6 months later even post 2018 , I still agree with this . Of course I was stoked on 2006 but the overwhelming feeling was an extreme sense of relief . 2018 , on the other hand was unparalleled exhilaration


2018 Premiers
Totally agreed. 2006 was such a relief after that 2005 heartbreak.

2015 sucked on the day, but it was just a bad day and I was over it quick. 2005 stuck with me an entire year. Would have been awful to go down twice in a row.

2018 was just unbelievably surreal. Still have to pinch myself sometimes.

2008 was my lowest point. That is the only season that i recall constantly switching the tv off because we were that trash and it wasnt worth my time. The fact we came off a top 4 finish made it hurt more.
2009 and 2010 expectations were more realistic so i was accepting

2013 was tough.

Tipped for the flag by many after making finals the previous 2 seasons, we totally flopped and finished 13th.

Once the players stopped playing for Worsfold I was done watching. Some of the effort shown was laughably bad. Terrible season.



Sack woosha.

2013.

Woosha was one of my idols growing up. To rationalise as an adult that his time was done and to see the players stop playing for him had me very down. I watched every game in 2010 and was very vocal about us being a much better side than the ladder suggested and predicted we would finish top 8 in 2011 and potentially even top 4 so to see it all fall to pieces a couple of years later was tough.

Waters going down with injury (2012 finals) and the subsequent derailment of his career from that point onwards i also found tough to take. The way he played footy, his courage to stand up no matter the consequences and bounce back up from hits that would have left others leaving the ground on a stretcher embodied so many parts of how I live my life and the struggles that I have had that seeing him unable to get back after that rocked me in that seeing and knowing that sometimes pure intent, courage and strength of will just isn't quite enough.

1989 Round 15 versus Essendon, then not long after that come 1991 which was probably our best home and away season. Supporting West Coast is a bit like the weather, hang in there because pretty soon there will be sunshine.

Lowest point during recent times was the 2016 EF. Coming off a GF loss, we were expected to go one better. Instead we played our worst home Finals game in recent memory going down to the eventual premiers by 47 points.

Nic Nat doing his first ACL was also a low point as well as his injury in Round 15 last year causing him to miss the 2018 premiership.

But my lowest point as an Eagles fan was 2008. After losing Judd and Cousins, we slumped a 4-18 season and finished 2nd last in a then 16 team competition. The 135 point loss to Geelong in Round 13 showed us how far we dropped off.

2005 was hard to take. I hardly spoke until the 2006 season kicked off :$ 2015 was easier to take. Maybe because I'm older, maybe because it felt like we were there too early.

In 2010 I had to endure arrogant Freo flogs waving wooden spoons in my face. I told them we'd win our 4th flag before they won their first :moustache: As always, this beautiful club proved me right :thumbsu:

Late 2013 I was angry more than anything. Woosha deserved better.

Our lowest points would be the envy of most clubs :moustache:

The day one of my boys had the greatest spak attack of all time, he must of been 4 or 5, we were at the city end behind the goals when it was still grass, it just went on for an hour or so until the game started, it must of annoyed the shit out of the people around us. It was the first home game against Essendon after the Sheedy jacket wave and we won so it ended alright but murder was on my mind for a while.

2000, 2001 were tough. First time our team failed in the comp that I experienced. The 2008-2010 period though was our lowest point for obvious reasons. Worsfold's naivety over the whole Cousins saga and his lack of coaching abillity/list choices really were a lethal combination. Thankfully a decade on we reached the top again and that is just a distant memory.

Both '05 and '15 were kinda horrible in different ways. '05, stuck up north on a particularly hot day a few days after my first long term woman left. '15, a bestial hangover, cleaning the vomit out of my car while I saw the eagles get smashed. Hard to separate the two!

But yknow I'd almost say losing to Cwood in the '07 semis. Really felt like everything was coming to an end; I was too young to really remember 92 & 94 so that was hard to take

It might seem dramatic but I think the Gaff punch may have been the worst I’ve ever felt after a game of football

Hard to go past 2007 and then perhaps 2001 being the lowest points of this clubs history.

On the plus side, even after the emotion has faded a bit, I still think this was our best flag.

Just the entire 2007-2010 period really. Losing Judd and Cousins, losing Mainy, winning a spoon, losing 7 Derby's on the trot. They were hard times but I'm glad I stuck by the club, watching the club grow and work towards this flag has made it all worth it.

I vividly remember watching the Round 19 game against the Dogs at Etihad in 2009, we won by 5 points and it was our first win away from Perth since Round 21, 2007. Almost 2 full years without an away win, you bet your bottom dollar I cried tears of joy that day.

like how good is 06 when the assistants jump on woosha and he finally shows a smile for the first time in 12 years...... and we get robbed of that with Simmo
There is footage around, I think the official FB page put it up, of Simmo's reaction.

It's pretty similar to '06 from what I recall, everyone else jumping around like crazy except for the coach

The drug saga wasnt great and mainy passing was horrible. Yes we were a good team on the field but it never sat right with me all the other noise. When it all came crumbling down it was tough. That night in 08 against Geelong still hurts. We had litterally no soul. It wasn't pretty.

Up until Simpson came it just never felt quite right. Obviously we lost in 15. Then 16 and 17 were pretty ordinary years. It felt different their was a sense of respect in the group. Not taking anything away from the end result of 2006 but 2018 was the most I've ever enjoyed football. The fact we had no expectations we debut 7 or 8 guys and overcame so much.
