    I actually find most of the stuff barrett writes decent. You got to take the good with the bad. When we are not going very well, there are bounds to be articles that will hit a nerve.

    Hackdorn on the other hand ...

    What's the fuss with Weller's ponytail? The main thing is, his sight isn't obscured.
    As long as it isn't a huge long ponytail.
    I hate cats. Feral fleabags. They wouldn't last one minute with this quokka!

    Our boy Taberner is now 12th in the AFL for contested marks...... 12th!!!!!!

    Take out players who haven't played more than 5 games and he is 8th in the entire comp for average contested marks.

    Go **** yourself AFL site. Looked on the main page and they have a feature, "Best bits of the round in pics". What do you reckon they might have used? Rioli celebration after the winning goal maybe? Nup, it's Ballantyne with his face all swollen from a broken cheekbone. Classy :thumbsu:

    He was definitely not alone in his abysmal opinion of Taberner. Stephen Hill (and probably many others) yes, but not Tabs. I could scarcely differentiate between quite a few Freo posters and opposition trolls when it came to him and it was only a few short months ago too. I am very happy at how quickly he managed to win people over.

    To hastily circle back to UN's post, 12th in the entire comp for contested marks, damn!! :cool:

    Anyone else get the email from the club saying :
    "We noticed that you didn't attend our last home game against Geelong and we missed your support and passion at Domain Stadium."
    but you were actually at the game??
    Sophisticated data collection right there!!:eek:
    It'll be the Steves.:rolleyes:

    In keeping with all things Domain, the scanners are overpriced pieces of shit too apparently;)

    I've gotten that a couple of times when I've forgotten my tickets and had to get replacement paper stubbs at the membership hut.

    I would've thought the computer system would still register the membership numbers as being used.

    I emailed the club and told them I was there and got this:

    Thank you for your email and letting us know.
    At times, the scanners at Domain Stadium will not work correctly when your membership card is scanned, which therefore mean our system picks up that you did not attend.
    If you receive an email like this in the future, and have been to the game, feel free to ignore it as it was a scanning error.
    If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to contact the Fremantle Dockers Membership Department on (08) 9433 7111.

    Kind Regards,

    I've just walked through a few times, without getting the barcode scanned, particularly when they are taking their time/there's a few people waiting. I usually have it out, and wave it in their general direction and when I get to the end of the entry and nobody has scanned it, just keep walking.

    Did Jimmy Walker win the sprint for us one year? Yet he never really seemed that pacey onfield. Will watch Darcy with interest

    He won it twice. Had some toe! Always thought he should have been a better player than he was but thats hardly an original thought.

    As a generally paranoid person I wondered if the smoke from our fireworks at home games would be bad for the players/punters. It is: https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2010-11/f-sf-sff111610.php

    It can't be good running around in that smoke semi-regularly. I say we stop the nasty fireworks. Someone write up a petition.
