Dunno Dan, the true evil in my line of sight is Hagdorn, Hardie, Barich (been better lately) and Margetts in that order!!
I've never really noticed Barich in the past, but if you didn't know any better and you went and made a judgement based on his twitter then you'd think he was a full blown docker!! he's been incredibly supportive of them this year and he has been doing it publicly! one of his collegues snapped a photo of him at work wearing a freo hat one time and he recently uploaded a photo of himself purchasing a freo umbrella. I think its because hes got a good relationship with Ross -> they always have a good chat and laugh in interviews/press conferences together

This.

You know when young draftees come to the club and get taught media training, you know who is teaching them? . . . It’s Barich.

Dont worry it will swing back the other way when there form changes...

How do those west coast eagles memberships work ? Like the new 10k that signed up from last year to this? The chance to buy resell tickets ?

I've been in Melbourne last 2 years and had an AFL Membership. 600$ for unlimited games is a ridiculous bargain compared to a club membership. I'd like to support the club but not sure i'd pay anywhere close to that for a freo membership when its only 11 games.

I pay $599 for 11 games, but i must argue that membership is everything. Its how you promote corporates to the table etc
The AFL did say a lot of the growth has come from 3 game memberships.
Melbourne football is way better value but there is a lot of teams, and 5 million people

Gee VSToday puts up some sh5t articles on Freo. You would think that this week Freo and Ross may get some reprieve. But no, d1ckheads do d1ckheady things. They won't be getting my money either.

See the Worst today are potting us for dropping from 55,000 members to 51,000. Biggest drop in AFL in %, but still makes us one of the bigger clubs in comp doesn't it?
I didn't read it, just saw headline on their paywall
I signed all my family up this year...even the kids...
Next season some of my extended family might become Freo members as well ;)

It seems like the AFLK clubs count "3 game memberships" as part of the membership numbers, how does the massive commitment of paying for 3 games qualify you as a member?? It sounds like the sort of stats the Weest Australian put out every 6 month on their readership growth yet there are no other options for people that still buy newspapers

The West or people like Hardie cant bring themselves to look for any positivity on the win, although most of us ask why cant that effort be put in each week Hardie could not even make 1 single positive comment yesterday afternoon on the radio, all he could talk about was in 1989 his Bears beat the Hawks in round 18 and the Hawks won the GF so really it meant nothing. He is a first class flog, would far prefer they get someone like Barlow to take over his role as he offers some balanced views and will still criticise when needed.

That last line should read, “I didn’t read it, just saw the headline on the toilet roll”.

After our epic win 7West have thrown everything bar the kitchen sink in trying to demoralize us:

- Fyfe's slide tackle
- Freo's lagging membership numbers
- Brad Hill wants out

Not including the injury reports and other trade rumors.

It's only Wednesday - it's no surprise the Melbourne media has finally cottoned on to the disgraceful state of journalism affairs in this corner of the globe.

22 under 22 vote is on, no option to vote for Sean Darcy as ruckman. Options are Tim English and Harry McKay.........
I still remember when the options were Sean Darcy and Peter Wright a few years ago. Pretty sure Wright won. Dead set joke that nuffie fans get to vote.

I have seen plenty of positive articles as well mostly written by Duff, The West didn't release the membership numbers this week and it showed that Fremantle had the greatest % decrease. That's a pretty easy article to write. Fyfes slide tackle was actually started by Kane Cornes who last I checked wasn't part of the WA media. Brad Hill wanting out was written by Jon Ralph who also isn't part of the WA media.

People need to chill a bit on the whole everyone is out to get us angle. When we start to win games we will get more positive attention.

Are you suggesting that the 2012-2015 period was celebrated by media?

My old man has a garage full of the Weekend West and I can assure you it wasn't.
