StatsClouds: Fremantle v Other Sydney

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 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.

Captain Blood Back To Finish The Job

Punchy Pavlich has been given permission to return to AFL football after serving several weeks on the sidelines for, presumably, killing an Eagles player. For those who don't remember, Pavlich is the captain of the Fremantle Football Club and was once highly regarded as a handy utility player but in recent years has been used as a forward and more recently as the bloke who holds the door open for the players. He made a much anticipated comeback a few weeks ago, after several on the sidelines, but was quickly rubbed out by the tribunal and has spent the last month complaining about the umpiring in the cricket, with good cause. Ross Lyon hasn't seen much of Pavlich in his time as Fremantle coach but is expected to give the big fella a run in the forward line, relatively speaking. Clancee Pearce will miss out with a calf injury while Garrick Ibbotson, Jess Crichton, Tom Sheridan and Hayden Crozier have been added to the bench. The Giants have made some changes too but stop pretending you know who any of them are.

You Be Ross: Fremantle v Giants

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!"

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.
