Yeah that’s the bit that annoyed me. Trying to claim we wouldn’t have won it if the AFL knew about Armstrong and the car crash incident because Masten was part of the 2007 draft. Even though he wasn’t one of our normal draft picks.And then attributes our 2018 flag (at least in part) to the lack of sanctions we received.
Ah yes, our recruitment of noted big game player and all-around superstar of the AFL Chris Masten."Had this eventuated, it could have changed the course of another West Coast premiership, as the Eagles recruited Chris Masten with their first selection in the 2007 Draft, who would go on to help the club win its 2018 flag. There was only a kick in that game, too."
"Although we now know West Coast as a 50-time premiership winning club and the most successful sporting organisation the country has ever seen, at one point they had some players with a drug problem."The year is 2080 and 95 year old former afl journalist talks about the drug culture at one team almost 100 years ago.

A few years ago I had an in-depth chat to Daniel about footy and his knowledge and insight surprised me. He would leave most of the so-called footy experts for dead.I'm sure it's been written about here but Daniel Kerr is an excellent analyst on the Coast to Coast podcast. Under all the joking and mucking about, he knows his stuff. That seems obvious but there aren't that many ex-players who are good at talking about how the game works rather than just spouting off.
Shouldn't those 50 premierships have a * next to them? You know, cos we weren't sanctioned by the AFL and managed to land Chris Masten in the 2007 draft? And as you know the club obtained the rights to Masten's genetic material in 2062, allowing us to extract his athletic running genes and perpetually implant them into each year's crop of vat-grown 18 year old draftees, which culminated in the incredible 10-peat Premiership sides of the 2070's who travelled interstate every second week by running across the Nullabor and back. F*cken rigged VFL..."Although we now know West Coast as a 50-time premiership winning club and the most successful sporting organisation the country has ever seen, at one point they had some players with a drug problem."
Worse than that - every trade period from 2007 onwards is tainted, so any good father-son picks we end up with from now until the end of time will automatically be a result of the AFL's inaction towards our cultural problems.So if Masten's kid turns out to a superstar can we attribute further premierships to the lack of sanctions in 2007?
An elite player having an elite football brain really shouldn't sound as surprising as it does.A few years ago I had an in-depth chat to Daniel about footy and his knowledge and insight surprised me. He would leave most of the so-called footy experts for dead.
And Sydney the only club to have a player admit to taking illicit substances prior to a game in an attempt to enhance their performance.I’ll leave this here..
Freo still the only WA club in the AFL to have players caught with drugs or test positive to drugs while on their playing list...
I'm still waiting for the exclusive scoop on how Old Pivotonians won the 1850 VFAAA inter-county championship due to the coach insisting on a game day breakfast of cocaine and snuff.The year is 2080 and 95 year old former afl journalist talks about the drug culture at one team almost 100 years ago.

There are only two teams that Richmond hasn’t at least gone 2-2 against in their last four meetings - the Western Bulldogs and West Coast. In fact the Tigers have won just once against the Eagles at the MCG in the last nine seasons, in their premiership year of 2017. So it doesn’t look great in that regard. But the weird thing is neither of these teams were the teams they are today in that game. It was all the way back in Round 3, and their only other meeting was Round 9, 2018.
