This will be the lowest crowd since the tigers vs Fitzroy game in the early 90s.
It's a perfect storm
Covid in Perth preventing fly ins from wa to support the Eagles

Hawks in woeful form
Stupid booking system

I'm nervous given we are missing a lot of key players plus having a lot of fresh faces. Assuming an unchanged lineup, with have 6 (Potentially 7 if medical sub is used) players playing their first game at the G while being with the eagles. That isn't even including guys like Petch, Waterman, Rotham or Nelson. I'm hoping they'll be able to adapt our game plan to the G, but wouldn't be surprised if we start off jittery or put our heads down at any point in the game. Kennedy, Darling, NicNat and the midfield need to show leadership and poise throughout the game.

How come the ticketing options are all awful (and ridiculously expensive)?
There are no level 4 seats available. How is that possible?
Because they are trying to make as much as money as they can (as well as save as much as they can by closing areas off) from a small crowd

The self proclaimed peoples ground

AFL Member so all clubs I guess.
Not tipping us to win an away game until they prove they can
The 3 sides you have played away and lost to are all trying to make the top 8.

This is Hawthorn you are playing. You would win with just 5 players. Nicnat tap to Kelly kicks it forward and one of Allen/Darling/Kennedy take a mark.

My mother-in-law is coming over Sunday.... I'd be happier watching us take a hiding live at the MCG than staying at my place ...

We've been hit hard with injury, just grateful we have Freo, Hawks and Adelaide and not Richmond, Melbourne and Brisbane. We should still get the win here I think. Our forward line is still intact and I'd back our mids to win enough ball for us to kick a winning score.

Reckon hawks might pull off upset here possible WC let down after they went all in playing like it was a gf last week
Mate we played like absolute dogsh*t last week and still managed to beat you by 10 goals. Not our fault you're a team of witches hats.

Hawks should go in favourites with the bookies here. We've got nothing left in the cupboard. One or two more injuries and the janitors will be asked to pull on a jumper.

Also not our fault that nine of our best twenty two players are currently injured...Luke Ryan, Hayden Young, Adam Cerra, Alex Pearce, Joel Hamling, Ethan Hughes, Sam Switkowski, Heath Chapman & Sam Sturt. Never let the West Coast Australian get in the way of the truth though, I mean only The Eagles have injuries...Fremantle are untouched!
