Probably not a pass for mine, that was a GF appearance. Sure we went well this season but we should be looking at premierships with our current squad and where it sits. Apart from some injuries to key defenders which we covered pretty well (and even helped us in the case of Dawson) we didn't receive anything like we have in previous years. The Fyfe injury hurt and we were decisively worse when MJ was out but he came back for the business end.

I still look back at 2010 and our results with so many young and incredibly skilled players and wonder how we don't have a couple of premierships already.

Simon: I've always had balls you've just never seen them.

The disappointing aspect is that we could actually pass and mark back in 2013.

Finish top of the class and fail to attend the exam. I'd say that's a fail.

Unfortunately I think we're only allowed one major box ticked at s time. 2013, GF appearance. 2015 Mac Trophy., like go back to all the monkeys we've got off our back, only one at a time. Or is that just me & how I sum up the season.

PS So far I haven't snotted any Budgie fan this season but I have been out of State.

Given the 4 year plan when we knifed Harvey to bring in Ross was to win a premiership then the answer has to be a resounding Fail for the season, the fact we made a GF in 2013 was probably ahead of expectations, possibly a result of our list being better than RTB actually gave it credit when he arrived, the straight sets exist last year and home prelim loss this year can only be seen as failures. Steps have been made in the wrong direction, what is clear is that we have to change how we play in 2016, with the reduced rotations it will be incredibly hard to maintain our pressure game for whole year.

From the opening post article;
"End-to-end
Fremantle’s ability to move the [ball] from behind centre was a weakness across the season, ranking 14th for generating an inside 50 from a defensive 50 chain and 18th for generating an inside 50 from a defensive midfield chain."

This to me is clearly Freo's biggest problem.

There's been a great deal of talk most of the season about Freo's problems in the forward line, yet there seems to be little acknowledgement that West Coast have the same players they had in 2014 but have been far more dominant with their scoring in 2015. That is, just blaming the quality of players in the Forward line maybe missing the actual problem. Given Freo's dominance in stoppages, hit outs, clearances and contested possession, yet still poor in inside 50s to me is a startling sign that ball movement forward is the major issue. The current reliance on D.Pearce, S.Hill, Fyfe and Mundy for i50s is too high. There needs to be a greater contribution from other areas within the team.
Gone to bigfooty where there's fewer Docker Haters.

The AwFL conspire to change the rules because they have no idea what footy is, and they don't really care. All they care about is keeping their mates at CH 7 happy.
