Life isn't fair, as a Freo supporter you should know this especially after the unsociable hawk saga.
We need to stop taking the high moral ground, and fight dirty.
Not going to happen while Ross is there. He’s far too loyal and considerate. A genuine good bloke.

2011-13 we adapted, changed and were cut-throat AF. Sacked our coach, got - at the time - one of the best in the business. Established a workman like ethos for the team, where no one player was bigger than the team and everyone worked for the greater good both on and off the field.

Now we have lost that edge - the team doesn't seem to come first anymore. The development of the players has taken priority - which is fine. I just don't want the club to lose that ethos we had - where everyone worked for one another to get a result.

And that doesn't mean we have to go back to our dour, defensive game-plan. You can go all out attack with everyone working for one another.

Bring back the socialist gameplan!!!! #forthegreatergood

Or am I over simplifying it in my post-GF depression?

WC don't accept mediocrity. Any year out of finals is a failure for them. We're happy to publicly announce 5-6 years of it. It's bullshit
Our acceptance of mediocrity seems to be directly related to the coach's expanding waistline. They have both increased dramatically over the same period.

Sorry, has everybody forgotten the recent wooden spoon finish west coast had in their millennium? And how long they held on to worsfold despite mediocre results? Their recent results have been great and they’re certainly way more successful than we are, but the short memories and self-flaggelation in here is amazing.

It was some numpty Melbourne supporter that bumped it. I too will reserve my rage until trade week has fully played out, but Fremantle is not making it easy.
and when did we find about the Weller pick 2 deal last year? Fair bit to play out yet. Think I will try and focus on other things til Wednesday.

haha. the melt thread rises. I will only melt, if deserved, after the final hour of trade week.
At the moment it feels like we kicked the first 5 goals in a game and are now under 2 goals ahead at quarter time

If we still end up losing, then yeah - melt the F away

Because a. Worsfold was a favourite son (they named their club champ after him) and b. he'd won a premiership.

Had Worsfold not made the finals in 2011 he would have been punted.
