Forgot to post this on Sunday, but I was at the game and sitting in the aisle the away coach walks thru getting out onto the ground. After the final siren, Adam Simpson took the time out of his way getting onto the ground to shake a young WCE fan’s hand and pat him on the head even though he was clearly disappointed with the result. Obviously it is a small act, but I thought I should pass it along as a sign of the quality person your coach appears to be.

I met Adam about 6 years ago becuase his daughter went to school with my then step daughter and went to each other's houses. Seemed like a pretty nice guy

Look can I just ask a question:

Have we become the West Coast Bulldogs or something while I wasnt looking?

Since Sunday we've had post after post from Bulldogs supporters in different threads giving their kudos and opinions on our side. If we had won that game they wouldnt be caught dead around here.

Now they're making posts on the board?

It was a good game guys. We shook your hands, now piss off. I hope we smash you later in the year over here.

Provided they don’t break any board rules, opposition supporters have and always will be welcome to post here.

If you see a post that crosses the line, report it and it will be dealt with appropriately

A thread started by a bulldogs supporter congratulating our coach for an act of kindness to a young fan crosses no such line

Gee. Reckon they’ve been nothing but respectful and constructive. They should be more than welcome.

You're being unreasonably precious.

I dont think its unreasonably precious to not want to be reminded of a close game we've lost, especially from oppo supporters. Guaranteed this wouldnt even be happening if we had won.

Like I said: good game, shake hands, piss off.

That’s a negative, campaigner.

They’re being gracious in victory, why can’t you be gracious in defeat?

That’s the way of the Freo board.

We’ve always been welcoming of oppo fans here provided they’re not dicks.
