Ross approached him to say something after the game, and he deliberately turned his back on him and walked away.

Combined with the rumours that he wants a trade, not a good look.
No idea what it's about but how Ross handled the Harley situation wouldn't endear him to his players, particularly those that are close to him. No idea if Hill is close to him.

Yes, I was surprised at how friendly both groups of players were, towards each other after the game.
It was great to see. Clearly, Walters was being aggro during the game, Redden was after him.

The anti-social behaviour was stated as being after the game on public transport etc, abusive drunken behaviour (family, kids?). But how quickly it gets taken out of context here...
The photo of Cameron and his Freo 'mates' in the crowd is hilarious, all part of the game!
You’ve probably forgotten how hard Freo party when they beat the Eagles... 9 straight to Wce fans begins to feel like just another game..

Been a lot of complaints post-derby, about Eagles supporters bad behaviour during and after the game, talkback radio (not always a grounded discussion or medium) and on Freo board. The usual 'arrogance' is rolled out, along with abusive language on public transport etc. The Harry Highpants episode also perceived as arrogance and disrespect towards Freo. (I didn't see it like that, I thought it was just a 'guys prank' amongst themselves?).
We bang on about arrogance here, including myself, but it's tongue-in-cheek, self-mocking, ironic. Are the Eagles in danger again of being perceived as arrogant and hated by the general footy world and media, as we near the finals? I think Simmo does a good job of hosing this down.
Since the media can't write a negative story about us on-field, they have to look elsewhere.
I'm not bothered with how we're perceived in the media, if we're being arrogant it's because we've ******* earned it.

Playing just 52% of game time, Nic Natanui gets a place in the AFL team of the week.

If you read the Freo board, that would be the useless, pathetic, past it, rubbish, over-rated, flogbag, thug (WTF?) Nic Natanui.

And they wonder why we laugh at them.

Looks like I’m driving up to Perth so would love to catch the game.
Any advice on where to try to get a ticket at the new stadium, up the top??
Did you get a ticket? It's sold out and I've got 1 for sale section 521, back row $68 :D I can't return it via member resale as I'm only in the wings.

No you’re not. Aside from everything else, we are guaranteed to play them twice every season. That’s 2 wins straight away if they’re a poor team.
Yea, but at the end of the day, wouldn’t you rather watch a good game of footy?? It’s got to the point where I almost feel sorry for their fans
Not the team..

I think r Lyon is one of the reasons I stopped watching other games, just boring as bat sh*t horror

I want to watch us play finals and two wins is a big help in getting us there.

Nope. I could watch us flat track Freo every week for the rest of my life and would still come back for more.

Go read the cockburn board for half an hour or so, that'll make you forget about feeling sorry for their fans.

Yeah quite happy knowing that they are defending him and have to sit through Ross Lyon games every week. Perhaps you could justify it when they were winning but as soon as the wins dry up it must feel like you are just pouring money down the drain to go and see "top" grade football that looks like that.

Ya gotta love the way they discuss WCE supporters.They say that when we have a year or two with no success we call for heads to roll.But they say it like its a bad thing!! We are successful from top to bottom and contrary to their opinions;that does include us the supporters whose money helps bankroll the club and whose numbers bring sponsers.Ahhh success!! Its like a drug;i want more!
