Davo - little known fact is that the ladder is like a game of Jenga. The more games clear you get, the wobblier the top of the ladder gets. Sydney knows this and threw the game on purpose.

Seriously, though, I reckon if we are in a GF, Sutcliffe will be playing. Just a gut feeling. He's been there before and wants another shot, and will work his way back to best form.

Easy there PK, forwards play about 40 metres in front/behind the ball and not necessarily in the forward line and if they plonked him there (while he planked his opponent) he would be matched up anyway and he's not the fastest man on a lead but hey you wouldn't want to get in his way. But it would be an interesting exercise just leaving one big fella in the forward line about 35 metres from goal – it could change modern day footy and could be just what Roly might do.

That Lachie Weller just looks like a thug, don't ya' reckon.

Standing there in the forward line
Waiting for the whistle chime
Cause he can't buy a free
The man in the orange shirt hurries by
As he catches poor Lachies eye
Just for fun he says "earn a free"

Thats just the way it is,
Some things will never change
That's just the way it is,
But don't turn into a ducking Shuey.

(Apologies to both BH & The Range)

Is that for real Genius? 7-23 and you win by 62 pts?
The AFL umps must have been having a word to their WAFL counterparts.

I'm sure Roly had a talk to the umpires and told them to teach the blokes how to get ready for the AWFL by not paying Free Kicks. Get over it guys... its the way of the world.

We have depth aplenty, someone else has already mentioned APerace holding down Johnos spot as well as doing a superb job of covering for our second and third choice tall defenders. Ross has played youth and made changes as he has seen fit, two things he is regularly criticized for. It seems he cant win.

Lets not forget footy is played by humans not robots and sometimes other teams actually provide a very intense contest. All teams at all levels have periods when they are up and periods when they are down. If our worst football has resulted in three wins from four poor games I will take that any time. To quote the great Odball from Kelly's Heroes " enough with the negative waves, have a little faith baby".

I think someones said it already but part of the reason a lot of our games are close is because we're the team to beat at the moment. Teams are wanting a crack at us, wanting to beat us and doing what they can to try. And they keep coming up short except Richmond (who are this years norf).

We've played finals like games a fair bit already and it's only round 12! We're going alright.

Depth, schmepth.

Let's have a look at it. How many team s have been able to back up after a Freo game for a win?
The list runs to
Geelong - beat Gold Coast by 9 points
Adelaide - beat Carlton by 9 points
and the almighty and pleasurably awesome West Coast who beat the Brisbane lions by 53.

Nobody else. Except Freo. Ten times.

So it would seem that you tend to cop a bit of punishment in trying to keep up with Fremantle, they still beat you and then you lick your wounds for a while unless your soft draw pits you against a limp lettuce leaf the next week.

The weagles is a bit of an asterix game as well. We basically stopped playing in the second half so they had a bruise free game... That and Brisbane is useless...
