...we had the rub of the green for the first three quarters, not sure what's going on in the last. Random decisions ruining what was otherwise a good game.

Freo 1-0 in 2020 derbies.

Yeah, you could almost note the minute Nissy's bag of cash got down to the maggots.

Now, now, fellas, the umpires are impartial. Money means nothing to them.

How about their throw ins to advantage. The ball gets knocked out deep in our forward pocket, the boundary ump moves in 10 metres and then heaves it over everyone to outside the 50. That bag from Nissy worked a treat - let him stump up extra to get Gibbo off her shoulder to the head charge.

In fairness, I think he was auditioning for a role in the men's league. That was one hell of a throw in.

Compared to the ones at the other end that went all of 5 meters.

They're supposed to come in 90 degrees to the boundary line curve, not 45 degrees. The angles were off all afternoon and only advantaged one team out there.

Watched the broadcast as couldn’t make it this week.

Noted both Fyfe and JLo shown at the ground giving support.

Before I get stuck into budgie supporters tomorrow about their club not supporting their AFLW team, can anyone confirm whether they’d wheeled out Simpson, Nicnat or some other plonk?

And when I read the worst in a coffee shop this morning, it was as though there hadn't even been a match. I mean, they listed influential players from both sides, but I don't think the headline mentioned a result. Now I know its just my usual conspiratorial thinking, but if by some miracle WC had won, I reckon a bit of a song and dance might have been made. It might even have gotten onto the back page...
