You Be Ross: West Coast 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!"

Ballantyne and Barlow But No Morabito

Reports of Fremantle had man Anthony Morabito’s return to the AFL look to have been greatly exaggerated with the bruising Fremantle midfielder not named to play against the Eagles this weekend. Michael Barlow has had his name thrown onto the team show however, although they’ve snuck him onto the extended interchange bench to keep the other mob guessing and the Freo supporters from sending envelopes of white powder to club officials. Fremantle hard man Hayden Ballantyne will be back into the team after serving his week on the sidelines for, well, no has quite been able to explain what it was for yet, while Alex Silvagni and Jack Hannath have beengiven a seat next to Barlow on the bench. Matt de Boer has been given the chop, presumably because it was too much effort finding lowercase letters for his name on the jumper. The Eagles have technically made some changes too but at the end of the day, a witches hat is a witches hat.

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.

Fremantle Expected to Learn From Loss and Move On.

Fremantle have slipped down into the General Admission section of the ladder with an effort against the North Melbourne Kangaroos that lacked many of the key components of football, such as marking, kicking and holding on to the gentleman from the other team who has the ball. Freo never really got going, once again falling victim to the Kangaroos uncanny ability to fill the space at Subiaco Oval and kill off the Dockers run. It was a great start by the Dockers, with early goals seeming to come easy as a packed house settled in for a confidence boosting win but some courageous umpiring decisions kept the Roos in the game at quarter time and they clung to Fremantle for the rest of the game before finally squeezing past in the last quarter while Freo flapped about, desperately trying to scavenge a goal. The good news for Freo is that next week is the Derby so an easy four points will help them regain their footing before launching themselves back up the ladder in the weeks ahead.

Welcome to the Pinch

Ryan Crowley will have his work cut out for him this week, having to carry most of the pinching load, after Fremantle Hard Man Hayden Ballantyne was ruled out for a week for, well, who could actually say what it was for. The point is he’s out and Brent Harvey isn’t going to pinch himself (at least not until after the game when he’s dobbing to the tribunal). Harvey is expected to get a hostile reception from the home crowd, who will be fired up for the historic anniversary edition of Bogan Easter (it’s two weeks since AC/DC broke up), after his infamous claim that he had been pinched 300 times by Crowley. Fans are being encouraged to bring their own clickers to keep count and the club installing a giant inflatable abacus above the scoreboard to keep track of the pinches. WIth Ballantyne out the club have enforced the One Hayden out, One Hayden In rule so Hayden Crozier will come into the team. Matt Taberner has been dropped because it was Tommy Sheridan’s turn in the rotation.

Sydney Too Crowded For Fremantle

There were no resurrections, saving of the righteous or Easter miracles for Fremantle in their trip to the SCG this year, although there defense was quite holy at times. Fremantle fought out a classical SCG scrapfest, where space is hard to come by and football is always the loser but it was the Swans who took the chocolates, with Fremantle struggling to kick goals and failing to stop the Swans from doing it at the other end. The Dockers couldn’t score a goal in the second quarter and took their time about it in the third, falling six goals behind before finally kicking into gear to kick some late goals. Within striking distance in the last quarter, Fremantle let the Swans kick a couple of early ones before dobbing three in a row to build some excitement but they couldn’t go on with it and finished 17 points the lesser side. On a positive note, Fremantle hard man Nat Fyfe did not hospitalise anyone in his return from suspension and, as yet, has not been reported.
