There's No TomorabitoFor Lions

Fremantle are settling into a nice steady groove, picking up the four points every week and accumulating a handy percentage as they stalk their way into the top four. This week they’ve gone a bit crazy at the selection table though. They’ve cut loose with a few shandies and some Tia Maria Tim Tams and made a change. Thats right - a change. Into the side will be, oh, just Clancee Pearce. Tommy Sheridan is the player that’s been dropped because that’s what he’s in the side for. The Lions have been a touch uncouth with their selections, dropping three players including Jonathan “Mr Glass” Brown. With James Aish “rested” and Mitch Golby dropped. Daniel Merrett, Nick Robertson and Tom Cutler come in to stand around not getting the ball on their behalf.

You Be Ross: Fremantle v Brisbane

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: Richmond 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.

Toothless Tigers Do No Harm

Another game of football and another four points on the board for Fremantle, doing little but thinking about what they needed to do for a chance of September redemption, it was a cold and calculating Fremantle that sucked the life out of Richmond from the get go and did what was needed to hold the lead at the final siren. Hayden Ballantyne was one of those things that was needed. He put through a lazy half dozen goals after a busy week that involved him having to wear a suit, and shoes, to cover for the lack of tall defenders and the embarrassing tally of 12 goals conceded by the Fremantle backline. Most of those goals came in the last quarter, as the Tigers got a touch closer than some supporters would have liked, but there was never any danger of an upset and Fremantle cruised home to a 2 point win. Nat Fyfe was as good as always, David Mundy had the ball on a string and Colin Sylvia can now say that he has had a kick in a Fremantle jumper.

Sylvia and Silvagni Suit Up

Fremantle have set out to prove just how farcical the All Australian team has become, heading over to Richmond without their two All Australian defenders with Luke McPharlin out after “scans” revealed that he had a “knee” injury and wouldn’t be able to play against the highly “respected” Richmond “forward” line. Michael Johnson had previously been ruled out after he was subbed off after “injuring” his “knee” against the Adelaide “Football” Club last week. There was no shortage of blokes prepared to put their hand up to cover for the two All Australian defenders but Ross Lyon has gone with his favourite part time, replacement defender that doesn’t mind being subbed off if we’re ten goals up at half time in Alex Silvagni. Just for a bit of fun, he’s also thrown in MCG specialists Colin Sylvia into the team for his first game of AFL football that he will go into expecting to have a win.

Freo Grind Adelaide to a Pulp

Fremantle got a bit of a scare early, with Adelaide’s unfashionable attacking style of football catching the Dockers off guard and Fremantle’s forwards struggling from some sort of balance problem in front of goals. The Crows even went as far as taking a lead into half time but Fremantle quickly put a stop to that sort of shenaniganising, grinding the Crows down into a husk of a football team during the second half with their wall of defense before unleashing a devastating multi-pronged attack of Pavlich, Ballantyne and Dawson. The Crows were stunned by the cold, calculating way he Fremantle midfielders went about their business and struggled to understand the rigid discipline of the Fremantle defense but what left them aghast was the the versatility shown by Zac Dawson, who caught them unawares with a sudden run into attack and a goal which many have described as match turning. With the game in the bag fairly early in the last quarter, Fremantle cruised home for a 40 point win, poised to claim a spot in the top 4 by month’s end.
