Speaking of ass coaches, don’t we have to let them know by August 1st if they’ll be around next year? Could be an interesting week at cockburn central.

Don't yell "HAYDEN" like that.

I can't get the umpire yelling 'Hayden. Hayden, no. No. Hayden.' out of my head

Right , There is postulation about a suitable replacement coach.

I know this will be contentious., but....

...IF, - and please note "if' designates a query, not a belief - IF a bloke like, ... um,... Malthouse, was considered a fellow who could put a stop 'to all the rot" ( ie gameplan, skills, game day standards, club coaching structure, professionalism within the footy department etc), WOULD, we go there???

That is, install - perhaps, - our greatest nemisis??

I wouldn't even let mickey outhouse use the tradesmen's entrance.

Besides being old, bitter and irrelevant, take a look at his most recent performance at Carlton. He's done and dusted.

The problem with Steve Rosich is that his focus is always on failure rather than success.
He came to the club with an agenda to fix what he saw as the failings of the club.

He talked about sustained success but the focus was to remove the bad seasons that followed the good.

He asked people who weren't at Fremantle games what they didn't like about Fremantle, resulting in a rebrand to appease them.

He replaced a coach for little reason other than he was unfashionable.

This year he talks about eliminating the big losses from the previous season.

No talk about getting big wins or asking people what they like about the club, or being innovative or even bouncing back from a bad season to win a flag.

It's all risk mitigation and percentages. Which is why we sit solidly above the bottom of the ladder, with narrow wins and narrow losses, with a coach that is happy to kick 7 goals a game, who we won't sack because we'll lose face, a club never rising above our station and playing Queen and AC/DC songs for the rest of our existence.

We need to be much more bold as a football club. And old coaches counting their super are not that.

And then there was that trick question, buried in the mire of irrelevant dribble "Do you like the colour purple?" Um, sure, I guess I do; "Were you attracted to the Fremantle football club because of the purple?" What?

"RIGHTEO, we got too many colours - we gotta ditch that red and green stuff, and that anchor.....we gotta be UNITED BY PURPLE!"

United by purple, the Grape Fanta Supporters Club of the AwFL.

Freo was a bit of a giggle back in the day. A cobbled together (sorry) team thrown into the comp on a wing and a prayer. It never got going, and its quirks on the field became easy media fodder.

To me, that's what Rosich has been more concerned about; avoiding further ridicule. His attention seems to be on the image projected and driving how they are perceived. That's why they got rid of the symbols they didn't like. It wasn't progress, it was avoidance. You can also stop people laughing at your jumper by winning a lot.

Lyon is part of that, a bloke who does his best work in presser. So they don't come across as stupid, whilst still doing stupid things and calling it a process.

And those who have concentrated on the image, have completely forgotten what the heart and soul of Freo is.

Very insightful Drubbing, you've put into words what has been gnawing away at me. He lacks substance.

I wonder whether that need for approval also means short term decisions at the trade table which is causing friction with the football manager?

I don't think we'll win another game this year, look at our draw. So we're getting an early pick, I really hope and trust we do something decent at this year's draft.
