    I'm often regaled by my intellectually challenged Eagles supporting acquaintances about the glory years of 1992 and 1994 (before we joined the AFL) and of course 2006*, but for some reason they never mention 2010. That was the most enjoyable season I can remember because 70% of Perth didn't want to talk footy, and the other 30% were the smart ones.

    Anyway, long story short...

    That's probably also what melbourne thought the year after they got Scully, Trengove, Gysberts and Tapscott

    Maybe getting drunk pre-game would make him a better match day coach, instead of just nervously sipping his pump bottle after every opposition goal. Looks completely lost in the box at times.

    No good in his pressers after a loss either. Just rolls out his four favourite words/phrases repetitively: 'collective', 'supply', 'we've gotta get better' and 'we're up for the fight'.

    Sunday though, youngest starting 22 in the comp last week vs oldest should tell the tale. Hoping we keep it close enough for Simpson to get through a 6-pack of water but can't see it. If the Eagles are on they'll be too organised and experienced for our kids and take it by 6+ jaffas.

    If they're not on...then next week might be pretty fun.

    Good luck to all on Sunday

    So is Simpson gonna go in with the same old topped up Dad's army in his futile quest to get this year's flag or is he going to surprise everybody and actually give some yoof an opportunity?

    Rings a bell. Something to do with erectile disfunction or the Guinness book of records for the most cold showers? Wouldn't rhyme, so his poem must feature in freeverse similar to the OP.

    There once was a man from Nantucket
    Who woke up energetic in the mornings with an urge to run off excessive energy
    Culminating in cold showers in the brisk Massachusetts air.

    A pretty lame poem, I can't see why our man from Nantucket is such a celebrity.

    Simpson doesn't play the yoof and isn't good enough to coach a team to GF victory. Pffffft.... imagine having a coach like that!

    Here's my prediction for the game.

    West Coast players to be competitively for 2 quarters, with an odd sense than something is not quite right.

    In the 3rd quarter, they'll realize what it is and why the crowd is not booing on their behalf and kept chanting "my house!!!"...it's a freo home game. They will quickly switch back to their 'away game' mode and fadeaway. Priddis to get 30 useless possession and WC to fall behind by 5 goals.

    On the upside, the freagles supporters can still leave as planned at the end of 3rd quarter.

    If West Coast lose what are the odds on some being lobbed at Hayden Ballantyne?

    Interesting. Being brik'd with a pie! He'll love it! If we win, probably means he's kicked a bag

    They have form. Didn't one of their little charmers chuck a pie at Josh Carr in one Derby? I think it was the same game that Benny got run over by a couple of Carrs and Glendinnin overuled the Rosco panel to award the medal to Judd. From memory that was all the same game

    Yeah I'm not a 100% on that. You could be right. I do remember Benny copping the worst of a two Carr garage and giving away a stupid 50 just before 3/4 time by dragging Josh Carr down well after he took a mark. Gave us a cheap goal right when we needed one and took the wind out of the toaster sails.

    Might have to dig that one up to watch again....just for the lols

    Edit:

    Just watched that bit again. 18 second before 3/4 time and Benny dragged Carr backwards onto the ground. Margetts awarded the 50 and was almost apologising to Benny Boy for doing so. Josh kicked the goal that put us 2 goals clear and we were never headed from there.

    eagles have gone slower and taller! It's like they're trying to form a gestalt entity based around 'Dads Army' and Lurch from the Addams Family.

    just who do you think you are kidding Mr Simpson...

    My wish is that RTB remembers that the tagger must go to Gaff and not Shuey. If Nyhuis isn't the defencive forward I how he goes to Darling . Jack will need a change of undies at the end of every quarter.
