From what I can tell on social media, the rookie players are working pretty hard, same with S.Hill & Walters.

I'd feel a lot better if McCarthy & Cox were posting more football related content, but hey it's their time off.
Can help you there, I had a tour of the facilities yesterday and in the gym working hard was Taberner and Logue. The tour guide said a lot of players do come in but Sonny is outstanding and comes in every day, he also said McCarthy was in yesterday working hard.

If there is one player i would like to see the penny drop for, it's McCarthy.

So many players realise that fitness is the key, Walters for us a few years back got fit (forced) and improved significantly. I read it most recently with Max Gawn, dropping kgs, getting fit and subsequently having his best season.

I know talls take more time to come on than mids and smalls but i hope he can at least get super fit and give it everything.

I always see Freo players around town.

McCarthy is the only one I've seen buying bags of chips from the servo late at night.

Well that's just unprofessional because the talent is there, he just needs to harness it.

It's kinda funny though, so much talent but he really couldn't give a stuff. I suspect he'll draw RTB's fire next preseason and rightfully so.

I parked at Freo Oval last Friday morning and saw Sonny and Shilly training the house down.

I quickly loaded up on sausage rolls and vanilla slices at the markets before pulling up a pew in the old grandstand to watch the magic unfold before my eyes.

It was a sight to behold.

Would really like to see us work on locking the ball inside our forward fifty for prolonged periods. How can we be the worst tackling team inside the forward 50 and Ballantyne is rewarded with another contract?

Life, the Universe and Football
For us it’s not just a game but a world view;
An oval world
On whose axis we spin.

Each match day a new day:
Our sun shines for a week with a win,
a loss leaves us long dark nights
a draw puts us in speechless limbo.

And each year the reverse cycle starts again.
For us Spring is fallow, young warriors wait to emerge from the turf.
In Summer, signs of early growth.
Come Autumn, teams spurt forth;
some wilt; by the end only the strongest are standing.

It’s Winter the day after the Grand Final.
In hibernation we of the Freo Faithful dream of a purple paradise
Merciful umpires, forgiving tribunals
Players whom age never wearies or injuries condemn.
Angels holding Grand Final cups all emblazoned FREMANTLE

There was a Dog after all.
