Stats Clouds: Brisbane 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.

Fyfe and Barlow not missed as Fremantle Smashes Lions

Fremantle have concluded the Away section of the Home & Away season with a routine demolition job on the hapless Brisbane Lions. Even without Nat “Fisticuffs” Fyfe and Mick “Brittle Bones” Barlow, Fremantle’s midfield barely broke into a sweat as they carved up the Gabba to allow the locals to watch Hayden Ballantyne and Michael Walters play a game of Duelling Small Forwards, attempting to out do each other every time the footy headed into the Dockers’ forward line. Matthew Pavlich got out of the way, withdrawing at the last minute due to a “quad” injury (obviously the run of late calf injuries was starting to look suspicious). Fremantle had the game sewn up by the 20 minute mark but fulfilled their contractual obligations to finish off all four quarters, winning by 58 points in what was an inconsequential game in the scheme of the season. Fremantle now have a simple equation in front of them - win next week and they finish in the top 4. Lose and they don’t.

Ballantyne In To Replace Hollywood Brigade

The good news is, Michael Barlow is off to see a tailor. The bad news is that he didn’t pay his the bill last time he went to the tailor and some blokes were sent around to break Barlow’s thumb which will see him out for two weeks but hopefully we won’t have to watch his bum crack through the finals. Nat Fyfe is also in some strife, although in his case it was he who was dishing out the fists of justice which, after a few hours of arguing otherwise, is worth a 2 week rest. The good news is that Hayden Ballantyne is back to cover for the two of them after missing last week with a bit of a leg based issue. Joining him on the extended interchange bench will be Nick Suban, Matt de Boer, Garrick Ibbotson and Jack Hannath with three players to be axed from the squad before the game. The Lions have brought in Ashley McGrath for a send off game and a few other blokes who probably won’t be around bast the 30th.

You Be Ross: Brisbane v Fremantle

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!"

Start Embroidering The Flag...or however you make them

Start submitting the preliminary designs for approval by the planning subcommittee to be processed through the in house counsel design working group to gain a hearing to the have the revised plans informally ticked off on for the flag pole. It’s coming home to Fremantle. The Dockers declared their intention to win the premiership, with a stunning display of Australian Rules Football over the reigning premiers at Subiaco Oval. As if often the case with teams travelling to venues they rarely play at, the Hawks had some issues with the wind in the opening quarter and will presumably be talking about how unlucky they were not to have kicked straight. Everyone else knows that bad kicking is consubstantial with bad football and Fremantle’s pressure was what made the normally composed Hawks lose their bottle. The Fremantle midfield were back to their best, turning ball clearances into works of art, while a young Matthew Pavlich proved himself a possible talent of the future, kicking 5 goals in the unusual role of centre half forward. The win leaves Fremantle in 4th position on the ladder but within striking distance of third and an outside chance of starting September at home.

Will Walters or Won't Walters

Luke McPharlin must be starting to regret ever signing up with Twiggy and Gina in that cattle station venture, with yet another calf injury putting him on the sidelines for the all important match against the Hawks this weekend. Alex Silvagni has been given the nod to start at centre half back in McPharlin’s place but there’s always a chance that he’ll be caught off guard by Cato and some point and be ruled out with a suspicious sounding injury. The big news is still to be revealed though, with the long Sunday bench not giving much away on whether or not Michael Walters will be back in the purple this week or slogging it out in the Teal. Tendai Mzungu’s return from injury is also sketchy, with Walters, Mzungu and Matt Taberner joining Danyle Pearce, Matt de Boer, Hayden Crozier and Max Duffy on the bench. Hayden Ballantyne’s tight hamstrings appear to have been sorted out with some number 11 lacky bands and Matthew Pavlich has sorted out his double vision.
