I always assumed it was Clive or at least Clive's idea.

Let's be honest here, WTF can you do for a mascot that has the nickname Dockers?

Love Freo, don't like Dockers. The amount of merchandise, songs, mascots, etc we could have had if we were the Freo Pirates compared to Dockers is huge.

How about Fremantle Spudshed. Merchandise and sponsorship all in one our mascot can be a giant spud.

There are so many problems with Johnny, but maybe I'll start with my top 3.

i. He's secretly an Eagles supporter. How hard is it to find a person to spend a few hours prancing around in a suit that we have to get the Eagles guy to do double-duty (except at Derbies when he chooses to be the Eagle boofhead)

ii. What the hell does a surfy dude have to do with Freo? It's like someone at Freo saw that Poochy the Rockin' Dog episode of The Simpsons and thought 'that's exactly what we need!'.

iii. His hair looks like Kraft Singles.

Look, I know it's a tough gig coming up with a mascot for the Dockers, but surely we could do better. Perhaps I've mentioned this before, but we could whack some chevrons on this dude, for example. I'm pretty sure Astley Baker Davies know how to move some product too.

The age of the mascot has gone, along with cheer-leaders, clackers and pom poms.

You, my friend, may be the last of the sympathisers of that lineage which includes a former maths teacher from my high school who quietly had a second gig on weekends as Wilbur Wildcat for a time.

Wilbur the Wildcat was a legend, I remember seeing the wildcats in around 85, they were still playing at perry lakes and some bloke came along in a gorilla suit, he ran on the court whilst Wilbur was doing his half time shtick and they got into a wrestle and their heads fell off as they rolled on the ground. It was comedy gold.

CA, without sounding like I am trying to appease the moderator, it should have been the Freo Sharks from day 1

Grandpa Pig as a mascot-haha!

And Raggy agree. Something nautical with a bit of oomph! Sharks, Pirates, Kraken, Buccaneers....... There are plenty of people who don't really even know what a Docker is.

Short memories - even though the Painters and Dockers union was deregistered a couple of years before Fremantle got onto the paddock, it still has a notorious lingering presence in Freo. I like it - I just wish we would stand up to overwhelming odds like they did, they never conceded an inch without a fight.

Along with the club song, I think we could have done better with the nickname. It’s never too late to change a name, just ask the Redskins and Indians in the the good ol’ US of A (although the rationale and subsequent pressure that drove those changes has been significantly more than we could ever expect at Freo!!)

Daniel Rich has taken civil action to force the Toronto Raptors to changing the arms on their mascot.

CA, I reckon there would would be 2 or 3 that would not know what a kraken is, as well. Just saying.
