Geez footy is alright, really like the balance of the Lions side. Hipwood may be the absolute superstar of the league in a few years time, always takes a bit longer for big units to hit their stride and his peak could be anything.

I do kind of feel bad now everyones dunking on your team lol but not one would or should bemoan you for following your team. Friendly football tribalism is what makes AFL so good a lot of the time, so much history there.

The real scum are WCE supporters who harp on about "too many teams!!!#@$!" whilst sitting on their ivory tower in a two horse town, that poo poo makes me livid after seeing how shattering it was coming from a diehard Fitzroy family.

Calling Perth a 'two horse town' is being overly generous to Fremantle -Theoretically A- Football Club

Being inside Eddies head must be a trip. Biggest club therefor we must be right! I'm the biggest CEO personality therefor I must be doing well!

Héritier's twitter response this evening hits just about every point. In addition though, 1 premiership from the biggest club after two plus decades at the helm and a legacy of racism, heaps to be proud of there ey McGuire. Indigenous players make up 10% of the comp, interesting that none are on their list...

Feel sorry for the supporters, what a joke.

I feel like Collingwood, Bucks and McGuire took a lot of the goodwill they got from how they approached the 2018 season, especially a lot of the moments during the grand final itself ( Bucks consoling banner lady and his little chat with his distraught son in the changing room after, plus Eddie's words to the Eagles players after the game) and allowed that to paper over the absolute garbage fire going on behind the scenes. The nicer Buckley and just general mood of that 2018 team had me almost liking them. As a one-eyed WCE member it felt wrong. I couldn't hate them, and hating Collingwood used to come so easy to me.

As a contrast to Eddie, Trevor Nisbet has been the CEO of the Eagles since 1999, a year after McGuire got the job at the Pies. He's been at the top of the club all through our hosed mid 2000's, has the scrutiny of being at a similar sized operation as Collingwood under the media microscope of a two club ( one and a half tbh) town but does so quietly and favorably. You can easily separate the Eagles from Nisbet. I bet a lot of supporters from other teams couldn't even name him. You can't view Collingwood without seeing McGuire.

McGuire is his own hosed cult of personality, it clearly gets in the way of any sort of conciliatory processes the club has been needing to undergo for years. Can't see how they can do anything without his immediate removal.

There are better and more skillful footballers currently playing right now, but what Dusty does in this particular Richmond team puts him in rare air. He's probably the best chaos footballer of all time and the Tiger's whole setup thrives on it. Very few players can just decide they're going to win every contest for a 10 minute or so chunk and swing games of footy. Ben Cousins used to do that at his peak in the mid 00's, both of their abilities to out-effort everyone on the ground and win games of footy on their own shoulders consistently, has to place them well up the All-Timer lists.

My seats at Subiaco oval were right behind the benches. When Cousins was running red hot, even early in games, most of the time he would come off so physically hosed that he would have a spew. Then he would be back out there and do it all again. Martin was a rookie at the Tiger's while Cousins was there, gotta wonder if he learnt a few things, especially preparation and effort, from him in. Hopefully not everything from him though...

I respect the Crouch brothers for scamming the Crows for years by collecting meaningless 30+ possession games week in week out but somehow getting away with it and frauding their way to big paychecks. It's a pretty cool racket to be able to scheme and stat-pad between siblings.

Saints last night was just puzzling. Nonsense throw the ball forward shotgun football works well, Richmond are the proof of that and the Saints clearly can do it when they want to. Can't be fatigue or anything because they were playing against witches hats the week before for two quarters. Never really expected them to beat the Tigers but certainly didn't see that coming.

Heh, remember that game. Sitting right out in the open and due to my dumb footy related superstition of "it only rains if you bring wet weather gear" well, yeah... was more water than man by the end of that one. Cyril almost got us late, poo poo he was good to watch work around the ground live.

Also Willie Rioli is in drugs-based trouble again. Just before he was due to start training with the Eagles again.

Preeeeetty drat stupid from Willie. He'll get off with a fine but just where is your headspace at if you're deciding to get on a plane with weed and your name is fuckin Willie Rioli... It does sort of put to bed any doubt of his version of events when it came to his WADA/ASADA testing though, blokes clearly not very bright.

Honestly think the best thing for him is to get back into the club and system as soon as possible, don't delay his start to training or even playing. Help him out by getting him back amongst the playing group. He basically needs a full time minder.

Glad to see WCE legend Sam Mitchel will be head coaching at AFL level soon, he was huge for us. Integral part of the 2018 premiership, can see him coaching the Hawks for a very very long time.

Clucko surely just goes to whomever puts a huge paycheck in front of him and goofs around for a few years to have some fun and wrap things up yeah? Fremantle locked in.
