Who wants to write the preview? I don’t have time but thought I would start a thread for any pre-game banter, hopes, expectations, etc.

Basically, we play the two grand finalists from last year in our JLT games. If we beat them, we are looking good for the flag this year. If we lose, well, it’s against the grand finalists from last year! What did you expect! It’s a win-win for us!

Have at it. Please, somebody write a proper preview too. It’s only JLT, but FOOTY IS BACK BABY!!!! Unless we lose, then it’s only JLT!

Is it bad that I like Beams, and therefore Collingdidn't by default, since Neale and his bff McClure smugged it off to Brisbane to gain some anonymity, only to have the smile wiped off their faces as Beams quickly evacuated that mosquito-ridden, reclaimed mangrove swamp?

The way I see it is that if we beat last years GF participants we should immediately be installed as Premiership favourites.

Lose to both by less than 100 points equals top 8.

Go for it.

Personally I am not a fan of any player who treats a club as he did. Neale had a little more dignity.

Based on last year's JLT series this logic cannot be argued with :) Pencilling us in for top 4 whether we win or lose both games.

I’m not expecting us to get flogged but get ready to copy and paste this against the haterz.

“Don’t you know that Richmond lost by 100 points and won der flag the next season and WCE got flogged by Freo in the JLT and won the flag. So logically getting flogged by large amounts correlates to premierships you idiot.”

It’s not great we play both grand finalists. They would be weeks behind us in preparation and may not ‘try’ all that hard. I hope they show up and don’t field a really young team we flog.

I have no expectations of greatness from the 2 JLT games. It will however be nice to see semi competitive footy again and maybe get a better understanding of how all the new pieces fit into a better and more attacking game plan we saw early last season when we had the full team going well and the kids were still fresh.

It's a fairly weird decision. It's as though they sought out the place with the least concentration of Freo supporters in the state and plonked it there.
Ill be there.. thats all that matters.

On another note, anyone else bought member tickets and been assigned "Seats" in the grandstand.. would that be for real?
