I thought the whole point was we couldn't build the same thing in Freo.Obviously you can't name names on here....
Since Rosich has left, the board and senior management have been suggesting that the move was a mistake.
Players don't like Cockburn.
Staff don't like Cockburn.
Even BigFooty posters don't like Cockburn.
It's a nice facility (internally) but that's about it. Could have built the same thing in Freo.
yeah agree that we should do a bit more to continue to embrace Freo. Would prefer playing a pre season game there compared to playing them inHowever, I recognise we're still the Fremantle Dockers (and may we forever remain so) and don't feel we've treated the place with sufficient respect in recent years. The club should do more to embrace Fremantle, whether it be playing some pre-season and/or low-crowd games at Freo Oval, more frequent local functions and events
Cockburn Flames?If the WAFC would consider selling FFC to someone and they had a spare $300,000,000 to renovate Fremantle Oval, as well as build whatever the Freo Council would require to grease the wheels in regards to public facilities around the complex then perhaps it could happen.
I think moving back to Freo would need to be coinciding with a third WA AFL team at the insistence of the AFL, along with Fremantle FC having made a lot of money (as in $100m in the bank) and the AFL says they will purchase the ARC center off FFC and put the new team in there.
FFC has to have great facilities to attract players.
