Also, Aish has to be close to the most underrated player in the league. Has been phenomenal this season and is the ultimate role player.

Lobb and Taberner are okay but Treacy hasn't shown much and Amiss is in his first season.

Amiss probably won't play again this season after that horrific injury he sustained in the WAFL, but he looks tye goods and was always going to be more of a long term project for Freo I would suggest anyway.

Your midfield this arvo/evening was amazing after half time

No, he had Kidney Surgery after a bad knock in the wafl (a more serious injury really than an ACL)

Admittedly I am not a Doctor or medical expert, but I think having a vital organ surgery would require a lengthy lay off

There was a rumour he was told 12 weeks but the club aren't putting a number on it yet.

Dunno why I thought he'd done his ACL. Hope he gets back. Hard to judge him off a game against the Eagles.

Wonder why that was handled so weirdly.
Apparently it was the new CEO Hocking not being too happy about him having been given a handshake agreement by the man leaving the chair.
So it was reviewed and there were unspecified KPI's added.

Rumoured to have been signed many weeks ago so no idea why no announcement. The only confirmation has been an e-mail to members on Friday.
Either way, happy. Best man for the job and we're in safe hands.

When your whole career to date has been a steaming pile of s**t it will take a while for people to change their opinion.

Maddening and satisfying night all at once. The talentless Hawks getting their just desserts... But still mad we lost to them.

Suns a genuine Finals chance as things stand. Dew doing a fantastic job.

Big question for them is sustaining it over the season.

Would they be that much better? I dunno if King would have done all that much better than Casboult has ended up doing - which is incredible in itself.
He’s done well but I’d think King would’ve had more goals as he’s more talented

I mean, yeah, but not sure they'd have won any/many more games.
You never know ..2-3 games he could’ve made a difference. He and his brother both broke out last season..tracked similar, Ben maybe a tad better in that he had better ave goal. I know improvement is not linear but track it to Max’s further improvement and never know.
