Our poor record at Claremont (both Oval & Showgrounds) continues with yesterday's loss to the Tigers.
Before yesterday I dont believe we had won in any of the 3 grades since 2013 there.
A slow start was only surpassed by a slower finish with an insipid last qtr.

Copped a totally predictable flogging from the WAFC's darlings again yesterday at Basso.
I must admit I was bored shitless from about half way through the 1st qtr and saw many leave at half time as no one wants to watch a no contest on one's rare day's off in this day and age.
One wonders when the WAFC will finally look at this mob who have barely lost a game in the last few years but have successfully whinged and whined enough to have the 2 x afl reserves sides restricted on player eligibility for the finals whilst nothing is done about their own side who have had way greater success over the time of the latest alignment mkII.

Who else do you pick? Coniglio? Dean?
Chad Daniels would be the first one to come in to my side Noobz0r ...Dean, Coniglio, Wityk, Erceg, Wheeler, Ridley, Holman, O'Brien are other names who should be getting a game instead of certain others!
Not sure where the likes of Blakely, Blight, Ugle, Hackett, Slater & Fullgrabbe are by way of coming back from injury?

Game set and match for me this season I am done with it.
The club is just going nowhere in a hopelessly contrived competition.
Unfortunately Banners has also pulled the pin after yesterdays game.

What's up with the Banners retirement? Heard he wasn't happy coming into the season, but thought he would at least stick it out.

Narrowly avoid both our lowest ever score in history and vs WP.....38 scoring shots to 8, a 90 point belting on a very wet day....the club is just absolutely flying on the field atm and no one other than the hard core supporters seems to give a chit!!! :rolleyes::poo::mad:

I was at the A Grade grand finals on Saturday and the league boys + some injured players were having a Mad Monday.

That's a bit divisive isn't it?

Great effort by the Colts boys yesterday in the GF against all adversity in going down by only 2 points.
Hopefully the boys use the disappointment of this result to drive them for the remainder of their footy careers.

And the fallout starts from the complete and utter ineptness from the WAFC and their Vic style run Colts comp.....and yet the coach transgressor is still yet to face any consequences for his breaches despite termination threats before the game!

Oh no, it appears Margetts is also on the Subiaco payroll. ( sarcasm alert ).

The coaches were warned on Friday, a breach occurred, thus the penalty has already been made known if this occurred. Break the rules, you pay for it.

The buck stops with the coach.

So far the only confirmed new recruits for 2019 are Jesse Glass-McCasker (returned from Carlton), Josh Simpson (ex Fremantle & EF) & George Hampson (ex $U & EF).
The confirmed outs are- Blight, Banfield, Ugle (all retired), Rogers ( to Perth), Yukich (WP), plus AFL draftees Watson (Fremantle), Cameron & Edwards (WCE) continuing our superb unrivalled record at developing both Colts & Mature Age players for the AFL!

Yeesh Josh Simpson is a risk. The pull of Mullewa is strong with that one. Todd Banfield's career really just fell in a heap didn't it.

Unrivalled?....how many games did Jesse play for Carlton again?...SD have produced a few gems....but not as many as you like to think mate....but hey every WAFL club have their success and not so success stories..unrivalled....Naagh don't even come close.....though Tony Notte has provided SD with many a cherished memory or two....class act that fella

Yep some pretty good players there mate and I reckon SD and Cl do rival each other for most numbers drafted..... in terms of quickest turnaround in player retention from the WAFL to the AFL back to the WAFL again.....games played is the key, one would think to any successful playing career.....and successful draft producing club....SD and Cl are neck and neck....hard to separate them TBH...
