offer some comfort to those who've had their heads on the block. The overall message comes over loud and clear, here is the future.

    Walters subjected to a fitness check early in the session and left the ground and headed into the medical rooms and didn't return. Tucker with the Peel guys and Pearce 2 bob each way with time spent with both groups. Apart from Sonny all looked bright and healthy. Tricky wind this morning so skills not A grade like last Thursday. Nyhuis and Duman both trained.

    What impact do you think the wind there is going to have on training if any? I've heard (and seen from photos) that it is quite exposed, but I guess there is not anywhere as much wind in the mornings.

    It certainly can be very windy although Freo oval as well had its windy moments.

    In fairness to the wind Freo council refused to do anything about it.
    Cockburn will be a different story.:p

    Hope Walters doesn't end up being anything that costs him time on the sidelines...
