You Be Ross: Fremantle v Port Adelaide

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!"

StatsClouds: 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.

Freo Give Melbourne Long Kiss Goodnight

The Dockers moved another week closer to winning the flag, handing out another shellacking to one of the leper teams the AFL keep around to sell tv ads. The Dees weren’t afforded the swift, clean death that was afforded to Greater Western Sydney last week, however with Fremantle opting for a slow painful death for their one time rival. Merely a shell of a football club, many people expected Fremantle to take on a more benevolent attitude towards Melbourne, entertaining the long suffering Melbourne supporters with their fancy skills and exciting goals from the half back line but, instead, Fremantle took their time, chipped away at the Demons until their cries for mercy were finally met and the Dockers kicked on to a 95 point win. Ballantyne and Pavlich kicked a lazy 4 goals each while most of the Fremantle players just used the game as a chance to get a look at the G before the finals. Aaron Sandilands copped a bit of a knock to the head and was subbed out early, mainly because there wasn’t enough gauze to wrap his head up to stop the bleeding. Hayden Ballantyne copped a bit of a knock to the arm and wasn’t happy, but they’ll just pull a replacement out of the toy box and swap it out of it gives him any trouble.

Dockerland Budget: Melbourne v Fremantle

Fremantle To Give Hill a Run

Fremantle continue to blood some up and coming players as they wander through the softest month in the history of football fixtures. Last week it was a young fella by the name of Pavlich, or Pavlick or some such, this week it’s a local boy (well, if you count West Perth as local. Which most normal people don’t) by the name of Stephen Hill. Hill is described as a hard working utility type player who is a handy runner over a hundred metres. No one has been omitted from the team that trounced Other Sydney last week but Hayden Crozier has been given his spot back on the extended bench with Matthew Taberner also included, presumably to psychologically torture Silvagni. The Demons have brought in Max Gawn, Jeremy Howe, Sam Blease, Cameron Pedersen and David Rodan but what does it matter.

Freo Hand Out Greater Western Shellacking

Fremantle have handed down a record breaking shellacking to the team from the crap part of Sydney, embarrassing Kevin Sheedy in his last effort in the Subiaco Oval coach’s box and chipping away at the percentage difference between them and the team from the nice part of Sydney.

When the siren sounded to start the match, Frep were all business. They had the first goal on the board inside 30 seconds and another not long after that. Not concerned with their opponent’s position on the ladder, the Dockers threw everything they had at the Giants and the first quarter was an exhibition in unrelenting pressure. The Giants barely had a kick, let along a kick near the goals and Freo put through 6 unanswered majors in the first term.

When it started getting ugly in the second quarter, and Ross Lyon started getting giddy by the 8 goal margin, Freo relented slightly to give the young Giants a look in. The Giants had abit of fun and pegged back the margin slightly but, to their credit, they realised Fremantle were being generous to them and decided to step aside in the second half to let the Dockers claim their biggest ever winning margin.

All but a few defenders and David Mundy ended up kicking a goal for Fremantle, with the final margin resting at 113 points and the Dockers firming for favouritism for the flag...at least around Fremantle way.
