StatsClouds: Carlton 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.

Fremantle Put an End To The Blues

Fremantle have soared into Premiership favouritism with a systematic demolition of the once fancied Carlton Blues and their 25 time failed coach, Mick Matlhouse whilst other teams of note appear to be crumbling under the weight of the business end of the season.

It wasn’t a pretty game but this time that wasn’t of Ross Lyon’s design. Fremantle went in hard, throwing themselves at the contest and the man, with Carlton following suit and trying to out muscle Freo in the hope they would wilt under the pressure. They didn’t.

Carlton took an early lead thanks to some generous support from the men in fluoro green but the Dockers, as is their preference, kept chipping away until the scoreboard eventually fell in their favour. By half time, Fremantle looked on target for a hard fought but uninspiring ground out victory.

But things went wrong quickly in the third term. Carlton kicked two early, easy ones and the Fremantle line were looking vulnerable. That’s when everything was turned on it’s head. Like the Ewok army bringing down the evil Empire, the sublime skills of Michael Walters, Hayden Ballantyne and Lachie Neale in front of goals, took Carlton by surprise and changed the tone of the match from a defensive slog to a free flowing shootout, relatively speaking. The midget brigade ran amok, Carlton run out of legs and the Dockers cruised in for a 36 point win.

Freo Head East At Full Pinching Strength

Fremantle will head over to Melbourne this weekend at full pinching force, with the return of Hayden Ballantyne after a few weeks off waiting for his hamstring to regrow. Ballantyne will come in to replace Cameron Sutcliffe who’s pinching skills have left a lot to be desired in his games to date. He’ll benefit from some time back at East Fremantle where Stephen Dodd is expected to take him under his wing. The Blues will still be an opponent to be respected, with their captain not only handy with a pinch but deft of hand when it comes to finding another man’s eye socket. Carlton haven’t made any changes to the side that phoned in their game against the Giants last week.

You Be Ross: Carlton 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!"

Freo All Business At Business End of The Season

Fremantle have shut the gate on Adelaide’s season with a fiery 22 point victory over the South Australian ponces. The Crows threw everything they had at the Dockers, including a few punches before the siren and looked like making it a long, cold night for the Fremantle faithful who’d turned up. That lasted all of 10 minutes before Freo hit their stride, took a lead into the first change, pushed it out to 4 goals by half time and strangled the Crows for the rest of the night to take the four points. Michael Walters put on a bit of a show for the fans in the first quarter but Nat Fyfe broke the awesome metre when he started rolling in the second quarter. Aaron Sandilands didn't kill anyone but appeared to avoid damaging any part of his lower limbs. Which is almost as good.
