Luke McPharlin: Back Up Back

-

For those people not sure why the football stopped after 10 games, it turns out there was some sort of early season, staggered bye thingy going on and not a week off out of respect for Pavlich’s 300th game. The good news is that that means the team is back into action again this week and we can all get excited about the influx of recovered players that traditionally follow the week off. Luke McPharlin will obviously be a handy addition to the defence, presumably at the expense of Alex Silvagni who is thinking of changing his first name to “At the Expense of Alex” to save time. Garrick Ibboston and Colin Sylvia have battled their way back into bench contention after extended stints on the sidelines waiting for the effects to kick in from first class leeches and snake venom that Fremantle were using to heal their various injuries. Brady Grey has also joined the bench after stringing a few games together for Peel. Matt deBoer is the only exclusion so far, with the bench needing to be cut down before the game.

You Be Ross: Western Bulldogs 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!"

Stats Cloud: Fremantle v Geelong

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 Send The Geelong Bunnies Hopping

Fremantle have always been a team that craves the big stage and with fans flocking from around the world to see Matthew Pavlich play game 300, they turned on the party tricks to humiliate Geelong, once again, and delight their hordes of supporters. The game opened with Matthew Pavlich slotting through a goal with a banana kick from the Matthew Pavlich stand, which was quite well received by the crowd, and continued with Fremantle slamming home 5 opening quarter goals to Geelong’s zero, including Matthew Pavlich’s 600th goal - again, quite well received. Once Fremantle had the Cats on the ropes, they kept pounding away, crushing their spirits with the traditional mid game strangle (not to be confused with Hayden Ballantyne mid-game dacking) before kicking on to win by a very tidy 32 points and rocket back up the ladder, poised to take back their spot in the top 4.

Ballantyne And the Bionic Gob

Look out Geelong! Hayden Ballantyne is back to run the Cats amok once again but this time he’s got a big arse bit of metal in his jaw, making him impervious to their traditional tactic of smacking him in the head. The Sandover Medallist was mysteriously hit in the head last week, resulting in a fractured gob but has been patched up and will run out for his captain’s 300 game. Luke McPharlin doesn't hold Pavlich in such high regard and has forgone radical temporary re-constructive of his leg that would have seen him able to hobble through the banner with Pav. Zac Dawson will play but it’s hard to say whether that’s out of respect for Pav or just because he’s got nothing else to do on a Saturday night. Alex Silvagni has managed to hold onto his spot in the presence of Dawson but Clancee Pearce and Hayden Crozier have been given the heave ho, with Tommy Sheridan rotated in.

Undermanned Dockers Kick Themselves Out of It...and so on

Down to their last handful of men, like the fabled 300 Spartans, Fremantle defiantly fought on against the top side to hold them back for three quarters until the battle took it’s toll and they were over run in the last to lose by 18 points. Fremantle were out played but not out classed, dominating the first half and controlling the game to take a 10 point lead into the long change. They let some chances go begging in the third quarter and the Adelaide pitch started to turn, with Port pushing but not managing to over take the stoic Dockers. But things went wrong for Fremantle in the last term, unable to hold Port back any longer and facing an increasingly suspicious group of umpires, they were overrun and went down by 18 points.
