I love how the AFL will claim a win with all the tight games this year, when really, it was a complete fluke.

But that was an exhilarating 50 point game.

And once again I'm reminded how good it is to follow a club with good ball skills. Especially having lived through the fallow years in the late Woosha period. Freo is the perfect juxtaposition (brag, I did high school English) with 2019 WC. And it is a hardddddd watch.
Yeah I’m happy we get to watch us every week. Don’t watch many neutral games but did today, and gee it was hard to watch. Made me realise how much we take our guys kicking for granted. Some of the skills today were horrendous. Reckon I’d only be able to sit and watch us, GWS or Geelong play a game of footy and not want to switch off half way through.

Once Mundy retires I reckon Freo will fall off a cliff.

Tough times ahead for the Dockers.

Lucky theyve had so much succ.... oh
Lucky they've got a coach who is a master rebuilder. After the devastation of a GF loss he has rebuilt them to within shouting distance of the top 8, and if they fall off a cliff I have full faith that he can rebuild them all over again.

Absolutely, our handball in close and boundary hugging kicks are certainly a cut above.

On SM-G925I using BigFooty.com mobile app
Had to laugh when commentator interviewing Brayshaw asked him if that was the best game he has played in.
They certainly aint spoiled for choice are they.

True.................... but the question is in what year.

I will have long departed planet Earth when that day comes.

Hope my grandchildren ( yet to be born ) never have to witness the Flogs first Flag.
Am not sure that any of their players can actually spell the word “flag” let alone win one.

Top 4 and I'll be happy. Dont think we can win the flag from 5th or 6th. 2nd would be a handy bonus if the cards fall that way.
Want 2 home finals so am going to be greedy & say I would like us to finish 2nd. By finishing 3rd or 4th means our first final will be played away possibly at Geelong, MCG or the Gabba depending how the ladder finishes up at seasons end.

Sydney have Geelong at home next week followed by the Giants , Port and Melbourne (all away ) then Saints at home . ......so maybe only one win guaranteed .
