There is honestly no point buying a seated membership. There's always sub $30 GA tickets (except derbies) where you can then just take your pick of the spare 15k seats. Further to that, I haven't tried, but have heard that because tickets are sold scanned adults get in under concession and child prices easily. Given the club often gives free children's tickets in a family package it's not great business.

We brought back Bell and now Longmuir has returned. The only thing missing to connect the past with the present is Clive.

I propose we retire the Freo rocker from the pre-game show and bring in Clive (Clive has always seemed most comfortable high in the sky). We dress him up like the Sith lord and he can croon along to this new pre-game anthem.

Some teams have like an honourary person to kick the first goal before a game, kinda like those cringey first pitches at baseball. We can just make it a permanent position for clive?

Is it just me or is Langdon always played on the wrong wing? As a right footer, surely he should be on the right wing? Maybe it's just the way he positions himself, but he often seems to be having to do a check side when getting the ball forward, particularly into the F50.

For a guy that already has questionable kicking skills, and obviously no left foot, it baffles me when I see him running down the left wing. Hill is far more evasive and a quicker first step so is better at getting around onto his right, surely he should be on the left wing?

It's amazing how the little things piss me off the most!
Banana, not checkside

Yeah he was played on the wrong wing. There was talk about that on some commentary (can't quote source sorry) just before he was traded - that his preference would have been to play the right wing, but Hill had first crack at it. I that's half the reason his delivery inside 50 was so diabolical at times. GingerDocker

Anyone want to become Freo's Head of Member and Fan Acquisition?


If it were Head of Crazy Fanatical Supporter Acquisition we'd have a bunch of very qualified candidates on here.

We're going into 2020 with the equal 2nd youngest list, and the 2nd least experienced list. GC is the youngest and least experienced

Doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Lower than in previous years, but that’s largely due to losing Sandi who only player a handful of games. Comparatively, those in the B22 like Ryan, Brayshaw and Cez have all gained 20 or so more games.
