What does it mean to be "united by purple"?
I can't believe you don't recognise how uplifting it is to be banded together by such a powerful force as purple.

I believe the other finalists for the slogan this year were:

"United by Man Buns"
"United by the Anchor"
"United by the Wharfies Union"
"Stand by Ross"

And my favourite;

"We suck, so go easy on us"

All good choices and it seems that "United by Purple" just got over the line this year.

Funny how many people said Mason cox was good on GF Day yet this article says he was smashed by Barrass
Was really impressed with Cox in the second half. Would have been very easy for him to drop his bundle completely after the horror first half.

Think Barrass shaded him but not sure how one could deny his lift in the second half.

Three shots on goal for 2 majors and some important outlet marks for them at half back.

He can hold his head high compared to a host of other pies.

In case anyone is looking for a 2019 West Coast Calendar - it was sold out at both the AFL stores I tried and online, but then discovered that Mirrabooka BigW still have some :)
Bought one for $9.50 today :)
The peril wings feature prominently on the cover but also on many of the pages

Whenever I watch the various recaps and highlights packages on YouTube, all the finals wins are great. But the result that makes me shake my head and chuckle every time is the win over Port in Adelaide. We were two goals down with a minute to go and somehow pulled it out of our arse, beating them after the siren at their home ground. Again. Think how dirty they must have been.

This was imo the game that gave us real belief. Under siege after the Gaff incident, behind for the entire game, nowhere near 100%, yet arsed the 4 points.

Like the Geelong comeback in 2006 these tough road wins set up flags.

For sure, but not as dirty as the Pies =3-0, 1 at home ground MCG, 1 final, 1 Grand final,
how-sweet-is-that after years of them getting over us.
They might have something to prove when we meet in 2019.
As will a good few other teams...the hunted!
