Will become a boys club, that unfortunately has happened to a few FF programs over the journey.
Is there anyone left that’s hasn’t been given plum roles straight after retiring?
Would love to see Daniels get his own or apart of a footy show.
Dermott and co are such blah.

Club always sells off the 2021 guernseys at this time of year

ISC were regularly $50 for every guernsey including trainers at this point


It's more interesting to me that the 2021 Home isn't on sale yet, really weird

One of the more irritating things about the Perth media is the overuse of the term “Docker Shocker” and “Heave Ho” in headlines.
But this one is totally nonsensical and it hurts my brain every time I see it.

The Rugby signing up for $2 billion worth of TV rights is big for the AFL deal coming up.

White/White absolutely crushes Purple/White and it's not even close

Purple/Purple trumps everything obviously but wow, what a terrible decision and thats before even considering the AFL's terrible clash policy, can already foresee a clash coming from nowhere now when we were previously not able to clash with anyone

Yuck. I loved it when we ran out in the Grand Final wearing our white strip. It's as Fremantle as our purple one.
I'll throw up if we run out in Purple/White in a GF, surely we wouldn't do that


Let's just finish top and run out Purple/Purple anyway

Is it just me but it no one pointed it out I wouldn’t notice what colour shorts we’re wearing tbh. I only care about the shirt.

Lol, we're desperate for GF success and you're complaining about what we're wearing if we get there??? JL said no more accepting mediocrity - that goes for us fans too.

Purple/White is worse than mediocrity

Why should we accept it?

It's the off season. The joint would be even further in the ground if it wasn't for the small talk

So, I had a dream that I went to the GF this year with my Freo tragic mate and watched Fyfe kick a bag to lift the cup. It was a nice sunny day in Melbourne… and he was wearing the purple gurnsey with white shorts.

I hadn’t previously read this thread
