The $12 pie thing was a glitch and no one was actually charged that.

I'm not surprised, considering "fancier" pies were $7.50.


From friends who were at the stadium yesterday they were very positive about the actual sport watching.

NAB continues to kill it with their footy ad campaigns (despite them being a loving bank) and this is top notch work.

Once again the sponsors of the AFLW do a better job promoting the women's competition than the AFL does.

Speaking of... game day! FOOTY IS BACK FOR 2018 gently caress YES get your rear end to an aflw match this season it is free and it is classic suburban footy from the 90s. Download the aflw app too.

Still one of my favourite games, the Egg Andrew Wills running amok, beating the Roos at the height of their powers:

Freo won the game and laid 10 tackles total for the whole game. The Roos put on only 22 themselves.

I've watched a shitload of pre-season training documentaries etc. for NFL clubs and they don't do anything insane. They just train, watch film, train, watch film, train, watch film. It's intense physical training and preparation for the sport they play, but no stupid mind games. These insane mental tests need to go.

I don't see how being blindfolded in the bush prepares you for kicking a ball around in front of 100,000 screaming fans at the MCG.

This was my impression of professional US sports too, just physically train until you donít know how to gently caress up.

None of this psycho-babble garbage loved by MBAs and over paid consultants.

The story is a little more complex than I first thought, they knew that one of the girls would not survive more than a few hours at the 11 week scan due to a fatal condition which causes parts of the brain and skull to under develop. They seem like pretty amazing people in the way that they've handled the awful situation.

lol @ Freo wanting to rename a medal because it doesn't have one of their players names on it

"Nah I don't want the Brownlow, guy didn't play for our club."

Glendinning is a West Coast name, why would Freo want to keep that on the medal if they don't have to?

Call it the Fewster medal and be done with it

Because they have to? That's the point of the medal? Make one for the Freo home derby then and we can have one for each match per year, problem solvered.

Why do they have to? It's just the Eagles wanting to keep they're inaugural captain as the naming, I can see why they want it, but it makes no sense from a Freo perspective to keep it.

I agree having to two medals each year makes total sense, or call it the Glendinning-Gilbert medal or whatever

Gonna go ahead and say that we can compete for a premiership this year. That was a pretty good win.

e: Hurn is having a career year as well, finished atop the player ratings yet again


Both sides can take positives out of the game, unfortunately for us Walters did a medial, so will probably be out for a month.

I think having a more mcg like ground at home will end up helping both the WA sides at the pointy end of the season (I think Freo might sneak in the 8 if we can keep Sandi on the park while Darcy is getting himself right).

The more games I see of the Dockers this year I realise Alex Pearce is legit.

Also dunno why the Dockers shaved a dwarf from Lord of the Rings and let him loose on the football field this year.

Pearce was the player I was most excited about seeing play this year, he was just starting to really show how good he can be just before he broke his leg the first time.

Theyíve gone a fair bit backwards imo

I agree, they looked to be building something the last few seasons, showing glimpses, but the wheels have now just totally come off.





Speaking of the wheels coming off, Freo were bad yesterday. I was at the game, and boy did the young guys go into their shells, hesitate, and have a massive drop in intensity from the week before. I didn't think the Tigers were particularly great, but their gameplan is rock solid at this point, everyone knows what they're doing and what their teammates are doing, and they just rolled over Freo without much worry. But Fyfe was clearly BOG.
