Play youth and tell the recruits who haven't performed and players who are on one leg the the gig 's over.
The rebuild excuse is something a club uses when the club didn't and didn't recruit gun players.
I'm happy with I have seen this year with the hardness of the tackles from the the young guys.
Tomorrow is ours.

Fremantle's injuries for the match this week have been listed as TBC.

That has to be Peter Bell taking the ****.

And that’s the thing. The same club that will pressure you into donating a thousand or more membership dollars to the club in it’s ‘hour of need’, to become a ‘Freo forever hero’ is the same club that treats you like an absolute imbecile by week in, week out , classifying it’s best players as ‘tbc’ or ‘tba’ when they are, as usual, unavailable. Are they dead? Hit by a car maybe? Is there a doctor in the house? It’s incredibly disrespectful to the fans and it’s strictly a Freo thing- no other club really does it. Adelaide did for a while until media and fan pressure put a stop to it.

I couldn’t get my money back fast enough.

Paid my money and don’t feel like I’m being treated like an imbecile.

Yeh, we’ve all had enough of keeping players on the injured list just for the fun of it.

Belly is doing a great job.

What's the difference? We have one every year.

Then you'd appreciate, Noddy, that if someone has negative feelings about an organisations communication, then it's probably good thing to address rather than just perpetuate an attitude that - Well it doesn't effect me so it's probably not real.

I don’t think the club is taking the pi** with reporting injuries, but not wanting to risk a scolding from Shane, I’ll add that I can understand why some supporters might believe they are.

I chose not to ‘donate’ to the club. I was prepared to use the opportunity to carry out what my wife says is a regular end-of-season threat not to renew membership, but, when push came to shove, I couldn’t, because I enjoy the whole going to the footy experience too much.

I think the disliked and unlamented combo of ex-CEO, ex-Football Manager and ex-Head Coach left behind a deep-rooted legacy that will, unfortunately, take time to get rid of, but, fortunately, contracts are up at the end of this season. I have reason to hope that fans concerns are being heard and understood, and changes will be made among support staff in the critical areas of injury diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation, that seem a bit lacking at the Dockers, at least compared with other clubs.

I went to the game last night and was a bit surprised by how many loudmouth WCE ‘supporters’ were in the crowd. As always, the widespread one-eyed ignorance on display was a bit much. With few exceptions, those wearing yellow and blue are shockers. They sneer, they jeer. As often as not, at their own. Their only interest seems to be in seeing the opposition (the Dockers were constantly referred to as “muppets”) humiliated. I don’t think that this is the attitude of the average Dockers fan. I think, maybe, most of us go along to the footy in the hope our team wins, but just as importantly, watching a good quality game.

Considering that Freo has a new, untried coach with a new approach and a significant number of experienced 1st choice players injured, the team isn’t doing too badly. There was plenty to enjoy, plenty to groan at, some outstanding moments, but also the sort of unintentional comedy (from Taberner) that a Dockers game wouldn’t be complete without. I actually enjoyed it, despite losing to the other mob, which is something I can’t say was true after a lot of Ross Lyon coached games, even with a win.

So glad I didn’t walk away.

I don't think they were taking the ****. That was a joke. They put TBC because they don't want scrutiny.

We have been leaking members for 4 years though and we are broke. Maybe we've been doing a couple of things the wrong way.

There’s always hope that things will get better, Shane.

Why do we bother, otherwise?

Do you really think they don’t want scrutiny, or do you think they just don’t know? How many of last week’s TBAs would you be comfortable putting a range on? I suppose we could do what some other clubs do – add ‘indefinite or a range like 4-8 weeks – but looking at our list there are a few unknowns:

Sean Darcy Concussion I think they genuinely had to wait and see.
Hayden Young Ankle He just suffered the injury, but it looks long-term. TBA seems fair enough.
Griffin Logue Toe They’ve only just diagnosed it as turf toe, and those injuries have a highly variable prognosis.
Joel Hamling Ankle Needed a second surgery, so I can see why they might want to see how it plays out a bit.
Alex Pearce Ankle Has chalk for bones. I’d just put indefinite.
Sam Switkowski Back i don’t know much about back injuries, but it doesn’t seem like an injury with linear progress.

I don't know about you Morgan, but if I consulted a medical professional with any of those injuries or conditions, I'd be expecting and demanding a far better prognosis than 'TBA', particularly after the umpteenth visit.
