    jeez I was looking back and didn't realise just how much went wrong for us heading into the 2006 preliminary final and during the match. Sorry to re open the past and how painful it was but here's everything that went wrong just in case you weren't aware.

    Missing from 06 prelim
    Kris Massie
    Mark Ricciuto- 44 goals during 06
    Trent Hentschel- 42 goals during 06
    Ken Mcgregor- 21 goals during 06
    Ben Hart

    During Match issues

    Rhett Biglands off early with injury forcing 33 year old Matthew Clarke to ruck for duration of match against 25 year old Dean Cox at his peak.

    Bock playing up forward instead of down back

    Scott Welsh 1 goal, Jason Porplyzia Nil goals, Ian Perrie Nil goals, Scott Thompson Nil goals, Brent Reilly 0.2 and Brett Burton 2.3


    Such a shame that we had such bad luck with injury and form at the most crucial time of the season, I have no doubt we would have won the 2006 finals if it wasn't for all of that. Not too mentioned playing a drugged up West Coast. Sorry again but just never realised the extent of our bad luck in 2006

    I thought Biglands got injured either just before half time or in the 3rd quarter. We were ahead by 17 points? ( memory ) at half time?

    Yes its interesting looking back and it seems that lack of a good tap ruck led to the goals drying up

    Yeah you could be right, it is such a shame we had such bad luck. I definitely feel Biglands was the biggest key missing that year like you said a good tap ruck led to less goals.

    Nigel Smart has been tweeting about e-sports a little bit lately





    It seems so out of place.

    I wonder if the club is researching e-sports as an income source, potentially owning an e-sports team.

    There will be a huge amount of money made in e-sports over the next 20 years.

    Can you summarize E-sports for me please. :)

    Though reading between the lines I assume its Fantasy based leagues that then have placed bets on using bitcoin or something similar?

    No, it's teams that play video games professionally. Play in tournaments for large sums of prize money and sponsorships. It's becoming a trendy thing to invest in, even Shaq owns his own team in the US.
