As a Perth Based Demon, I do feel the need to make a few comments.
Admittedly I do go to Eagles Games (Wife is a supporter, but loves the Dees too). I have many friends who support either the Dockers or WCE. What has become apparent is the Docker supporters are done. They do not match WCE in an area and many who jumped on the train to Freo in 1995, are now jumping off it.
On field they are a rabble
Off field they are not looking to flash
their trades over the past years have been questionable
their members have been told to pay more for their seats (a lot more as they stuffed up the cats at Optus
Members are not renewing memberships
The coach is hated
The players from what I understand are not big on Fyfe (rumour)
Unfortunately they had a chance to secure the one thing that has been missing for a long time at Freo. It goes to show that Freo lack any smarts. They drafted down, and didn't get what they wanted. Lobb is a good player but had they got Hogan aswell!
I personally am glad they never got him and for Jesse sake hope he has a stellar year next year as a Coleman Medalist and Premiership player.
Good luck to Freo and I hope the Dee's play them at the G or Optus next year so i can attend and enjoy Hogan kicking 7 goals against them and listening to their supporters moan and groan, all 12 of them!
