    If he not really happy to play for peel , I am happy for him to be an emergency as long as possible. Too good for wafl . Dawson and griffin already pass it in wafl . one don't want to play ressies and the other don't have the speed .

    Well he was dropped, so I don't think he did that well according to the coaches ;) I think most have valid criticism of Danyle - his inside 50 entries. Did you see how improved the ratio of shots on goal to inside 50 entries was last week? I hope he has to go back to Peel to work on that because it's very important. All the hard work winning the ball and transitioning to get an i50 entry can not only be undone with poor i50 delivery but can hurt you majorly on the rebound - like both Geelong and Port did against us in Rds 1 & 2. If he comes back in without any WAFL time I'll personally be disappointed (the only exception being due to an injury).

    I don't know which game you were at yesterday or were you relying on stats but I was at the Peel game with salim malik sitting in the members stand. We thought that no one from the Dockers player in the Peel team did enough to warrant elevation next week. Peel I understand also has a bye next week giving Subes and Sean Darcy time to recover from head knocks..

    Think you are being a little tough on Dawson if you think he is not prepared to play reserves.

    It was very clear from Ross that Dawson understood his role this year was potentially depth, then A Pearce injured himself and an opportunity arose.

    I don't think Dawson is going to look like a champion in any grade because his sole role is a stopper. He is not ever going to dominate a game or get a lot of possessions whatever the level.

    You suggested a certain player had another good game I take it that your comment was quoted in the West. Don't believe all you read in the West.

    I have never heard him referred to as that. Indeed it is about as far from accurate as you could get with the usual criticism that he hoofs it long and without looking. You are right about him not stepping up, he has been ultra consistent over 250 games and his first two games this year fit that mould.
    Where has he said that he doesn't want to play for Peel?

    Yes he was dropped to make way for younger players, which I'm OK with. My point was that he wasn't in our worst 6 players over the first 2 rounds.
    As for the improved I50s, it helps when there are actually players in the forward line to kick it to. Once again, he wasn't the worst over rounds 1 and 2 for I50s. Yes we have looked better without him in the team, but we might have looked as good with him in the team.

    For the next unpopular opinion he is the perfect replacement for S Hill, if Hill doesn't get up because he can replace some of the contested possessions that Hill gets. And this board will melt.

    I was looking through the player profiles and Q&As to read about the new players and decided to compile a list of who supported what club as a kid:

    West Coast (AKA Shit Blokes :p):
    Ballantyne
    Brad Hill
    Hughes

    Fremantle (AKA Good Blokes :thumbsu:):
    Bennell
    Griffin

    Collingwood:
    Crozier

    Geelong:
    Darcy
    Walters

    Hawthorn:
    Dawson

    Richmond:
    Fyfe
    Weller

    Carlton:
    Ibbotson

    St Kilda:
    Logue
    Suban
    Tucker

    Essendon:
    Danyle Pearce
    Sheridan

    For the rest of them, they don't have a Q&A section or they didn't put in that question.

    I am pretty sure SHill is Weagles as well. Cam McCarthy and Strnadica are definitely Dockers

    As was MJ. He used to go to Freo games as a youngster with his late father. He used to comment that it was a childhood memory he treasured of going to the footy to watch the Dockers with his dad, who died quite young from a heart attack I think.

    Lachie Neale was a Port supporter - there's a photo of him as a kid in a Port jumper floating around the internet.

    Edit: Or maybe it's this I was thinking about - the photo of him in the Port shirt he used to wear as a kid to took when he went home one time . Think he put it on his instagram as a piss-take!

    Few more years and Lyon will be getting the hang of helping players develop.
    No wonder he's so sure on his feet, looks like he's got suction cups on his toes.

    Bloody good recruiting then. Being able to pick players who can develop themselves.

    Whatley just blew a load talking about Lachie Neales performance on the weekend.

    Slobbo then tried to get him to admit that Ross Lyon made a great decision putting him in the forward line instead of in the guts.

    He squirmed and squirmed about the Ross comment. Love that Ross can put the fear of God into the media.

    I doubt he will ever forget the "deceitful and duplicitous" comments. Nor should he.

    He insulted everything Purple.
    100,000 people want to pizzle the piddler since that day.
    Naturally Ross has first dibs.He'll do the best job.
    It's personal.

    No retraction is the bit that exposes him for what he is.

    At the grand final breakfast I went to, Gawn was there to chat and get his photo taken with the fans and do an on stage interview. Gawn was the biggest bloke I have had my photo taken with, but anyway, during the interview he said right in front of everybody that he liked a smoke. So there's one you can add to your claim. Um also mundy was doing the same kind of thing at the breakfast. I touched him and he said I was allowed but he cracked that smile. When mundy went up for his onstage, the first thing they said to him was thanks for dressing up because mundy was wearing a knitted jumper.

    Actually I think if the crowd chanted E A G E freo dockers and get the drums going. It would be great cos the drummers wouldn't be just performing but they'd feel part of something greater than themselves. I think it should be onus of the cheer squad to learn this 4 note chant. To take us back to out roots.
