Just a classic fremantle moment. Nostalgic times, in a way reminded me of Freo losing to Fitzroy in '96.

I'm not sure any coach can prevent Fremantle from going out of their way to lose to the shittest side in the league. Time honoured tradition.
I disagree the suns are the worst team in the League. I doubt they will get the spoon., Neither will freo.
Gold Coast did their best to blow it, yet still won it.


**** me Freo. You're a *******........word's can't describe it.
you praise us one week then shit on us the next make up your mind.
Like I said a week ago buddy.

It's one game. I know you let get excited about 1 game, but maybe next time put a damper on the 1 win in a row.

Ross reinvented himself over summer they said.

The club on the cusp of something special the said.

Still the same old rubbish, 25 years and counting.
I agree it was only one game, not 22

Agreed, Suns have been competitive in both their games, deserve to be at least 1-1.

Only North, Essendon and Melbourne have been notably bad in both their games so far. North should be favourites for the spoon.

I doubt freo will get the spoon, but despite winning and all that, i'm not sure GC showed that much today either. They tried hard, I'll definitely give them that, but a fairly painful lack of skill on show.

It's dependent on how Carlton go I guess, hard to predict, the fight for 17th place depends mostly on who stumbles across the line the most. Guess GC now have the head start!

They’ll pump the Saints next week back in Perth.

Still my finals roughie - will be very hard to beat at home as long as Fyfe doesn’t get injured.

The Eagles board has already gone into meltdown after last night so rest assured that a big loss today will see this thread bumped by the 'told you so' brigade.

The hype after poor Round 1 results is as inevitable as night following day.
I assumed you are talking about the eagles vs Brisbane game at the Gabba? Looking at it now, its a loss. But after Brisbane Beating North and Now Port, I don't think eagles round 1 loss vs Brisbane isn't too bad

Trust me I’d rather he didn’t! Haha

Just a gut feel - I reckon he’ll get up.

Was a sickening head clash though, no doubt.
In all seriousness, if he plays, there will be serious question marks for the medicos.

He will not play this weekend.

Big test for us this week, performance against West Coast will show us where we're really at. Obviously hoping for a win but I'm not counting on it

Should already be questions over letting the bloke walk off

I can understand Fyfe trying to push through and show leadership by getting up. But bugger me - that was one of the worst knockouts I've seen in a while

Lad should have been stretchered.

Concussion is a strange one though - he might get up and meet all the tests. But logic would suggest something that bad and he gets at least a week off

Just hope that is all it is

Surely even if he said he was right to go you'd give him a week. He was already out cold before the back of his head slammed into the ground.
Actually, I would give him 2 weeks. Derby is this week, Next game is GWS away. Next game Is dogs at home. Don't see freo beating the eagles or GWS.

If its that bad, don't let him play the derby. Let him play half a game at peel.

Head injuries should be taken seriously.

20m mark of the 2nd quarter sums up Lyon's coaching.

Freo get the turnover at half back and open up the entire field with a nice kick in the corridor - Hogan gets it and is free in the fwd half in a huge paddock but there is absolutely nobody ahead of him for him to kick it to.

No score.

Back to another scrap on the wing.

I’ve had a number of discussions on this issue today, and there is really no simple right or wrong.

With some players in the similar situation, they are compliant and the doctors get them on the stretcher and remove them to the rooms. With some players, even though they are “not with it”, they fight the helpers. Remember these players are big boys, and all the helpers wanted to do was get the player off the arena. If the player was going to be hard to put on a stretcher, get him off in the safest manner for all involved.

The people aiding Fyfe on the spot, made a value judgement.

If a player is knocked out (depending on severity) isn't a stretcher usually reserved for if the player potentially has a neck injury?
