The post where the 'wope' and 'wock' trope began was now so long ago that it's apparently too far back in the archives to be retrieved on a search. But it's timely to issue a reminder that it concerned a 3-year old BellforPM-let, eyes shining with wonder, giving her awestruck account of attending the first game to me and her baby sister.

That game was against Essendon.

Both BellforPM-lets have long flown the coop and have lives of their own. It feels like there will be grand-BellforPM-lets running around before our team plays finals again, let alone makes the big one.

So it's wetwo 'thank-the-members' wound and the grownup BellforPM-lets are back in town and coming to the game. For the first time in years we will all be there again, with a couple of plus-ones. And I long to see the wock, the wope and the wanchor. I want to hear the Volga Boatmen chant and the cheer squad drums. I want it to be like the days when going to the footy was fun, win or lose, with the crazy carnival laugh-a-minute atmosphere, instead of the bland corporate noise-fest that gets served up after the ordeal of getting to Optus.

And maybe if the cowbell lady brings her gear, and gives it a shake every now and then, it will remind Peter Bell, wherever he is sitting, of the days when the Dockers outfit had character, and a heart and soul.

(Needless to say as Dockers diehards we're well accustomed to disappointment...but we still keep a flicker of hope alive that one day we'll get our club back)

You guys can take your silly jumper, song and pre-game routine that turned us into the laughing stock of the competition.

Me, I'm sticking with the sustained success.

He wanted to know what sustained success looks like. I was just describing it to him as it was officially defined by our CEO.

You can’t fault his logic. It’s like Japan saying they’ve won one of the past two World Wars.
