    When I get sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead - Barney Stinson

    There's too much negativity in the world today, so I thought we could do with a thread for all the little positives in our lives. Real positives. No passive aggressive positives (I'll be modding this thread hard).

    Obviously it's Fremantle football themed, but if you happen to have an awesome vanilla slice, or something else great in your day, feel free to share it in here.

    I thought I'd start this with a couple of positives out of yesterday's game.

    Having Fyfe back. It might take a few weeks to fully get his mojo back, but gee it was good to see him playing out there without being injured or not quite 100%.

    Our youngsters stepping it up. Langdon's looking the goods. I might be biased, but he's got a good kick for goal, and a really good footy brain, and yesterday was the start of him really asserting his position in the team. Weller off the backline was a great sight to see. When he first started playing there I was worried he was going there to die, but he's really taken the position on. He's fast, he's tough, and really really ridiculously good looking.

    If we can get more ball to my buddy, we are going to score more goals.

    1. Blakely did well in a position I thought he could never play well in;
    2. B Hill won't be that bad next time;
    3. S. Hill looked much better than anytime last year;
    4. I thought our backline (although poor) wasn't as critically poor as last year - the movement overall felt better than last;
    5. McCarthy was lively and will fit well into our forward line IMO and won't squander as many chances next time
    6. Mundy was back to some of his better form
    7. Darcy, Strnadica, Logue - when they are ready in two years time......

    Round 1 2017 was better than Round 1 2016.

    Stephen Hill was pretty great. Could see some ripper performances from him this year. Really is amazing to watch when he's on.

    I thought Ibbo looked a lot better than he did last year.

    McCarthy is one of the most talented players on our list. After a season to get to speed he is one preseason away from dominating the half forward line as a roaming medium tall, then dropping deep to crumb

    CMac actually kicked 2 lazer beams into the 50 as well.

    Kid can play. Next week it'll be more like 5.1 instead of 1.5...

    In the light of day, I think things like the turnovers in our defensive fifty and the poor misses on goal obfuscated what our true progress is. Our self belief deflates easily and it was interesting hearing Belly talk on the ABC before the game about how when he came back from North, a big difference was that North always thought they could win it, whereas we always thought we could lose it, even if we were ahead. I wonder how the mentality is passed along from one era to another. Anyway, the positive thing is that if we can stop the turnovers in our defensive half and give ourselves more space to be creative in the forward half, I think we'd have a better idea of how we're going overall, and I think it might not be so bad.

    McCarthy kicked 1.5 but he had plenty of the ball.

    Freo will get more than 4 wins this season

    In one half of footy - he took 2 quarters to get warmed up.

    He'll be better next week.
