    Farewell Jesse Hogan

    I’m not one to sensationalise, but do we honestly think he’s the answer at FF. Trade him for two first rounders while he has some currency !

    Run home to Finals - 2018

    West Coast Eagles spearhead Josh Kennedy opens up on latest shin injury Chris Robinson and Bridget LacyThe West Australian Tuesday, 31 July 2018 9:34AM Simpson speaks 1:54 | 7 News Perth Simpson speaks Play Video West Coast coach Adam Simpson speaks after the weekend loss and ahead of the derby. West Coast spearhead Josh Kennedy has revealed a knee to the shin from teammate Tom Cole as the reason he’ll miss this weekend’s derby - and possibly beyond. Kennedy didn’t fly to Hobart for the Eagles’ loss to North Melbourne due to the incident at training last week, with the forward all but ruling himself out of a return against Fremantle on Sunday. Speaking to 6PR this morning, Kennedy said the latest knock had left him sore following the hairline fracture at the top of the fibula on the same right leg that kept him out of action earlier in the season. “The previous knock I had... I just got another knock at training, which was not on the spot but around that area,” he said. “It’s pulled up a bit sore, and we kind of thought it would pull up a bit better from (last) Thursday to Saturday, but it didn’t. “To get another knock and not be able to run, turn, lead or participate in training was disappointing.” Josh Kennedy won’t face the Dockers.Picture: Getty Images Kennedy outed the training culprit as Cole, who was yesterday crowned this week’s Rising Star nominee after an encouraging season in defence. “He’s given me a knee and he’s copped the award this week,” Kennedy said with a laugh. Cole addressed the incident at a press conference later in the morning. "It was a funny one," Cole said. "I didn't even know I did that until we looked at the vision after training. “It was just one of those things during training - we have knocks. It's a physical game. It was just a contest where we hit each other. I shouted him a coffee during the week, so we're all good now. “We're on good terms. It was a bit incidental. I didn't even know what happened.” Cole admitted he felt a little bad. "Yeah I do," he said. "He's a pretty important part of our team. But he forgave me pretty quick. Hopefully we get him back pretty soon." West Coast remain in second place following the Kangaroos loss, but face a fight to hold their all-important top-two spot over the last four weeks of the season. The Eagles travel to South Australia to take on fellow flag contenders Port Adelaide after this weekend’s derby, with Kennedy eyeing a return against the Power. “I’m hoping to - that’s the plan,” Kennedy said of a comeback against Port. “We’ve just got to make sure this settles and I can get through a bit of training this week. “If I can’t train this week, then it’s probably unlikely for next week.” Kennedy’s absence will be felt against the Dockers on Sunday, with the two-time Coleman Medallist having booted 19 goals in his past four derby outings.

    Training 19/4

    I dropped past for 15 mins and it looked like they nearly finishing up. I was down the Northern end and there was lots of one on one contested marking work between backs and forwards resulting in not too many marks but Lever looked good and was disposing of it well. Maxy was a lonely figure doing set shots for goals and of about the 10 shots I watched ranging from 20m -40m out, all but one went through the middle. His action looks completely different from the 2 misses he's had in round one and last week and seems to have his weight further forward and is only kicking off 3 steps. The opposite has to be said about Bugg. He was having repeated shots from the boundary and couldn't find the middle. Yuck !

    Who remembers the B side : "The Footy Song" ? It's pretty sad, but I remember it word for word.

    My 3 word player analysis V Carlton

    Totally agree - it was an amateur players effort. I don't care how long or why you've been out of the game, but get back into the contest and help a team mate out. I would love the high performance managers to put a heart rate monitor on some of our players and see how often they hit the red zone (90+% max heart rate).

    Simon Goodwin and Culture

    Quality individual, leading the way with a group of individuals acting as one. Goody will be our next premiership coach if he can have a full list to choose from.

    Demon Injuries 2017 season

    Just driving past training and stopped in. Jack Watts doing rehab running over about 40-50m at about 1/3 pace. I'd say he's quite a few weeks from playing.

    A Richmond mate invited me to join him at the "battle of the co-tenants". I pointed out that I would be attending a game on Friday night, but it is between a landlord and a one of their feral tenants.

    Will Malthouse be sacked ?

    When Carlton lose to Geelong this week and then to West Coast at Subiaco the week after, will the Carlton board consider sacking him after 4 straight losses ? I don't think so ! So for all you doomsday keyboard critics, hold tight as nothing can be gained from sacking a coach after 2 games. Malthouse was bought by Carlton to do a particular job, as was Neeld at Melbourne. So let's see what can be done by actually backing him in to do what he needs to do. - it's alway darkest just before the dawn !

    Caroline Wilson's descent into gutter journalism

    Where has the fire breathing dragon gone ? It's been two days without a scathing article. It seems the tide has turned on this argument and she has either headed back to the fiction section of her local library or has scampered off to her den to pick at some other rotting carcass. Hopefully the Demon's legal team will now come out and emulate St George and slay the dragon once and for all.

    Latest murmurings of a crazy time

    It looks like the club has done the right thing by these 3 players and have helped them find a new home. I think it's got nothing to do with the picks, but rather the club being up front that they were not in our future plans and such have helped them extend their careers, rather than going into the PS or national draft where they may well be overlooked.

    Let's stop screaming and start cheering!

    Some of you people seriously have to get it into your heads that the pick these guys were when drafted has absolutely nothing to do with their worth today. My sparkling new car when it drove off the production line in 2006 is probably now worth only about 25% of what I paid at the time. It's called market value. Gys and Cale may well have been shinny and new when drafted with all the optional extras, but the club has accepted that they were sold lemons and have traded them in for used vehicles with a solid build and proven reliability. I'm much happier to have a couple of 5 year old V8's over a brand new Prius. How many games were you expecting them to play in 2013? .......... Plenty at Casey I'm sure Great work Todd Viney, Tim Harrington & Mark Neeld
