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
It's all believable except the nice sunny day in Melbourne bit.

Just another mediocre decision by the club. Along with the membership pack this year. Tinny badge. Crappy sticker and a $30 voucher.

Bring back the Membership Cards. Stuff the environment.

Membership cards or phone app, for entry to game.

Why not have both, phone’s do malfunction, .... at crucial times !!!.

Exactly.. I understand with Covid fixtures are up on the air but it wouldn't be hard to progam the readers to accept cards on specific dates. But it's not about that. It's about going "environmentally friendly" and ditching plastics.

Crucially though it is a really crappy membership pack. Worst one I can recall in almost 20 years of memberships. That used to be part of the pre season excitement. Membership pack. Card, Lanyard, Pin, Fixture list on a magnet. Pen (sometimes).

Just so poor and cheap. Using the word cheap is an insult to the word cheap.

If they make finals, who cares.. also could be a case of having to save money in the time of covid, and they will be better again post covid. Makes sense right?

Not really. You probably summed it up a little there. "If THEY make finals". It's beginning to feel like we're of less and less import to this club. I remember the last time the club made decisions about jumpers without asking the members. They swore it was a mistake and they wouldn't do it again.

As for supply issues. Yeah I'm not convinced there's enough of an argument there just a possible excuse.

Lets be honest the membership pack was always cheap and crappy, you just got less cheap and crappy items within it, it's no big deal.

Sounds like the following :-

“ Darcy taps behind, Serong reads it well, off to Brayshaw who aims long for a fast leading Treacy, Mundyyyyyyyyyyy cruising in behind the pack takes it on the chest, 35 out”.

Deep breath ......

“Mundy wanders back to take the kick, comes in, ....... bullet like, straight through the uprights, ......... Pav is not the Mayor of Freo anymore !!!!. Freo by 5 points”.

Whoever made this ad must have done the same media course as the freo media team.
it’s genius, so many little drive by digs and subliminal messages it warrants a few watches




Yep, great stuff. It certainly wasn't put together by the same creative team that do the RAC ads!

Go back and search the threads. We already determined that squiggle is no better than flipping a coin for pre season predicting.

Plus someone found out that the site is run by a 12 year old boy in a basement in the Scottish highlands.

It's as accurate as anything that bases it's prediction heavily in what the solution was the last time it looked. Today's weather will be very much like yesterday's weather almost all the time, sometimes it will get hotter, sometimes it gets wetter but it's mostly the same day to day.

That's how the squiggle works

There must be other algorithm prediction program; is Squiggle the best?
