Ba da dum dum dum and another one bites the dust

Greater Western Sydney’s season is in the toilet after Fremantle grabbed number two...wait, no..Fremantle step into number two...um, not that either… how about, as Fremantle move into second spot on the ladder. Fremantle produced yet another routine win as the AFL struggle to find an opponent that can actually provide a contest for the premiership bound Dockers, with the the Giants helping Fremantle to their biggest score of the season which included a second goal football extravaganza in the final term. The Dockers barely broke a sweat for the most part but the crowd did get quite excited when Anthony Morabito pulled off the green vest and ran onto Subiaco Oval for the first time since green and red were on the jumper. Hayden Ballantyne kicked a lazy 5 goals and Pavlich three very nice ones, with Ballantyne making an appointment with the tribunal after Tomas Bugg took a dive in the third quarter (how can you trust a man whos parents had such little regard for the letter H). The win pushed Fremantle past the Hawks and Cats on percentage with a game next week against bottom placed St Kilda sure to bolster the percentage a bit further.

Fremantle Rotate Their Defender

Fremantle’s annihilation of the leper clubs is expected to continue this weekend as a new from of Sydney head further west to fulfil their duties under the AFL’s tv rights agreement. Fremantle have decided to bring back Matthew Pavlich for a run around in the forward line, to keep his eye in, and Michael Johnson will return from what was once described as a season ending injury. Hopefully Johnson’s return is more successful than Luke McPharlin’s, who will be out again this week with a ‘calf’ injury he picked up in Darwin. Garrick Ibbotson was injured by the same calf and will also sit out this week. Anthony Morabito looks to have held his spot with Matt Taberner, Alex Pearce and Hayden Crozier thrown onto the extended bench. The Giants have made a lot of changes but you’ll just waste precious space in your head trying to learn their names.

You Be Ross: Fremantle v Other Sydney

Ross Lyon has his sights set on the flag this year but he's the sort of bloke who loves to get feedback from the general public, good or bad. So if you really want to be a true supporter of the club, then make sure you shout stuff out to him at the ground and give him some pointers on how to get this coaching caper done. But before you do your duty as a member and hurl advice in the direction of professional coaching staff, make sure you know what you're talking about or they might just right you off as a nutjob and miss out on some choice advice. Work the board, move the magnets around and when you think you've got it sussed, start practising yelling "Hey Ross! Ross! Put Sandilands in the goal square for a rest!"

StatsCloud: Melbourne v Fremantle

Numbers...you can't trust them. The Romans knew what numbers were up to and wouldn't have a bar of them. You can put your faith in a nice sturdy X but a 10, it's shifty. The only thing more iffy than a number is a statistic, they'll cut you open and rob you of your kidneys before you can say "aren't you supposed to drug me and put in a bath of ice first?". Unfortunately we're hooked on numbers though, we need them to work out how many kicks David Mundy had this week...and probably some other stuff too. The Dockerland Labs spent the summer pondering the problem and eventually, when the cricket was over, the fridge was empty and the clicker broke in everyone's pen, they came up with a solution - the stats cloud. A quick glance and you'll pretty much know everything about a game of football that there was to know, at least all the boring bits about it. The bigger the player's name, the more kicks, or marks, or tackles he had compared to his teammates.

Fish in Barrel Shot

It wasn’t a game that they’ll be talking about for long (well, actually, it’s Darwin; that’s all they’ll talk about) but Fremantle have sailed through with a massic 10 goal thrashing of Melbourne, barely raising a sweat in the process. The Dockers kept the Demons to just 4 goal for the match it a siren to siren flogging, with Nat Fyfe putting on a demonstration for the Northern Territory locals to make up for the withdrawal of the other drawcards Matthew Pavlich and Stephen Hill and Hayden Ballantyne dobbing a triple in game one hundred. Anthony Morabito was subbed on during the third quarter and made it through the rest of the match without anything falling off.

The Long Wait Is Over

The year was 2010; Mark Harvey was the coach of a team that wore an anchor over a red, green and purple jumper, Facebook was cool, Ben Cousins was a thing, a young Julia Gillard was settling in to The Lodge, people were still prepared to pay money to see Zach Galifianakis in a film and Anthony Morabito was playing AFL Football. They were simpler times in many ways, which is why Fremantle have chosen to take the big bloke up to Darwin to try him out in the country to see how he goes before giving him a run in the city (for some reason Fremantle are playing in Darwin this weekend). Obviously as well as getting Morabito on the park there’s that little issue with no defenders that Fremantle have been grappling with. They’ve had a look around the list and seem to have come up with a bloke by the name of Luke McPharlin, who those in the know reckon goes ok up back. Matt Taberner has mysteriously injured himself and will miss out and Clancee Pearce has been rotated back to Peel.
