    Ironic we win it in a season where most see the top 5 as moreorless equal.

    Rich is in career best form heading into 2018 and Witherden is an absolute gun.

    Plenty of other positives we can take out of this year.

    Nonetheless we'd have taken Schache at 1 in 2015 and McCluggage at 1 in 2016.

    Doesn't mean the club has them as equal.

    Allison was a bargain. Could be a real weapon going forward.

    We have 3 players from the 2016 draft who were rated as potentially top 5 at some time in their underage year but slipped. Pretty good haul.

    If you didn't know where they were drafted last year it would hard to put them in their draft order.

    You'd be hard pressed to find anyone that wouldn't take Berry and Witho top 10. Allison gotta be top 20.

    Tairy Greene mentioned on his Tweeter that in 1998 we won the spoon and three years later we were premiers!

    Indeed. I thought Rich had a really good year. Didn't think his 'bad' games were all that bad. For mine he plays off halfback for the rest of his career.

    I thought tonight his run through the middle was super damaging. I hope he gets more chances in the middle next year.

    Reading the DailyMail online and have just seen a video of a young Freo fan about the same age as your little Lion, at their game ..... the poor little fella was putting his hand out for a high 5 from the players after the match and not one of them acknowledged him. His nan was trying to get their attention. He was the only Freo fan at that spot.

    I felt so sad for him and this is a perfect example of how important it is for player interaction and for the players to actually LOOK at the fans. Glad it wasn't our boys.

    Not exactly a positive post, but thought it a follow on to The Mellow Johnies post.....just the difference in approach to fans.

    We helped shape the 8. When we were 32 in the last quarter it looked like we were going to lose by 50 then we fought back and only lost by 13. Had that not have happened Melbourne make the 8 rather than Eagles. Maybe the Eagles can give us Jeremy McGovern as a token of their appreciation.

    Collingwood have extended bucks contract

    in 1998 we won the wooden spoon followed by Collingwood in 99
    In 2017 we won the spoon and with this decision Collingwood would have to be favourites for the spoon in 2018

    So surprised Collingwood extended, must have been the post bye wins that won him the contract. Suits me, great guy but i don't think he is a great coach imo.

    In good news for you Ceebee

    the year buddy has kicked 69 goals in 22 games.
    Hipwood has kicked 30 in 20 which if you gross up to 22 games is 33 goals. If you double that we sit at 66. Thats only three goals shy of Hipwood being half as good as buddy!! I think that is pretty close to qualifying as a positive under the previous definition above.
